>LG P500 (Optimus One) Review

>hey guys, i just got the LG Optimus one and i decided to make a review. lets start with the basics, it has a 600MHz processor, comes with android 2.2, it has a built in wi-fi hotspot and voice input is one of the main features of 2.2. the 3.2 inch diagonal display is alright for watching movies, it feels nice to hold in the hand. the 3.0 megapixel camera is great for pictures but the VGA video recording could be better, the lack of an LED flash can get frustrating in low light positions. The design of the phone is very sleek and elegant, the volume rocker and lock/power button is sort of blended in with the chrome rim which can get pissing off at times. the battery life isnt so great for constant users such as myself, it lasted me around 9 hours with constant browsing, game playing, downloading and the usual 3G features although i have realised the application google goggles takes up 22% of power usage on the phone. now coming to the software. the 600MHz processor seems flawless, no lagging what so ever, the video playback is exquisite with no lagging(720p blu ray) but requires registration to support DivX. the applications load extremely quickly and have no problems running. installing applications is very quick and flawless. i have had a chance to install metro ui (wp7 user interface) and have been running both UI’s without any lag. the widgets have proved extremely usefull and so has the notification bar qith quick access to GPS, WiFi, 3.5G network switch, bluetooth, silent/general profile switcher but the lack of the LED indicatoris one way in which the BlackBerry gains an upper hand. more updates in time.
hope this has helped.
