LG GT505 3 Stars

« Back to reviews LG GT505

Look and feel

The neat design and small chassis size make the GT505 an ideal phone to slip into your pocket.

Ease of use

The resistive touch-screen can be hard work in use, but the interface is user friendly. We found texting was somewhat challenging.


While the GT505 offers a good range of features from an FM Radio to Orange Maps, it seems odd that there is no social networking app.


The GT505 does the job in a workmanlike manner, but it’s hardly spectacular in its performance.

Battery life

The battery life is pretty good – you won’t have to recharge every day, despite the fact that the GT505 has a touch-screen with a reasonably large display.

Handy size, nice styling, decent camera.
Texting is hard; the touch-screen is sluggish and there is no 3.5mm headphone jack.
