Anonymous, 03 May 2011Thanks for the reply. Will surely check this one out. The price is great too. But are you sure... moreMy bundled headset was almost unusable for voice calls. For music it was ok. Got it replaced in warranty today. They replaced it without even checking it out.
Tried 2 new headsets at the service center and concluded that these bundled headsets are not of good quality - made several calls and everyone told me that sound thru the headphone's mic does not sound so good... esp. when compared to the phone's mic. Even at my end, the other person's voice did not sound as good on the headphones, as it does thru the the phone.
For music, the sound quality is not too bad... but I expect better.
As for the dust under the screen issue, those who think they do not have it, just take a good look in sunlight with the screen brightness turned up (if low). I too thought I did not have it, until I checked in the sun.
They disassembled it in front of me and cleaned it. They said they replaced some part so that it does not reoccur. Forgot to check which part they ment... as other issues occupied my attention.
Very disappointing that LG designs a otherwise good phone with such obvious defects. Not at all happy about letting service centers open such a new phone. Well, at least they did most of the stuff in front of me... now I can consider doing it myself.
Lastly, about the India, Pune, Dhole Patil Road service center - no AC (though I noticed 1 was installed, at least in the waiting room). Without AC, impossible to keep things relatively dust free, so you are likely to come away with some more dust. :| Even few other things not quite upto the mark... like at the 2 Nokia Care centers I'v seen. But the staff was helpful. I noticed that almost all other customers came with basic, low end phones. Maybe thats why LG has kept its service a li'l more "basic"? Hopefully, LG improves it's service along these parameters, if it expects to sell pricier smartphones.
Guess I'll just have to buy a better headset... one with noise cancellation circuitry. Can anybody adivce on which mobile headsets (with mic) are good?

shivam, 04 May 2011sir i want to ask that where is the antivirus ? what's the function of taskiller and wi fi ?Hey Shivam,
LG P500 has not any defalut Antivius. You have to install the antivirus from adroid market, there are many option of antivirus.
About Task killer and Wifi:
TASK KILLER: this is used for stoping the unwanted services and appliaction running on phone and also free the RAM Memory.
WIFI: Enable you to connect your phone with available WIFI connection and use the Internet Service without applying any wire or data connection. But the range of wifi connectivity is not much.

O1 has an edge over all these samsung midrange model and HTC wildfire with Display resolution (320 x 480 pixels, 3.2 inches). All said model have about 240 x 320 pixels, 3.2 inches. Believe me this really mater in user interface experience.
