LG Chocolate Review
In a nutshell: The LG Chocolate KG800 is a beautiful phone with
touch-sensitive keys that definitely scores 10 out of 10 when it comes
to looks! It's available in a choice of black, pink or lilac. It has
a built-in camera, music player and Bluetooth wireless connectivity.
The camera isn't the best and memory is limited, with enough space to
store around 30 songs. Other complaints include poor battery life and
overly-sensitive buttons. But despite these problems the Chocolate has
been near the top of the best-selling list for the past year. It's now
available incredibly cheaply and continues to sell rapidly, but stocks
will run out soon, so get yours now if you want one!
Review: June 2006. Updated September 2007.
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.
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.
Features of the LG Chocolate KG800 include:
- 1.3 megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom and flash
- Video camera
- Display: TFT, 256,000 colours, 176 x 220 pixels
- Music player (supports MP3, AAC, AAC+, AAC++ and WMA file formats)
- MP3 ringtones (64 voice polyphonic)
- Messaging: SMS, EMS, MMS, Email
- Java games
- Memory: 128 Mbytes
- Connectivity: Bluetooth 1.2, USB
- WAP 2.0
- Size: 95 x 48 x 15 mm
- Weight: 83g
- Battery standby: 200 hours

This phone is great and oh so pretty! Ok, yes it is basic, but people
please do remember it is what it says on the box... A PHONE! It has
a camera which is 'average'... if you want a digital camera... buy one!
It has MP3 which again is nothing special... so buy an ipod! I love
this phone its small enough for me to pop in my pocket with my lippy
on a girls night out and has a camera with a flash to capture those
moments that make memories without having to take my camera along too.
I also currently own (to name just a few) a SE K750i, a Nokia N90 and
N70 which are all great if you want a phone that does it all. But to
be honest on a day to day basis the Chocolate wins it does all that
is needed and looks damn fine too!! If you cant afford a digital camera
and/or mp3 player then dont get this phone as your free upgrade! Go
for a Nokia, Samsung or Sony Ericsson instead! Those of you that chose
this phone expecting too much perhaps you should have used some common
sense and done a bit of research first, then you wouldn't feel the need
to complain about a phone that does everything that it told you it would!
For all those of you with a sweet tooth, enjoy... this phone is very
aptly named! :o)

I was really looking forward to receiving this phone, however, i feel

with, are great and make the phone easy to use, however, when needing
a phone to do phone things, it sucks!! Writing a text message is such
a hassle, buttons work only when they want to, you can't hear text message
tones, connecting to a call and being able to hear nothing, lack of
reception in areas i had full reception on my D500, awful battery life

phone... I said 'Hi Sexy Baby' BUT just like a man it let me down! It
was annoying I found the dials very hard to use as they were very sensitive
but also that text thing with the capital letters was annoying too.
It looked nice but what use was a phone if you can't even hear if you
get a text or a missed call? Like Hellllooo ! I tried it for a week
but found myself taking the sim out to put back in my old phone to text
and make a call quickly.. ok I know you have to get used to new phones
but this was beyond a joke. Anyways, i have sent it back and my new

I did own this phone but only for a few days as i have just took it
back and swapped for the samsung e900,not that i think this phone is
bad,as i don't.This is the first and only lg phone i have had and was
quite happy with it but as i am a samsung junkie the samsung gave me
more of what i need and want from a phone.I think the chocolate phone
was very sexy,small and a joy to use apart from a few things 1)as i
make use of picture phonebook,i had to keep the pics small to use them,so
they looked really bad and it was a hassle changing camera settings
2)when i wanted to change the sound effect volume off it turns the slide
tone off too,whicj i like having on my phone.So it's either put up with
the annoying tune it makes when you confirm something or have the slide
tone silent-very annoying 3)why for gods sake are the message tones
so quiet,they are the most ridiculously quiet tones i have ever (just)heard,a
nightmare when people are moaning at you cuz you haven't text back.Bu
t they were the only gripes i had.I was happy with the amount of memory,the
battery was ok and the touchpads i had no problem with at all,they were
great.I thought for a 1.3 mega pixel camera the pics were very clear
and sharp and was very happy with it.So in all i think people should
buy this phone if they are interested and just see for themselves if
they can get used to the keys.But then,if you want a better camera feature
and more memory go for samsung e900,hope this helps. P.S this phone
is not just for chavs and find it insulting as i am a 29 yr old married
woman,it's for all ages and either sex. have fun with your new phone

Hi, I have had this phone for 4 weeks now, so I speak with some authority.
The phone will ultimatley appeal to those who put style ahead of functionality.
It is a handsome phone & even the packaging has not escaped the designers
touch. I have rated this phone 3 stars. I have knocked 2 off for: 1.
When writing texts in predictive mode, on finishing a sentence with
a full stop the next sentence does not automatically start with a capital
letter (as my Nokia did). It may sound like a small issue (especially
to those who neither use proper punctuation or spelling), however it
is really, really frustrating. 2. For some reason, any animations that
I download onto the handset run slowly. 3. When calling, on occasion
the person on the other end can hear me talking, though I can't hear
them. 4. The battery life is poor. There are many better phones on the
market. But there are none that in my opinion are better looking. This
handset has firmly placed LG in amongst the big boys. Until this phone
came along, who do you know who had an LG mobile? It is a reasonably
good phone that in this day & age should have been better. A flawed

I love this litte fone, I'm a bit of a mobile junky and have had lots
of different ones in my time. The looks are second to none, reminds
me of the impact the Motorola V3 had in its time. It is just a lovely
looking piece of kit. The accessories and software are good too, I love
the little velvet pouch and the screen cleaner. It works very well as
a plug and play storage device, camera is good too, if slightly fidly
to use. I find texing very good, and although the buttons are small
they are easy to use. The touch sensitive buttons do take a little ajusting
to, but only about 1/2 hr or so. Screen is stunning, and menu fine.It
sits well in ones hand, and feels good too. I have had no probs with
function, so perhaps I got a good batch, (Bought it SIM free). On the
down side the message tone could do with being louder!! OK so perhaps
the storage is a little low for MP3's, but I use an ipod nano for that,
come to think of it if u like the ipod nano you will love this little
fone too. At the end of the day this is not a smartphone, nor does it
claim to be, so I guess you just have to think what you want, as for
me I like something stunning, that does the job (ie be a phone), and
this, for me, is the best so far...

Theres been many bad reviews about this phone, either "oh the touch
keys are too sensitive" or "it breaks easily". Ok it's fair saying the
keys are too sensitive, but i can assure you it doesn't break, other
people complaining it does, must of had a faulty batch, i've had mine
for a month so far and there hasn't been a single problem wrong with
this phone. Now to actually talk about the phone: I'm not going to go
crazy saying, this phone is brilliant, buy it!! or this phone is rubbish,
im gona say about both parts to this phone. Positives: As everyone has
said the phone is quite possibly one of the sleekest phones out in th
market today, an upcoming rival to this phone might be the new Samsung
E900 though also with Touch Sensitive keys. The touch keys can sometimes
be a tad frustrating when u accedently call someone as soon as you slide
it up (possibly due to my clumsiness),but they are a lot easier to use
and is easy to navigate through the menu and whatevrer you want to do.
The Screen is easily read and clear even when your out in the sun (not
that its always sunny in the UK). It does come with quite a few Polyphonic
ringtones even though you should stick to having your own mp3 songs
on it, the mp3 player on it is easy to use and quite surprisingly loud,
compared to my friends phone, the sony ericcson w810i the loudness was
about the same. It has all the basic essentials as to what every phone
has these days (i.e bluetooth, wap, video recorder and camera with flash).
Also someone said about the touch keys being slow, that must of been
a faulty phone as it isn't slow at all. Now for the bad parts: As i
said earlier the touch keys can be a little over sensitive so you might
need to get used to it which i have now so it didn't take that long.
To some people the text font size on the texts may seem a little small,
you can change the text size, but it reverts back to normal after you've
sent a text or gone out of the text, so that can get quite tedious.
Most phones these days have large memory or the flash cards you can
put into them to expand your memory, this doesn't really have either
as it only has about 128mb and can hold about 25-30 songs (a lot more
if you can size them down, which doesn't really affect the quality).
For all those people who love playing games on their mobile when they're
bored this really isn't the phone for you, it only comes with 1, yes
1 game on it, and it's also sudoko, really fun if you're into that thing,
but not many people are. Also sometimes the camera can be a little slow
taking pictures. So that about sums up the phone, Make your own mind
up what you think about the phone, im not pressuring you to BUY IT or
telling you to AVOID IT, i just gave the basic details of the phone.
So have fun deciding whether to get it or not and I hope this review
helps you a lot. Will

I mean, with a radio sometimes you're stuck listening to stuff you don't

kept ringing people from inside my bag which drained all my credit.
This is also extremel difficult to use, sonehow you would press touch
it to do something and it insisted on doing the opposite. I also called
somebody the morning after I bought it and they could hear me but i
couldn;t her a thing, not even the ring. I found the menus fair enough
to use but the battery life was appalling. I certainly wouldn't recommend
this phone to anybody - and certainly don't buy it for its looks, its
really not worth it. I took the phone back and changed it for a Samsung
E770 - I should have stuck with Samsung in the first place.

This phone looks innovative & classy and feels good quality however
it scratches very easily; the alarm won't work if the phone is switched
off (so no good if you set it to wake you and switch your phone off
at night); the predictive text is awkward & time consuming (no problem
if you "text-speak" though as you can't be bothered to use proper words
let alone punctuation or capital letters ... still an easy way of communicating
if your english is down at "chav-level". Decide what you want from a
phone before you just go and buy what your friends have and you shouldn't
end up with a model that you then use all your time slagging off. :)

I think this phone puts LG on the map. On the upside the chocolate has
a sleek fairly original design with an inovative function. The slick
black finish is complimented when the pad lights up, i feel this would
have been even better if LG left the silver center piece off this would
only enhance it's mystery. Size and weight, fine, functions, not high
tech but gives a little of everything. On the down side, can you answer
it without opening it? the loudest ring is still quiet. A good partner
in style to my other phone the Nokia 8800

Hi I bought this phone last week on T-mobile and it looks quality. The
menu system works well and the camera is a pretty standard 1.3mp. I'm
sorry to write though about the touch sensitive cursor pad ........it

I can't understand why this phone is being marketed as a phone for music
lovers when you can only hold 128mb worth of music and no way of inserting
a memory card. It doesn't make sense! I bought this phone because I
love lg phones and I always listen to music on my phones so it made
sense but I've now changed to a Sony Ericsson W810 because it holds
more tunes (and you can change memory cards)and it has a radio. Much
better value I'd say! If you buy a phone solely on looks then this is
the one for you as it's beautiful but if you want a PROPER mp3 shop

Although sometimes frustrating to use, I found that this phone was just

your out having a laugh with your mates and the video is good quality
too (however, nothing special). The touch controls are sometimes annoying,
just like an I-pod's, but you get used to it after a while. The ringtone
and text alert volume is very poor, however this was not a problem for
me, as my phone is constantly on silent. All I need from a phone is

This phone is excellent! I've had it a week and its not been any trouble

the battery life isn't great, but hey its a tiny phone that does an
awful lot so its forgiveable. the 1.3 mp flash camera gives a crisp,
clear quality and the functional layout of the phone makes it a pleasure
to use and text with. I was also surprised (LG being a less established
manufactuer) at the outstanding quality of the materials used, which
is something lacking in a majority of its rivals, especially for such
a tiny phone. This alone justifies its above average price tag. for

I've just upgraded from the D500 to the Chocolate and can't help but
feel I've made a mistake in not waiting for the E900. The phone looks
very stylish and has certainly impressed all those who I've flashed
it at, the camera quality is much better than the D500 (both are 1.3m
pixels) as is the screen quality but that's as much as I can boast about
the phone. The slide feels fragile, and the oh so shinny case is a bugger
to keep clean even if you keep it in its little 'gay' bag. The touch
sensitive buttons are extremely sensitive and in the last couple of
days I've accidentally called three people. The T9 txt input is not
as easy as Samsung’s. The speaker is too quiet to hear when the
phone is ringing (especially when an MP3 is set), and there are only
4 choices of message tone's which are even quieter than the ring tones.
It lacks quite a few features which I've taken as granted with the D500.

I have had the LG for around a week now and I am happy with it. I wanted
a small phone that did the basics and I wasn't bothered about it having
a huge memory, flashy camera or video calling etc. I admit the battery
life isn't great but it doesn't bother me as it's no hassle to charge
it. The contact picture thing that someone else mentioned is annoying
at first but who cares?! The phone is light and small and easy to use.
Great for me. The only thing that is annoying is that the phone does
not rescale pics to send like the Nokias do. So if you take a pic that
is over 100kb you cannot send it via MMS. Also you cannot send video
over MMS at all.

I love this phone. No mobile phone is perfect, and while there are little
things about it that bug me (the placement of the side buttons, the
the feather light touch required to operate the control pad, the proprietary
head phone jack), the good def. out weighs the bad. They're not selling
this phone in the US yet, and it was well worth the money. Mind you,
I also have a Motorola Q phone that I use during the day-it's my smart
phone. My day to day needs require that I have access to all my email
accounts and that people be able to get ahold of me on short notice,
but I take my Chocolate with me at night and on Weekends when it's just
about having fun and looking cute. If you're just looking for a solid

then you should probably move on.

Reviewed by Hawkeye from United Kingdom on 30th
There is no doubt that this phone is very beautiful to look at, but
it has some serious drawbacks as a useful mobile. As others have noted,
the battery life and memory are poor. It is very light, which is good,
but prone to scratching in the same way as an iPod nano, for example.
LG provide a decent quality velvet pouch and a screen polisher logo/lanyard
which is a nice touch to keep the phone free of smudges - which it gets
if you merely exist in the same room as it. The slide feels very fragile
after using a Samsung D500 for so long. The touch buttons are a nice
design, but very sensitive and one finds oneself going back all the
time having brushed the wrong button. Personally, I found it difficult
adjusting to using the feather-light touch buttons for menu navigation
and then thumping the fairly heavy keypad buttons to write texts. The
navigation interface is well thought out and easy to learn, but there
are some elements that make no sense - for example, associating a photo
with a contact is an absolute trial of frustation and patience (you
can only take new pictures at a tiny 72x72, not load previous photos).
The supplied ringtones are awful, and so are the message tones. At least
you can replace the ringtones with a mp3 - except the phone randomly
forgets that you made an mp3 the ringtone. There are hardly any wallpapers,
but those that are supplied are very stylish. It is easy to connect
the phone to a computer just as a USB drive device - no software needed.
(This applies to Apple Mac users - my MacBook Pro connected immediately,
file transfer is a doddle, but the phone won't eject cleanly). The organiser/calendar
is adequate but nothing to write home about. It doesn't synchronise
with a Mac (nothing new there then). The documentation is barely adequate
and not that well structured or indexed. To sum up, this is a fashion
phone entirely, not a workaday model. A great one-night stand that your
mates might envy you for, but not marriage material. Pull it out of
its velvet cover once a day to impress, and you'll be laughing. Actually
use it, and you might be disappointed - or it might break - I'll be
interested to see how many of these last the 18 month contracts most
are being sold with. Mine's going back in favour of a Samsung.

many other phones on the market with far more gadgets and extra's so

the touch pad and huge screen are great and the way in which the camera
is protected when the slide is closed is very clever - love the way
this delicate phone comes with a cleaner and pouch for protection!!
Simple to use and fast! It's drawbacks are: rubbish battery life, 4
days max (I have already taken mine back to the shops and asked for
a new battery i was so disappointed!) and would be even better if it
had a memory card in it although the memory isn't too bad and the camera
is great. DONT load the software that it comes with onto your comp,
it crashed mine and it's totally unnecassary - its still possible to
download things onto your phone and upload thing from your phone onto
your comp without the software. All in all, i love the phone as i am

128m memory is poor, no radio, 1.3 meg camera is also a bit poor these

Quite clearly from the other reviews you can tell this phone is aimed

The LG Chockolate would ahve got 5 stars if 1)The battery performance
was better (4 days at best) and 2)You could use memory cards to boost
the on board 128MB. Still, having previously owned a string of high
spec Nokia and Motorola phones, I'm completely sold on this LG. The
menus structure is excellent, allowing you quick access to messaging,
contacts, profiles and scheduler. In addition to this a single press
of the up arrow gets you a favourites list you can personalise. This
gives fast access to 9 favourite items that you can set up for whatever
you want. The MP3 player is superb quality even with 64Bit audio. The
touch screen works very well, and the "hidden" screen feature is very
sleak. Signal performance is as excellent. A well built tri-band phone.
