With just a 900mAh battery to keep everything together, you'd be forgiven for guessing the LG Viewty Snap GM360 has poor battery life. In reality, however, it's quite good, thanks in no small part to the fact that it lacks 3G, Wi-Fi and GPS, which are three of the big battery drains on modern smartphones.

You should be able to get two days from this handset as long as you don't use it constantly as a portable music player.

With no GPS onboard, it won't surprise you that there's no map or navigation software to be had here. Nor is there an app store. LG does provide a fair few apps – for example, there's a drawing app, memo maker, voice recorder, calendar and task manager – but you can't expand on what you get with the phone itself.

The LG Viewty Snap GM360 is far from a high-spec handset, lacking Wi-Fi, 3G or GPS. If you want those features and the ability to add more applications, then an Android handset might be more to your liking. The Alcatel OT-980 or ZTE Racer could be good bets.

If you're an LG fan, though, and are keen on messaging, check out the LG Town. It has a very similar user interface and setup, but adds a QWERTY keyboard into the mix.
