Pdfa, 04 Jan 2011Thanx buddy. U having this phone. Hows it?
I am worried about its lg tag.Hi,
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.

Pdfa, 04 Jan 2011Does this phone have live widgets like quench xt3. What is the difference between live widgets... moreHi,
Yes, live widgets and live wallpapers are supported on this phone. 'Live' indicates that the widget is able to send and receive online information when an internet connection is active. One example of live widgets that i use is the 'clock and weather widget'. This widget shows the current time as well as the current temperature.
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2011Okei, but that camera has big diffrence compared to Wildfire's camera?Yes. But that is where you have to prioritize. What do you need - a better camera or a phone that is overall smoother and performs better with better screen resolution and RAM?
Abhishek, 04 Jan 2011I am having issues with being able to connect to the pc.
Please help as to how to get that do... moreHi,
First of all go to settings->SD card and phone storage->uncheck 'Mass storage only' option. Now connect the phone to the PC via USB. A green android bot will appear which will notify you that the USB is connected. Now you have 2 options:
1)Select 'Turn on USB storage' on the phone. The green bot will now turn orange.(Alternatively, you can open the notification bar and press upon 'Select to copy files to/from your computer') Now you can access your memory card through your computer. To disconnect press 'Turn off USB storage' on the phone
2)To connect via PC suite: When the green bot appears, don't select 'turn on usb storage'. Just open PCsuite and select 'connect phone'. Now you will be able to sunchronize your phone with the PC and also be able to update your phone.
Does this phone have live widgets like quench xt3. What is the difference between live widgets and widgets. Somebody please help. THANX
ashish, 04 Jan 2011i bought lg p500. very nice & great phone. i want to change my sd card with 8gb or higher ... moreHi,
I use sandisk 8gb card. 16gb will also work fine.
You just need to copy paste all the contents from your current sd card to your computer and then from the computer to your new sd card.
Okei, but that camera has big diffrence compared to Wildfire's camera?
admit, 04 Jan 2011love this phone, got it 2 days back, can someone explain how 2 remove preinstalled app.....
Open OI file manager->press the 'home' button on top left of the screen->system->app, Here you can find all the preinstalled apps and can delete the ones you want to. But be careful about what you remove because some apps are required by the android system to work.
Has anyone tried the google maps 5.0 on this device? does the 3d rendering works?
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2011But is that multitouch big miss?It has me multi touch and works smooth....
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2011But is that multitouch big miss?P500 does have multi touch. The fancy pinch and zoom will all work. But it may not have the accuracy of those $500 highend phones.
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2011Is it better than HTC wildfire? wildfire has good multitouch and better camera. Which i should buy?In my opinion Optimus One is better. It has better screen resolution, better RAM and more importantly comes loaded with Android 2.2 and is confirmed to receive 2.3. Also the phone is very developer friendly, which means it can be easily rooted and many 3rd party ROMs are available already.
Murthy, 04 Jan 2011Hi Neo.,
I have rooted my P500,
how to tether the clock from 600mhz to 800Mhz~ and higher... moreMurthy,
You need to install a third party ROM, like for example the Megatron ROM which will overlock the phone to 728 MHz, enables App2SD for all apps and also moves the dalvik cache to memory card, thereby freeing more internal memory. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=870640

LG Philippines just tweeted that the Gingerbread upgrade might come this June 2011. Link: http://twitter.com/#!/myLifesGoodPH
Please tell me that can this really be upgraded to Android 2.3 gingerbread? and can we change the themes easily?
