Yep... there is definite improvement in the audio quality. The mid range tones are a bit more well defined just as in Nokia 5130. Out of the 20 levels now it is advisable to use only levels 6 or 7 or a maximum of 8 using my Sony MDR-ED12 earphones. What I used to get using the purebypass equalizer can be achieved without even turning on the equalizer.
haven't tried out java yet. Hoping that java won't disappoint me either. All of a sudden listening to music on it has become much more fun.
-FM radio reception has increased two folds. believe it or not, I can now enjoy wireless FM radio right inside my house.
-Can now set GIF files morethan 500KB as wallpapers. Previously the imit was 500KB.
-Still no call record feature. But no worries, if LG can fix all these in a single firmware update, then they can also fix this with ease.
Once again thank you LG for treating us like you really Care. For me today, Life's good...
Good New all GM200 bro's...
Just updated to the latest firmware today...
I'm just tinkering with the functions here and there and the things that caught my eye instantly are.
1) Player resume during an incoming call solved. Now even after hanging up a call, the mp3 player resumes playback as normal.
2) this is one of the biggest hyped up issues with this phone and many others have taken much advantage of its shortcoming. yes i'm talking about background playback or minimising capability for FM radio (what a relief?).
3) I don't know if it's because i'm overwhelmed by the excitement. I think the audio quality has improved much better and so did the audio output. All the equalizer settings appear much mor distinct and especially the mid range has improved a lot. Watch out Nokia 5130, here comes a true competition for you.
4) Can't say anything about improvements in vide quality but one thing is for sure, the video audio shows much more improvement quality wise. Playback als showing a bit more smoothness with mp4 encoded with xvid codec..
Well that's all the new features I could find till now. Guess i'll just keep on looking and let you know if there is any other change. Guys just update to the latest firmware as soon as possible and enjoy these premium benefits...

The GM200 irony...
My GM200 can play almost all popular music formats including HE-AAC, LC-AAC, WAV etc but the problem I found out was that there is no way that I can add them to my mp3 player list. instead it plays very fine on the audio player and the quality is stunning even at 100Kbps. Mind you, the only difference between the mp3 player and the audio player is the playlist feature and equalizer.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Nope...whatever he said about gm200 is true(atleast to the best of my knowledge). He may have exaggerated a bit when comparing it to other phones. But, abt gm200 he has been spot on.

Come on, get back to your senses bro... Your are reading in between the lines. Atleast just let me konw which part I fake about. All the statements made here about this phone are true to the best of my beliefs and if I have gone wrong somewhere, kindly let me konow instead of jumping into any blind conclusions.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I dont think so nevin lie about gm200 statement in this furom..coz,i'm gm200 user too..
now i've chance to compare nok.5130xm with lg gm200,result of lg gm 200 is more natural.
Jinu , 07 Nov 2009Hi Guys ...LG GM 200 sucks man..never buy this mobile , try to find some other LG mobile or go... moreHi Jinu... we are all aware of this phone's shortcomings but what you should try and do is love this mobile for the features it possesses. I too get a bit pi%#ed off at time just hoping if this phone could have done much more. But as the truth goes, i got morethan what I actually expected. Compared to the other dynamite phones, this is a jewel and I love this phone for that fact. The thing is, this is quite a unique phone and is better that you don't compare it with other phones. It does lack a lot of features but gives something else.
Something I should keep in mind and gets me into trouble at times..
When was the firmware released?
Is it available at the LG care? and what are the changes made from the previous version?
Hi Guys ...LG GM 200 sucks man..never buy this mobile , try to find some other LG mobile or go 4 nokia ,problems on this model goes a long way,,, Cannot install any applications and by chance if it gets installed then those application wont work,
radio sucks - cannot do anything if radio is switched ON ,its like when radio is ON its not a mobile its a radio device.Multiprocessing SUCKS IN THIS MODEL
most of the java applications fail to get installed , navigation on the browser sucks , need to click thousand times to scroll a single page, most java games controls not working ..Only 2 themes available and cannot install any other themes , so u r stuck with only 2 themes 4 life..sms composing is horrible..
Well new firmware released (which is not available on net)(LG has ignored this model it seems) fixed the resume option on the Mp3 player which is a relief.
