LG does it at last Review with images

AdvantagesLook, Design, Screen size,

DisadvantagesNone at all

"...I am talking about is LG Viewty. The search began for the best possible price. I decided against getting the phone from Ebay as I wanted a brand new one which was boxed and never been open before. === So why this model=== I chose this model purely because another family member has it and is always saying how good the phone is. I had borrowed it for a few days to see how good it really was and to be honest it's a phone that makes you go wow really! ..." Read review

Easy to use stylish LG Diamond review

AdvantagesThe camera

DisadvantagesThe battery life if you need the internet all the time..

"...phones.. I picked one..! The LG Viewty..! == Why..? == To be honest there was no reason I got this phone other than the fact the guy in the shop sold is so well to me and I loved the fact it was totally touch screen..! It was mainly the price plan that sold it to me, but the phone despite its size is very stylish..! == Prices.. == Well I bought my phone for free..! Yay..! On every network there is an offer for this phone.. ..." Read review

Viewty: aVoid

AdvantagesDecent sized phone, does calls and text messages adequately

DisadvantagesReally doesn't live up to hype, LG support non-existent

"...see the point though. '''PC Connectivity''' The LG software is nothing special, but is sadly lacking in capabilities. Compared to what I was able to do with various pieces of software with the K800i, the LG PC Suite can do the basic set up and basic file maintenance. On other phones, having that extra functionality is a luxury, but with the LG's operating software being less than intuitive, extra functionality in the software is a must. In ..." Read review

LG Viewty - Technologically Stunning.

AdvantagesTouch Screen, looks, build, functions/features.

DisadvantagesNo WiFi, no multitap on the Touch Screen.

"...and is more "tweakable". LG i'm sure will bring an update for the handset out soon and it's only going to improve things. It has a nice Music player which is functional, easy to use/read and offers playlists & visualisations. My handset being on orange has been modified to include slightly different menu items. Most service providers do this with their handsets, sort of a customisation of them. Instead of Music mine says "Orange Music" and has ..." Read review

AdvantagesQWERTY; touchscreen; powerful camera; 3G

DisadvantagesQWERTY can't be used at all points in phone; poor stylus storage

"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 phone comes with a USB lead, headphones and charger. Dimensions and stylus: small and lipstick-like stylus The Viewty is fairly small, much smaller ..." Read review

LG Viewty, what a beauty

AdvantagesGreat camera, good ergonomic structure

DisadvantagesOld technology, old phone

"The LG Viewty was one of the very first phones to have a touch screen; it was also one of the very first phones to have changeable camera shots (for example, panorama, continuous etc.), the camera itself is 5 megapixels and is actually one of the best cameras I have used (on a phone). Even though the phone is over 2 years old now, it is still very good, however when you compare it to phones nowadays it doesn't stand out in the slightest. Which is ..." Read review

A disappointing and Unreliable Phone

AdvantagesPlenty of features included on the phone.

DisadvantagesNot much memory, poor battery life, touch screen stops working after a while.

"...in particular who had a LG KU990 Viewty. After a brief glimpse through the phones features, I decided that this was the phone I must get myself. From the outside, the LG Viewty is a very simple looking phone. The phone is available in a choice of several colours, ranging from black, red, silver, and more. Each colour has a metallic sheen to it, which makes the phone look rather classy. On the front, a large screen dominates most of the space, with ..." Read review

I'm Loving This - LG VIEWTY LITE

AdvantagesStylish And Practical - What More Could You Ask For........

DisadvantagesTexting Can Be A Task.......

"LG Viewty Lite I was bought this phone as a birthday present by my partner mid 2009 and have to say that until its unfortunate end (being run over by a car - don't ask) it served me really well and I absolutely adored it. Wantig a touch screen phone for a long time, you can imagine my delight when I unwrapped this on my birthday, first impressions - light, ''clean'' looking, smart and stylish. Now I am not very technical and will only be ..." Read review

"==LG KU990 COMPLETE REVIEW!== The LG KU990 (Viewty) is a phone for people who are looking for a phone packed with features whilst also looking for the latest fashion item.

LG Viewty = 5 Stars!

AdvantagesCamera, Screen Size, Music, Free Internet

DisadvantagesBattery Life

"...The choice was between an LG Cookie and this phone, however, I wanted a phone that had similar features to my old Samsung G600 and I decided to go for this one! I bought it from Tesco on the Vodafone network as it was on offer for £97.86 (once you'd spent £30 in store). I got home and opened the box and I have to admit I was a little disappointed. All I got was the manual, Vodafone booklet, phone, battery, charger & USB cable. I thought they could ..." Read review

LG Viewty KU99O mobile phone

AdvantagesLots of media to choose from and easy to navigate around

DisadvantagesCan sometimes be slow and therefore freze on continous use on same button

"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 through the 'touch screen navigating'! I'll start with the 5 mega pixel camera, personally I think it takes clear photos, with its 'autofocus' technology, ..." Read review

Black, shiny and feature packed.

AdvantagesLook, feel, cool interface, features, amazing mobile camera.

DisadvantagesBattery life, slightly fiddly but you get used to it quickly.

"First off I have read a few reviews of this mobile phone prior upgrading and signing a year of my life over to owning it and was somewhat puzzled by the mix of reviews that I came accross on various sites. There seems to be a split of opinion over this shiny black marvel. As you can see from some of my other reviews, I am partial to shiny black items. Some people saying that they wouldn't touch it, no pun intended, and others loving every minute. ..." Read review

Nice Stylish phone, The camera is where it's at!

Advantages5 Megapixel camera, Video Camera, Looks great, It has Personality

DisadvantagesA bit out-dated already!?

"When I wanted a new phone a couple of months ago I had only a few needs; It wasn't allowed to be a blackberry (My sister has a Blackberry Storm and it would be horrific if our phones clashed), It had to play music, It had to take a decent picture and it absolutely had to have a touch-screen. Well It met my needs. So I should be absolutely delighted shouldn't I?....Ummm well yes, I mean no, actually yes.... It's a great phone, It really is. It ..." Read review

Great Phone with a Great Camera - LG VIEWTY

AdvantagesEasy to use, low cost, good range of features, EXCELLENT CAMERA

DisadvantagesFew apps to download on it.

"...this phone from Virgin Mobile. The LG KU990i, or LG Viewty as it is also known as, is a nice feature packed phone that is a good introduction to touch screen phones for those who have not used them before. It is a reasonably sized phone that doesn't weigh too much. It is 10cm x 5cm x 1.5cm. It can come in either all silver or all black. I decided to go for the black version as I felt it looked more modern and a bit more attractive as a phone. One ..." Read review
