The LG GM730 is dominated by a large 3 inch screen, which although not as large as the Samsung Omnia’s 3.7 inch screen, is still very large and definitely stands out. The LG GM 730 only comes in one colour combination, which is Black with Silver trim around the sides. Being a touch phone there is no keypad, however beneath the screen you will find a few touch sensitive buttons (similar to what you find on some Samsung’s) as well as a navigational pad to make navigating the interface super quick.
