Does anyone know if we can install softwares like Emoze for Push email & fring on this phone.. Pls advise..

I'm application fan, me ruthless UIQ fan :D feature like external lock, camera mod, music players etc are compulsory
+nice, smooth interface with good video perf. HTC + SE, are u learning!?
+sexy design, even if it looks like a iClone.
-not a smartphone. big problem here, because it means u can't hack and customise phone to hearts' content.
-3 inch screen = b1tch to type on, even in landscape. I *HAD* and X1 and got frustrated trying to type with *ANY* soft keyboard in landscape mode (u name it, I've tried it - Tengo thumb, shapewriter, HTC EzINput 1.5, the X1 R3A Rom new keyboard...)
This phone looks nice, but by god does it look SLOW! The media and contacts homepage is a joke! You could spend an hour trying to scroll through at that pace!
Say what you want about the iphone, at least it's quicker.
NANA, 26 Apr 2009Well..this is a nice great phone.Those who said this phone is bad or whatever shit..probably y... moreWell your friend is wrong. Iphone is great and this phone is great,too.
iphone has less features but got 10000 applications more than this phone which you can install.This phone has good features but you won't have many choices for applications.
Dhir, 26 Apr 2009Hey guys what is meant by smart phone capabilities??That means less applications are available for the phone. and you won't have applications which can control all of the features of the phone. that is bad. But if you're not a fan of applications, it has a good side! it is faster than smartphones.
bummy, 26 Apr 2009I agree... GSMarena is most likely getting paid to advertise this phone. Look at home page! ... morewell like 1 mon ago before lg released the phone to stores the rate was 8.7 up yo 9 and since lg released the phone to stores it have fallen down to 8.1 that means the phone is a cause most people vote after testing the phone .
bummy, 26 Apr 2009I agree... GSMarena is most likely getting paid to advertise this phone. Look at home page! ... moreWell, if they are getting paid, I guess it wont be a problem for them to up the stats on the phone page too. And BTW, I don't see LG Arena on the home page stats at all. So, what you say sounds like bullcrap.
Well..this is a nice great phone.Those who said this phone is bad or whatever shit..probably you're not happy.Cause maybe your current phone is not any better than LG Arena. All i can say is..this phone is worth to buy. The phone is gorgeous! Its better than Iphone. My friend is using Iphone..and he say it SUCKS LIKE HELL! Iphone look nice..but the function is CANNOT MAKE IT!
Thanks! Great review. But about sound: no bass = no buy. Same thing happened with 5800 XM. It doesn't have any bass. Music's great but its completely flat. Listen to some Sony A72x or other same generation player and you'll know what I mean. I'm using $300 ear plugs, and no, you won't know the difference with bundled headphones ($1 China headphones, Sony has better things bundled).
How good Arena's sound quality if compare to Sony Ericsson W980 and W705? Is it really deliver good sound when enhance dolby?
hani, 25 Apr 2009well i see gsmarena is making a good marketing for lg km900 arena whats the secret?I agree... GSMarena is most likely getting paid to advertise this phone. Look at home page!
This phone is ranked #1 on user votes with 8.744...
But if you look at the actual rating on the phone page its only 8.1, 8.1, 8.0 rating.
So obviously the rating was cheating to have more screen space :/
Back to the phone itself... The S-Class user interface (judging from the video provided) is still rather slow! You can feel it most on the image browser. Its much like LG Viewty, when you have too many images on your phone, the image browser takes up to 10 seconds to load a picture.... very very bad loading time, and you won't experience it till you but it and start taking pictures.
The home screen....Black to over-saturated colours is so 1999... So ugly!
LG Arena does have better camera, and external memory slot... But Iphone still has its MASSIVE application library. No other company is going to beat that. Apple is waaaay ahead of any of these other phone companies reach. Win by applications.
hani, 25 Apr 2009well i see gsmarena is making a good marketing for lg km900 arena whats the secret?but of course...it's obvious...when a review says the phone is good then they 100% advertise it.if it's bad - so then they're wrong again for some imaginary reason...
if you think so, then don't read it...
well i see gsmarena is making a good marketing for lg km900 arena whats the secret?
I'm using the Arena and I didn't notice any bass loosing. And I use the bundled headphones.
But I suppose you can get to a store and try it to be sure.
I want to upgrade my phone. I currently have SE W960 that sound of the music through bundled headphone is good to me. I am a little worry about bass response of Arena. I usually listen hip hop music. Any comments from anyone who already had Arena about the sound quality? What headphone you use to get excellent sound quality? Thanks
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2009firstWhat? No DivX (AVI) video recording? Only 3GP standard, all be it at high resolution 720x480 30fps ..., is there at least wide screen 3GP capture? Even the 2007 LG Viewty KU(U)990 can record in DivX and then at wide screen 640x384 30fps ... this is shocking that the newest high end greatest handset from LG does not do what the 2007 Viewty did.
Same goes for the camera, its basically no advancement from the 2007 Viewty.
The Renoir is not that great but at least it was an advancement over the Viewty.
Waiting to see what the Viewty 2 has on offer.
