Hi
Thanks for posting. I have added an image/direct link to your post.
This is a link, made by rayman, which explains how to add images in great detail. It’s worth taking a look at if you are going to post more deals in future : - http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/339941/how-to-post-and-host-images-for-thr/
It is good practice to also add the merchant and price to the title. It helps people who are just browsing through. And in my experience your post will get a few more “hot” votes.

I have this phone, battery life isn't that bad but as far as i know there is no alarm to tell you when its low. This is really annoying when you go to grab your phone and its flat.

The camera is excellent on the phone and the video also. I have a digital camera but use my phone more because the camera is better :thumbsup: It is my first touch screen phone aswell but I still get annoyed when I am texting because you press one letter and it comes up with another. I have had it almost a year now and still not used to it, lol

It bleeps a lot when it's low battery, loud and annoying.

Horrible phone, my friend has one so I don't use it often but everytime I do it always crashes even when just writing a text, you have to pull the battery out. Also very slow to react to the touch screen and browse pictures and files.


I text/call on mine every single day and it has never crashed, touch screen works fine and I find it really easy to browse pictures.

I've had this phone for well over a year now. It does take time to get used to the touch screen, especially when texting. When I first got the phone I thought I would never get used to using the screen to text but I slowly got used to it. The battery life is rubbish, especially when online. I quickly had to get used to putting it on charge every night but I still on ocassion find it going flat when I'm at work or out.

If you do get this phone make sure to get some screen protectors as I have found it very prone to scratches. My camera lens does not have a shutter so I also bought a flip case for when I am out and about.

Great looking phone but the battery problems and the need for a case do go against it. And don't get me started on the LG PC Suite...

I agree, I received a free screen protector with my phone which I removed a few weeks ago and I am sorry I did as it scratches very easily.....and the area around my camera lens is appalling; covered in scratches. Arrrrghhh, the LG PC Suite, don't get me started with that either, total nightmare

Really informative comments from everyone, thank you. I hadn't realised there were some downsides.

But, good price, so hot if someone wants it.

I've had this phone since Xmas , I just charge it every night when I'm asleep , never had a problem with the battery . Camera is excellent , video is excellent , all in all a great unit .

For texting I just put it in keyboard mode , nice & easy , if your struggling use the wand instead !

I picked up some replacement screen protectors at Play.com

I'm trying to flog mine at 50..excellent phone but got a 5800 :-)...good deal tho

This phone is an absolute bargain at this price, I have one and love it, the battery life on mine is very good so I don't know why people are complaining about theirs anyway spare batteries are only 3.99 each on Ebay so just buy a spare if you are not happy

The camera is excelent on this phone with some extra cool functions
#20
Very unresponsive, Probably the laggiest touch screen on the market.

Good price considering the camera etc but far from great.

Don't agree with this you must have bought a dud, mine has a screen protector on and is still very responsive
#23
Mine is good on battery as well but i dont use it for the internet.It comes with a protective cover for the screen and i have never taken it off so my screen is ok.
Only thing that is annoying is the stylus should have a hole in the mobile for it to slide into and not just hang down .
#24
had it for nearly 18 months now, due something else thank god! terrible phone for texting, vry unresponsive touch screen! never crashed once for me and i mean never so that hasn't beem a problem for me, the battery has always lasted quite a long time too, unless you play games! using 400minutes a month i only had to charge the phone twice a week which i don't think is too bad. but seriously i would get a newer touch screen phone because this one is so old and i don't think they had everything sorted! get a cookie or tocco lite or the new pixxon lite or whatever its called!

It is a really good price for this phone and even though I have mentioned the negatives, it is still a really good phone and the camera is excellent. I suppose every phone has it's downsides, my other half has an iphone and on the occasions I have used it, I found it to be the most annoying phone I have ever used

Thanks very much for that, I will get some replacements, rep added for your help :thumbsup:

Every phone has its good and bad points depending on the user , my daughter had this and never had a problem with it , she now has upgraded to the ku990i which even i am impressed with despite being a nokia fanboy.
I must admit though i hate buying these phones network locked.

Mine has crashed a couple of times.

The touch screen works yes but it is rubbish.

Browing photos is the slowest thing on the whole phone! How many images do you have? The biggest flaw with the firmware is that it can't manage caching of images properly..

The camera is excellent on the phone and the video also. I have a digital camera but use my phone more because the camera is better :thumbsup:


It is far from excellent. It is useable. It is worthless in poor light, it resets all of the settings every time you change mode. It often refuses to focus on close objects. It has no light to help it focus in poor light.
In good lighting conditions yes it will take good photos and videos but it is by no means a sensible substitute for even the cheapest cameras on the market.

I've used 3 of them, all the same. Friends have used my phone and commented on how bad the touch screen is compared to other phones. Texting and browsing is beginning to drive me mad.


After all that praise :p I have to say for this money you'll not get a phone elsewhere with the same features I don't think.

Best way to think of this phone however is "Jack of all trades, master of none"

Just don't be thinking it will come close to something like an iPhone.

I have had this phone for about a year now and on the whole, am happy with it. I have the version with the lens cover (R, I think it is). The camera is OK, but I am definitely disappointed with the results given that it is supposed to be 5mp. My son has an old Samsung D9OO and its' 3.2 mp camera gives superior results when displayed on the phone itself. However, once the pictures taken on the Viewty are downloaded onto computer and blown up, they are more acceptable, albeit with reds tending to bias on the pink side. Initially, I had the "home screen" on the moving fish, which drained the battery fairly quickly, but I soon changed it to the black screen, which enables the battery to last a lot longer. It has never frozen up on me. However, my major annoyance is that the phone goes into save mode, and during calls, this can be quite annoying ... particularly if you need to use the keypad during calls... e.g, if you have to select options... you then have to take the phone from your face and reactivate the phone to bring the keypad back up.
The touchscreen is fine and I personally don't find it annoyingly laggy. I do find that the "low battery" warning alerts me too late. Once the warning sound, the phone shuts down within 15 or 20 minutes, even if I am not using the phone ... which is pretty useless IMO.

I paid £179 for the phone last year, and at this new low price, would be tempted.

No wifi. Totally pointless device IMO.

Pointless? ... Because it doesn't have wifi? :roll:

Hey,

I've owned this phone for over two years and I've had a number of problems with it.

[list=ordered]
[*]delete button stopped working
[*]phone would turn itself off and refuse to turn back on without first removing and re-fitting the battery
[*]phone would freeze when deleting contents of inbox
[/list]
These are problems that developed over time, they were not present for the first year or so. In the end I got so frustrated with it I did this:

In its defence I never had any problems with the battery life. If the phone's configured correctly and used sensible you'll get three days+ without a charge.

Great phone in Black but silver is horrid.

Mine has 10 hour battery life in standby i.e. Blank screen, nothing running. only a couple of hours if you use it.

Nice phone, but unusable with such low battery life.

You must have a defective unit. I don't make/receive that many calls, but send around 20 texts a day (including MMS), and receive about the same ... take the odd photo and review/delete stuff and will still average 3 days between charges.
Are people fully charging on their very first charge when they initially get the phone? I gather that this can determine the efficiency of the battery's later usage!
#36
I've had this phone for 4 months now and find it great.
Video is excellent on it and camera is very good.
My battery last at least 3 days before charging and I use it to play games quite a bit when I'm bored because you can download plenty of touchscreen games free of lots of sites.
