sam, 09 Oct 2009Hi Benx!!!! Thanx a lot for ur advice.till now i have charged my phone only once,so from now ... moreHey Sam I forget to put my name on the article on ur problem with youtube and batt charging, u know when my the Lg arena reaches 5 days I guess I was just lucky but in general moderate use with the phone vibration off and the brightness set to just one bar I think normally the batt can withstand 3 days and in heavy use just one day,this is my estimation, as I said before Im a Nokia guy so im more familiar with the technically of Nokia,he he! Cheers!
sam, 09 Oct 2009Hi Benx!!!! Thanx a lot for ur advice.till now i have charged my phone only once,so from now ... moreHello Sam its natural for the LG charger to get hot, like nokia its the same, the way u take out the charger and plug it in again that may be the way it is with LG, may be just may be bcus the batt drain a little bcus of the large screen display and your brightness setting may be high so the batt drain faster than normal, remember this few tips to maximize batt endurance, first off the phone vibration, Im not referring to vibration on silent mode,I am referring to the general vibration of the phone, 2nd set your phone brightness setting to just one bar the display is already sufficient. Regarding if you want to watch youtube video, I think you have to download youtube mobile to the phone to be able to watch youtube videos,hope this helps,Thank you.

Thanx a lot for ur advice.till now i have charged my phone only once,so from now onwards i will charge it normally i.e for 2-3 hrs.and u mentioned that u reached 5 days after ur 3rd charging, it really sounds gr8.i hope the same for mine also.this is also my first LG phone , thats why i may be a it confused or puzzled with its unconventional behaviour as compared to nokia(which was my earlier brand).a few question i want to ask u-
Does ur charger gets hot while charging?
After charging when the battery shows "battery full" sign, if i remove the power plug and immediately plug it again without any time lag it again starts charging for nxt 50-70 secs before showing battery full,is it normal with LG as this was not the case with Nokia(i am asking this to u bcoz u were also a Nokia user like me) and also i am not able to view U-Tube videos,it is telling some error,what should i do to watch videos on U-tube?
thanx in advance..
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2009Who the heck told you to charge the battery for 14hrs????
BTW, you can not do that - I gues... morei know that the phone doesnt let overcharge itself, but in the instruction manual itssaid that we should charge the phone for 14hrs irrespective of the battery full message only for the first time.I know that after about 2hrs of charging the battery shows "battery full" sign, but i still didnt unplug it and put it on power for 14 hrs at a strech as i was just following the instruction manual.
if u have any different idea abt this , plz let me know that....

I felt the batt begins to have longer power on my 3rd charge of the batt, this is the 3rd charge that the batt endure for 5 days before warning of low batt, it endured 5 days bcus I was not using it heavily...actually its not just the Lg Arena that have this batt problem, Im a very loyal Nokia phone user all my phone was nokia except this touch screen one its my 1st Lg phone, do you recall the Nokia 6300 its a slim phone with a display of 16M colors and a 2.2" TFT screen, its has the same problem, use it heavily and the phone will last for 1 day or less, even the IPhone have this problem, you can go the the apple Iphone 3G and read the editor's review of the unit, he said if you keep on downloading apps and heavy tinkering the Iphone will only last you 4 to 5 hours, its worst than the Lg Arena.
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2009Who the heck told you to charge the battery for 14hrs???? BTW, you can not do that - I gues... moreWhy not read the Operation Manual of the LG Arena, it is clearly stated ur initial charging that means only the first charge should be 14 hours then the 2nd charging and the rest of the charging is the normal 2 and a half hour charge, I was refering only the "Initial Charging" that needs 14 hour as stated on the operation manual of the phone, I apologize if I did not make the statement clear the first time, Thanks.

BTW, you can not do that - I guess you do not even have the phone!
After 2-3 hours thephone tell you to disconnect from the charger!!!
All you had to do is follow the instruction!
I do not know this bs of 10-14 hours of first charge come from?
The battery should not be overcharged!!!
The phone does not let you over charge.
People who do not have this phone - please give up this bs here.
Hi, just to ask anyone using the phone, can skype be used for this model? Hv anyone tried downloading skype into the phone? THx.
hello to everyone!!!
if anyone is having any sort of idea to increase the battery life or how to properly regulate the battery life, plz let me know...
what is the average battery life with normal usage and is there any special high rating battery available of LG which can be used for this phone to increase its battery performance life....
plz reply guys...
i purchased this phone yestedday itself.
i find everything gr8.Only annoying this is its shorter battery life.
for the first time i charged it for 14 hrs.Even after that also with no use at all or with jst slightest use,most of the time the phone was kept in standby mode,
the battery gets drain in a single day time.And if i start using heavily the phone, in that case i think it wont last a full day even.
i just cant imagine, how ur battery is giving u 3-4 days back up,nd even 5 days.because i think if the phone is kept in standby mode with no use at all, then also it cant last more than 1 day and half.
so plz tell,how many times should i charge my battery for 14 hr, only first time or first 4-5 times should i do like this..
plz reply ...thanx in advance..

Gary, 02 Oct 2009Hi Benx. Your feedback got me very worried. I bought the phone two weeks ago. Everythings alri... moreHello again Gary, if your phone ring u should be able to see whos calling as long as the phone is ringing the back lights will still be on, let me share my setting with u, my power saver is on and my phone keypad is set to 60sec, if you are reading a long SMS and the light goes out quickly,I suggest u scroll a little while reading your SMS,this way the lights wont go out, also let me give u a tip set the screen brightness to just 1 bar its sufficient enough and this way u can save more power on your batt, ever wonder why the display lights goes out so quickly? its bcus to save power by itself I think LG program the phone to be this way to quickly save batt power, What I told you b4 about prevention of virus is very important b4 putting data to the phone via Micro SD always check for viruses, cus once the virus enters and merge with the firmware, its big trouble for us, I hope this advise helps you, Thank you and Cheers!
guys, I just got the phone and I found the internet browsing and issue. The problem is that when I have the default page zoom, and try to click on any link it takes several times until it activates, and even its hard to click on the link exactly. believe my finger aren't that fatty :) anybody can tell me their feedback
Gary, 02 Oct 2009Hi Benx. Your feedback got me very worried. I bought the phone two weeks ago. Everythings alri... moreHello again Gary about your Battery on the Arena, this is my experiences so far, tinkering the phone a lot like downloading data via bluetooth, activating WiFi and setting it on 3G network signal will definitely drain your battery to 1 day or less, if u keep on using it for a long time it will drain quickly because the phone is displaying 16Million colors with a large 3" display, you can expect the batt will go low, when I first got the phone I set all the setting to my preference and around 1 day or 1 day and a half the batt was already low but I learn to use it moderately SMS sending, 1 or 2 songs played, watching 1 or 2 videos or pics on gallery, accept a few calls it will set u around 2 to 3 days b4 charging, now I some times use it moderately and some times less than moderate so I achieved 5 days b4 the batt low is warning me, one more thing Gary if u read the user manual on your initial charge of the batt it says u should charge it around 14 to 15 hours even when the phone saids the batt is full, leave it for 15 hours to maximize the batt. so in my first 2 charge I feel the batt is still quick to low batt but after the 3rd charge the batt is at its peak thats probably how my phone reaches 5 days b4 charging, remember Im referring to moderate to less moderate use and you dont need to buy another batt, u can look closely on the batt if its really new I think u dont have a problem with it, Thanks.
