The LG's GM730f is a smartphone with the lot. Sporting a resistive touchscreen, sophisticated aesthetics, and a broad range of features, the GM730f  is an alternative if you refuse to join the Apple army.

The GM730f is sleek and professional, with a glossy front, a patterned back and curved metallic edges. Most of the handset is taken up by a 3 inch resistive touchscreen. Resistive (as compared to capacitive) touchscreens work when your finger, or a stylus, press down and connect two thin metal layers. This connection changes the electric current on the device and is interpreted as a command. The LG GM730f allows you to use a stylus as well as your digits to control your mobile, and while it has to be said that this touchscreen is not the most responsive on the market, it does the job. There is also a lock or power key, a dedicated camera button and volume controls located on the side of the LG handset to aid you, as well as an optical pad for navigating.

This navigation takes place on the Windows Mobile user interface. Some models of the GM730f use the 6.1 version, while newer models have upgraded tothe better 6.5 version. It is easy to access your favourite features as well as setting options. The phonebook in the GM730f is particularly impressive – you can communicate with someone via almost any means from the one screen. This LG model is also Next G compatible and the Windows Mobile is more than up to the challenge of providing you with the best that this connection has to offer.

Other connection options include HSDPA at 7.3Mbps, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a GPS receiver. The LG GM730f also stocks a 5-megapixel camera, a solid music and video player including an FM radio and a microSD card slot which can hold up to 32GB of extra storage.
