Surfing the internet for information on the LG Viewty KU990 means that you’re going to be bumping into some surprising claims. Some fans of the Viewty are going so far as to be claiming it’s the ultimate iPhone killer, meaning its now setting the standard in mobile camera phones with high powered personal data management tools and that it’s good enough to put iPhone out of business. I might not be willing to go quite that far, but it wouldn’t surprise me to see iPhone losing significant chunks of business to this new contender in the high-technology camera phone market.
As camera phones go, this sleek little beauty with a phenomenally usable touch screen has the kinds of capabilities you’d expect to see in a standalone camera. Not only is it a 5.1 megapixel camera with video capabilities that will have you shooting in a high enough range of frames per second that you’ll be able to view your videos in slow motion, it has photo editing capabilities that are among the best we’ve seen in a camera phone. You’ll be able to add captions or text to your photos, you can even use the included stylus with the touch screen to draw and doodle on your pictures, and the phone also includes software that have you morphing your photos and playing with all of the available effects.
Since you’re working with these photo editing tools using a screen that stretches to a pretty delicious view of over 7.5 cm (three inches) of space, you’ll find it easy to work thanks to the size of the view. The 262 thousand color display means you’ll also be seeing your photos in all their hues with their full spectrum range of color.
You won’t be missing any great shots, either, even at night, thanks to the ISO and SmartLight Technology.
The phone itself features a tri-band GSM connection, the most popular choice available today on the mobile phone market. International travelers will find that that the GSM makes international roaming a whole lot easier. The phone uses third generation HSDPA (High Speed Downline Packet Access) that goes up to 3.6 Mbps for the most efficient use of available bandwidth, as well as GPRS (General Packet Radio Service).
Unlike some touch screens that just can’t manage to live up to their promised ideal of easy interaction with your camera phone, the LG Viewty KU990 is no slacker in this area, and was a treat to review. The interaction is both efficient and effective, and uses some of the most intelligent design features we’ve seen in a long time to make sure it stays that way. The icons are small enough, for example, to make finding a tool you need fast and easy, but large enough to easily activate and to avoid activating the wrong tool. If you’ve played with touch screen technology at all, you’ll be particularly appreciative of this capability.
Overall, LG’s Viewty KU990 is a beautiful workhorse that converges in a way that will make your life easier and more productive, whether you use it for home or office. This phone definitely gets our highest recommendations.newborn photo editing services
