In the nowadays’ cell phone industry, LG seems struggling really hard to find the momentum when one of its creations could finally crack the way to the top in order to clash Apple or Samsung, which have become giants in the cell phone market these days. Therefore, with LG GW620, hopefully this vendor can gain recognition in the market. Okay then, without further ado, in this LG GW620 review, let me show you some of the most prominent features of this phone.
LG GW620 is another touch screen phone from LG that fortunately runs in the Android platform, not proprietary OS. So you can expect something more on the screen aspect, especially User Interface. The other great thing in this LG GW620 review is that this phone has also been produced by the vendor as a QWERTY slider cell phone, which is great for texting, chatting or even tweeting with your colleagues.
The first thing that i want to uncover from this LG GW620 review is the design aspect.
Something that I really like to see on this phone is definitely the design aspect. It just looks elegant and classy. Luckily, there is no sign of cheap material on the entire side. The physical keys also look so blending with the front black cover.
And the screen itself, with its Android User Interface, makes it look even more elegant. Finally, when the QWERTY slider keyboard is opened, it gives impression that this phone is made for professional people. So for many professional career or office people out there will be definitely pleasing to use this phone in front of their friends.

Interface and Functionality
The 3.0 inch screen display of this phone has been built with TFT resolution touchscreen, and the supports of 256K color display and 320 by 480 pixels. So everything that is presented on the screen looks really clean and sharp. LG GW620 has also been injected with Android OS v1.5, which later can be upgraded to Froyo.
The user interface of this phone looks pretty similar with other Android phones out there, where you can add new widgets and then float them around the given homesreen. For example, on the homescreen, you can put a giant clock widget and float it wherever you want, accompanied with other widgets or shortcuts.
Unfortunately, the performance of its user interface is not as responsive as other touch screen counterparts that use capacitive screen. Anyway, on the below position of the screen, the standard virtual keys have been provided, and they are phone dial, contact menu, message inbox and main menu.
QWERTY Slider Keyboard
The QWERTY keyboard on the back side is also the other interesting part from this phone. The buttons are produced in large size, which makes it convenient to press and use in the daily basis.
LG GW620 has all the elements of a good smartphone; the 3.5mm headphone jack, the WiFi, the HSPDA, the GPS and the support of microSD card for up to 32GB. Moreover, this phone has also been equipped with a great 5MP camera, with the supports of LED flash and autofocus.
So if snapping photos is your spare time hobby, then you will be pleasing with this phone. LG GW620 also comes with some basic and standard elements of mobile phones, such as: Bluetooth, Stereo FM radio, Java MIDP emulator, 150MB internal storage, Digital compass and Document viewer.
So in conclusion, the touch screen phones from LG usually become the alternatives for some users when looking for a new cell phone, especially when other other contenders that also use QWERTY keyboard, such as: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini or Xperia X1 are sold at the same price range or even cheaper than LG GW620.
However, based on this LG GW620 review, this phone can still be added in your hunting list of touch screen phones since this phone already has WiFi, HSDPA connectivity, GPS and the most importantly, a powerful 5MP camera. Besides, you chatting or tweeting hobby can be well accommodated on this phone, thanks to its QWERTY keyboard.
