The LG CU 500 review for everyone
I have just acquired the LG CU 500 and I just wanted to add my comments. I have just purchased the phone from the evil Cingular empire and I must say that this phone ROCKS!!
PROS: I actually called LG and spoke with a very cool technical representative named Casey. He told me in no uncertain terms that there is no phone in this catagory that will match the CU 500 feature-to-feature. He told me that he was very open to other phones and that I really should consider this phone for the things that I need. I live in Washington, DC and travel overseas frequently, so I require a quad band phone. The CU 500's 3G capacity makes video play back soooo nice. The mp3 player is great and since I purchased a 1GB microcard I have all the music I want on the go. It has a great speakerphone. The menu surfing and functionality is superb! The video quality is exceptional and the 1.3 MP camera (the swivel is great) is of equal quality. The bluetooth feature is great (I am still exploring the possiblities with the calendar, business card and picture sharing).
CONS: My only concern would be the battery life of the phone. LG does have some issues with producing batteries that can handle the load of multi-feature phones but all in all, the CU 500 is one of the best phones on the market.
