LG KF700 slider phone

Triple-action, touch-screen handset

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

As a mobile music player, the KF700 puts in a very acceptable performance, with another easy-to-follow interface that doesn’t bank on excessive touch gimmickry. Tracks are listed in straightforward categories MP3 player owners will feel familiar with.

You can scroll through tracks using finger or dial control, so it’s easy to select songs. There's a screen lock button on the side of the phone that can be engaged at any time, so you don’t have to worry about accidental tune-playing in your pocket.

LG KF700 sliderphone

There’s no stylus supplied, so it’s all about finger action

LG has equipped this mobile with its proprietary earphone/charger/data cable connector, so no there’s no standard 3.5mm headphone jack on the phone. Happily, LG bundles a two-part headset that uses a 3.5mm adaptor, so you can easily add your own, better-quality headphones. But the the connector's on the side of the phone so it snags easily in your pocket.

To avoid this, you can connect a wireless pair of cans over Bluetooth. You can also get a rather tinnier experience piping tunes via the average loudspeaker. The KF700’s FM radio interface goes user-friendly rather than flashy too, and is a welcome extra.

Tunes can be stored on a Micro SD card – there’s a slot on the top of the phone, and cards up to 2GB are supported. There’s 90MB of internal memory, so you should invest in a card if you want to make the most of the player.
