LG U890 review


Complicated and unwieldy, the U890 is good for music but not much else.

This mobie is good for music but not for your sanity. It’s too complicated and clunky

LG U890 review


This 3G phone doesn't just look good, it sounds good too

Video downloads and 3G video calling ; Expandable memory ; Stereo Bluetooth

No autofocus ; Currently only available on 3 ; Lacklustre speakerphone performance

The full-screen display, memory and controls are all constructed so you get enjoyment and value out of out of your 3G experience

Review: LG U890 music phone


The Propaganda The U890 is billed by LG as a music phone for the fashion lovers. Or a fashion phone for music lovers – it's difficult to decide.

LG U890 3G Phone Review


The LG u890 is really the Mark 2 version of the LG u880 which we reviewed in December 2005. The LG u880 made an impression at that time, yet 6 months is a long time in the 3G mobile industry, so has it managed to hold its ground ?

Improved display quality over LG u880. Good keypad and button layout.

No memory card supplied. Less battery life than LG u880. A better camera megapixel is a must for next makeover.

The makeover works and has made the handset look sleeker. You get a clearer and brighter internal display screen. Battery life is still more than adequate. LG has managed to hang on and hold its own for a few more months

LG U890


Have been using the phone for two years now. It's still alive and kicking, though not in the best of shape.

Able to view text messages on front display- very very good feature. The keypad is also suprisingly easy to use ; Although all the covers for various slots look flimsy, I haven't had a single one fall off yet

The design of the keypad has resulted in my 'ok' button falling off twice now. When this happens you need to get the entire top keypad replaced ; Also, the software is really buggy. Really buggy. Sometimes it turns off during calls, and the alarm...
