hi...i got this phone for 18 euros,brand new in the box, with extra battery and 512MB card. Battery very good so far, looks nice, works well...no problem with it....what can i say, i can call with it, i can send messages, listen music and radio...can do al lot of stuff for only 18 EURO....about the camera, well on the market is a device that alow you to make pictures, i believe that is made especially for that, is called camera...some producers like canon, nikon make it....is not the phone fault that has a 1.3Mp camera....is a cheap phone....what more you want it for it?

Hey all!!!

It's me again.My last comment was in Last month when i asked about this phone.In the end i bought and i can report that so far so good.Not much to complain about.

For those commenting on the camera i will agree that the camera does seem like a VGA. But the Difference compared to VGA can be plainly seen by the Picture size.The camera is really 1.3MP and for those who didn't know, this is only x1.3 better than VGA.So it isn't exactly what you get from a hand-held camera but better than VGA in terms of size and quality. Signal Strength and call quality is extremely wonderful. Speakerphone is very clear and even with the volume at 2 i can put the phone on one end of the table and sit at the other and the i can hear the caller as good as he/she can hear me.

The games are not too good though. Sudoku is the only default game and the rest are demos which run out after a while unless you buy it online, and i am not a sudoku fan.The Fm reception is good, but the stereo is worse than what you get in a cheap car radio. But when it comes to playing music it is totally the opposite.The stereo suddenly becomes really good and is second only, if not equal to an ipod.

I was heartbroken to find out it did not have GPS and even after i wrote to the phone company they said the same.To be honest i am no longer mad about that anymore.The built in memory is good for a phone at this price and i was able to fit a Music video on the phone in .3gp format and still have memory left for some pictures and ms text messages.The default ringtones are not exactly the type that will have your attention when it rings you will be more likely to say " what is that noise? is that my phone? " rather than immediately ask your friend to excuse you while you answer your phone.On top of that there are not much default sounds to choose from.

Graphics and user interface are good and you also have the option of creating your own menu with shortcuts you want that way you can just go to your menu and have everything there rather than digging around the whole phone. I haven't tested it with the internet yet but so i cannot comment on that. My advise is to ho for the Black colored one because it looks really cool plus if the casing does scratch, any black marker can easily hide the discoloration rather than having to choose between light pink or light gray which are other color schemes this phone is available in. The screen size and quality are fantastic.With a memory card installed and some 3d glasses along with the amazing stereo this phone has, i am sure to have one less reason to sit through boring TV shows or go to the cinema when i can enjoy a nice movie from my phone anywhere.

Once thing that really turn me down with this phone though is the level of control and certain stupidity LG has placed in producing it.First of all, it only has one connection port. This means that you cannot plug in the earphone while this phone is charging because the charger and earphone both goes and first at the same place. Second of all, if the phone battery is low, it automatically stops you from listening to radio or music.It leave you wondering : who is the boss here? I am still trying to find out if there is a way of overrunning this setting but still it is to no avail.

Overall it deserves at least at least 7.5 out of 10. I like it a lot and for what it's worth it does it is better than many phones out there.Once Again please note that I have not tested the internet capabilities of the phone.

PEACE!

Hey all!
I have a keen interest in purchasing one of these LG GU230. I have been wondering around the net and i am entirely confused because some sites say that this phone has A-GPS and others say it does not have any GPS at all.
Can someone help by confirming whether this phone has GPS option or not?This phone is a bargain alongside a selected few, but i just want to get my details right before i can decide whether to buy this or not.
PLEASE HELP!

Thank you kindly:-)

The good points, has a music player that beats even some top league phones. LOUD, congrats Lg, has plenty of VOLUME, and the eq presets actually do something, live is an awesome setting. Also plays your movies loud through its internal speaker. Screen good for 176x220, thought it was 240x320 as so clear (landscape is a bit polarised though). Camera good enough for 1.3 Mp.

The bad, not much for the price £25 Sainsbury's in UK. It's slow to open your stored music and movies, but seems to work fine with my 8gb card. It does too look a little cheap, but actually has some metal in its construction (shame its not better styled). Just as a music player its good, shame Nokia cant make the volume as good as that on their N8, a phone costing 15 times more.

If this was an Xmas pressie, for a music buff, they would have a fantastic gift. I aim on keeping this phone for my music.

When i first saw the phone it was good i was shocked to see that such a good phone having slide was really reasonable but after using it i came to know that it will take time to open music player when i pressed the camera button it got stuck every time so i went to the service center he said that the problem can be solved so i gave it to them they kept the phone with them for 7 days but later it worked properly till i reached my house again the same problem the camera got hanged so my sincere advice is to try some other piece
