Classic feature phones have stood the test of time and have endured the smartphone revolution very gracefully. Smartphones might have a lot of enviable features but feature phones have proved time and again that they are durable beyond measure and are so light on the pocket that you won’t even feel the pinch.

LG scores with the A290, a smart-looking candy bar shaped phone which supports three GSM SIMs comes with triple standby as well which is extremely convenient especially if you use more than one network frequently. The phone comes with an alphanumeric keypad which is very easy to use and it runs on Java as well.

The phone comes with a 2.2 inch TFT LCD QCIF screen which has a resolution of 176 x 220 pixels and a color depth of 262K. The LG A290 comes with a 1.3 megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom which is handy and supports video recording at 15 frames per second as well. The device also has a variety of nifty features like multishot mode, color effects and auto exposure among others that can help you spruce up your photos.

Design and Connectivity

With dimensions of 51 x 113.5 x 13 mm and weighing a mere 93 g, the LG A290 cashes in on simplistic minimalism. With a 3.5 mm audio jack, It fits right into your pocket and is extremely enduring as well. Enjoy internet on your LG handset with GPRS connectivity on the pre-installed Opera Mini 4 browser. Use the WAP on the phone to check your email and transfer data using either the USB or the bluetooth options which are both safe and convenient. 

Storage and Battery

The phone from LG is powered by a 1500 mAh Li-Ion battery which is long lasting and can give you up to 15 hours of talk time on any 2G network. This device comes with an inbuilt memory of 18.9 MB which can be extended for your music and media needs up to 2 GB with a simple microSD card.

Additional Features

Listen to your favorite tracks on the LG A290 which can play both MP3 files and MP4 videos. The phone comes with FM from where you can record your preferred programmes to listen to later. Show off your individuality with a customized MP3 ringtone that tells the world who you are.

Reacjes high but falls short

This cell is selling like a hot item on every shopping site on in India. Have used it for two weeks and here is what I liked and what i didnt,

Pros
-Triple SIM- huge boon for people who roam or have different sim cards for different purposes for example one sim for cheap local calling/one for cheap STD/one for other use.
-Nice shape-loved the back metal finish, though it picks scratches if not kept well.
-Sound packs a punch- loud and clear
-One button network switch-awesome feature never seen on any cell before
-Decent torch

-Nice shape-loved the back metal finish, though it picks scratches if not kept well.
-Sound packs a punch- loud and clear
-One button network switch-awesome feature never seen on any cell before
-Decent torch
-3.5mm audio jack
-micro usb charging point which is really a boon.

Cons-
-Light but not sturdy
-Cant display images above 1mb
-Poor user interface - needs lots of polishing
-GPRS poor and super slow
-outdated features, needs a revamp
-need to add each music track individually to create a playlist its such a pain

Conclusion- Marvel idea with pitfalls, Proud to own this cell, versatile 3SIM which is only branded 3 sim cell in India, rest chinese. Decent sound and easy sim switch make it worthy of having as a second phone, first being a high end model (in my case Xperia J for my 3G,camera and multimedia needs)

I recommend this but buy only for 3 SIM cards, worth the money.

Best tripple sim mobile in india

My brother is using this mobile from last two years. I am the one who gifted it to him. He wanted a mobile with best battery and best call logs as he will be keep on making business calls. He is into travels, real estate and other businesses that demands more calls. He just asked that he wanted tripple sim with best battery and with best call logs. I found this one as best though i couldn't judge it is awesome at that time.

I found this one as best though i couldn't judge it is awesome at that time.

Now my brother tells me that he will use it till it die completely as he may not get this kind of phone in future.

He had everything that he wanted in this mobile. call recording, mp3 songs support, FM and torch, bluetooth. best battery(comes for 3 days for him). what else? All things that are must.

For a normal user, I am sure it can give battery upto 5 days..

No negatives found with the expectations we had. We never wanted it to be used for internet purpose. For that we use other devices anyway. For call making and call tracking, contacts storing and all other minimum needs it is "awesome phone".

I never write review. I am so happy with this mobile. I would have used 10 mobiles till now from basic to top end phones. But this one impressed me a lot with its performance with the expectations we had.

If you want tripple sim phone for making calls mostly, you don't have any mobile that can beat this mobile.
