LG Prada review

 Review: April 2007  

Last updated July 2009

Rating: 3 stars

In a nutshell: A stunning Prada-branded phone with a touchscreen display.

Best buy: LG P940 Prada from Amazon Marketplace UK (£204.94)


Well, LG have been pushing fashion phones in a big way in recent years but now by teaming up with Prada, they have produced their most stylish phone yet. Wait, it's possibly the most stylish phone yet. It's so cool it's not even allowed to have the LG logo on it, but is Prada-branded. Yes, it's the LG Prada, or to give it its proper title, the PRADA phone by LG. The Prada phone is the embodiment of minimalist chic, with its gloss-black finish, slender size and um, hang on, no keypad! Yes, this is a touchscreen phone, with buttons displayed on the screen. These are not like the touch-sensitive buttons used in the LG Chocolate, but actually appear on the LCD screen and change according to the current menu function (see picture on right). There are two real buttons just below the screen for send and return, so you can at least switch the phone on and off without any trouble! There are also side buttons for controlling volume, the camera and music player. There's a choice of themes, but the default is black and white, which suits the look of the phone very well. When not in use, the screen virtually disappears from view, just like the Chocolate. The Prada has some specially designed ringtones too, which frankly we found irritating, especially the ones called "Noise" and "Man".

Now, let's talk about this touchscreen thing. In theory touchscreens are a great feature because 1) they're really cool, and 2) they eliminate the space taken up by a keypad so you can make a compact phone with a large screen. But in reality they suffer from certain disadvantages - mainly the fact that they can be difficult to use and can drive you nuts. The buttons are quite small, so you'll find it easier to use if you have small fingers. So, this phone may be better suited to ladies. However, if you have very long nails you may have some trouble. The menu system is actually very intuitive, and once you've got used to pressing the screen, you'll find it responsive and easy to use. Texting is done via the virtual numeric keypad, which supports T9 predictive text. This is probably the hardest thing to get used to. If you send a lot of texts, you should think really hard before choosing the Prada. On balance, the touchscreen interface is OK. Some may find it annoying; others not. In any case, sometimes you've got to suffer a little to look good! One other thing to point out is that the screen and black casing will get covered in fingerprints very quickly (unless you wear Prada gloves when handling the phone.) Prada have thoughtfully provided a branded LCD cleaner, so you can look elegant even whilst cleaning your phone. There's also an exclusive leather case, but why hide away something this pretty?

Normally when a phone looks this good, the other functions tend to let it down. But with the Prada, it doesn't just look nice, it does all the tech stuff too. We're going to rush this bit, because the tech stuff is probably not what most Prada users need to know. Here goes: 2 megapixel camera with flash - not the best ever, but good enough for snapping friends in restaurants (or wherever owners of Prada phones hang out); music player; FM radio; email with support for MS Office attachments; microSD memory card (expandable to 1 Gybte); Bluetooth & USB connectivity; EDGE data transfer. Nothing significant missing. Battery life is slightly less than average (probably due to powering the huge screen!)

In conclusion, the LG Prada fulfils its role as a high-fashion accessory for those with enough disposable income to distance themselves from the Chav crowd. It does everything you'd want (and more too), it is very gadgety but without being nerdy, and it probably won't annoy you too much with its touchscreen unless you're very impatient. In which case, you probably didn't read to the end of this review anyway. The new LG Viewty isn't Prada branded, but incorporates a 5 megapixel camera and other improvements. The LG Prada 2 launches in December 2008 and features a slideout QWERTY keyboard.

I've had the Prada for almost 3 years now and all of it's functions seem to still be working as they did when I first got it. The only slight problem I've encountered is that once I have written a text, on occassions, when the send button is pressed the phone goes off. I then turn it back on and try sending the same text again (which is now saved in drafts) and this time it works for some reason :S Overall it is a pretty good phone :D

Ive had this phone for over 2 years now and it has been fab! I work on a stud yard which means im around horses. My phone is all battered but i dont want to get rid of it because of the mega responsive touch screen! Ive had a go on the samsung tocco and really dont find it as responsive all. Yes it has its downsides, like a 2 song memory and a short battery life but you can charge the phone up over night and get a seperate memory card for a tenner. When i have bveen cleaning the stables out at work and filling up water buckets i have dropped my lg prada in puddles and big buckets of water and its survived! Oh and SOMETIMES the touchscreen freezes up after you have been on the phone but its sorted by taking out the battery and putting it straight back in and then it works super! HOPE THIS HAS HELPED ANYONE! :)

I used to have a LG cookie that was brilliant but on one of the reviews for the LG cookie it said the LG prada was a load better, but after using the phone for a week I am past despair with the phone. I think it is too heavy and large. It is not at all a reliable phone as mine turned off every 10 minutes for no apparent reason.My screen broke today after just 7 days. IF I WAS YOU I'D BUY THE LG COOKIE HAS SAME THINGS JUST A BIT WORSE CAMERA AND IS A LOAD CHEAPER!!!

Ive had my phone for coming up 2 years and Im ready for a change back to a button phone-the prada has at best driven me quietly up the wall- its lovely to put on a table in public-nothing to be ashamed of there! but its a real annoying thing to rely on if your in a hurry or having a crisis and actually have to search a number and phone someone-its not that easy to text in a hurry either as the thing keeps freezing/ or repeats the last digit again and again after a cap letter or explanation mark. Nice fashion piece but not practical.

Reviewed by Kazza from UK on 17th Jun 2009
I love the look of this phone but have found it quite annoying for several reasons. Firstly you can't see the screen when you're out in daylight. Secondly I've not been able to find a way of re-accessing the number pad once on a call i.e. when you need to press another number to take you through a recorded switchboard (i.e. "if you want to book an appointment - press 1"). I've had the phone for about 6 months now and the touchscreen navigation buttons have started to really slow down - it can sometimes take about 20 seconds or more to open up an option including the number pad or text message option. Which bring me to my last point - you can't directly reply to a text message - you have to go a really long way round to do so - and you can't forward on a text message either. Needless to say - I've been quite disappointed with the phone and will be going back to a Nokia as soon as my contract is up!

I'm not sure if this is a bug just on my phone or if this a universal problem with this version but I've noticed if you reply to a text then save it as a draft to send later the recipient will change to the next text message down on the list. this has caused a few embarrassing text messages to my boss that were meant for my wife etc. very annoying problem and something that I have to constantly watch out for. Anyone else had this problem? apart from that I have to say the texting interface is appalling and very slow, especially to type characters/commas etc. definitely don't recommend this.

I have to say upon opening the box of the Prada I was WOWED! I bought this phone for my daughter for her 18th birthday and after seeing and playing with it I wanted one for myself. I found the touch screen very responsive, and I have large fat fingers! The sound quality was very clear and loud and the reception was excellent! Other phones I have had, Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Motorola and Blackberry have all had reception issues at my house and so far this one has been very good. However, I have had some issues that has caused me to return the phone in exchange for another one. 1. I can not use video mode at all, every time I try the phone shuts off. 2. Can't play music while doing other things - it will not play in background - just cuts off when I try. 3. Songs will not go into MP3 player, so the player has been useless to me. 4. Every song that does upload on the phone, but not into the MP3 player, uploads twice - one plays and the other says fil e is not supported. 5. Can not move music from memory card to phone. 6. Does not support any documents. 7. Disk image will not eject from computer. Now I know these are a lot of problems, but I am giving LG another chance - I think I just got a lemon and hopefully this second time around I will get a good phone. It is a very beautiful phone, the touch screen is great and very responsive and the call quality and reception quality were both admirable. I found texting to be very easy and my daughter said she texts faster on the Prada than she does on her Nokia or Samsung. As I have not seen comments on all of my problems I am assuming I did get a dud of a phone and my next one hopefully will be great! If it is, I will be getting one for myself, not just my daughter, because it is a very nice phone. We both think it is a 5 star phone, (the parts that work) but because of the problems we are giving it only 4.

Its a great looking handset with average features and a very average camera. I bought this phone on looks alone and I was very dissapointed with the poor build quality, it just doesn't feel like a designer phone! The touch control is poor compared to other mobiles such as the viewty and the Prada Phone scratches VERY easily, even when its in the case. My advice, avoid! I'm very dissapointed with the phone.

some of you are saying that it doesnt respond when you put a number in on an automated answering machine...well it actually does. You need to make sure that you have set the DTMF tones to On in settings. In fact, im prety sure you can do it during a call. At my shop, these phones have been selling not so well, but we have had no complaints. I used to have one and thought it was absolutely fantastic, couldnt fault it at all. I loved texting on it too, the touch screen was very very responsive. The camera also takes great pictures, but in all fairness, taking a picture takes far too long.

dont buy this phone it is a nightmare,when you dial a number and then need to press a number for extensions this is a nightmare to do you end up touching loads of numbers as you try to listen, the phone reception is terrible, and it brakes easly with the power button, the light also on the screen is not good looks nice for a while but is terrible for a phone

Had this phone about year or so. its rubbish...when you press 1 for voicemail, then put it to your ear, be careful your ear can operate touch tone and accidentally press 3 for delete. Scratches easily and prada logo wears off. At first it appears great but in time no good I'm affraid. So much so I looking at N82 or soul Take this advice

I've had the phone for well over 5 months now and I'm trading it in, It took me a while to admit to myself that style isn't everything, after having to turn it off 5 times in one day to restart it. The touchscreen either freezes or doesn't work at all, when using SMS, the sticks on one letter, making you have to go back and delete and start over. After a month or two, the Prada shows its true colours.

it looks great but the price is ridiculous for what you get. the camera is only 2 mega pixels and not that great, and the touch screen makes texting really fiddly! also the battery life isn't that good and you can't store much music on it! i wish i got a cheaper phone with better features, but its too late to do anything about it now. i think its really overrated for what it actually is; people only like it as its 'prada' branded, which is one of the reasons i bought it to be honest!

I havn't had my Prada for very long...this is actually my 3rd handset cause on the previous ones the date kept changing which is very odd!!! but since i've had this one its been great! i love the way it looks, feels and is so good technically! the only downside i can think of is the fact that it can only hold mp3's which if yur a music lover like me can get very annoyin! but i've just had to find mp3's but thats alrite! i would definitely recommend buying one because it's amazing! also the texting is fine, especially predictive!

Ive had 2 of these phones now in 3 weeks. the first one i had to return due to the fact the leather case that comes with the phone scratched both sides of the interface and somehow the screen. due to the fact i have not dropped the phone this is the only logical explanation, and when i take it back the store simply says theres nothing they can do even if they wanted to! so whats the point in giving the leather case as the guy in the store admitted he knew the case had done it? i wont deny the phone is stylish and a gorgeous phone to have, so ive fought it and got myself another one, this time ive bought one of the plastic clear cases, which i find protects the phone much better. i did not want a different phone as i find this one is one ofthe best i have purchased in a while. i just cand understand the case, i dont expect anyone elses has done the same?

Heya i got this phone for my 17th bday. Its fantastic. If ur looking for a touch screen phone then this is the phone for you!! i texts really good u can have it like a keyboard on a computer! how kool! theres also touch pad for dialing. really gud quality camera and video camera! Voice recording is really clear! storage alone just on the 256mb memory card is not gud if ur a music, photo and video fan but ive just purchase an 8gb memory card on the internet for 26! thats sure to keep me going for a lifetime! Games on this phone is really gud too so if ur bored travelling check them out. Gud themes! Really interesting text alerts it sings "Youve got mail" Has also Got mp3 player, FM radio, Alarm CLock (which ive set now twice and hasnt went off so take special care with that) world clock, unit convertor, and also blue tooth. Any more questions please write bk x

its a nice fone but textin is quite the bitch! if you use ur thumb, like i do, u'll develop arthritis in about 10 secs! its a nice looking fone, nice layout and fairly responsive touchscreen but dont expect ipod touch style elegance! overall, an ok fone and dirt cheap considering im paying 80 in total over 12 months for 700 mins and 250 texts ;)

I really hated this phone, it was soo annoying, the texting really got on my nerves i was forever having to correct the mistakes. I had never actually picked up a phone call as you forget about the lock button and you end up missing the call. The camera was good for 2MP. the MP3 player was loud. But not a practial phone having no keypad drove me nuts. I really dont like touch screens anymore.

Have got it on contract for a year, and am not happy at all. I exprerienced problems while texting, as the capital letters do not respond to the touch screen. When the earphone wire is plugged in, the mobile would go off. Eventually, had it changed by carphone. The next Prada does the same- problems typing the text, and moreover, the alarm does not work. Real pain. Can't wait to get rid of it. Looks good though.
