Excerpt: I was reluctant to switch from QWERTY-comfy Blackberry to a touch screen. I chose this phone because it was cheaper so if I hated the touch screen, I could switch back without wasting tons of money. I love this phone!! It's fun, convenient, and the touch screen isn't so bad! I'm sorry blackberry.... The only problem I've had is my camera settings...either it's not the best camera, or I don't know what settings to change to make the quality a bit better.
Excerpt: Last time many people talk about iPhone... Many people like this brand and they are ready to pay for it. Many other people like phones on Android operational system and they also ready to spend money using fashion brands like HTC and Samsung. I am one of those who likes free software. But I also one of those who willing to pay for the quality. I bought LG GT540 2 month ago and I spent about 199 dollars (even shipping was included in this price).
Summary: Amazing Mid range Smart phone for its price...Wi-fi, Bluetooth, Ton's of free Android Application to download & freedom to customized your phone the way you like it Smart.! My only concern with the gt540 is being a resistive screen it takes a while getting used to it, especialy if your more familliar in using a capacitive touch screen but its not a big hurdle for first time users if used with a stylus pen, since its screen is quite responsive.
Pros: Android, Great Features, LG OS Support, Lightweight, Responsive Touch Screen, Strong Signal
Excerpt: Since I really did not need a high-end phone but I do not want to be getting a compromised kind, I decided to buy a touch screen phone which is not much of a financial burden. LG is not so familiar with me except in home appliances. But I decided to try because I knew that it has Android for its operating system. The main consideration why I opted for an Android phone is the impressive take on me on Google.
Excerpt: I am one of the first buyers of LG Optimus GT 540. Being a smart phone freak, I was planning to get this phone after reading some of its reviews on internet. And, as expected I got it at the earliest. The phone has not disappointed me. It has some very nice features which make me love it. It costs me only 220 dollars which is low if I am asked to do a cost-benefit analysis. The phone runs of Android OS v1.6. However, it can be upgraded to Android OS v2.1.
Summary: I was not sure about this phone when I browsed the Internet. It looked so bad on the photos. But in real it is amazingly cool! Slim, light, I cannot imagine how people can have other big screen huge smart phones - it is not much bigger then just a regular phone, really slim. Hard to find cons. No problem with Android upgrade to 2.1.
Pros: Easy To Use, Great Features, Lightweight, Simple Controls, Strong Signal
Summary: I have this phone as a backup, but its performance isn't the best. The android software is really old, the screen isn't touch sensitive, and the battery life lasts for probably half an hour if I didn't lock it once. The camera is actually doable. Some of the pre installed apps don't even work, like YouTube. I also download apps and they keep crashing. The audio when phoning people isn't very clear and sometimes my phone crashes and declines calls automatically.
Summary: I've had the phone for about 3 years now. It has been fantastic, Full of useful features, I am still amazed at its looks and performance. Just lost the charging plug socket cover, but after that length of time its entitled too. I have looked after it, always had a case and a screen cover as well.
Summary: First time user with an Android Phone and was quite amazed with all the features that came with this compact phone. With so many wifi Hotspots available the on-board wifi comes in very useful and can save you pounds when using a pay as you go sim. The on board GPS is also a good feature and with plenty of free Apps that make good use with the GPS. The phone is easy to use and easy to customise to your needs.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, Easy To Use, Features/Settings, Quality
Summary: Everything was great about this phone; the music area was perfect, loved downloading apps from the store, could organise things in the calender and memos easily. This phone is great for anyone new to android or touchscreen. However there were a few problems. Firstly the Internet was really slow, the camera lacked quality and before my two year contract ended the touchscreen and buttons stopped working even though I've never actually dropped the phone.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, Easy To Use, Features/Settings, android, music, organiser
