I just bought the phone and its super great!
- Size is just right, very slick, unique design
- Images are super rich in color and sharpness
- Interface is very easy and user friendly
- Managing your contacts, music and other files are superb
- Speed is ok, tolerable
- Internet browsing is ok, tolerable
- Camera for photo and video are ok, you just need to know the right settings
- Price is just right compared to other high-end phones
- Battery don't last that long, you need to recharge every now and then
- Fingerprint nightmare
- Radio is hard on getting the stations' frequency
In Philippines, when you ask the price from the mall, the usual answer is P29,000. I ask the lady if there is a discount when I will buy it in cash, I was able to get it at P25,700 - not bad, compared to other high-end phones. :)

Actualy LG is not as big as you think, especialy when you compare it to the Omnia HD or even the Iphone.The Chocolate is very slim and fits in your hand very nice(my hands are average size).The UI is slow but not painfuly slow and it more than makes up whit its smooth animations and great looks.So the question is Apple or Chocolate(I personaly prefer sweets to fruits:)
Thank you for posting the specs. Still would like to know what processor it uses? The LG website is so bad I can not see anything but flash animations there. Makes me reluctent to buy LG :(

vince, 05 Jan 2010the LG BL40 only cost about 27,000 pesos here in philippines..aww still expensive!
but i want this phone! where can we but one here?
How to set the threaded view of text messages in the order of time instead of received texts at the top n sent texts at the bottom?
Anonymous, 02 Jan 2010my bl40 's screen goes blank during incoming and outgoing call and the only lock key also does... morescreen turns off becoz,when u keep the phone on ur ear ,being a touchscreen,wud open any app or even cancel the call by just a touch of ur cheek or ear
the same happens in iphone
Ive had the lg bl40 now for a couple of days. Think the phone is great all the features are fantasic, screen is like no other. Battery life very poor. But you cant have it all. LG are unique within themselves. Am normaly a Nokia user but have been converted to LG. Have no complaints about the phone, yes it is big but its big for a reason. I also have the Iphone and have to say this BL40 comes close.
my bl40 's screen goes blank during incoming and outgoing call and the only lock key also doesnt work!!during that particular time..do anyone know why?i ve checked settings and all manual there is no troubleshooting like that...
How do set up picture messagin on this phone? cant send or receive them, only text and internet work.
Btw the battery life used to suck but I did an update and it seems to last longer now.
Just bought the phone, like the review said it is a fingerprint magnet. also due to the narrow phone size,when u hold it in your hand and your fingers curl round the phone, your fingers are very easy to touch the touch screen and accidentally activate the menu icon. so be careful.
I have one.......
now sending back to the showroom for replacement ......
net is very slow, and used to restart automatically.....
