LG U8110 Review
Review: August 2004.
The LG U8110 is a clamshell style 3G phone available on the 3 network.
It supports all of 3's video mobile services including video calling
from its built-in video camera. An integrated speakerphone helps to
make video calling easier. You can also record video clips to send to
another phone, and download video from 3, for example news, music and
The camera is of VGA resolution, which is standard amongst current
camera phones. The high-resolution display is clear and sharp with 65k
colours - ideal for viewing videos and photos.
Functionally, the phone has a very similar spec to the other 3G phones
currently available. This includes features like an MP3 player, voice
recorder, Java applications, e-mail and MMS. The only features missing
are Bluetooth wireless connectivity and the advanced GPS (Global Positioning
System) features available in the NEC e616
for example. It does have both infrared and USB connections though,
which are a welcome addition. The phone's memory is 14 Mbytes, which
is low for a 3G phone, and insufficient to make good use of features
like video recording and the MP3 player.
Physically the phone is compact, very attractive, and is better styled
than most 3G phones. Being 3G it's larger than most clamshells, but
no heavier than other 3G phones. Battery life is good compared with
most other 3G phones, which is a key advantage, although most users
will find that they need to recharge every few days.
In summary, the 8110 is a good all-round performer, but not exceptional
when compared to the other 3G phones on the market. We would recommend
it for those looking for a compact clamshell shape or good battery life,
but it's worth also considering the LG U8120
or NEC e228 as better alternatives.
Features of the LG U8110 include:
- Supports all 3's video mobile services: video calling, video messaging
& downloading video clips
- Internal display: 65,536 colours, 220 x 176 pixels
- Built-in VGA camera (640 x 480 resolution) with 2x digital zoom
- MP3 player
- Voice recorder
- Multimedia messaging
- Java games
- Avatar address book – create cartoons of friends and family that
pop-up on screen every time they call
- Infrared and USB connectivity
- Calendar, To Do List, Memos, Clock, Alarm, Calculator, Currency
- Memory: 14 Mbytes internal memory
- Vibration alert
- Weight: 126g
- Size: 50 x 96 x 23 mm
- Talktime: 2 hours
- Battery standby: 5 days

This was my husband's phone because my LG 8120 broke one month before
the contract finished and I lost all my numbers. It just died. LG 8110
has a decent camera but the video camera only takes about 10 seconds
of footage and the resolution is pretty bad. I find it not very user-friendly
on the texting side. The battery life doesn't last a week and I'm not
a heavy user. 3 customer services are the worst. They don't listen to
you and keep charging you month after month even if you tell them numerous
times you've cancelled the contract. They also pass you from person
to person and some call centres are based in India which is even harder
to get the message across. A lot of the features on the phone I don't
really use - why should I spend money on surfing the web when I have

This is a very good value flip phone, just for all you guys out there
with complaints about reception, three cover almost 98% of the country
go to three's web site and use the coverage checker that is what it
is there for. Three used to own orange and then sold orange to become
one of the largest network providers in the uk. They are streets ahead
of vodaphone who are text and video 3g and orange, t-mobile have only
just started 3g service. To have a decent flip phone with video, camera
and decent display, plus the use of threes service for under £50 is
very good value for money, oh and the 30day validity period does not
count anymore on the £15 voucher, this is a good handset and in most
case's the software has been updated, and for all you guys that complain
about three answer this why are the Which mobile network of the year.
I also have the new Motorola v3x (just released on the three network)
like the v3 razor but with a 2meg pixel camera, not such a rubbish network

Like 3 Mobile services this phone is absolutely shocking!! After enduring
bad reception, my LG U8810 handset finally stopped working 2 weeks before
the 12mth warranty ran out. Their replacement handset lasted a further
3 mths before also screwing up! Their “only” offer was to
take on another 24 mth contract and they would give me a replacement
handset… yeah right!! Do NOT deal with 3!!!! I hope this prevents
at least one person from going through the same experience!!

Worked well for about a year, like all Korean goods, after which it
started crashing. Battery started out with 2-3 days on average use.
Now i'm lucky to get a day. Microphone stuffed up numerous times. Had
a situation where I would answer calls and the other person would'nt
hear a thing. Worst of all, the problem was intermittent. HUTCHINSON
THREE only provides refurbished handsets which die sooner or later and
they COULD not care less. If you are looking for a network to sign up
with, unless you are completely stoned, you would stay away from THREE.
They once billed me an extra 250 dollars for using internet via my mobile
phone. I did some calculations and that required me to sit down with
my phone for 6-7 hours surfing the web through my phone. The only day
I used internet through the mobile was when I first bought the phone,
6 months ago. Ridiculous. Took 4 weeks of arguing and coaxing before
the waived the amount. Overall LG Phones Blow THREE Blows Big time.

This is the worst phone ever. For those who gave it 5 stars, you're
lucky. You're the ones receiving a phone without errors. ALMOST EVERY
GODDAMN PHONE in this model has broken down. The microphone is GLUED
to the shell, that's why it makes a noice compared to heavy rain when
you call someone (If it brakes free). The reception changes rapidly,
sometimes it wont even care to search the net again. And for those who
glorifies the mp3-playing ability, 14 Megs and a poor audio quality..

in one sentence. DON'T BUY THE PHONE.

This phone seemed great for the first couple of weeks - but it soon
became boring - as the memory is only capable of storing a very small
amount of mp3's and videos, the video quality is worse on playback,
and in the year that I've had it - I've managed to send one file through
infra-red, and it took 23 mins. The reception goes from 4 bars to none
to 2 bars to no signal for the next 20 mins to 4 bars etc. etc. and
the phone froze in the middle of downloads which the phone company still
charged me for. Anyone who likes this phone knows nothing about phones.
I even managed to get myself the one up, U8210 or something, and that
was no better at all. There are numerous phones on better deals - DON'T
BUY THIS ONE

I think this phone is the worst phone with most of the video phone features.
At first the phone looked very good, everything was working perfectly
until from one day when it started dieing on me every minute i was talking
to someone on the phone. It switches off automatically, and like old
computers, it FREEZES letting you do nothing but take out the batteries
and switch it on again. It has got the WORSTTTTTTTT reception, one moment
u can hear the other person talking and next moment you dont. Unlike
other phones it has NO GAME at all, you hav to PAY and download game
if yout want to play any. You cant access to any other WAP page other

This phone is pretty alright, if you want a basic 3g phone. But because

I've had this phone for 7 months now, and it is a good phone when you
first buy it, but after a while you notice all the flaws it carrys,
such as if and when you assign a downloaded ring tone to a number, when
that number rings it lags when you answer and takes about 3 seconds
for the person to hear you're 4th "hello?" It does have a tendancy to
lag quite a bit when you use the camera and just generally changing
the settings. That reallys ticks me off. In general it's easy to get
on with, but can try your patience at times. Don't expect to stick with
this phone for a year.

Well, I've had it for a year and just upgraded to a pda/smartphone As
a TELEPHONE I have to tell you that this is GREAT, my previous 3G clamshell
effort from NEC was utterly appauling, dropping calls every 5 minutes,
not ringing when people called me yet still showing many a bar of signal
strength, re-booting itself etc etc etc After the NEC which was NOT
USEABLE AS A BUSINESS TOOL the LG has scored very highly It's lighter,
smaller, tougher and infinitely more powerful in terms of signal strenth
/ reception It has had the odd issue, the battery can overheat in hot
climates if kept close to your heart in a chest pocket for example and
the beggar switches itself off silently which can annoy Mine has been
dropped a couple of times and for the last month the microphone has
not worked so I've had to plug in the in-ear headset which is a fiddle
STILL it has been pretty dependable so I'm a bit worried that the new
PDA/Smartfone might be as bad as my old NEC bag o meard Good Points,
pretty RELIABLE AS A TELEPHONE, small size, Good battery life, excellent
speaker for hands free & ringtones, fairly simple to use BAD POINTS
PHONE WISE THE WORST POINTS ARE THE LACK OF BLUETOOTH & THE TINY AMOUNT
OF MEMORY The 3 network remains a "Walled Garden" THIS IS A MASSIVE

Don't believe anyone who has given this phone a good rating. All the
rumours are true. It's a load of pants as is the network (don't know
who voted for them as network of the year , must have been rigged!).
I was warned not to change to three when my old contract ran out. Should
have listened. 10 reasons not to get one are as follows. 1. Phone signal
will die at random and you have to switch the phone on and off to get
it back. 2. Signal will fluctuate when you don't move around. 3. The
camera is rubbish quality as is the video camera function. 4. The phone
will crash when you connect to a computer with XP. 5. The battery will
start to die after about 7 months. 6. The buttons will start to break
after about 6 months. 7. Although you get some earphones to use your
phone as an MP3 player it only has enough memory for 1 mp3. 8. The 3
network is useless and their customer service is awful. 9. The network
coverage is extremely poor especially for video coverage. 10. The GPS
is very slow and crashes constantly. If you try to cancel your contract
3 will have none of it. I just sacked my last month of the contract

to complain using the SALE OF GOODS ACT, because if they are unable
to provide the service that they stated, or are unable to repair the
goods satisfactorily then you should be entitled to your money back

If I could give a lower rating that 1 star I would! I agree wholeheartedly
with the majority of reviews saying how rubbish this phone and network
is. I purchased my phone in September after having enormous bills with
my previous network I thought, and it sounded like 3 was too good a
deal to miss. As I found out the hard way though as the saying goes
you only pay for what you get. I've had trouble with the phone from
the start I had to wait nearly 2 weeks for my old number to be ported
over from my previous network provider and after that time I noticed
the problems. I had full reception one minute the next the reception
went completely and I kept on getting intermittent reception even without
moving. After that time the shop where I bought the phone would not
take it back as it was outside their exchange period and 3 would not
cancel the contract or said I had to pay back the full 12 months still
outstanding! Their customer service is awful. They can't seem to understand
(or don't want to) any problems and have to put you on hold for ages.

it does not log missed calls on the screen or in the calling lists.
My boyfriend tried ringing me 5 times in a row and my phone was on with
signal, and 3 would not allow the call though and sent him to the ansaphone
and other times it did get through I missed, and it did not show the
missed calls! A BAD PHONE!!!!!

Hi Everyone, Hutchinson 3G have taken me for a ride big time. Like some
of you I have submitted hy handset for repair 4/5 times and got the
same hunk of junk back. I get terrible static on the line, and I'm sure
they are breaking their contract by doing this. Please bear with me
I am creating a website for people to lodge complaints of every kind
and it should be up within the next fortnight. Please tell everyone
you know to go there when it's up as I'm looking for 1000+ complaints,
which should make the company sit up and take notice. If anyone actually
has anything positive to say about this handset or company please let
me know as I was worried it was the area I was in or something. Disgruntled

I have had this phone for a year now, and have been frustrated with
it from the start. The software is awkward and often crashes requiring
a restart. Everytime I went to connect it to my computer, it would crash,
requiring a restart. On several occasions the signal has copmletely
died, not due to coverage, and have been unable to use the phone for
several days. Avoid this phone, there are many better out there!

you can make the calls!!the 3g network is not worth a carrot,I have

I've had this phone since last June and I have to say that I agree with
the vast majority of reviews about this phone-it is a very poor phone
in comparison to what is arund and was around at the time of me buying
it. And 3G as a network is just rubbish. How can you explain losing
3G reception capability at 5am in the morning?? Or having texts you
send to mates being delivered 24 hours later, or (and this is the best
one) the network getting over-crowded at xmas to the point where you
can have full reception yet still can't make a call or send a text when
you want and this happened the entire December just gone! If anyone
is thinking of getting a 3G phne and lives in the East London area and
works in Central London I would seriously urge you to choose a different
network-3G should't be allowed to call themselves a mobile phone network
until they can sort out there coverage and network problems!

the same problem. Only after five weeks of use! Reception is poor, keeps
loosing signal even when i'm standing next to someone with the same
phone who has full bars. The gadgets on the phone work. Unfortunately
it just can't make calls. Slight problem for a mobile..... Three customer

I and two others started a company in August this year and bought 3

Within 2 months all three phones developed problems - the lines really
crackled and one on of the phones we could not hear the person on the
end of the phone. We needed to be on call 24/7 so asked for replacements
in November (now 12/01/05) 3 refused point blank to change them having
said that we would have to send them back which would take a minimum
of three days to repair, over a two week period made over 20 calls with
still the same response. We cannot be without any mobile phone due to
the industry we are in, period. I even phoned 3 head office in Hemel
Hempstead who only diverted me back to the 'Help-Line', no one there
would accept any sort of responsibility....I asked to speak to the MD
at Hemel who, I was told, did not speak to customers (maybe he should
because he would know what the people paying his wages really feel).
The people we bought the phones off have sent through 3 new phones today
after chasing them for nearly 5 weeks. These are refurbished Motorola
A835's, my god what a heap of junk they are. We cannot afford to pay
off the contract (this will cost us a total of £750 for all phones)
and have until July till the contract ends. I have even sent emails
to 3 customer services who have not even bothered to reply. To those
that have this phone and are on 3, you must be one of the very lucky

Well, my first impression of this phone was that it had a fairly poor
quality feel to it. It felt more plastic, and the flip screen less robust,
than the NEC e 616, which I make most comparisons to, as they are quite
close in many aspects (and the fact that my sister owns one). However,
after asking about this in the shop, they assured me there was nothign
wrong with the quality, and I'm prepared to take their word for it.
The screen is very good. LG seems to have learned what very few other
manufacturers have figured out yet. If you have over 65000 colors: USE
THEM! This is by far the most illustrative and colorful screen I have
seen on any phone. It makes all Nokia and NEC phones look gray. The
menu is also very simple and well laid-out, in my opinion, with a choice
of three different menu styles. A nice touch, and it refreshes the whole
menu when you change it. There are nine main menus, with a very conventional
setup, which is not a bad thing in this case. The keys in general are
okay... learning your way around the menus becomes a piece of cake after
a few days, even with so many buttons (26!). However, the keys do have
a tendency to not do anything, even though you pressed a key and heard
a 'click!'. Annoying, but not intolerable. The multimedia is quite fleshed
out. The camera, which I know is a very important part of the phone
for many, is very good, although little light always presents a problem.
the flash is USELESS, unless you're taking a picture of something closer
than a foot away. The spinning-camera thing is COOL, and also practical.
Having not used the video function very much, I'll reserve any harsher
judgement, but it seems to be on par with the camera - which means,
very good standard. Audio is one of the worse aspects of the LG. It
cant play music while the phone is closed, unless you have the headset
in, and with only 16 MB of diskspace, you'll be lucky to fit 3 songs
in it. The non-extenable memory also bug me to madness. Speaking of
headset - the handsfree function (and headphones in general) exceeded
my expectations by far. They are very good. Being able to connect very
easily to a computer and download songs that way is also very useful.
Battery time is EXCELLENT! Having heard friends complain about the e616
for ages about their battery time, I'm so glad that I only have to charge
my phone on average every 3 days. Reception is pretty much like all
3G phones - okay. no more. But at least the LG doesnt hang up for no
reason like the NEC. Reception problems have never bothered me. To sum
up: Loads of color, simple and consistent menus, very functional key
make this phone a pleasure to use, and allows you to spend hours just
playing around in the endless menus. Excellent camera AND video functions,
although the memory is a bit too low. Max 3 mp3 songs. Recpetion okay.
Extra stuff (handsfree, phone manager for PC) very usful. A pleasant
surprise for me, who wasnt expecting them.
