The Viewty Smart, an eight-megapixel camera phone runs on the stylish new 3D S-Class interface first seen on the Arena, LG’s flagship release for 2009.
Taking inspiration from its predecessor and the fancy 3D cube interface from the LG Arena, the LG Viewty Smart’s key focuses are in its camera and ease of use.
We’re getting used to seeing 8-megapixel cameras on our phones these days, but this one does sport a few interesting new features. Firstly, You’ll be able to control the ISO settings, up to a maximum of 1600. The camera also offers ‘Intelligent Shoot Mode’, in this mode, the phone checks out the lighting levels, the subject and background and sets up the shot accordingly. There’s also multi face detection and DVD quality video recording alongside a roster of more standard features like panorama photo stitching.
If you’re not familiar with ISO control, it becomes important when working in low light conditions. The lower the light, the higher the ISO you’ll need.
The LG Viewty Smart packs a 3-inch 800×480 (WVGA) screen and 1.5GB of onboard memory, plus a microSDHC-compatible slot that’ll take cards of up to 32GB, which is about as large a memory card as you can reasonably get your hands on at the moment. User interface concept, 7.2Mbps HSDPA, integrated WiFi, and AGPS.
