Anonymous, 03 Dec 2008can you get instante messenger and youtube with this? get bk to me please.. thank you guysYes you can use e-buddy for that and view youtube also.
What this phone lacks is an good OS. Next generation phones should always have a more standard OS. Overall, the specs are rather promising.
Ok Guys ... Just another update.
DONT USE a 16GB Mirco SD HC card on your LG Renoir Unless you have one of those card with high write and read speeds. Because I guess this was the cause of my Renoir Hanging up and bugging out. Currently using a 4GB Mirco Sd Hc right now and works perfectly. Hope to get a 8GB Mirco Ultra in the mail soon...
can you get instante messenger and youtube with this? get bk to me please.. thank you guys

In response to De Bunk Da Junk' s comments about the video appearing dark when you record in slo-mo - it will! Each time you double the frame rate (i.e. 30 fps to 60), you need to double the amount of light for it to look the same. I shoot stuff at 1,000 frames per second, and need 96,000 watts of light to do that. If you're shooting video indoors with your ordinary light, you'll need to change it for something 4 times stronger if you record at 120 fps - your 100W bulb needs to be 400W to get the same exposure!
Ok guys Heres an update of my Renoir review.
My LG Renoir now is acting Buggy. It seems to be stuck selecting the lower right corner of the screen and its locked and I cant even unlock the phone. Up until I take out the sim card and the 16gb Memory card. I'm going to try to run this thing with a 8gb sdhc and see if it'll stop bugging out.
This is my second LG phone and it too is scaring me back to Nokia. I had a LG Shine before this one and it too had too many bugs. The only reason why I stuck with Nokia because they have one of the best customer support when it comes to firmware updates.
I'll try to hold on for Nokia to come out with a 8mp and a touch screen phone. But I'm really interested in the N97 currently but the 5mp camera is turning me off.
So if your looking into this phone. The camera is still one of the best I've seen. But I suggest not installing a 16gb SDHC card on it and try to stick to a 8gb sdhc... I'll keep you guys updated and will come back an post to see how it works out with the 8gb sdhc...
I got this phone its better then apple i phone. i phone obviously has slight better internet but this phone has far better features then i phone including sms. i didnt like the samsung pixon there softwares not good and they are very unreliable this phone is wicked!!!
