Having owned the LG Arena now for some months this is what I have found:
Having had firmware V10d_00 (Australia and now V10m_02 (United Kingdom) the phone:
Lags, in camera in low light, in the full QWERTY (iPhone-like experience GSMARENA, I think not, only in terms of responsiveness, it lags so much)
Phone restarts in SMS editor, and screen freezes at times, requiring a battery reset.
1 million sales on marketing alone, because the phone cannot possibly be regarded as running stable firmware. SE W910 owners, you can relate :) And I work with phones for a living, this phone is so below my expectations. Good luck with future products LG
well! jealous fans of other brands never knew what hit them.Wahahaha!
jealousy coming from all fanboys, LG arena was not a big hit and LG managed to sell 1 million of it.
"We admit we are fans of the S-class UI and the LG Arena as a whole, but as user reports have it, it's been plagued by several issues concerning poor implementation of features or just plain limitations."
As user reports have it? What about your hands on experience and review about this phone? GSM arena review had never talked about any poor implementation of features. Hah! absurd!
whoo! lots of fake LG owner in this forum. Other fans are jealous of the success the arena has achieved. It is fast seller because it is an excellent phone. This is the truth for the love of the Mobile god.
I have been using this phone for 2 months now the reception sucks, had to go back to my Nokia N85. Never will buy from LG again. Dont know how much I can sell it for but probably not much, maybe half of what i got it for.
Your so rite mate, LG have not got good customer service and their phones freeze and turn off and they have not any firmware updates which is ******!!
I really dont know how they have reached this mark because apart from having a good inetrface LG's customer service is not good at all and they have no firmware updates what so ever. What a JOKE!!!
People will only realise this when they buy any of their phones with the new interface. Hahaha! Good luck ppl.
[deleted post]You are obviously hating out your ass, what are you a nokia fan?
I loved that bit of news!!! It's like giving you a rose with one hand, while punching you in the face with the other! "We admit we are fans of the S-Class UI, but the device as a whole sucks, plagued with problems!" Lol!!! Ok, joke over. Tried the Arena... I'd say it's not bad, but it isn't good enough to stand to other touchscreen heavy-hitters (Omnia HD, iphone 3GS, etc..). I'd rather go for a Jet...
Having problems with mine... Locking up... touch screen unresponsive... cant shut off T9 all together... Is there a firmaware upgrade or something? I am in USA and LG USA can not help... Anyone have anything?
marketing? not really. the phone is really very sleak, nice and cute, plus it has capacitive screen and very good specifications. that's it, eureka! :)
LG is getting better.. hope arena will decrease its price..so could grab one haha..
