LG KU990 Viewty

The phone measures 103.5*54.4*14.8 mm. This is the thinnest phone with a 5 megapixel camera on the market. Like the LG KE850, phone made in a candybar. Most of the front panel is a widescreen touchscreen display. To the right of the slot conversational dynamics is eye camera for calls in the networks of the third generation. Its like the main chamber can be used to capture (640x480 pixels) and video (320x240 pixels). Despite the fact that the phone as a monoblock, there are only three keys, which are below the display. The ends of the two responsible for work with calls and calls to the list of calls, and key among them - for the removal.
The device uses a single connector, which connects through a remote headset with 3.5 mm jack, charger and USB-cable. During the connecting USB-cable, regardless of the mode of the phone (modem or removable drive), it is recharged.
Camera key - the key two-position shutter button image stabilization and three position key mode selection of the camera (photo, video, gallery) - made the right side of the phone. Progress in three-position key, relatively tight, which prevents accidental switching when using the camera, and for greater visibility mode and shift key has three notches.
To work with the phone with one hand quite comfortably, even with a set of messages, but to call it is better to use a wireless headset. This will help avoid zalyapyvaniya display and reduce the chance of dropping the phone.

Completely black body decorates the phone by inserting metal, merging at the bottom and running along the edges of the upper and lower sides to the top.
The telescopic stylus of a complete set looks like, perhaps, even more extravagantly than the phone itself. Normally we are used to hide the stylus in the device, but LG's see their solution to the problem of insufficient space and decided to strengthen his phone with a rope. But this is not the only reason the stylus made a separate accessory. Initially it was assumed that the phone will be available without the stylus, but at the last moment the developers have decided to take into account the wishes of the owners of Prada and do it in a rather original performance. Sam stylus looks like a miniature woman's lipstick and consists of two parts. One of them holds a rope attached to the body of the phone, and the second is inserted into it. Personally, for us to use the stylus in a set of messages was much more convenient than doing it with your fingers.
For video and photos to your phone using the CPU Zoran's APPROACH ® 5C Multimedia, which is specifically designed for mobile phones and allows you to record video in high definition with the possibility to view on a TV screen. He also has the support of three-dimensional graphics, that does not prevent him for all this to be economical and expend energy in minimum quantities. View videos of various formats and permits also became possible thanks to the processor. The only thing that did not quite understand - why did not the engineers worked hard to support and work of the Open GL, had initially put in the processor.
In conclusion, we would like to note the high volume 72-tones polyphony, as well as the reception is in the city. During our testing we used the services of the operator U `tel, which allows you to fully enjoy the opportunities provided by a network of third-generation, such as video calls and high speed download when using the Internet.

White LG Viewty KU990 Cellphone Review

For those of you who want to buy the LG Viewty, or already bought but are waiting for it's arrival, please consider my advices in the following review, as it is only out of well-intentioned opinions, apt to convince you on wether the cellphone is worht the money or not.
Let's start with the start:

Why I bought it:
It's a farely simple reason. I am a youtuber and I needed a cellphone with a good camera, for a resonable price that could film and mod high quality videos.
I was kind of a cheapass, because I bet the Smart version would've been tons better, with an 8MP camera, rather than the Viewty 5MP. But hey, financial problems... Everyone has them.

Rate: ***

I got mine from a seller that sent the cellphone by compact LG box, and not the original box of the cellphone itself.
Do not worry, you will not be getting a 50 cents brown 1 layered cardboard box, you will get a small, resistent box, which will keep the interior safe and sound.
Nice combination of colours. My phone is white so my box is in a combination of white and red. I don't know if other color cellphones will have the same kind of box as mine did. It would be good it they would, because the box is nice and resistent, altough NOT original, and not the quality you would expect from the original box of the KU990.

If you're getting it in it's original box, good for you. Less trouble, more safety, but same result afterwards.
You use the phone itself, and not the box in which the cellphone is kept in.

Rate: compact box: ***
original box: ****

First look:
At a first glance, the phone looks terrific. Great design and nice curves on the phone. Fit for the expensive world out there.
So fir looks, LG did a great job!

Appearence and design:
Let's get deeper into the design and looks of the cellphone.
The huge screen really gets your attention. The phone itself has a smooth rectangular shape, 104mm long, 53mm wide, 16mm thick, fits nicely in the hand, doesn't slip, fells comfortable and the form itself is really beautiful.
If you turn it on the other side, it looks like a photo camera. Great looks, the blitz is HUGE and the adjustable zoom in-zoom out/manual focus wheel works very good, can spin easely. The buttons work fine, but the three in the front are kinda hard to press, don't know why. Other clips, and opening spots, earphone hole and charger hole can be opened nicely, everything works fine.

Rate: ****

Features and traits:
There are a douzin of features this phone comes with, but you are gonna have to test it yourself.
One thing I must point out is that the phone doesn't have WiFi
THe camera works fine, but the manual focus only works on camera mode. No focus on video mode, unfortunately, which was kind of crucial for me, so big minus on that...
It takes WAY too long to turn on. You are going to get bored.
Call/SMS/MMS mode: calls work great, easy to swith on any phone network
Internet: Works great, especially if you have a fast wireless.

Rate: ***

The price is fairly honest, so I gues that for the quality you will be getting, it's certainly worth it.

Rate: ****

Things to watch out for/ Big problems I have with it:

IT DOESN'T WORK PROPERLY!! The phone stops when is used for more that 20 seconds or such. It just STOPS. The battery contact might be the problem, the battery itself or the phone itself, but I'm keeping the cellphone on my desk!

Overall rating: ***

I LIKE IT but it could've been BETTER!

eh... so so camera phone

The one I bought was a silver one (which is more of a brownish-grayish color) sent from Hong Kong. It doesn't have the alphabetical grouping on the contact list, so it makes it very hard to scroll through the contacts (especially if you have a lot). There's the qwerty keyboard that you could only use to type texts and emails. There's also that handwriting recognition that's pretty neat but not too practical (because it's a bit slow). I like the FM Radio but you could only listen to it with the headset because that acts as the antenna. The 5mp camera is okay, not the best, it's pretty much what you see is what you get, outdoor photos are great though, indoors not so much. The flash is not very bright which makes it impossible to take decent indoor photos. There's also this camera feature where you change the setting so that the lens shows yourself on the lcd (for example if you want to take a picture of yourself and a friend but can't see yourself) this camera lets you see yourself, but it bumps the resolution down to 640x480. There's no stylus holder so it's dangling like a keychain on the side of the phone. The max 2gb microSD it holds is under the battery =T The battery life is horrible, I have to charge it every night and I don't use it much either. The phone gets extremely hot when charging. Those are all my 'complaints' about the viewty, but overall i love the phone. I got it mainly for the 5mp camera.

Unlocked cellphone LG KU990 Viewty

I bought this phone for child 14 years old. We very quickly found all options even without user guide. Interface is very intuitive. There is a lot of features interesting for teens and for its reasonable price it is very good phone. 5M-pixel camera with flash makes good enough pictures, multiple feature for multimedia content.
The only one disadvantage we saw after 3 day of use is not very sensitive touch screen. Especially difficult is scrolling task. It takes us several time entering into item and then to go back before we managed to scroll menu.
My conclusion is worth to buy.

LG KU990(viewty) w/ rogers, in edmonton canada

design : very good. clean, easy-to-use buttons, good touchscreen

camera : both the camera and camcorder works great. w/ buttons on side,
it is very convenient to switch from one mode to another.

functionality : w/ up to 2GB microSD support, it provides solid music player
and high resolution video playback.
very easy to customize the ringtones, callerID and wallpaper.

reception : although its doesn't support GSM850, it still works great in most
of the area(including the campus and buildings). however it didn't
catch any signal at all at the southgate shopping centre(where I
activated the phone). i haven't been to other malls or major
buildings, but hope it works... (other people's reviews said pretty
much the same thing; reception is good for most part of the city)

overall : if the reception could be fixed then i would've given 5/5 but so far
it isn't the critical problem, it works okay.
