I am a gadget fan and used to read so many Mobile Phone Reviews. For the last six months I was looking for a phone and I was very lucky not to buy.
Nokia N8 and other Android phone. Last week I bought LG Optimus One P500.
It's a TREASURE!!!
Runs the latest Android 2.2 Froyo!!!
Excellent Build Quality.
Excellent Screen Clarity for both Photos and Videos.
The blend of Clear Screen and Android OS with
attractive fonts, makes this a modern phone.
It gives you Rs.35000 phone experience in just Rs.13000/-. It seems its getting sold out very
The phone looks good with a steel frame around
When I opened Yahoo Mail!, I felt like James Bond.
Really modern interface, clean listing of mails
Audio is decent compared to some Windows
and other OS based phones. Interestingly we
will get good audio by directly connecting to the
speaker without using any converter.
FM Radio is also good. You need to connect
to microphone cord to enjoy FM.
The earphone is bud form, so it fits firmly
esp when you are travelling. But be careful,
when you walk and drive, as you may not
hear low noise.
The only thing I am not satisfied are:
1. Google Map is very very slow, almost unusable.
Interestingly my previous Asus Windows phone,it
rendered just like a computer and I saw buildings
Is there any one who can comment on this?
2. If you use lots of internet, then the battery
drains out fast. Say after 8 hours, better need
Seven Desktop Screens!!!
Native Browser do not support Flash. But its not
a problem. You can install Sky Fire!!! It supports
Plenty of Android Apps!!!
Google Search by Voice Recognition.
The camera is amazing. I liked the zoom feature
of the camera and video.
THIS IS A GADGET AND A VALUE PHONE. 200% WORTH
Sd card with specfuc class is not true. guys. i had the problem with my sandisk 8gb mem and its a class 6. It kept restarting and rebooting. now im using a 4gb mem card that is class 2. It stopped rebooting ang vwry stable now. it lies on the 8gb card. just dont use an 8gb card. nothing else. i hope they fix it at the 2.3 update
