LG Viewty (KU990)


Despite LG's continuing obsession with unusual names, this five megapixel touchscreen phone is certainly worth a closer look.

Stuff magazine


The Viewty is the spiritual successor to the Prada phone and has a feature set to put the heebie-jeebies up Apple's iPhone

The Viewty is a high-calibre camera and video phone with a stylish design, but its touch-sensitive interface is less convincing. Approach with caution.

LG KU990 Viewty review


One of the best - and best-looking - phones around

HSDPA connectivity ; 5-megapixel camera ; Plenty of built-in image-editing functions ; 120fps video shooting ; Responsive touchscreen

Touchscreen prone to fingerprints, scratching ; No lens cover for camera ; Sliding disc for zooming etc, a bit fiddly

One of the best phones around at the moment, and a definitive rival to the Apple iPhone

The Viewty looks the part of a high-end camera phone and delivers in many ways. Our only concern is that parts of it are annoying to use and over a long period of time could become frustrating. We recommend you try it out and see what you think, paying...

LG KU990 Viewty review


The LG KU990 Viewty is a 5Mp cameraphone that apes the iPhone on the front and a real digital camera from behind. And it has 3G connectivity.

LG KU990 Viewty review


LG's Viewty boasts a 5-megapixel camera and a huge - and highly responsive - touch screen interface. But what kind of beast is the Viewty?

Touch screen ; 3G/HSDPA ; 5 megapixel camera

Tricky camera functions

A fantastic camera phone that ought to rival the iPhone

LG Viewty KU990


View, what a scorcher! The LG Viewty is undeniably a looker, measuring a slender 104×54x15mm, and boasting a three-inch touchscreen. But if there's anything that Naomi Campbell taught us, it's that not everything that looks beautiful is necessarily...

Super-stylish. Takes great movies and photos

Disappointing flash lets it down somewhat

Don't want an iPhone or Nokia N-Series? The LG Viewty is a bit high-maintenance, but takes great snaps and movies and looks the business.

The Viewty from LG is one of the most sought after phones in the LG line. It 900/1800/1900 GSM compatible and is a 3G phone, operating at HSDPA 2100, at the same time. It weighs 112g and its dimensions are 103.5 x 54.4 x 14.8 mm. It is has a wide touch...

If you don’t need the power and flexibility of an iPhone or a N-series Nokia, the Viewty is a smackdown photo winner. Or, mmenmming grunnumm frunng, as Mickey would say. LG KU990 Viewty is tagged with LG and mobile phone. Select a tag (LG, for example)...

LG KU990 Camera Phone 'Viewty'


This is a rather different phone with a camera in fact although it will do everything a modern mobile phone does I think a more accurate description with be camera phone as it is a 5MP camera with both auto and manual focus as well as flash.

click to enlarge This phone has a huge TFT and as soon as you use it you think why don't other phones work this way. The controls are minimal and that means the screen icons often have more than one level of action. However most actions are intuitive...
