I needed a replacement for my old Palm TX and my Sony-Ericsson K790. I wanted to wait for the Xperia Pro, but I found myself at a pre-father's day sale and decided on the Xperia X10 mini pro.
Alas, there was none in stock, so I looked around and liked the P500. QVGA, GPS, 3.2 MP camera and Android 2.2 was pretty much the spec I wanted, and at just around $350 US, it was an instant winner.
To me there's been no disapointment at all, just bliss all over :)
neha, 13 Jun 20111> resolution of this Camera is very very Low, its not 3pixel but its 1pixel...
2> ... more1)You might not have changed the settings of the camera to shoot better pics.
2)Maybe you are doing many tasks together thats why battery drains faster as far as i know it can be used a whole day(average).
3)Charger getting hot is normal but if its way too hot then you should get it checked.
1> resolution of this Camera is very very Low, its not 3pixel but its 1pixel...
2> Battery Life is very Very poor....
3 > Charger of this hanset gets Hot while charging within 2minutes..
TRUST me Only plus point of this hanset is its touch screen & android 2.2 that's it.....

some genuine competition.

rj, 12 Jun 2011Hi. is this phone really a great phone? I mean.. what are the good and bad side of this phone... moreBesides the dust problem, I am satisfied with the P500, I use it mainly as a browsing device for data in the internet.
The speed in connecting to internet and downloading data through WiFi is fast.
I must point out that the P500 is my first android phone.
LonelyGuy, 13 Jun 2011Thanks for the reply.
In the box there is only a sticker showing:
2... moreI do not know if all Serial Numbers (S/N) beginning with 011 correspond to November manufactured handsets. According to LG staff here, all S/N numbers beginning with 011 to 012 will definitely have the dust problem. Once again, this may or may not be true as they are known to fib. Also it was an oral statement. Buy at your own risk.
Still, it would be very useful if people who do not have the dust problem would mention their S/N and manufacturing dates here, so that we may make a *ROUGH* estimate how accurate this info is. Please remember to check carefully under sunlight. Very new phone are of course unlikely to have accumulated dust and lint... it builds up with time.
hey guys......is the dust problem now solved...??
i really lyk this fone...but this dust problem is making me think again n again...?
should i buy lg o1...or i should try any other??
Raccoon, 12 Jun 2011Manufacturing date is printed on box.
Many people who have got the dust cleaned have report... moreThanks for the reply.
In the box there is only a sticker showing:
3.an unlabelled bar code.
Does the 011 in S/N refer to November?
No other date related figures are printed on the box.
