LG Viewty Smart (GC900) review

 

The next-generation of LG camera phone, not an iPhone-wannabe.

8 Megapixel camera ; Intelligent Shot mode ; Up to 32GB of microSD storage ; DivX video playback ; DVD-quality video capture

Poor HTML browsing experience ; No 3.5mm headphone jack ; Only 1.5GB of internal RAM ; Proprietary operating system ; Limited personalisation

A cracking camera phone that could easily replace a mid-range digital compact camera. But as a smartphone... the LG Viewty Smart isn't as smart as it hopes to be and certainly not versatile enough to threaten the big boys

LG GC900 Viewty Smart

 

LG's Viewty returns, this time updated with an 8-megapixel sensor and a host of technologies to vie for the title of camera-phone king. But can LG fend off the likes of Samsung and Nokia and more critically, does the boost in pixels give you a better...

Good camera performance, good video, S-Class UI

Possible lack of application support, no 3.5mm jack

Overall the LG GC900 Viewty Smart is a great camera phone that packs in a range of features for mobile snappers. The performance falls short of a regular compact camera, but you can get some respectable images from it, and in terms of imaging, it's...

LG GC900 Viewty Smart

 

The update to LG's incredibly popular touchscreen cameraphone is finally here but can it live up to its predecessor?

Despite the disappointing camera, the Viewty has good basic apps, plenty of storage, long battery life and a great screen

LG GC900 Viewty Smart review

 

The touchscreen Viewty Smart cherry picks the best bits from its Arena and Renoir stablemates. Is it a recipe for success?

Not as smart as its name suggests but a talented camera and video phone all the same

LG Viewty Smart GC900 Review

 

The LG Viewty Smart GC900 is the LG Viewty's successor. Boasting an 8-megapixel camera and a 3-inch touchscreen, the Viewty Smart certainly looks better than its predecessor but does it deliver more?What…

LG Viewty Smart review -

 

Eight-megapixel camera with ?smart? features that auto-adjust settings for a huge range of light environments

Not able to download third-party apps from dedicated market, unlike comparable handsets

LG Viewty Smart (GC900) Review

 

Following the relative success of the original LG Viewty (which was really one of the the first actually decent camera-phone at 5MP) and to continue our LG-touchscreen-phone season (see the LG Arena) we thought it would be good to have a detailed look...

The LG Viewty Smart is undoubtedly one of the best (and lightest) phones out there if you are serious about taking good photos with it, that part of it is very well done by LG. But unfortunately there’s not a lot to back that up, yes the media player...

Review: LG Viewty Smart GC900 Part 3

 

For the GC900 to bare the "Viewty" badge, it needs to live up and improve on the expectations which have been inherited from its highly reputable predecessor, the original Viewty. In this part of our Viewty Smart review, we've focused on testing the...

Improved exterior design compared to many previous LG phones (for example, easier to access microSD card slot) ; S-Class (3D Cube) user interface connects well with the Viewty Smart's range of functions, especially connectivities and continues to be an...

Camera button doesn't start up the camera (or video camera) when pressed in the home screen ; Browser does not support flash ; Video player was slightly disappointing as it only supported a limited range of video file formats ; For those who fancy...

Overall, through comparing various highly demanded features on the new LG Viewty Smart GC900 (part 1 and part 2 also), we felt the GC900 had lived up to the expectations which we had. Baring the Viewty badge didn't ease our demand for its predecessor's...
