Compare Orsay Deals

The LG Orsay KC550 in dramatic black  is a slider mobile with a 5 megapixel camera as a highlight. The lens optics are from Schneider-Kreuznach, a German company with nearly 100 years’ experience and it comes with autofocus and flash unit, plus an image stabiliser. Perhaps even more impressive are the video options, shooting at 30fps at a resolution of 720x480.

The design of the KC550 breaks the traditional camera lens placement on a slider handset, preferring a vertical placement on the rear of the phone and giving it a slide cover, rather than atop the slide itself. This makes it very comfortable to use, allowing a more normal camera grip and easy access to the shutter release.

The keypad is reminiscent of the LG Chocolate in both looks and use and the large navigational D-pad is precise. The menu system is simple, with easy to recognise icons and a speedy response. The soft keys are sensibly large and, at 97 x 51 x 14. mm the Orsay to sits well in your hand.

There is TV-out (for viewing pictures and video), FM radio and of course, a media player supporting all the popular music formats such as MP3. An accelerometer is not only used for switching between portrait and landscape in the gallery, but also for collection of games on the KC 550, too: six in total, including fishing and darts. You can even use the TV-out to play these games on your television screen.

The KC550 has excellent Web connectivity through GPRS and EGE, 12 Mbytes’ internal memory and a microSD card slot. Battery life is rated up to six hours’ talk time and 450 hours on standby from a full charge.
