I finally managed to get my hands on the new LG Viewty Snap phone and have been putting it through its paces!
One of the biggest selling points of the Viewty Snap is the use of it as a quality multimedia phone – with a 5mp camera complete with Optic-all zoom so you don’t lose picture quality as you zoom in. Build on this with an LED flash and good quality video recorder and you have a decent camera. The pictures below were taken using the camera, the second photo using the zoom.
The social network feature offers a dedicated connection to a wide range of social networking sites including Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Flickr, Picasa and Orkut. The push email is also a good addition to the handset and was easy to set up and use.
The menu on the phone is the standard LG S-Class UI and is as easily navigable to a newcomer as it is to a veteran. The inclusion of a shortcut button to your favourite apps on the homescreen is a nice addition and offers the scope to personalize the phone to best suit your needs.
This is one of the cheapest touchscreen phones on the market and the 5mp camera is enough to set it apart from any competitors like the Nokia 5130 XpressMusic (which only has a 2mp camera). It really excels as an easy to use multimedia phone with one of the better cameras for it’s price range, and the ability to expand the memory to 8gb is sure to be another selling point.
