Business security measures using SSL

The music player is functional but not much fun, with a blocky interface that's reasonably easy to work with your thumb, yet looks rather cramped. The sound through the supplied speakers is tinny and lacking in body and there's no graphic equaliser on board.

LG GM750

Plenty of niggles, but a good battery life

At least LG offers the chance to upgrade the headphones – they connect to the phone using the micro USB socket, but there's a 3.5mm jack at the end of a dongle adaptor. One saving grace for the GM750 is battery life. It gave us close to two days of moderate to heavy use – not bad at all for a smart phone with an extensive spec list.

Verdict

The LG GM750 looks pretty good on paper but we found it to be a frustrating device in practice, largely because of its unresponsive screen. Even once we'd figured out how to get it working reliably, we still didn't feel comfortable having to use our thumbnails. The camera is OK, the browser is more than capable, but the GM750 doesn't quite seem to know whether it wants to be a high-end smart phone or a do-it-all workhorse, and falls somewhere between the two. So despite a high-ish spec list LG’s GM750 never quite lives up to its promise. ®
