LG Crystal GD900 Review
LG Crystal GD900 for talking will feel like. You see someone is calling you and open the slider. Not that this is necessary, but the keypad lights up, gets reflected against your face and since the thing is transparent, people nearby won´t fail to see that. If you happen to be on the street or in a pub, everybody will notice you.
Fortunately, the in-call quality doesn’t mar the high-end feel about the device. Voices were loud and realistic on our end, while people we were talking to complained sound was extremely loud and slightly sharp on their end. After turning down the volume a bit, they rated the experience 9 of 10. The phone loudspeaker is totally usable, although voices become fairly monotonous.
The battery is a tough performer. We took about 120 snapshots in two days, went over them in the Gallery, surfed the Web for about 10 minutes over 3G and spoke for about 40 minutes and at the end of the second day the on-screen battery indicator was showing a single line charge was left. The manufacturer claims you will be able to talk for 6 hrs on 2G networks and about 4 hrs over 3G. The LG Crystal should be able to provide approximately 300 hrs in standby.
In the introductory section of the review we mentioned the power of the digit 3 and it turns out the third S-CLASS 3D interface handset has been bestowed part of this power. We like the LG Crystal GD900 better than the ARENA or Viewty Smart. It doesn’t offer anything different in terms of functionality, but its design is… unique. Thanks to it, the phone is far from being just another handset with touch sensitive screen, it´s something offbeat and eye-catchy.
The good news is both a pretty good set of functions and likeable interface are hidden behind the pretty face. We are disappointed with the snapshot quality and the limited DivX/Xvid support, but alongside of its arch-rival, the Samsung UltraTOUCH S8300, the cell phone is a decent performer on the overall.
The LG Crystal GD900 will cash on the innate human aspiration for luxury items that make people stand out from the crowd. And this time, LG has hit the nail on the head, because you won´t go unnoticed with the Crystal in your hand. If that´s what you need, we whole-heartedly recommend the handset to you.
