balkan_warriror, 27 Dec 2011Should I buy Optimus Black or SE Xperia ARC/ARC S?Arc S any day
I have Bought this phone just few days back and would like to share my experience about it. LG Optimus black P970 looks good and its one of the slimest phone available in Market. But thats the only Prons about this phone. The phone battery just last for few hours. I normaly keep the phone connected to my computer through out the day which keeps it charged, but as soon as i leave the phone overnight stay the next morning it is found swithced off. But thats mainly due to applications runing on the back ground. But then again if its tagged to be a smart phone then it should had come with a longer battery life.
The Phone also comes with an outdate version of Android 2.2.2 where are most of its competitors are even launching cheaper phones with Android 2.3.4 Ginger bread. The battery life could have got little better if this phone would have run on Android Ginger bread instead of Android Froyo. More over LG has posted on Face Book India that it will launch the update in 1st week of Novemeber 2011. But till date there are no updates released in the market. Also the Sound quality both hearing and Loud speaker is very bad. When you keep it on Loud speaker it will sound like a cheap Chinees phones. If you are planning to use this phone for making long distance SIP or Internet calls then beware, this phone does not support SIP and VOIP through third party softwares such as Nimbuzz, Fring and Skype. What problem you will face is that when you call your friend on these software than your voice will start Echoing at his end, while you will barely be able to hear him on your handset. And if you keep it on Speaker then things become even worse as both of you will find lot of disturbances. Most of the competiton to this phone comes with a Scratch gaurd as standard accessories even when they are price a bit lower then LG Optimus P970. Hence to Summarised i would recommend not to buy this hand set as its just a Bad design and over all phone does not work upto the standard when compared with Samsung and Nokia Mobile phones.
In Continuation to my previous post about LG Optimus P970. I would also like to share my experience at the service center. WHen i visited them and told the problem about the voice communication they said the phone was Ok and could not solve it. On request when i compared it with another P970 at the service center i was convienced that the problem was not only with my phone but its will allthe P970 manufactured by LG. The Phone is having Major design and Manufacturing flaws and its not at all upto the standard with its competitors Samsung, Nokia and i would even say it cannot match Micromax A85 which is an indian brand but out performs the LG P970 and is also priced same.
Anyone have tried to use this phone for viber application?...Is it working?..Please advise, I need your opinion. Thank you.
there's one customs rom at xda but we have to root the phone
i'm thinking of it but i'm worry after rooting
if you done it pls tell thank
hey guys plz can any1 give me the list of best free apps from android market...
and does any1 noes how to get paid apps for free i tried 4shared but didnt worked...?!!!
This phone was gift to me, I would never have bought it myself.
Negatives to consider:
1)Poor battery life(partly an android problem, but this phone won't let you root it easily either to remove unwanted applications, god knows i have tried.)Lasts half a day on moderate use of music and wifi.
2)Can get sluggish. Poor for something with enough internal memory and RAM.
3)Agree with those who have said that LG's customer service is abysmal. No gingebread yet, and seems unlikely. The hardware ought to run ICS anyway.
Other shortcomings (these are personal grievances): I don't like phones that are too big or light. A phone is a calling device first and foremost and should be easy to hold for periods of time against your ear. A thin bare screen slab is not my idea of a usable tool.
I have now got an Xperia Ray, which is fast and properly hold-able, runs gingerbread and will get ICS sharpish. And is less expensive.
so....the phone is performing well but sometime it hanged while playing 3D Games the look is best the weight is best fits easily on hands.The only problem with my phone the secondary camera does not working properly. M y opinion is to buy its well....
I bought this 4 days ago.. !!
But this phone is laging a lot whil playing low riquirement games
Like fruit ninja
N it lags a lot while going though the menu :(( can any one help me ?
Hardware-wise this phone is good, but when coming to software, it's absolute rubbish.
well i took this phone...will let you know its a good phone in terms of built quality response & awesome display which other phones wont have...drawback is still running on froyo 2.2..only thing was at first bat back was not appreciable...then from market i downloaded system tool box in that got option of battery calibration...after doing those step got good battery back up...does anyone know how to boost bat..???
ICS OS upgrade will be introduced from the second and third quarters of 2012.
Eligible phones include the lastest LG Optimus LTE, Prada phone by LG 3.0, LG Optimus 2X, and others in the Optimu series.
