The Phone Is Ok, But The Text Messaging Is A Nuisance, I Noticed Aswell There Are Folders In Different Places Which Have No Reason To Be There.. Don't Get Me Wrong Its A Good Phone But I Wouldn't Recommend It To Anybody... Sorry
this phone is 70% great for technology of this year
I feel like the screen is going to stop working soon(when i text i can feel the unflatten of teh screen)
if you are using the net it don`t really show good pictures/text it`s huge and you can`t change that
the speaker and genaral volume is the worst thing it`s too low
The music player is great but am used to players you can equalizer and sort by artist etc
on this one you can sort but not the good way lol
no wi-fi but no one cares(so do I)
I URGE YOU TO GET A CASE FOR THIS COS I DON`T THROW IT BUT IT GOT A LIL SCRATCH ALREADY
when you talk sometimes it keeps holding the caller on it`s on
the battery life it way crap too
I'm dieing to get this phone, but every time i try to buy it something goes wrong. :-/
however... i have some questions :)
Does anyone know the maximum text messages this phone can hold? and can one sync with outlook?
ahhh!! last thing, if i keep the stylus pen looped with the phone, can the actual pen (not the cap) be lost as it came out of its cap?
To the poster who mentioned the divx playback a few posts earlier. Was the divx u put on a recently downloaded one. If it was it was probably divx 6 this phone only plays divx 5. You would have to convert your video using the software provided with the phone.
i have had lots of phones including:
and most recently,lg shine
wich i have lost and gone back to using my peble but now in less than a week im going to be one of few proud parents of this amazing lg viewty
i LOVE this phone and im getting it 4 free on my o2 contract!!! im so excited!!
can any one tell me please what the screen is like in the day light ?
I can confirm it takes larger memory cards. put my dads micro SD in mine yesterday evening, with it being a 4gb and it not only recognized it and allowed me to save stuff to it, but in the memory management it also showed up as being a 4gb memory card.
Apparently: added on the 5th, it takes bigger memory cards, I haven't tried this yet but may take the plunge and by an 8gb card to try
just to let you all know the viewty also accepts memory cards higher than 2gb even though that all that the specs say it can handle, I have a 6gb micro sd HC in mine an it works fine. the built in memeory manager however does only show that you have 2gb of free memory. if you put files on the mem card it still reads them with no issues and the memory manager will still show that you have 2 gb left free (unless you use more than 4 gb thats when it will start to decrease). I have had the viewty for around 1 week now and i love it to bits. the camera is fab and the vga recording is very impressive. only one downside so far and thats the divx. Its is publiciesed that it supports divx at 600*400, I put a dix on my phone of 608*336 and it wouldnt play, i would of thought that the phone would be capable of downsizing the image to fit the screen but it appears not, I have not yet tried videos of less than 600*400 so im not sure if it will handle them either, it may just be that it absolutly has to be 600*400 to work wich is annoying as sometimes you cant find vids you want to download of that exact resoluiton. But i'm no expert in this area therefore do not know fully how the technology works, so there may be a reasonable explantion for this. appart from that its incredible.
you can't get the high speed hspda connection for the lg everywhere, I asked in an orange shop and they couldn't tell me where to get it in the uk!
I have this phone and to answer the questions posted: the speaker in it is very good, i have it at around 80% volume as it's too loud for me at max.
And you can load mp3's and other supported ringtones onto it and use them as tones and audio queues for most of the phones' functions.
I also like the mini vibrate it has each time i do something within the toutch screen, as i know (and it feels like) i have done something with it, a very quick device with a great flash interface.
As a phone its great, nice and easy to use personally. Also, you do know this phone has a faster connection to the net than the IPhone, as the IPtone has a 2g EDGE connection, and this has 3.5G HSDPA?
Thinking of getting a KU990, but can any one tell me what its like for use as a phone & is the blue tooth any good.
All other features are great, but no one saying what its like as a phone.
Did you get an unlocked version, or a locked to tmobile version? I'm curious because I use tmobile in the US and I don't mind getting a locked version if it has tmobile specific firmware.
Hi i have the phone in the usa already i got it of a seller on ebay from the uk. its a great phone it has a loud speaker because that what i use to wake up in the morning and it works lol anywayz the camera is great also but it could be a bit better. as far as the internet i have the $5.99 t-zones and that works fine but its slow im thinking about geting the 29.99 package which is the same speed as the iphone. other then that its a great phone alot of people that i know that have the iphone love my phone more then the iphone.
i give this phone a 8.5 out of 10
Umair, i have a question for you, have you actually used this phone,or are you judging it n the layout alone? Because i have used the N95 extensively, and funnily enough this is by far a better phone.
