I think it looks quite masculine.
There's also a luxurious gold slider version, pink slider version, rhinestone version, and the MetalSkin versions:
LG presents the 2nd concert for these 2 groups:
So yea - I'm definitely not a gadget girl and I did not research cell phones at all before making the decision to buy it so I was taking a HUGE risk. There's actually not much about my cellphone (the candy bar version) online. It's really not much different than the slider - they're both basically a pretty standard fashion phone with 1GB of internal memory (it came with an extra 1GB microSD card). It's an mp3 player, organizer, voice recorder, video camera, and digital camera (2 mega pixel with "flash"). I was surprised by how many settings the camera had! The one thing that made me most hesitant about buying this phone is that it has only 2 mega pixels. The fact that it's such a new phone and that the normal mega pixel range for a regular digital camera these days is over 7 mega pixels, you'd sort of expect the mega pixels to be more than 2! So the quality of my pictures aren't that great. Another thing that isn't perfect about this phone is the shutter lag. When I take a picture, I always have to hold the phone super still for at least a second longer or else my picture will be blurry. It's a bit annoying and can be difficult especially since the cell phone is so light! Anyway, besides that, the cell phone has other features that make up for it. You can even view your office documents on it. Oh and the bonus feature is that it can be a mirror when the light is off! No need to carry a compact anymore, girls.
There are so many chunky (rounded) phones out there these days so I thought it was refreshing finding such a modern, slim, sleek and durable cellphone that had all the functions of the chunky ones. However, like all non-flip phones, the screen is vulnerable to scratches and isn't very pocket-friendly (if you want it to keep it lookin' like new). The back is made out of tough brushed steel.
I find it a pretty unisex phone... chic and metropolitanish. The mirror and slimness makes it more attractive for females, but its sleekness and metal casing makes it look impressive on a guy. Like all LG phones and LG products I've tried, it is very user-friendly. Unfortch, LG did not think of people with fat fingers when they made this. The buttons are small and those with large fingertips who have fiddled around with my cell, have found it difficult to punch in numbers. The battery life, on the other hand, is amazing. Sometimes, even when I use it often, I can go almost 4 days without it needing to be recharged! It has bluetooth, wireless, and comes with its own USB cable.
I always have my phone on vibrate so I haven't used the ring tones yet.
The slider (and I believe flip) version is coming to America soon (for about $400 I've heard), but the candybar version won't.
All in all, although the LG Shine Bar is not without flaws, I'm very happy with my purchase and recommend it!
There's a new phone out there from LG - KU990: The Complete Camera Phone that looks like a mix of the Chocolate, Shine, and Prada to me (oOOoo 5 mega pixels!) Check it out HERE.
