Ketimun, 17 Feb 2010Resistive touchscreen? Bleeeeuuuuuughhh.....Feels like capacitive ;)
not lgs best effort cant bluetooth pics or music files,no sounds when pressing keys on keyboard,music player is totally crap the one on the arena is way better,should of kept best bits of s-class ui like fm transmitter from arena and arens music player....
the screen is so un responsive and not much in the way of customisation on the device and the screen looks so washed out im sending mine straight back to t-mobile and wait for something better which isnt too hard to find...

can it dl a lot of apps?
is the colours/ resolution good?
what about the music/ sound effects??
and is the screen really thay difficult to touch??
hope someone replies! thanks in advance! (:
I`m using my GW620 for a week and the battery lasts 2 days! Battery life depends on the way you use your phone. I use the Wi-fi almost all day when I`m at home. Two things that bother me are 1.that the update for this phone won`t be at v2.0 but at v1.6 and it will be available March or April... and 2.music`s quality isn`t as great as Sony Ericsson W980 that I used to have before GW620. Except those two tiny details, I love it!
What is the video capture resolution ? No site has a definative view on this....is it D1 or QVGA ? Even the manual says 4 modes but only shows 2 startign at QVGA ( but states this as a lower resoltion mode implying there are higher ones which is does not show ! ). I'm thinking og getting this due to price but not if the video capture is indeed QVGA not D1.
Dose of you who bought this phone : can it record in D1 resolution at 30fps ?
I tried to sell it but the offers i got was complete rubbish and mostly scams. but then i noticed something i went threw the phone and bam. i noticed a few things.. from a 12 month contract at 14 pound and a 5 pound internet charge for the month i was like thats reasonable.. and it was a free upgrade so i cant complain.. but first it was freezing on me.. its done it twice.. then it use to freeze b4 my fone would call and just vibrate like it was on crack.. then i noticed a few apps.. which help the software.. and a few things that started to make me love the phone.. yes i can keep in contact with everyone.. yes i can send emails.. and yes i am impressed.. but one thing.. the battery life aint as great as it says on the box.. after going on a long trip like going to work or whatever by the end of work my battery is nearly dead.. imma test it now.. it is 8.. imma do everything i do on the phone like ebuddy and use the internet and c how long it last for but it only last for around 8 hours.. not even that long.. i wanna no how i can help this but all they say is screen dimmer.. turn 3g into 2g and close all apps would it slow it down.. i tired it and it still seems the same.. i might have to buy another battery! and then my phone would be the best! well kinda i dont see it beating the iphone until a few updates come knocking
i have been using different kinds of mobile.. tried all brands
am currently using one WinMo 6.5 and this new LG android..
the limitations of this phone are the limitation of android itself..
my WinMo is a snapdragon and i must say that using YouTube and chatting is sometimes faster on the LG.
about the battery, when my wifi and 3g is on the entire day, it last only a day.. but then those are off, it last 2 days.
i have no other issues. i like it

I like the phone, its a really good phone for a small price. most phone like this are around £500.
However, the one thing i dont like, is the way the inbox is. I dont like the 'folders' for different people and the way the texts are grouped. I like the classic style inbox, where each text is seperate. Anyone know if there is a way to change this?
OK, had this phone for 5 days now (UK spec), and TBH I don't see what everyone is complaining about. OK, it's a budget android phone, but for £18 a month on a 24 month contract who cares?
The interface is easy to use, with no faults that I can detect. The internet is very easy to use on it as well.
And for all the naysayers whinging abot the resistive screen - try the phone first, I bloody love it!

Just got the phone yesturday, and I have to say that this is a really good phone. It is a little more complicated to get used to at first (if your not accustom to android), but you get the hang of it very quickly. my only complaint (since there is no such thing as a perfect phone) is the resistive screen (which works but isn't as good as capacitive) and lack of colour range (only has 256 instead of 16m)...
If you are looking to upgrade the os to 2.0, it will be available soon (if it isn't already available)....
My last piece of advice is to get the black version. It is better lookiing than the rest and has a nice piano black finish on the front, and the keyboard is black too (not the ugly grey like the blue version.
All in all, a really good android phone especially for the price and overall specs.
i am really not satisfy with the phone because instant messages is not compatible. i got a packages for it but evverytime i use msn or yahoo im i get charge for it. anyone please help me.
