The LG Viewty II (Smart) is due out in the UK next month, but the original LG Viewty – now dubbed the LG Viewty Lite – is still a capable and popular phone.

Which one’s best? There’s only one way to find out…

Hang on, we can’t make two mobile phones fight each other, so instead here’s a rundown of each handset’s main features…

LG Viewty Smart (LG-GC900 ) on sale this month

We’d heard it was on Orange from June but LG has just announced that the LG Viewty Smart will be up for grabs this month.

The 8-megapixel cameraphone comes with a 3-inch WVGA screen, LED flash, up to ISO 1600 and will record video at DVD quality. It weighs a lightish 102g and is only 12.4 mm thick making it the slimmest 8-megapixel camera phone available.

Sadly, though, it does come lumbered with LG’s 3D interface that isn’t quite as usable as it looks. Let’s hope the touch factor is at least better than that on the Arena.
