Verdict

Finally, to sum it up, the KC 550 with its exceptional 5 MP camera and a low price turns out to be a good competitor. Before you go out and buy one, you should remember that it does not support GPS and isn�t 3G ready. If these don�t matter to you, the KC550, priced at Rs 15,990, is a good deal.

LG KC550 detailed review

Slide-n-shoot

The glossy black front with shiny metal accents looks good on the LG KC550 while the matte rubber finish at the back of it helps handling and adds on to the good looks. The glossy front is, however, a smudge magnet. The 2.4-inch colour display, with a QVGA resolution of 240 x 320 pixels, is bright, and quite vibrant.


The build quality of the KC550 is good, thanks to its partial metallic body. The keys are brightly lit and well spaced out for comfortable operation. The overall built quality of the keys is good.

This phone is still a triband phone, and that’s just sad. However, the signal reception of this phone is good, and you will not get disconnected every now and then in areas of lower signal strength.

The KC 550 sports a 5 Megapixel autofocus camera with a power LED flash and a self portrait mirror, It’s capable of capturing images with a maximum resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels. The camera uses Schneider-Kreuznach certified optics, and is protected by a sleek shutter with a stylish brown metallic accent.

On the video recording front, this camera is a star with the ability to record video at a resolution of 720 x 480 pixels at 30FPS. The phone has an inbuilt accelerometer, and can automatically change screen orientation based on the way you hold it.

The KC 550 has a 900 mAh battery which can take up to 3 days of moderate usage with just a single charge.

Finally, to sum it up, the KC 550 with its exceptional 5 MP camera and a low price turns out to be a good competitor. Before you go out and buy one, you should remember that it does not support GPS and isn’t 3G ready. If these don’t matter to you, the KC550, priced at Rs 15,990, is a good deal.
