Absolute Gem of an Android Phone.

Just Received this Phone from
first of all Thanks Flipkart for the amazing Service even in this Diwali Time ,received my cell just in two days of ordering.
Researched for almost two months for the android phone and found this gem of a phone.

Review for this Phone.
This is an Successor of LG Optimus One with Enhancements which are Best in its Class.
1) Display is like Charm..truly amazing dont have words for it. with 180 PPI Display is Superiorly Crisp and Razor Sharp. with an 3.2 Inch Screen.
2)UI is also neat without any flaw. Customized LG UI.
3) Processing with an 800 Mhz is above mark without any lags.
4)for those who doubt that it does not have DLNA. i have to say that it does have DLNA Smartshare. which works with DLNA Devices. so please dont cast your opinion if you havent used it.
5) it does have Adreno 200. you check this on You Tube Review.

Really Guys its an AMazing Phone you will definately love it.
probably the best Phone in 10K Class.not doubt about it thats for sure.

Exceptional VFM; Great Performance at A low price point.

I used this phone for a while. Here’s a review.

You can probably gather how this product looks from the pictures supplied on the site, but let me go into a little more detail. The design is really not very impressive. Sure, it’s functional, but it won’t be winning any beauty paegents. The front bezel is rather thick, but the monotony is broken by a chromish LG logo below the earpiece at the top, and chrome accents above the search and menu buttons. The edges are nicely rounded, so the device is a joy to hold.

Build Quality
This phone has all plastic construction, but feels pretty solid nevertheless. An extra white back cover has been provided but I can’t imagine anyone using it because it would indeed look hideous on the device. The phone does not squeak or rattle, a sign that LG has done its homework.

This phone has a nippy 800mhz processor, and a adreno 200 GPU. It returns a Quadrant score of about 950.
On the memory front, the device has 512 MB of RAM that is staggering for this pricepoint. Not commensurate with this offering is the miserly 150 MB of internal storage.
The camera has a 3MP sensor, and has autofocus aside from a number of other features in the camera app. It does lack a flash, and some pictures suffer because of this omission.
The WiFi is an 802.11a/b/g/n chip, so that front is suitably covered. The GPS too, works admirably.

This product has a HVGA screen that may only be second to the Dell XCD35. The colors come out vivid and the touch response is phenomenal. The screen may not be gorilla glass, but it hasn’t attracted scratches yet after 10 days of very heavy use. One benefit of this high screen resolution is that more apps are supported on the Android Market.

OS and Software
The Optimus Net runs an LG customised version of Android OS. My device came with 2.3.4 and I haven’t updated yet, but the site says that there is an update available. A major negative point is that LG has seen fit to load the phone with legions of useless apps, which cannot be uninstalled. This coupled with the partly internal storage makes for a frustrating experience.
LG’s UI customisations cannot match its contemporaries like HTC’s Sense and Samsung’s TouchWiz. This gives the phone a dated feel.

The phone is reasonably nippy. It sometimes stutters, but that’s a given. I can play most games on it, aside from the most demanding ones like NOVA and other HD games, so it’s certainly not a phone for an avid gamer. Casual games perform well, although Angry Birds does have some minimal lag. But overall, an acceptable experience.
Web browsing is pretty slick, the pinch to zoom and the kinetic scrolling work like a dream. You can surf in both portrait and landscape modes.

Calling and Phone Features.
It does well in the core features that a phone is to provide. Signal reception is on par with Nokia phones. There are no call drop or deathgrip issues. However the volume of the earpiece could have been made louder during calls.
The messaging is standard as comes on all Android phones. A word of advice, though - change the keyboard to the (included) Android keyboard from the LG keyboard for extra features. The keyboard is easy to use and mistypes are minimal. I suppose I’ll get better with practice.

The included headset is surprisingly good, it is the in-ear kind. The charger is a standard plug in USB charger, and the supplied microUSB data cable plugs into that. I would have preferred a dedicated charger and a data cable instead. The extra back cover is a nice touch, but its use is questionable. LG could have included a pouch, though.

The MRP is more, but this device is retailing even at shops for about 10K.

VFM factor
Just as the Optimus One presented to us a unique value proposition, its successor makes the same valid points. This really has the best performance/features to price ratio.

Buy. It blows away all the other competition in this price range. It's much better than the Galaxy Y/POP/Fit. The Moto Fire is a great device, but is sluggish. The HTC Wildfire is locked onto 2.2 (officially, anyway). You get a great phone from a trusted brand.

Optimus the Best

After a huge R&D on HTC Explorer Vs Optimus net I bought this smartphone last week from a store @10k. This is my first Android.

* In store I handled both Explorer and NET but Net was the BEST in some aspects.

* While giving demo of both the sets HTC Explorer and Optimus Net, storekeeper inserted battries and started both sets at the same time, the result was in front of me. Optimus net was ready within 30 seconds and HTC Explorer taken 3 times more time to ready for call. It's amazing!! This is due to processer strength as Net hv 800 Mhz processer and Explorer hv 600 Mhz processer.

* Though HTC explorer claiming 3.2 touchscreen, its working screen (view screen) is only 2.8 bcoz touchbuttons are given lower side while Optimus Net hv not touchbuttons (manual hardkeys provided)at lower side of the screen, quiet boaring while i use it but it gives you more screen size than Explorer.

* The back panels of Optimus net are of good quality plastic (come with an extra back panel)while HTC Explorer back panel seems to lower grade.

* Handling of Optimus Net is quite comfortable than HTC explorer.

* About overall configuration LG Optimus Net was right than HTC Explorer. The pluspoints of Optimus Net are

1. Battery back up (1500 Mah)/Explorer hv 1230Mah
2. Processer800 Mhz/Explorer hv 600 Mhz processer
3. Nearby service centre/Only Customer care centre(for servicing
they send handsets to metro cities).
4. Internal Memory (150MB)/Explorer hv 90 MB.
5. Actual screen 3.2/Explorer working screen except touchkey
buttons is 2.8 inch.
6. Video recording 30 frames per seconds/Explorer 15 fps.
7. Optimus net with headset/Explorer is without headset.
8. DLNA with Optimus net/Explorer Lacks.

Pluspoints of HTC Explorer over Optimus Net are

1. HTC Explorer with HSDPA upto 14 mbps/Optimus net hv 3.6 mbps.
2. Latest 3.5 Version HTC Sense for better exprience/Optimus Net
with UI (It's OK for me not too bad)
3. HTC Explorer with Surround sound for music lovers/Opimus net
not provided stereo effects to music player but not to FM
radio.(It really hurted me)
4. HTC Explorer with Adreno 200 GPU/Optimus Net provide good
graphics but lacks GPU.

With all respects,I choose LG Optimus Net and I am happy with this great phone. Processer is strong to play all the games without lagging. I play mu favourate motion sensor car game comfortabaly. Screen resolution is the best in the class. You can easily read text without pinch zoom.

HTC Explorer claim that they came with browser which open Indian language pages.Don't worry Optimus net also opens Indian language pages. Great battery back up and battery charge fast also.Camera of Net is not bad. It works better even no flash with it.
Great quality feature of Optimus Net is its navigation. It gives correct GPS navigation.

Really Great Smart Phone at Great Price.

Bang for the buck

Flipkart service: Product delivered within 2 working days and in perfect packaged condition. I have bought books through flipkart but this was my first higher value purchase. The experience has been satisfying and hassle free. The warranty card didn't come stamped. After writing to flipkart support, I got quick response that the invoice will serve as a proof for any warranty claim. Hoping that I wouldn't need that anyways.

LG Optimus Net P690: This is my first smartphone ever. Hence, can't rightfully benchmark it against any other. However, based on internet research, this is the best phone spec wise (battery processor RAM display size decent camera) at this price range. The only other phone which is currently competing is Motorola Fire XT (in which you get extra 2MP camera and 0.3" screen by paying ~2,400/- more) and Sony Xperia Mini ST15i (extra 200Mhz, 170MB in internal memory, 2MP in camera, 16m colors). I was keen on buying Xperia but was put off by reading about over-heating issues / buttons malfunctioning issues which have been coming up. Hence, I let go of Xperia. I figured I could do with a 3MP camera and hence did away with Fire XT as well.

I feel that colors are rich and look of phone is also good (I want to use it in formal settings and hence it is good to see that its not too flashy or radical in design). Phone feels a bit heavy compared to my previous feature phone (but that is obvious). UI response of touch felt good. The phone has 4 physical / mechanical buttons at bottom of screen. I felt that these buttons had a somewhat old school feel and they didn't feel crisp in their tactile response. Can't really comment on battery life etc as these can be known only after a fair amount of usage and when you have had experience with other similar models. I will suggest that such parameters should be examined from reviews on professional sites like gsmarena etc.

Phone comes with a 2GB card pre-installed (I don't think that this is mentioned in flipkart specs; they should include this). Also, it has a charger, headset, USB data cable and an alternate white colored back panel (i.e. you can switch between black and white panel; this is again not mentioned in specs).

For those who have read that this is being offered as a Dual Sim phone in Asia, I can say that its not the case for India at least. P690 is a single sim phone. I found that LG also have some software updates for this model on their product support site (though no details are given about what is the update about). The user manual says that you can use this phone for Wi-Fi tethering.

Again, since this is my first experience with a smartphone, I will recommend this phone based on my own detailed, painstakingly done spec comparison for all phones available between 8-12k range (I made a detailed Excel no less :D) and the experience so far from usage. You can also read up other reviews from users detailing differences on advance features like DLNA, Wi-Fi hotspot etc.
