LG KF600 dual-display sliderphone

Two screens are better than one

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

The music player has a dedicated button on the side of the phone. Press it and a basic and unpromising list of three options - All Songs, Playlists and Settings - appears. But select a track, and the front of the phone is transformed into a snazzy looking music player.

The main display shows track details and album cover art, while the InteractPad provides play controls and a progress bar that allows you to move back and forwards quickly through songs.

LG KF600 touchscreen handset

A snazzy-looking music player

You can get tracks onto the phone in the usual ways: using LG's PC Suite sync software connected to a PC using a USB cable, by using the phone in mass-storage mode and dragging tracks across from a PC, or by Bluetooth.

You’ll need a memory card to store more than the handful of songs the KF600's 25MB of internal memory has room for. The Micro SD card slot on this handset is placed under the battery, so you have to power down to swap cards. Cards of up to 2GB are supported.

The music player’s audio performance is reasonable through the average-quality earphones supplied. A nice touch is that LG’s in-box set are a two-piece affair, with a standard 3.5mm headphone socket adaptor mid-way into which you can plug in any set of regular headphones.

With our Sennheiser reference headphones, the KF600's sound quality improved significantly – we’d recommend upgrading if you want the best music experience. Bluetooth cans are supported as well. The FM radio interface on the KF600 looks good too, and puts in a steady performance.
