Yes indeed I agree ,this might not be the best phone around but in the netherlands a price of €400,- is incredibly decent and quite affordable with a contract that's what makes this phone very attractive to me I've been a long time sonyericsson user and would love to get my hands on an Xperia but if it's price doesn't decrease soon. Then this will be the better option only downside is no smartphone OS, so rubbish youtube quality and because of the new Hi-res screen also very few 3rd party apps in contrast to the other LG touch phones with WQVGA res. But all in all I think it's price is what's gonna make it a hit!
Sahara Dessert Envir, 27 Mar 2009can anyone figure why GSMarena are so hyped up on this phone.. you guys are practically jackin... moreI am also so hyped up with this phone and maybe i can explain why this phone is so important (from a user's perspective).
In the last 6 months I searched a phone which is compact, has a big screen with a good resolution (screen of arena is also a bit smaller for me),a not bad camera, 3.5 headphone input(and a very good audio quality), gps, wifi and hspda. All of these were included in such a small package for the first time (as i know). I also tried nokia 5800 and give it back. Because its camera was so bad and it was a bit oversized for me. I also don't look to htc touch hd and samsung omnia hd because of their sizes and prices. So I don't say this phone is perfect. But when I consider my priorities this one seems the best option until now.
what about the audio quality and telephony - speaker phone test?
i thought that were important because i think its a music phone!!
"As the LG KM900 Arena supports multi-touch you can zoom in images with the pinching gesture well known from Apple's iPhone - we really hope that Apple don't have a patent pending on this one or LG are toasted."
i was thinking that too. such a nice phone but why look like an iphone.
thats the onli downside
can anyone figure why GSMarena are so hyped up on this phone.. you guys are practically jacking off to it in every Review, Preview, News..
what just cause its got "Arena" in the end?
As for the phone, its just another Feature Touch Phone.. thats it.. whatever adds onto that .. Better Touch Screen, Better Ui...
its still in that league and hense comparing it to the 5800 or Omnina HD and Even the iPhone is a dumb move which will be made by millions.
get a life iPhone freaks (not you GSMarena)
