Carphone Warehouse UK no longer sells this phone on their wesite, and LG does not even support this phone, so why bother buying this phone, it's not worth it!
This phone looks good, but has faults: it freezes; loses time; has very little internal memory to store apps;long start-up times; not that practical when using outdoors and in noisy crowds as voice quality is not great; Ringtones sounds nice and loud when in a quiet place, but out in a street/ busy area you can't hear the phone ringing meaning you often miss calls;camera pictures are great, but phone can lose pictures if you quickly switch to another app from the camera; LG PC suit is totally rubbish as the programme can't sync with your phone; you have to wait a while until you can answer a phone call - if you quickly swipe to answer, you may find you phone freezing. And also when finshing a call and try to switch it off, the phone can freeze causing the phone call to still be on and wasting credit - in this case you have to take the battery out as quick as you can and switch the phone back on - this is crap.
The only thing I can say is good is the battery, it lasts longer than other phone. This phone is not good as a work, home or a business phone, it's not that practical in use. It's only good to have this phone as a second or side phone where you don't have to make much calls!

It can detect upto 2 or 3 touch at one time. So touch is smooth..:). Better than others in this range.... My friends found it better than C7 touch.... You will have no prob. With touch.

Also apart from this can you suggest any All in one Chat application(like yahoo,gmail,fb in one)?
I wanted to know if the Optimus one has Capacitive Touch / Resistive Toch screen as the LG website also quotes its in two tounges, at one place they say its capacitive touch where as in the specifications section they mention it as resistive touch.
I have more or less made up mind on buying this phone but just want to confirm on this touch method to make the final decision.
nagu, 30 Jun 2011Finaly i got p500 today guysWhat was the price ?
AnonD-5160, 30 Jun 2011Well personally i dont own an lg optimus one but i have played enough with it(my friends O1) t... moreI will add up to your comment. LG optimus1 has 480x320 resolution display which is far better than 320x240 screen of (GALAXY POP or FIT or WILDFIRE etc). browsing internet sucks on a low resolution screen,as you will not be able to read the small text. besides a GOOD display gives a better experience in everything.
I used the above factor in deciding OP1. now its upto you what really matters.
I personally recommend LG optimus . It's best in its class. Go to croma or eZone for better idea.

I need ... moreWell personally i dont own an lg optimus one but i have played enough with it(my friends O1) to say that it wont disappoint...its apparently the best in this price range...Cookie thing was long ago when LG was still trying to make a mark....Fit has only one advantage over Optimus one ie 5MP camera...apart from that Optimus one has the upper hand everywhere...The biggest PRO is the battery...You rarely see someone complaining about optimus one battery..You can cross check with the pprevious post whereas Fit has users crying over it allover the forum(check its page)..Also LG Software support is way better than that of Samsung...You might have heard that 2.3 is already out in some countries for optimus one...To sum it up all in a nutshell "I own a galaxy 551 and i regret everyday for not choosing optimus one when i had to"...
