LG Viewty Snap Review

Performance and Conclusion:

Call quality of the LG Viewty Snap was decent in the ear speaker, although voices sounded a bit thin, while the other party was hearing us very well, with natural voice representation.
The 900mAh battery is good for 5.5 hours of talk in 2G mode (not that there is any other mode), and 16 days of standby, as per the company.

If we put all the features of the phone together and compare with the price, we would certainly receive a good value for the money in the end, at least on paper. In reality, though, the poor 60MB of internal memory in total, and slow processor make the interface laggy and unresponsive. Nevertheless, LG slapped a 5MP camera with an LED flash and a lot of shooting options on the device, which takes decent photos. If only the video was better, then we could say that it is worth having the LG Viewty Snap as a budget cameraphone. Unfortunately, for that price, one could get the Samsung Monte feature phone, for instance, which is with way better specs and performance, not to mention pictures and video that are on par with the ones we obtained from the LG Viewty Snap.

I agree, RR...! Instead of offering a SUPERIOR device LG wastes time and energy on mediocrity. There are enough mediocre cellular phones out there all ready. This one only adds to that mix. Bummer. Peace!

I agree. Another POS. Sad, though. Not everyone wants a smartphone. LG used to be good for that market. Now it looks like Samsung has taken that role, but also made advances in smartphones. LG has some catching up to do if they want to keep some market share.
