Conclusion: The LG Optimus One is one of the most affordable Android 2.2 phones available right now, but all in all is a fairly average mid-range phone. If you want an inexpensive phone that can effectively double as a sat-nav and a music player then the Optimus One will satisfy. But we found that for browsing the web, checking social networks on the go and taking pictures it’s not so great.

27 May 2011
Excerpt: The latest line of big screen Android smartphones in the high end market has a surprisingly low number of competitors – you can literally count them on your fingers, with the most distinguishing devices being LG’s Optimus 2X (aka T-Mobile G2X), the Android developers’ new love interest, the strict industrial looking Droid X2 from Motorola and of course, the king-sized and -specced Samsung Galaxy S2.

Excerpt: The LG Optimus One P500 is an affordable yet highly functional Android smartphone with a 3.2in capacitive touchscreen and Android ‘Froyo’ 2.2. The plastic chassis may be a little basic, but its soft, rubber-style back makes it comfortable to hold and we liked the curved edges on the top and sides.
Conclusion: So that’s it for the LG Optimus One P500 review – it’s time to sum up. There were very few negative things we found about the phone and in many areas it actually managed to outperform our expectations. The Optimus One is a low-end Android but it performs very well in its price bracket. LG’s main goal with this one is pull people away from feature phones by offering more functionality than even the most high-end feature phone.
Pros: 3.2" 256K-color capacitive TFT touchscreen of HVGA resolution (320 x 480 pixels); Multi-touch input, Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support, Dual-band 3G with HSDPA (7.2 Mbps), 600MHz CPU running Android 2.2 Froyo; 419MB RAM, 3 megapixel autofocus camera; face and smile detection, geotagging, VGA video recording @ 18fps, microSD card slot, up to 32GB, 2GB in the box, Standard 3.5mm audio jack, Standard microUSB port (charging), GPS receiver with A-GPS; Digital compass, Wi-Fi...
Cons: Slow CPU makes editing Office documents a chore, Camera is just 3MP, has no lens protection, no flash and no dedicated shutter key, No Flash support in the browser despite Froyo, No front facing camera
Conclusion: As a budget Android, we found the LG Optimus One P500 to be highly capable of supporting many of the daily tasks that you’d expect to perform with more higher end phones. Its a reliable device for supporting most productivity and basic multimedia needs – baring in mind that its 600 MHz CPU will struggle when pushed to its limit with more demanding tasks.
Pros: Lightweight, Excellent battery life, Comes with Android 2.2 Froyo, Responsive multitouch screen, Runs well with the standard full connectivity package
Cons: Cheap plastic and rubbery feel, Small display, Not suitable for graphically demanding applications, Low megapixel camera without flash or a dedicated camera key

Conclusion: As a calling device, the LG Optimus One functions decently, with clear voices in the earspeaker. Our callers said they were unable to hear us very distinctly, and the volume output was a tad low. The handset has a generous 1500mAh which lasts 7.5 hours in 3G mode, according to the manufacturer. What we saw in the LG Optimus One is a set of features, which match the asking price – nice capacitive touchscreen, smooth interface, various codecs support, and pleasant design.
Pros: Almost stock, fluid Android 2.2 experience, Pleasant design, Rich video codecs support
Cons: Stuttering browser, Pictures appear slightly out of focus
