I’ll make this easy for you. If the camera is the most important feature of a mobile phone for you, then you should probably buy the LG Viewty Smart. Here’s why:

A lot of phones tout their picture taking abilities but the Viewty Smart is one of perhaps three I’ve ever used that’s got anything like the hardware to back that claim up. With its top notch lens, an excellent interface, proper chipset and very impressive sensor, it really does the job. Hours of fun.

Like with all compacts, sometimes it requires a little patience with the auto-focus and there is an inevitable shutter delay but it’s as good as you can get right now. The only two slight complaints I have about the phone are that there’s no lens cover – poxy as they are, this is a piece of glass worth protecting – and that the phone feels a bit too light, almost like it’s going to squirt water at you when you try to make a call.

But, if you like cameraphones, or if you like LG, then look nor further for your next handset. The interface is a little on the meh side and no one’s going to be impressed when you pull it out your pocket but, then, that’s because no one’s going to know what a good piece of kit it is.
