LG Cookie pep: The Complete Review

A phone with cool features and also quite light on the pocket is always appreciated. Keeping this exactly in mind, LG had launched the LG Cookie pep in India after six months of its International launch (known as LG Cookie pop elsewhere). This compact and Fully touch-screen phone with Social Networking apps is basically targeted towards the youth.

It is priced quite competitively at INR 7,500.

My thoughts : Review

The fun graphical interface with pocket applications, live cricket simulation and access to Facebook, Twitter and MySpace is surely going to attract the younger generation. We also need to see how the 360° marketing plan for LG (the biggest marketing plan by LG till date) works out.

The sleek design and a single back lit Button operation function is expected to be a hit. Considering all the features, the phone is decently priced and gives value for money. But, I expected LG to launch a 3G version of Cookie, but that sadly dint happen. I will call this as the only turn-off!

    Don’t go for cookie pep.
    It is a waist phone.
    The outgoing sound quality is very bad.
    The person at other end who is talking to you never able to hear you proper
    FM will not scan channels automatically
    If you manually set then also the output will not be clear
    it is hanging whenever you open the music icon
    Check this three features very clearly if you go for purchasing this item

    which 1 should i buy
    cookie pep or nokia 5233
    i heard that pep gets hot after short usage period??????????


    Apart from the performance being slow the service also sucks

    The theft and other warranties are bullshit. I bought a LG cookie and it got robbed in 2 weeks, in-spite of applying for the insurance thrice i dint get any response from either LG or Cholamendal or General unsurance company, If they are selling by showing insurance, its mere bulshiting


    it is a good phone its voice quality is awesome some people r saying that it doesn’t support mp4 videos its supports mp4 videos of some diffrent version so its better u download videos from funmaza .com

    I have been using this phone for 6 months now. initially it gave a bit hanging problem. then it used to restart itself but i ignored it coz it is still nice.. i am having more issues with it now.. the mp3 files when i put it they are ok.. after a day it says file format not supported. same happens with images as well.. the only video format it supports is 3gp.. even videos have the same issue… two of my friends have the same phone and same issues… we all bought it around the same time.. if this is fixed for the price it is an awesme phone

    Cost and lookwise Good, but some of the main draback of mobile(Experince Using 8Months)
    1>Touch Screen will not working properly, if once slip from the Hand.
    2>There is no Substitue Key, when Screen is not working.
    3>Low Battry Backup.

    LG Cookie Pep – GD 510 Sucks!!!!!1

    No Network – my house at Banjarahills Roda #10 in hyderbad is a blind spot (its the heart of the city)- may be i will have to climb the tower
    The touch needs a hammer – they did not sell me.
    it has no flashplayer, so if you think you will stream videos. you will be sorry!!!!!!!
    Sadly its not 3G
    and I now shout at my loved ones cos they cannot hear me!!!
    Better spend 7000/- bucks on something better…..
