LG GU285 has been priced @ Rs.6,500 INR in India

Our Take:

May be slightly over priced, just compare this with the latest LG GW300 (which doesn’t support 3G though), you’ll get to know that ! The phone does support 3G but don’t expect high speed downloads as it doesn’t support HSDPA.Camera is also a big disappointment should have been  2MP at least, times have changed I’m sure not many people would want to buy a 1.3MP camera phone at such a price these days.

If you want a cheaper branded 3G phone, you may want to have a look at Nokia 2730 Classic 3G which is priced much lower than this model.
