For all the original LG Shine’s magpie-attracting sheen and fashion phone sparkle, whenever we get one out in the pub we can’t help thinking those skinheads at the bar are mentally giving us a good kicking for our ‘poncey’ mobile.But hitting the shops at the end of the month is an altogether more macho speechtool – the gunmetal, titanium black Shine (pictured).Sadly the new understated paintjob doesn’t hide any updates, the insides are identical to the glittering silver Shine that adorns handbags and the trendy pockets of fashionistas the world over.
