Lol, HTC made this casing...LG just put their name on it and Google put their OS in it...lame -_-
I dont like it. It looks too fiddly and it looks like a toy. I think as soon as you take it out the box it will break. Its not very attractive either its too much like a HTC and it doesn't go with LG
the keyboard is awsome but the design is not good lg should mix new chocolate wilt android and produce another phone then for sure i will buy one
This phone looks nice, but how about the reliability and price?
If this phone is going to cost as much as the Iphone or Nokia N97 forget it! I don't want to spend hundreds of pounds on a phone with missing features,poor touchscreen,poor camera/video at 15frames,no proper flash, rubbish battery life and high breakdown rates. When this phone is released, don't be surprised when you call LG for help that they don't know their own products! Yes,it's true that LG really don't know their own products - how can you call that a business!
LG have a bad reputation for poor products and after sales service!
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2009the BEST LOOKING qwerty phone up to date! 5 rows keyboard is just awesome and user friendly. N... moreIm sorry but you really cannot argue that this is the best looking QWERTY slider.. In all honesty your eyes must have had bleach poured on them... The Nokia E75 is not only better looking but also has musch a better spec sheet although it is a little more expensive. The Sony Ericsson X1 X2 are also better looking not to mention HTC devices... And they all also have realistic model codes, what does GW even mean???
the BEST LOOKING qwerty phone up to date! 5 rows keyboard is just awesome and user friendly. Nice job LG.
having said that, we don't buy phone just from the cover. so if you look at inside stuff, there nothing new and not even the best specs up to date. while other android phones have capacitive, multi touch, and not even office editor capability that I read from the spread sheet.
It's a shame that this phone is what you can say pretty girl with average IQ (not dumb though..). but the brand is LG so if it wants to attract attention, it must lowered the price.
if LG not comes up with revolutionary specs they have to be economic.
when somebody going to release phone that is good inside out? N900 specs with qwerty like this would be nicer.
lg ruined a well thought out and well designed phone with the stupid resistive touchscreen. y dont companies understand that ppl dont want resistive anymore? and if the compnay wants to support stylus then they shud switch to optical touchscreen (which is more sensitive and also supports multitouch)
I think the resistive screen is a typo as the official annoucement (http://www.lge.com/about/press_release/detail/21912.jhtml) doesn't mention it.
5 rows qwerty with inverted T are great.
Budget doesn't mean low quality in my opinion, simply WM could be more expensive than Android.
Maybe LGE will be nice enough to post some real specs.
Mobilemaster, 14 Sep 2009Good phone, but why the screen is QVGA? I think this can't compete the other Android based pho... moreAll Android phones have the same resolution. Only Maemo, Symbian and WinMo allows higher resolution for the moment. Except a change in the future, but for now ALL Android phones are bugdet phones!
this phone isnt the treat i thought she would be. after years of hanging posters of my icons and colpeted puzzles on my walls i found this to not be something i cld hold up high with those i look to for guidance. 2 years to late and my heart has grown cold of waiting to not get the date i need.
