It seems 5MP camphones are ten a penny these days. And the latest to land on my desk is LG’s new offering, the KC550. It’s not quite the touchscreen big seller that is the Viewty, but with the same sensor round the back, and classic camera styling, it’s a worthy mid–range effort.It’s a slider, and feels hefty enough when you first take it out of the box. Like other LG phones though, you can’t help but think it’s a little bit too plasticky.Pictures do look great though, and it’s certainly worth a pop if you want your phone to purely focus on snaps.Still, it may have come to late to be able to compete with the 8MP toting Sony Ericsson Cybershot C905.
