I am using this phone from 8 months its a good phone.
did not face any problem till now.
Upgraded to GB last week the UI has changed and the performance has increased.
There are some Crap applications like Bollywood DJ which keeps on giving notification in the Notification bar, apart from that the phone is good.

i am using this phone for past two months and really satisfied. one more thing wanna share is recently one of cousin bought galaxy fit. but it is nowhere near optimus in terms of resolution and speed. optimus really is very good.

I got updated my firmware to 2.3.3 from LG service center it's running pretty smooth all minor problems and bug's have ben fixed and I'm loving the update more than 2 weeks no crash or hanging of the phone all apps run very smooth i felt this while playing angry birds
I lost all my previous apps but that's not an issue it can be re installed.
after update i found that mobile was draining battery 50% faster
after a little research on internet someone had mentioned as
after software update the software does not recognize its hardware for some reasons so after OS update we have to factory reset the mobile which option is available in phone settings and after that it is to be and keep for charging in switchoff mode till it indicates that battery is full then you can start using it.
after using this methods now I'm getting far more better results than on 2.2
i just felt like sharing this and someone might find it useful.

The ones I know support tabbed browsing are Dolphin and Opera

thresh, 19 Sep 2011the best phone i ever had. some problems with battery thoug... moreSystem and aplication drains battery but there is 2 whay for your battery to last longer.
1- If not active on the phone and dont need some active widgets turn of 3G
2- If got some wigets you cant live without, than download kind of widget controler ( I use 'automatic task killer') and kill all nonactive so...les active wigets conecting on network = more battery power.

Frnds i m lukng forwrd to buy LG P500 or P350 which one is better or should i go for samsung android phones????

  • dude

@anonymous I recently bought one and I am very contented with it. It can open more windows using the setgings button while using the browser. The music experience is fine and it is really just a great phone. PS it becomes faster if you update it to android 2.3.3
