      Re: LG's Viewty v. iPhone

      I've got the LG and so far - I reasonably happy with it. It's no Iphone, but then again it was never pitched as one and it's not going to cost me 600 over the next 12 months. I picked it up for 59.99 and 30 per month on a twelve month contract with 200 mins and 400 text.

      Overall - very nice but some annoyances on O2. Firstly O2 have seen fit to remove the functionality to upload videos straight to you tube...god knows why. Then they have plonked an "O2" icon on the "home page" of the phone. Grrrr. I partly bought this phone because of the aesthetics of the full screen and the minimal buttons and longer term (with broader community support) for nice wallpapers, flash animated themes etc etc. The unremovable O2 button is a really poorly through through solution. It's just plain ugly and whilst I understand that they are wanting the users to click through and use the online services, the button could have nicer designed to intergrate with the LG interface. Very annoying and as soon as I can find a place that will do de-branding and unlocking, I'm there. Biggest annoyance for me (although i didn't think I'd miss it when I bought it) was not having wi-fi so that when I'm at home data is free. I used to have it on my O2 XDA Mini-S and I didn't realise how much I'd miss it.

      Some things it does very well...screen is great, very bright and clear. Music player is good quality, but is perhaps missing an EQ and the headphone volume was a little quiet but that's probably good for your ears. The HSDPA (when you can recieve the signal) is very quick and makes mobile internet quite useable for a change. The camera in good daylight conditions is very good indeed. In low light - not so good. The video camera in low light is fine, but the stills camera is garbage. The really nice feature for the video camera is the 120fps mode which allows for slow motion - but with each frame having half the exposure the lighting conditions have to be very good as each frame is half as bright. Maybe I have a setting wrong....Build quality is lovely - with a metal frame instead of the prada's tacky plasticky feel. Has a nice weight and proportions too.

      In summary - it's not an Iphone - that's for sure. But it is a very nice touch screen phone. Over time, if LG can do a bit to support the community and release theme creators and some more games are specifically written for it, then it might stand a good chance of a healthy survival. I think if LG is serious about supporting this phone with a few firmware upgrades and tweaks it could be a very nice - very affordable option for people who want an alternative to something like the Prada, K850 or the W960 (when it comes out). But it's not up against the Iphone in my view(ty).

      does the viewty play streamed content in full screen like the way it does with saved divx files in memory?
