LG Chocolate review

 Review: June 2006  
 

Last updated September 2007

In a nutshell: The LG Chocolate is a beautiful phone with touch-sensitive keys that definitely scores 10 out of 10 when it comes to looks!

Best buy: LG KG800 Chocolate from Amazon Marketplace UK (£89.99)

 

From time to time a phenomenonally original phone is released. The LG KG800 (nicknamed the LG Chocolate) is one such phone. In an age when pink seems to be the "in" colour, the LG is brown (very dark - almost black) with a beautiful gloss finish and sliver detailing. The idea that it looks like a bar of chocolate is tenuous, but it's definitely an eye-catcher, and the more that you see the cooler it gets.

A sliding phone, when closed the Chocolate just looks mysterious. It's dark, with a dark LCD screen, and just an LG logo and a silver OK button to give any clue about what to do with it. The hidden keypad is touch sensitive and glows red when in use. When opened, the full keypad is available. There are also buttons around the edge for volume control and multimedia - MP3, camera and video. The design works well and looks fantastic, although the touch-sensitive keys are quite sensitive and take a little getting used to.

Feature-wise, the Chocolate comes with a 1.3 megapixel camera (with flash) and a video camera. The display is high quality. The Chocolate has an MP3 player that can handle a wide range of formats. Music can be controlled from the touch pad or with the inline remote control supplied with the handset. A headset is included and this plugs into the charging port. MP3 ringtones are supported, and there's 128 Mbytes of memory which is pretty good, although a memory card option would have been nice to have. Both wireless Bluetooth connectivity and USB are supported. Interestingly the Chocolate can function as a mass storage device with software to enable photos, videos and music tracks to be dragged and dropped between phone and PC.

The Chocolate is quite slim and compact and weighs just 83g, making it an ideal handbag companion. Equally it will easily fit into a jeans pocket. The keypad is sensitive to touch and heat, so it won't be activated when in a bag. Battery life is below average and the phone will need charging every few days.

The Chocolate is definitely a cool phone to be seen with but it does have its problems. The touch sensitive buttons look fantastic, but have been known to drive people insane! The Chocolate is also not the most reliable phone ever, and suffers from poor battery life. Before buying, also consider the Samsung E900 and the newer LG Shine. If you decide to buy the Chocolate you'll find some incredible deals online.

the original idea was to have a slender mobile phone with a concealed keypad which you have to slide up the screen to reveal the keys it was mainly designed for women to put in thier handbag for a night out on the ritz but the pitfall about the lg chocolate phones was viewing wap video content from youtube with its poor capabilitie but the phone is great to have fun with but the other pittfall was doing short videos the quality is so poor so i would not bother just use it for making calls and sending text messages but the main pitfall about them were listening to mp3s and viewing video content because it drains the batterie but a hit for the ladies it's not realy a gents phone . frankie smales (frankie smales tv and movie review uk)

I've had the LG Chocolate for 3 years and I love it. However it has it's floors. The internet, lets face it, is absolutely useless. I've never got it to work. The camera is poor and runs the battery down really quick. The phone told me it had 3 bars, I switched the camera on for about 2 seconds and then my phone switcjed its self off cus it had no power left. Thats another things, you can't tell when it's out of power. I was once texting my friend with 4 bars battery, I stopped texting and it told me I had 2 bars. I put it in my pocket to consevre the power and took it out moments later to find it had 3 bars. I texted 'Sorry got 2 go' to my mate and then it had 4 bars. I then thought 'yay' and switched on some music. I was half way through beyonce when it told me I had no power and turned itself off. Charge it every night. Seriously. It's really a big fault the battery. If you play music for over 2 minutes or keep the low resolution camera on for more than 5, it'll turn it self off. Some things I've never got to work, like pictures for my contact book and the clock, but I still love this phone. I don't know what it is I actually love it! It has all these terrible faults but I still love it! It does ages though. I have to now text with a pencil end cuz the keypad doesn't work and I have to keep my fingers on the touch screen buttons for atleast 4 seconds for it to do anything. My advice is if you want a long lasting phone DON'T BUY IT If you want good internet DON'T BUY IT If you don't give FOR GODS SAKE BUY IT!!

I recently bought this phone, it soon started acting up within 7 days of purchase! The volume of the ring tone is too low, signal is poor 90% of the time so you cannot recieve calls, unless the other phone is right next to you or is in the same location which makes this phone pretty pointless. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME, buy any other phone just not this one!!!!!!!! As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. I sure did.

Also the mms doesnt seem to work eventhough it is meant to. Despite all of this it is reliable but i thinkk you should get the new one which is alot better. I have had no problems with this phone for freezing or any of that.

Its a good phone. The only thing is the battery life on my kg800 I found a way around it. If you leave the slide down for 20 mins then it goes up some battery so I dont need to charge it. With the mp3 it has good sound but there is one problem with it. When you listen to music your battery life goes down easily. Yes I do get alot of finger marks but I guess I just have to clean them off. But I dont use the mp3 player cuz of battery so I buyed an ipod!.

~*~ This is admittedly quite a long review, but it's all true, based on experience, and not aiming to criticise anyone for their views on this phone (though some of the previous reviews are a bit on the incomprehensible side as they appear to have been posted by people who write like lolcats... ;-) ) ~*~ OK, maybe I'm behind the times (retro-chic ;-) ) here, but I have an LG Chocolate [KG800] and it's nearly 2010...I've had my phone since Feb 2007, and it's not broken or unusable despite being dropped on several occasions, and it only has barely-visible scratches (to be fair, I do keep it in a case most of the time, which is slightly thicker than the pouch that came with the phone, which I've never actually used). I'm not enough of a phone addict to need a new mobile every five minutes (metaphorically), so I don't mind that it perhaps doesn't have all the latest features that an iPhone for instance might have - I'm quite content with the Hangman game I downloaded after the included Sudoku got boring as it was pretty easy. I'm also not one of those people who's constantly glued to their mobile like it's a life support machine, which is perhaps why it seems to have lasted so well...and also why I can't comment on the quality of predictive text because despite only being 25 I'm obviously not down-with-the-kids enough to feel comfortable using it, so I barely ever have. I don't fully agree with those who say the ringtones are too quiet; in fact, with the volume up to 5 (the maximum), the default tunes included in the phone's Sounds folder play at a practically ear-splitting volume. (The first one, Etude, sounds especially piercing at full volume so I tend to avoid accessing that folder...) I have all of my phone's sounds turned right up because this particular phone is quite small and has a habit of vanishing into the depths of my bag (where the sounds may not be as clear as the manufacturers intended), and my hearing can be a bit rubbish sometimes. Occasionally this means that by the time I've unearthed my phone, it's stopped ringing - it would be useful if there was a way of making it ring for longer before stopping (and going to voicemail) - and in case anyone's about to suggest using a longer song as a ringtone, I suspect that wouldn't make any difference. Some of the sounds seem a lot louder than others - for instance, the 'message sent' and 'low battery' noises aren't especially subtle if you're in a fairly quiet place (like at work, perhaps), but the sound when you slide the phone open/closed seems much more gentle. Maybe it's just due to my choices of sounds/alerts, or some fluke of my hearing, though. With my MP3 ringtone, I was able to make it extra-loud by converting it into a wav on my laptop, increasing the volume several times, and turning it back into an MP3 again - a bit fiddly, but fairly easy if you have the software and know-how. Another thing regarding ringtones...if you set an MP3 as your ringtone but the phone keeps playing something else when you're called, you need to go into the Contacts menu, go down to Caller groups, and set the MP3 [or several different MP3s if you prefer] as the ringtone for each group. This either wasn't mentioned in the instructions, or wasn't obvious - I only found out via Yahoo! Answers(!) I agree with some of the down-sides of this phone - for instance, the battery always seems to have run out while I wasn't looking just as I want to take a picture or make a call, and sometimes seems to go from one 'bar' of charge back up to two or three, then down to one again all of a sudden for no obvious reason. I don't leave my phone switched on all the time, and it seems to run out more quickly than I'd expect, which is frustrating. I can't remember whether the battery used to hold the charge for longer when the phone was new, so I don't know if this is normal for a roughly three-year-old battery. Some people on eBay sell (supposedly) higher capacity batteries that are compatible but not made by LG, which sound like a good idea but I don't know if they'd work as well as the sellers claim. I also agree that the shiny surface is an absolute stain-magnet. Things like fingerprints, tears, sweat or make-up that accidentally find their way onto the phone's glossy surface tend to cling to it rather more readily than I'd like. (However, one of my younger cousins once had great fun polishing my phone with the little cleaner thing that came with it, so it's not all bad :-) ) Additionally, I agree with whoever said about the camera being slow - it's annoying for taking pictures of things like animals that aren't good at staying still because it takes ages to open in the first place, then ages to save the picture. Another issue that nobody here has mentioned (so maybe it's just my phone being quirky) is that photos don't seem to be in any particular order in the photo album (especially if you've just taken them and haven't got round to giving them proper titles yet)...they're in a roughly chronological order but with a few recent pics thrown in amongst the older ones, then some new-ish ones, then a few I took last Autumn. It just doesn't make sense. I also wish the voice recorder could record longer and louder clips. To anyone who's still insistent that this is a chav phone, the chavs must have moved on because in all honesty I've barely noticed anyone - chav or otherwise - with a phone the same as mine in the time since I bought my one. A couple of my sister's friends used to have them (in different colours, I think) but they weren't overly chavvy people. I'm about as un-chav as they come, being an individualistic Trekkie with an honours degree, who sometimes gets mistaken for a Goth and uses accurate punctuation in text messages whenever possible...! I didn't buy this phone as a status symbol, or because my favourite celebrity has one (to be honest my favourite celeb probably has a really basic phone as she's not too great with technology!) - I bought it because I'm a chocoholic and therefore liked the name, and the slide-opening and the red lights of the touch-sensitive controls struck me as vaguely Star Trek. I also think it's a nice touch that the packaging resembles a chocolate box...my phone's named Bourneville because it's a dark Chocolate. ;-) Summary: Main bad point(s) - the Chocolate loses a star because the battery life seems annoyingly short (doesn't help that I sometimes forget to charge it!) Main good point(s) - does what I need it to do [as long as the battery's charged], and is still in virtually as-new condition (if you overlook the smudges that typically adorn its casing) after almost three years so is obviously more substantial than its reputation suggests.

If you blutooth a song over, it goes into extras, not songs. And you cant move them! Whats more, the battery life is rubbish, and you have to pay a fortune for games (no apps!).

Neat phone, a bit on the feminine side. Colour's great. I've had no prob with message tones or dropped calls. However, reception is a challenge, the buttons don't work if the battery is low (which is every 24 or so hours), and you can't answer calls if the headset is plugged in. The biggest disappointment for me, and I think this is pretty dumb for a phone, the number pad has no backlight. That means... YOU CAN'T SEE TO MAKE CALLS IN THE DARK!!!! I'm glad I got that out! It's the dumbmest way to spoil a neat phone. That affects the rating big time in my opinion.

I bought the LG Chocolate about a year and a half ago, and at first I loved it - but, I've found that the phone doesn't have much memory, my battery runs out really quickly and its quite unreliable. Sometimes the battery won't even last a day! But that could just be my battery. I've also found that it's quite slow to work most of the time. However, I've still found it a good phone, with a suitable camera and I still love the look of it! I also think the applications are pretty cool and the mp3 player is fairly good. Calls are easy to make and receive. I can overlook most of the little problems, but my main complaint is the battery life, it's really unreliable.

i have this phone at the moment currently searching for a new one. it is a good fone but is easily scratched. ive had it for almost 2 years and the keypad plays up. it does its own thing. the camera quality and become worse since it was first bought and the music memory is poor. it holds lots of pictures though.The sound quality is not fantasic but it is a decent phone.

I've had the LG chocolate for about 1 and a half, and i had to get it repaired after about 6 months. The battery life isn't great, and after taking a video or a few pictures, the battery is nearly drained. The same with listening to a few songs. It is good looking but the screen scratches very easily and the touch buttons are very sensitive. Despite these flaws, it is a good size and i got a good price for it, 39 :)

If you are on a contract for more than a year, don't get this phone! I was really excited when I first got this phone; I though it was great. Boy was i wrong... Camera: This phone only holds around 20 pictures- yes you heard me, 20!! Not only that, but it doesn't even have a memory card so you cant transfer the pics to the computer. Continuing on about the camera, it does have flash which is good but there are only a few editing options like colour tones(4: Normal,Sepia,b&w,negative) You can't put text on the pics or funny hats or frames so im not loving the camera part. As for the video, if you're filming somthing that's still then it would be a great recorder. The videos come out blurry and you cant hear what people are saying when you play back the movie. And I can't figure out zoom. Texting: Texting is quite easy on this phone. I love how easy it is to move your fingers on the slick keys. Though they are small, you can quickly get your message across. Of course it's not full qwerty but I easliy picked up the t9word method of texting. Calls: "WHAT?? MOM I CAN"T HEAR YOU!!" Horrible call quality. I also found that beacause it is touch sensitive i have hung up on people by "touching" 'end call' with my cheek when I'm speaking. When it goes into a call the keys go off so you can't touch them, but because i have to use the volume rocker at the side of the phone to always higher the volume, the touch sensitve keys light up so I touch them with my cheek there for ending calls (After like 2 mins of talking to my self then wondering why no one answered I look at the screen and it's the screen saver! Ugggh) One cool thing is i love that you can coutomize the pic for each person and it will pop up when it rings ( remember you can only store 20 photos) Design: Clearly this phone is gorgous,untill you scratch the screen and you can't see anything beacuse the scratches and finger prints.It has a great slide out key board and over sensitive keys. Sadly this phone is not durable :( The back where my battery pack is just broke an no longer snaps in (this happened like 45 mins ago that's why im writing this) I take really good care of my electroics and yet the phone still gets chipped on the side! Music: I don't use the music player beause my phone isnt detected by the computer! So thats all i have to say about that. Overall: A pretty no-customizable cute annoying ok phone which i almost gartuteee u will hate within a year. Any ways i can go on forever about this but the phone isnt good so why would i want to?? xoxoxo Trina

Hmm... yes... An ok phone with ok features... does what it says on the tin. Pros: Easy to use interface, ok camera, good looking. Cons: Annoying little sounds that you really don't need, Annoyng touch buttons.

I'm sorry, but this was definantly the worst phone I've ever had, and I bought a phone for 15.00. The camera never worked, and it was rubbish, I had to take it back 5 times, no kidding. It kept on breaking. And the guy I sent it back to said that these phones always break. It scratches REALLY easily, and the buttons are was to over sencored. I could just miss the OK button, an it would press ring, kind of thing. It looks nice, but it isn't what it seems

I've had this phone for about three years now, I've managed to go through four of them, all of them breaking from simple things such as falling off my bedside table. The battery life is quite poor after about a year and will only last for about three days, which can get annoying. If you're wanting a camera phone this is not the phone for you with its 1.3 magapixel camera, and the videocamera is nearly useless. Also it only stores 300 texts which gets very annoying. The touch buttons are too sensitive, I often find myself hanging up on people if I put the phone to my ear or calling people y accident when I've just got the phone in my hand. but it is a cheap little phone so not too bad as a temporary phone or something along those lines

I thought this phone was attractive, good value for money and easy to use at first - so i thought this would last me for a long time but after only having it for a week i dropped it for the first time from a very low distance and it is now completely broke so all in all i think this is a very unrelyable phone as all the other phones i have had i have dropped them atleast ten times from a very high distance and they have never broke. So i definitley wouldnt recommend this phone as it is not a very practicle phone at all. I have been well and truly ripped off :(.

I got this phone a few months ago and I loved it. Everybody warned me not to get it as they said that they always break but I got it anyway. Found it easy to use, the touch sensitive buttons were fine, got about 30 songs on there and the battery wasn't a noticable problem. However within 6 weeks it broke. I took it back and got a replacement. Again, loved it, thought it was beautiful and just amazing for the price. But it broke again, this time within the first 2 months. Wish I'd listened to everyone. They always break apparantly. Bad Times.
