User Comments and Reviews about LG KU580
To address any prior reveiw(s) .the SE TM717 is a dumb-phone, NOT a smartphone. Comparing this phone to a Blackberry, Android or iPhone isn't fair because it's not that type of phone. For one, you do NOT need an expensive data plan with this phone. The minimal $5-$10 data package that is available for these phones allows you email access, internet and possibly some text messaging allotment depending on your carrier.The good: GPS, 3.2mp camera, bluetooth, expandable memory slot, visual alert notifications, extremely thin design, lightweight, external display, RSS reader, (including podcasts) and 3G speeds. (Some of you may say why not 4g?' to which I reply that there is no dumb-phone on the market that has any need for anything greater than 3G speeds.)The bad: T-Mobile has blocked out certain JAVA apps from executing and utilizing the network in order to function properly. Hence, when you download an app via the phone browser or one that you transfer on to the phone, there is a good chance it will not work. I'd say you have a 50-50 shot.What this phone is good for: People who are active and do not want a huge phone to shove in their pants pocket. This phone will slide into any shirt or pant pocket and nobody will ever know it's there. You can utilize Google Maps via the GPS and find your way to/from any two points with no problem. Need to take a quick picture? no problem with the 3.2mp camera. For a flip phone the quality is above average, however compared to other 3.2mp camera phones available today the quality is average. If you need to listen to music/audio in the car you can use Bluetooth to sync up and play everything on your phone.Overall: It's a great phone at a great price that will satisfy anyone who is incredibly active and doesn't want to have to worry about big phones with big displays and big, costly data plans. This phone is great to grab, throw in your pocket, run out the door and not have to worry about anything else.
