Written on: 24/06/2008 by anto2k7utj (2 reviews written)

Good Points
5MP camera is amazing...!!
120 FPS video capture =]
Touch Screen is very responsive..!
Different methods of text input allows very speedy texting
Haptics with changeable vibrations and sounds...!!
Very easy to use UI!
DivX playback so you can watch movies on the go
Really good gaming!
Nice music player!
FM radio
3G network to allow video conferencing, mobile TV
Directly upload movies onto youtube and access to GMAPS so you will never get lost again...!!! :)
Expandable memory up to 2GB so you will never run out of space for your music, picture or video collection!
Jukebox for online music
HSDPA to allow fast internet collection
Web browser is very advanced probably one of the best I have ever came across on a mobile!
Video and Picture editing to allow you to have fun with your collection :-)

Bad Points
No WiFi
Battery life is not the best
Only three themes to choose from
nothing else really only a few stupid things but hey it would be very hard to find a mobile that is perfect and if you do drop me a line :P

General Comments
LG Viewty Review - If you are looking one of the best mobile on the market with a reasonable price tag then this is the phone for you. The camera is second to none and the video capture is unbelievable with the slow motion...!



As already mentioned the battery life is the only fallback, but I have found a SOLUTION. The battery that comes with the phone is only 1000 MAH but there is a newer version at 15000 MAH and can be bought all over the web at as cheap as 99p...!!!!!! Check out the shops on ebay for more info.



People have also mentioned that the touchscreen is not very responsive... Lies..!! I found them the opposite and the haptic vibrations are just a bonus. I go through a lot of phones and have tried out most of the new ones on the market like the n95 and the u900 soul. I have to say that this is the best all-rounder out of the three.



Don't you just hate carrying around too many gizmos for those special occasions, well with this phone that won't be a problem anymore. I would recomend this phone to anyone. Hope that my review proves useful to you...!!

Regards


Anthony

You say to drop you a line if anyone has found a mobile that is perfect, well if you have tried the apple iphone my guess is, you will probably find that as close to perfection as any phone. It will also give you an idea of how touch screen technology should work on a phone. Also i think its a little unfair that they allow "expert" reviews from employees of LG, but hey thats just the way it is i guess. Anyway i'm away to write an "expert" review on socks - cotton ones are so fine, they are just so soft and cottony

<br/>Come on...!
<br/>
<br/>As you said certain phones are for certain people and this phone peronally just ticks all the boxes for me and more.

Sounds very much like this person DOES work for LG! Yes, I do have this phone and would go between both reviews. It's not as good as the 'Expert' reviewer makes out, but not nearly as bad as the other one!
<br/>
<br/>Yes, its a nice phone, has more to give than the iPhone, even the new upgraded version, as it has a 5mp camera, the iPhone only 2mp, and the Viewty does MMS, the iPhone does not-shocking even when the uprgaded iphone still doesn't do MMS.
<br/>
<br/>The iPhone does show the way though for a touch screen as it is more responsive-and I'm not the only one to say that either.
<br/>
<br/>To me it depends on what you want from a phone and at what price. To pay as much for the iPhone I'd want MMS and a better camera-but that where the Viewty comes in. The Viewty's radio is also damn good too-smashing for listening to the footy. Can't comment on the iPhone as I haven't heard it's radio at all.
<br/>
<br/>Personally I think if the N95 has a good radio, I might just go back to that.

Well I have tried the apple I-phone and personally I think it is way over rated..!!! Never really been an apple fan :P
<br/>2mp camera come on...!
<br/>
<br/>The price of the contract is really high,
<br/>some people just don't want to be stuck with it.
<br/>The Lg Viewty has everything and a low price tag at just &pound;179
<br/>
<br/>Go review your cotton socks, I'm sure it'll be so interesting to read *coughs*
