LG P500 Optimus One - Right for the Price


Android devices are becoming really affordable these days and the choices are getting harder to make all the time. But a low price tag doesn't mean you'll always get the best functionality for your buck. So naturally when the LG P500 aka Optimus One...

With a price tag of Rs. 13,999 (MOP), the Optimus One has enough clout to take on Samsung’s Galaxy 3 Android handset. In a few ways it does have a little more to offer but in some it leaves you wanting more. The Optimus One on an average is a really...

LG Cookie KP500


The Kp500 is one of the cheapest touch screen handsets that tries to do great things and manages to deliver on some fronts, but not all

With a brilliant pricing of Rs. 13,990 it is quite a large touch screen for that price and on the whole even with all it’s oddities and quirks, it's still quite a pretty decent handset. It's loaded with multimedia features for editing videos and images...

LG Optimus One P500 review: One and a half


The LG Optimus One may not be your average killer gadget, but it sports a tempting pricetag, solid build, a nice looking set of features and Android 2.2 Froyo. And with the Optimus One in your hand, you are free to mock and tease those...

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;...

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

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.

LG KP500 Cookie review: Grab a bite


It almost feels unfair of LG to give the KP500 a name that's so hard to say no to. The Cookie scent seems to have inspired a craving already and LG are hoping to have you coming back for more. A genuinely affordable touchscreen, a very decent specs...

3" 256K-color TFT touchscreen (240 x 400 pixels) ; Quad-band GSM support ; 3 megapixel fixed focus camera ; Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP ; 50MB internal memory ; Hot-swappable microSD card slot (supporting card with capacity of up to 16GB) ; Accelerometer...

No 3G support ; No Wi-Fi ; Video recording no good at QVGA@12fps ; Camera has no auto focus and flash ; No DivX/Xvid support ; No standard 3.5mm audio jack

By the way, LG have seen to it that the jar is full of Cookies of various icing. The KP500 comes in black, brown, silver and gold. Just released and exclusive to Orange, LG KP 501 is the very same Cookie (with minor changes to the exterior) in two new...

LG Optimus One Review


LG revealed back in July that it will launch ten smartphones in a newly-coined Optimus line by year-end. For now it looks like an even mix of Android and WP7 devices will be in it. In the initial announcement, the Optimus line naturally started with...

LG Cookie Review


Demand for mobile phones with touch-sensitive screens has increased a lot during the last year and all kinds of models appeared on the market. However, only a small number of them are intended for the common user, who is not looking for a lot of...

LG Optimus One Reviews


Among the low/midrange Android devices in the market, the LG Optimus One P500 stands out for its up-to-date as (Froyo), snappy performance, and bundled apps. Built solidly, the 3.2-inch screen has a wide bezel below which lie the Android buttons, with...

LG Optimus One Review


The first thing one would notice about the phone is the metal bezel around the phone which is mostly made of plastic. On the front you would find the 3.2 inch capacitive display sporting a resolution of 320×480 pixels.The display is not super...

Simple yet attractive design ; Android 2.2 ; Fast Browser ; Above average battery life ; Value for money ; Loudspeaker

Mediocre Camera and no front facing camera ; No Flash support in Browser

The Optimus One is not the fastest Android phone in the market currently but it does offer a lot of features at an affordable price point. It does not feel cheap despite being made of plastic.

LG Optimus One


Clearly there is something going on with the Optimus One.. but what? It's a fairly low end Android device in a smart but fairly unremarkable slabby design, but reviews have been very positive, LG have shown some attention to detail in both hardware and...
