Firstly, to the person who said HTC is 'not really good', are you speaking from experience or just bashing? For a business user who doesn't need a top-notch camera and likes Windows they're all but unbeatable. Secondly, for those who bashed this handset, did you use it? I've just received mine today, and am very happy. My screen is definitely responsive enough, OS effects are fluid and the keypad is terrific. I'm very glad I waited for this phone to experience Android. The black Rogers version looks much better than the pastel blue version, although that's just my taste. I have been awaiting this phone for months now (even before Rogers got it - a lot of trouble to get one to Australia!) and am very impressed. If you come across one and like the feel, buy it.
no video call?
why all android-powered phones do not support video call?

HTC's phones, until recently, tended to be "brick-like" or they looked like someone had the Transormers lose on them. Often not very attractive. The past 18 months have seen a big change and the past 9 months most of all.
I love my HTC Magic....but I have a co-worker's HTC Diamond to remind me how uglyy an HTC phone *can* be.

You obviously know ALOT about the industry LOL
this phone is not made from HTC. why wouLD LG need HTC to make phones for them? rather the opposite way around. HTC is not so good really. unless your a fan boy for the HD2 or Nexus.
I am mostly wondering it is all of those new phone same or just this ph one has bad battery. I changed it once already still same thing, but i use it almost all the time.
Wow, everyone needs to just calm down a little. First of all, I'd like to point out that LG doesn't make the best phones, but this is apparantly made by HTC and its running Android which are both awesome.
A lot of retail places didn't even have these in stock in Ontario during the xmas season so obviously some ppl do like them.
I just ordered one for my gf. It does a lot for lil money.
I have this phone for 2-3 weeks, battery seems to sux not sure why, I charge it one day and on the next one is already dying.... Was wondering if it is just this phone itself or the whole model has this problem. Used to have sony ericssson and didnt had to charge it as much and again it was 3G phone...
Friends, Its me again I got my LG eve and am Disappointed. The Touch Interface is Very Poor. No way Near to even what I could have compromised knowing that its not iPhone. The Touch sensitive back & home buttons confuses you a lot and creates unhappy navigation. LG's customized Interface (iCons rather) are not pleasing either. Radio, headphones, Keypad are Poor Quality. Only thing What I lined about the is size and the camera but no good for a Phone hence decided to return it back to Rogers. Sorry guys I had to speak the real facts(as per my experience) so that others will decide. HTC Magic will be a good choice untill DROID arrives in Canada.

I dont find the size inconvenient AT ALL... I really really like this phone - if I had to say 1 thing I wish they would have done differently its that LG would have put a capacitive touch screen on it - its sometimes a bit sluggish and not as precise as it would be had they put a capacitive touch screen on it.
Poom, 16 Dec 2009How did you get the phone for free? Where are you located? What carrier?i work for rogers
My LG Eve is on its way and I am excited. This Phone seems to be having a good customer feedback. GSM Arena has not much to say but all LG Eve owners are happy. I picked up a T_Mobile Motorola Blur but could not Unlock hence had to order LG Eve. LG seems to be maintaining a Low profile in North America but its Android Phones are picking up good user base.. Motorola Blur(still I have the T-Mobile SIM pre-Paid roaming is good though). Let me check the LG Eve might get it on Tuesday. BTW I got it for $0 as well Awesome.
I've been using the GW620 for almost a month (got it for free!). Was skeptical at first as it is a LG phone. No problems though. Touch screen is responsive. Android is awesome. Battery life could be better but what 3g phone has impressive battery life?
I am really thinking about getting this phone. From what I have read, this phone appears to be exactly what I want.
From those of you that have one, is there anything you don't like about it aside from its size?
Second question, is it upgradeable from android 1.5 to 1.6/2.0 - can't seem to find a definite answer.
