LG Secret KF750 Review
In a nutshell: The LG Secret is a stunningly beautiful superslim
phone, with carbon fibre and tempered glass giving it an aura of quality,
and the touchscreen controls and "Neon Touch" visuals making
it cool to use. It's a top-end phone with a 5 megapixel camera, video
camera with slow motion effects, 3G video calling, a music player plus
an FM radio, Bluetooth 2.0 and support for memory cards up to 4 GB.
The only negatives are below average battery life and the fact that
some users are reporting poor reception. It also lacks features like
GPS, making it appear rather dated now.
Review: June 2008. Updated June 2009.
The LG Secret KF750 is the third in LG's Black Label series - the first
two being the Chocolate and the
Shine. Like its predecessors, the Secret
is a visually stunning phone. The Secret is touchscreen controlled,
and uses "Neon Touch". Neon Touch provides a visual response
to touch, so you know when you've activated a button. Watch blue lights
flicker as you touch the screen - it's great fun for at least the first
week of ownership! Not everyone will take to the touchscreen controls,
but these kinds of phones have been around for long enough now that
many people will have some previous experience of touchscreens.
It's a slide phone, and its claim to fame is that it's the slimmest
5 megapixel camera phone available. In fact at just 11.8mm, it's one
of the slimmest slide phones around. Slim phones sometimes have a tendency
towards screen damage, but the Secret is constructed from carbon fibre
and tempered glass, so ought to be strong enough to survive reasonable
amounts of abuse. Despite its slimness, its quite heavy, at 116g, but
this helps to give a quality feel.
The camera is excellent, with a specification very similar to that
of the excellent Viewty. It uses a
5 megapixel sensor with autofocus, and a macro mode is available for
close-ups. One cool feature is "morphing", which lets you
edit faces - this is similar to Sony Ericsson's very popular face warp
feature. The video camera is good too, recording in Divx format at up
to VGA resolution. Like the video camera in the Viewty,
you can record at up to 120 frames per second, then play back at a slower
rate, for a slow motion effect. The camera also supports video calls,
as the Secret is a 3G phone. Another feature worth mentioning out is
that the video is Divx compatible, making it easy to download movies
and watch them on the phone - and with a good-sized 2.4 inch screen,
this isn't as silly as it might sound.
The Secret is well equipped for music, with a music player that supports
most popular file formats, as well as an FM radio. With 100 Mbytes of
internal memory, you can store up to around 25 songs, but this capacity
can easily be expanded by adding a microSD memory card, up to 4 Gbytes
(1,000 songs.) Audio quality is high, and the phone can also play MIDI
tracks with up to 72 channels.
We've noted that the phone is 3G enabled. It's actually HSDPA-enabled,
with download speeds of up to 3.6 Mbps available. In addition to 3G
support, it's a quadband phone, supporting GSM 900/1800/1900/2100. The
phone comes with a Google package too, making it a reasonably good platform
for the mobile internet.
So far so good, but there are a couple of issues that take the edge
off this beauty. The first is battery life. Surprise, surprise ... it's
a superslim phone and battery life is below average ... have we said
this kind of thing before? It's always a trade-off: if you're a heavy
user, you'd be better off avoiding superslim phones generally. The other
thing is that quite a lot of our users are reporting problems with signal
strength. Other minor issues are that the screen is quite hard to read
outdoors, and that ringtones can be a little quite. Apart from these
issues, the Secret is a lovely phone, and packs in plenty of features
too, although it can't compete with the latest phones in this top-end
Features of the LG Secret KF750 include:
- 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, macro, 16x digital zoom and flash
- Video camera with 120 fps video recording for slow motion playback
- 3G video calling
- Display: TFT, 262,000 colours, 240 x 320 pixels (2.4 inches)
- Music player (supports MP3, AAC, AAC+, AAC++ and WMA file formats)
- FM radio
- MP3 ringtones (72 voice polyphonic)
- Messaging: SMS, EMS, MMS, Email
- Document viewer
- Voice recording
- Java games
- Memory: 100 Mbytes plus microSD memory card (up to 4 GB)
- Connectivity: Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0
- Internet: WAP 2.0, EDGE, HSDPA (3.6 Mbps), Google package
- Size: 102.8 x 50.8 x 11.8 mm
- Weight: 116g
- Battery standby: 260 hours
- Talktime: 230 minutes

Loved the phone for many of the above qualities. However, found without

touch too sensitive when trying to click onto eg. bbc sport football
latest scores..forever sliding up and down and thus can be frustratingly

Michelle + all with same trouble, here is a guide to turn off keypad
tone (inclusive of small touch screen, and numeric keys so texting is
quiet), whilst not having to mute the phone itself. Go to Menu - settings
-profiles, at this point hover over the profile u use (in my case normal)
and press the option button - select edit. Scroll down to key tone,
change to no sound, scroll further to confirmation tone and turn off
if needed (this tone is the one that keeps playing a tune when u save
settings etc).... Hope this helps peeps, it is sooooo nice not to have
the phone beeping at me every time i press something!

Well, where do I start?! I am on my THIRD replacement phone from Orange.
I am having major problems with the MP3 player and Internet - it basically
shuts the phone down when I am surfing the internet or listening to
my music!!! I find the internet very slow... and the screen is just
too small to view the pages properly. Reception is really bad on this
phone, although it's not Orange's fault as they are fine on my old Nokia
7373! It's the LG Secret... just not very good with reception. It is
a beautiful-looking phone, it's just a shame the features are not so
good; - cannot make it ring for more than 12 seconds, by which time
the person has hung up... - internet switches the phone off! - has a
life of it's own with the touchkeys when you are talking and your cheek
touches them... they put the person on hold and you end up talking to
yourself until you realise it's on hold!!! - camera is slow to take
pics - hard to transfer pics from phone memory to external mini SD card
if you have already stored them on internal memory. - ring and vibe
could be louder/stronger, as I never seem to hear it in my bag while
out and about - never had this prob with other phones. - battery life
is really not good. It's not a bad phone in general... it just needs

The phone is amazing. I dont know where all these comments about bad
signal and bad battery are coming from? The signal on my phone is a
lot stronger than everyone else in my house (3 other people) and a lot
better than my old phone. I read through all of these reviews before
i upgraded to this phone, i was worrying a bit about it, but now that
ive got it im so glad that i didnt chicken out. It's really great. I'm
enjoying all the features on it a lot. Takes great pictures and im still
discovering new things you can do on the phone. you should definitely
buy this phone! look on youtube videos if you are unsure about it, it
explains all the features and things really well. also im not quite
sure why some people are complaining about not being able to turn the
kypad tones off? just go into profiles and edit... simple!

This is the worst phone Ive ever had in terms of usability and bugs.
1. Camera seems very poor at adapting to lighting settings or movement.
Ive been to 2 weddings recently, and most of my pictures are useless
due to the camera applying either too much or too little brightness
to the picture. I tried taking with different light sources and moving
the central point, but it seemed to go from one extreme to the other.
2. Text messaging seems to get stuck on 'messaging initializing' when
attempting to write a new message. I can leave the phone for days on
that screen and nothing initializes. Only thing that seems to work is
turning it off and on, then waiting 5 minutes. 3. Connectivity to PC
worked initially, now it says it's connected but none of the functions
work. It 'times out' after a few minutes saying the phone isn't connected,
then takes you to the menu which says the phone is connected fine. I'm
using Windows Vista 64bit Ultimate edition on an Intel Dual core. Maybe
it doesn't like the OS, but it's not exactly an uncommon configuration.
4. Menu system does not respond in a timely manner. Leaves you wondering
whether anything has actually happened or you should press the button
again. Infuriating when you've just been disconnected due to poor signal
strength. 5. Signal strength is not good. Had a Sony Ericsson W850i
before (which performed worse than many colleagues phones in terms of
signal strength) and it's much worse than that. 6. Keypad is difficult
to use if you have reasonable sized hands. I keep brushing the 'touch
keys' by accident (the touch screen buttons around the main normal button).
Pretty irritating. 7. Battery life is poor. Yeah it's a slimline, but
that's no excuse for it going from 3 bars to 0 in a matter of a few
minutes. I've had from 60 to 6 hours use out of a charge depending on
number of calls made. Utterly unpredictable and totally inconvenient
if you're traveling for a few days. 8. Interface is not intuitive. This
is probably a subjective issue depending on your previous phones. It
seems to work in a different way to other manufacturers, and after 6
weeks of having the phone, I still don't like it. Overall it's a shiny
toy. Feature set is lovely, but the reality is that it is not reliable
or predictable, and doesn't do all the things you expect it to.

I agree with most that the phone looks cool, has a solid feel to it
and has lots of features but am seriously struggling with reliability
and battery. I don't mind if it needs charging regularly but it to goes
from being fully charged to low battery when you've hardly even used
it and with no warning in between. I've had it two months and am not
that impressed. I wish I had stayed with my Motorola KRZR. I am hoping
I can send it back for a different handset as it's so unreliable.

I would say the phone is pretty cool! Havent had big problems with connection..
although does lose it in the house even next to window.. but if u stick
it right next to the window (say behind the desk closer to the glasses,
it quickly finds all the bars. Battery aint great as people said but
does last around 2 days give or take few hours depending on use.. yet
to see if its gonna survive whole day of phoning mates when i go back
to uni in october. Now problems i got, internet (vodafone live) aint
working but google (which uses internet) does.. and so does ebay...
weird. And those 3 buttons under the touch buttons (eg answer call button,
hang up button and C button.. dont have the blue light it or any light
at all.. SO THE QUESTION IS: does it ment to have light in those buttons????
can someone answer that as i wanna visit the shop and ask em, (gotta
sort out internet anyway) dont wanna look like an idiot and find out
buttons only were lighten up in advertising future for selling purposes...
apart from that i think phone is amazing!! and perhaps aint the smart
phone, and feels incomplete.. like small touch feature and just couple
of wii mini like games (although it aint ment to be wii.. neither its
a full touch phone). But looks just make up for it... one of the best
looking phones i ever seen... and i am a 20yr old so i seen and been
through alot :) p.s: watch out for the carbon fibre at thee back being
easily scratched.. if u wanna preserve the phone from scratches and
overall dirt suggest keep in some sort of holder.. i just use lil black
bag i got from my sunglasses... although i wanna buy that soft "skin"folder
that armani touch phone has.. The phone aint as durable as they want
u to believe!! Would hate to drop it.. especially as its not that light..
but again looks are amazing! One more thing.. read what Gazmo said about
poor reception and bit of paper below.. weirdly it works.. stuck little
bit of paper on top of the pin and closed so it didnt move.. and now
at least i got 1-2 bars in places where it used to search for signal...
sometimes even jumps to full strength??

I think the phone is a very solid and well made phone. It feels quite
heavy and solid which is good. However I personally am finding battery
life very poor indeed. Maximum 2 days and that is not with heavy use
at all. When the battery does run out, it gives vey little warning dropping
from 3 bars to zero in a matter of hours so based on this I can only
recommend 3 stars. Am seriously thinking of sending mine back solely
due to battery life.

Received Phone some 2 wks ago, so had plenty of time to test. Here are
my thoughts. This is my second Phone as the 1st let me down with only
1 part of its applications. That was trying to asign a photo to a contact
detail, it kept on turning itself off. Now to the Good bits:- 1. Battery
Life is one of the best i have had. 1 charge with normal use has lasted
my 4 days. dont know where the other comments stem from. 2. Video one
of the best out there. Had W900i last time so wanted something along
the quality of that. This superseeds even that. 3. Camera - Too much
Lag of shutter on moving items. So not good. On still items a good photo
from the 5mp is taken. Loads of options too. 4. Ringtones - Normal MP3
quality, could do with being slightly louder, as in above normal noise
areas i have had a couple of missed calls. 5. Touch Screen is the bees
knees, especially the pre-loaded WII like games. A real difference.
6. Looks & Feel - Top Notch. Tuff,Durable & Def one of the best looking
phones i have ever had, will not date for yrs yet. Carbon Fibre rear
case, tempered Glass to minimise scratches. 7. Software for PC - The
easiest yet when it comes to Transfer of material etc etc. 8. Signal
- No Problems to date. EVen better than my w900i. 9. Applications -
Already Touched on the games, the rest are pretty standard these days
across the boards of handsets. The I Touch Pad functions are cool and
with either Photos or music. Would def Rec. this phone regardless of
some comments. From my experience none are justified apart from those

touching the wrong part and getting charged etc. too. The functions

I have handled this phone but not used it so i will not attempt to comment

Design Engineer with many years experience this phone in my opinion
will not survive the physical abuse that many peoples phones get. Why?
Carbon fibre is a strong and flexible material great if the Secret was
a fishing rod but the case has a job to do not just look pretty that
of protecting the components within. The case flexes far too easily
putting all the stress on the display and the PCBs. If you treat your
phone with kid gloves then there probably will not be an issue, knock
it around intentionally or not and i cannot see it lasting very long.

in all this phone is sturdy and well designed and generally a good handset,
had no issues with the battery life. The camera, although 5 megapixel,
is generally ok as the photos often come out slightly blurred due to
a time delay. When taking a pictue you will press the shutter button
and the photo will be taken a second or two later- this often means
you have moved the device ever so silghtly and this causes blurring
- so keep your hands as still as you can!! Video function works fine
and has some good options. I have had no problems with reception apart
from when you are in a low signal area. For example if other phones
are picking up minor signal - like 1 bar- the Secret will struggle to
find reception. I have found turning the phone on and off in this situation
seems to work. I have had issues with the phone - the main being when
attaching it to my PC. The requirements are Windows service pack 2 and
Media player 11 - i have both of these and still i cannot manage to
access my phone book / video files using the LG software, and it clearly
states that you should be able to do this. Synchronizing my music files
works fine and down loading photos onto my pc also works fine. I have
found storing all my files onto an SD card makes accessing all my phones
files far easier - i would definitely suggest doing this if you are
having the same problems as me - as you can use 'My Computer' on your
PC to look at the files instead of the LG software package. The final
problem i have had is downloading games from Vodafone and then getting
charged for them when it hasn't worked (meaning numerous calls back
and forwards!). I think this is more a case of mobile companies not
being fully aware of the new phones' they are selling and their associated
technology / software. Just want to know if anyone else is having problems
downloading games on the vodafone network (or any other network). I
try to download a game and it says "initiating" then fails to do anything
else...? Just want to know to see if it is a specific phone fault or
a software problem. Mobile internet browsing is generally good with
many options to change the way the browser works (which i would suggest
doing). Phone is fairly quiet, but sound is crystal clear and i can't
stand loud phones blaring out their ringtones when it is totally un
called for (like on a train or in a lift for example!). All in all this
is a stylish phone that has a few bugs with the software, but no more
than any other brand new hand sets on the market.

I really like this phone as it's quite different from anything that's
out at the moment, especially the "wii" style games and smart tilt detection
so it automatically puts pictures in landscape etc. Everyone is always
impressed with that! I do have to say I am pretty disappointed with
the battery life, like others here. At the moment it has a fault where
I try and charge it but the red-eye light comes on! Very odd. I have
to take the battery off and on again to charge. Plus the ridiculous
grammer - I mean, what are they paying these people for!! Like when
you get a delivery report and it says "Report has been arrived" what?!
Anyway. Also I have problems with the PC software, gave up in the end
and got a bluetooth dongle for my pc. I should just say it DOES have
a loudspeaker, when you're on a call just press the main button (ok)
then again to turn it on. A lot of the problems people have put on this
page are not actually issues e.g. loudspeaker, shortcuts, menu access,
key unlocking, games (I have bejewled on it) etc they are all fine.
To sum up, a great phone which looks and feels lovely with an amazing
camera. I can put up with the battery life :o)

Having had this phone a few weeks now, I've discovered all the major
strengths and weaknesses. The main strength is the look and feel of
the phone. It is true to say theres no other like it on the market.
It looks very sleek and professional, while at the same time is easy
to use. The touch screen buttons do take a little while to get used
to, but make life so much easier once you get the hang of it. I will
say that occasionally the sensitivity of the buttons goes a bit haywire,
but does nothing that cant be easily rectified in a few seconds. The
camera is 5 megapixels which is great, however, having had a sony ericsson
k800i 3.2mp previously I have to say the quality is not always as good.
Especially for scenes which are not perfectly still. The flash leaves
a lot to be desired. I have also found the signal strength to be quite
poor, where Ive never had problems with other phones, the LG Secret
tends to search more often, causing me to miss phone calls. However,
although this is a common problem with the phone, having replaced the
handset this new one seems to work much better. The battery life is
not fantastic, requiring a charge at least every two days, but this
is quite common with the latest phones. On a better note, the handset
is very easy to use. There are a few shortcut buttons on the side for
camera, menu and home page which make using the phone on the go easier
than many others. The materials used in this phone are a great selling
point, especially if you have a long contract for the phone, as scratches
and dents are almost impossible to make. If you want a phone that makes
toast and brews tea, this probably isnt for you, however, if you want
a simple phone with some of the latest features, and most importantly
with the best style then you should get this phone.

I got this phone a week ago today and it’s going back tomorrow.
It’s a great looking phone and I really wanted to like it, but
I found it frustrating to use. The biggest problem I had with this phone
is the signalreception; I would sometimes retrieve it from my pocket
only for it to say ‘emergency calls only’, then a few seconds
later the signal would come back. So if anyone was to try and contact
me whilst the phone was in my pocket I would not get the call. Also
my wife is on same network as me and I had to use her phone on a couple
of occasions as I could not get a signal at all. The battery life is
poor, but apparently slimmer phones don't have very good battery life
due to the size, but I am not a heavy user and I got just under 2 days
use out of it before recharging the phone again. At first the games
seem fun and clever, but then the novelty wears off, and the maze game
after 2 mins seemed pretty pointless as it was dead simple and easy
to play. Having said all this, I found the camera and video very good,
and I liked the idea of toughened glass and the carbon fibre backing
as I broke my Samsung d900 in my pocket. The touch sensitive buttons
are ok, I couldn’t quite get used to them, and I have large fingers
so I would sometimes accidentally hit another button. As I said I really
did want to like this phone, but it had a fundamental flaw and that
was the signal, maybe it was just this particular phone and not all
LG Secrets have this problem!?!? Anyway I get my Sony Ericsson C902
tomorrow as replacement, so I hope this will be a better phone!

I was amused to find that there are games pre-installed on the phone
that use the "tilt" sensors. there are 6 games pre-installed on my phone
that all work simply by moving the phone around (very wii) There are
various methods of getting to your music ... some better than others,
but once you get to the main interface you can sort your music in just
about any way you want. Its got some quirks that take a bit of getting
used to and its often easy to press an arrow key while your trying to
press the centre button. when you initialy start using the phone it
is easy to think that the only part of the phone that is touch screen
is the lower section. there is however a button on the right hand side
that allows you to turn on the touchscreen. this has limited applications
but all seem to work quite well. The bad bit is that i am having very
little luck in getting the lg software to work. So far Vista and XP
have let me down meaning i still dont have a contacts list and to add
music/movies to the phone i need to remove the card and add the file
manualy. if you try to use the phone without sliding down the keyboard
you will also find that the phone goes into locked mode very quickly
and if you try to use the touchscreen music player the phone take quite
a while to lock and changes track if you put it in your pocket.

simply cant hold a signal, even in areas of fairly good reception. This
has meant ALOT of dropped calls, and as a result I've had to grudgingly
return the phone as its rendered it next to useless. I think its a shame
as this could have been a real winner for LG. Why o why do phone cos
