Reviews: LG Viewty 5 MP Camera Mobile Phone

LG KU990 Viewty


The LG Viewty (LG-KU990) has been launched in India. It was unveiled by Bollywood’s latest hearthrob, Deepika Padukone. Within five weeks of the handset’s launch in Europe this year, LG Viewty has already sold over 310,000 units globally.


The LG Viewty has a 5 megapixel camera with Schneider-Kreuznach lens and a Xenon flash. The ISO800 and SmartLight, and one-touch image stabilizer helps in clicking clear photos even in poor light or shaking conditions. The 3-inches LCD full-touch screen is enhanced with a touch signal to allow users confirm proper functioning of the touch-screen. Pictures once taken can be instantly viewed and edited on the LCD screen using the handwriting editing function.


The Viewty has a 120fps video recording function for shooting videos. The videos can be shared through single-click connection via HSDPA 3.6 high speed internet capability to YouTube.

The ‘ergonomic quotient’ of the handset is improved thanks to the jog wheel placed on the backside, which mainly makes for quick scrolling and searching, as also turning the volume up and down, fast-forwarding and rewinding, zooming- in and out, etc. In three steps, users can select modes, including camera, video, and album.


LG India Director (Sales and Marketing) V. Ramachandran added in a statement: “We want to consolidate our position in the Indian market and are targeting 8-10 per cent market share in a couple of years. We plan to launch around 20 more new handsets in the GSM segment where we have nine models. We want to be among the top three mobile handset vendors by next year. We will also focus on offering premium mobile phones in the GSM space.”
