LG CU920 vs Apple iPhone

Is it really an Apple iPhone clone? LG CU920 and Apple iPhone has a few similarities. But it has a Prada like image. It is the first cell phone to bring this to the United States. Yes it is equipped with a 3 inch touch display, and is clearly a full touch phone, but one of the main factors that separate the LG CU920 from the Cupertino music phone is its TV.

Strengths and Drawbacks

The voice calling is not great. The major strength of LG CU920 is mobile TV. The music player works well, but XM radio does not. Full HTML web surfing is rich with faster speeds than the iPhone but is slowed on heavy duty pages. The LG CU920 can also be used as a PC modem but doesn’t easily sync PC contacts and e-mail. The iPhone is preferred by Segan for its PC-like functionality.

Best CTIA Multimedia Phone award

LG CU920 gets the Best Multimedia Phone of CTIA award from Laptop Magazine. It takes entertainment on the go to the next level. The phone gets a 3.5 out of 5 rating from Tom Haselton as it does not touch the web and music capabilities of the iPhone. The LG CU920 lacks Wi-Fi. Even though, it is fun and easy to use.The touchscreen keyboard “fails” because it has a different layout for different media. The UI is fresh. Not all email is supported.
