The Complete Camera Phone
Following the huge success of the LG Mobile Black Label Series Chocolate and Shine, LG has progressed into the high-technology camera phone category with LG Viewty.

Mobile Technology Making Full Internet
For fast and easy information search, LG Viewty comes with HSDPA 3.6 Mbps which allows full Internet browsing capability, the Google package (includes Google Search, e-Blogger, Gmail and Google Maps for mobile handsets), and MSN and Yahoo messenger services. (network dependent)

5 Megapixel Camera Certified By Schneider-Kreuznach
LG Viewty's 5 megapixel camera is capable of taking clearer and more vivid images with its high-resolution capturing technology. The rich and vibrant colours of the photos will look superb anywhere, whether on a wide LCD screen or when developed.

Enjoy Various Docusing techniques
LG Viewty not only includes the conventional auto focus function, but for the first time in camera phone history, it offers a manual function that enables users to focus independently.

Capturing The Best Moments Even In Low Light
Increasing the ISO standard to 800 and including SmartLight technology users can capture better pictures in low light without the artificial glare of the flash.

Taking Steady Pictures With Image Stabiliser & Direct Key
This useful feature enables novice photographers to take steady pictureswithout handshaking and prevents delicate movements when capturing subjects.

Catch Every Detail With High-speed Recording (120 FPS)
This is an ultra high-speed function that can capture the finest detail of any passing moment to be played back in the most vivid and dramatic way.

Discover True Viewing Pleasure With 3 Inch Full Touch Screen
The extra large display panel provides superior visibility when operating its camera or handset functions and it reacts to user's touch by signalling direct contact with vibration.

Freedom Of Expression With Handwriting Recognition & Editing
Handwriting Recognition technology identifies user handwriting on the display surface for easy and convenient composition of text, phone numbers and Internet searching. With the added Editing function, users can freely edit and enhance captured images and re-live the moment by directly drawing or writing on them with their fingertips or with a stylus.

I have just received my Viewty and it is stunning! It's so light! Also thinner than I imagined! The touch screen is sensitive and reacts to your touch with a slight buzz. It came with a special LG stylus and loads of info on the phone, lots of accessories such as charger, headphones, cd disc etc. A very very good phone!

 Fantastic , awesome, incredible...need i go on?

I got this phone on Christmas Eve as a gift. What can i say? Played and better played with it and it is awesome! The look is sleek, the touchscreen incredible and easy to navigate and the camera and video are second to none. I so love my first touchscreen phone, wonder how i ever managed without one, so simple to operate. This is a very user freindly phone that i believe caters for all.

The CAMERA : Last night i took some amazing pictures in the dark. All pictures have been incredibly good so far and anyone who has not had a good experience of this camera simply does not know how to use it properly, usually due to not reading the manual.

VIDEO CAPTURE : I filmed my son whizzing past my house on his bike. I did not expect to see him in such detail and with such clarity. This is the best video rec feature i have seen or used on any phone.

TOUCHSCREEN : Every icon is easy to tap and all menus are easily accessible. A nice vibrate is given off to confirm you have hit the key or icon properly. A joy to use.

THE KEYPAD : Sending texts is a delight. Once you know where the usual command keys are [ie, delete last character] it is very clear and simple to use.

INTERNET : Incredible load up speeds for the pages you view. Fantastic clarity on the 3" screen and can be viewed in portrait or landscape mode. I use Skype through this handset on the 3 network and MSN Messenger and they work very well on this phone.

HANDWRITING RECOGNITION : A bit of a pain at first but after a while i feel it learns your commands much better and i have noticed a vast improvement since yesterday and sent my first text using this feature today. Practice is all it takes.

THE SOFTWARE : Easy to sync with windows [vista incuding] and very easy to operate. I synced with outlook express and it worked a treat. Backed up my contacts and all data to my PC with no problems.

MUSIC PLAYER : Not bad at all. Only loaded about 20 files on so far but playback is effortless and sound quality very good. Would recommend new headphones though, an adaptor for a normal jack is included.

BLUETOOTH : Works with everything i have paired it with. My headset for the car, my PC and my wifes phone all work well. Easy to transfer and recieve files to and from the PC. Excellent !

OTHER FEATURES : Jog wheel on rear [very handy], a stylus but my preference if for the Jog Wheel or to finger scroll pages.

THE CONS : Yes a few small niggles. Nowhere for the stylus to live, no lens cover so a suitable case is needed and there is a genuine lack of accessories out there at the moment for this phone.

Please Please buy this phone. I had my doubts at first but so delighted i own it now. It truly is a quality phone and revolutionary. The Iphone is very humble in comparison and lacks many of the features this phone has. I for one will be very reluctent to go back to a normal handset.

 The wait is over...

I have finally been able to upgrade to this phone on a 3 contract. The demand for this phone was so high that every 3store had waiting lists and the staff kept trying to push me towards a new Sony Ericsson 5mp camera phone, worried that I would go to another network just to get it, but as I see it there is no phone out at the moment which compares to this phone not even the 5 year old technology of the i-phone which doesn't even come close to this phones features. The zoom lense/scroll wheel feature is great and very easy to use, at first I thought it would make it easy to drop the phone while fumbling to scroll down, but after half an hour of use you just use it without having to think about it. Also the touchscreen is amazing, again after half an hour of use I was inputting phone numbers using the hand-writing recognition using one hand while "writing" with my thumb (you get a stylus, but this shows the ease of using the hand-writing recognition feature). Depending on the network you use there are plenty of extra features that could be useful/fun to use like Google maps, YouTube, Google Mail and plenty more. I say "depending on your network" because most networks still haven't clicked on that if the internet usage was reasonably priced then more people would use it, with 3 I get unlimited usage for £5 which enables me to ake full advantage of the extra internet based features, even more so that this phone has HSDPA technology which allows upto 3.6mbps connection speeds, depending on networks available service (3's is 2.8mbps). Just to compare I get 2mbps from my home internet supplier. There are loads more features on this phone that I could go on about which make it a must have phone and I'm sure if you have got as far as looking at it on Play.com then you will have already Googled the LG U990 and read about them for yourselves. Without taking anything away from Play.com if you are due for an upgrade or your contract has finished then I would get this phone on a contract as it is available from Free, but if you are still using Pay-as-you-go or your upgrade is too far away to wait then this would be a definite purchase.

 Excellent Phone

This was my first touch screen phone and was rather hesitant in buying it but thought id give it a go and was rather impressed i have to say, it has haptic response touch screen which means it gives a slight but very noticeable vibration to let you know the keypad has been pressed, the 5mp camera is very good although its equipped with an auto focus the manual focus is fiddly to use as its round the rim of the camera lens but you shouldn't have to use this too often as the auto focus seems well up to the job. As you would expect from a touch screen it attracts fingerprints very easily but this cannot be helped due to the nature of the phone, just as well LG has included a plastic pen if you dont fancy dirtying up your screen!
One of the other very handy items to note on this phone is that it plays DivX films! The pc software in all included, just drag and drop the file or film into the DivX converter once installed on your pc hit 'convert', wait for a bit then either transfer it manually to your memory stick (micro sd) or transfer it via the LG pc suite also included, saves mucking about converting your files to MP4 or 3GP.
All in all a very impressive phone once you get used to using a touch screen!

 Much better then the iPhone

As my title suggest it's better then the iPhone! Why? Because it does so much more than the iPhone!
1: Camera is 5mp unlike the iPhones 2mp
2: Video records, iPhone doesn't (might change in 08)
3: Allows you to send information over Bluetooth suprisingly the iPhone doesn't!
4: Has a touch screen same as the iPhone (however the touch screen is better on the iPhone)
5:And finaly the sound quality! Lg Viewty superb, iPhone probably the worst i have ever heard on a 21st centuary phone!
