me_52, 23 Aug 2009hi guys, have read a lot about the divx playback issue on this forum, so here is my take on th... moreI am so amazed with the MP4 video resolution. I use 624*352 resolution, with a bit rate of 937.50 kbit/sec. Perfectly fits the screen
As a matter of fact, I watch the episodes of Psych and True Blood here. After downloading, I convert the file into MP4 and then copy it to my phone. I bring it with me in the office, and during break time, I watch the episodes.
So clear. And the sound, using the earphones, is also vibrant. This is a great portable video player.
Only just got the KM900 and I'm liking the h/s so far. However i have a problem: when i try to call my answer phone, i press the dial pad and when i try to press '2' to listen to messages it doesn't do anything. It will let me press '2' but the answer phone is not recognising im doing anything. has anyone else had this problem?
i just got my LG KM900 Arena. Problems arise. The battery life is quite short don't you agree? I charged it till the first message came out " battery full. please remove ... " with 24 hours. supposedly it has 3 bars of battery ( full ) i was left with 2 bars. Does anyone experiences this? Thanks!
I just recently bought this phone... its great, im very happy with it... but i found something shocking about it....
I change the default wall paper to a photo which i have taken it was the eiffel tower. after one day having tht wallpaper on i can slowly see a shadow resembling the eiffel tower forming on my home screen (the one with the clock on it gives the most clearest shadow) n then the lighter part of the shadow starts to stutter which can be seen on the camera n video camera. i changed my phone today bcoz they think its a manufacturing defect.... however im beginning to notice my second arena doing the same thing but its very vague n doesnt show on the camera only on the home screen... can anyone tell me whats wrong??
hey plz anybody tell me can lg arena sold in india has FM TRANSMITTER,PLZ reply
which is way better? LG K900 Arena or n79? both has the same features like FM transmitter.
However you can not store more than 1000 contacts to phonebook of lg km900 very bad feature.
does lg intend to fix the divx playback issue in future firmware updates?
i beg to disagree.i bought my arena in HK (fortress) i was specific with the sales person that bcoz of the advertised DivX format, i intend to buy one, i was forwarned ahead that the arena lags and the batt sucks, also warned the volume varies upon the downloaded music video i download into the arena. some of which has a good sound to being with (loader than others).. my arena PLAYS DivX format downloaded from a DivX format (orig movie or music video).. but the fact remains, the arena LAGS, SLOW and FREEZES at times even if u have already flushed and replaced the firmware.im happy with the unit tho, it plays good divX movies and videos.( added another 8gig microSD). thats the only use for my arena tho, im happy with the E71 to conform with my day to day workload(memos, documents) as it reads words, access and excel. the arena doesnt but handles pdf files.but again my arena's battery life is poor.. and lags...and slow.
hi guys, have read a lot about the divx playback issue on this forum, so here is my take on this.
first the big fact lg arena CANT PLAY divx file right out of the box, thats soooo dissapointing bcos it was suppose to play and the bundled software converter dont do the job,yes you heard it right,the bundled software is,i feel, is of no use,as after converting when you play it on phone it gives error messages, soooo bad.
but wait a second guys i am stil watching movies in great or should i say awesome quality on lg arena
here is how.get a converter who converts divx,or other format to mp4,yes mp4,it works great on arena,the colors are reproduces amazingly
use this settings
size 320*240 bit rate 1500 i am using xilisoft converter.
this is my personal experience,do write how it works out for you all.
hi again,here is my 2nd part of the review.lets now review thing indivisually.
1>CAMERA: my verdict is... um.. average, not with the clarity wise ,which i think is acceptable but with the sluggish feel of the whole thing,after clicking one have to hold it for another second otherwise what you get is a blurred image, so dissapointing lg.
2>BROWSING: again sluggish,why i dont know, expected to be graet but was dissapointed. late download of pages i felt,it went out of system memory sometime(have to restart to fix tis) and NO YOU TUBE ON WIFI, come on LG you cant do this, fix it fast,plz,coz i have read that they have fixed it in uk.
3> USER INTERFACE is good and very well laid out,accelerometer can be used during most times,nice work lg.
so almost a month of using the lg arena and i would like to share my opinion with you.so here it is.
THE GREAT:1> the looks and design is pretty cool and standard,lg has made sure the phone dont look like just another starting range touch phone,the white color and the brushed metal gives it a sophisticated look.
2> the music player is great sound wise,the dolby thing do make listening enjoyable
3>capacitive touch screen is sooooo responsive,love it, you will ever want to touch old touch screen phones again which are resistive.
4>the screen clarity is the best out there cos the resolution is the one of the highest to be use in a phone,see it to believe,wow.
5>durable feel,use of tempered scratch resistant glass i think will keep the display great even after years of use,i think.
6>battery life appears to be satisfying for now,lets see how it holds up in future.
thats it for now,do look for the other half of the review,
