Am using the Optimus with the 8 Gb Transcend sd, no problem. the phone has a better build and better screen than galaxy 3 else nothing much different. The 60MHz in processor speed is not noticeable at all with altogether different cores. Battery performance on optimus one is similar to galaxy 3 as well. What I luv in optimus though is the music output in the headphones is awesome. DNSE is not as good with the same headphones (And i am using 1K bucks headphones :))

Hi every one I am on a tight budget but no regrets as Optimus one on fire ;)
Still I am confused in between the 2 phones.
Optimus one is prommising performence but Galaxy3 has a better brand name.Music is key for me as I am a music geek.
1)which one has a better sound quality.
2)Are android Apps are powerfull enough to improve music quality significantly.
3)I use EP-630 so doesent care about the inbox headphones.
4)I have 8 gb card in advance.(Is Optimus one has realy a hanging probleme with 8 GB or bigger.)
5)write youur final verdict and why.
{Please consided the case that I am a music geek}

The wallpapers/live wallpapers that come preloaded in the optimus one are stored in the root directory. You can access them by pressing the menu button on the home screen.
Use the application 'group SMS' for sending group messages. You can find it at the market.
You can visit the android market or the site 'appbrain' where all the games and apps are listed by popularity/rating/relevance.

Anonymous, 08 Jan 2011@neo/Pratik i have some small problems with the built in email ... moreHi,
The GMail, Google Calendar and Contacts are truly 'push' on the Android. Setting the "Sync" is basically enabling the two-way push; otherwise you have to manually refresh your GMail or contacts or whatever. POP accounts setup in Mail are "pull." Those work off of a set interval to login and check for new messages. Maybe you have setup a 'pop' configuration for gmail by going to the manual setup under the 'email' application.

Go to Accounts and sync->create a new mail account-> Enter the e-mail address and password for the Gmail account you're setting up->Press Next->Wait for "Retrieving account information" to complete. From there on, it's just a matter of following the simple prompts.
Go to settings->accounts & sync->check 'background data' and 'auto sync' options. Clear the cache of the 'gmail' application if you are facing trouble in receiving the notifications. Make sure that the 'receive notification' is checked in the settings when you open the gmail application.

The push mail works like this:

1. Turn on Datasync on Phone.
2. Data sync alerts Gmail server that it is on, and then does no more until/unless it is turned off.
3. Gmail server records that that particular phone account is set to receive.
4. An email arrives in the Gmail account.
5. Gmail server checks the record to see if the value for Data Sync is True or False. If true it sends the email, if False, it does not.

The phone is not checking on a regular basis(unlike POP) to see if mail exists, it acts only once (when the setting is changed) to indicate to the Gmail server a value of true or false for future checks by the server for the phone's availability. With push notification, the device doesn't do anything until the server notifies it. That's better for resource utilization and battery life.

mobilefreak, 08 Jan 2011@all the helpful guys out there i am unable to update the firmw... moreHi,
I don't remember the exact steps but this is what i can recollect:Connect the phone to your computer via USB (Before that make sure that the 'mass storage only' mode is unchecked in the phone's settings). Open PC suite->check phone update. Follow the steps as displayed on the screen. First the LG mobile updater will be downloaded. Subsequently, the updates will be downloaded. Just make sure that you don't shut down your phone or escape the update program when the actual update is running otherwise you may lose even the current operating system software. Don't get worried when the phone goes to emergency mode or reboots while updation because it is part of the updating procedure. It will take some time to download the updates. Just have a little patience.

The optimus one outsmarts galaxy 3 and wildfire. I have come to this conclusion by contemplating upon the specs, performance(my own experience), design and last but not the least - the positive reviews.

You can view online videos using the browser application 'skyfire'. You can find it at the market. For viewing youtube videos there is a 'youtube' application which comes preloaded in the optimus one.

Use the application NDrive. It works purely on GPS. You just need to download the maps for your city when you first open the application and after that you can use that application without getting charged for that.

Xrub, 08 Jan 2011hey guyz, well i understand that the smartphone works like the c... moreHi,
A smartphone is a mobile phone that offers more advanced computing ability and connectivity than a contemporary basic feature phone. Most feature phones are able to run applications based on platforms such as Java ME whereas a smartphone usually allows the user to install and run more advanced applications. Smartphones run complete operating system software providing a platform for application developers.The feature phone has less advanced programming APIs(Application Prgramming Interfaces) and is unable to run native software specific to a smartphone platform. Smartphones are also defined by the ability to run third-party software, typically known as applications or 'apps'.

RAM is like virtual workspace that is used while an application is running. Think of it this way: A person sitting and working at a desk. The person is the processor, the physical desktop is the RAM. Processor and RAM are both important. They will both affect how fast/slow applications run. The processor is controlling the speed at which data is processed and the RAM is the 'workspace' the processor is using to process that data. So they both have an impact. RAM is used by both OS and application software. Devices with more RAM can run more complex software and multiple applications at the same time.

In feature phones, e-mail is usually an included feature, but you often have to pay extra for it(no wi-fi capabilities), or you have to access your e-mail via the mobile browser. Push email is often nonexistent. You can get corporate e-mail on some feature phones, but the experience is usually far slower and not as smooth. Calendar syncing is often a problem, as is document editing. However, feature phones make up for that with a big focus on multimedia and texting, and almost all feature phones have GPS, full HTML browsers, and 3G speeds. A lot of feature phones also have popular social networking abilities now; Twitter and Facebook integration is especially popular. So if you want to run applications such as e-book readers, cardio trainers, high def games, run videos of different formats, live wallpapers, antivirus,etc., you need a smartphone.
