Hi Guys, can anyone please tell me exactly what happens to the phone when the charger is plugged in.
I only ask, as when i plug my charger in, the phone screen goes blank after a couple of seconds, however if i slide it up to reveal the keypad, the screen comes on, and it shows the charging display. Is this the same charging problem, or when you say it powers off, you cant turn it back on again?
lol....they change it when imported here, in korea its 512mb with slot
128 MB and no expansion slot?!
128 is filled quickly. How can it be popular i korea, do they take small pictures of small people. A taller european might not fit into the memory. More mem and it's a hit.
"weak for dropping" - I've got one of these and it seems very sturdy so believe it should cope with the standard drops!
This in white would be seriously cool!!
it was so good looking, will it have white colour? and will it have upgrade version 512mb? not just 128mb...
Just bought this phone from the Carphone Warehouse and i'm completely blown away by it! The touch pad is responsive, and *I think* it's heat sensitive as the touchpad doesn't work if I use a stylus or pen so i'm assuming the warmth of the finger does it.
Anyway, the box it came in is very classy, gives you the overall impression that you've bought something very special. I was quite surprised actually as you get some nice stuff in there like the pouch, screen cleaner/phone charm, headphones etc.
The design of the phone is extremely well done, the slide is smooth, the camera quality is good and yeah, it only has 128mb of memory but I think that's alright, I mean, if I want to listen to music then that's why i've got an Ipod!
So far, i've plugged it into my PC and only used it in mass storage device mode (i.e. drag and drop files directly in to the phone, no software needed) but haven't used the PC software yet for stuff like contacts.
Overall, I am extremely impressed with the phone, it's features and especially its looks. This is my first LG mobile and so far so good!!
for all those who are interested its now available on all networks from the carphone warehouse:
Hey guys i know this is just a far out idea, but cos of it being such a small memory is there no way of getting it upgrade by someone that say is an electical engineer. say get a new bigger sized chip solder in or somthing say up to 512mb cos 128mb is bit of a waste really when it has teh focus on the music side of things with tehg controls there.
The problem you're talking about is sometimes coming from the charger.
You just have to do like Wonderkid and change it in Carphone Warehouse, it's not a big deal!
A friend of mine lend it to me last WE and the design is really amazing. The touch Pad, the red lights keys and the chrome outline create a great effect!
Personally there's no competition between the E900 and the LG 'Chocolate' ;o)
I have had mine for a couple of days now, I got one of the new batch without charging problems. Initially I got this phone because of it's looks, but it funtions quite well also. I've been a Nokia bloke all my life, and it's quite a drastic change. Most things are similar, i.e. text messaging. The finger sesitive buttons are a nice feature, but a little too un-responsive for my liking, I'm used to navigating quite quickly round my phone and the front buttons just hinder the process. 1.3 MP Camera is nice, but only 128MB storage is a little low. Overall I'm happy with LG. Beware greasy fingers!!
How does this compare with Samsung E900 ?. Like mega pixels of camera, memory, performance etc ?. Thanx !
I just got to play with the Chocolate phone in Carphone warehouse in London, and although I'm in business and so waiting for an SE P990, this phone is THE most beautifully designed device to hit the market since the invention of the mobile, and I mean it - and probably going to be the next RAZR. The construction is perfect, the slide is perfect, the display and user interface is very well thought out and attractive - not to mention the lovely touch sensitive controls. It's just wonderful! Go fondle one and you'll want it - even if you already have a phone you like. And no, I don't work for LG, just giving credit where credit is due. Yum yum!
Got a lg kg800 which has a charger problem Hope to have it replaced. But i have noticed a possible other problem .When i try to connect to LG contents bank i get a message saying initalizing please wait. The loading bar fills about 20% then freezes,Also when i try to connect to pc sync and click on read on the mpbile icon it says reading 1-20 then it closes the port. Would like to know if others are having the same problem. Many thanks
I have got a KG800 with the charger problem. The phone turns off when I insert the charger. How do i get in touch with LG to sort this? Or is there a software upgrade I can do myself. Many Thanks.
This is a fantastic looking phone with decent enough spec. The UK batch have some charger issues but that is being sorted. I love mine !
thinkness difference is only 1.3mm.
E900 looks more like a business phone.
Choclate looks slim and funky with red color and all.
They didnt meant for same buyer.
