LG used MTK 6577 chipset (Early 2012), very funny :)
It was a good chipset, but AGAIN : IT WAS.
I'm wondering why they didn't choosed MTK6589 or MTK6592, I think these chipsets are not much expensiver than 6577.
There are too many unbranded chinese phones with HD display arround 150-200 dollars even with MTK6589 SoC.
Very wrong choice for LG.
I don't think this phone has much chance, even for low-budget markets.
Look other specs...
Screen : qHD for 5.5 giant screen ( may be you can see see pixels )
Connectivity : MTK chips have allways issues with 3G and WiFi, especially WiFi performing not very well.
3G/HSPA arround 4-5 mbps (depends on your mobile provider)
Audio quality : Very basic DSP, makes not much difference if you use good quality headsets.
Software : Jellybean 4.1.2 ( its a bit old, isn't it? )
However, may be LG surprises people and provide good software support which I don't think so :)
They never did that most of past phones like : LG p970, p920, p880, so on...
PRODUCE AND FORGET POLICY
its too lite :(
atleast 1.4 ghz quad core processor shud ve been put
This is what I want. Big screen with large battery. I guess this will not be expensive though. I really wanna get this phone.
rocko, 16 Oct 2013Lol totally weak chipset...you cant expect s800 in cheap mobile... depending on prices features also varies
This low end Chipset, MediaTek processor smartphone should not cost more than £ 200.
otherwise no buyers would be available for it.
Anonymous, 15 Oct 2013HAHAHA! 250$? Dude, this will be more like 500$, 5.5" QHD and HUGE battery. LOL NO Dude.dude who told you that it will be around 500$ hope it will lie between 300$ to 400$
1GHz dual core???
Come on LG!
When they said "lite," they meant it!
And a Mediatek processor? Good grief!
Edon, 15 Oct 2013I like the battery I think dual core and 1 GB ram is enough for me to watch videos while trave... moreHAHAHA! 250$? Dude, this will be more like 500$, 5.5" QHD and HUGE battery. LOL NO Dude.
