What's good  

  • Sizable touchscreen display
  • Built-in QWERTY keyboard for messaging

What's bad  

  • Internal storage space is very limited
  • Short battery life

The LG 505C is a full touchscreen handset that also happens to have a built-in QWERTY keyboard. This keyboard slides out from behind the display and remains hidden when not in use. As you might have guessed, it comes in handy when it comes to long bouts of messaging on the go.

The 505C’s screen measures 2.8-inches diagonally, which is sizable for a phone of its kind. And while it only comes with a very small amount of internal memory, its contact list can hold up to 1000 entries and it can even send and receive files via Bluetooth wireless connectivity. It carries a 1-megapixel camera as a bonus.

As a simple feature phone, it offers a good amount of value for money. However, when compared with full-fledged smartphones in its price range, the 505C is made to look like an overpriced model that is to be avoided at all costs.

Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.

Interesting spec review...

(2 years ago)

the specs indicate that the capacity MicroSD card is 16 GB. I use a 32 GB MicroSD and it works just dandy. Otherwise I believe it is the perfect 'starter phone' for those who do not want or need all the perks of advanced smartphone technology.

This new lG 505C Lemon does not work. No bars in my home, I have to walk up a hill to test it out and get only one bar, that also includes large towns near me like Doylestown and New Hope. Cannot receive or answer a call. Missed calls, that I cannot answer does not show up on screen Cannot access my micro sd photos or music, have tried both my micro sd loaded with graphics. The battery does not hold a charge with the few phone calls I made outdoors or tried to use for photos. It has been charged daily just to make test calls to my husbands trac cell phone. Tracfone is non reponsive, sent me this peice of crap at $90 pluss shipp. Phone no bars, no reception, cant answer. Worst cell phone ecperience of my life. I wrote, emailed and faxed Tracfone, the got referred to Brightpoint reverse logistics. Also I tweeted them multiple times. No reviews becasue you cant even get a call or activate it from your home, since the battery is crap and no bars for reception. Mytriple minutes are almost used up with just test calls. Most of the calls I made out were test calls to my husband from both a home land line and his cell. The list goes on and my patience wore out, My husband Carlos, who also speakes Spanish, spent many hours and days trying to correct the situation over the last 2 weeks. He input multiple codes that did not take, given by outsourced customer from all over the World. I'm relentless and need a phone for emergencies and other necessary communication. Since I don't chat my usage is minimal. Will put this on Utube as I am now recording all the grief tracfone has put me thru, and no solutions or refunds.The sent me the phone but now they want me to go to the expense and more torture, of sending it to another company without any compensation. Dont buy this phone, LG should be informed there is no quality control.
