Fly, 13 Jan 2010Og goood....no radio, come on.....we'ar in 2008, and not the aliens bringed us the radioWhy do you want radio so much? Aren't you smart enough to download some music to your phone? Maybe you are the alien.
Loh, 13 Jan 2010I own the LG KS10, the battery life is lousy. Play music or games battery goes flat without w... moreYour so right, my friend! I don't know why those LG people even bothered to add that media player support for this phone. When i listen music the battery goes dead in less than 2 hours. Ridiculous. I'd better buy myself a dedicated mp3 player, or my battery will be long gone(dead for good) before the end of the year.
Dune, 13 Jan 2010This phone is exactly what i have been looking for, however i have one question - why no mp3... moreWhy do you say NO mp3? It supports mp3 up to a certain bitrate: a tried mp3 with a bitrate of 64, 128 and 192. All worked fine. It doesn't work with bitrate of 320 kbps or variabile bitrate. It also play mid and amr files by default. Maybe your speaker is dead. Try to install another audio player like OGGPlayer (it plays lots of files, even ogg and flac files).
loll, 13 Jan 2010can anyone tell me something... i was impressed with lg chocolate design n i wanted to buy da... moreLG Chocolate is not Joy, nor the other way around. Chocolate is more for ladies, Joy is more for gents. Chocolate is more shiny, good looking, fashionable phone. Joy is more hard edged, colder, monolithical. Chocolate is liter, slicker, soft-touched. Joy is like a brick or rock: heavier&rough, thougher, like a bulldozer, almost like a redneck. With Joy you can't compromise-that's just the way it is-and you'll have to take it or leave it, it's all or nothing. There's no mystery in LG Joy:WYSIWYG. LG Joy is a HSDPA phone (3G networks are available and comes with fast internet connection), Chocolate is a 2,5G GSM networks only. Chocolate is the perfect gift for someone you love,and Joy is...well...complicated.
Google apps package is garbage on this phone: Google Maps takes like forever to load up, YouTube page loads up but i can't play/watch any video, Google search takes you to the default (crapy) web browser of the phone. The only decent thing is GMAIL - actually pretty smart built-up.
If you wanna web surf I recommend Opera mini browser for phones: it's faster, more stable and got that smart option: it an automatically adapt any web page to fit your phone screen. It will load Softpedia page in less than 10 sec, when in mobile mode, and in less than 1 min when in normal mode. (these timings are available for the first access of that page, subsequent accessing of the same web page will be even faster)
Alan, 13 Jan 2010Does this phone have a GPS receiver? As LG website says.."With the handset’s built-in GPS Navi... moreNo GPS on this phone. I know it 'cause i own one for about an year now. It does have another option though: (built-in) Google Maps-it works only with an HSDPA internet connection, that means you need a 3G network.
If you plan car driving and using this LG as a GPS, forget it. Google Maps is so slow, even close near-by a 3G antenna, that you'll wish to break up&break out your phone (maybe smash it against a wall).
Anonymous, 13 Jan 2010how thick is this phone? i like em' thin, but lg seems to not be saying much about this phone... moreIf you really like slim'n slick phones, LG is not for you. This phone is almost the same thickness of a regular package of cigarettes. It's pretty heavy too. I had a Sonny-Ericsson K300-it was twice liter than this one.This LG Joy is heavier than some PDAs i've seen.
Anonymous, 13 Jan 2010still not seen in Brunei.Probably you won't find this phone in your country 'cause is not worldwide available and marketed. I had mine specially ordered and delivered from Sweden. This phone is marketed only in Scandinavia (Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Iceland, and possibly Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, China). The package was really something: very top-notch box, like business phones. Funny thing, the owner's manual (actually a small book-about 200 pages) is not available in English, French or German (can you
believe that!!!), available only in Finnish, danish, Norwegian, chinese languages!?! When i called my local LG supplier, they gave me an owner's manual in my native language (a poor quality photocopy, actually), but it was for another LG phone (LG Chocolate or something). Can you believe that nerve?!
Good phone for the right price (about 120euros without any subscription or any kind of mobile comm service contract). An equivalent Nokia or Sony is double the price.
The freehand set is great: mic is good, clear sound-so i've been told be people i've talked to; earphones are clear-sounded with volume regulator on the connection wire. Too bad this phone doesn't have a (mini)USB connection, just same old LG connection system.
This phone is somewhat bulky, even for 2008. The slide is somewhat loose-not so precise as Samsung or Nokia phones. It has no radio, but i don't mind. If you're buying this phone, you ain't goonna buy it for the radio-i'm sure of that. BE CAREFULL! The baterry is mounted (glued, sticked) to the back face of the phone. If you wanna change the baterry, well, you'll have to look for an original LG one, 'cause it has an unique mounting system on the phone. Too bad this phone doesn't have a wi-fi network connection. The HSDPA is great: I downloaded some 50MB of data in less than 10 min. The SYMBIAN is not so great, is S60, 3rd ed-sometimes it restarts the phone for no apparent reason. When downloading via HSDPA this phone heats up pretty badly (especially the battery).
The Symbian really sucks: it doesn't measure the battery charge precisely (when i talk on the phone it looses 2, i mean TWO, lines of baterry charge, and ten minutes later those 2 lines are back again-VERY WEIRD). When there are only 3 lines of baterry charge left you'll have max. 1 hour till the baterry will be dead. My advice: always have a charger or a connection cable with you, 'cause you gonna need it for sure.
georgios, 13 Jan 2010this phone has serious battery problems.go for a nokia n95 8g that has decent battery life.i o... moreYeah, the battery is not so great-especially if you're listening music-but it works. What did you with that battery? A Li-Polymer battery isn't a nuclear reactor, you know!?
this phone has serious battery problems.go for a nokia n95 8g that has decent battery life.i own lg ks10 joy for a year now and i bought a second battery cause the first one doesn't work
I need an anti virus for this phone with a free update online.
