Those looking to recycle mobile phones for a new touchscreen device might be interested in a new article from Trusted Reviews.

In a recent piece considering the LG GC900 - or Viewty Smart as it is also known - Edward Chester says the company has been able to follow up what was originally considered a big rival for the Apple iPhone 3G.

He explains the multimedia-focused, touch-enabled smartphone was one of the first to do this and sold well as a result.

In addition, Mr Chester states that with the inclusion of an eight megapixel camera and high resolution screen, the new model may be just as popular.

However, he concludes that all in all the LG Viewty Smart GC900 could never boast the same level of quality as its Apple rival, but for those looking for "an elegant, easy to use all-rounder […] at a decent price," it may be just right.

The device was announced in April this year and is also equipped with the manufacturer's award-winning 3D S-Class user interface.
