I have this phone for some time now and I did find just one small mistake. Why did they not include a camera flash light?!
But when you take off this small mistake it is one of the few phones that you can buy now on budget without regret.
It´s fast and you don´t have to recharge it every day like most of the high class phones these days. It has everything what you could want from a mobil phone.
So if you want to buy a fast phone, with WIFI, GPS, a great screen a.d. you really should buy this one. For that kind of money it´s a great deal.
GT 540 LOOKs better then this..............and missing video call camera....
I guess this phone shows that even low CPU clock speed mobile phone could act better than 1GHz CPU mobile phone. It exceptionally matches between the H/W and S/W. Actually I've been using this phone for 2 months, and haven't gotten any problem when I'm with this phone. Of course, it could have some disadvanges but that covers over with this price. I'd want to say..."Price-to-superb performance phone"
i think its p0ssible for it to support flash.. Its not the cpu speed's fault, my 5320 plays flash videos straight from the browser out-of-the-box and its only clocked at 369mhz only. So its not true that its cpu's fault, i think there's just a software for it.
"But when you’re buying cheap, you know you have to make compromises".
This is what people must understand about Android, about the freedom to choose. There's no such thing as fragmentation.
owned one since the day of its release, I think of it as Jr. Nexus 1
@Amol, I own a LG Optimus P500 since the second week of it's release. It has flash on the box and on their site, but it WONT be supported as the processor is the same as worldwide Optimus P500. An Optimus cannot have flash 10.1 , whether in India or in the world as it is based on ARMv6 CPU which doesn't support flash. I have tried all the unofficial installation packages and none work. And official LG market doesn't list it either. Get it? No . Flash . For . Optimus . One . In . India . Either .
LG Optimus One in India comes with Adobe Flash 10.1 pre installed on the device...
Below are the few links to support my claim...

very good low-budget android smartphone. its like the "LG Cookie" of the smartphone. i find the internet speed and web-browsing excellent on this phone
Don't understand why the xperia x8 wasn't mentioned as an alternative...
Any chance to upgrade to android 2.3 in the future? I mean officially...
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2010why the hell does it record video at 18fps , even nokia n82 can record very good videos at 30f... moreActually, it's not the CPU that does the video encoding but another chip. So the processor clockspeed doesn't necessarily say much about video recording resolution/framerate.
why the hell does it record video at 18fps , even nokia n82 can record very good videos at 30fps that too with 329Mhz and 128mb ram....
