i recently bought this phone and was amazed at all the features, one thing that caught my attention was people talking about the A2DP bluetooth. now as far is i know the KU990 has bluetooth ver. 2.0 but there is nothing about this in the user manual and i currently have no way of testing this. so if there is anyone out there with a KU990 and the means to test the A2DP functionality (ie. bluetooth headphones or speakers) i would be greatly appreciative as i am not in a hurry to buy any of these little extras if they have no hope of working.

bought the phone had it for a day and took it back the phone itself was great something different but the real let down was the camera it was so lifeless in colour need more then a fancy 5.1m camera need the software as well thats why the lens was good on the kodak cameras it was so hard to get this into focus kept going blured had a better 2m phone camera then this what a let down

Image quality depends on quality of CMOS sensor and image processing algorithm not on lenses though it is still required Nokia uses Toshiba CMOS sensor so its image quality is higher don't know about LG's CMOS sensor

It has a Schneider-KREUZNACH world class lens used by kodak professional cameras. I don't think, LG earlier used these lenses in the phone. So, it's gonna be a beauty.

Nokia N95 video records at VGA@30fps
LG- KU990 video records at QVGA@120fps, why not VGA ?
QVGA is be blurry to play on TV or larger screen ( regardless of their frame per second count.

I don't think that it's cam quality can beat Nokia N95 because LG's earlier 5MP phone has poor image quality though i think it might have been improved second human eye cannot differentiate between 30fps and 120fps though it is useful for recording fast moving object like moving car although N95 video will be superior just becoz of VGA resolution good for viewing on computer monitor and 120fps is not HD (full HD means it should record video at 1900x1080 atleast at 30fps which almost impossible for a phone) divx is not some thing new samsung already has f510 and f500 which play divx also almost all symbian and windows mobile can play divx by installing software although LG ku990 looks super cool LG design are awesome

Everyone has their own preference over which is the better camera. That's fine. It's a matter of preference. Let's respect that.

And if anyone has any actual reviews, great! Let's post the link here and share it. No use smearing another person.

Anyway it shouldn't be about the person but the issue. And what we all have in hand now is our happiness of better quality camera phones coming out.

Let's celebrate that.

LG Prada is a piece of junk. Had one for two weeks and it crapped out.

For the nuggets who think fps determines whether something is HD or not, you are very, very misinformed. HD is determined by the resolution, NOT fps. HD video also records at 24fps, just like any standard def content. The slo mo video recording is quite impressive but noy enough to make me pass on the k850i.
