Read the full LG GC900 Viewty Smart review

All told, then, the LG Viewty Smart GC900 is a difficult beast to pin down. Its camera isn't quite good enough to make it a true camera phone, it lacks a sophisticated enough web browser and email client to even come close to rivalling the iPhone or other smartphones. Its missing headphone jack and lack of hardware controls mean it's not a dedicated music phone, and it's not so cheap (like the Nokia 5800 Express Music) that it makes for a truly low cost alternative to all the other touchscreen phones. Nonetheless, it's an elegant, easy to use all rounder available at a decent price.

Viewty Smart?





Someone in the LG marketing department needs to be shot because they are a f-ing idiot. Sounds like an Engrish kids toy from Frisher Price.

Very strange review. For example, you declared that a strong feature on the phone, the camera, as diappointing because it compared poorly with a real camera. Remember this is a phone, and a 12mm thick one. Your whole "review" or description of the camera was done in one sentence. There was no mention of its unique or special features like manual/auto focus, secondary camera for face-to-face talks, face detection, smile detection, night mode, ISO1600 setting, panarama shots (stiching 3 photos together, on-board photo editing functions, DVD quality video recording, slow motion video, ... ... It is hard for me to see what your comments and opinions are based on, given the limited details of tests performed and your methodology. Thank you.
