Samsung G800 and LG Viewty, the Cameraphone Showdown!

By: Matt Sharp

Let's take a look at 2 giants of the cameraphone world, the Samsung G800 and LG Viewty.

The Samsung G800 wears a pretty look carrying a 2.4 inch 262k colour TFT screen with an amazing resolution of 240 x 320 pixels. With such a viewing arrangement, Samsung G800 will definitely give other high-end mobiles a run for their money. Armed with a brilliant 5 megapixel camera with Xenon flash light and autofocus, the device becomes a complete imaging tool for the photo enthusiasts. The advantage in the phone is its innovative 3 x optical zoom which delivers awe-inspiring stills as well as videos.

Music is superb via built-in music player and stereo FM radio. With connectivity options like 3G HSDPA, Bluetooth A2DP, USB, GPRS and EDGE, THE Samsung G800 becomes a complete package.

LG has taken special care in order to ensure that its Viewty looks good. The handset is sure to be placed in the list of the best-looking camera phones. Viewty is light and has an extremely functional design. The large touchscreen with three buttons towards its end is moulded in an attractive manner. The shutter key and mode switch are placed towards the right of the device. The shutter key that is smooth to use is a feature not seen in many other camera phone models. The highly sensitive touchscreen with its quick response ability provides effective feedback on mere taps on the display.

LG Viewty has got extremely finger-friendly icons placed on it. The general layout is also good-looking. Like its image quality, Viewty excels in audio quality as well. Sound is clear and loud while calls are being made. The relatively large screen of the handset makes space for excellent video calling facility. Your Viewty also facilitates high quality web browsing. The handset enables you to view complete web pages at minimised size. Those sections of which you want to have a better view can be zoomed as well.

Both the Samsung G800 and the LG Viewty are available now.
