LG GC900 Viewty Smart

The photo specialist in this Quartet comes from LG and goes by the name GC900 Viewty smart. The 469-euro UMTS model is the successor of the KU990 Viewty. Visually like the flat housing with abgrundeten edges on the back; to do this, it is also still well balanced in the hand.

  2. Data sheet

Overall, the processing succeeded if only plastic is used as material. Somewhat disappointing, the size fails of the touch screen in relation to the total area of the front, especially since LG abandons separate Hardkeys for removal and set up in contrast to the models from Samsung.

Only a home button can be found here. This is the 3-inch display with multi-touch function, a lush resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and 16 million colors. In total, representing convinced. But not only photos and videos sets the Viewty smart perfectly in scene, even the attractive user interface is an appropriate stage.

3D S-class user interface

This arena is like already in the LG the in-house 3D S-class user interface used. It offers four levels of standby for program shortcuts, widgets, multimedia and contacts, between those with a swipe and zapped her can be – where the user can set the contents of the four levels itself.

To respond quite quickly during the touch screen, but slightly longer takes starting programs or establishing new representations. The HTML browser could go faster to works. The LG has a virtual QWERTY keyboard and allows so reasonably comfortable writing messages.

Facilities are without a doubt the photo properties in the foreground. The LG marched with an 8-megapixel camera, with auto focus and photo light. To join the other features such as geo-tagging, ISO setting up to ISO1600, an image stabilizer or smile – beauty-shot modes.

Managed: music player and camera

The LG with maximum 720 x 480 pixels to record videos. What sounds good on paper, can convince even in reality: true photo quality, the videos run smoothly. Both can perform on an optional TV-out cable to the domestic flat screen.

But otherwise the Viewty does not feature too smart: so the LG HSDPA up to 7.2 Mbps, EDGE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth stereo audio profile dominates included. Also, the music player is properly managed with its unusual design and especially the good sound.

In terms of capacity the LG over 1.6 GB internal memory brings a very good pad – if you want more, can buy a card for the easily accessible external MicroSD slot.

Battery goes quickly to its knees

The Viewty smart was in the facilities still in his element, let the photo specialist in the laboratory of the Testfactory important points on the track: while the transmission and reception quality, as well as the acoustics at a high level, the endurance results fell partly clear.

So the maximum standby time of just 11 days, and the typical endurance is weak four hours and 16 minutes. Only the pure talk time can keep up with just under seven hours in the E-network and three hours in the UMTS operating with the competitors.
