LG Compact Pebble Design Smart Minibeam Projector PW800

 

Basically a portable HDTV that uses a projector for its display, the LG Compact Pebble Design Smart Minibeam Projector PW800 offers the usual HDMI and VGA ports, plus easy wireless connectivity to mobile devices.

Compact. Built-in TV tuner. Supports Miracast and WiDi for easy wireless mirroring of cell-phone, tablet, and PC screens

No zoom. Low brightness limits useful image size, particularly in rooms with ambient light. No 3D support for video sources. Showed rainbow artifacts in testing

The obvious way to think of the LG Compact Pebble Design Smart Minibeam Projector PW800 ($599.99) is as a projector with a built-in TV tuner. But that would be missing the point. Think of it instead as a big-screen 720p HDTV that uses a projector as...

LG Viewty Smart is here!

 

All you LG fans who have been looking forward to the Viewty Smart so eagerly are not going to be displeased with this one. It has a stunning 8 MP camera, records videos in DVD quality and plays DivX videos as well! Other features include a 3” display...

LG Viewty Smart

 

8-megapixel camera, outstanding display with rich colour, S-Class UI is colourful and engaging, Dolby Mobile and DivX support, 7.2Mbps HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS

S-Class UI is a little sluggish, LG's Application Store isn't compatible, keystroke lag during text-input, camera interface is slow to navigate, no 3.5mm headphone jack

LG's Viewty Smart is a good camera phone and the S-Class UI is rich and engaging but there are plenty of faults. The interface is sluggish, there is no 3.5mm headphone jack and the included mobile browser is poor.

LG CG900 Viewty Smart - First Look - Pocket-lint

 

LG sold 7 million Viewty handsets, so they probably have an idea of how many Viewty Smarts they want to shift, as it steps in as a direct replacement of

S-Class UI, plenty of camera options

No HD video capture, no 3.5mm jack

Overall first impressions are pretty good. Packing in the essential specs of Wi-Fi, HSDPA, GPS, Bluetooth, the Viewty Smart is a verifiable data fiend, perhaps only restrained by that operating system, which, whilst glossy and easy to use, perhaps...

LG Viewty Smart review

 

The Viewty brand is an evolution of the original Viewty, launched back in 2007. The design of the LG Viewty Smart mobile phone is comparable to the iPhone 3GS, though its slightly smaller and the edges are sharp and striking rather than round.

LG's Viewty Smart is a good camera phone and the S-Class UI is rich and engaging but there are plenty of faults. The interface is sluggish, there is no 3.5mm headphone jack and the included mobile browser is poor.

LG Viewty Smart

 

It's called the Viewty Smart, but it's definitely not a smartphone. Aside from the decent camera, there's very little to recommend this high-priced mobile.

Decent 8-megapixel camera ; Good basic functionality ; Strong battery life

S-Class UI is not easy to use ; Limited automated set-up ; Poor online experience

The Viewty Smart epitomises the growing chasm between smartphones and standard mobiles, two categories of phones recognisable by how they handle the online experience. The LG Viewty Smart is the latter; it handles the basics well and the 8-megapixel...

LG Viewty Smart review

 

The LG Viewty Smart is the successor to the LG Viewty, which was introduced about two years ago. Besides the upgrade from 5.0 to 8.0 megapixels and a completely new operation system, this new LG camera phone features a built-in GPS antenna, FM radio,...

LG Viewty Smart mobile phone

 

You either like a phone interface or you don't. It's a snap decision - and can be almost emotional. I like what LG does. I have been a fan since I was given an LG Renoir to test, and I didn't want to give it back. The last LG to grace the Wired office...
