OptimusL3, 13 Jan 2013One thing I do buy this phone is that samsung here in our country (Philippines) is very common... moreI agree! Lots ob people are using samsung. almost everyone's palm holds samsung phone. If i have a money i'll buy LG mobile just to be separated from the majority and to be unique.

Many individuals were using this phone. And I chose this Optimus L3 E405 its because of bigger screen and style as compared to galaxy pocket. :)
Sorry for my idiot question because i'm new with androids. But doest it run apps like 'kik messenger, whatsapp...?" to be honest i'm only looking for one phone with android because i want these apps (and gps), i want to be connected and chating with my friends dont matter where they are and i am(i'm going to travel to another country for some weeks).
And reading some comments i see that the music player has not a good sound. It means the quality or low vol?
As english is not my native language, sorry for any mistake and thanks for your attention :)
OptimusL3, 12 Jan 2013The sound is not so loud (downloading equalizers or sound enhancers will make sound loud). Scr... morethanks man for your patience and time .. im gonna get it although my friends are talking me out of buying Lg mobile phones because as they say its not that good of a brand at my country (egypt) and i should buy the samsung galaxy pocket(a little bit expensive) as samsung is more trusted brand but im convinced by the e405 and im betting on it as i see that samsung pocket is overrated and expensive
mus3afa, 12 Jan 2013thanks man for clarification the dual stand by feature and its like what i wanted and with you... moreThe sound is not so loud (downloading equalizers or sound enhancers will make sound loud). Screen resolution is low because its size is 240x320. But graphics, well, good to me (just in price range).
mus3afa, 12 Jan 2013thanks for your reply and your time i'm gonna get god's willing but one last question and bear... moreIf and only if you will not use the internal memory as the primary storage of saving your photos, music or any files. App2SD cannot move apps to SD Card, only to internal memory (maybe because it is on this phone, I don't know. I have no problem in texting, but my problem is the phone when called. Sometimes when I'm doing other things in my phone, then someone calls me, it takes time before I see the call. It rings and rings then the call will appear (maybe because of using applications before call).
Listening to music, well its good. But it would be better if you would download equalizer to listen beautifully because this phone don't come with an equalizer.
I haven't tested twitter, MSN, and yahoo in this phone. I have used facebook in this phone and its fine, no problem, wifi connection will be the one to determine fast and slow connections (for me).
Gaming, well, its fine also. But there are some games that lags when played on this phone (e.g. fruit ninja(sometimes only), tower defense). 1GB is enough maybe if you are not high-MB game lover :)

mus3afa, 11 Jan 2013thanks for the reply man and what about the dual sim issue few told me that the two sims arent... moreyou only choose the sim to make calls from and send msgs but the other one will be available as well and you can switch between them with a simple touch , as long as you are not making or receiving a call on one sim the other will be available
mus3afa, 11 Jan 2013all four of these phons are in my cash range so i asked l3 405 users for their opinion because... morethe sim thing is just normal , they simply chose to give the choice of making which sim active over making you choose every single time you made a phone call or sent a msg so for me this isn't really bad that is quite good , but as being active goes i have no complains about that because as they are yet to make cross network\sim call waiting , you can't really expect your phone to receive a call from one sim while making a call from another
mus3afa, 11 Jan 2013guys please i want your help i'm confused between gettin' LG L3 405 , alcatel ot-985 ,alcatel ... moreOriginally when i went to buy my phone i was going for the Alcatel o-918 but found the lg only slightly higher with a better cam if i recall , but so far no regrets what so ever , i can't speak for the alcatel cause i didn't try it , but the lg is really nice with a truly wonderful battery life and smooth experience overall actually
nagaraja , 11 Jan 2013this mobile camer is not good. internet working is very sloow based on my experience with this phone for about a week now using my wifi and the occasional network surfing the speed is actually great
nickboy, 11 Jan 2013...I'm afraid this LG Optimus L3 E405 is not a better dual phone to pick..when 1 sim is active... morewell i don't really think that you would find a dual sim phone that doesn't do that , because if you are making a phone call from one sim and someone calls you on the other one , what will happen then ? with the speaker phone being the same one that you use for calls (as it is with every one else these days) you will go deaf pretty soon.
so until they make a cross sim call waiting this is all they will do
the battery is what ? it's the most likable feature of this phone , i have used this phone for games , chatting , music and phone calls and the battery kept going for a day and half before hitting the 15% , if your battery runs out quicker get another one from your supplier
saz, 11 Jan 2013Hw to screenshots in e405 Plz reply press the volume up and down together for about 2 secs and you will have your screenshot ready to edit and save or share via msging or what ever app you have that you can share through , in my case whatsapp
OptimusL3, 11 Jan 2013Yes. It has an internal memory of 1GB. The dual sim is dual stand by, not dual active. If SIM... morethanks for your reply and your time i'm gonna get god's willing but one last question and bear with me please i need it mostly for calling and texting ,listening to music and for social networking facebook ,twitter , yahoo , MSN may be through one app like imo chat , checking out different websites and other activities like that and may be playing a light game now and then so i want to know if the 1 GB internal memo. going to hold up those kind of apps and if apps2sd can solve this problem
mus3afa, 11 Jan 2013thanks for the reply man and what about the dual sim issue few told me that the two sims arent... moreYes. It has an internal memory of 1GB.
The dual sim is dual stand by, not dual active. If SIM1 is active, then SIM2 is in standby mode. SIM switching will change from active to standby and vice versa. During calls, if your friend calls you on SIM1, SIM2 will not be active or unavailable so it will not receive any calls and text messages until the call has stopped. Sometimes, in my case, the other SIM became inactive, I don't know if its the phone's problem or my network because sometimes I get weak signals that leads for SIM inactivity, though sometimes when I'm browsing, there are times that one SIM is temporarily inactive but for only few seconds only then active again.
Another feature that is not good in this phone is that you CAN'T move applications in the SD Card, only to phone and internal memory. This is the thread:
But I'm satisfied with it as I do not play many games in my phone. Another thing is the system memory is only 157.23mb so you must move unnecessary applications that must not be installed in the phone memory to free some space. But again, I do love this phone. Now, my phone performs faster than before. I don't know why, maybe because of less resource usage.
shreejit, 10 Jan 2013it is the best phone go its price range.who they are saying that it doesn't have file manager ... morethanks for the reply man and what about the dual sim issue few told me that the two sims arent active at the same time meaning u need to make one active and the other will be unavailable and this wont fix my problem about gettin two mobiles one for work and another for fun so can u tell me if the two sims are active at the same time or not .. and one other thing the problem of the internal memo. and what if its not really one GB and cant hold some few apps .. thanks in advance
