Bought it last week. Great phone to use.
Not so difficult to use as this is my first smartphone.
The only problem which i am facing is battery backup.
I have to charge it daily :(
if anyone can go with this problem then this phone has no competitor in market.
camera quality is also good.
are you getting issues with the keyboard? have you tried installing finger keyboard apps?

kausarr, 12 Jan 2011hope u r d only person who faced dis...... now wat wid d 2nd faulty fone..... didn't u bang ... moreNot yet kausarr,I'm still hoping that it will be replaced with same unit but better one or with different unit, I really feel bad about buying the phone, I'm hoping also that LG Management would do something about the problem.
Which will be a better option to choose from galaxy,p500?
I am very much surprised with one blog telling about the draining of the battery.
I am eager to go for p500 but I am really confused?
kausarr, 12 Jan 2011u really have 2 much of tech gyan..
i am not on gsmarena rather on prateek gupta's blog :) ..... moreHi,
Whatever little 'gyan' i possess about the optimus one is due to these very opinions and reviews which i read regularly. It is all mutual interaction and sharing of experiences. All i want is to help the people in getting to know the android so that those who want to explore more about the phone get a headstart in discovering the limitless dimensions of android. One thing i have realised is that there's almost always a solution to the 'problems' which people face while using the android. Honestly, i still have a lot to learn from you guys. Your queries and inquisitiveness inspire my to discover more about the optimus one.
Even I was earlier reluctant to buy the phone due to the 'brand' name that it carries with it. But honestly speaking, i waited for around 2 months studying reviews and specs about different phones including those that didn't fit my budget! Before that i was hellbent on buying the nokia symbian i.e. C5 or X6 and then came to know about android OS. The other good phones in this price range are the galaxy 3,SE xperia and HTC wildfire but all i can say is that the optimus one outclasses them all. And the fact is that it sold 1 million units in just 45 days! The optimus series of phones is simply fab and it has surely transformed my pessimistic thinking about LG phones. The optimus 2X which is yet to arrive is already being touted as the 'iphone killer'! Recently talks were going on about the new Huawei X5 and X6 which will cost aroud Rs. 17000 and it has great specs, but i cannot comment upon the reliability of those features until more reviews pour in. In the end I would like to say that the optimus is an amazing phone for its price.
ahmad, 12 Jan 2011thanx alot prateek. what about videotone.Hi,
Try the app 'Vringo' for videotones.
I'm planning 2 buy this phone. I've heard that the on-screen keyboard response s slow n poor unlike other capacitive touchscreen phones; ie, it produces a delay to launch an app in main menu(or in any other place) after u select that apps.
So guys who have got this phone tell me, s it true? If so s it tolerable n s there any soln 4 it...??
Hiiiiii guys plzzzz answer me what will i purchase LG p500(Optimus), Samsung Galaxy 3 or HTC wildfire ?????
plzzzzzzz ans immediately.

Prateek Gupta, 12 Jan 2011Hi,

I just bought one at parksquare makati at adi store last Jan 7, 2011 after 2 days went to service center for diagnostic and to request replace because battery draining faster even on standby mode and have to charge 2x a day, went to adi store lg p500 was replace w/ new same item happened Jan 12, 2012 and to my observation the item given has the same problem, I.'m so disgusted I feel cheated by the store and by LG, to the future buyers please tink wisely before purchasing their products.

HiMAnsHU, 12 Jan 2011 i hav a couple of questions >>
1. how do block any particular number form calling oR ... moreHi,
You can blacklist numbers if you use Handcent SMS. Long press the thread of the people that you want to block->choose "blacklist" at the context menu and confirm. The thread will disappear (you can unblacklist it and view all blocked messages later).
If you want to block a call, add the number to your contacts. Go to contacts->press upon that contact->press the hard menu button->options->check incoming calls(send calls directly to voicemail).
For transferring contacts, go to contacts->more->import/export->import from sim card.
navind, 12 Jan 2011Can anyone suggest me real time and good app from market for BSE and NSE stocks and shares...
For stocks, you can use the app 'top Indian stocks'. You can find it at the market.
As far as taskillers are concerned i would like you to go through this article - http://lifehacker.com/5650894/android-task-killers-explained-what-they-do-and-why-you-shouldnt-use-them
In short, taskillers sometimes kill essential CPU cycles or android applications required by the system to work properly. You can do 2 things-go to settings->applications->manage applicatons->running->select the application which is running unnecessarily->force stop. This is the easiest method to prevent an app from using battery and CPU(and better than taskillers). You can also go to settings->about phone->battery use->select an app->force stop.
Note: Rooting is not safe as it can 'brick' your phone.(No recovery,no reboot)
