LG Secret will always look new thanks to the materials incorporated into the phone. Carbon fiber, one of the lightest composite materials with stylish pattern, adds to the handset’s sophisticated profile that will always look new. Tempered glass, adding sheen and strength, shields the front LCD with a polished simplicity and enhances the quality of multimedia experience. Neon Touch Navigation buttons sensitively respond to commands with illustrious effects in lavish blue.
Equipped with an advanced 5.0 mega-pixel camera built into the slimmest profile of any camera handset on the market (at 11.8mm), LG Secret boasts 120 fps video recording and playback. Timeless moments can be decorated with powerful photo and video editing features including Morphing (facial editing) and SmartLight™, that automatically adjusts the picture’s light settings. Users can also take advantage of the Movie Maker software in the handset to create their own music videos.
Entertainment features include Touch Media that takes advantage of the touch screen to directly access five multimedia functions in a single button – music, photos, games, documents, and FM radio. Users can simultaneously flick through photos on the screen while listening to music. Word, Excel and PowerPoint files are easy to open and the handset is loaded with a Google Package that enables the user to surf the Internet, log into Gmail, use Google Maps and watch YouTube videos. Also inside are motion games that have a gyroscope-like effect enabled by the accelerometer sensor. With a tilt or rotation of the handset, the user can throw a dart, hook a fish, or navigate a maze.
LG Secret makes life easier with Bluetooth auto-sync that automatically synchronizes with the PC and users do not have to be hassled by tangled USB cables.
