LG CU720:
One of LG appliance stars of 2007 was certainly the LG Shine. At the time, the only example available was the LG Shine KE970, made primarily for the European and Asian markets. You can get an unlocked version for the United States, but it would cost you a pretty penny. Also, it did not have 3G, and its features are quite underwhelming. Fast-forward several months later we finally got the American counterpart, the LG CU720 Shine. It is not only quad-band (rather than tri-band as KE970), the CU720 Shine also comes equipped with 3G. Aside from that, not much has improved - there are still many of the same characteristics, the same flat keyboard, and I did not like the CU720 joystick navigation. But if you really need the shiniest cursor on the block phone, the LG Shine certainly fits the bill. The price is $ 149.99 with a two-year contract for service.

The LG Shines perfectly and personifies its name. Not only does it shine, it positively gleams. It has a beautiful polished metal exterior and a sparkling mirror-finished squarely screen that exudes luxury and refinement. In fact, you can use the screen as a small compact mirror when the phone is in standby mode. Measuring 3.93 inches high by 1.99 inches wide by 0.59 inch thick and weighing about 4.23 ounces, Shine has a solid stainless steel casing which makes it very solid feel in the hand. The Radiance of the slider mechanism shows strength, and it requires a strong push to enable it to slide smoothly. Likewise for KE970, however I wish they could make it easier to open since my fingers often slipped on the shiny surface of the phone.

If you press any button on the phone, a beautiful 2.25-inch screen will appear underneath the mirrored finish of the screen. With support of 262000 colors, the screen is simply superb, and the images are rich in details and colors. Another beautiful thing on the screen, it is "multi-angle vision technology" that allows you to view the screen from almost any angle. You can adjust the numbering style of policing, and the backlight brightness. The menu interface is fairly simple you have the choice of an icon or menu from with different styles.

Unlike the original Shine, Shine CU720 packs a little punch when it comes to functionality. For the basics, the CU720 Shine has a beautiful 1000-entry contacts list with the entry in each room for two numbers, e-mail address, and a memo. You can also assign a contact to any caller group, a photo identity of the caller, or one of 10 polyphonic ringtones. Other basic features include a vibrate mode, text and multimedia messaging, an alarm clock, a calculator, notepad, a calendar, calculator, tip calculator, a world clock, a to-do list, a stopwatch, a unit converter, a date finder, and a d-day counter. More advanced features include voice command support, a wireless Web browser, a voice recorder, e-mail, instant messaging (AOL contends, Windows Live, and messaging services Yahoo), a high - speaker, and stereo Bluetooth.

IMEI (ALL): *#06#

The phone also works well as just a phone. My friend that called me heard me loud and clear, as well, although the quality suffers a bit in windy areas. Speakerphone calls does however not work so well, because of a slightly muffled and tinny sound emitting from the phone speak
Disadvantage: The LG Shine CU720 has a tiny and very sensitive navigation joystick, plus a flat and crowded keypad.Overall the phone is good if you want a luxurious look.
