They're almost evenly matched -- with Samsung Star Wifi just having a bit longer uptime and tad more sizable internal memory.

But for me, it all comes down to design identity and form factor. And looking at the two, I favor LG Cookie Wifi. But that's just me. :)

How about you? Which one do you think is better?

  2. you should have used lgkm555e, there is no difference in the price, and 3g pushmail, and other features are also avalable. i have read the same review from gsm arena and the only plus points of the samsung wifi is its battery time.

    i still think that the L is better, i.e., aesthetically and feature-wise.

  3. is that true that LG KM555 is only 7.8K?

  4. i was just curious if the LG cookie wifi has downloadable and changeable themes and widgets? and can you customize it with many widgets in one screen? :D and lastly, does LG have that part where you can attach the phone to a lanyard and etc? haha.
