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.
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: 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.
