Terry, 10 Apr 2009Why oh why oh why does LG have to ruin a potentially great phone/hardware with stupid crippled... moreI completely agree with You youtube over wifi. Why on earth has this feature not been added.
My Renoir plays any Divx thrown at it.
The Arena now has to be converted. What a silly back step to a great phone.
LG support is also shockingly poor.
I just hope things start to improve with the next firmware version
I have been using the phone for a few days now and im very pleased with the Arena.
The screen and the new software is very nice, It has crashed on me a few times though now and does need more refinement. Better battery life and less lag would be be a big +
Camera could be better as Indoor Pics can be grainy. The Camera / Video camera are also very power hungry.
I have noticed a couple of problems with the Arena at present. You cant use You tube over wifi at all. The Unit currency converter doesnt work correctly if you type in for eg 1.04 it will display 1.40. The phone cant display 1.04. Also VGA Videos taken with the Renoir can't be played on the Arena which is very strange
I also wish LG would have a much greater battery for the phone.
The one with the phone is less than above average.
However with these little problems. I still like the phone very much and the screen and styling are superb.
My phone also came as Quad Band and 900/2100 HSDPA.
does the battery dies fast am goin to get one of these that why i ask cuz i dnt like phone that has to be charge alot someone please answer my question
Had this phone for over 2 weeks now, If you want a phone with full multi-media experience then I think you should look elsewhere as this LG Arena is handicapped by having to be DivX Certified and its only Certified to play 320x240 DivX video or less, on a 800x480 screen, and if you do want to get it to play DivX video I wish you good luck, as I have had none sofar and I have been using DivX & Xvid for years.

TingTong, 18 Apr 2009With LG phones can you download firmware upgrade via your PC like with Nokia ? That is somethi... moreyes you will be able to update the software - there are also rumors that it will run iphone browser . . the LG Arena really does deserve a 10/10 raing, LG may seem an un-popular make but they're far from it - the proof lies in the specs of the phone.
D.Bp, 17 Apr 2009Id just like to point out that the '2 stripe' isnt a brand logo, its just what lonsdale have ... moreI have been demoing both phones extensively since the LG was released in UK stores and would say the iphone wins every time. Hands down.

How do you get youtube to work on this phone?
Im not even talking through wifi just through 3g?
On the youtube link when I go to watcha video a warning
comes up saying not supported and through opera mini
when I press watch it never starts?
Its possible to use Opera mini on the phone even if the phone dont have any official support.Just download whatever Lg phone and that will work! BTW its a very nice phone but still a little buggy in the GUI but that
will disappear with the next F/W update I guess
