LG Cookie Fresh GS290 Review

Posted on 02 April 2010

After the success of the original LG Cookie, LG Cookie Fresh GS290 has entered the newly-formed Cookie family to continue the chain.

The Cookie Fresh has some of the newer features found on the Cookie Plus, but lacks others that were initially found on the original. In a nut shell, the 3MP camera that was present on the first Cookie has been replaced with a weaker 2MP one. The phone lacks 3G, but supports a 3.5mm jack. But it could be a good option for those who enjoy listening to music, while on the move, and want to pay as little as possible.


The LG Cookie Fresh GS290 is the ultimate, affordable touchscreen phone. Although is does not have a breathtaking appearance, but it’s not bad either. The phone has smooth curves, making it easy to hold in the hand.

The screen, which measures around 3 inches has a resolution of 240×400 pixels. However, it does have a lot of pixelization, making its display quality just satisfactory. Together with the 3.5mm, the Cookie Fresh also has a standard microUSB port for PC connection and charging.

Overall, the LG Cookie Fresh GS290 is exactly how a touchscreen phone in this price range should be, not very attractive, but still good enough to look at, hold and use.

Interface and Functionality

The phone supports three home screen pages. One for widgets, next one for favorite contacts, and the last one for Live Square. However, like all other LG phones with this interface, the LG Cookie Fresh GS290 does suffer from some lag.

The 2-megapixel camera offers many different options, such as white balance, night mode, effects, timer and exposure. You can also record video in QVGA resolution.

The LG Cookie Fresh GS290 is going to be a nice and decent, affordable touchscreen phone.

  1. My lovely new LG Cookie no longer would seem as interesting because somebody looks to have been in a position to hack into my mobile phone and access the world wide web even though I’m asleep. I bought it through the O2 shop and have an O2 sim card. O2 aren’t at all valuable but more than £42 worth of credit continues to be sucked out of my pre-paid account. Any tips about exactly where I can locate out ways to solve this difficulty?

    great phone. easy to use, manuevering around my new lg prime is really great. fits well in my pocket and feels great to hold. great unlocked gsm phones. they are great for business and emailing and wifi helps me keep in touch with my clients. much better than my old unlocked blackberry phones. games are great and keep my family and daughter busy. also got our htc unlock codes and cell phone unlocking for free! got our last couple prime’s at unlockthatphone.com 2 thumbs up

    do you happen to use the facebook or weather widget? because those require internet data to use, so if you are using them, that could explain the disappearance of your credit.
