LG Cookie Fresh GS290

 

Cheap and cheerful are the watchwords for this slinky LG number. But is it a touchscreen winner?

LG Cookie Fresh GS290 review

 

The LG Cookie Fresh GS290's feature-set can be termed as 'smartphone lite', as it has plenty of features that smartphones have such as a camera, organiser and scheduler, social networking apps, email etc, but also forsakes plenty of other features.

The LG Cookie Fresh GS290 carries a price tag of £99 in the UK. The price-tag looks especially good when you look at the phone’s feature-set. However, its performance is strictly middle-of-the-road and that takes away a whole lot from the phone.

LG GS290 Cookie Fresh Review

 

The original LG Cookie was a big hit - over 10 million were sold and it helped popularise the touchscreen format for budget phone buyers. But in an age where the touchscreen phone is now the norm and the…

LiveSquare remains a fun way of organising your favourite contacts and we were fans of the personalised messages LG has included

The EDGE data speeds meant we were often left waiting for the browser to catch up with our page scrolling

LG Cookie Fresh (GS290) Review

 

So here we have the latest addition to the 'Cookie' range of mobile phones from LG, now we all know how popular the first LG Cookie was so how will the new one cope with the stiff competition out there? And can it really be better than its...

As the conclusion to my review I will say a closing statement that unfortunately my opinion is that as a ‘follow on’ handset from the extremely popular original LG Cookie the LG GS290 Cookie Fresh just isn’t a worthy successor to be honest.

LG - Cookie Fresh GS290

 

The Cookie Fresh GS290 from LG is a lower end mobile phone designed for those who want social networking features and a touch screen on a tight budget. SIM-free you can get it for a bit ...

The LG Cookie Fresh GS290 is a low cost, touch screened handset that suffers from the absence of Wi-Fi and 3G and also from having a screen too small for comfortable text entry. Its social networking apps may appeal, though there are many handsets...

LG Cookie Fresh (GS290) Review

 

LG recently released the successor to their low-price, touch screen and very popular LG Cookie phone in the form of the LG Cookie Fresh (GS290).

I must admit, I’ve never been a huge fan of phones from LG, but the GS290 has really impressed me. Despite the crowded main menu screen and below par camera, the phone itself is a really tidy little device. It certainly doesn't look or feel cheap and...

LG Cookie Fresh GS290 review

 

The Cookie Fresh GS290, which is the follow up to the extremely popular Cookie, is a truly budget priced mobile. We found it for £109.99 at Play.com SIM free, and on T-Mobile for £69.99 on pay as you go.

3.5mm headset jack, lots of software, animated avatars for your friends

No live Twitter widget, low resolution camera, resistive touch screen

A budget handset with some very positive plus points

LG GS290 Cookie Fresh Touchscreen Mobile Phone

 

The latest in LG's Cookie jar is the GS290 or Cookie Fresh. It's designed to offer the younger mobile user all that a mobile phone should without having them break into their savings. But does it deliver on its promises as a budget social networking,...

The Cookie Fresh comes with a price tag of Rs. 5,400 (MOP). For that price the Fresh comes off as a real bargain. It goes head to head with some of the Dual SIM budget devices that do offer similar functionality but the LG branding does help make for a...
