LG Optimus GT540 review

Does this low cost Android handset deliver good value for money?

The LG Optimus GT540 video footage was a little on the jerky side, but fine for capturing a memento or two.

It is a shame the maximum resolution is just VGA (640x480), but at least video duration is limited to the maximum that your media card can cope with, so you can knock your socks off shooting movies if you like.

However, it's only going to be decent enough for YouTube uploading at best - don't think you'll be the next Tarantino with this camera.
