  • Abstract:  from £00.00 contract Camera phones have come on in leaps and bounds in recent years but I still haven’t yet found one that doesn’t underperform as a camera. LG’s Viewty could best be described as a poor man’s iPhone, with its huge...

  • Large colorful screen, fun slowmotion video, sturdy feel, sleek design
  • Sluggish interface, disappointing web browser, below average call quality, finicky camera
  • The Viewty is a very stylish and fashionable phone, trying to take on Apples mighty iPhone with its large touch-sensitive display and simple form-factor. It builds on these features by including a 5 megapixel camera, 120fps video capture, and HSDPA 3G...

  • Goodlooking but easy to use interface, DivX playback straight out of the box, The best video camcorder on a phone
  • The camera quality is lower than on other 5megapixel phones, Doesn't support highcapaciity memory cards, The music player cannot compete with iPod, The speaker sound could be better
  • So, let’s sum the things up: the Viewty looks well, has all that a modern “touch-phone” needs, form-factor – large, high-quality touch display, decent dimensions, and an eye-catching interface. On the other hand, it offers plenty of multimedia features...

  • Abstract:  Viewty? I can't work out why this phone has that name, or indeed why the name might be applied to any mobile. But then LG doesn't bat an eyelid at using odd names for its handsets. Shine , anyone? If you remember my review of the predecessor to this mobi...
