Using the successful touch sensitive technology used on the LG Chocolate KG800 (as the world's first on a mobile phone) the KG810 incorporates touch sensitive music controls on the exterior of the handset. These buttons glow red when active and will not activate by standard items touching them. With no physical buttons to clutter the exterior of the phone the KG810, at just 14.6mm thick, truly is a slender phone. Open the handset and you will discover a large, vibrant colour screen with an easy to use keypad.
The phone incorporates an interior color screen with 262,000 colours and a resolution of 176 x 220 pixels, as well as an external screen with a 96 x 96-pixel resolution and 65,000 colors. Use the internal or external screen as a viewfinder for the 1.3 megapixel camera. It supports Photo ID, so photos of contacts will appear on the screen as soon as they call, and you can customise your display with photos, wallpaper or Flash Lite based files.
The KG810's 1.3-megapixel digital camera features a flash, a 4x digital zoom, a multi shot mode, and a photo album feature. The camera also offers up to one-hour of video capture. When it's time for music, the Chocolate boasts a built-in music player with stereo speakers and an equalizer, offering MP3 and WMA playback, a feature which lets you keep your music playing in the background during a call. You can also take advantage of the Chocolate's Bluetooth wireless headset capability, allowing you to hook up a pair of Bluetooth stereo headphones.
Connect the KG810 to a PC using the supplied USB cable and it will become a mass storage device. Drag and drop files such as music, photos, videos and more straight to the phone and you can carry them with you wherever you go. The KG810 has 128 MB of internal memory and no software is required for the PC--simply plug and play. Additionally, while the phone is connected to your PC, it will also charge too. Multimedia files are stored within the phone's memory; it does not include an expansion slot.
The KG810 boasts powerful calling functions, such as speaker independent voice dialing, which makes it easy to call contacts by simply saying their names. No prior voice training is required and you can even speak individual digits to the phone for quick dialing of numbers you know by heart.

When used in combination with the KG810's built-in camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging fun. The built in MMS editor allows the user to create convenient messaging templates for fast MMS messages, as well as the ability to create SMS messaging templates. And to make messaging even easier on the KG800, the phone comes stock with built-in T9 text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets--a definite plus for mobile email and text messaging users.
