jainsarthak, 02 Aug 2011I am using this phone with CM7 since last two months. following are the pros and cons.
... morewhich build are u using of CM7 ??? is it final version out or u are talking about nightly builds???
u have mentioned HDMI mirroring is good,is it working properly???
coz i havent found any CM7 build which plays HDMI mirroring flawlessly.just let me know if u have,thanks...cheers :)
and one more thing are u using video mods from XDA??? or u r talking about pure CM7 video performance??? i was using mid package from XDA dev which was as good as any handicam(infact better) !!! but the only flaw was that the sound was too low.
I am using this phone with CM7 since last two months. following are the pros and cons.
* battery life
* LG official upgrade support (thanks to cyanogenmod, It dosen't matter to me)
* speaker sound volume is lower than avg.(quality is good though)
* super fast dual core 1ghz processor, along with nvidia tegra it is snappy fast and awesome.
* Awesome IPS LCD screen, better colors than AMOLED screens, as they have a greenish tinge, apart from sunlight amoled screens suck.
* hdmi out rocks, play HD movies and games.
* it supports full HD recording at 30 fps (cm7) and 8M still. I stopped carrying my digicam and handicam now.
* metal rim and brushed metal finish, anti sip back cover and gorilla glass makes it beautiful and robust.
I love this phone.....
and cyanogen, you rock!!!!

heii guys, today i try ADW launcher and i found out that is much smoother than with original LG home, try out its amazing! :D
they were sad that gingerbread will come in June-July, today is the last day of july and i just dont belive it will come today. Can somebody tell me why is the way it is? :/
ab, 29 Jul 2011the difference must be seen in overall usage mate.it wont be visible but if you are experience... moreyeah. 1 UI thing they changed from 2.2 to 2.3. the battery is vertical instead of horizontal. lol
nua, 29 Jul 2011im also dissapointed with the 2.3 update delay. LG said they would released it on July but now... morethe difference must be seen in overall usage mate.it wont be visible but if you are experienced enough you will surely get it.(i am not saying this rudely at all)
and i was on CM7 nightly rom for some while with O2X.so i have tasted the GB on O2X and let me tell you this device becomes lightning fast !!! even my EDGE connection was working like 3.5G on GB 2.3.4 !!!thats the reason i am waiting for the official LG GB version for this device.
and regarding tab...if u have upgraded your device to GB then u must be having few visible tweaks of pure GB...like - vertical battery monitor and full green slide down bar etc. and regarding performance changes i would again say the negligible difference must be there.i had tab 5 months back and it was very smooth even on 2.2.
im also dissapointed with the 2.3 update delay. LG said they would released it on July but now its 29th already. but ive been using P1000 tab before and after the 2.3 update. and after i update it myself, i cant even differentiate between 2.2 and 2.3. it really looks the same though. and i dont even know whats the difference between it. the update log shows something slightly here slightly there.
According to this site the 2.3 Gingerbread update has been released.

i am planning to buy this phone i should buy this?look mate,
you can definitely buy it if you have no issues with the latest OS update.coz still no signs shown by the LG officials regarding that.it will be out soon but its already very late. almost 1 nd half year old devices like SE X10 has got the GB update.
i have no complains regarding the power packed performance of this device.i myself choose this device over SGS-II coz of its NVIDIA chipset.
i have never said its a bad device,choice is yours.be wise and choose what suits you rather than what i feel or anybody else feel.
good luck mate,cheers :)
