LG Telecom was one of the first mobile phone companies to launch a 3G (third generation technology) phone. The most outstanding characteristic of 3G phones is video telephony. Launched in the U.K., the company's LG U8380 is another 3G phone. However, in the U.S., no mobile service provider offers this phone. The 3G clamshell phone weighs around 139g and has physical dimensions of 97.1x51.6x25mm, along with an external antenna stub. The external display has a 65K colors TFT (128x160 pixels) screen that displays vital information like time, date, reception meter, battery life, and even a wallpaper. The internal display has a 262K colors TFT (176x220 pixels) screen. The phone has an internal memory of around 24MB, which can be expanded via TransFlash cards ' useful for those who intend to use the phone as an MP3 player. Played through external speakers or headphones, the LG U8380 provides excellent quality music. Though similar to previous LG models, the LG U8380 has two fixed, instead of rotating, cameras: a 0.3 mega pixel video camera, and a 1.3 mega-pixel camera for taking good quality pictures up to a resolution of 1280x960, besides a host of other camera modes to choose from. The U8380 supports Bluetooth, WAP, GPRS, and USB for connecting to other PCs and wireless devices. The Li-Ion 1400 mAh battery gives an average talk time of approximately 3 hours, while the standby time is around 6 days. The phone can play audio files in MP3, AAC, MIDI, and AMR formats, and videos in GP3 and MPEG4 file formats. It also incorporates video streaming for watching live videos.
