|A decent budget phone from LG, though lacks a few features. It’s a good first Smart phone with Android 2.2 with auto focus camera.|
LG Optimus One is a good shot at it, here’s some pros and cons on why it’s a decent budget phone.
The phone comes with these accessories
Here is a list of pros and cons.
How to root your LG Optimus One?
We at woikr believe that it’s the user’s call to root/utilitize the phone to it’s full extent. Along with the other rooting guides, here’s one more. You can use Z4Root App from the Android Market to do a temporary/permanent root. Head over to this rooting guide for further details. This is the another one click root methods available to root a large number of devices.
How to order one?
After searching for all the major local outlets to get the phone – Croma & Hyper City at Hyderabad. I’ve decided to purchase the phone online. I’ve ordered the phone from FlipKart on a late Sunday evening and me and my wife were excited. It’s her first Smart phone and I didn’t want to disappoint her. I’ve got the phone in my hands in less than 2 days of ordering it. The ordering process and shipping was really smooth and perfect. Kudos to the FlipKart team.
LG Optimus One cases?
I’ve faced a lot of problem getting protective cases for LG Optimus One and my dad’s Wildfire. Then comes Fommy.co.in for rescue. It’s got a great list of phone accessories for shipping in India. I’m yet to receive the Amzer Silicon case that I ordered (black and purple). But my experience with them before has been good.
LG did well to come into India’s budget smart phone market. The phone definitely gives a strong competition with it’s likes in HTC and Samsung and I’d say has been great to use till now. We rate it 3.5/5 and a phone that you can buy. Sure if you’ve got a little more patience, you can wait for super fast LG Optimus 2X which will be out in a couple of weeks.
[Update - 14th June 2011] This phone might get Gingerbread after all (by July 2011). Here’s a teaser video posted by LG Italy of the phone running the Android 2.3. No information till date on when the India editions will receive this update yet. Watch this space for more info.
[Update - 11th September 2011] The Gingerbread Android 2.3 upgrade is now available for the LG Optimus One in India. To upgrade to the new Android version, follow these steps.
