So there you have it, the LG Prada, is it a winner or not?
Well, it depends what you're looking for in a phone. It lacks a lot of functionality, but so does the iPhone. Do people care? Well, again, it depends what you're using your phone for. It will work great as a stylish and hip phone for consumers interested in an easy to use phone with impressive quality screen and fancy OS. For consumers looking for the ability to quickly type up business messages or those looking for high-speed web surfing, it fails here with no 3G support, just EDGE (2.75G) which is much slower.
However, there's one big flaw apart from the issues mentioned in the review and that is the insanely high price LG expects you to pay for the Prada, as it's retailing for no less than $675 USD, which is just too much for what it is unfortunately.
You get a funky new phone complete with Prada logos and some features, which are mildly impressive, but asking price has surely got to make it a hard sell for what you get when all is said and done.
