TechRadar's verdict

"It doesn't do all the high-end stuff that other top-of-range touchscreen models do, and its text inputing will put off some. But the user interface is generally good to use. And for mobile buyers on a restricted budget who want their share of touchscreen action, the LG Cookie KP500 delivers a decent set of features in a very attractively designed – and affordable package."
