Hi everyone

I 'm thinking to buy this smartphone but after read one review at gsmArena I got some doubts...

I was shocked at the alleged missing of bass at the 3.5mm output.

Review @ gsmArena

Anyone can tel-me, based on your experience, if this is true??
Or they made this test with some equalization that make this to append.

I was a bit nervous about buying the phone after reading about audio quality at Gsmarena but i did anyway. When i first listened to music in the built in player, i was disappointed because the sound was lacking compared to my mp3 player, but then i tried Poweramp and dialed a little custom EQ and increased the bass a bit, and the sound is awesome. I could say it's even better then my mp3 player. It just needs a good setting to sound great. I listen to metal mostly.

And btw, don't use the headphones that came with the phone, buy something better.

Well, as you know, cameras in phones are mostly crap, so never expect miracles. I am an amateur photographer so i am used to good image quality from DSLR's with cameras and lenses that cost thousands of dollars so of course i have to say the quality is crap because the phone image sensors are so tiny that they will probably never be good at higher sensitivity (ie. in the dark).

However, i can compare it to my old phone, a Nokia N79 which had a 5mp camera with Carl Zeiss "lens" and it's at least not worse. And my co-worker has a Nokia C7 with 8MP and i can't say his is any better. I have gotten usable images of my 6 month old child indoors without flash and it wasn't too bad.

So if i am honest, it's probably about the same quality as most of the stuff out there. It's equally crappy :P

They are like my old HTC Desire. ;)
I'm a little afraid to be disappointed, compared with the HTC.

The pictures are cool.
This is also a temporary situation. When leave a better smartphone by paragraphs (a dual core) I buy another.
My HTC was lost in shipping for warranty service.
They returned me all the money, but rather wait a few months and buy another mobile phone with the points.

I was to buy the Samsung Galaxy S II, but did not want to pay 500€.
So I buy the LG for 165€ and sell it later.

LG is competing with top phone producing companies nowadays . It has started to launch smart phones. It has launched Optimus phone based on an Android OS. It is an amazing phone with best quality of the camera. I have checked link given by you. Its sound system is awesome. I feel like I am setting alone in a music room.
