LG Shine review: LG Shine

 

One of LG's star handsets this year was definitely the LG Shine, which debuted earlier in the year to quite a bit of fanfare. Back then, the only unit available was the LG Shine KE970 , made primarily for the European and Asian market. You could get an...

The LG Shine CU720 is a very attractive slider handset with 3G support, a nice array of multimedia features, and good call quality.

The LG Shine CU720 has a tiny and very sensitive navigation joystick, plus a flat and crowded keypad.

Though we had a few quibbles with the phone's design, overall we were pleased with the LG Shine CU720's impressive style and feature set.

Though it comes in a few colors and projects a lot of features, the LG CU720 Shine's moniker is fully earned with the brushed metal model. With this design, the device is exceptionally stylish, casting a reflective glow that makes it stand out from the...

LG Shine CU720 - Phone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review

 

LG released several Shine series phones worldwide last year; and while they don't always share the same form factor and feature set, the full metal body, shiny mirror display and integrated 2 megapixel camera defined the series. In the US, Verizon...

Great looking phone if shiny is your thing. Multitasking experience is great on the LG and playing videos in strong 3G coverage areas is a joy. Excellent web browser by feature phone standards. 2.0 megapixel cameras has very good performance ;

Fingerprints will dull your shine. Display is hard to see in sunlight. Joystick control isn't great for some games. We wish the battery were a little longer

The LG Shine is an attractive phone with strong multimedia features and a great camera. US 3G support ensures excellent voice quality and fast data. Bluetooth and USB keep you connected and microSD card slot provides the expansion. For the price, the...

Review: LG CU720 Shine

 

LG's CU720 is one of a number of cell phones the company markets under the Shine model umbrella. This particular Shine slider has been built for AT&T and its HSDPA 3G network. In our tests of the phone we find it to be a real winner.

This is the worst phone I have ever owned! It's 3G, but refuses to connect to the internet, can't read a MicroSD card, and can't receive multimedia anything. If you connect it to your computer, you can't receive calls. The best part...IT TURNS ITSELF...

LG CU720 Shine Slider Phone

 

The shine in the name of the LG CU720 Shine is more than just marketing speak. Though most people don't buy a slider phone for the purposes of applying facial cosmetics, when in standby mode you could actually use its mirror-polished faceplate as a...

LG CU720

 

I love this phone. One of the best LG's I purchased in the last few years. It's stylish, the battery life is excellent and the reception is great. Keep in mind, this is an AT&T LG Shine which is on the 3G network.

LG CU720

 

I am a very satisfied customer with my LG Shine. I like the long battery life, the ease of use, and the size. The only negative I have is regarding the camera. It is only a 2 megapixel, which is not the highest quality when trying to print the picture,...

I really like the LG Shine. I have found my calls to be much more clear. The only issue I have is with the button that serves to navigate between the different menu options. The button is extremely sensitive and I have a difficult time controlling the...

I love the shine but not real crazy about the toggle button. It's a little hard to maneuver.

LG CU720

 

After using the LG CU720 for a couple weeks, I like it. It is thin and fits in pockets well. My only gripe is that even set on max volume, the ring tone is not loud enough. Call clarity is good and no problem getting signal. I added a USB cable,...
