LG Viewty GT 3 Stars

« Back to reviews LG Viewty GT

Look and feel

A rather glam and yet low-price handset, which looks good in its metal-look coat and cute colour. But be aware it can scratch easily.

Ease of use

There’s a resistive touchscreen, rather than the more expensive capacitive type, but LG has thoughtfully included a stylus to help you use it.

Features

We were pleasantly surprised to see a 5-megapixel camera at this price point – but not so pleased at the omission of a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Performance

If you’re calling or texting, you’ll enjoy the experience, but web browsing was sluggish and the display was not always as responsive as we’d have liked.

Battery life

A single charge on the battery will get you more than a day’s worth of use.

Pros:
Nice styling, neat size, good snapper.
Cons:
Wi-Fi is missing and the touchscreen disappoints.
Rating:
  • Look and Feel 4 Stars
  • Ease of use 2 Stars
  • Features 3 Stars
  • Performance 3 Stars
  • Battery life 4 Stars

Final verdict: 3 Stars

For anyone who wants a touchscreen phone, but doesn’t have a big budget, the Viewty GT could be the answer. It’s a neat size, but don’t expect a quick browsing experience or a super-responsive touchscreen.
