> In reply to mus3afa @ 2013-01-11 11:09 from fq1} - click to readIf 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 :)

> In reply to mus3afa @ 2013-01-10 20:16 from fq1} - click to readthe 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

> In reply to nickboy @ 2012-12-27 03:51 from Mfxa - click to readwell 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

> In reply to mus3afa @ 2013-01-10 21:42 from fq1} - click to readYes. 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:
http://support.lgforum.com/lg/...imus_l3_e405

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.

> In reply to mus3afa @ 2013-01-09 21:25 from NrHd - click to readFor me, LG's quite good, though facing some problems like the camera is not as expected (using camera apps will enhance the quality of the picture). Performance, well uhhmmm, optimal. Sometimes it lags when many processes and services running like in my case (playing music w/ n7player). RAM is only 384mb so it is. The battery life, I can't say but I'm not that satisfied (maybe because my battery drained a day after buying this phone). Overall, if in voting results, I vote the DESIGN - 9.0; Features - 7.0; Performance - 5.5

I'm satisfied with what I've got and what I have (just because this phone is my cash's range when I planned to buy a new phone). LG's good, but the decision is in your hands....
