Hey Carbonize you seem to have all the answers..... do you know if it is possible to remove the time and date from the display on the main screen?
- cant find any options to remove it.
If people like Sam would actually supply a correct email I wouldn't have to waste space here with a reply. To use a photo for the contact it has to be taken at 72x72 as stated on page 35 of the manual.
Anyway this phone reminds me a lot of the Motorola T720 I over three years ago in terms of the software. Maybe LG should stop trying to mimic Samsungs software and try to mimic Motorola as they've always had the better software. Hell even the wowlg site is a poor rip off of the samsungmobile site.
i have both the se k750i and the lg p7200. i would say in terms of mp3 and cam quality both are the same - well maybe the k750i is slightly better:).
however i really like the p7200's design. nice feeling in your hands, and the analog clock in the front screen is really cool. attracts attention and gets compliments every time! the included wired remote is really a big plus.
gui navigation and typing sms are a tad slow but tolerable. one bad thing is the battery life which just lasts me less than 2 days with average use (about 5 calls, 5 sms, 2 hrs of mp3 a day).
all in all a fine and well-built phone, and highly recommended!
what's the specific size for contact photo?
I can't seem to find that in my manual. Can elaborate?
"Anyone know how to remove the time and date from the main Screen????"
It is good one. But I was a bit disappointed with the flash. It is not really a flash but a steady dim diplay of white light.
i have a very important question
how much is the capacity of trans flash card of p7200?
128 mb or higher?
please answer it
I withdraw my previous comment about the battery life. I put it on charge for 24 hours and this seems to have fixed it. The texting is still dire and as somebody else has stated there are to many stages involved in doing something as simple as sending a text message. Also it still takes 4 seconds for the camera to start up then about 2 seconds to take a pic.
To attach a photo to a contact the photo needs to be of a specific size as stated in the actual manual.
Hey Daniel... there's no option in the display menu to remove time and date! have you actually mannaged to rid the main screen of it??
to take off the time and date go to the menu then on to the display option and you can change the wallpaper, screensaver on either the main screen or front screen or you can take off the time and date.
How do you guys use photo as photo ID???
It always say "Phonebook pictures empty". Into which folder must I put my photos in in order to use as PhotoID??
Thanks so much
This is a great phone. Period. to inform you guys the P7200 is also the G7200 and the G912 - It's the same thing only different model in various countries. To add to the discussion: it does play mp4 videos, the only slow moment in the UI is loading up photos to viev fullscreen (other than that it works fast enough for me). Messaging is easy and you do not need a toothpick to type because the keyboard is indeed flat but also big enough for your thumb. The screen rotates 180* and closes flat - it activates the camera. Many options there - and the speed is acceptable - if you want to take real photos get a Nikon 12mpix pro camera - othwerwise don't complain 'cause this beauty does it's job. The pics come out nice. To synch it with the PC you need to enable the MODEM option in the tools menu. Many hours' work has tought me this ;-) The sync tool backs up the phonebook and it's really all i need. You can get 3rd party soft off the net if you want to add a soda fountain to the damn thing ;-) Just kidding. All round it's very easy to use and a hell of a lot better than the Razr, if only due to the fact that the interface is userfriendly and logical. If you get it in your hands you will not be disappointed. Best regards and good hunting!
First off a question....
Anyone know if its possible to remove the time and date from the main Screen (i know holding down the side button removes it from the front screen but i cant find any options to get rid of it from the main screen)
Second a few words about this bad boy.....
Ive had this phone about 3 weeks now and having used nokias for the past couple of years, i found adapting to the P7200 suprisingly easy due to a nice, logical menu layout.
I use the phone quite a lot for texts and yeah the keypad is slightly ridgid and almost completly flat making texting slightly slower but the keypad looks great so it doesnt bother me.
The battery doesnt have a huge cappacity, but its not supprising considering all the gagets there are to play around with. I found that my battery lasts quite a lot longer if i turn off the back-light. - Also if you use the main speakers to play mp3s your battery will not last very long at all. But I personally dont see the point of listening to music without earphones - unless you are showing off, in which case you dont deserve a long battery life!
So in short... The phone looks amazing from every angle and feels fantastic- you will never get tired of twizzeling that sreen round. Its a bit thirsty on power but would that stop you from buying a sports car? And getting used to texting might take you a little while- but ive just found myself writting shorter, more simple texts.
Hope this helps anyway, Yuk.
I would like to know a few things about this phone before buying it:
1) Slow UI: explain? is it slow when booting up or just when saving the photos?
2) Battery Life: How often does it need charging if i use it app 1 hr talking a day, txt messages.?
3) Do you reccommend it?
record in 3gpp format only
camera still rubish
2 speaker and the sound still lowww
thanks to phone personality.
a pity i bought the phone before i could see your reply, i guess the page was cached in my browser and so for a few days i don't see any new replies.
so i bought the phone,.. like you said, the 2 greatest weakness is the battery life and slow ui,.. i take at least twice as long typing an sms on p7200 compared to k700i, my previous phone. other than that i like the picture quality and the fact that it can be used as an external hard disk,... will be better if the usb connector is inside the phone so you can pull it out and plug it in a computer whenever you need to, as opposed to carrying the cable with you.
Saving pictures does take a while, though not 30 seconds, I have the auto-save on.
when the camera is set on super fine mode and highest resolution (1600x1200), there's at most 10 seconds stop between taking pictures.
Overall, the phone is a good buy. one of the best among its category.
