This phone includes an average x screen, giving this cellphone a good image quality.

This phone is equipped with only a 0.3 MP back facing camera.

This phone counts with a small 900 mAh Li-Ion battery that can keep this phone running for some hours, although you will probably find yourself looking for a place to charge it after some moderate use. LG says this cellphone has a 7.5 hs talk time and a 552 hours stand by time.

The LG GS170 provides 3G connection type, over EDGE technologies. This device works with a SIM card for GSM networks.
