ok, so i've had the arena since may.
i love the camera... but thats about it.
it constantly lags, and randomly switches itself off while typing a message. reception is horrible.
(keeping in mind, i'm not a "fan" of any brand. - i've owned many different brands. the only one i can say i was ever fully satisfied with was a Nokia i had many years back, one of the first colour phones. i dropped it in ice-cream, a puddle of water and concrete many times, and it still worked... then it was stolen)
LG FAN FOREVER, 27 Aug 2009lg the best fone in the world..May I know what is best in LG?
lg arena is the best phone i ever had.previously i had the nokia 5800!its not good!the camera is not good and the screen is worst.I must touch the pen on the screen 3 times to go to the menu.i warn you,don't take it!!!
LG surely owes these mega sales thru marketing stategy! Pricing is much lower than the hectic prices of Nokia n SonyEricsson! N who doesnt watch Gossip Girl? Well i do, n i just wanted to be as "cool" as the onscreen lads playing around with the LG mobile...
anil, 29 Aug 2009What is the os being used in this phone?????????? I mean does it support any apps to be insta... moreDon't get the Arena - you'll be disappointed. No Apps being created for the phone.
What is the os being used in this phone??????????
I mean does it support any apps to be installed like sysbian & win device do....
I know this maybe a repeat question in this forum......
plzz suggest me as m panning to take this or nokia n97....
Have had the Arena for 4 months now and I hate it! It's in now for 3rd repair - keeps shutting down and freezing. No supported applications - you are stuck with what comes out of the box. Java based apps work but don't make full use of the screen. GPS is a waste of space. Buy an iPhone!!! I'm about to.
LG FAN FOREVER, 27 Aug 2009lg the best fone in the world..LG has 2 probs: terrible batt life and poor signal reception. And sadly, these 2 are the most important in your phone.
LG only attracts ppl by slashing their ph prices. Now viewty smart selling dem cheap in sg with operator contract. S$48 lol.
LG Fan No1 Katherine, 27 Aug 2009lg U rock.......MY Sock evernight....I had A LG VIEWTY and SECRET...I LOVE U LG..... lg the best fone in the world..
lg U rock.......MY Sock evernight....I had A LG VIEWTY and SECRET...I LOVE U LG.....
Pete, 26 Aug 2009Having owned the LG Arena now for some months this is what I have found:
Having had firmwar... moreWhat LG doesnt consider is how many have come back with problems? Firmware Upgrades (To fix freezing, restarting etc.) Sometimes it doesnt even work.
Dont call me no "Fan boy of Another brand" Im not a fan of any brand, i've used them all and LG is the worse. They should stick to something they are good at like air conditioners. Mobile phones are needed to be reliable. LG Failed at that. So did Sony Ericsson with the W910/W910i (I have one).
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2009"We admit we are fans of the S-class UI and the LG Arena as a whole, but as user reports have ... moreWhile GSM Arena does do a good job of reviewing the phones main capabilities, having them test every single feature in the entire phone would be extremely time consuming. Customer reviews are a lot more useful because they rely on the hands on experience of everyone that has one of the devices.
Win7RTM, 26 Aug 2009Seriously, are we making up problems such as phone restarting, SMS problems, hang booting? Lol... moretotally agree with you!!!
I have had my LG ARENA from the day it was lunched by orange back in april and the only problem i have is that
there is NO youtube over wifi ...
BUT some of the new firmwares have started to support this .... hopefully orange's firmware will follow
and apart from that ... EVERYTHING IS GREAT!!!
totally love this phone ...
Seriously, are we making up problems such as phone restarting, SMS problems, hang booting? Lol? My mom has had the LG dare for 2 months now (don't blame me I didn't pick verizon) but she loves the phone. Granted she's always asking how to use internet on the thing, she never had a problem with text messaging, touchscreen, internet, it never hung while booting. How could you people be jealous for them? You don't even WORK at a rival phone company, you just own the phone......ugh, I wish all the other fanboys could just be happy for LG.
The package looks really nice and scores above average as far as multimedia is concerned. However... the features don't make this a complete nor reliable phone. The display sometimes freezes without any reason. While typing text or E-mail messages the handset just shuts down and reboots by itself. Menu handling quickly becomes frustrating with large fingers, certainly as the touchscreen response is quite often simply absent... I've had mine since two months and believe me, I'll be glad to get rid of it and return to reliable handsets such as HTC of Nokia. No thanks LG
LadyBraBra, 26 Aug 2009So the iPhone 3GS sold 1 million units in 3 days while this hyped-up LG phone sells 1 million ... moreYou are a joker indeed! if that is your laughable statistics then we can say Apple will have 10 million sales in a month and that for sure will sum up to 30 mil in a quarter. It means Apple will take a 11% market share in global phone market in a quarter, higher than motorola and se combine. Nice joke!
Maybe we can tell the Iphone 3gs sells 1 million in 3 days then 2 pcs in next 3 days and nothing in succeding days. Now that is the real joke!
LG RULED, LG RULES AND LG WILL ALWAYS RULE!
So the iPhone 3GS sold 1 million units in 3 days while this hyped-up LG phone sells 1 million units in, like, 6 months? HAHAHA LG SUX!
Laughable sales indeed! iPhone killer indeed! Not.
iPhone and Apple FTW!
