Anonymous, 06 Jan 2011I am stuck between samsung galaxy 3 and lg optimus one P500 ... ... moreLg optimus one is my choice in between the two. Specs are same on both the phone. Samsung is a bit cheaper. Optimus one is with froyo athough samsung galaxy star is also upgradable. Both phone are just the same in all respect. The diff is on the looks which is beter in lg optimus in my view..

Anonymous, 06 Jan 2011I am stuck between samsung galaxy 3 and lg optimus one P500 ... ... moreI have a friend using Galaxy 3.. and I bought an Optimus One 20 days back. itís really better than galaxy 3 by means of battery backup (really good for a Smartphone) and look wise its really nice. RAM is higher than Galaxy 3, LG has informed there may be an update to Gingerbread. Galaxy 3 is a finger print magnet. You canít keep the panel of a galaxy 3 clean. But the LG P500 has super build quality and finish. Itís not very sleek, but not too huge too. It fits well in your hand. I had no problems using it as a Smartphone (I mean wifi browsing everything is coolÖ) Now after having installed around 20 apps on the phone in addition to the existing 20 apps. I feel no difference in its performance. When it comes to Galaxy 3 or P500. I vote for Optimus.

I want to ask one thing

All the apps cannot be moved to sd com card but someday here wrote that all the apps which can't be moved to sd card also have alternate apps doing the same function with a different name in the market, so pls tell me if there is any site to check this?

Second question is if we uninstall an app from phone memory and clear the data, so is there any kb or mb still left on the phone memory??

neo, 07 Jan 2011how is the battery life when using inernet???I have done tethering a number of times on my lg optimus...............those of you who intend to use it as an lone source to connect to the internet...then I don't advice up this cause its not god for the phones battery in the longer run.....


When you tether the phone connected to the USB a and out keeps on charging but the charging rate isn't as effective as a wall charger.......
Tethering isgood in its experience for browsing web etc....but not for downloading large files like movies from torrent...

Gingerbread update for the optimus one hasn't arrived yet. As far as my knowledge goes, it will probably arrive in February. But you can update your current firmware to 2.2.1(to version v10c) by connecting to PC suite.
