I was just wondering, i get that this phone's screen switches of when making calls but if it does that how would 1 be able to make conference calls?
how fast is the phone in browsing pictures and videos? is it like the SE phones?
Ive never had an LG, ive alwasy been stuck to NOkia, Samsung or Sony Ericsons however i notice they all have problems, Nokias crash and the phone features are all the same, Samsungs are rather basic and Sony Ericsons try to cram that much on they also crash. The LG viewty however is far from them, its sleek, stylish, very reliable, good battery life, great 5mp camera and video calling is clear as well, the features are great and dont include loads of silly software like design your own ring tone that sound poop. lol It comes with Google earth on witch i find useful on a phone as its basically a map, it would be good if sat nav was on however you can download it. it has 3 different imput methods to text, normal key, a full on screen touch qwerty keyboard, you can even write it on the screen. And one amazingly easy thing i found is the PC software it comes with, so easy to use, not like Sony Ericsons, if i want to use it was a modem i didnt have to configure it with the network, download anything, i simply clicked a button and within 5seconds i had connected. the built in internet on the phone is fast and like the I-phone you can rotate the view. Mobile TV streaming is very quick with no delay on immage to sound. Brillant phone and the best ive had so far.
Really best camera phone i have ever seen, Even much better camera then Nokia N95,
I agree with you, the only things I would of wished for were a lense cover protector, a stylus holder and not major but wifi
Oh and weres all the screensavers and themes !!!
Frankly, this phone is FEATURE-packed (missing only GPS and WiFi) .. on top of that, it is NOT a Windows Mobile one (meaning the batteries last for more than 2-3 days, at least at the time of purchase, while using it nearly every day .. and that the phone's responsive enough !!), it has Java apps & games (means I can develop custom thingies on top of it, just like my now retired Palm).
And add into that the price I paid for it (€59, that is about $90, attached to a 2-hour subscription with unlimited DAILY landlines calls...), and its a dream come true, as I'm about to kickstart my business !!!
However, this dream could have been better, as its design is somewhat lacking, with :
- no customisation of the front line icons (Calendar is 3 clicks away, & adding an appointment is 5-clicks more longer ..)
- a camera lens with ABSOLUTELY no protection
- no additional batteries or video cable on sale at the time, anywhere apart from chinese websites
- some kind of delay (LG didnt expect to sell THAT much phones ... but I got lucky : last week, mine came)
- LG customer support emails & Web site offer NO TECH INFOs ... one has to have some live demo at a PHYSICAL store :
Im very happy with the camera and Im used to using a 6megapixel digital camera, but maybe thats just my opinion, I think the KS20 is great coz of windows and wifi but other than that its not much different to the viewty. One thing for sure is that I took a risk buying the viewty as im used to buying sony walkman phones and I was waiting for the W960I to be released but got bored, but Im happy with my decison.I have films on my viewty and the quality is great (:
cbchick-yea, i feel u. I got it for the same feature, but i am lil disappointed with the 5mp cam though. its about as good as the 3mp or cam on iphone. in my opinion. thats why i was willin to give up the cam =). $700 is a lot for another one, considerin u and i paid a load for viewty! maybe next christmas =), or just flash my phone til i get an offer.
TO Ti teo
I have the viewty and love it, Im considering the KS20 however I love the camera/video and there features on the viewty ! so dunno if il bother (:
I got a viewty since Christmas, I couldnt wait for the ks20, but anybody who owns viewty and thinkin about buyin the ks20? I guess i'm bored, and if it has wifi it be much better.Dang, wonder if i can sell it
Yes u can use a standard headphone with it. U swap headsets using d supplied head set attachment, this way u only need 1 port- how stylish is that. Listen music, d radio and make calls using ur own headset, pretty cool.
@PSOLORD and d.
I was playing around with the themes and i realized that the fish theme uses up the battery quicker than all the others because of the massive amount of memory it uses. 4 best results use d black theme- and u well see it lasts suprisingly long(5 days+).
what type of jack is on this phone for headphones etc? will it take regular headphones for listening to music?
The one who says that there is a problem with the battery life IS A LIAR!!! I've bought this phone, recharged it and it last 6 days. 20 min HSDPA downloads, cca 20min video in VGA, abaut 20 pics in 5Mpx, and abaut 50min calls and 30 SMS. Is that good or what!!!??? I was an SE fan but I've change my mind since I've turned on the video player on Viewty. Payed it 350 euros here in Croatia with 1year garante and it's worth every lipa (cents) I gaved. God bless you all
i likey this phone hehe its by far the best looking of all in its class and its so easy to use a must have everyone get this phone :D
please tell me about operating system LG ku990 and LG KU990 has Wi-Fi wireless?
