Our review unit comes in a neatly packed box and sports a metallic grey finish with a mirror rim at the front. The phone itself feels very light and that translates into a slightly plasticky and toy-like feeling. The large 3-inch display supports a resolution of 240×400. This is slightly better than QVGA (240 x 320). Above the display is a front facing camera for video calls and self-portraits, while below it are three backlit buttons – Call (green), Multitasking (white) and End call/Power (red).
LG kept the top and bottom of the Renoir KC910 clean with no connectors or buttons unlike some of its competitors. On the left is a unique connector to connect to the earphones or power and a microSD expansion slot that supports flash memory up to 8GBs. You will need to use this slot as the phone only comes with 100MB built-in memory. The 8-megapixel digital camera will make short work of 100MB of storage.
The righthand side holds the volume control, keypad lock/anti-shake and the camera mode quick access buttons.
The 8-megapixel camera with xenon flash is at the rear of the Renoir KC910. Unfortunately, the lens cover did not automatically open when we accessed the phone’s camera mode. You have to manually slide open the lens cover in order to use the camera.
The rear cover can be easily removed by pressing the release button at the top, which reveals the battery compartment for the 3.7V 1000mAh Lithium-ion battery, and the SIM card slot just above it. The battery pack needs to be removed in order to insert or remove the SIM card. This will be annoying if you change SIM Cards often.
