Anonymous, 05 Jun 2010which is much better? LG KM900 Arena or the samsung S8000 jet?both phones have almost similar specs n features, n have their own pros n cons.
you can read the reviews of both phones from this site to compare.
the main disadvantage of jet is that you cant download any apps by yourself. There is no any 3rd party apps for jet.
and also the memory card slot isnt hotswapable.
dee, 04 Jun 2010okay.. thanks! mine phone is KM900AT_V10e now.. dont think i can update it now if not i'll los... moreI think you dont need to update the firmware by yourself.
Bout a year since LG released arena, the lastest firmware should be available at LG repair centre nearest you. It's officially, wont void your phone waranty n should be free of charge too. Visit them to clarify.
Anyway, whether you update the firmware, if your phone lags, has a lot of bugs, freeze n restart often, no mater what the firmware version is, just do 3X factory reset.

its sleek but not userfriendly it hangs up and gets switched offf and on oce in a while also the google maps do not work ..........not the one if u lookin for heavy usage too sensitive
this phone is the best!i love the features of it and it only cost 200 euro(P 11k)...it's capacitive touch screen is cool!!it's the cheapest touch screen phone that will satisfy your needs..i've never regret buying this phone
I have had my LG arena for a couple of months and already it has a lot of problems, it is very slow to respond, and the biggest problem is recently my phone thinks that i have my earphones plugged into the phone all the time therefore i cannot make calls or nobody can phone me because it is just a blank sound.

people at LG repair centre even dont know about this, usually they do it once only.
That's why a lot of new users are dissapointed, bcoz the phone still has a lot of bug although LG repair centre said that it was fixed. So do 3X factory reset by yourself.
but you may dislike with batt performance, a large 3 inches screen with 1000 mah only.
anyway, most highend mobiles nowadays has its own problem, nothing is perfect.
i am very confused by reading opinions,
i selected bcoz of its looks;;;;;;;;
i need good phone with looks and battery backup
i can not tolerate any technical problems like hanging etc.
so plz suggest shall i go for km900?
just a money wasting!
few months ago i bought 2 lg phones : "kf755 secret" and "km900 arena". and now both of them have problems and i can't use them! serious problems whit OS. sometimes , some parts of touch screen doesn't work and it hangs and more more problems! and the biggest problem is about kf755! the os is too slow! it hangs even when i write sms!
you want a good phone? never try LG! try sonyericsson, samsung or nokia!

for camera performance the lastest firmware is the best.
bout 1 year now since LG released Arena, the lastest firmware should be available at LG repair centre nearest you. I got it for free.
hope this helps you to make your arena to be an ARENA.

but for best result on all feature performance you'd better get the lastest version.
In my experience with some previous version, bugs will increase if I often change usim card with other from different service provider.
Some previous version also has poor fm transmitter n movie maker performance.
woody, if my km900 lags i just follow your steps and do the 3x factory reset? does it need any prerequisitions? like having the lastest firm ware etc? thanks.
I am regretting my purchase of this phone. :(
I did do a lot of research before deciding to gamble and buy this phone, despite a lot of negative reviews. I have to say that the main reason is the price. It's very cheap for all the functions offered. Well, I guess the old saying applies here..."You get what you pay for".
After 1 week, the phone just starts shutting itself off for no reason. When I send SMS, sometimes the message just stay in the outbound folder and not get sent. I miss messages from other people...they just never get to the phone. The interface is mostly eye candy. You can't customize a lot of things. The performance is laggy.
I've sent the phone back to LG for service for the imtermitten shut off problem. It's been 2 weeks, no word from them yet.
This experience has turned me off to LG mobile products forever.
After my first LG fone(KM900) i swear i would nvr buy another LG phone ever again. Reason: its so lag,always off for no reason, always hang and lastly always wen i click on something it has no response!

hopefully i do pick the better device.
toby, 30 May 2010hi everyone, i need some help. im trying to decide between the arena, or a blackberry storm 95... moreread carefully phones spec & review from this site.
9530 has no WLAN, but if you really need BB service go for it. Ask your provider for detail if necessary.
Arena isnt a smartphone, it's a multimedia phone. It has some more features & at cheap price now.
but it is a problematic phone & some user may dislike its battery performance. You have to treat it right to get its awesome performance.
hope this help you spending your money for the right phone that you need.
