The LG Viewty Snap was released in June 2010. It has a nice design and a cheap price. It is good for those who want a touchscreen phone and they need a document reader and a good camera. Check it main features down here:

On the upper side it has the 3.5mm jack on the left and on the right it has the power button. On the right side of the phone we can see the volume keys and the dedicated camera button and on the left side of the phone we have a microUSB slot. At the bottom of the screen it has three hardware buttons: answers calls, home and hang up call.
It has 108 x 53 x 12mm and weighs 87 grams. The display has 3 inches and it supports a resolution of 240 x 400 pixels and a pixel density of 155ppi. The resolution is nonstandard. It also has handwriting recognition.
The internal memory of the phone is 60Mb and it can be expanded through a microSD card up to 16GB. You can record your calls with it. The 2G speed on EDGE can reach 236 Kbps. Unfortunately the Viewty Snap doesn’t have 3G support. Bluetooth is v2.1 with A2DP and the microUSB slot is v2.0.
The Viewty Snap has a 5MP camera but it is not an ordinary one. It has a camera sensor more advanced than many smartphones have; it has Schneider-Kreuznach certified sensor. The pictures quality is superb for a 5MP camera with good colors, good exposure and saturation. Video recording is made at 30 fps and a at a QVGA resolution.
It doesn’t have any OS but it has an integrated browser with WAP 2.0/xHTML and HTML support which works quite well. It also has stereo FM radio with RDS. The document viewer supports DOC, XLS, PPT and PDF.
The battery has 900 mAh but because the phone doesn’t have an OS it can last for more than three days of normal use even five days if you struggle to squeeze more juice from it.
