I would overall have to say this phone leaves me with several mixed feelings.
Lets start with the plus's
+ the tons of apps that are free
+ The full keyboard with even seperate numbers
+ the 5 mp camera
+ the price (overall very inexpensive
now the cons......
- The 3g shuts itself off randomly and only way to turn it back on is to restart the phone...
- the touch screen is very sluggish and lag like a champ
- The battery life probably the biggest annoyance of all I know how to charge my phone i only charge it fully when its dead like 100%. The battery even idle either lasts you 3 days or 3 hours.
- The fact that LG is so technologically challenged they cant be bothered providing their (customers) with the latest update for the android OS (which is still in the works so we are stuck with the pretty much beta version.
Overall: The features of the phone make it well worth the low cost. But the horrible service from LG and the known defects of this phone i.e. the battery and the 3g shutting itself off and too important to ignore.
Im on my second one of this phone because lg couldnt fix the defects.
Anonymous, 13 Jul 2010I have had this phone for just over a month. Over the past week 3 black lines have appeared ac... moreHi Anonymous,
I've had the same problem (the 3 lines on the screen problem) as you just one day into using this phone. It's because you plugged the charger in before shutting the Wi-Fi down. That was what happened to me. You need to get it fixed.
On the other hand, while this phone has its multiple cons, it does have a few pros. I'm just irritated that those wi-fi apps on the Market won't install. The apps to keep my wi-fi alive. And all the Google apps (i'm not even using it, it's automatic) keep using my data. Any help?
I am looking for a phone that is Anderoid (or similar) with atleast a 5mp camera, but I can't afford more than about £100 payg or £15 a month. I had a little play in a shop today and this phone seemed great, I couldn't believe the features for the money, but some reviews are a bit negative. For £15 a month (25m) UL texts, net and 300mins is it the right choice?
i brought a LG GW620 android phone 3mths ago and stuck with Android 1.5.no Bluetooth FTP, many program can use from android market,often no signal,LG menu slow like a snail.since then no upgrade to 2.1,when i heard HTC,Samsung and SE have update for their android phone i think to myself i have make a wrong choice buying a LG. LG doesnt listen to customer at all..no after sales service.They only want to profit and market share. LG GW620 is their first android phone pls make it properly to give user confident to buy another LG in the future.example like Moto Milestone.Stupid LG...i advice anyone considering LG pls reconsider...Btw,im buying a HTC Desire.
Overall a good phone, but has details such as the slowness of the camera, and flash, plus the average quality of the filled applications and operating system version (which has apparently just been mounted without more).
Of course I will be keeping the price as LG's first attempt with Android
great smartphone, cool GPS and Wifi functions. google applications are amazing. android market is a heaven like thing. after all if you dont use bluetooth file transfer this phone is one of the greatest android phone ever made, otherwise you dont have to buy it because you cant do bluetooth file transfer with this phone.
+nice battery life with 2G Only
+amazing look hardware design
+nice video and photo quality
+google sky, google talk, google translate and other google applications makes this phone perfect enough.
+you can find your applications in android market after hours.
Update to android 1.6 was announced for may 2010. There are nos news about it since this date. Thanx LG...

Have you try the Bluetooth File Transfer App? You can download it from the Market. Is on communications top free.
I have had this phone for just over a month. Over the past week 3 black lines have appeared across the screen which will not go away. I have tried resetting phone to factory settings, have taken battery and sim card out but nothing has worked. This is actually the 2nd phone i have had as the keyboard stopped working with the 1st. Going to take it back to the virgin media shop and am hoping they will allow me to change brand as do not want to be stuck with this phone for 2 years.
Android 1.5 does not support bluetooth transfer. The bluetooth is just there for headsets (Music and calling) I believe a Android 1.6 (Donut)upgrade will be available soon. Keep an eye on the android forums.
there must be someone out there who has resolved this or is it not possible to have anything transfered onto this fone from another fone via bluetooth. If so then what is the point of having a bluetooth option on the fone. HELP, its doing my head in.
