own it for a period by now ! people get excited on the first month of purchase and give feedback it looks either too good or too bad !!
1. decent android phone at 10k division
2. good for people who like gaming
3. battery backup is too good(I dint test with 3G)
4. touch is smooth
5. you can play 700mb rips directly on the phone(*.avi,*.mp4) video playback quality is good
6. performance is good
7. not many hangs so far
1. sound is not that exceptional as music editions
2. phone call clarity is little low
3. 3mp cam for 10k is bad
4. sd memory card gets unmounted and asks to enter a memory card once in a week. you need to restart the phone only then memory card works you cant even mount
its a idle phone who uses the phone for some experimentation like rooting changing roms , game freaks , for browsing , social networking folks ! for music freaks it a bad choice ! i am using 2.3.4 on my optimus one you i need not charge for 3 days using applications and net for 2-3 hours a day. its a awesome phone..

thanks 4 replying me.
I want to go in for the p500 white colour.
I surely ... moreI don't know if the O1 will put up with your rough use. Generally speaking, touch screen phones tend to not put up with too much abuse. Besides the O1 does not come with Gorilla glass either, so chances of screen breaking could be higher.
I don't think scratches will be more apparent on white than on black. In fact they may be more visible on black. Whether it begins to fade off will depend on the quality of the materials LG is using. And which dirt are you talking about getting rid off? If battery cover gets scratched, you should be able to replace it, though I have no idea about availability or price. But what will you do abou the "dirt" that gets under the screen? There is no solution for that. And once you have it there, believe me, dirt and scratches elsewhere will not matter, so relax, lol.
If you buy online, buy from reputed sites like Flipkart. Letsbuy is an option due to discounts, but you can't compare it with Flipkart in any parameter. Both should give you a valid invoice with IMEI and other info (which I'm told they do), so warranty should be valid. Smaller local shops, after bargaining, often give better prices than most online shops.
2GB memory card is part of the deal.

thanks 4 replying me.
I want to go in for the p500 white colour.
I surely xpect some rough use wid d fone. So if i use the white one, will the scratches b more apparant then the white colour? + will the white colour lose its lusture after repeated use? Isnt there any way to get rid of the dirt if the white colour begins to fade off or lose its lusture?
1more thing. Is it safe to purchase it online? If yes then where should i buy?
Will the warrantee work in a service center if i buy it online!
Is the fone providing any memory card with it?
[deleted post]It comes with both the BT and wired headset. But as mentioned earlier, the wired headset is worse than pathetic. No idea about the BT headset.
AnonD-8622, 23 Jun 2011Raccoon!!!exactly agreeing with you regarding the headset, and as for dust i have been using t... moreAs I'v mentioned before, even my phone was used in very low dust environment. If you use it like that, it will take longer for dust to build up. You may not see it in just one month (hope you have checked in sunlight). But most people will not be able to use it like this all the time, so it will appear sooner and ruin the show. Then the center may likely ruin it completely.
On the other hand it may be possible that your phone is amongst those that have the issue fixed by LG (as claimed by Service Center, may not be true). Since this is supposed to depend on the Serial No. Could you please share the S/N no. (only 1st 3 figures are sufficient) and Manufacturing date with us (only if its made in 2011). Others who have 2011 handsets, kindly consider posting your experience with this info.
As for headsets, I was looking for one too, but could not find one with mic that worked. Some work only for music - mic and button won't work. Philips has some headsets (with extra connector for different phones)but reviews are not good.
