The Verdict on the LG GM750


At first glance, it would be very easy to discount the new LG GM750 as just another run-of-the-mill iPhone wannabe that isn’t going to be able to live up to the high standards set by the current Smartphone torch bearer. Let’s be honest, LG wasn’t going for anything new in terms of the GM750’s design – it does look a lot like an iPhone clone. However, the good news is that there’s more than meets the eye for this new device. Whether it’s just another iPhone would-be or truly the next iPhone killer, we will have to wait and see. Meanwhile, here’s a quick preview of LG’s newest Smartphone.

Mobile Specifications

The GM750 has the dimensions of 109.8 x 53.5 x 12.9 mm – quite similar to that of the iPhone 3GS. The sleek black finish is accentuated by the mobile’s silver lining on its sides. The rounded corners give the device a more playful vibe. The front surface is dominated by its 3-inch TFT resistive screen which has a 240 x 400-pixel ratio, and is able to display up to 256 K colours. What makes the touch screen feature of the GM750 more user-friendly is the built-in “S-Class” Touch UI which has been relatively successful in previous LG models.

The device has a Li-Ion standard 150 mAh battery that should last up to 450 hours on standby and provide over 6 hours of talk time.

Features

As a mobile phone, the GM750 has quad and tri band capabilities over the 2G and 3G networks, respectively. Among the usual data connectivity options present in modern day Smartphones, the only one missing on the GM750 is HSCSD. Otherwise, everything else is on board – GPRS, EDGE, 3G, WLAN, and Bluetooth.

The GM750 also has a 5-Megapixel camera that can snap photos of up to 2592 x 1944 pixels.  Saving these images on the device shouldn’t be a problem as its microSD card slot can hold up 32GB of external memory. The GM750 will also be sporting a GPS receiver, a multi-format audio and video player, an organizer, as well as the Pocket Office app for Word, PowerPoint, Excel, PDF, and OneNote files. All these will be running on the Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system; and under the hood is a 528 MHz Qualcomm MSM7201A processor.

Conclusion

It is also necessary to note that the LG GM750 is a device manufactured for Vodafone exclusively. This means that Vodafone is the only carrier which will be able to carry this particular model (pretty much similar to what T-Mobile did with the Sidekick a few years back). So for interested parties, you’ll need to switch to Vodafone in order to get your hand on this device which will most likely be free provided that you’re on one of the higher tariffs.

Unless you’re already on Vodafone, we don’t see a dire need to switch carriers just for the sake of getting this mobile. Although it does have a decent set of features, the fact of the matter is that it doesn’t have anything that you wouldn’t find in other Smartphones in the market. Simply put, there’s just no wow factor for the device. However, if you are actually already on Vodafone and are looking for a functional Smartphone then ring their customer service hotline and start bargaining for the GM750 for your next upgrade.

With so many LG GM750 deals on offer it can be handy to compare them all at places like Best Mobile Contracts. There you can compare all the best phone deals and you can also compare mobile broadband.
