Pros: Improved exterior design compared to many previous LG phones (for example, easier to access microSD card slot), S-Class (3D Cube) user interface connects well with the Viewty Smart’s range of functions, especially connectivities and continues to be an easy to use platform, A fair 1.5 GB of onboar...
Cons: Camera button doesn’t start up the camera (or video camera) when pressed in the home screen, Browser does not support flash, Video player was slightly disappointing as it only supported a limited range of video file formats, For those who fancy running applications like those on iPhones and Andro...
Excerpt: The LG Viewty Smart GC900 is the LG Viewty's successor. Boasting an 8-megapixel camera and a 3-inch touchscreen, the Viewty Smart certainly looks better than its predecessor but does it deliver more? There's a slow-motion video mode, similar to the original Viewty's, that we found fun to use.
Conclusion: It’s unfair to compare mid-range devices such as this with the high-end, high-spec lot, but its testament to the quality of the Viewty Smart that we try to. A nice improvement, and a great mid-range price for a decent handset.
Summary: The LG Viewty Smart is the slimmest eight-megapixel camera phone on the market and despite being made predominantly from plastic, sports a high-end look. The S-Class interface is the slickest we’ve seen so far from LG, and the touch-screen is also the most responsive.
Pros: Eight-megapixel camera with ?smart? features that auto-adjust settings for a huge range of light environments.
Cons: Not able to download third-party apps from dedicated market, unlike comparable handsets.
Summary: With help of the built-in GPS antenna, combined with Google Maps, routes can be planned. The operation system is perfect for multimedia; in particular the special multimedia home screen provides an extraordinary experience.
Excerpt: LG's Viewty Smart follows on from the popular Viewty, with an 8-megapixel camera and a high-resolution 800x480 touchscreen. It uses the same underlying interface as LG's GT505, but with four main screens that you can personalise with apps, widgets, contacts and photos.
Excerpt: LG's original Viewty - the KU990 - was reviewed in June 2008 in Digital Photo magazine and 18 momths later its replacement - the Viewty Smart GC900 - is here. The Viewty 2 will appeal to phone users looking for an upgrade, with its impressive slimline styling and wide range of features.
Conclusion: The LG Viewty Smart is undoubtedly one of the best (and lightest) phones out there if you are serious about taking good photos with it, that part of it is very well done by LG. But unfortunately there’s not a lot to back that up, yes the media player is good, and yes you can’t argue with any of the...
Excerpt: You either like a phone interface or you don’t. It’s a snap decision. I like what LG does, and I have done 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 was the Arena , which also won plaudits.
