Comment: This phone is awful! When i first got the phone i had to take it back because it wouldn't let me answer calls. The replacement is not much better the touch screen has a very slow reaction and the screen changes to horizontal even when the phone is not being held that way. It turns its self off all the time and sometimes wont even let me send texts, make calls or use the camera. The battery life is terrible and runs out incredibly quickly. I cannot wait for my contract to end so i can get a new phone i will never get an LG phone again!
Comment: viewty snap is better tbh
Bad: creates 2 pics when added in contacts(so the one you've taken and smaller one for contact)
Comment: Considering i have changed from the NEW and all so brilliant (yeah right) Sony Ericsson W995, it just goes to show this site has its favorites, ok the Viewty smart may slow a little when taking a pic but lets face it who's gonna take a pic of a fast moving object when you've got slomo video i wont, and notice how nobody has said anything bout the software on the VS, because its brilliant in every way, other than that really bland really boring SEW995 ok if you wanna walkman the w995 is good but the VS beats it in terms of player by a mile, graphics are better sound is awesome (notice how lg haven't had to give you a free set of speakers, thats because the VS dont need em) and the SE W995 does trust me and they still sound poor anything above 7 volume, not so good walkman then, then theres the problem i had with the SE W995 buttons stopped working after 2 weeks pc kicked me out half way through file transfer (not computer or cable tried different se phone) then theres that horrible slide that become loose within the same 2 week period, on my second phone all these problems took just 14 hours to settle in, so i changed to the viewty smart and so far so good, i dont feel like i'm gonna break it, it hasn't disconnected from my pc and the buttons are still working oh and in regards to the pc suite yeah bit difficult there but thats why you got mass storage mode drag and drop to and from the phone easy!!!! oh one other thing the se w995 also defaults back to original settings when you exit the camera so VS not alone there, anyway this is my opinon of said phones and apparently the jet is pretty good too according to a friend (another not so good phone apparently) i liked the SE W995 when i had no problems and the worst was the quality control ( loose slider) i just felt like i was gonna break it all the time and the funny thing is i see another one in a worse condition so, if your looking for an exciting very smart looking sleek mobile with plenty of functions you should just take a look at the VS texting isnt that bad, i used a tocco, just as good, that ended up getting changed for a renoir (lg) and that was a friend, as i said this is my opinon i have compared it to several phones as you do and its come out on top. hope this helps.
