LG P500 Optimus One – Right for the Price

4.0
Verdict: 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.

LG Optimus One P500 review

4.0
Verdict: A budget smartphone that offers some great features, the LG Optimus One P500 is well worth a second look. Unlike some other cheap handsets, it runs Android 2.2 Froyo rather than 2.1 Eclair.

LG Optimus One in-depth review -

4.0
Verdict: Smartphones no longer require a fat wad of cash in exchange for snazzy email, web and app features. LG has always been one of the most prolific purveyors of budget to mid-range smartphones, and the Android-powered Optimus One is one of its most capable – and it clocks in at free from £20 per month,...
Pros: Great lineup of sat-nav features including voice control and directions, excellent email and especially Gmail, good value for money
Cons: Low-res screen makes webpages look worse than other Android devices, some clunky software, design is pretty average veering on low-rent

LG Optimus One P500

LG Optimus One review

3.5
Verdict: LG's been putting out touchscreen phones for a long time, but has yet to pull off a proper success in the amazingly competitive Android scene. Its Optimus GT540 was a poor attempt at making a stylish and original phone, and ultimately ruined by a terrible resistive touchscreen.

LG Optimus One P500

No reviews
Verdict: Presenting the FoneArena LG Optimus One Review. The P500 is LG's attempt to conquer the affordable smartphone segment. At one point of time , the Korean handset maker was pumping out too many handsets into the market that we could barely keep track of.
Pros: Simple yet attractive design, Android 2.2, Fast Browser, Above average battery life, Value for money, Loudspeaker
Cons: Mediocre Camera and no front facing camera, No Flash support in Browser

LG Optimus One Review

4.0
Verdict: The good news for anyone on a budget is that you no longer need deep pockets to benefit from a decent range of web, app and email features on a smartphone. LG is famed for its smartphones in the low to mid-price range and in the Optimus One it has produced one of its most capable Android phones -...
Pros: Very decent set of features including sat-nav with voice control and directions; good-value handset; wonderful email facilities, in particular Gmail
Cons: Web pages are disappointing on the low-res display; cheap-looking design; disappointing software

LG Optimus One

Verdict: The LG Optimus One is described by LG as a great choice for first-time smartphone users. In this writer's opinion, the Optimus One deserves a better lead than that. Let's break it down.

LG Optimus One Review

No reviews
Verdict: The LG Optimus One is a well-priced Android handset. It's certainly not top of the range (thus far, LG hasn't really got a flagship Android device), but it does cover all the bases. The camera is a little iffy and it's annoying there is no camera hardware key on the side of the device.

LG Optimus One review

Verdict: The LG Optimus One is another example of the new breed of low-cost Android smartphones, and at just over £200 SIM-free, is more likely to find favour with first-time buyers rather than those looking to upgrade.

LG Optimus One

4.0
Verdict: The LG Optimus One feels like a better device than LG's GT-540 Optimus. We prefer the design and we like that the buttons are to the point, unlike the Huawei Ideos, which goes a little overboard on controls.
Pros: LG's tinkering isn't too aggressive, Android 2.2, smartphone features at an affordable price
Cons: Low resolution display, camera performance isn't anything to get excited about, flex in the display centre means the capacitive display behaves more like a resistive one

Review: LG Optimus One P500 Android smartphone

No reviews
Verdict: Let's face the truth, frankly, the LG Optimus One P500 isn't as glamourous as many Android counterparts. As a result it is much more affordable, and this is where we think the LG Optimus One P500 may excel – the Android newbie's market.
Pros: Lightweight, Excellent battery life, Comes with Android 2.2 Froyo, Responsive multitouch screen, Runs well with the standard full connectivity package
Cons: Cheap plastic and rubbery feel, Small display, Not suitable for graphically demanding applications, Low megapixel camera without flash or a dedicated camera key

"Review: Can LG's Budget Android Offering Beat Off Killer Competition?"

3.0
Verdict: With Android phones now flooding the market, a budget option is not too difficult to find. LG's Optimus One P500 is a sturdy offering that now comes with Android's Froyo update pre-installed, but does it make it a good enough deal to compete with the likes of HTC's Wildfire?
Pros: Easy to use; Full range of Android features; Tidy design; Large battery
Cons: Soft plastic screen; Can be a bit slow at times; Lowish resolution screen

LG Optimus One P500 budget Android smartphone

4.0
Verdict: Time was when smartphones were always high-end handsets. But as economies of scale help bring prices down, Android's open option has made it appealing to a wide variety of manufacturers and it's adding smartphone goodies to some very modestly priced handsets.

LG Optimus One P500

3.0
Verdict: The LG Optimus One is an inexpensive mid-range phone that runs on Android 2.2 and is being sold as an all-in-one sat-nav/phone device. We took it for a spin to see how it fared as a navigator and see what else it has to offer. Finding your way around the LG Optimus One is a piece of cake.

LG Optimus One P500

4.1
Verdict: We enjoyed our experience with the LG Optimus One. It may not offer the beefiest spec sheet or even the highest-resolution screen, but for the price it provides a weighty build and a decent user experience.
Pros: Decent touchscreen, Responsive, Android 2.2 on-board, Bundled turn-by-turn GPS, Mechanical menu buttons, Cheap

LG Optimus One P500 review

5.0
Verdict: Your first glimpse of the Optimus One will tell you that this is no sleek and glossy fashion phone – but just like your mother is always telling you, looks aren't everything. The screen is surrounded by a lot of dead space, save for the required Menu, Home and Back buttons, and an extra zoom button...

LG Optimus One P500

2.0
Verdict: LG is hoping that its new Optimus One smartphone will be a credible alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Apollo and the HTC WildFire.  The Korean firm means business, too: it's planning to shift 10 million Optimus Ones.
Pros: Android 2.2 Froyo, 'Acceptable' battery life, Value for money, Plays DivX video natively
Cons: Optimus software unnecessary, Screen isn't responsive enough, Very average camera with no flash, Touchscreen keyboard could be more accurate

LG Optimus One P500 review Review

Verdict: 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.

Is the LG Optimus One P500 a Worthy Budget Phone?

4.2
Verdict: LG is known for many things, but making really awesome mobile phones definitely isn't one of them. At least, it wasn't until recently, as almost all of its cellphones were unremarkable. With Android, LG is trying to become a smartphone maker again, but it hasn't seen much success even in that.

A good Android phone at an affordable price

"LG P500 or Optimus One Review - After 1yr+ usage."

4.0
Verdict: After a whole lot of research on android phones, I finally decided to go for the Optimus One last May (May 2011). Back then, there was not much to choose from in the $200 budget. So this phone seemed to me as the best bet back then, and I'm very satisfied with it even now!
Pros: 3G, good battery, vibrant screen, good camera, compatibility
Cons: Lack of a front facing camera, lack of flash
