Today I bought this phone. I felt sorry for that. It has very bad photographing capability inspite of 5MP. The photograph of a paper with Text was just unreadable. Nokia N70 released 2 years back is much better.

Andrew Byte, 31 Aug 2008When someone writes a review and doesn't even mention what operating system the phone uses, yo... moreAndrew, when someone writes a comment like yours you know he's a bit hopeless.
LG Secret is not a smartphone, so there is no OS to mention.

In regards to the person who said deleting ALL text messages at once was not correct. You didnt try hard enough. go to settings then scroll down to Memory manager, next will show you a bunch of folders, here is where you can set your memory stick as your main data source. But go to handset reserved memory, this is where your text messages will most likely be full. It will give you the option of clearing all, i did and it got rid of no contacts, images, songs, or videos. default password is usually 0000.
Anonymous, 12 Jul 2008What OS does the Secret use?Yeah, I'd also be interested. Is it Symbian or Windows Mobile?
I have had this phone for about a month, already i am on the third battery and second phone. The battery life is worse than a phone that is on its last legs and its brand new. It lasts about a day an half (and thats hardly using it) and the battery sign is no indication whatsoever of how much battery life is left, once your on 2 bars you have about 20 minutes til its dead. i have to have a charger at home and work and carry my old LG battery from my old phone in my bag.
The touch screen is pretty annoying too, i find it very sensitive which means you constantly have to cancel out of things which you go into by mistake.
If there is any advice - DO NOT GET THIS PHONE!!! i had the chance to change it as i had been back to the shop 3 times, stupidly i didnt and i am now stuck with it for the next 18 months. Great!!!
secret, 12 Jun 2008Yeah, that was my earlier intention too. I believe Secret will be out within the next 30 days.... moreHOORAY! Secret is finally in Malaysia and I will be the 1st to own it in Ipoh tomorrow. $300 more expensive that the Viewty but given it's solid built, I think it's worth it because I hate wasting money changing phones every 12 to 18 months. Sony C905 has all the features I ever wanted but only available end of this year, who's fault is it?
After a long struggle with this phone and calling the LG customer services they told me that the phone can only take short videos because they only get saved to the phone's memory. Well a miracle happened as i accidentally hit a button and got it to save videos to the external card as a default. The way to do this is to go into settings and once you are in there with the phone held horizontally, hit the right button and it brings you new options. This is not mentioned in the guide and 2 different LG people told me that this wasn't possible.
i saw a video where it shows that the LG Secret is unbreakable. is that right?
LG Secret Video
Videos have to be kept short because the phone does not save them to the external memory card. They get automatically saved to the phone's internal memory. You have to move each video manually to the memory card to create space. This is a slow and frustrating process.
Just got this phone and already found that this phone has serious flaws.
It is not possible for videos to be automatically saved to the external memory card even though it says it can in the guide.
The instruction manual is very brief.
The PC software did not let me import my contacts.
It is not possible to delete the ringtones that come with the phone.
It is not possible to delete all the text messages from your inbox in one go.
i noticed that the video samples offered for downloading here so us to compare phone video capture, looks like (if not is the exact file) samples from viewty review. esp for slomo and swing video. only the fast one is new. anyone else noticed this?
I just got myself an LG Viewty..huhu I want this instead!!!!
Why oh why!!! =p
Anyway, here's a couple of pics i took using LG Viewty cam:
it would be nice if gsm-arena would put 5mp showdown.
like secret vs. c902 or any other 5mp camera phone
