is this device worthy or not?
I am planning to buy one tomorrow!
haha im buying 1 in like 2 day, a lot of bad comment but im willing 2 give it a try, who noes, mightt b gwd 4 me wish me luck =]
I bought this phone recently because I was looking for a replacement. Even though it was cheap at AUD$300, I am somewhat disappointed. The predictive text for messaging is the worst I have experienced for a mobile phone, many common words simply are non-existant in this phones vocabulary.
The touchscreen can often be unresponsive.
The 8mp camera is also less than I expected based on the rave reviews it got.
I took some comparison shots to compare side by side with my Nokia 6220 and the Nokia takes better quality photos even though it's only 5mp, the Nokia photos are less grainy and the colors more lifelike. The autofocus on Renoir is less accurate too because sometimes the results are blurry photos.
This phone is amazing just got it yesterday camra great. touch amazing the net is really good and fast wigets are fun.... just having sooo mutch fun the only thing i dodnt like so far is it you touch it to hard it seems to lose some colour it comes bak tho dodnt do it to mutch have a light hand :D

Zzan, 21 Jan 2010I've had phone for bout 2 months, great phone, much better than KU990. I've had no problem ... moredude i have the same problem with windows7.im gonna down load windows8 and see how it goes.ive been with lg for the last 3yrs now and one thing i have to say is although they make great fones there pc suite is poo.better off using mass storage option to transfer
First l will compare this Renoir with rival Pixon:
-Renoir has xenon flash(much better then Pixons Led);
-Renoir has a bit smaller body then Pixon and much better feel in hands;
-Renoir has simple but fast interface,so usage is faster.Pixon has better widget and eyelike interface;
-Renoir has better sound in video recording it is actually stereo so you can enjoy in PC while watching them;
-Renoirs screen is a bit smaller then Pixons so this is not good;
-Aps like facebook or twitter are working perfectly on both model, kinetic scrolling has a bit smoother on LG but Pixon is all most same here;
-And for last even the most important is that Renoir has WI-FI and it is fast,Pixon does not have it-so no Hot SPots for Samsung here.
This is some small but simple compare of kronos1
I've had this cell for almost a year now, and i advice everybody considering bying this, not to. When i bought it in Denmark for about 500$, i started out by being happy about it. A month later the screen was totally wrecked, although i had barely used it, and had been very carefull with it. Now the camera is good for a cellphone, when used properly. The blitz doesn't really work, since it's way to strong so take pictures when theres a good light. The touch screen is also a little "slacky". If you're in a hurry, you might tend to press twice since the it sometimes react 0,5 or 1 second after you've touched it. A half-decent cell, but DEFINETELY not worth the money.

I've had no problem transfering files(photos, videos) to PC when i used Widnows XP. I installed Windows 7 yesterday but not i'm having problem. I'm using LG PC Suite that came wtih the phone, V 4.G.3.77.090206.
In Windows 7 it detect and connects the phone without any problem, but it WON'T let me allow the memory card, only the phone memory. ???
Is this known problem on Win 7? do i need new software or something? any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
pls help. i tried to copy some files from the external to the internal memory. while copying i got a screen saying that there wasn't enough memory and it blocked on that screen. i tried to remove the battery, but not when i try to switch on, the phone gets stuck on the logo screen. it keeps rebooting itself but i can switch on totally to be able to delete some files from the internal memory. i tried several combinations. no sd car, no sim, pluged to charger but nothing seems to work. pls give me some advise
deENo Lee, 05 Jan 2010is this phone built in 8GB internal memory?
somebody can help me to confirm it?
n really thi... moreThe phone doesn't come with an internal 8GB memory but there are available phone package that come with 8GB MicroSDcard. i got mine with 8GB a year ago and i am happy with it. As a phone it is okay, the same ol' primary functions. But as a Camera this phone is Awesome. I compared the pictures with my friend's Sony cyberShot 8.1 mp camera, but the quality of this phone camera is untouched due to the Schneider Kreuznach. The Slo-mo recording is a Plus in my opinion.
As far the GARMIN Capability i do not know but it does have A-GPS.
A word of caution if you are going to buy this phone is that it does LAG and it does occasionally crash for no apparent reason for which only thing to do is to take the battery out, put it back in and then turn it back on. Sometimes it might happen even twice a week. It is very annoying when that happens.
