i brought this phone on the 22nd of august 08 and was pleased with it but found the battery would go dead in about 3 days, which being touch screen and the vibration when touching screen i figured it was normal but a month down the line it is really bad. I can fully charge the battery up and without using it and no bluetooth on i am lucky for the battery to last 6 HOURS please consider this before buying because i think this maybe a design fault, for other people i have spoken to since have had the same problem. i only hope that when you read this it might make you think twice.
Can someone help me before i buy this phone...Does this 3G support t-mobile?...If not which should i get Ku990 or KE990?
opixon, 11 Oct 2008I've read a lot of reviews on this phone but never have I come across any mention of 3.5mm aud... morethe phones comes with 3.5mm jack adaptor (complete with remote volume control and handsfree functions) in the retail box. So there is no problem about having your own headphones.
I've read a lot of reviews on this phone but never have I come across any mention of 3.5mm audio jack compatibility. Folks any idea?
Brilliant phone. Camera quality fantastic, divx converter makes watching your favorite videos on your phone easy. Being touch screen just makes using a phone so much easier rather than more difficult as i anticipated. I find battery life brilliant. Lasts about 3-5 days depending on wether i listen to music or not. Web browsing is good, but ideally you need to use the stylus as using your fingers for web browsing can be fiddly. Luckily, using the touch screen to text isnt difficult and you can do it quite easily without the stylus. The only problem i had with the phone was the music playback quality which was disappointing. However, i have just followed the instructions below to change the settings to make playback louder through headphones and it worked. Thanks to the poster that gave those instructions. So overall, an outstanding phone, and if you change those settings for music playback, a faultless phone.
I love this phone, but the battery life is realllllllyy bad!!!! cameras excellent, loveit, but i guess the feautures a phone the more battery it is bound to take

Hi, just got my viewty yesterday. I have the silver one, together with the docking station. I was thinking of buying the samsung F480 but got this one instead. So far, no regrets.. It have the TV out capability and divx playback over the samsung.. I have installed some games and I'm enjoying it..

If you really want to compare the number of 'clicks' it takes for a phone to create a new text message, my old crappy phone takes one button. The left button, that's half the number of clicks your 'godly' K800 takes.
Yours takes 3 to get to music, my old took one button, again. That's 3x as fast as yours.
And you also say the touchscreen isn't responsive, but you've never even owned a touchscreen phone before. How can you compare?
And are you SERIOUSLY saying that the fact that the calculator on a CELL PHONE does not have percentage? If you're not smart enough to know how to use percentage (x100, /100), I don't think you have a right to buy this phone.
And lastly, keep your vid editting for your computer, it's much better than anything a phone can do.

i had recently bought lg viewty hand set but my phone get automatically switched off once or twice a day then again when i remove my phone betery & agaon insert it then it get switched on & one more thing i would like to ask that when i receive any call then the speker volume of the other person is very low i don't know how to increse speker volume.
I think this is a good phone. I totally agree to reviews saying that this is not an i-phone killer since it should be pegged with other "camera phone." It would really be a good experience for those not used-to the touch screen thing and probably feel the i-phone craze. Also, IMO, this is a good substitute for a camera taking into consideration its price and convenience (Philippine condition). Please refrain from comments that Omnia, iphone 3g, etc. is better. It may be better in some of the specs but kindly consider the price/ package of technology. I find this phone as value for money. That's all folks!
Well it seems people love this phone, why? I dont know. As a 3 inch touch screen devise, its a modern tech toy. However as a telephone its the slowest to get around phone I have used. coming form a ericsson T28 from 2000, to a sony ericsson k800, the viewty is not so practical.
Ok to write a sms, lets see how many clicks...3 clicks not to bad but still. on k800..2 clicks.
want to access music hhhmmm lets see how many clicks......no more then 6 clicks to get into my play list and access it. gooodnnnessss come on this is ridicules, k800 3 clicks to access my play list.
no percentage in the calculator.
the touch screen is at times not so responsive, and overall not fast to get around.
No video editor, and I mean I cant edit clips together like one can with the k800
Some people got there viewty with a document reader but the viewty I got has no document reader, the document folder is empty.
So overall Im not so happy with it, I hope the LG KC910 Renoir will be better in all the above mentioned with the implementation of widgets.
