I've had this phone for a week now. I'm really glad I bought it. The look & feel is very different from the phones I have used earlier. The navigation is user friendly. The camera is excellent.
the downside is, there is no cover for the lens, although you are ok as long as you dont keep the phone on rough serfaces. you dont get a pouch and the stylus can be a nuisance at times.
but I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
it's not loud like other phones but i used to listen to songs using headphones and it is excellent,, i have a micro SD card 4GB and it works normally but i did not try the 8GB ,,, why viewty's memory card specifications is defined up to 2GB only???!!
I brought this handset 3 weeks ago before an interstate trip in order to use the 5MP camera and i was very impressed! I brought the phone outright for a fantastic price and have been very happy with it so far. I used the handset for internet access and email which has been good (and battery life is good considering) the camera is great, loudspeaker isnt the best but is good enough, text messaging is EASIER then a standard phone in my opinion. The only thing i could say could be better is the scrolling option. Sometimes i accidently go into a submenu instead of scrolling down because you have to press the screen and slide...other than that..very happy!!
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2008Is it hard to text with? And can you only use the qwerty keypad or can you use normal buttons ... moreVery easy to text with, You dont have to use the qwerty keyboard. Touch screen much better to use than my S/E K850i
Had the Viewty for 2 weeks now and like the phone. Had no problems with the battery lasting as good as any phone I have had.
Dont like the navigation control around the camera lens, also the screen is difficult to view in any sort of bright light.Had the Sony K850i & it has gone back. Viewty much better & better photos.
Is it hard to text with? And can you only use the qwerty keypad or can you use normal buttons which you would usually text with?
Man, of course the omnia is a better phone, the viewty is almost a year old... and the omnia is also the double the price..
Aight, I got the phone about 3 weeks ago, and LOVE it. I had my doubts because of the reportedly bad battery life and I had major doubts about the virtual qwerty as I am a HEAVY texter. I send about 3000 texts a month so this was important to me. The keyboard is hard to get used to and I hated it for the first couple days but once you get used to it, it is extremely useful. BUT you won't be able to text without looking so if u wanna do that, good luck. (At least this is without haptics). Also, haptics can not be turned on with vibrate on (or at least I havn't been able to). The camera is excellent. I took it to Vegas and Banff and came back with amazing quality pictures. The battery life on my phone is also excellent, lasts about 3 days with heavy use (and turned off an night).
I use this site a lot for reviews when deciding to purchase a new phone, so I thought id contribute.
can u keep da songs u haf in da moby as ur ringtones in ku990? n aslo in ke990??
Lg viewty is really an advanced phone. The only thing they have left is large memory lets say 8gb or more and screen should have more colors in terms of millions.
I had the LG Viewty for over a month now and it has been an good phone. The only problem I had before is when I downloaded some pictures on the external memory and added it to my contact images, it seemed to slow down when I make a phone calls. Then, I just saved the pictures to the internal memory and added it to my contact images and I didn't have any slow down as far as making contacts anymore.
Hmm got this phone for 1 mth already... seems like my talk time was very short though... it's like 20 mins and my phone's flat when i started off at 3 bars... it is normal?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970You should go for the LG Viewty. It is so more attractive than the Samsung F480 (Tocco)
I am getting this phone and I read all the information and it is better than the Samsung F480 (Tocco)
Ive had this phone for 3days now and adore it!! Text messaging is a breeze as i always use and love predictive text! Its quick and very responsive with every touch. Battery life so far is good! I charged it 1st charge for 12hours and after two very full days of useage its only dropped one bar!
I read all the reviews good and bad and really was worried about getting this phone but im so glad i did!
Its unique! And on a plus i dont need to use the stylus cos i have long fingernails :o)
If your not sure about this phone i say "get it" !!! Am very happy!
no it doesnt support gps systems unfortunately but i do love the phone. camera is excellent and the editing you can do is second to none, love slowing stuff down
