LG Viewty GT405 cameraphone - silver

LG has launched its latest Viewty mobile handset - the LG Viewty GT - a 5Mp cameraphone which is aimed at keen photographers. 

The LG Viewty GT, also known as the GT405, has a 3-inch resistive touchscreen and a 5Mp autofocus camera.

The Viewty GT also comes with a photo-editing app which LG says will allow users to add text or special effects to their images and carry out tasks such as cropping, resizing and adjusting colours and brightness. 

LG has also included its Muvee Studio on the Viewty GT, which lets users create slideshows of their favourite snaps while adding MP3 music tracks to play while the shots are displayed.

LG claims that the battery will last up to 200 minutes of 3G talktime, but we'll put this to the test when we include the LG Viewty GT405 in our expert lab-based mobile phone reviews.
