Design and style


Like a particular oversized musk hold fast, the LG Candy carries a fittingly irreverent design to complement them its fun-loving name. Three plenty of pink are actually offset by white trim through this AU$99 expense plan wonder, the superior of which slides in front to uncover a flat-as-a-tack T9 numeric keypad following. Around typically the edges of this phone you will see a a small number of common switches missing, there’s no volume rocker (who task might be taken by your along nav-keys all through calls) and the dedicated video camera button resides below the slider. There exists, however, a new micro-USB convey for charging and inserting in headphones, and some micro Sdcard slot at the opposite end for bulking all the way up this mini-music phone’s bodily storage.

On the bed of his phone you’ll see an revealed camera lens while you’re watching Candy’s 1. 3-megapixel present shooter and with an external usb speaker. There’s also a secondary front-facing camera that cam be applied for movie calling.


The person interface might be pretty standard on a phone of that caliber, but in spite of this, it’s attractively pre-loaded with a range of a moody charcoal menu style, or some glitzy white one. Getting around the phone is sort of intuitive, while using major parts clearly labeled and then the mechanical keys covered nicely.




Beyond basic principles of calling and messaging, the Candy bars packs a number of simple excess. There’s some Facebook icon at the main food linking want you to its mobile phone site, a Google logo who acts being shortcut in order to its browse function and a few pre-installed EA recreation demos.



The genuine surprise right now is that Candy is a 3G telephone, meaning it’s competent at faster web site browsing compared to most phones pricing under AU$100. This may be amazing if LG had also installed an sophisticated browser, but mainly because it stands, the world wide web surfing can be described as pretty time-consuming and frustrating affair, in spite of the 3G hardware below the hood.


Offered exclusively throughout Boost Transportable in Australia, the Candy includes a pair from Sound Doctor headphones; over-the-ear cans accompanied by a built-in hands-free microphone to look at calls while you’re head-banging with your favorite audio. Considering many bundle totally free with the AU$99 cell (many apparently sell for AU$49. 95 automatically) you won’t turn out to be surprised to hear that these are definitely pretty absurdity headphones. That they look extremely cute, depending within your style, but a sound you get rid of them probably will make you feel it’s enough time to clean out your hearing – the particular audio is so muddy and also muffled how the music we all played sounded significantly quieter in comparison to the headphones you compared it to. On typically the upside, they join in a pretty outstanding job for reducing noise to are an outstanding option if you need to chill out and not listen to be able to anything, as well as anyone, in any respect.


To connector the Sound Surgeons towards the LG Candy you’ll want to use typically the micro-USB-to-3. 5mm headphone adapter. The inclusion on this adapter could be cause for the purpose of celebration, opening the possibility to dump the Sensible Surgeons in your bin to use your treasured headphones alternatively. Unfortunately, the adapter only seems to use headphones that are included with a hands-free microphone. Adding some mic changes the 3. 5mm interconnection on ear buds slightly, and typically the adapter is actually compatible with this kind of connection.



If you’re right after a fundamental phone that is pink, then the LG Candy bars will do just fine. The earpiece wedding speaker isn’t fantastic, but we were able to make calls have got clear enough to find by. Texting is fine if your tiny kiddy hands can freely navigate any flat keypad : we observed it a tiny bit tricky with our chunky digits. Its modest 900mAh battery did a fantastic job too, lasting a variety of days regardless if we punished it with for several hours of popular music playback regularly.

The cameras is as well as you may expect by a $100 cellular, or a $100 camera for example. Even below the best lighting conditions typically the pictures are actually soft during focus and then the colors are nearly always washed out and about
