LG KU990 Viewty review: Eyes wide open


The LG KU990 Viewty is a true powerhouse packing a mass of high-tech goodies under its hood: the impressive 3" touchscreen display with 240 x 400 pixels resolution, the HSDPA 3.6 Mbps capability, the stereo Bluetooth and the highly intriguing...

No hot-swap memory card capabilityHaving stylus as a dongle is an inconvenient solutionFile management slows once the memory card starts filling upOperating the zooming jog wheel gets in the way of the lens

Yet, as we managed to find out, it's a highly sophisticated device, that's quick to impress and certainly deserves attention

LG Viewty Test


LG KU990 Viewty : Unsere Kollegen von LetsGoMobile testeten das LG Viewty. LetsGoMobile meint: Digitalkameras in Mobiltelefonen sind keine Seltenheit mehr. Anders sieht es aus, wenn eine 5 Megapixel Digitalkamera in ein Mobiltelefon integriert wird....

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


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...

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 -


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.

The LG KU990 Viewty sports a 5-megapixel camera with Xenon flash, 3" LCD display, HSDPA high-speed connectivity, microSD expansion slot support up to 2GB, stereo Bluetooth, USB 2.0 and FM radio.

LG Viewty (KU990)


5Mp camera with plenty of modes and features ; large, responsive touch-screen ; innovative software tools

Jog wheel takes some getting used too, unable to upload MP3s to Muvee Studio

The Viewty KU990 will suit anyone who wants to combine their camera and mobile phone into one product. From picture resolution to call quality, it performs its two primary functions with stunning proficiency. Highly recommended.
