nice!! i was sure to get a K850... but now with Viewty and N95 makes me think twice...
i've allready declared my love for K850 and i'll not cheat him! :P
This phone is awesome, as a rule i usually steer clear of touch screen phones... being a clean freak i hate fingerprints but this may change my mind... having used a prada i must admit i am very impressed by its ease of use and quality... I may just have to aquire one of these babies when it gets unleashed in the UK market... Heres hoping that they dont get too crazy with the price tag! Keep up the good reviews GSMARENA! I regulaly refer to your reviews for details on phones in my job at vodafone and please keep it up!
It is tri-band! The specs are right and the review is wrong!
They shlould fix that, I presume. The official LG press release states tri-band GSM/EDGE.
Oh yeath! JUST pwnd after 7 months of N95 sellings :)
Lolz! think before post :)
In one of the earlier prototypes, LG had included an icon called "TV" in their menu. I see that is has been taken out. Seems like they are trying to narrow down its scope?
XP - they must have updated the review because it now says Tri-Band.
Sucks for us here in Canada ... so limited with phone options.
Holy mother of god! really that stuff capture at 120fps o_O its "faster" look thru the phone than your eyeball (human eye @ 60~80fps normally).
really a nice phone but look like its not for normal people :S
I'm from Canada. I really like to find a source that can confirm whether it supports GSM850 . GSMarena spec said it was quad-band before and had been updated to tri-band since a few weeks ago. And this review says that one of its advantage is that it is QUAD-band again? I relaly like to this phone but if it's tri-band, then it won't receive well in Canda/US. Pitiful :
Hello boys and girls!
I like that mobile phone, but I can't forget Nokia N95 8GB!I think that when it come in my country I will buy N95 8GB but if it is so expensive I would buy that one!I like it very much!
Thanks, Raptole(that's my nickname)
i'm portuguese and i think your reviews are absolutely fantastic, the best on the web! since a while i read your reviews and i just love them. it make myself buying my next mobile, this LG is a must have. keep the good job!
oh man this is one great phone!! ^^
the only thing i hate is the lack of camera cover.
i have k790 and planning to buy k850 when it's out, but this review just made me thinking it all over again.. hahaha...
I am impressed with the interface. It looks just like iPhone's, especially the QWERTY keypad and the scrolling through, or should I say running through the contacts.
The camera's functions seem very advanced, which I do not think Nokia can replicate, except for perhaps having a higher resolution, but not in terms of better camera features, I should think.
It's a pity it doesn't have wifi. Though many might think HSDPA is sufficient, which I agree, the HSDPA plans are still costly in Singapore and wifi is free at many locations. It makes sense to use wifi for the next few months until the HSDPA prices, I expect should drop by the middle of next year, when the telcos realise the uptake is not as high as they would wish for.
And no operating system. But still, it runs on Java and Flash, which is very much sufficient, and the internet surfing is great!
True, the memory card should be placed on the outside, but then, this is a great phone anyway!
oh! i'm wrong! it says it doesnt have a "hot-swap". there is a transflash for memory card but its under the battery.. =)
wow! im so impressed w/ this LG viewty specially the camera performance and the design.. but the biggest turnoff 4 me is there's no card slot & the phone's memory is just 100mb and i hope the price is not high.. =)
