LG Viewty review roundup pt. 2

December 21st, 2007 by LG Blog UK
 
Time for round two of our look at what bloggers have been saying about their Viewty’s. Everton from Connected Internet is certainly impressed with the phones features, particularly the camera. The LG Viewty sets new standards for cameraphones by including a manual focus function, a first for a cameraphone. It also includes an image stabiliser that helps record clearer images. I shot a few shots with the camera in the States and compared them to my 7 megapixel digital camera and they were comparable. Great praise indeed. At the end of the day Everton sees the Viewty as, good phone that doubles as...

Uploading photos even easier?

December 14th, 2007 by LG Blog UK
 
Gizmodo have reported on a neat little Bluetooth USB dongle from Kodak and Belkin for transferring photos from your phone to your PC. Nothing that spectacular so far but Belkin claims to have made transferring photos onto your computer even easier than it was before – which is no mean feat given how easy it is already. So, how have they achieved this? 1. Whenever you’re in range of the dongle it will automatically transfer your photos onto your PC. 2. It will then upload them straight onto Facebook or Myspace. So perhaps not hugely innovative in itself, but...

LG Viewty review roundup

December 13th, 2007 by LG Blog UK
 
The Viewty has been out for a few weeks now and it's been really pleasing to see some of the opinions we have got from people who we asked to review for us. Mark at Phones Review was positively glowing in his review, falling in love with the camera - at times we were blushing at how he found the phone: Can I actually find anything wrong with this mobile phone? The answer so far is a big fat “NO”. Moving on and last of all for this review at least is the camera and video which will have a more...

The Viewty’s camera and the competition

December 4th, 2007 by LG Blog UK
 
Dial-a-phone have done a testing session with the 5MP camera phones currently on the market – of which the Viewty is one. They’ve done three separate photographic tests of the camera’s capabilities and presented them for an easy comparison. I’m pleased to report the Viewty comes out really well in the comparison and from this evidence looks to be consistently in the top 2 along with the Samsung G800. We have a lot of faith in the Viewty’s camera and its good to see this demonstrated in a direct comparison test. We’re also very happy with the poll dial-a-phone have on their...
