  • LG GT540 Optimus review: Get smart, get started
    GSMArena team
    28 Apr 2010 | gsmarena

    We can’t be sure but it does look like LG are still feeling the Android water before taking the plunge. Or they might just be too careful not to cast doubt on long standing commitments. You know, the soon-to-be Windows Phone 7. In any case though, their first Android attempts have enough in them to get us excited. The LG GT540 is not the kind of phone to make big headlines but fresh smartphone converts wouldn’t want a big-fuss, high-maintenan...

  • Does this low cost Android handset deliver good value for money?

    The LG Optimus GT540 is LG`s latest shot at an Android smartphone, and the company`s second to hit the UK. The last Android offering – the inTouch Max GW620 – came with a slide-out keyboard, but this time the keyboard has gone. Aimed at the middle range market, the Optimus GT540 comes in at about £150 on PAYG and we found it free on contract for as low as £15 a month. Can it do enough to show Android off to the best of its...

    Pros: Camera belies the price tag, Nice LG Android skin, Good battery life, Stylish chassis, Easy to use 3.5mm headphone jack,

    Cons: Touchscreen not responsive, Screen is small, Web browsing is tricky, Android 1.6 is behind the times, UI lags at times,

    Verdict: A budget-ish offering that is neither super-friendly on the pocket or mixing it with the big boys. Sadly, the Optimus GT540 seems to get caught int two minds...

    The LG Optimus GT540 is the second smartphone with the Android OS by the manufacturer, and it comes in a quite futuristic form, kind of reminding us of the Batmobile. Get ready to see if the Optimus GT540 will ultimately rise victorious like a true......

  • LG Optimus (GT540)

    Against the background of Android popularity LG was the first to choose the right segment of affordable "robots". It is clear when you look at LG Optimus, compare its features and price with rival products and take into account the excitement created by the model in the niche of affordable Android devices. It is positioned as the most affordable "robot" from a major manufacturer. It is more down market than HTC Wildfire, but the initial price is ...

    Verdict: Sensor buttons under the screen respond equally well to pressure by finger, pen, pencil, etc. Some users would prefer to use the stylus, which must be purchased additionally...

    A few days ago we had the LG Optimus arrive at our office for review and we even had an unboxing of the LG Optimus....

    Verdict: Call quality, an important factor considering this is a phone at the end of the day, well, itu2019s pretty good, I was able to hear the person on the other end and caller at the other end also reported clarity in voice even when I was in a rather bus...
