The touchscreen LG GD900 Crystal's transparent, touch-sensitive, glass keypad looks cool but is pretty pointless. And, while two touch-sensitive surfaces mean there are more places to poke, it also means it's easy to make erroneous taps. While the phone sports plenty of interesting features, their implementation is sometimes lacking
The super-cheap LG A140 looks good on paper, but it's let down by poor multimedia capabilities and a dismal screen. You have to accept some compromises in a phone of this price, though.
The LG GB220 is a basic phone that offers abundant style at a low price, and works perfectly well. It just lacks any killer features to get your geek juices flowing
The KP202 has a pleasing design and boasts good call quality as well as decent battery life. It lacks headline features, but you can't really expect flash extras for such a low price. On the whole it's a good performer for the money, but heavy texters might be better off checking out budget models from Nokia or Sony Ericsson instead
The LG KG810 Chocolate Folder is undeniably a sexy-looking phone. Holding and using it is not only an enjoyable experience, but one that you don't mind sharing with onlookers. Unfortunately, some of the feature set is a little lacklustre compared with the competition, and if you're looking for style and substance then you might want to test it out before you buy
The LG Optimus Chat looks and feels like a low-cost phone, but its Qwerty keyboard means it stands out from the horde of similarly priced Android handsets. If you're mad about messaging, it'll be worth a look.
The LG GW520 wants to be the best buddy of social-networking fiends, but other handsets are more suited to the role. This phone's lack of Wi-Fi and iffy touchscreen are big turn-offs
The LG Optimus GT540 offers a sleek design and a good line-up of multimedia features, but its below-par touchscreen and relatively old version of Android are disappointing
LG's U830 looks almost identical to the stylish LG KG810 from the outside, but on the inside it's got HSDPA (3.5G) connectivity giving you high-speed Web access on the go. Our only niggles are the fiddly touch-sensitive music buttons and the lack of expandable memory
The LG Optimus Me P350 offers an attractive design, but cuts corners elsewhere to ensure the price remains low. It's best suited to smart-phone newbies who want to get Android on the cheap.
It may be jam-packed with really great features, but the LG Chocolate BL40's disappointing user interface means it's not as satisfying a handset to use as the iPhone or HTC Hero
The LG Pop GD510 has a basic feature set, but it looks cute, it's easy to use and it has a pleasingly responsive touchscreen. It's just a shame that it lacks 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity
Its lush Qwerty keyboard is ideal for tapping out lengthy emails, but the LG Town C300's lack of 3G connectivity and the general shoddiness of its online experience make it hard to recommend wholeheartedly.
The LG Town GT350 may not be the perfect social-networking phone, but it's a decent all-round handset nevertheless
LG has learnt from its mistakes and come up with a phone that not only looks good but works well. While some of the features are gimmicky, we think it gets the balance right and hope to see more phones like this in the future
We'd be hard pressed to name a feature that the LG Arena KM900 doesn't have. We loved having so much power in our pocket, but it comes at a price. We found the Arena slow and unresponsive at times -- tapping out text messages, for example, is frustrating. But, if you're a patient typist dying for a touchscreen phone that does everything the iPhone can't, the Arena could be for you
The super-cheap LG GB102 is a fine choice if you're seeking a disposable secondary phone, or just can't be bothered with the hassle of a more complicated handset
The LG KF300's features are pretty basic, but we like how it crams big buttons and handy shortcut keys into a conservative-looking, thin clamshell that won't break the bank
