just wanted to add. It has a wonderful logbook.it stores 120 last calls,40 each of missed, dialled and received.
sms capacity is limited by what I dont know but stored around 70 sms in phone memory before it gave an error.
just a trick toincrease battery life in any mobile (for those who dont know it already)
1 - decrease display brightness to minium
2- dont use vibration unless needed
3- switch of GPRS or bluetooth when not needed.
4- shut down keypad tone
5- decrease display light time to minimum.
6- ring tone volume set to minimum required
7- switch off phone when not required
8- avoid using phones in area with very poor network..(you will not be communicate even if you get a call so why consume battery)
9- li ion can be charged before full discharge so doit regulary and do a full charge after full discharge once a month
10- never over charge too frequently. once a week by mistake isok but not more.use phone at optimum temperature to increase battery life.
So rest is ok. enjoy much better streaming video on LG kg 300 than on SE phones..maybe its 262k display does the trick.
bought this phone on the day of its launch in India.Did not find any reviews in english on the net so could not do much research.
Overall a good phone but of course nothing like nokia or SE.Its just that it has almost all the features an ideal mobile should have at this price except
1- No document viewer
2- no 3rd party software support
3- difficult PC sync
4- no TV out as in samsung models
5- non exciting games
6- not so easy GPRS connectivity
7- no FLASH, macromode or lens cover
Apart from this this is a gem of a phone.
keyboard is ok, soon you get accustomed to it. The menu is typical of LG and SE types very very friendly.Blue tooth is wonderful, sound quality excellent from speaker phone too. Equalizer is good, mp3 playback volume is not as loud as nokia but quality definitely better than some nokia sets.
battery life is a concern undoubtedly.I knew it beforehand.But somethings have to be compromised if you need a FM recorder, 2MP camera with unlimited recording, voice ringtone, excellent screen, very good video playback(thats what i wanted - this phone has a video playback with full screen and you can fast forward and rewind the movie and also adust its speed of playback 1/2 to 4x....now isnt it wonderful.
Its much lighter than nokia models and its caveats have to be ignored in light of its unique features.
Its for those who need a 2MP camera phone with FM recording, memory card expansion slot,dedicated music and camera keys, conversation recording,USB charging, bluetooth, full screen playback(excellent) and live in area of good signal quality (that increases the battery life to 21/2 days - my battery lasts 2 days and if i dont use a camera it lasts 21/2 days.
Somebody gave this phone 5 5 5 points , I think it deserves more. rest is foryou all to decide.
I bought this fone after doing lot of research. I think the camera and sound quality are good. thr r some "not so useful" features in this fone. But additional features r good rite..eventhough we dont use thm often. Battery life is a prob. just lasts 4 one day. display is cool and big. overall it is an above average fone.
hi , guys just wanted to put a few words
ppl don't fall a trap by just cmparing the price of the handset to this prize u can opt for a se k 750 it's a gem of a phone with great music though it's not a branded walkman , just try using the hpm 70 earphones with it im sure u all will love the music , well , no hard feelings it's just a sugesstion from my side .
hai frnds .i just went 4 the phone.but one of my frnd brought it and i looked 4 da features .Lcd is brighter and sharper than other LGs(i like that).but it is such a slow responding mobile i never seen B4(it won hav any memory added).v Pressed one it need more than a sec to respond.and it looks BAD & buit N Quality is V.very poor.
$ me if im spending 10000/- Bugs then phone must show it know.
plzzz can anyone tell me about the audio and video format supported by this n is the sound quality is bad.plzzzzzzzzzz reply.
sir one question
can we minimize the mp3 player in this phone hw is the camera clarity and sound clarity pls zz replyyyyyyyyyyhw is the sound and camera clarity . it is worth buying i m nt speaking about price but i need quality like se walkman phones
I bought this phone after reading all your comments. I am sad. Its not good compraed to the price. The MP3 player sounds bad and the sounds is jerky. Also the keyboard is not accurate. Finally, the software is extremely unfriendly. What else can u expect from a phone thats not even made by LG (someone in Taiwan makes it!). My piece is 5 days old and i am ready to seell it back for Rs7000.
Should stick with Nokia, or Motoroal (if you want a change!)
this piece soundz awesome!!
hey does this costs 13k in hyd?? instead of 10k introductory price, Is it so!
Is there no way I could get this for 10k aah,
how about other that hyderabad??
plz update mee!! thx
To all who have this phone:
How do you think about its keyboard?
I think it looks very fragile...
Do you have any problems with it?
Guys, Trust me this is a GEM of a phone! have tried all the features, mp3/usb/camera still(2 MP yes its a 2MP and NOT 1.3)/Video recording/FM/Bluetooth everything is so perfect.GO FOR IT!!! ,Dont Wait for the reviews etc , go to any of the shop and take demo by yourself. I bet your hand will automatically move towards your wallet to own this piece. Trust me it happened with me.
Just a word of cuaution , The MRP of this set in Hyd is Rs.13000 and the salesman was ssaying it may become costlier. I mean 9999 is just for initial launch.
I would like does this phone got fullscreen video and photos, how much video recording time etc.
hey gsm arena.... kindly review this phone.. so many out there waiting for.... the phone really an DYNAMITE ....the specifications are awesome...all for a price tag of 10k..i heard it had got usb charging.i planned to buy N72...but now only dynamite...
I am thinking to buy this one,
But not sure of it's battery quality & sound intensity of ringtone volume.
If u have this, plz tell me of that.
