The search began for the best possible price. I decided against getting the phone from Ebay as I wanted...

Alarm bells should have been ringing. When I last upgraded my phone from a Nokia to the Sony Ericsson K800i (which had been on the market around a year at this stage), I had to haggle to get the handset cost down to what I thought was a reasonable price from well over £100. This time, the...

Touch Screen, looks, build, functions/features.

No WiFi, no multitap on the Touch Screen.

The Viewty, such a strange name for a mobile handset. However don't be fooled by it's estranged name and looks. It is an amazing handset and i believe it to be this years must have gadget. I'm sure that most people will say "oh but what about Apples iphone?, that is much better!". Having not had...

I got this phone yesterday morning and I decided to wait a bit before writing a review. I've been attached to this phone for the past 36 hours and I've sussed most things out. I got this phone after reading reviews on here and other mobile sites. The choice was between an LG Cookie and this phone...

I have recently got an LG Viewty (aka LG KU990), courtesy of Outside Line, to review and keep. The main features of this HSDPA (3G) mobile is the touchscreen and on-screen QWERTY keyboard. In addition to this, it boasts a 5MP camera with a proper flash and a low light setting up to ISO 800. The...

I've owned this phone now for around 12 months and am loving it, this is my first touch screen phone. First off, I have found the screen to be large (3.5") very clear with excellent colour reproduction. On the downside, the screen cannot be viewed in direct/bright sunlight or even outside on...

I first saw this phone when it came out a few years ago and it had a price tag of around £300, but when I noticed it the other day in Tesco for just over £100 I snapped it up! I have now had this phone for just less than a year now, it has many features and has easy access to all these features...
