The camera on the LG GD910 Watch Phone is frankly laughable, and, let's be honest, it's there because LG could include it. The front facing camera is only around for the video calling, and clearly someone at the Korean firm saw an opportunity.

Pictures can only be taken using the on-screen button, so unless you want to take pictures of your own face, there's not a lot you can do with it. LG has put some nice white balance functions on the GD910 Watch Phone, but it seems a bit redundant when you can't actually take real pictures without trial and error to try and catch the subject.

Here's a sample shot compared to the Olympus SP-565UZ so you can make up your own mind:

As you can see, colour, depth, clarity - pretty much everything on the LG GD910 Watch Phone is very sub-standard. But we can't imagine the camera was put on there as a highlight.

We're sad that the LG GD910 Watch Phone doesn't allow videos to be watched on the device like some other options from lesser-known Asian brands, but we guess you can't have everything in such a sleek device.

Music playback (via our Jabra HALO headphones... we must reiterate you should NEVER use the external speaker in public for anything) was good and bassy, and navigation through the music player was actually a lot easier than we hoped thanks to the responsive touchscreen.

The photo viewer is also a decent effort, with a list view for your files and a simple horizontal view to look at your snaps. You can also zoom into the photos and scroll around using the touchscreen, although it's mostly for personal viewing as showing photos to others requires you to practically dislocate your wrist.
