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 seemingly...

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.

Froyo OS; HSDPA capable; Large capacity battery

Little onboard memory; Battery cover hard to peel off; Transceiver unit; 1 standard battery; Charger set; Headset; Manuals

Fast, responsive Froyo phone at a very reasonable price. Must consider if shopping for a new phone.

LG Optimus One P500 Review

 

Among the low/mid-range Android devices in the market, the LG Optimus One P500 stands out for its up-to-date OS (Froyo), snappy performance, and bundled apps. Full-featured, the only real compromises a buyer has to make for getting Android 2.2 at...

Responsive touchscreen, Value for money (Froyo out of the box), Surprisingly speedy

Low sunlight legibility, No flash, Poor loudspeaker quality (esp. in-call)

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 Optimus One P500 review

 

LG's Optimus One P500 is a great example of an affordable yet highly functional Google Android smartphone.

A responsive touchscreen and the latest version of the Google Android OS make the LG Optimus One smartphone great value for money.

LG Optimus One P500 review

 

LG has got in on the Android 2.2 act early with a budget-busting model looking to tempt smartphone fans

The overall best of the budgets – for the moment at least

LG Optimus One P500

 

The screen is surrounded by a lot of dead space, save for the required Menu, Home and Back buttons, and an extra zoom button for your convenience. The cheap-but-serviceable theme continues around the back with a curving plastic rear culminating in a...

Absolutely fantastic especially for the cost. I bought mine brand new off of ebay for £130. And as for Android.... far better than ios. Even my friends are making the leap to Android 2.2(Froyo) from Apple.
