ok got my Arena yesterday and yes it's a powerful piece of kit BUT...
1 - Cannot edit contacts. Have to add them to favourites then edit them from contacts home screen.
2 - Camera button doesn't always respond. I think this is a software issue not a hardware issue.
3 - Camera not as good as the Viewty
4 - Sometimes, like in SMS writing, the buttons are to close together and you keep hitting wrong one even if you don't think you did.
5 - No Mark/Unmark feature in SMS so you either have to delete them one by one or delete them all.
I do like the FM transmitter though and the threaded SMS.
Hopefully LG will release a new firmware for this that fixes some of these issues. But given LG's history of just releasing a phone and then forgetting about it I'm not going to hold my breath.
i got this phone , but iam gonna tell u the promblems i keep getting , the battery dnt last very long if you play with it all day , when taking picturs indoors it lags and is very very slow i think its to do with the lighting focus>>> when out side works wicked, also you cant change the home menu page wich ant good, also some times when i go to txt the key pad comes up but is missing a key some times wich is annoying, apart from that the phone is the best i have ever seen when you do bluetooth u can go into peoples phones and take all there stuff the movie maker is great really fun to use the phone comes with 3games that u ha to shake the phone to do it which is pretty fun!!! all i cn say is iphone is much bigger and heavery , this is a very good run up to the iphone if i was apple i would be worried!!!!
DP, 13 Apr 2009This phone is AMAZING!!!! I got the phone on Friday and I love it!!!are you australian?
Had my reservations about gettin an LG and i was all set to get the tocco ultra until i read the review of the arena on here. The user interface looked so much better than the samsung and there seemed to be a lot more features wise. Now i have had it for 2 days my decision has been justified its awesome. The only real gripe i have with it is the internet is rather slow even when using wifi but other than this no problems what so ever.
hey guys i really have the phone and you know its very cool..How would i describe it better say AMAZING phone it really meets all the features im looking for(WIFI, 3G, TOUCH, )
the most interesting features of this is the touch flow fantastic..i really enjoy it..Im not an LG fan before i just seen this in the web and try the risk and good decision that i bought it...
This phone will be stiff competition for new Nokia N97. Similar specs at a much lower price and available much sooner.
I just want to know if it got qwerty keyboard for texting, cause i got the viewty and i want to buy this one but thats the only thing thats stop me ????
I have done everything i have rang lg i have rang all the companys i work for all phones and still dont know what plans its coming on? for some strange reason does any1 know? (AUSTRALIA)
and to think i was thinking about buying this phone..........hell no i change my mind after reading these reviews. but i still like how the phone looks and the cube thing seems really cool. LG phones in my opinion always seem not to be user friendly. Maybe i am just hard to understand.
may i know how is the battery life for this phone,i.e. how many hours it can last for one charging?Thanks
