Advantages: Camera, FM with recording, Livesquare system for friends
Disadvantages: no wifi, no 3G, no GPS, bad web browsing, small screen,
Well this phone according to me isn't worth buying. The 2 biggest reasons for this is the fact that it doesn't support 3G networks or has Wi-fi. Oh well it gets worse as it doesn't have GPS as well.
But there is a 5-megapixel camera with Optic-all zoom which works like a charm with its zoom feature and a good enough range of touch-friendly features to be going on with. The handset looks and feels good too. It is small to hold and with its black exterior it gives it a good look though. The screen size is around 3 inch and it has a nice app shortcut button on the keypad which is quite good. However the video shooting feature of the camera isn't all that great, as it has low resolution.
The one thing that i like about it is the ability to personalize each of our contacts, with different avatars, shortcuts and wallpapers, but most of us will think that isn't something so great as most phones have it.The touch screen is a sharp and bright resistive one, but a bit less responsive then most average touch screen phones, it can be very frustrating entering text in this phone - trust me i have tried that!
The on-screen keyboard is ok and has lots of text options which is quite nice, but when you switch screen to a tall screen mode you get a T9 type of keyboard, it also has handwriting recognition! But the wide screen is the proper qwerty keyboard.But like i mentioned before the worst part is the web browsing as it has no 3G or Wi-fi, the pages load very slow, the zoom feature sucks as the page distorts without proper flow, meaning you need to scroll a lot!It also has a nice use of FM radio and recorder, the battery life isn't also that great hardly managing to last for a day!
Overall the phone is a low-cost, low quality touch screen handset and unless you are with a tight budget or interested in its camera and FM features, i won't recommend the LG GM360!
Summary: Not worth it, unless looking for a low cost touchscreen handset, with average features.
