REVIEW: LG GW620April 5th, 2010 - 10:21 pm by Wajiha H.
LG have not been very much interested in producing Android phones it seems. The companyís first phone the LG GW620 is just too much focused on social networking and it seems that the phone will largely appeal to the regular LG users only. Well if you are new to Android, LG GW620 just might appeal you. Many of its shortcomings can be forgotten quite easily that way. Then it is basically for people who want to have a good Android phone at a lower price.
Key features of the phone are; Itís an affordable and easy to use touchscreen phone, Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G (with HSDPA) support, 3" resistive touchscreen of HVGA resolution, Friendly five-row slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Android OS v1.5, Accelerometer for auto screen rotate, 5 megapixel autofocus camera, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g and GPS receiver, digital compass, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP, 150 MB internal memory, Hot-swappable microSD card slot (supporting card with capacity of up to 16GB), Social networking service integration, Dedicated music player key, Office document viewer, DivX/XviD video support, Stereo FM radio.
But of course there are a few disadvantages too e.g. Android OS is limited to version 1.5, Resistive touchscreen with poor sunlight legibility, No video-call camera, No Bluetooth file transfers, No Flash support for the web browser, No voice or Smart dialing, Video recording maxes out at QVGA@30fps, No option to play the FM radio on the loudspeaker.
Basically the GW620 has been upgraded from the LG GW520; something that has not been much publicized by the company; perhaps on purpose. People who really want a taste of Android in their lives would really love GW620.
