I am generally a loyal fan of LG products, but for the benefit of the consumers like myself, I would say there are (Much) better phones out there. I've had this phone for few months & I did indeed replace it with N97.
The problems I had: notorious blank screen when calling (which I fixed using the post below)
music player & interface - poor response when over a GB of memory is in use & screen freezes (UI unable to handle it quick enough)
8MP camera is poor - as cameraphone users will know that for phones, the number of MP does not determine the quality of the pictures (NOT AT ALL!) so don't be fooled, for example, I would say LG Prada 2MP camera performs 100x better than LG Viewty Smart. And the 5MP of N97 without doubt is superior.
As I intend to take many pictures & listen to music, so multitasking is important - best bet is the Nokia N-Series. Seriously though, if you could spend bit more money, I advise you to get Nokia N-series, and not Samsung nor LG touchscreens. Though on the plus side, for its class (upper-middle class) phones, this phones is not bad at all!
One thing to note about N97 & LG Viewty Smart - the screen resolution of LG definitely beats that of N97, though the screensize is just amazing on the N97!
toots, 09 Sep 2009I have just got the LG GC900 Viewty Smart on contact, and this is the first day i have used it... moreThe problem is the proximity sensor. Basically it has been configured incorrectly, that's why it fails to detect when it's near the ear or at viewpoint. Do the following carefully, but be warned, this is offered without warranty.
1. On the phone keypad enter the following code: 1809#*900# to bring up the engineering settings menu. 2. Scroll down to the entry called OTHERS and select it.
3. Scroll down this menu to the entry called PROXIMITY and select it.
4. You should see three options: Enable, Disable & Start Calibration
5. Select Start Calibration - after a few seconds it will return a new figure (mine was 3627)
6. BACK right out of the menu system, and make a test call - it should blank the screen when you hold it to your ear (or when you hold a finger near the sensor), but come back on again when you remove it.
THIS SHOULD FIX IT! All the best.
