Battery life is poor. Low battery message came on after using less than a day. Light usage on voice calls, and synchronising emails every 15mins. Much worse than E71.
Does not synch with outlook very well. Numbers in certain fields in outlook is not recognised in the phonebook and as a result if someone rings or sends SMS then the name does not come up.
The phone is good rather than the music categorising issue. It seems that LG arena is uable to sort artiste, albums correctly when syncing with Windows media player or music monkey.
It is a known problem posted users on some mobile phone forum. What kind of rubbish music phone is that when it is pitching as a music oriented phone. BTW, it also can't display album art correctly as well. Hope that LG will sort this out in the new firmware soonest.
Is this phone good? im considering to buy this phone to use thogh im using an iphone and a htc cruise. is this phone better than what im using? i thought of buying an iphone for my bro too but maybe i would consider this. please tell me if this is good.
Why Gsmarena does not speciefied the tipe of inside proccesor.Same strange attitude on the LG site.Maybe it is not an AMD Infineon 600 Mhz like someone said.U guys who bought it, have u observed in the box or somewhere else any clue about this?Thanx!

I had problems typing on the qwerty on the shop's demo model, but after a few goes at home after buying it, you soon adapt to it. Ideally, if it were to be great for tap typing, the screen size would be at least 6 inches, but then that would defeat the whole purpose of this phone. Have a go at the shop to disperse any worries.

Viewing from an angle is not like LCD pc screen, but that's better to stop prying eyes when using in a public place.

The battery is great, last for well over 5 days even if you listen to the music, radio and do wi-fi.
In addition to my question just now, if the battery is poor, is there a better battery available to replace it with?
I've heard the battery life on this phone isn't great. Does anyone own one that could confirm this? How frequently does it require charging? I'm on the brink of getting one!
I saw and handled this phone in an LG store. The colors are brilliant,bright and snappy. The resolution is breath-taking. I just wish the phone were a tad bigger; a 3.2 screen would have been enough to get me to buy it. LG, please make slightly larger phones for those of us who have big hands!
I think I like this phone.. can someone tell me the disadvantages and advantages of this phone. and tell me also the positive and the negative side of this phone. thank you.
Please help me guys decide which is better the Samsung i900 or the LG KM900 Arena? thank you.
Hey guys, I have the Htc Touch blackstone, thinking about possibly selling it for either the samsung Omnia KM900 Arena. Any advice on making a decent decision? I live in the U.S., on T-mobile and using my Samsung Behold right now before I decide to sell the Blackstone.
Hi guys, is anyone using Arena with screen potector ? How does it work its better , lower reflection ....? I knew that is temperated glass, but I would like to avoid any even small scraches and maybe avoid reflection from glass!Any recom ? How is radio receiver is that bad as I read , that you need to hold cable to get good signal? Many thanks for answers...:-)
Ooh, forgot to mention silver is cool but black is sooooo much cooler ;-)
Just bought one today after the LG UK website promo and, though haven't used, the demo model @ the shop and styling rocks! Just the attached software will no doubt keep the owner busy till the phones wears out and a newer model comes along. May not have iPhone cachet, but the OS, video and price bracket certainly puts it above warranting for an iPhone. Size is also a lot more usable than Ap*le's; so there my 2 cents. Will post when I've charged it up and given it a run.
