Windows phone is extraordinary, the experience is very smooth and the metro look is really cool. This phone is the best gadget i ever bought,and i think i am more happy about it than i was for my plasma. It really is an excelent phone and OS.
I had been using this phone for 4 weeks now and I can claim this phone to be way ahead than iPhone and any other smart phone. (Previously I was an iPhone user).
Excellent reception, No call drops,Security features, smooth phone browsing, Sub search options, speed, W7 Facebook, Easy previous call lookup while on the call are some exceptional features. I never expected LG coming to this level.
I can guarantee that if LG can place this product in the market in a different way, Steve Jobs will have to find another Job. Windows 7 can stop Apple taking it's customers on Ride.....

While the 8650 supports both GSM and CDMA based standards, the 8250 is strictly GSM.http://www.anandtech.com/show/3710/the-htc-droid-incredible-review-clearly-better-than-the-nexus-one/5

Anonymous, 06 Dec 2010Oh then u are a damn fool it is in no comparison with galaxy sI have tried the Galaxy S, and it feel like a plastic toy.. try to hold the Optimus it's built like a tank!
Anyone kw how to check data usage and outgoing call made using this phone?
i think this is the first great lg since they launch their mobile phones on market...because it's WP7....i really like it...:)
I got the LG Optimus about a week ago. I had an iPhone 3G before that. It looks and feels great. Build quality is very impressive and WP7 is very smooth! I highly recommend it.
For those who keep saying it doesn't have video calling, it just came out and all ready they are doing updates scheduled for sometime in Jan 2011. Let's just wait and see, but we do know one thing they are better than Sony Ericsson who can't get anything right and Blackberry who is still making stone age phones.
well from what i saw from the optimus 1, i really cant wait to see the optimus7
After both searching the internet and recently speaking to lg customer service Lg says bluetooth file transfer from other bluetooth devices is not currently possible only bluetooth in car connection is. Microsoft phone updates are rumored to begin early 2011 to hopefully correct this.I have also read that MS will be adding features like voice to the navigation app for safer driving. I guess we'll know more when the updates begin.
Just got this phone a day ago and I like it a lot. I initally hesitated to buy it, with HTC Desire having a lower price here. After playing with both a bit, I realised that the user experience this phone provides suits me better than that of the Desire.
Almost everything related to is is just stunning: from the smooth fonts, the stylish colors of the UI to the details in the Office / People hub. The keyboard is amazing. I was able to type really fast on it even though I'm not skilled at all with typing on touchscreens.
The only drawbacks I've noticed are:
- you can't remove Windows Live contacts from your people hub
- No smart dialing
I wanted to congratulate LG for this phone, its a great phone, no freeze, so smooth and fast, so many useful applications, my only problem is that radio only and only works with a headphone, and actually its easy to learn, i'm not a techie guy so i dont do that much of copy paste, but if you do lots of copy paste wait for it to come then buy this phone
I hope that lg or Microsoft can provide a down loadable firmware fix for this bluetooth issue.
It's strange that my optimus 7 pairs with my cars bluetooth hands free kit and works perfectly, yet it can't send or receive files to another bluetooth handset. It identifies all other sources of bluetooth devices, but fails to send or receive information.
The only other quirk I have is not being able to personalize my ring tones with my own music.
Other than that everything else with this phone is quite good and I especially like it's navigation features. I have downloaded and installed several apps without any issues thus far. It's basically a compact computer, GPS navigator,organizer,FM radio if you connect to the 3.5mm jack,camera phone and prety much anything else you want it to be with 16 gig of internal memory all rolled into one. Operation is smooth and quick enough. Speaker quality is nothing to rant about but acceptable. Expect to charge the battery daily if you are using it to it's full potential. As with all new phones there are trade offs but generally speaking LG seems to be heading in the right direction.
Just fix the bluetooth and ring tone issues for me and I'll be even happier with my new toy.
Owner, 26 Nov 2010Review update: 1-It will not wake up and ring the Alarm Clock 2-Internet Explorer with just ... moreJust 6 tabs? That makes it a no-buy certainly, I can't open every site on internet simultaneously :)
Review update to review update:
Bluetooth is not working. I can't pair this device to anything, not even to another Optimus 7. I really cannot believe this!!!
Sina, 22 Nov 2010It has 4 GIGA BITS (!) RAM, and 4 GIGA BITS ROM...which translates to 512MBYTES of RAM, and 51... more1byte = 8bits
1GByte = 8Gbits
1Gbit = 1/8 GByte = 1024/8 MByte = 128 MB
4Gbits = 512 MB
1-It will not wake up and ring the Alarm Clock
2-Internet Explorer with just 6 tabs
3-The worst scenario that happened to me, is that it froze, and needed to RESTART. (I added a new tile to the start menu, and it didn't responded anymore to commands.)
4-It kicks me sometimes out of installed apps.
