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.
Hey, Ive got one, had it now for 2 days, realy great phone, I'm just having a little trouble with scrolling while browsing the net. Sometimes it clicks when I want to scroll, en sometime it doesnt click when I want it too, but maybe thats just me having to get used to touch screen.
There is no other ways to control the camera zoom besides the one around the lenses.
hellow evry one i am buying the lg phone and i am getting it on monday and i was wondering is it worth paying £125 on it
Info on how to increase the media player volume for the headphones
1/ Go in to the service menu 3845#*990#
2/ Go to 2 Device Test
3/ then 8 Sound
4/ then 7 Audio CAL Tool
5/ then 1 Audio Calibration
6/ 3 Change Sound DB
7/ Change snd_device_type to SND_STEREO_HEADSET_MEDIA (3rd one)
8/ Change snd_method_type to METHOD_MIDI
9/ Change Item_Title to rx_volume_db7(dec) (This is the Max Volume Setting, db0 is the lowest or silent)
10/ notice what it says in Get Data ? something like -1400 ? this is what we need to change.
Guide is: -50000 is silent.So therefore 0 (zero) should be full blast BUT this also increases the Bass so 0 would be very distorted. And a positive figure even more so.
I think the limit is around -500.
I currently have mine set to -500 and for the most part seems fine, but i am using Sony Ericsson walkman earphones which are decent quality. There maybe differences with other headsets.
To change click in the box for set data. Enter 500 and click OK. Then click the -(MINUS) button, and click OK to change it.
*** NOW, click the return arrow *** not C
11/ Finally click on Write Sound DB to EFS
Now use C to come to first Service menu and then press Red.
enjoy viewty iz awsom.
Go on the dial pad and type in 3845#*990#
Then go to "Device Test"
then scroll to "sound"
Scroll to the bottom "Audio CAL Tool"
Then Go on "Sound Calabiration"
Then "Change Sound DB"
Click snd_device_type, For changing the music you need to choose The 5th One(Snd_Speaker_Media) then click OK...
Change The second box To "Method_MIDI"
Change The Third Box To rx_volume_db_7(dec)
Now Tap the "Set Data" Box and enter 400 then click OK
Now click -(minus) And then OK
Now Press The Arrow At the bottom right of the screen to go back and now tap "Write SND DB to EFS"
And...WOLLA! Your viewty is Louder!
LG K990 Viewty (from Soft ringtone to Loud ringtone)
1. 在撥號時輸入3845#*990# 進入工程模式
2. 選擇第２選項 Device Test
3. 接著選擇第８選項 SOUND
4. 再進入第７選項 Audio CAL Tool
5. 然後再選擇第１選項 SOUND Calibration
6. 再選擇第３選項CHANGE SOUND DB
7. 選擇 snd_device_type 改成 SND_SPEAKER_MEDIA (改成第5個選༳7;)
8. 再修改 snd_method_type 改成第4個選項; METHOD_MIDI
9. 接著修改 Item_Title 改成 rx_volume_db7(dec) (這是最大音量;, db0 是最小音量)
10. 改到此處.注意;下面有個 Get data 還有寫著-1500 地方,在 Get Data 下面的 Set Data 裡輸入-1200 如何輸入？ 先點選 Set Data 空白地方就可以改數字了，輸入後點選確定,要讓 Get Data 也變成-1200才行1908;~
(輸入完數字12004460;會看到前面3569;了" - ". 沒關係~按一次; -MINUS鍵,就會在數字前出現" - "這符號了)
12. 返回上一級菜單後你就會看見Write SND DB to EFS，請點選此ƅ17;！！就OK了！5281;！
只要在rx_volume_db1(dec) ~ rx_volume_db7(dec)重複第9~1030340;步驟,最後再進行第11~12步驟363;可
-1200為小麥大大5105;測試的值,夠22823;聲且不爆音,以後就不會嫌 VIEWTY 不夠大聲了~~
Internet connection is through you network not the actual phone. The viewty has HSDPA capability, so fast internet connection is available as long as you network provides it.
Video is fine, just check ur settings.
i rate this phone, had it 6 months and it never fails me
guess each to there own
Well everyone was ranting and raving about this phone, and I was too when I got it nearly a year ago, but truth be told its not amazing and its CERTAINLY NOT AN IPHONE KILLER, I regret being so hard arsed and not just getting the iphone, or now ipone 3G, mine has BROKEN 3 TIMES, so im on my third one, the only thing that is good about it is the loud speaker and the fact that I'm o2 and those guys sort you out with any problems instantly
hope my view helped
Damien, 21 Sep 2008hi every1 i want to know my lg works fine but when i put a sim card in the phone it just keeps... morethis happened to me. i put a different sim card in and it worked. so i got a new sim card and now it works!
Michael, 27 Sep 2008I've got the phone and love it, apart from the battery life. I'm going to three today to see w... moreits not the phone its the network 3. my mum got a phone from there and the same thing happened to her phone and it wasnt even an LG Viewty!!! my advice is, if u got it on contract, then after its finished dont make another contract with them!
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2008I have a question if this phone is good for playing mp3 on it and also if you attach the earph... moreyes the sound is loud with earphones and the sound quality is brilliant as well.
adrian lg viewty, 02 Oct 2008hej guys if you are looking to buy this phone dont it has the slowest internet connection an... moreWhat do u mean the sound isnt enough. how loud do u want it to be. it is so loud i had a headache after i listened to it full volume
This is an absolutely brilliant phone! I have had it for approximately a week now and it works perfectly. The internet is very fast and the camera is definitely 5 megapixels. If you are thinking about getting this phone but you aren't that sure then stop thinking about it and go for it. It won't let you dow. Before i bought it, my friends told me that touch-screen phones were very slow but this phone has proved them wrong. I have also been reading other reviews and people have been saying that the stylus that comes with it is ugly bit I beg to differ. It looks very professional and doesn't get into the way. I bought it for £139.99 at Additions Direct and i think it is the best choice I have ever made in my life (and I'm only 13)! Go for It! :)
