LG has recently released the LG GT540 midrange touch screen android cell phone. Codenamed Optimus, the LG GT540 is not competing with the big boys of the android market but is aimed at more tech sensible buyers. The LG GT540 has all the usual goodies of a mid range smart phone. It runs on the android OS version 1.6.
The tech detail starts with a 3 inch touch screen with HVGA resolution. The image quality of the screen is not mind blowing but is decent according to the price. The response of the touch screen is good and resistive. As mentioned before the LG GT540 runs on the android OS 1.6 which is hardly a surprise, but LG has modified the UI especially the home screen and the menu areas. The OS contains your usual social networking widgets which will be helpful for Facebook and Twitter users. The messaging and telephony of the LG GT540 mobile phone is excellent, thanks to the OS and you will not face many problems with the navigation. The media player of the LG GT540 is fantastic and manages to play Divx and Xvid videos. It plays music files of nearly all formats with relative ease. It also has a built in FM radio with RDS support. The sound quality of the LG GT540 is surprisingly impressive with a clean audio output.
The LG GT540 has a 3 megapixel autofocus snapper without flash. The camera has the LG viewty interface but the camera lacks the quality which was seen in the LG viewty before. The camcorder of the LG GT540 records low quality VGA 17fps videos. The LG GT540 is an all round performer when it comes to connectivity as it has 3G with 7.2 mbps HSDPA and HSUPA. LG GT540 also offers WI-FI connectivity ensuring complete options for online working.
