i am very happy with my viewty. its cool and looks as a good as an iphone but with more features. as i said to lg the only downside i can find is there is no cover for lens. maybe an update my fix this.
here it goes. someone must start to make viewty mods and a 3 french guys did it so...
Great phone generally, more stable than my last N95, not as good for music as a walkman phone, but no phone has everything you want exactly as you want it. Only major disappointment is no TV out function in the UK! LG won't support it or even discuss it!?!
yes mate, it's well worth changing, takes a little while to get used to the sensitivity of the screen, you have to be firm with it, i was a nokia man my whole life, owned 1 samsung and im glad i chose this man,, ITS UNBELIEVEABLE!!!!! no equalizer on the mp3 but it;s a small price to pay for the sheer quality of this handset man!!! VIEWTY ROCKS MY SOCKS
Just got the phone!!! OH MY GOD!! this phone is the shiznit!!! only thing is, can you play the radio thru the loudspeaker, ive tried and i cant seem to figure out how to do it?
hey, i have a nokia n73 at th moment and im looking at the viewty. is it worth me changing. i have always stuck with nokia.
Anyone know where we can get the optional cradle for the viewty? I've been looking everywhere!
I am looking to get this but got one question. does the 3g camera take pictures on it too. my old 3g samsung did at 2mp but nokia's 3g camera isnt even a 1mp and thats got a 5mp camera on the back etc. was wondering if someone could shed some light on the 3g camera?
"this phone doesnt have a touchscreen
open your eyes people"
phil your post is 2 funny.
it does have a touch screen i own one, your keys there are the lcd bros!
i have some questions .. plz anyone answers me :
1-is it really have a bad mp3 player ( without an equalizer -how come- )
2-i heard that after using it u will be bored fast
3-it has no downloadable themes or games ?( i dont bleive )
4-last one wat do u think about the phone is it deserve the money ?? or its only a nice camera ? ?
viewty picture seen on laptop are somwhere in the middle between n95 and g600,better then nokia wors then g600 it's just sensitive for settings but video recording in avi format is the best at all,viewty beats all phones in european market in quality of videos,battery life 3days average,2days when u play,4days when u busy
no problem. as I'm sure I would want others to answer my questions myself. I also agree with LGOwner, i really like this phone even with its flaws. The design of the phone was too much to give up in my opinion. and most people say the battery is bad and that it lacks Wi-fi, but if Viewty DID have wi-fi, the battery life would just be dead ridiculous
Umm.... yes it does... Open your eyes Phil!!! ;)
guys, i've already got a samsung u600 out on contract with 11 months to go and i just couldnt help myself.. I went and took out LG Viewty on £35 p/month with o2 for 18 months.. Can someone who has the phonemore than 2 months give maybe a log of user experience, How easy to get used to touch? How long to get used to txting? is the sound quality good? Any lagging, freezing up? How long for camera start-up and time between shots? And what was your last phone?
ECbomb & LGOwner - thanks for your speedy replies - I'm relieved it's not just my handset, as 3 are notorious for cancelling your 14 day cooling off period as soon as you dare to switch your new phone on, lol!
Apparently, there's going to be a firmware upgrade soon to hopefully fix the camera problems, so I'll keep everything crossed :)
Still absolutely love this phone though - although have to admit that I would have gone for the iPhone, had it been a 3g handset ;)
i have received this phone not long ago and i am already missing battery cover case on the back of the phone.. does anyone know where i can purchase one???? please help me out
To Vic:~probably it's the same with all Viewty's and i totally agree with ECBomb.Pictures don't look too bad on phones screen but when i loaded on my pc-horrible.Lighting,colours,noise-it's just not right.My SEk750(2mp) was taking better pictures.I just don't understand people who say that photos made with Viewty are amazing and best in 5mp phone range?
I guess that is the main reason why they don't sell tv out cable-pictures would look absolutely ugly on big tv screen :).
The way i look at it,-it's a phone and with a very nice touches,i still like it even with some flaws.
Rating : 4/6
PROS : 5mp camera,Unique/stylish design,
clear music,big background,not so easy to be scratched.
CONS : Insensitive touchscreen,badly positioned stylus,not very user friendly,
lag when my music is pressed, battery life.
I think this phone is not better than my previous phone N76(nokia). it only supports up to 4gb memory card i think. and the buttons are not very well placed.not very convenient for frequent texters.i like the design. but i dont like the way they made this phone. not very good.like some other nokia phones. battery life, when it reaches two bars, it wont last longer than 4 hours.
the volume is not very loud too. difficult to scroll. lots of problems. but well. its a different kind of phone so i kind of like it.
Got one last week. Very impressed with the gadget and gadgetry. Camera delivers and holds no punches. Interface user friendly and fast.
Pity about the TV out cable (optional extra). A bit wary of the battery life. Thank goodness it charges via USB cable also. Found PC Synch software cumbersome and slow. Maybe an upgrade will catch up with current trends.
Overall, worthwhile and a major statement from LG. There a new sheriff in town.
