The LG GM730 is a slick looking phone that comes with rich features. The
professional looking phone has an all black finish with textured pattern on the
back cover. The phone sports a 3” display in front with an optical trackpad at
the center bottom. The trackpad works flawlessly and makes navigation through
web pages and menus a breeze. The receive and end call keys are on a touchpad
instead of being a separate button. On the sides, are the volume keys, a
power/lock key as well as a camera shutter key. On the top right is a little LED
light indicating the status of the phone in charging, Bluetooth, etc. in various

The phone’s front is dominated by a beautiful 3” Touchscreen display. The
display has a resolution of 240 x 400 pixels and it doesn’t fade under the sun
entirely, but in low brightness it becomes impossible to see under direct
sunlight. The interesting part is that LG has seamlessly integrated the S-class
UI over the Windows Mobile interface. Thanks to the 528Mhz processor power and
256MB RAM, the interface is very snappy in terms of response. The phone can be
upgraded to windows mobile 6.5 as well. However if a user wants to access the
default windows mobile shell, it can still be accessed through the standard
start button present on the left hand top. LG has boasted about the phone’s
multitasking abilities that can be accessed through their cascading windows and
it indeed turns out to be very helpful to quickly switch between open programs
and even close all of them at one go.

The phone impresses in terms of loudspeaker as well as the in-ear output for
both calls and music. However, the FM reception was pathetic, the phone was able
to catch just 2-3 stations on auto preset scan. Also, one cannot switch to the
loudspeaker mode while listening to the FM radio. The 5MP autofocus camera takes
great shots, thanks to the Schneider-Kreuznach optics. Even though it doesn’t
have any sort of flash, the images taken indoors were quite good. The camera
comes with tonnes of options for settings for both still as well as video
recording. The fact that it took just 2 seconds to click a snap and show its
preview makes the device better. Sadly, the phone just records video to the max
resolution of 400 x 240 pixels.

The trouble is that in the same price range and better features, Samsung has
launched their B7610 Omnia pro. makes the LG GM730 take a back seat for a user’s
preference in the Smartphone at this price.
