"The only phone with these features at this price"5.0 starson by expatincebu
Pros: Price! This phone is less than half the price of phones with similar features. Touchscreen works great. UI is very intuitive and easy to learns/use. MP3 player has great sound.
Cons: The manual is uninformative and a real disappointment. Proprietary headphone jack. Syncing software is buggy and no syncing for the Mac. (Get synctunes).
Summary: It all depends on what you want. If you want business connectivity and a hand held computer, get an iPhone or a Blackberry. This phone does not compete in that arena.
I wanted a decent pocket camera, a good mp3 player, and an unlocked phone with a qwerty keyboard for text messaging. I got all three for the price of one with the cookie. I have had mine for almost two weeks and I love it more now than I did when I bought it. It has its quirks, what devices don't? Overall though it is a very functional device that fits my needs perfectly at a price I can afford.
My honest opinion is that LG has created a new niche in the mobile phone arena with the Cookie. Any other phone with comparable features is at least twice the price. People want cameras, phones, music. Who cares about GPS? I know where I am. If I want to surf the web I will use my laptop thank you. LG got the best of what you need at a price you can afford. I have been waiting for a phone like this for two years. Thanks LG!
