LG Arena (KM900) mobile phone


LG's flagship touch-screen mobile phone for 2009 is the Arena (KM900). It boasts HSDPA capabilities, extensive multimedia functions, Wi-Fi and built-in GPS, but it's the new 3D "S-Class" user interface that is the real talking point. According to LG,...

Build quality, compact design, excellent display, graphical user interface, responsive touch screen, 3.5mm headphone jack, great list of features ;

Slightly sluggish in some areas, keystroke lag when messaging, 3D cube isn't as intuitive or smooth as it could be, no App Store, TV-out cable not included ;

The LG Arena will be initially available from Vodafone for $0 upfront on a $69 or $79 plan over 24 months, with offers from Telstra and Optus to follow

LG Arena


LG's touchscreen features class-leading multimedia support, but we're not convinced it makes an excellent phone. Its flashy new interface looks great but tends to make things slower and more difficult.

Gorgeous 3-inch display ; First-rate media file recognition ; 8GB internal memory ; HSDPA, Wi-Fi and GPS

Interface is confusing and can be laggy ; On-screen keyboard takes practice ; Buggy software and a few crashes

LG obviously knows that its touchscreen line of products needs a dedicated finger-friendly interface, but we don't think S-Class is as good as it could be. The interface can be sluggish, especially when the phone is full of data like media and...

LG - Arena


LG is establishing itself as a maker of touchscreen handsets, and the Arena brings yet another tweak to that format. The tweak, to be honest, isn't on its own enough to sell this phone. Hailed as ...

The Arena is a very nice handset and it is really crammed with features. We wish LG hadn't bothered with the 3D cube interface, though.

LG Arena review


The Arena is the start of a new era for LG. This mobile phone is extremely innovative, not only when it comes to its design, but also its features and user's ease. The LG KM900, or LG Arena, features a 5.0 Megapixel digital camera, GPS antenna, WiFi,...

LG Arena touchphone


With its new S-Class UI, the Arena boasts a slicker, more user-friendly touch performance than past LG touchphones. But not quite Apple cool.

Slim and eye-catching, the LG Arena has many attractive features. Its S-Class UI certainly raises LG's game - it's intuitive, easy on the eye and more user-friendly than LG's previous efforts - even if it's still not quite up to the iPhone's easy...
