I really thought the LG P500 was a great phone - in ideal conditions that is. But now I have been totally letdown, and I'm very disappointed with it! In the home and with Wifi, the phone works well and you can clearly hear loud ringtones and sound, but out on the noisy street and with a crowd of people, it is hopeless. I missed so many important phone calls/mms as I couldn't hear the phone ring. While I was making important and urgent calls on the phone, it just freezes - I have to open the back cover and take off the battery to restart (long wait for boot up). This phone even froze when you unlock the screen.
Other cons of this phone includes: lack of internal memory; connecting and disconnecting a call freezes - touch screen unresponsive; live wallpapers slows phone down; too many apps slows down the phone; you can not see the screen in sunlight - you have to find shade; no flashplayer for flash websites; long boot up times; constant problems with LG suite (for sync to pc)etc. I wasted £200 hard earned cash on this phone and I would NOT recommend it, it's not fit for the purpose, and a letdown when it comes to making important phone calls when you need it the most! No wonder LG does not even support this phone! Save your money for a better mobile phone!
I have this phone and it's great!! The only problem is the only problem is the dust that enters to screen... Do Somebody else have this problem??
I have this phone and it is great . The only problem I am having is when I get an MMS message I always get the error "Currently unable to download. Try again later". It never can download them and the message expires. Anyone can you help me pleeeeezzzzz?
Jo, 24 May 2011An excellent phone.....one of the best that I've used and never let's me down, anywhere. The a... moreBEST PHONE
- I just speak what I need and google searches it for, I have forgotten typing for Google search.
- Easy management of connections, I just scroll the top bar and click on the type of connection I need for internet. I.e GPS, or WI-FI or GPRS or Bluetooth. Just Amazing.
- SPEED - Amazing speed, I use basic applications and this phone has never hanged.
- Touch Screen - PRetty good, has never failed, very comfortable with the touch screen.
- Music - I Love the music quality, earphones are good enough, if you have beter earphones like BOSE or Shennizer, its mindblowing.
- Internet is pretty quick, downloads are so easily manageable, multiple downloads of files too does not slow its speed.
- ANDROID MArket, you have android, you have world in your hand. So many great applications and best part , lot of them are FREEEEEEEEEE !!!!
So many other things I just cant type.. but its a great phone and I am satisfied with it 100%.
