LG U970 (shine) - Growing Popularity of Fashion Phones

By: Samuel Herrick

With the growing popularity of fashion phones, the manufacturers have taken a penchant for glossy and shiny surface of handsets. And when it comes to glean and glisten, no handset does a job better than LG Shine. Truly sleek and sophisticated, LG Shine is a real time head turning gadget.

The phone comes wrapped in stainless steel casing. This encompasses the LG shine with a nice gleam, and makes it quite alluring as well. Yes, it becomes a bit hefty but the robust feel makes it unlike the cheap plastic phones, whose durability is raises eyebrows at times. The front fascia of the handset is dominated by a large screen. And the screen is the show stealer here. The screen is so reflective that it feels like one is holding a mirror in the hand. Sure, it is a gift for ladies who are conscious of their looks, but the glossy screen does pose a little problem when it comes to durability. The screen of LG Shine is so prone to finger prints.

Flicking up LG Shine reveals a flat keypad. The keypad is also made up of steel and its numbers backlit with blue neon. The slider mechanism is solid and is easy to operate. The scroll wheel beneath is not really that impressive but if you are not very nagging, and then it won't raise your blood pressure either. With a solid style, the LG shine is also endowed with some entertainment features. To begin with, the handset comes with a 2 MP camera, along with flash and digital zoom. There is also an option for photo album and video gallery. For music, the handset comes with a competent music player and a FM player.

And for some serious business, the LG shine has tri-band network that works over GSM 900, GSM 1800 and GSM 1900, integrated browser, Bluetooth technology and number of lifestyle features. The phone allows 3 hours talk time and 280 hours standby.
