1 GB processor
tempered-glass anti-scartch screen
dedicated 64MG graphic card
perximity and accelerometer sensors
high quality brushed metal build
FANTASTIC in-door developed UI (lg calls it S class) with elastic icons n cubic interface
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2009Hmm..i think LG is copycat of SE, the fonts,the screens,felt more familiar w/ SE phones..looks... more"LG is a copycat of SE"!?
even if it is i dont care since, believe it or not, I used to HATE LG b4 this Arena.
n to tell the truth i dont like their other fonez what has attracted me so much is ARENA itself.
To Indra & Shino03
Arena IS a smartfone.it uses S class UI which takes on from where iPhone software left off...yes it resembles alot to iPhone UI but it is more fluid, more responsive, n of course more attractive.
in terms of touch response,Arena is the best ever.U can test it for yrself in a few weeks(i already have)
The build quality of Arena is also unprecedent among LG fonz.TWO marvelous features of Arena are BUILD QUALITY n SOFTWARE.
I am NOT an SE HATER...i just want to be realistic. i mean yes se has some good fonz just like every other company(I have a W810i too,n used to have p910i),BUT the two Flagship fonz of SE (Xperia and FUTURE Idou)are not made by SE. Y should a big company like SE go up to HTC and ask for help. couldnt they make a WinMo themselves, read Xperia specs, its like reading HTC fonz(maybe touch pro).
and DONT get me wrong i like this Idou fone on the whole, but its not my style since it is too big n bulky(maybe thats not a prob. to u), and u have to wait for the 3rd quarter of the year for it.
idou? it came from japanese which mean "move"? i'm not sure yet until i see the kanji..
nice product i think..but SE product in japan has greater display than this..most of SE product in here has full wide VGAscreen (840x480pixel)..excelent to watching tv..
Sony Ericsson is the man!
SE done big improvements in starting of 2009…. That’s really good………
3.5 inch Display
Walkman 4 player
3.5mm audio jack
SE sound quality and picture quality is really well. The designs are really well. Still I’m using K700i. I’m really sad to throw my K700i because I’m using more than 3.5 years in healthy condition.
I love SE.
LG is like a learning teenagers,while SE is their mentor..lol :) peace
Hmm..i think LG is copycat of SE, the fonts,the screens,felt more familiar w/ SE phones..looks exactly the same,specially the fonts..LG is the cheaper of SE version.
So LG Arena its for those ppls who want cheaper n simple touchscreen phone..LG Arena got flash UI, nice 5 megapxls of scheineider lens.. Feels like mid range if u want to compare w/ iduo that is so high class phone,so i think their market target is different.. Hmm..n i heard LG will go winmo,they cooperate together w/ microsoft, LG is going to produce smartphones too..LG phones going smart,i hope they work on durability of their batteries life cos its kinda lame..:) peace
Farrokh, 27 Feb 2009yes ARENA wont survive till then u no y? cuz since then a second version of ARENA has already ... morehw wondaful for u to forget dat SE brought u d k750i,w800,810,900,910,960,980 and nt forgeting d cyber-shot phones.r they nt gud phones?.b4 then nokia was busy giving our eye problems wit those poster color screen fons they sold at high prices.and til date no nokia phn can even match d w880i nor 910 picture quality so,wot d heck r u talking abt u SE HATER.SE brought sanity and competition to d market and we will crown our efforts startin wit idou
Shino03, 27 Feb 2009I checked LG arena's spec and I found out that it is not a smartphone because it doesn't have ... moreoh yes, i checked it again, arena is not a smartphone because LG didnt say the OS...iam sorry about that.
James, 27 Feb 2009Hi, I am really anticipating the camera performance of this phone. I have a N82 and it's came... more2ND this year or early 3rd 0f 2009.the cost shouldnt be more expensive than the phone 8 MP cameras are already in the market (like c905, INNOV8 and lg renoir)
indra, 27 Feb 2009in other word arena is also good. yes, arena is a smartphone like this phone..the UI is great ... moreI checked LG arena's spec and I found out that it is not a smartphone because it doesn't have any os like symbian, winmo or android but arena is a very capable phone that would please most people even if it's not the most equip phone. I didn't like LG before but because of their good strategies, I like them now. They make affordable phones without the cost of quality and I think they're better than Nokia and Motorola. And being in the same country is the reason I think why they are almost par with samsung
wow itz amazing fon..very nice..can i ask if there is TV out?anyone can help me?
indra, 27 Feb 2009what do you mean you said iam 'she'? iam not angry with you coz iam 'he' not 'she' is there ... moreHi, I am really anticipating the camera performance of this phone. I have a N82 and it's camera quality is good but not up to my expectations. In night shots, there are still some hot pixels and it totally ruin the photo quality. The average nice pictures taken by the N82 is 4 lousy, 6 nice. I hope the Idou will get 10 perfect shots! When will this phone be released? I really want to buy it, disregarding the cost!
Shino03, 27 Feb 2009Arena is better in terms of screen resolution but Idou is better in both music and camera hard... morein other word arena is also good. yes, arena is a smartphone like this phone..the UI is great but i didnt say that arena is better than idou or idou is better than arena but i have facts that this idou music and camera has the highest quality and are the winner.your arguement about this phone is more realible than feeling based without tested. i cant blame your comment.Great! but i must accept that arena screen is better than idou.there are many variables or factors why people like their phone...maybe the UI or music and camera quality ect so choice the factor of phone that can make you buy the phone.dont forget idou has new UI too.
RICH, 27 Feb 2009ur ARENA wont survive IDOU'S orbit when it ìs completed cos,work is stil in progress as we spe... moreyes ARENA wont survive till then u no y? cuz since then a second version of ARENA has already hit the market (perhaps at the same time idou does)
u really think this idou thing comes to life in 2009?
have u forgotten how long it took them to send Xperia out?
AND y dont u ever mention that the only two good SE fones (Xperia n Idou) are not actually SE fones!
xperia is made by htc...no? am i wrong? tell me.
they r doing the same for idou..just wait to see what company is actually going to make it...
what u say "is in progress as we are speaking" is yes the camera and audio hardware NOT the fone.
anyway i dont see anything wrong with that i mean its ok if sony uses the capabilities of other companies to make a better fone...but u should also bear this in mind not to give all the credit to sony and dont u just repeat SE did it SE did that.
What is the price or expected for the phone?
Seems to be a great phone and is breaking the barrier of camera phones beyond 10 megapixel, now with this phone will really put the ordinary cameras out of use
Shino03, 27 Feb 2009Arena is better in terms of screen resolution but Idou is better in both music and camera hard... morewell u guessed wrong..it IS a smart fone and a very good one(uses in-door-developed S class UI)...it somehow outperforms iphone's UI.
