Compare Optimus GT540 black Deals

LG have done it again with the Optimus (also known as the GT540 Swift) by combining the latest must have features with a modern minimalist design to make a fantastic addition to the LG Smartphone range. Integrated social networking with live updates has been included to ensure you never miss out on the latest gossip from friends and family whilst the 3G HSDPA Internet connection works hard to provide broadband-like speeds. A built-in accelerometer sensor allows the handset to be turned onto its side and used in landscape mode that is ideal for viewing Internet pages or reading messages.

The 3" TFT touchscreen utilises 256k colours and a resolution of 320x480 pixels to bring pictures taken on the 3.2-megapixel camera to life. Smile detection and auto-focus help to ensure picture perfect results and when the moment arises, the camera can be used to capture video footage. Files can be stored on the internal memory and heavy users will be pleased to note the MicroSD card slot that accepts cards up to 32GB. LG' multimedia player handles all popular music and video formats whilst the stereo FM radio with RDS provides an additional method to enjoy the latest tunes, news, weather and sports results.

Wireless Bluetooth, WI-FI and quad-band reception offer all the connectivity options needed whether at home, work or overseas. Staying in touch is also easy with support for email, SMS (provided in a threaded chat-like view), MMS and instant messaging. The Android operating system (v2.1) gives a responsive user experience and handy apps from Google (Gmail, Gtalk, YouTube, search and maps) make the LG Optimus a fantastic buy.
