Summary: "Battery life is extremely flippant and erratic. Can sometimes last for 5 days, then run out every day, even when you maintain same level of usage. Camera software is awful, compresses images massively resulting in noise, artifacts, nowhere near even 3.2mp quality (pics come out better on old K800i). Firmware has been sorely needed for a year but LG don't provide any support whatsoever.
Summary: When buying this phone I made a key mistake. I was amazing by the slow motion video recording, the 5 mp camera, the slim touch screen body, and all the other features it offered. I was betting that because the phone was a quad band phone it would pick up signals around my house. Unfortunately that was not the case and after a weeks usage I believe I had 1 bar for about 10 seconds. My other phone consistently has great coverage and never drops calls.
Pros: the slow-motion video recording is fun, and it looks really nice.
Cons: it gets really bad reception everywhere i go, the touchscreen is not sensitive enough, texting definately takes some getting used to, and i was disapointed with the camera. I've had 2 MP phones that can take better pictures than the viewty.
Excerpt: The touch screen also is not very senistive which can be a pain at times if you are not used to using this phone. The camera is great and was great until I dropped it ONCE and it broke. One more thing to add it has a video feature of slow motion and still to this day do not see why anyone would want this feature. Anyone out there who has this phone or wanting it I would advise you to stay away. A thumbs down for the Viewty .
LG KU990 Viewty: Cost Matters , but not at the cost of....

Summary: __________ Introduction __________ This was the first LG phone i had used and it curbed a bad impression of LG as a mobile manufacturer. I bought this phone for 55 Pounds off from eBay , the main factor i considered while buying this phone was the low price tag. I did not go looking for reviews before buying it , and ordered it after glancing through the spec sheet.
Excerpt: "A few years back i got my hands on one of these phones by contract from network 3. At first i thought it was'nt a bad phone, although the camera was a let down and the sound from the ear piece was muffled and very low whilst on a call, but then a few months later i started to notice that the touch screen was not functioning properly and that the screen would keep freezing as i went through the menus, this became very annouying, not only that but i ...
Pros: Light and slim, looks good, easy to use
Cons: poor sound, freezing issues, touch screen response not good, short battery life
Summary: PROS: The phone looks very stylish with its metallic silver outer case and simple design. It's very sturdy, I've dropped mine a few times by accident and it still works fine with minimum scratches. The screen is large and the display is very clear. The menu is very easy to use and it's straight-forward to find what you are looking for among the menus. Takes photos and videos of a very good quality.
Pros: Stylish, good photos and videos, durable
Cons: Unlocks too easily, button placement not very well thought out
Summary: I had thos phone along side my k800i, i can honestly say in the beginning it was the better phone. But after a few months of use it began to fail in several ways untill it became un-useable. First off, the touchscreen worked well when it did work, the only problem i had with it was that you had to be very precise. My thumbs arent the thinest so i found it hard texting on this phone.
Pros: Good camera,good video, large screen, good games, easy to use
Cons: Too many problems with the software and the components, screen breaks etc
