Whats the colour available ? Its Black and Titan Black aswell ? Saw it on Pixmania its called just Black.....is it Titan Black ??? Please help ....Thx
I had P1i for two years then it was time to get a new phone. I was thinking of switching to AT&T from T-mobile just to have the new iPhone 3GS. I was also focused on buying the Xperia X1 since I like sony ericsson and the first time I tried the Xperia at the store, the feel was good. Although, it was a bit hard to use. The only plus was the form factor and the keyboard. X1 is relatively old phone since they came out with X2 already.
Store owner asked me to try the LG Arena because it is easy to use and after toying around with it for a few minutes, they are right about its ease of use. Display is also good. I bought it right away. At home, my 8-year old daughter loves it too and it is a fun phone to use for everybody. The size is just perfect - not too small and not too big.
I am going back to the store to get my wife a new LG Arena today.
red, 26 Jun 2009is this arena screen is made of glass like iphone?or it is the same the other phone made by plastic.if you like black color, I recommand that you should get Titan black. It is very very nice. I knew it because I have one.
elle, 26 Jun 2009yeah. so for those who want the fast and sensitive iPhone-like response, get capacitive touchs... moreis this arena screen is made of glass like iphone?or it is the same the other phone made by plastic.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970right....no need to curse at me. i was just answering the question.
Anonymous, 26 Jun 2009is the camera on the arena as good as the viewty? does it have the panoramic feature? please ... morecamera on the arena is not as good as on the viewty smart. the Viewty smart has 8 MP while the Arena has 5. the Arena's doesn't have panoramic view.
is the camera on the arena as good as the viewty? does it have the panoramic feature?
please reply asap! thanks
kiLLmore, 25 Jun 2009Hey elle!
Thanks 4 d advice- good strategy as LG fones dont hold their prices well, I guess I... moreyeah. so for those who want the fast and sensitive iPhone-like response, get capacitive touchscreen phones.
but my Arena has handwriting recognition! and i assure you, it's not fake. It's the real deal, from a Fortress store in Hong Kong.
when i write a new message, there's an arrow on top of my alphanumeric keypad. when i click it, options open on editing the T9 dictionary, Handwriting Recognition, Block Cursor and Paste. if you don't believe me, go to mylgarena.com and look for a thread that has tips on handwriting recognition. :)
Im so excited. Im gettin the Arena on wed (but wil b buyin it on monday :() ive never had an lg or a touchscreen phone, so i think this wil b a good phone to start with. Does any1 know whether this phone can support operamini 4.2? Plz write back asap. Cheers x
Sorry, forgot 2 add, was talkin abt d Capactive screen first..
BTW, Samsung claims that their R-resistive technology combines d best of both worlds, so u can use a stylus and expect brilliant response 2 finger touch..
Thanks 4 d advice- good strategy as LG fones dont hold their prices well, I guess I have made up my mind ...to wait till d Jet is launched here in India n then decide...lol
As for Resistive v/s Capacitive-this is d deal.
You absolutely CANNOT use a stylus or any other thing to operate the screen other than ur finger...not even gloved hands. The screen is optimized for finger touch and thats why they respond brilliantly. Hence NO handwriting recognition yada yada...
Resisitve screens respond to stylus, ball pen tips and anything else u can lay ur hands on. They are not optimized for only finger tips.Ergo, they respond slower.
I have this phone and LG needs to add a calibration utility. I have found that my finger presses register a little to the left
i think what makes 5800's resistive screen becomes easily touchable is it's large font.
in my opinion, i think capacitive screens are better than resistive. i dislike having to apply pressure when i touch the screen. although in fairness, if the Samsung Jet really does have that r-resistive screen (said to be much more sensitive than the regular resistive screen), then i'd be very impressed.
i'm currently happy with my Arena, but i really like the Jet too. :)
for those confused as to get the Samsung Jet, Samsung Omnia II, Samsung Omnia HD or the LG Arena, think about this. All the Samsung phones mentioned have bigger screens than the Arena, but the Omnia HD falls behind in pixel resolution. the Arena has its compact size, while the Omnia HD and the Omnia II are almost too dfficult to use single-handedly. the Arena has the S-class UI while the Samsung phones have touchwiz, with motion gate or whatever they call that :)
As a matter of fact i have used a resistive touch screen phone, pixon 8MP.. and i did observe that the pressure required to register a touch is a little more as compared to an i-phone.. so when i'm typin msges, and if i use my fibger, i end up pressing one more buttons, no too many times though, but i do.. which is not in the case of an iphone or for that matter any capacitive touch screen phone... ergonomiaclly speakin, resistive phones are designed to be effectively used with the help of a stylus... but in any case, wat i really mean to say is that capacitive touch screen phones are way more sensitive than resistives..
