LG Viewty Smart GC900 Review: In Depth

Recombu
9 March 2010
  • 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? What we like The Viewty Smart's camera is easy to use and offers a wide range of features. You can switch between normal and macro mode easily, adjust white balance for different lighting conditions and set the camera to take a burst of shots.

LG GC900 Viewty Smart Mobile Phone

Tech2
1 February 2010
  • Excerpt: There must be just a handful of the mobile using population that’s interested in a mobile phone purely for its base purposes viz. making and taking calls and or messages. It’s got to have at least a few fun features that make it enticing and let’s not forget looks; it’s got to have some appeal in the looks department. LG has always managed to offer a pretty neat packaging in this sense.

  • Conclusion: The Viewty Smart feels slightly impotent. Its power is obvious, and the design is an absolute beauty. If it could be extended with new apps and software, we’d proclaim it a must-own. Without them, it’s one strictly recommended for photo-obsessives...
  • Pros: The LG Viewty Smart’s camera software is far and away the most impressive on the market. Intelligent Shot mode lets the phone analyse the scene in front of it, balancing focus, aperture, shutter speed and white balance to give good results in almost all conditions. The only downside is a slight delay while the phone does its calculations, but the increased quality is immediately obvious and a fair trade-off. LG has also given the Viewty Smart face detection technology...
  • Cons: However, once you’ve torn yourself away from the LG Viewty Smart’s camera function, the phone becomes less impressive. Sure, there’s the latest S-Class interface, which makes customising home screens and whizzing between functions a breeze, but the lack of 3rd party apps is immediately obvious.

Review: LG Viewty Smart GC900 Part 3

GadgetLite
10 August 2009
  • 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 onboard memory plus support for up to 32 GB worth of external memory, Though there are just a few minor issues with the Viewty Smart’s multimedia management function, its eight mega...
  • 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 Android phones, LG phones still lags behind

LG Viewty Smart phone review

Techworld
24 July 2009
  • Summary: 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

LG Viewty Smart review

PC Advisor
25 January 2010
  • Summary: Boasting an 8Mp camera with an LED flash and Schneider-Kreuznach lens, LG's Viewty Smart is the second mobile phone to feature LG's S-Class 3D user interface, first seen on the LG Arena. Don't be fooled by the name though, as this isn't a smartphone.
