LG KU990 Viewty Review

by Holly

LG Viewty

The new LG’s KU990 is undeniably a slinky number in the world of mobiles phones. It’s a slim and good looking and doesn’t feel plasticky. In simple terms this is a camera that you can ring people on as well as watch TV, browse the web and listen to music. Its large 66 mm touch pad screen occupies most of the front making it look like a tiny plasma whilst on the reverse, a lens encircled by jog wheel used to control the zoom and navigate through menus and adjust volume, gives the familiar appearance of a camera!

Navigation is made straight forward and friendly by the large and sensible icon layout on the touch screen. Helpfully, you can also set the touchpad to vibrate when you touch it – confirming each selection. Although the icons and buttons on the touchpad are a good size, not having small fingers or long fingernails be a disadvantage, but if this is the case, the small extendable stylus on standby. The only slightly annoying thing is the storage of the stylus which dangles untidily from the top of the phone.

well i bought this model, turned out real bad. Though sleek and looks good, but it doesnt really perform well. When you take a shot, you got to be steady for about 5 seconds, you just cannot take a shot and move out as you want. thats the most irritating part. rest all is fine, but its missing on big thing.

LG Viewty has great feature and a good screen. The problem with KU990 is that it does not excel in any areas. Viewty is priced at Rs 21500/- and at this price Viewty is very costly, in case you need 5MP camera there are other models like Sony Ericsson K850i which has better camera.
