£60 LG KU990 Viewty Lite T-Mobile Pay As You Go

Make no mistake, the LG Viewty, despite the unusual name, is a whole lot of high-tech loveliness stuffed inside the current handset style-of-choice; the touchscreen monolith! Yes, under the hood you’ll find an auto-focus 5 megapixel camera, video shooting at both 30fps VGA and 120fps QVGA and 3G with HSDPA connectivity. The Viewty is one serious camera phone.

The video shooting ability of the Viewty Lite is as impressive as the still performance. Switchable between 30fps VGA and 120fps QVGA, the fun really begins once you have finished filming, as LG have excelled themselves with the editing features. Adding scrolling text, little effects and music tracks is simple and adds a whole new dimension to a regular camera phone. It’ll keep you occupied for ages!

The LG Viewty Lite is slightly larger than the other well known LG touchscreen phone, the Prada, but it does share some of its software including the fish that swims around the screen and responds to your touch. The interface has been overhauled and is faster and feels more precise than the Prada, plus the inclusion of haptic feedback improves the experience greatly. Even the photo gallery has been enhanced, with photos able to be shuffled around the screen with your finger!

You can buy the LG KU990 Viewty Lite from Dialaphone for £60 (opens in new tab).
