The worst mobile phone purchse in the last 15 years (10 phones total). Some of things I don't like:
- S-class interface is at the most half-baked:
- Music player does not recognise musician
or album name (although it is recognized
when going through Windows Media Player
- Wifi only working for web-surfing (e-mail
using wifi not supported)
- Inbox messages displaying oldest mail
first, but after opening a message and
then returning to the inbox, then you
have the newest message first; consitency?
- Horizontal view only allowed for SMS
writing. What's the point?
- Editing contact not available through
the S-Class interface. Have to go to
native WM6.1 through "programs"
-　Phone seems to be acting on its own when it is locked ( I lock it before I put it in the bag, I take it out - still locked - and unlock it to find out that it has started several applications on its own (happens when leaving the phone locked on the desk)
- Support: I have written once when I was confirmed that wifi does not work with e-mail, but following support e-mails were never answered.
- Thought there might be software fixes to be downloaded, but LG does not provide any such service...
I will stick with HTC which my wife owns, which does not have any of the above problems.
I just bought this phone a few days ago. the phone seems to hang or lag very often. can anyone tell me if this phone spoil easily? Or can the lag be cured? THanks
spuntz, 29 Jan 2010Hi I've buy this phone begin of Jan. Find really great, but of course have some cons.
- No LE... moresettings-> Power -> Battery power -> do the rest
It does not have a proper unlock menu though
yep. after a month, it looks like a one-year-old phone already. lol. i agree also too that the menu (win mo skinned with s-class UI) is INCONSISTENT. the most inconsistent and unexpected UI for winmo phones. sheesh. even the 3 year old Samsung Omnia beats this in any criteria anytime.
Anonymous, 21 Jul 2009Its overall a nice phone with the joysticks / mouse pad in centre, and easy to use..what i rea... moreThe mousepad scratches easily. And so do the whole casing. Should have used a harder material. The phone looks 'used' in just 1 month due to many minor scratches
xiaolove., 27 Nov 2009Is there keyboard function for this phone when messaging ?When connected to the computer, I cannot find the sms. Can someone inform how to access the sms using the computer? Thanks
Anonymous, 19 Jan 2010Just got the phone, emailed LG service centre in Singapore regarding winmo 6.5, they replied &... moreIt is not only laggy. The menu is inconsistent. It hangs. It 'jumps' around. Too many bad points
Hi I've buy this phone begin of Jan. Find really great, but of course have some cons.
- No LED or Xenon flash
- Battery life short
- No "automatic" lock keyboard: or if have thx to let me know how to activate it.
- Already "crashed" 2 times but maybe comes from Windows.
- Sofware on CD not compatible with Mac but I thk it's for all or most manufacturer.
Otherwise nice phone.
I'm planning to get this phone next week. Do I have to purchase like an internet plan or whatever in order to use the functions like the Windows Mobile stuff? I only paid for unlimited texting. If I purchase this phone do i purchase the internet with it too or it's fine without it. What are some pros and cons for this phone? Thanks
Just got the phone, emailed LG service centre in Singapore regarding winmo 6.5, they replied "we will notify you again when the update is up"
In my opinion, the downside of the phone is its laggy. However, its still a great phone afterall
Hi! Just got one today though it came from Singapore as it's still not available in the Philippines. Anyway, i both have Eigen and Samsung Jet. i just noticed that the housing (black lining) of Eigen gets scratches easily.
winmo is already given and the lower cpu of Eigen that's why i still can't sell my Jet. planning to sell THIS instead of Jet no too soon.
Camera performance is slightly better than Jet. Playing music through speaker is AWESOME compared to Jet BUT rubbish music playback through wired headset. you'll easily notice the OVER TREBLING and VERY VERY LOW BASS. i think it's because they used micro usb instead of having the standard 3.5mm which affects the quality. and what sucks even more is that there's no equalizer.. oh well, lesson learned. i will never buy an LG again.
gsmarena was wrong, it's contain 262k colours. i checked it with my own lg gm730. and for the one that asking below = ram 256mb, rom 512mb. still dunno how tu upg os into 6.5 winmo
hai there. I just want to know if it's upgradeable into winmo 6.5 vers.? Pls somebody answer me, i will buy one in the few days
my phone is in spanish, and i need to change it to english, i don t now how to do it?
How can I open A-GPS funtion? I installed Google Maps and my GM730 can connect to GPRS, 3G network but it often said: No GPS.
Lg GM730 & Samsung B7300 OmniaLITE. Which one do you think is the best? I think OmniaLITE is better.
-OmniaLITE has better processor.
-OmniaLITE has long live battery.
-LG GM730 is more expensive!! (410 Euro) & I think it bit more laggy. It supposed to be a smartphone doesn't it? The only good about it was LG has a better resolution on it's camera.
got one d phone is great but my problem is d time always delay 1 or 2 hrs after 1 day n more n got to reset can someone assist me how to hold d time, thx guys
