Pros:
- Dedicated GPU..so you dont have those hangouts. I have posted a youtube link in the G3 vs O1 thread wherein it clearly shows smooth playing of around 4-5 popular games. Tho I know these are smart phones ;)
- Froyo
- Hvga screen.
- Good looking (atleast more better than G3)

Will point out if come across any more!!

I have read in some discussions that this phone is restarting unexpectedly and showing no sd card inserted. Anyone facing this problem?

And i want to know about the 256k color screen...how is it? How much and what difference does it make in comparison to 16M color screen.

^^ yup. XDA forum filled with SD card problem. i'll say if someone having problem, take it to the shop & get it replaced. but after USB debugging the problem usually goes away.

another small problem is O1 + WiFi = B.E (not bachelor of Engg :grin: battery empty)

The thread title should be "LG Optimus ONE User Reviews"

From the posted pics above, especially the one showing O1 held in hands, this phone looks close to ugly. Surprising to read SD card problems too...none of the 'highly rated' reviews from 'highly respected' sites (!) covered this aspect. More the reason, people should wait for user reviews before blindly purchasing this phone...more so, when it competitor, G3, has just received FroYo update! :)
 
Been using this phone since the last couple of days. Not yet faced the SD card problem.

Looks is subjective. Some like it, some don't.

Touch is very good and sensitive. Music sound quality is fantastic. The call quality is as good as it get. Wifi connection is very good (but drains battery very fast). Browsing is ok and pinch and zoom works quite well (please don't compare it with higher spec phones).
Camera is just about ok. Decent daylight pictures.

@ Adi,
G3 hasnt received the froyo update officially yet, it is still awaiting and most prolly it is in last week of December or 1st or 2nd week of January.

@funzuloo
Even i read those problem but after having a scan of the sd card or format usually fixed the problem.

Its actually officially available for i5800 but since both i5800 and i5801 (G3) are virtually same, its as good as official to me. But even then, does it really matter? With FroYo, your main purpose should be able to use SDCard for app storage and thats certainly getting fulfilled. :)

Right off the assembly line
I bought O1 at Rs. 12,819 from themobilestore ; the phone feels awesome.
But I have one complaint for LG and maybe questions to other owners. I use linux(Ubuntu) as Operating System; but at work and home.
I want to install the LG PCSuite (as the notification says update is available ..); but the one they have provided with the phone is only a windows version(.exe) .. not sure how to fix this problem :(
worst case I have to install it on my friends PC .. but want to try out all the others options before that .. any advice ??

^^ AMD is no.1 GPU maker in the world now. & Andro 200 was their creation. sold the mobile line to Qualcomm. so i won't expect anything but the best at good price.

Lg Optimus One P500

Technical Specification : LG Optimus One P500

Box Content :
* Handset P500 (Colour - Black)
* Charger
* Battery
* Inear Plugs
* 2 GB Micro SD Card
* Data Cable
* Leather Cover
* User Manual

After using Optimus One (or O1) for two days (I guess) I am ready to post my opinions. This post will include facts I liked/disliked about the phone, for elaborated review head straight to GSMarena or phonearena :-D

Liked :
1. O1 is quite a looker. The black and silver colour combination is awesome!
2. Build Quality is above good. Smooth rubbery finish adds to better grip.
3. HVGA (320*480 pixels) resolution. Texts and (small) images looks appreciably better than Galaxy 3 with WQVGA resolution (240*400 pixels).
4. Good screen. Colours look natural.
5. Android 2.2 aka FroYo.
6. 512 MB RAM.
7. Nice touch response.
8. Great Performance. Everything operates smoothly (I think) mainly cuz of FroYo.
9. Packet Data Enable/Disable button on notification bar. Really helps when no data plan is activated :)
10. Excellent loadspeakers. Sound output is comparable to Galaxy 3.
11. Provided earplugs are very good.
12. Good Battery Backup.
13. Live Wallpapers. O1 can easily handle these.
14. Leather Cover is pretty much usable. Dosn't feel cheap.
15. HSDPA 7.2Mbps.
16. Gaming is good. I have tried Angry Bird and Raging Thunder 2 Lite. Works without any glitch.
17. Message widget is cool.
18. HQ option in YouTube Player

Disliked :
1. No flash 10.1.
2. 256K colours. Visible colour distortion at shaded regions of images (at 100% zoom).
3. No front Cam.
4. Loads of preloaded apps. Some of them are usefull but most of them just sucks. Moreover they unnecessarily consumes memory.
5. Stock android music player. No mini-music player in locked mode to play next/previous track (like in Galaxy 3).
6. User manual is useless.

Note : Please comment if you find any point useless/biased/subjective :-D. And do add some of yours.

Congrats Android mate. Do post us some pics.
Btw I don't find any point in comparing a lower spec mobile like G3 with O1. Obviously everyone knew a low resolution means compromise on pic quality.
Also share your favourite apps and games that you think as must haves.

12. Good Battery Backup.

how much backup it provides?

4. Loads of preloaded apps. Some of them are usefull but most of them just sucks. Moreover they unnecessarily consumes memory.
5. Stock android music player. No mini-music player in locked mode to play next/previous track (like in Galaxy 3).
6. User manual is useless.

4. did you root the mobile?
5. this is really bad news for me.
6. Universal truth & applies to most mobile :grin:

@comrade
Thnx buddy.
Comparision was necessary as lot of people are still confused between these two phones :). And I think i m one of those people who can compare these two phones easily (cuz i was using galaxy 3 before optimus one).

@Sam.Shab
1. Battery backup is good.
- charged cent percent (8pm) then bluetooth transfer of 23 songs, net surfing for approx 1/2 hr and 20 minutes of music. And battery left (morning) was 70%.
2. No i didnt. Will do it 2-3 months later.
3. Dont worry there r lots of apps available in android market that provides that music functionality.
4. :-D

@pulkitpopli
Thnx for addition. It seems you are first time android user. Use Task Killer regularly to kill unwanted apps. :)
