I've noticed that activating the camera causes the battery low deplete very quickly.
mul, 29 Dec 2009my phone hangs very often. Any helpclose the numerous applications you keep running in the background.
Plz anyone tell me how to get the log of my calls or the old calls that i did or received on KM900....
Been using this for a few days now and am feeling confused about it this is why...
Well mine is stable it has hang once or twice but show me any phone that does not restart its self once in a while,
texting is easy with the T9 editor,
The screen is unbelievable (awesome) for watching videos better than iPhone or iPod touch for that
Camera is good but no where near SE C901 or Nokia N82 but it has better video recording,
Wi-fi is good to have,
Fm transmitter is very cool and dead easy to set up,
Internet is quick and works very well with opera mini 4.2, but there are some apps that do not work very well with touch screen like Nimbuzz. Its got Hsdpa too
The battery will not last if u use all the features like wi-fi or gps or watching videos, but can go almost two days with regular use. Be sure to activate the ambient light sensor.
But, for me i still prefer phones with normal hardware keys...
U can't drunk text with a touch phone easily :-)
Also it does feel delicate and fragile, its light and has aluminum body panels it feels like it can break if it only fell once... The silicone case it comes with does help though providing good grip.
So at least for me mine is not that problematic so if u like touchscreens try it out
it says it plays 30 hr of music nd 3 hrs 50 mins talk time ...i guess thats enuf for it to stay 4 a day or two ..right ..i dnt talk alot i like showing of new tracks nd videos nd picz mostly so does it PLAY WMV ND FLASH and can u install programs from the computer ?
for your frimware upgrade u can go to www.mylgarena.com u will find what u want there if any proplem just tell me
I've bought the lg arena from croma and i want or i have to upgrade its firmware ...but really don't no how to so could any 1 help(wit detailed steps)
what's the actual price in india and which format softwares does it supports?
You are right
But I hope you work Osvet ware update for the mobile and you will notice the difference
Of course, I'm ending battery quickly
Because the mobile is touch
HTC good brand, OS windows mobile unstable, it sucks. Great smart fone for an intelligent smart user is 9700 Blackberry.. hands down.
I have bought this phone a week ago and i do not really like it.
i have had a major problem with it that is that when i put my headphones in then take them out the phone still thinks it is in.
i really need help with this problem
please post on this comment to say how i can get rid of the problem??
to all who saids that the battery life is low ,dont you people know that when you buy a newphone you got to let it charge a whole day not a few hours , try rhat so youwill notice that the battery life will improve ;-) peace
This phone is mostly rubbish. I t has a few good points such as:
Battery life seems pretty good (had it few months and it lasts a good few days at a time playing music and Browsing, texting etc.)
The Sound quality is OK. although i have never been one for picky sound.
Now the bad points!:
The browser renders pages that slowly its hardly worth using it at all.
it has extremely limited GPS. And sign of a wall or... piece of paper will stop it working.
The music player is really slow.
The auto rotate takes forever to change (even though in the developer menu you can see the axis cords changing to the slightest movement so its software level).
It just turns off and on again when it feels like it, often when browsing.
The SMS folder can only hold 100 msgs.
The email client just shockingly bad.
The slow level hardware inside the device is rubbish (the service manual - not available to phone owners - refers to a 200-300MHz CPU and and looking inside what looks to be an ATI chipset and graphics core. there is also only 138MB of RAM, with only 5mb of that open to applications.)
So overall I'm am very disappointed with this phone, I would not recommend it to anyone. It also prone to screen burn.
I'm moving to the HTC Hero soon, as HTC is a brand you can trust. I had my short stay with the rubbish phone makers, now back to smart phones.
i bought this phone few weeks ago..and yes, it was a terrible phone before i upgraded the firmware..the only thing remains in the phone is very slow web browser..it makes it almost impossible to surf the internet..
Bought this arena KM900 in HK on my way back to Canada last May 09. The firmware on the unit was KM900AT-V10a... i can relate to all the negative issues that i have read here. freezing when dialing, no access to youtube, music icon freezes,i even had an annoying roaming icon and the headset on at all times even when i was not roaming at all here in Canada. headset icon wouldnt disappear after use, i had to reset it all the time...UNTIL june 09 when the first upgrade of firmware was available (thanks to lg forum guys)i went ahead and upgraded the firmware to V10e...and last sept, i was able to get another upgrade to my presrnt firmware which is V10H.. mann i tell you, i was in the same shoes as all of you were before, i almost torched this arean until the firmwares were changed...now i enjoy the no freezing, youtube crystal clarity, no more annoying icons, music and music videos (MP4 format) at its best, thanks idesktop.tv, super dvd clarity. wifi connection is smooth...by the way, when formatting, select the original place where the phone was purchased, even if im in canada using it thru rogers network, i download my firmware with the country choice of HK...everything was done thru LGMobile support tool and LGmobile updater (available from the CD in the box as purchased)... i believe this fone whom i thought sucks is actually a great phone upon changing the firmware. i was a HTC(telus canada) user before and a nokia N series user (which i bought in the Phil back in 2006)...this arena KM900 is a great fone, simple, user friendly..and uniquge UI. its an eye catcher since Arena isnt sold YET in Canada. im a happy Arena user. oh by the way....im still with you all in regards to the BATTERY...it doesnt last 24 hours...altho i have the patience to charge it every evening for a couple of hours..its cool!!
Nick, 22 Dec 2009I purchased the Arena last June and to be completely honest, this phone has proved to be a com... moreI agree. I got mines same time as you did and it is just a waste of money. The features on the box are all useless. The only good thing is I see is the camera but again you cannot turn off the shutter sound which is really annoying. The music is ok but not great. The interface is easy to use but texting is also another problem.
