hi Kian and Peow
thanks for all the info you guys gather, i have the samr feeling with Peow, singtel really down in their phone products, they don't have much pda phone unlike M1 and Starhut, maybe they are looking into iphone... hope singtel carrry Ks 20.
Even though I would love to have this phone, I think everybody in U.K. should boycot it as LG tinks that U.K is not in the same league as other europian and asian countries. They show this by releasing the phone almost everywhere else but in U.K. Thinking about it we should boycot buying LG altogether in U.K. if the think of us as a third rate country.
so far only StarHub have pre-launched this phone ... i asked the stuff and she told me that this phone will only be launched in Singapore on 30th March ... I checked out Singtel but they are only concentrating on their broadband promotions so its a thumbs up for Starhub users but thumbs down for Singtel & M1 users ... and the price for the phone at the IT SHOW is good ... I tried using the LG LS20 from the sales personel and i must say that it is really like what the others have said ... can't wait for Singtel to launch this phone ... haha
Thanks for your reply. Anyway, i think this is much depending on the local network. I am from malaysia and the network sux! Touch Duo only last aday for me. Whereas when i was using the phone in hong kong it last for 2-3 days with the same amount of usage!!!
hy! my LG battery has a 3 or 4 days life time with normal use and it has a 1050 mAh battery! compared with other phones this one has a great stand by time! dont know how LG did it but they are pros! :) compared with n95 for example that had a maximum of 2 days life time with minimum use... at normal use: 24 hours...! take care!
Thanks for all the information that you posted. One question on the KS20! Hows the battery life comparing with others phone that you know of. Apparently, Pocket PC seems to drain out battery like no other phone. I am currently a use for the HTC Touch Duo. LG website claims the battery to be 800mAh, whereas GSMArena 1050mAh??
I couldn't find the booth from Singtel...
Also I didn't spend more time but just using finger to touch and play with options... I like it for the start as wording is big enough for me as i am already 48 year old and I do have problem seeing wording that is small like the E51 that I bought. I am still thinking about it... may be upgrade with M1 as I have one line with M1 will be ready for upgrade few months'time.
I think you should like it.
Kian, it is me again, thanks for the info, did u see singtel selling? working weekdays will go on Sunday for try, did u play with it? how ?
Now KS 20 is launched in Singapore IT Show starting today. You can find it at Starhub's booth at level 3 selling at $398 with minimun plan.... But it is to late for me as I aready bought Nokia E51...
i dont know the release date... in Australia! sorry :( anyway i bought my phone from a guy, ho boughted it from France! i paid for it 300 euros! the phone was new with all the accesories! i also use a x-sim to be able to use it! :P :) hope i spelled correctly! have a nice day!
and yes, n95 is diff. as i remembered it, it was REAL loud... as long as this one is not too soft, im fine with that :)
now, when is it coming out in australia? sighs
sound qulity average (for example)compared with the n95! the phone is loud... i can hear it on the busy streets... dont know about others but i can hear it and for a pocket PC the sound it's( my opinion) ok! i can't compare it with the n95's sound quality because n95 has stereo speakears and that phone is very loud! and for the sms mp3 ringtone! it can be done!:) choose a mp3 file that you whant to assign for your sms event! copy the file in to your windows folder! now press start->settings->Sounds & Notification and select the Event dropdown list and look for 'Messaging: New Message', then choose the mp3 file! that's it! peace
yeah, regarding sound...
1. what's the quality? and is it true that it's not loud enough?
2. so we can choose sms ringtone from any mp3?
i had the same opinion about LG... and now that opinion has changed...! LG-Ks20 is my FIRST LG phone and it's very impressive! this is my opinion after 3 weeks of testing and playing with the Ks20! :) hope this will change your opinion in a good way!
