Why does everyone think Wifi is so important in a phone? You need to be in proximity of a unsecured wireless network, and chances are if a router is near, so is a computer. I'd rather log onto a computer and surf the net than use a phone.
I test a few java games and a messenger and all works fine.
Best phone i ever been see.
i have some a question:
does the 3rd party software work on a touchscreen?
and does it have an messenger on it?
RF Band EDGE, HSDPA 3.6, 900/1800/1900/2100
I'm not sure if this is correct or not, but from numerous other website, people been saying that the KU990 is quadband phone? Anyone know if this is true?
Please where can i find the manual (pdf) of ku990?
I haven't tried calls or video calls. Waiting for my number to switch to the new sim so i don't confuse people.
I've text, and its good as expected. Handwriting comes in two styles; per letter (you get a divided box and write a letter in one side and straight away into the other side and alternate between the sides of the 'handwriting box' for each letter - very quick, fun, and easy to use); full screen/per word - its average and not great recognition (unless you have very clear handwriting i expect).
About image stabilization, yes it is there and yes it does work. Works as well as can be expected with small sensor sizes (don't be expecting the same performance stabilization as you get in a digital camera). You lose the grain of the image mainly, haven't noticed any really enhancements on indoor low light shots.
Video quality is good imo. Supports wide-screen mode that i think is nice. Easy to use too. Only fuss is that the mic is positioned near the jog wheel so if your using that to zoom in or out it picks up the noise - easily use the on screen zoom instead. 30fps avi - I know that's approx NTSC rates but could easily get away with half that and reduce file size significantly - option to select recording fps would be great advantage.
Ppl for Lag issue:
Yes the lag is about the same as the K850i (from what i remember when comparing them in the shop), seems to be consistent for all available picture sizes - down to 320x240 still with the same lag between pressing the button and the picture being taken. There's no need to hold the button down, once the 'take photo' routine is started it doesn't stop. There's enough lag to think 'come on take the picture' and then it takes.
Yes it does come with a stylus pen. Although no handy place to store it away on the phone.
I'm really starting to fall in love with touch screen, it makes life SO easy and very quick (however only in places, LG need to work on their UI design a bit and it could be magic). On the topic of the general UI etc - when phone is on silent the shutter sound still goes when taking a photo. You can not select your own shutter sound and therefore you *always* have a shutter sound = annoying.
Still having trouble taking photo's in medium light conditions, indoors. My impression is that its not a point and shoot camera.. and you need to learn the right settings for the right lighting situation.
I'm hoping when the LG mobile site comes back up (sometime today apparently) we'll have some nice theme's etc for the Viewty. Fingers crossed.
Hi, Can anyone please tell me if this phone comes with a stylus pen?
Thanks a bunch
thanks man for quick reply,sorry i now how to change themes,i mean where i can download more,cause there are only 3 of 'em and they are not really what i want,but anyway black theme is best at the minute.
Overall iam rating this phone 9/10,i would like to buy and wi-fi card or something ,but its not available on this phone.
oh ye and touch screen works fine,fast and no freezes ,unlike prada and another touch screen phones
To change the themes go to menu > settings (that's the cog wheel icon) > screen > handset theme
The quality for voice calling is decent, nothing special.. but I particularly love how fast google map is.
I read a review that says the video quality is blurry and isn't that good, and the image stablization feature doesn't work in the prototype phone. Do the people that have the release phone agree?
How much you is the phone going for in?
The official specs state that Viewty can only support microSD cards.
Does anyone knows if it support microSDHC cards?
