This technical LG u8180 review is based on an algorithm that takes a close look at a phone's specifications, it doesn't constitute a hands-on review. It evaluates its pros and cons to help you make an informed decision.
- Stand-by Time: 205 hours of stand-by time. It is quite good! (score: 16/20)
- Phone Book: It can store up to 500 phone book entries, which is quite good! (score: 20/20)
- Streaming TV: Streaming Video or TV. Streaming TV, provided your carrier offers it, allows you to watch real live TV on your cell phone. It involves additional fees but can help kill time in queues, doctor waiting rooms or many other situations. (score: 5/5)
- Wireless Data System: Bluetooth-enabled, which is an interesting plus. Bluetooth is not really necessary but may be handy if you want to use a wireless headset or transfer data to or from your (Bluetooth-enabled) laptop, for instance. (score: 7/7)
- Weight: 4.44 ounces of weight is slithtly above average. You may find the LG u8180 slightly too big. (score: 4/20)
- Talk Time: 120 minutes of talking time. Not quite sufficient for most users, in my opinion. (Find phones with more battery life) (score: 4/20)
- Speakerphone: It does not appear to include a speakerphone, which would be useful in some situations. (Find phones with a speakerphone) (score: 0/10)
- Camera: The VGA built-in camera is minimal. Useful, but you won't make artwork with it. (score: 3/10)
Overall Score: 59

** Given the fact that manufacturers do not necessarily detail technical specifications in full, some features may be missing. Hence, the script that computed that analysis may produce absurd results. Shall that happen, email me to let me know.
