LG KE850 Prada Phone is a small and light device. Its dimensions are 3.9″ x 2.1″ x .5″, it weighs a mere 3 ounces, so I think that we can compare the device with the Apple iPhone, wich weighs over 50% more. But, the Prada phone has a number of real off-screen buttons and controls. The call control and the back keys are placed on the front of the phone, on the right edge you can find a lock key and a multi-function camera/music key, and on the left edge is the ring profiles key, volume control, and the charger/headset port.There isn’t any keypad or stylus. You interact with the KE850 when you place your finger on the screen. The main menu of the KE850 system is arranged like tabbed folder pages full of icons, so it’s very simple to understand and use it. Sometime you get frustrated because your fingers are too large for the small on-screen controls, such as the scrollbars used in many places.

One of the greatest features of the KE850 is the 2 megapixel, auto-focus camera. You can take fairly nice quality photos in most situations, but like almost all the cameraphones the photo quality deteriorates in the darker scenes. You can also record video clips with the KE850 can also record video clips in a number of pixel resolutions, including 400×240 pixel widescreen mode. In terms of making calls, the KE850 put in an average performance. The reception on the 1900MHz band used by T-Mobile was acceptable, but it isn’t really high class. The audio quality was good most of the time, although the speakerphone has an average performance. Also you can talk on the phone up to  5.25 hours.The LG Prada is a fine looking piece of electronics that will make just about anybody look good.
