The main feature on the phone's exterior is a small LCD screen which can display incoming call information, the time and date, signal strength and remaining battery life. It can also be used as a viewfinder when taking pictures with the clamshell closed. The phone's VGA camera lens itself is located below the screen, with a 'shutter' button on the right side of the phone and volume controls on the left.
Flip open the F2400 and you'll be greeted by a sight that should be pleasing to those tired of having to squint to see what buttons they're pressing on a mobile. The phone features a large and logical button layout, which even the biggest of fingers should have no problem navigating. Menu navigation is done through a five-way button underneath the screen, which also acts as shortcuts for some key functions. The screen itself is large and bright, boasting a 128x760 pixel resolution and the ability to display 65k colours.
Its other features are pretty basic -- there's your standard calculator, world clock, voice recorder and organiser functionalities. The phone's camera can take images up to 640x480 pixel resolution, and while there's no ability to record short movies, it is capable of a nine-shot burst mode (but only at 128x160 resolution). The F2400 also comes with a 'flash', which in this case is a light that turns on around the outside camera lens. This 'flash' doesn't really provide that much illumination, so don't expect to be able to take decent pictures at low light levels.
Another concern is the phone's data cable, which is an antiquated serial data cable rather than the more modern USB. This means longer times to transfer information such as photos between the phone and the PC -- that is assuming your PC has a serial port (some newer models may not).
Despite these niggling comments, the LG F2400 is a more than decent entry-level phone with some impressive features for the price.
