Can a low cost touchscreen handset deliver the goods?

The LG Cookie Fresh GS290 is a low cost handset with a touch screen, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with LG having that as a goal.

The problem, really, comes into play with usability. The touch screen is difficult to master, text entry can be slow, the camera is not up to snuff, and web browsing, because of both the absence of 3G and the poor browser, is almost a complete no-go area. read more →

  • Small and light
  • Low cost
  • Lots of software on board
  • Animated avatars will appeal
  • 3.5mm top mounted headset connector
  • No 3G
  • No Wi-Fi
  • Unresponsive resistive touch screen
  • Poor web browser
  • Disappointing camera

LG Cookie Fresh GS290 Review

Back in 2009 Samsung made a relatively successful attempt to conquer the market of affordable handsets with touch-sensitive screens by introducing the Corby series (the Corby S3650, CorbyPRO B5310 , Corby Plus B3410 , Corby Pop C3510 ) and models like the Samsung Lindy M5650. It seems LG intends to strike back in 2010 and try to win over customers with the new Cookie members. The LG Cookie Fresh GS290 does have what it takes to weather the storm and make a stand against its rivals. read more →

  • Headphone-free radio
  • Good in-call and audio playback quality
  • 3.5mm jack
  • Sluggish when running certain applications
  • Resistive screen

LG Cookie Fresh GS290

If you’re after a touchscreen phone with all the trimmings, we’ll be honest, the LG Cookie Fresh GS290 - successor to the massively successful five million selling LG Cookie - is not the phone for you.

But if you want a prod able panel, one-touch social networking access, a phone that won’t cause an unsightly bulge in your kecks and money’s a bit of an issue, then this is well worth a closer look. read more →

Worst Phone

Never buy this phone because the main disadvantage is TOUCH will not work after some days. The mobile will be used only for incoming call if the touch is not functional. I brought this mobile and it was very slow but somehow manged to use after some days the touch functionality become worse now totally not functioning.
