Dont expect it's camera to be par nor better than K850, even with schneider kreuznach lens and xenon Flash LG basically has less knowledge in imaging than SE especially the Sony cybershot department :)

We all know that LG KG920's Xenon Flash is weak compared to K800, and Schneider Lens on Prada did not even match N90's Carl-Zeiss and K750's Sony lenses. I think LG's main goal behind that model is the design and elegance. not performance

Wow! I think this phone is going to appeal to users who want a strong multimedia phone, with an excellent camera (and video recording to boot) and great music (with the all-time favourite radio!)

However, it does seem pretty much just that, a let down considering that you would hope that a touchscreen phone can serve up some business functions, such as document editing software, but I suppose for the normal user like me, what they have is a complete package, with the swooning camera and HSDPA.

But hold on there, the HSDPA only has speeds of 1.8Mbps??? Did I head wrong? It does seem a bit slow... Well, not a bit. Very! A few, not much, but a few phones can already go up to speeds of 7.2Mbps and Singapore's Starhub allows for surfing speeds of that speed. It seems like 1.8Mbps is way too slow for a jam-packed multimedia phone like this! Hopefully we might get to see some changes to that.

Otherwise, I would love to know if it does run on any operating system. Rumours did say it would run on Windows Mobile 6? Seems unlikely here. But it might come with the problems of Windows too.

And one last thing! Just wonder what the media browser will be like, and whether it will be able to access sites such as YouTube ssince it is marketed as a multimedia phone.

I doubt LG will make it simply a phone with great camera functions and just that since they had previously released the KG920 for that and it didn't work well.

And! The Prada phone was quite expensive because of the Prada label... I am expecting that the price of this phone should drop? Considering that the features are way below par, compared to Nokia N95, I would expect its price to be somewhere near Sony Ericsson K850, which should be relatively cheap! Please!

i still prefer sony e. k850, much faster 3.5G at 3.6 mbps and good battery life.

The camera looks quite good! Looks like a solid lense and the xenon flash is GREAT. Maybe a cheaper alternative to the K850i.

i think most of people notice that this phone's front looks nearlly same as Prada phone. Design is ok.. but full large touch screen can give bad battery life. that is not good. Also i guess GSM arena put wrong information as KU990 has 120fps for motion capture for video recording. it is higher than HD one which has 60fps. this is so far going to be best camera phone. with 5MP camera, Image Stabilizer with Schneider-Kreuznach optics which u can not compare with stupid Nokia Calz optcs. ... Best camera Phone ever.!

I must say that this phone is the most camera look a like I have ever seen. Most other camera phones have irregular shapes but you could totally pass this off as a real camera!

LG KE850 Prada phone has got strong reception, very clear & loud ear piece & speaker sound. Hope this KU990 can reproduce the same top quality.

Ive never been a fan of LG since the chocolate, and the prada seemed a bit of a let down, hopefully this handset will be more user friendly :-)
