LG has produced a slew of good-looking handsets recently, not least with its sleek 'n' smooth Chocolate series. With its S-class UI it's also got a snappy icon-based interface which gets a little bit of an update with the LG GM750.

Looks like an updated KF-750
I have a KF-750 which I got over a year ago and this phone appears to be an updated version of that. So I'd be interested in this as my KF-750 has been brilliant for what I use it for (calls, texts, camera and very occasional internet use). I agree that LG's touchscreens take some getting used to, but they are responsive and the interface is slick. The cameras are also particularly impressive on the KF750 and other LG phones, far better than anything the iphone has offered, in my opinion.
The phone I got was free on an 18 month T-mobile contract, so hopefully someone will offer this kind of deal. £275 seems a tad pricey given there are other devices that offer more functionality.
Stop kissing iPhone arse
Just because you have become accustomed to pressing with the tip of a finger does not mean that others don't instinctively press with their finger nail. Its the closest the human hand comes to a stylus. I don't always want to have to zoom in far enough to make a link clickable with my finger. It's impossible to design a UI with icons that are clickable for all hand sizes without pressing more than one icon at a time. I think capacitive screens are nice, but you can't use them with gloves on and features like multitouch seem cool but there are equivalents which are just as intuitive but which don't make you feel quite so pleased with yourself for having used them.
I'm sure the rest of the points about laggy UI stand, but I really don't like to see capacitive screens seen as a necessity.
why o why do we only get ugly ipenius look a likes instead of some of the nice looking phones they get in the asia pacific? Meh ugly waste of time is an ugly waste of time - just buy either an ipenus or a normal mobile (mines a 3 year old lg and it phones people, broweses the internet and receives both email and texts messages, and it's a nice clam shell not another stupid retarded ugly useless long phone)
p.s. I hate long thin stupid phones
Meh. That's all.
I have had this phone for about a month now. I found S-Class really annoying and slow so I switched back to the windows default home screen. I also had to do some registry hacking in order to switch from LGs S-Class Text composer to the Microsoft default.
After doing the above the phone is now very quick and easier to use
a bit backward
looks like my omnia.
Get a review of the Omnia2, it is by far the best Windows mobile I have had, it does not look like an iphone, lasts 3 days (with a 30 minute email sync and bluetooth turned on, plus moderate use) and blows attempts like this into the weeds.
