by : Jayson Pablo

The LG KU990 Viewty is just be an appetiser for those people who are hungry for the Apple iPhones. The phone is another touch-feely fondler that features-wise wallops the iPhone back to the EDGE ville. The million dollar question is how did we find using the touchscreen? This can be answered as simply - Excellent.

Some input screens, such as the main menus, are very responsive with large buttons - large to tap at with a finger. Other interfaces like the camera settings and the web browser may have you aiming with a fingernail or whipping out the stylus for accuracy. The phone can be set to vibrate when a selection is made which adds something extra to the touch-screen experience.

The light weighted-super sleek LG Viewty comes with a 5.1-mega pixel camera, 3G HSPDA mobile broadband and a smart glossy finish. It has a large vibrating LCD touch-screen operation. The camera can give virtuoso video capturing performance and captures video at a very high speed (120fps). Its night-time shots looked really nice. The phone also comes with plethora of camera features and settings. By using of its technology, photo can be auto focus, image can be stabilized and sharper photos can be snapped. For its jog-wheel, zooming can be done easily. The Viewty comes with an additional feature of picture blogging, which can directly upload videos to YouTube.

The LG Viewty offers three input options for typing out messages, a virtual numeric keypad, an iPhone-esquire on-screen QWERTY keyboard, and handwriting recognition, which is quite fun to experiment with. Its numeric pad is very finger friendly, with the small keys on the QWERTY pad inputs can be stylus and fast.

Web browsing using the touchscreen interface and 3.6 Mbps-flavoured HSDPA download speeds is its star feature. Those people, who avoids mobile Internet previously, can benefit from the Viewty. Because scanning web pages and scrolling and selecting links feel intuitive and natural which is far better than the conventional style of navigation.

The phone supports Bluetooth, plays a variety of audio files like, MP3, AAC, DivX, through its built-in music player. It has a voice recorder and FM radio too. The phone has a preloaded 3D video game called Space Commander. which would be surprisingly fun to play by using touchscreen.

Considering the power drain of the large screen and 3G connectivity, this will be definitely a great experience to see three to four days of battery life. The battery of The KU990 Viewty can be charged using either a supplied travel charger or using a PC with the USB cable.
