At first glance, this phone seems very interesting, but when you use go through and use it for a couple of weeks, the faults and weaknesses start to appear. Its camera takes reasonable photos just in a pretty light environment. Its flash is nothing but a flashlight! It runs slowly which is bothersome in finding and calling a contact. However the music and video play quality is good. Totally, I'm not satisfied with this phone and I wish I made a better choice!!
worst phone i ever had used in my life. battery back up is very poor, phone hangs most of the times,lot of lagging duirng functionality, doesn't een support 8 gb sd card. overall performance of the phone is worst. i would rate 2/10.
never go for any of the lg phones. they are not made to make phones.
it was one of the best phone released in its time. it was even called one of the i phone killers .there only a few phones which had an fm transmitter and a 3d cube display this was all 2 years ago when the touch phone lifestyle was emerging . i am a proud owner of this phone although it had its flaws cause its a Java os . it is a beautiful work of machine and had its own elegance.
Its a rather poor as a phone and I stopped using it as a my primary phone due to its freezing / hanging / loss of signal.. Now I only use it for its camera and music player which are rather good. 5mp resolution, built-in memory and good video capability. Also like its FM transmitter which feeds into hi-fi and car systems.Reason I picked it was it came very cheap at stock clearance price.
I cannot open youtube videos in my km900.. ,how about the other users?
When i was getting this phone from the telco, the first two brand-new phones that the staff open up to show me were not working! I shld had change my mind and look for other made/model, but at that time, this phone was a high-end phone with good deal. So i was fooled to get it.
The next thing was the battery couldn't last long. :(
The phone response was slow. It took about 2 to 3 seconds after selecting the function, to get to the next screen. Many a times, i was wondering whether the phone hang as there was no indication that it was loading the function.
For past few months, another problem surfaced. Sometimes, the phone juz cannot b use for calls and sms, although it was not hang. It has to be turned off-on and it worked again.
LG KM900 Arena is an old model. Look elsewhere for a better one. If you still seriously considering whether to get this phone, juz ask yourself this:
"Is my life miserable?"
If the answer is yes, no, or anything in between and beyond, then don't make it worse!
[deleted post]I'm only joking! LG is better than x3-02 but nokia x6 is the slightly better!
Trust me, this phone is better than iPhone 3GS! I know, hard to believe but once you check out the specs you'll be astonished by it. LG KM900 is better. The pixels on the 3GS is lower. LG KM900 is 480*800. It's got a secondary camera and lot's more!
I just bougt this phone two days ago (I know, it's a 2009 phone and it's not even a smartphone) and to me it's AWESOME. Not good, not excelent. It's AWESOME. But if I have to mention the biggest negative point, it's not in the handset itself but in the bundled software: The "DivX Mobile Converter":
The guys at DIVX can't do anything well. They created that piece of crap that would find any excuse to prevent you from using it. First, the missing dpv11.dll. Solved. Then, the missing DivX codec! The help page doesn't help at all. Tried installing the codec, no luck. LG did his part OK, but the guys and gals at DivX are not doing their job. What a piece of crap. It's a good thing we don't have to pay for it, otherwise I would ask my money back!
ive been using this modl for over a year now... i enjoy its camera, very well appreciated.. it was like an ipod to me, i enjoy its high memory that i can watched movies in high definition and quality sounds.. browsing is a little slow... shuts down whenever a voice call will be made on some areas.... but was ok on some....
I don't recommend this phone.. i've used this phone for a years, it make me crazy.. it turn off by itself, slow, and if you open a PDF file, the note "not enough memory" will appear.
I give this phone a 5 out of ten. The features to the phone is great. It has its good tendancys but I wouldnt highly recomend. I have had the phone turn off while in use. Sometimes it takes a while to connect with wi-fi internet connections. Cant download many things to the phone. Cant upload pics to my sight. Can only save certain apps to the phone. Cant download music or movies or pics unless its connected to the usb chord onto the comp or bluetooth, and even bluetooth is not recognised to certain phones, comps.

I don't recommend this phone... 5/10 score, it does have somethings going for it considering the cost. It's proprietary S-Class 3D interface/OS is unstable and not enough to make the natural resources spent on the build of the phone worth the use, it's not very customizable and you get sick of it quick too. You get what you pay for, and unfortunately this holds true for it has potential but wasted due to many flaws. Not everything is perfect, and this needs to be thought of when reviewing specifications on everything these days, just cause it has a spinning cube don't make it revolutionary or an iPhone 3G with a different look. All touchscreens use lots of battery, but the life on this one is far less than satisfactory. Therefor after all consideration and debate, it is going to a bottom draw. It may re-emerge in the unlikely event that the new HTC Desire S I'm about to get fails me. Sorry LG but your phone sucked, but I did buy one of your TV's a few weeks ago.
