LG A290 - Expert Reviews

Introduction

LG A290 is a low end simple basic feature phone which still has out of the box functionality, as it is a triple SIM GSM phone which is available at a very affordable price. This advance triple SIM phone lets you stay connected anytime and anywhere with your friends, family and siblings as now you will not face any network coverage problem on the go. It is an elegantly styled phone which let you enjoy multiple SIM cards within one single device so that when two of your networks are not working properly in any spoke location, then you can rely on the third network and can remain in contact with your family to let them know regarding your whereabouts. This basic phone has triple benefits as well as the convenient triple SIM capability automatically removes the hassle of having to carry multiple devices at the same time, the phone features the longest battery life in the market and is completely capable of carrying the basic functionalities of a phone such as receiving and making calls, sending and receiving messages and some music playback. This device comes in a compactable size of 113.5 mm x 51 mm x 13 mm and is very light to carry for long time as it carries a weight of 92 grams only. With such a light weight, LG A290 can easily reside in the front pocket of your shirt without putting so much load on it. The design of this feature phone is not extra ordinary which makes it stand out of the queue but the silver matte finish all around the body gives it a premium look and thick rubber bezel surrounding the device provides it a sturdiness. Since it is a cheap phone, so one cannot expect it to be cased in metal but the plastic touch with glimmering effect gives a royal effect to the device. Below the non-touch screen, there is the same old alpha numeric keypad which is made up of quality rubber that will not get loose with excessive usage as is the case with other rubberish keypads. When the whole mobile market is accustomed to dual SIM phones and is completely filled with such type of devices, either they are low end or high end, a triple SIM phone will change the market breeze. It is not the first time, when any telecomm company has come up with such type of idea as earlier OTECH F1 mobile came in the market which was a quad SIM phone but this step by LG will surely take it one step further than its contemporaries.

Operating system and UI

LG A290 does not boasts any capacitive multiple touch screen as the trend is prevailing in the mobile phone market, but its 2.2 inches wide screen is sufficient enough to provide a nice view of the display with a resolution of 176 x 220 pixels along with a color combination of 256K colors which enables you to easily differentiate between the various icons and images that are displayed on the colorful screen. The density of 128 ppi pixels let you comfortably use the screen for long time without any sign of blurredness. The device comes with a pre-installed browser WAP 2.0/xHTML which provides a good browsing speed to the user. Running on LG's own proprietary operating system, LG A290 comes with a plastic casing where there is a microUSB port on the right side of the device, 3.5 mm earphone socket and SIM switch hot key on the top, battery and camera at the back and a microSD card slot under the back cover. The keypad below the screen is rubberish and holds a 4-way navigating button at the top centre which is surrounded by a metal rim that provides easiness during navigation. Most of the tasks are controlled by this middle menu key which has four keys on both its sides that are meant to receive and disconnect the calls and to go to the home page and to open phonebook entries that are stored in the device.

Other Features

Though LG A290 is a simple phone which is meant for basic functionalities but it supports various audio and video formats such as MP3, AAC+, WAV and WMA music players and MP4, H.263 and H.264 video players that enables you to have full on entertainment and fun with this simple yet rocking phone. You can play and record MP3 ringtones on this device as it comes with in built loudspeakers and has 3.5 mm earphone jack which enables you to attach your device with other sound output devices such as speakers and woofers so that you can enjoy the complete music falling on your ears from each corner of the room. The device also supports connectivity to FM radio that enables you to keep on updating your knowledge regarding the current happenings in the world, along with listening to your favorite tracks 27 x 7.

Camera

The simple feature phone, LG A290, comes with a 1.3 MP camera which gives pictures of resolution 1280 x 960 pixels which is quite a good resolution size for such a small screen and can record video also. The camera comes with a flash feature that enables the user to have a snapshot even in the dark. Apart from this, there are no other features such as geo-tagging, face detection, smile detection and auto focus but being a low cost feature phone, one cannot expect these features from this device. There is no secondary camera for video calling as it does not support 3G network, neither it is a smartphone.

Connectivity

With LG A290, the user can connect to the world of Internet via GPRS through 2G network but apart from this, there is no support to EDGE, 3G, Wi-Fi, DLNA, GPS or WLAN. The user can connect their device to the nearby ones via Bluetooth v.2.1 with EDR and can attach LG A290 with PC or Laptop as it has microUSB port v.2.0 that enables you to transfer data from one device to the other.

Memory

LG A290 comes with an internal storage capacity of 19 MB and can store up to 1000 phonebook entries with photocalls along with call records and messages. To save more information, the user can expand the external memory up to 4 GB with the help of microSD card slot so that you can save a huge amount of data and information in this small packet.

Other Features

LG A290 is a simple phone so you cannot expect it to be fully loaded with lots of applications but this device supports Java which enables you to have good gaming experience. The phone does not come loaded with games but you can download games of your choice. Apart from games, one can also enjoy organizer which helps you to organist your favorite widgets according to your preference.

Battery

The battery of LG A290 is amazing as it provides a very long talktime along with standby time and enables you to have long time music and video playback without the fear of battery drainage. It consists of standard Li-Ion 1,500 mAh battery that is able to withstand approximately 15 hours of talk time and more than 20 hours of music playback. So, with this device, there arises no need to charge it on daily basis.

Connectivity

LG A290 supports GSM 2G networks for all the three SIMs and provides connectivity at a frequency of 850/900/1800/1900 MHz for all the three networks.

Other Features

LG A290 is a nice phone which is capable of gaining attraction due to its triple SIM functionality, long lasting battery and sturdy body that provides nice grip to hands. But regardless its Triple SIMs support and longer battery there are no other features that will help it to give tough competition to other competitors. At the same price, some companies are even offering smartphones like Samsung Galaxy Y which boasts 3G connectivity and is a touch screen phone. In basic phones category, LG A290 will get neck to neck competition from iBall Aaura, iBall Glam 3, Nokia 101, Samsung Guru and lots more.
