Actually, LG does not stand for Life is Good.
Life is Good is just their motto.
LG stand for Lucky Goldstar. LG was originally two companies that merged together after the daughter of Lucky Chemical Ltd.'s owner married with the son of Goldstar Electronics Ltd.'s owner. Lucky Chemical Ltd still makes chemical consumer products like toothpaste and shampoo. Goldstar is now LG Electronics.
About two years ago, GS (GoldStar) group officially separated from LG group, and they are now separate companies although LG still uses LG brand.
Any more information on how well this model performs, as opposed to how beautiful it is (or otherwise) to look at?
Seriously though, the name appears to be a gimmick.
Something to do with the fact that it is about the size of a chocolate bar (aren't all mobiles???) and that in Korea the most popular colour is a dark chocolate brown - how naff is that?
Perhaps it is thought that a phone has to have a name (a la RaZoR) to be really successful these days.
Try again LG (which stands for Life is Good!!)
In my opinion this phone would look a lot nicer with blue lights - otherwise it is cool!
Hi I think this phone looks mint. I have the LG U880 n i want this phone now. Lol

there's no big difference between 1,3 mp. camera and 2 mp. resolution still is not impressive.if you want camera buy a proper digital camera with 5 mp. and stop complaining about every phone people,what you expect of them?...
to the guy complaining about the volume of text messege sound, i agree (as im sure many others do)
how ever the volume of the ring is very loud, you must not have it turned all the way up ;)
This phone looks pretty stunning, but fingerprints seem to be a major problem. It would also look a lot better with blue rather than red lights.
Just got the phone looks great... but if you keep it in your pocket (which is where most people do) it's hard to hear it ring and the vibrate function is not very strong. The text message is also quiet and suffers the same problem, in that you have'nt got a clue when you've been sent a message becuase you don't here of feel it go. This is really the main reason for having a phone so it might have to go back... shame really as it looks great!
Totally agree with you mate.
Idiotic to suggest that blue lights on a black background do not go!
Blue lights against a 'Piano Black' background most certainly does go - just take a look at the new Pioneer Plasma TVs which have this combination: ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL and far classier than red against blue!
here's a Video review of this phone-http://digitalnomadlife.viabloga.com/news/594.shtml and a lot of photos from reviews on chinese web-pages: http://www.one2free.com.cn/news/viewNews.asp?news_id=6814 ; http://it.cqzg.cn/html/200604/2129.html ; http://www.519shop.com/news/show.php?id=1069&sort=%E6%89%8B%E6%9C%BA%E8%AF%84%E6%B5%8B enjoy!:))
you can't change red back light...and black with blue doesn't match!ghh..this red sens.buttons are what this phones is known for-unique,luxury outlook!great phone,wouldn't change it for any other!
I agree with an earlier comment that this phone would look better if the lights were blue not red.
Is it possible to change them via the menu system?
