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.
Pros: 8-megapixel camera, outstanding display with rich colour, S-Class UI is colourful and engaging, Dolby Mobile and DivX support, 7.2Mbps HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS
Cons: S-Class UI is a little sluggish, not compatible with LG's Application Store, keystroke lag during text input, camera interface is slow to navigate, no 3.5mm headphone jack
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.
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: Overall the LG GC900 Viewty Smart is a great camera phone that packs in a range of features for mobile snappers. The performance falls short of a regular compact camera, but you can get some respectable images from it, and in terms of imaging, it's certainly worthy of consideration.
Pros: Good camera performance, good video, S-Class UI
Cons: Possible lack of application support, no 3.5mm jack

Excerpt: Der Fotospezialist in diesem Quartett kommt eindeutig von LG und hört auf den Namen GC900 Viewty Smart. Das 469 Euro teure UMTS-Modell tritt die Nachfolge des KU990 Viewty an (hier zu dessen Dauertest).
