Updating lg veiwty
The UI also shares several common aspects with the Prada phone, but the two are quite different.
For starters, the Viewty is quite a bit larger at 103.5 x 54.4 x 14.8 (Hx Wx D) compared to the Prada phone, and it weighs 27g more at 112g.
In common with many digital cameras, the Viewty's camera incorporates an Image Stabiliser function for minimising camera shake.
The Viewty can't match the very best camera phones from Nokia or Sony Ericsson, but it definitely ranks as a good camera phone.
Originally a very expensive handset, the Viewty is now priced as an entry-level phone and is excellent value for money.
We originally awarded the Viewty 5 stars, but three years is a long time in the mobile world.
As you’d expect with any self-respecting high-end mobile, a music player and video player are included, and the 3G connectivity provides video calling - there’s a secondary camera up front, above the display - support for high-speed downloading and a decent web browsing experience.
The KU990 is one of the first touchscreen phones that isn’t powered by a smartphone operating system.
The touch screen is the same 3-inch, 400x240 resolution display as on the Prada phone and it can display up to 262,000 colours.The Viewty - daft name, it has to be said - adopts the stylish look and feel of LG's Prada phone released earlier this year but ups the feature count.HSDPA 3G connectivity is included here, as well as a highly-specified five-megapixel camera, equipped with Schneider-Kreuznach optics, and offering manual focus and high-quality video capture at up to 120 frames per second.But this isn't really the selling point of the Viewty, nor is the smartphone functionality a key selling point, as the main feature of the Viewty is the built in 5 Megapixel camera with autofocus, and as with the Prada it has a Schneider-Kreuznach certified lens.LG Electronics, a worldwide technology leader in mobile communications, introduced its new LG Viewty, LG-KU990 mobile phone with advanced digital camera features and the ability to record video at up to 120 frames per second at IFA 2007 in Berlin, Germany.
