LG Cookie Lite review
|Review: September 2010|
Last updated April 2012
In a nutshell: The Cookie Lite is a tiny touchscreen phone with entry-level features. Undoubtedly cute, it's available in black and pink, and would make a great first phone.
Today's best buy: LG T300 Cookie Lite black/ti ... from Amazon (£0)
The LG Cookie Lite is a cute little phone that's great as an entry-level product. It's a miniaturised Cookie, with a smaller resistive touchscreen and a camera with only 1.3 megapixels and no flash. It's got half the memory of the original Cookie, although it does have an MP3 player, FM radio and a 3.5mm audio jack. The Cookie Lite makes sense if you're looking for a tiny, lightweight and very cheap phone for a young teenager. If you want more, consider the Orange Rio II or the Samsung Tocco Lite.
LG Cookie Lite features include:
- 1.3 megapixel camera with digital zoom
- Video recording
- Touch sensitive screen: TFT resistive touchscreen, 262k colours, 240 x 320 pixels (2.4 inches)
- Music player (MP3/AAC/AAC+/AAC++/WMA formats)
- FM radio
- Messaging: SMS, MMS, Email
- T9 predictive text
- MP3 ringtones
- Java 2.0 games
- Phonebook (1000 names)
- Memory: 20MB plus microSD memory card slot (up to 4GB)
- Connectivity: USB 2.0, Bluetooth 2.1, 3.5mm audio jack
- Internet: WAP 2.0, GPRS, EDGE, web browser
- Vibration alert
- Quad band
- Size: 96 x 50 x 12 mm
- Weight: 77g

Have to punch it to get screen to actually respond to anything,
VERY sssllloooowwww Have timed it in the past took no less than 8mins 23secs to load my pictures
Can't listen to music while texting
VERY Hard to break
I own it, and by the look of things, so do many other unfortunate people.

This phone is not a very good buy. When I got this phone thought it looked quite good for the price but it wasn't. The screen is very small and quite hard to control, which is a big problem. Also when I had this phone in my bag, when it banged against the other items it started to ring people and waste all my credit. It doesn't have a very efficient lock pad.
I don't think this phone is very good, and I would save up for a better one because it is just a waste of money.
I don't recommend this phone to anyone- even my worst enemy.

Good things about this phone:
Like my old Nokia,impossible to break
And has a screen
Bad things about this phone:
This is a phone that suits 7 or 8 year olds,so if you are 10 or over you need something like a Samsung galaxy ace,htc desire,iPhone,blackberry or a custom phone
Reply by AlastairG from UK on 30th
I'm over 10 and don't need a Samsung galaxy ace, htc, desire etc. I carry on my business very successfully without any of the above - we're being conned into thinking we need these toys!!!

My brother gave me this as a spare. Resistive touchscreen so not as responsive as a Samsung or iPhone - what do you expect for the price? You can calibrate the screen which will improve touch accuracy. Keyboard is a pain but I find all touchscreen keybpards a pain.
Camera ok outside in bright daylight, not for anything else.
Biggest negative is the pc link software: not bundled and once you've trawled the internet for the program it is utterly useless. Worse than useless, a total timewaster that simply does not work. A major criticism of LG here and I've had the same problem with every LG I've ever had, from the pre-iPhone Prada to this.
Buy a microSD along with the phone if you want to keep sound and vision files. I use it as an mp3 player while travelling, with the occasional call or text. For that it's fine.

This phone's touch screen is basically defective. Typing a text is a tedious and frustrating experience, since the phone always reads the wrong buttons. When buying a phone in this price range I would rather recommend a phone with good ol' reliable hard keys.

LG cookie lite is a good phone but it can be really slow sometimes. the camera is really good though-never blurs.Sometimes the touch calibration is dodgy and sometimes if you touch the screen it dosen't respond. apart from that it was a very good buy ☻

Ok this is a cheap phone good as a basic but is really basic! You can barely fit 1 song on if you delete everything else. Unless you get a memory expand which I suggest you should. I loved this phone when I first got it but now hate it even though I'm 12 it does not reach my standards.

This is an ok phone, the main problems are that when it says touchscreen, you have to press really hard onto the screen as it is not sensitive or responsive, the camera is relatively good, but the responsive is appauling. for its price however it is ok
Reviewed by Duke from UK on 9th Oct 2011
Atrocious phone. Does not come with any way of connecting to a PC to transfer files and, if you somehow manage to get hold of a USB cable, you have to manually seek out and download an equally atrocious piece of software which still doesn't work, despite apparently supporting the phone. The phone itself has an incredibly glitchy touchscreen, the text input for text messages is about as functional as a chocolate fireguard and its (in)ability to multi-task makes your average bloke look like a multi-tasking king. I honestly cannot understand how LG have even marketed this phone. It is absolute tosh and infuriating to use.

BAD POINTS :- The memory was a major disappointment. I was only able to take a few pictures and download a few songs before I couldn't open any files... Also, the if you like taking pictures, the quality is poor. GOOD POINTS:- It is small and lightweight, cheap, good sound quality, good for internet browsing, has radio, and mp3. The widgets look bright and cool.

I just recently got my new cute phone and I love it!It's cute, compact, and light. Super handy. Never mind that it doesn't have wifi(I don't really use wifi that much) because it has all the features I would need in a phone. It's super affordable too. I love the features and the camera takes really good pictures. It's really, super great for a tiny gadget you just have to check it out.

Just got this phone for £40 on pay as you g0 -my first phone of this type and got on fine with it. PROS - layout of menu etc is very intuitive - snazzy touchscreen with full qwerty on-screen or handwriting recognition - screen lock and unlock system is the best i have used - very stylish and understated in black/grey, generally feels of excellent quality despite not being heavy (77g) - was surprised at how good speaker is - joy to have a 3.5mm jack on it :) even sounds tight on big sennheiser headphones + can connect to anything if you have the right lead - calls are clear and rich on phone and on speakerphone - i lke the fact that its tiny - astonishing value - upto 4gb micro SD (not supplied) CONS - not for people who use t'internet a lot i think given the size (under 4" by 2" by 12mm) - would like more options during music playback and the full title of track on screen - although photos seem fairly clear it is only a 1.3-megapixel camera so dont expect miracles and there is no flash - no headphones or or USB cable for PC SUMMARY A well equipped and no-fuss entry level touchscreen mobile, pleasing to the eye and pleasant to use for what i thought was a great price and could even have got it for £30 in another store apparently! Just need to buy a cable,memory card and some headphones if you dont have any already.

Any1 who says this phone is bad are wrong. Great little phone. Really rugged, fallen out of my pocket on my bike and still not broken. The back does come off it just hard when brand new. I love the qwerty keyboard in touch form. Had mine since just before Christmas 2010 and never froze, never has since. Perfect phone for me.

This phone is rubbish. The screen is not very sensitive, storage space on it is tiny, nothing will save on a memory card and it keeps turning itself off. I would never recommend this phone to anyone as well as never recommending any other lg phones because every single lg phone i have had turns itself off just after the 1st month.
