LG KC910 Renoir

Born and died in the last, have the Koreans as a screen background pre installed an image of the Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir in the last century. Otherwise, the camera phone in the presence is anchored and might be a brother of the Samsung M8800 Pixon.

  2. Data sheet

The two Korean manufacturers behind the scenes are working together or look down sharply from each other. Even visually, the similarity between the two camera phone is amazing: the dimensions are nearly identical, the touchscreen at the Renoir minimally smaller.

Below you will find three buttons: two keys of the telephone, and one who calls up the menu with favorites. Here, the user can gather the functions for him.

A back button needs but also the Renoir. LG realized this with a small button above the display. The place is not well chosen: Renoir to operate it with one hand, the thumb must stretch pretty much to get.

The limitation of the side buttons on the really basic necessities like better: the Renoir is content with the usual volume button, the camera button and a handle which locks the display against unwanted entry. Practical: The keypad lock can be solved directly by holding a button on the touch screen.

Touch screen menu: For LG old hat

Are almost old hat for LG touch screen phones, the touch-sensitive Prada Phone Finally, LG by ahead of Apple’s iPhone on the market. From the outset, LG has created a unique user interface that leverages the benefits of a touch screen: the main menu distributed the manufacturer on four horsemen are content as clearly separated, that one there finds exquisite features, where it is believed they also.

The Renoir responds to petitions submitted by finger both visually and as well on request with a short vibration, whose Intensität adjusted in detail. Rare were the first-ever touch screen models is not always reliable, responded at the test candidate to short adapts the interface mistakes.

However: When it comes to typing text, a mechanical keyboard is a better choice – continue no matter whether at the Renoir the virtual mobile phone or the virtual typewriter style keyboard on the display is used.

Unsightly stains, but Wi-Fi

A serious flaw of the Renoir: slightly stronger pressure on the display appear unsightly stains, while it is apart perfectly processed by the mentioned weakness.

As the great Renoir plus offers a Wi-Fi module that leads, for example, home free in the Internet. And the integrated GPS receiver is used, which helps to run the previously set distance or time during a Wizard of jogging.

Not so cheap: The connection for the headset is attached to the side. Also can this not remember Renoir after switching the music stored on the device or on the MicroSD card and must each create the lists of titles, artists or albums – which lasts longer than reasonable even for a small collection of music.

A Flash brings light into the darkness

In terms of camera, the Renoir that can make up ground. A disadvantage is that the camera cover must be opened by hand: it reminds Renoir patiently, if the cover to be opened or closed again after the shooting.

In addition, LG bought a real lightning, although with a slight blue tint provides the shots, but at least ensures that the Renoir also in very low light is ready for use.

The start time of the camera, the working time of the autofocus and shutter lag is at proper level. Say: In turbulent situations, such as sport, the auto focus should carry out advance his work, otherwise the desired motif will be difficult catch.

Partly exaggerated contrast

What is not only on the resolution, but slightly more exaggerated falls of some bright points especially to the high contrast, are good sharp, the recordings of the Renoir. Episode: The images are the colors while sticking sharp, but also slightly cooler, partly a bit corrupt.

Use of the Flash shows a bluish cast (see test shot left, the original photo you can download below in the download area: right click, “save target under”).

Also can be set, by the way, if the GPS receiver provides the shots with the geo data of the place of their origin, but the setting must be carried out again after every start of the camera.

Just measure the battery for a touch screen phone is scarce. The 240 x 400 pixel wide display is not quite as power-hungry, for the standby time is relatively short. Also the sound quality during a call is reasonably well, as the transmission and reception quality.
