Excerpt: Given the thickness of the phone, it is quite challenging to hold the phone and press the camera button altogether. Another weak spot is the camera megapixel. It only has 3 megapixel which makes the phone more old to use. Pictures taken from this phone are so blurred. The phone may be touch screen and has Android but still it is not a worthy option.
LG GT540: Ideal first smartphone if a little buggy
19 September 2012
Summary: I've had the LG GT540 for nearly two years now, and upgrade time is fast approaching, so I thought this was the perfect time to review it. This was my first smartphone. I had previously only had very basic handsets and found the world of the smartphone to be a bit daunting. The GT540 seemed like the best value for a newbie like me, and an ideal first step on the smartphone ladder. And, to be fair, that's exactly what it was.
Summary: When my fossilised nokia finally died after years of good service, I finally gave in to this growing craze of smart phones and thought that I would start with a cheap, low end one, and to my surprise, it was remarkably good on so many levels. First one, being smart. Being an Android, it is given many possibilities of customization, and allows the user to basically create their own little world right in the palm of your hand.
Pros: Well built, good android operating system. Cheap
Cons: A little underpowered, not a lot of storage space.
Summary: when i first got this phone i was on a very very tight budget, and probably should have just settled for something that sent and received texts and also can make calls. but i wanted something new, i got it out the boxed plugged it in and it didnt turn on, ok well that was a bad start but i over looked it. when i finally did manage to turn it on it was great, it was sleak very stylish, and was a great novelty to play with, i spent all my time on it.
Summary: Fairly recently I was out with some friends and my 'Gadget Man' brother, we were deep in conversation when an irritating, high pitched beeping tune rang from my back pocket. Pulling out my old nokia with it's black and white screen and interchangable cases I recieved a sheer look of pure distain from my brother. How could I possibly be seen dead with that phone? He questioned me.
The Optimus is not a bad phone,but it has had some problem's.

Summary: The problem's i have had are freezing a bit,not often and also notifying me my SD card has been removed and replaced when it has'nt. The Android market is amazing on it,can find more or less any app you can get on an iphone. I use Launcher EX which is a great app for the phone.
Summary: Its a great phone,but it all comes down to user preference,i've read most of the reviews and i disagree with most of the negative views,i wonder if half of you people even read the manual or understood what you read,i have no problems with it,and i have had many phones,from iphone to blackberry,if y'all want to complain,go build a damn phone for yourselves.
Pros: it's a great phone, lots of apps,good browser,i use it more than my laptop now when i use wifi,it connects quickly,no problem with bluetooth either.
Cons: battery drain at times,but then again it's a phone not. a bloody laptop.
Summary: These days, mobile phones aren't simply about making and recieving calls - they function as mini computers allowing the user to utilise a number of web-based apps whilst running a designated operating system. Today i'm looking at the 'Optimus GT 540' - a stylish touch-screen mobile which is made by LG.
Pros: Great screen, Earpiece is nice & clear, option to download many apps
Cons: Reception isn't always that good, feels a little flimsy in the hand
Excerpt: "...I have had an LG KP500 for the last 18 months and have been reasonably happy with the phone and the touchscreen technology, and with the way the menus worked, etc, etc., Asking for another LG touchscreen phone was the natural choice for me, I have become reliant on the LG KP 500 for checking my pop3 email accounts and Orange World, I also play the odd phone game or two with my son and check the internet. Below are some notes where I have found ...
Excerpt: "...an iphone then using the lg gt540 can be a frustrating thing. The phone has many pros including the brilliant android OS with many features and apps to download. Its also slim, sleek and fits in the hand nicely with a user friendly interface. The cons are the battery life is very poor, lasting only a day after a full charge. So charging it every night would be advised. Also the OS seems to freeze from time to time and the response of the touch screen ...
Pros: Android, Plenty of Apps, Sleek and Good Looking
