LG CG900 Viewty Smart - First Look


LG sold 7 million Viewty handsets, so they probably have an idea of how many Viewty Smarts they want to shift, as it steps in as a direct replacement of that handset. We got our hands on the new camera phone at the UK launch, a pre-production sample,...

S-Class UI, plenty of camera options

No HD video capture, no 3.5mm jack

LG Viewty Smart review


The Viewty brand is an evolution of the original Viewty, launched back in 2007. The design of the LG Viewty Smart mobile phone is comparable to the iPhone 3GS, though its slightly smaller and the edges are sharp and striking rather than round.

LG's Viewty Smart is a good camera phone and the S-Class UI is rich and engaging but there are plenty of faults. The interface is sluggish, there is no 3.5mm headphone jack and the included mobile browser is poor.

LG Viewty Smart review


The LG Viewty Smart is the successor to the LG Viewty, which was introduced about two years ago. Besides the upgrade from 5.0 to 8.0 megapixels and a completely new operation system, this new LG camera phone features a built-in GPS antenna, FM radio,...

LG Viewty Smart mobile phone


You either like a phone interface or you don't. It's a snap decision - and can be almost emotional. I like what LG does. I have been a fan since I was given an LG Renoir to test, and I didn't want to give it back. The last LG to grace the Wired office...

LG Viewty Smart


The LG Viewty Smart is not a smartphone. Let's get that straight from the start. All those dreams of cramming it with apps and games? Put them to the back of your mind. What the Viewty Smart does do, however, is take top notch cameraphone photos.

Truly eye-popping pictures from a cameraphone

No extra talents to speak of, and unable to run 3rd party apps

Shutterbugs short on pocket space will love it, but it's not a smart phone.

LG Viewty Smart review


LG's Viewty is back. Despite its svelte look, the Viewty Smart packs an eight-megapixel camera and features to keep even the most avid snapper busy…

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

Can't download third-party apps from dedicated market, unlike comparable handsets

A bona fide camera phone, with impressive multimedia and internet features too

A smart move

LG’s incredible run of form continues with this ultra-desirable successor to the Viewty; if you're looking to upgrade your phone but also want to avoid lugging a digital camera around, this is highly recommended

Despite its name, the LG Viewty Smart is not a smartphone. Forget any hope of adding apps galore or expanding its gaming abilities. What it does do is dish up quality cameraphone photos, thanks to seriously clever software inside.Around the back,...

The Viewty Smart feels slightly impotent. Its power is obvious, and the design is an absolute beauty. If it could be extended with new apps and software, we’d proclaim it a must-own. Without them, it’s one strictly recommended for photo-obsessives......

We review the LG Viewty Smart, LG's latest 8-megapixel camera phone with enough features on paper to make you the next Rankin

High-resolution screen ; Wi-Fi ; Extensive camera options ; Responsive screen ; High-speed interface

Smaller screen than competitors ; Proprietary earphone jack

A more than capable upgrade to the LG KU990 Viewty with impressive camera features and faster OS, although not as impressive as competitors

LG Viewty Smart Review


I'd like to see more memory built in, but I'm also aware many people much prefer the freedom of a micro-SD slot, so I can't knock it too much for that reason alone. I enjoyed using the device and the landscape keyboard is a marked improvement over...
