LG Viewty (KU990)

 

With auto-focus, image stabilisation and settings galore the 5-megapixel camera should take better, sharper photos. As a phone and a mobile Web browser the Viewty is a strong performer.

Vibrating touchscreen, HSDPA data speeds and great browser, Plethora of camera features and settings

Disappointing camera performance, Restrictive video playback, No 3.5mm headphone input

LG KU990 Viewty review: Eyes wide open

LG KU990 Viewty Review

 

Last year, the handset market experienced the beginning of a new trend which can be tagged as "the race for 5 (Megapixel)". The main handset makers, ranked top 5 for their sales profit, namely Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Samsung and LG engaged in a battle...

Besides the high quality camera and amazing Flash UI, I believe that a good point is the fact that LG learns from its previous failures (see KG920) and takes into consideration every feedback that it gets from the users. That will surely make future...

Unfortunately, I would've expected more from the music part of the phone and was thinking that maybe an operating system would've improve functionality of the device. Also, battery drains pretty fast when phone is used only for talking. Otherwise I...

Review: LG KU990 Viewty

 

You could think of LG's KU990 Viewty, a device with a huge 3" touchscreen display, as LG's take on an iPhone killer. The phone certainly has the specs for it, including a 5MP auto-focus camera. Read on for the details.

LG KU990 Viewty Review

 

Great looks, a fun UI and ease of use make this a good phone. The touch-screen could have been better, and the jog dial is just bad. At a price of Rs 21,900, it's a good style statement.

LG Viewty KU990 - HardwareZone.com

 

Retailing at S$838, the LG Viewty has the edge over the competition in terms of performance in imaging, video and even in terms of looks and design, even if the user interface takes a little getting used to.
