I inally plucked up the courage to buy this handset, and i must say, im really very impressed with it. I thought that the touch screen interface would be a nightmare to live with, but in reality, it just makes using a phone so much simpler. Even though ive only been using it a few days, i have taken straight to the user interface and rarely press the wrong button by accident. Texting using the qwerty keyboard makes texting so much quicker, and despite the qwerty keys being quite small to fit on the screen, even if you have large fingers like me you never seem to hit the wrong letter by accident. The camera is very good, watching videos is fantastic as you view them in near full screen. The music player is good but the sound isnt that loud, however, the headphones included come with a 3.5mm jack adaptor included, i havent had a chance to test this yet but im sure sound performance will improve with better headphones. Internet works great on this handset. Overall, i am very surprised at how well this handset performs and would recommend it to anyone. And as for the battery, its still on its first charge and ive been using it about 3 days now.

Of course, any time it is turned off for hours at a time the battery drains. As previously mentioned after six hours or so (while turned off) the battery is completely dead.

After "Charge Complete" I turn off the phone in the evening. Six hours later, in the morning, the battery is completely dead. I inserted a new battery. Same problem, repeatedly! I changed to a new phone after the first week. The second phone had the same problem. I put in a new battery again (total two phones, four new batteries). I also changed to a new charger each time. Same problem. All this with the help and advise of my local phone support person. (With all their good intentions they don't have a clue what the problem is or how to fix it). I was told that my experience is unique. After reading here many similar comments concerning battery life I realize that I'm in good company. (Of course, if I leave the phone in the charger all night, disconnect it in the morning and turn it on then it functions properly). Still looking for a technical solution that will prevent battery drainage when turned off.
hi all how can i put music and videos on this phone its kinda complicated not like nokia u just drag n drop what ever file u want on the phone..
While the look and feel of the LG Viewty Phone is impressive it has to be said that under the surface there is maybe not as much power as many would have hoped for. The phone will appeal to the more fashion conscious end of the market where the consumer is possibly a little more susceptible to the look rather than the services on offer.
several guys lament on the the poor battery. my 990R battery type is Lithium Ion Battery 3.7V 1000mAh LGP-580A can long 3-5 days in one charge with heavy usage. i feel i am lucky to have this phone. not a single bad comments yet
I like the phone but I had to bay a second battery, still it do not have a 5 day battery!
lg ku990r has 5 days battery indeed, and very unique same sa ku990. I have this phone for 6 months and it always gave me a smile because of its UI. I am not kidding but this phone is AWESOME VERY AWESOME.
First time must to charge 20 hours, second charge 16 hours and 3 -th time 16 hours , my batery life now is 5 days.
LG Viewty KU990R the best phone, excellent phone, give you everything you need, i recommended for you!!! Baterry is excellent 5 days
THE BATTERY LIFE ON THIS PHONE SUCKS. 12 hours on standby is just no good at all. where on earth LG got the 400+ hours they quote in the specs is beyond me. I have had to buy 2 extra batteries and a charger, 1 in the phone 1 on charge and 1 ready for the one in the phone to go flat. Come on LG this is just not good enough!!!!!!!!!
