LG KS360 review

 Review: October 2008  

Last updated July 2009

Rating: 4 stars

In a nutshell: The key feature of the LG KS360 is its slide-out keypad, which makes it a perfect phone for keen texters or emailers.

Today's best buy: LG KS360 Orange Pay As You G ... from Amazon (£79.99)



Fancy an iPhone for about one tenth of the price? Step right up! OK, the KS360 isn't really like an iPhone, but it's a pretty snazzy phone nevertheless.

It's smaller than an iPhone, although quite heavy and chunky, with a thickness of 17mm. But that's because the phone has a full slide-out QWERTY keypad. If you like texting, then you're going to love this phone! Full QWERTY keypads normally come with business phones like BlackBerries, or the virtual touchscreens on high-end phones like the iPhone. But here it is on a budget PAYG phone - it's what keen texters have been waiting for! The KS360 has plenty of features tailored to texting in fact. The threaded SMS feature is a neat way of having text conversations. There's also a full range of emoticons to liven up your texts. As well as texting, the QWERTY keypad makes this a good platform for mobile email. Although the LG mail tool lacks the power and flexibility of a BlackBerry, it's easy to set up and use for personal email.

Like most LG phones, the KS360 has a touchscreen user interface, so you can dial directly from the touchscreen without needing to open up the slide. In fact the slide is really only used when texting or sending emails, so most of the time you can use it with the slide closed, just like a normal phone. In addition to the touchscreen, there's a full range of "normal" buttons for navigation, calling, ending calls, etc, so if you don't get on with touchscreens there's no need to worry.

In fact, this is such a great phone for texting and calling, and so cheap, we weren't expecting it to have any other features. But it does. It has a digital camera with video recording capabilities. The camera's about average for this price range, although it lacks a flash, so can only be used in good lighting conditions. The large 2.4 inch screen has one of the highest resolutions available, and is excellent. The phone has a built-in music player that supports MP3 and AAC formats. And an FM radio too. The built-in memory is not overly generous at 15 Mbytes, but you can add a microSD memory card up to 4 GB. This is enough to store around 1,000 MP3 tracks.

Connectivity appears to be via Bluetooth only, but the battery life is very good. The phone doesn't support 3G, but it does have triband GSM coverage.

To be honest, we're quite blown away by this little baby. We were expecting it to be a bit tacky, but it's really impressed us. The keypad is a big bonus for anyone who sends a lot of texts, and LG have been generous with the amount of stuff that's included in the phone. At this price, we think you'll be impressed too. And it's available in Blue or Pink, depending on which gender stereotyping appeals to you :) Some of our users have reported software glitches with this phone, but most seem happy and for the money it offers outstanding performance.

The new LG GW520 has a similar design with upgraded features.

Well I got this phone a long time ago and since got a Galaxy Ace. However about a month ago I lost my new phone and after years of not being used I decided to re-use my LG KS360. It was very used, had a crack on the screen, slid the other way it was supposed to, all the buttons were worn away. However it was a trouper and served me well. I even managed to get facebook and it ran faster than my Samsung! now I have found my Galaxy Ace. Just wanted to say good job baby! I love you. R.I.P My LG KS360. <3

I have this phone for a years now. Yes it does switch himself off sometimes but solution for that is to put memory card in it and try to save everything there, also keyboard is awesome, treat text view is an excellent idea. Internet settings are dead easy to set (call your provided in case of any issues) and it is easy to use. I am using it everytime when I am waiting for new handset to comeout and I am impressed so far.

I have had this phone for about three years now, I bought it, forgot about it and rediscovered it. It is a basic phone, but it is great for texters. Don't buy this phone expecting a huge number of apps, you'll be disapointed. When you get right down to it, think cheap blackberry minus BBM.

This phone is so frustrating! It's way too small, & shuts down when you are texting. You constantly have to clear your inbox because the memory can't hold it & it has a short battery life. I would not suggest this phone to you.

The KS3360 is an 'okay' phone but it didnt fullfill all of my phone needs.Without a memory card the memory has very little space and is quite slow at times (e.g. if your messages inbox is building up).Like some,im also clumsy and have dropped my phone a number of times, but unexpectedly,the phone's screen hast cracked.This is due to the fact that that the KS360 is quite solid and compact.Overall the LG KS360 is an okay buy.

At first it seemed like the perfect phone, but then problems started arising like it turning itself on and off by its self, slowing down really badly, and goes onto the internet a lot by itself and wastes my credit. Althought i am quite clumsy and have dropped in on any possible surface and the screan has never cracked, and this could have also contributed to my problems

I've had this mobile for almost 2 years, it's a pretty good phone - for it's price anyway - obviously it has it's negatives and positives:
* Switches off A LOT! My friend has this phone too, and the same thing happened to hers.
* Battery life is v. bad! Especially if I you like listening to music and using the mobile internet.
* Camera is v. basic, but if you don't mind having a simple camera this phones for you!
* But the phone is stylish, and great for texting.

Overall it's an okay phone, but it is quite cheap...obviously LG products aren't v. good in the first place...I'm planning on buying the Samsung Galaxy Fit :)

I've had this phone for 2 yeard now. It's great for texting and that, but I can't even setup the email or internet on it! It sometimes restarts when I send texts, and watch my own recorded videos. I would recommend this phone to everyone, but after it gets to about 2, it starts to let you down.

All in all, it's a great phone!

Do not get this phone. It might look nice at first and really cool but you'll get bored of it very quickly. To get anything out of this phone you will need a memory card as you can only take 10 pictures with the normal memory. I would recommend a blackberry as the are getting cheaper and are 1000000 x better than this phone.

Reviewed by Carly from England on 15th Jan 2012
I chose this phone for my 17th Birthday, and at first it was great. Took a while to get used to the keyboard but it was so much easier to text than phones without the qwerty keyboard. However, after a while it started to turn off randomly, and it started to lag when i turned the screen for the keyboard, sometimes it didn't turn at all and I would be looking at it the wrong way round. The final straw was when people called me and it began to ring but not show the screen so I did not know who it was, or people would ring and it would shut off. I treat my phones well but use them a lot. The battery life is not that great either so it isn't for someone who uses it a lot. Saying that, the text messaging was really great in layout, allowing you to see the full conversation on one page like an iphone. I will give a 3 star because it was great at first but not for me! Qwerty keyboard is great for text lovers, but the phone quality goes downhill very fast. I know others that have had the same problems with it turning off on its own randomly.

this is a cute wee phone, with a decent sized keyboard that slides out BUT I have had no end of trouble with mine, switching itself off halfway through writing text messages or when trying to call, and when making phonecalls not connecting right away so you're going "Hello! Hello???" and they can hear you but you can't hear them, then it eventiually connects = bloody useless as a phone then!!! Maybe it was just my handset that was faulty, but that was a replacement one, so get at your owen risk!!! No free games, have to pay for them all too. Very little memory for photos, only had about 15 and memory full! ..and unable to email or download onto computer (unless I'm just technically inept, lol). Good for texting, when it worked. After 2 years of frustratiion have traded it in for a budget android at same price with much more for your money ..LG ...binned, kersplat!

Excellent phone, lasted me almost two years before I decided it was about time to get a new one! Well worth the price, bought this when it was on sale for £50, and definately don't regret it. Was outstanding for the first couple of months, but slowly started to deteriorate after a while. Would freeze and turn off when two texts came through at the same time, and also turned off at other random times. Camera's good in daylight, but quality isnt so good in dim lighting - not bad for a 2 megapixel camera! Internet proved to be quite slow, but again, what can you expect for the price. Also, after a while the battery went from average to worse, leaving me charging it every night when I went to bed (however I am constantly texting throughout the day so not at all surprising!) would reccomend this phone, looks good and definately worth the money.

My review has to be a good one. I had this phone as a present last year and it has been really good. It's very loud and can store music on a memory card. I had trouble getting music from my computer to the phone but when I Bluetoothed a song it worked. When you have a lot of text's the phone takes a long time to load but it does come! The corners chip easily and you can't really see the screen when you are outside. I set an alarm bit it didn't go of at the time I told it to but at a different time. The camera is quite good it does take pictures and they do turn out well but the phone can't take a lot of pictures so you have to have a memory card. All in all i would say that there are better phones than this one but for what it is i would say it is good!

I supposed the phone is alright when it comes to texts but the mp3 systems songs are very expensive and usually take a very long time which is annoying because it never works downloading things the first time so you have to do it twice. Another thing which seriously bugs me is how if you have to about 15 texts it will slow your system down! The camera is really annoying because I'm only allowed 10 odd photo's I have to even delete my playlist to even get another 10.

This phone is a good idea but not really value for money. I hadn't realised that you can only use the touch screen for dialing numbers and thats it. I would hev like to use the touch screen for more than just that. Also the keypad isn't the easiest thing to use as the buttons are rather hard to press if you are writing a text in a hurry and most of the time you end up with letters missing or extra letters. Overall, not a great phone and not the best value for money.

avoid! i did absalutly love this phone when i first got it and i was constantly playing on it. i absalutly LOVED it! but then it began going really dodgy. withing days if i got two texts at the same time, or if i got a text whilst deleting messages, it would completly freeze and be useless for the next 30 mins. so i had it swapped on carphone warehouse's 28 day policy. On this phone i had the same problem, and then if i made or recieved a call the first 30 seconds at least i heard nothing, whereas the caller could hear me, and it took my money for this! the memory was pathetically tiny, meaning inbox had to be deleted ever 3 days. not a problem if it didnt take 20 mins to get through 30%! unreal. i ended up having three swaps untill i had to start sending it away for repairs. got to the 2/3 before being given a new one and was told it was totally dead and there was nothing i could do. great. the text would lag and also annoyingly swap letters around if you typed to fast. not a texting phone!!!! such a shame! i think the best and only good feature is the chat stream allowing you to see all the messages to and from each person. but the picture allocation did not work either. i wasted 60 on this phone and it lasted 5 months. and that was with replacements and fixing. being completly honest and knowing the value of money, dont buy it, for the love of god dont. you will regret it and carphone warehouse dont do money back garuntee, unfortunatly. please please please dont get it! i recomend for the same price, or lower the lg cookie. may not be a looker but its lasted my sister 4 years, yes 4 without breaking or needing repair, and now i have it and have come quite attached if im honest. its lovely. get that instead.

This is a very good phone. It is my 3rd/4th phone as I lost my first KS360 and was so pleased with it that I bought a second. Only two things I am not so pleased about which are ; When they say touch screen it isn't really and can only be used for dailing, and so to me it seems like it is there for the sake of it. he other thing is somtimes the background randomly changes to a live square. But a very good phone that I hope to use for a long time.

i think this phone is good mainly when it comes down to texting, however the video recording is poor and whilst recording the phone has to be held still or else alot of blur will ensure. the expandable memory of up to 4GB is really good for music lovers as well as the built in mp3-player. video playback is generally good, and so is the sound quality of the video. however when it comes down to downloading videos the fact that it dosnt support anyhting like Xvid is a let down, only being able to play MP4 or 3GPP format also means watching films on the KS360 is not the best. the battery life though (especially when listening to music) is great, i did a test continually playing a song and the battery lasted for 11hours!> it has some let downs but for the price it really offers alot more than most phones in the same price range.

I have owned this phone for over a year, as has my boss, and both our phones have developed a malfunction whereby the keyboard seems to get keys confused, and when you call somebody the speaker refuses to work.

rubbish phone. dont recommend it at all :( keeps switching itself off whenever texting :/ dont consider it because its clearly the phones fault.... 90% of the phones users find something wrong with it eventually (usually switiching off thing) yeah at first its great, looks great but wait a couple of months, even weeks and you will be disappointed.

I have had this phone for nearly two years and it has hardly given me any bother. It has froze a couple of times but only if you click to too many things and not giving it time to load. It is handy and is easy for quick texting. You have many choices of fonts, colours, design and layout. It is a perfect size for your pocket and is easy to use. It also included a touch pad which is usual when searching for a contact to ring.

I got this phone last year and it worked fine, up until a few months ago, when it started to turn itself off automatically at the most irrelevant time possible. I thought at first that it was due to the fact that I dropped it a lot, but I was told that there was a fault in the phone. I found that the phone tends to need a full battery to stop it turning off. This tends to be quite hard as the phone loses charge very quickly.

when I first got this phone, It was Amazing, then after a while, it started to work really slowly... If it ran out of battery and then I got it charged, it would take AGES to start working again! then sometimes I'm typing a really long text message, and then all the bars would go down to nothing! I would have to switch it off and then back on again and then I would have to wait for it to start to work properly AGAIN! though I like the key pad it is a good phone apart from the problems above...it doesn't last long thats all I'm saying

dont buy this phone...it switches itself off for no apparent reason, and there are issues with memory. We are now on the 3rd replacement and it is doing the same thing so clearly a production fault....finally going to get rid of it.

this phone is rubbish! it may seem good for the first few months but I had mine for the maximum of 4 months and it started randomly turning off! I decided to ignore this matter because I quite liked the phone ninth longer I left it the worse it became, by now whenever I went to text or do anything on this phone it turnt off! the battery use is not even worth talking about, the camara is ok but I never really used it for taking photos, the mp3 player is good, the phone scratches really easily and after a while of sliding the keypad up it starts to slide the other way sometimes. out of 5 I would give this phone a 2 because of all the things I listed above! if you are thinking of buying this phone, personaly I wouldn't waste my money on something that is only going to last 3 months!
