    both SIMs are not active

    For those who wants to buy just because of dual SIM, note dual standby. When you are on a call, other SIM is dead (not reachable to anyone). Even if you GPRS on one SIM, other SIM is dead. So both SIMs are not active.

    Solution for this is

    when using GPRS - use first SIM in 3G mode with 2G GPRS pack so you can use GPRS in one SIM and you can receive calls in other SIM. If you use GPRS in 2G mode on one SIM, other SIM is dead.


    receiving call waiting when on another call - activate call f...

    It's the best dual SIM on android.

    The phone has very nice look with the sleek design.
    Screen clarity is excellent.
    We can also upgrade the Android latest version.
    internet and other applications works very fast, but performance would be a bit slow while dialing and receiving calls.
    For video games, it's awesome.
    Battery backup is not that much good,comes 3-4 hrs if we use continuously, and comes 35-40hrs if we use it only for calls.
    Headset is not up to the mark.
    Touch screen is too good.

    Very unreliable as a phone, great as a device in general

    I bought this phone from flipkart about 2 months back. Before this, I had been using Spice Mi-270 (dual sim android 2.2) and also use Nokia E-63 currently.

    Pros: really good screen:
    (1) brilliant display.
    (2) Touch is generally responsive, except while in call.
    (3) Media audio quality is good.
    (4) Phone is pretty handy, both in size & weight.
    (5) Internet browsing experience is great on this phone
    (6) General Apps work pretty well (didn't try angry birds & stuff like that)
    (7) Given that ...

    For the price that it comes with, it is a decent phone

    Hi,

    I bought this phone through flip kart in feb last week 2012.
    Please find my review after two months.
    I wanted a dual sim andriod phone from a branded manufacturer.
    Samsung had few options but the cameras were 2 MP and screen was smaller.
    I knew about optimus dual net for sometime but I was waiting for Motorola XT 532 for a long time but it did not get released till feb 2012. So i decided to purchase it.

    Pros

    Dual sim android 2.3 with a 10k price

    Good Phone

    Overall Very Good.

    I could not install LG PC Suite that was on SD card. I had to call Support but they gave solution very quickly. Apart from this, no other issues as I was setting it up.

    Touch, Sound Quality is good. Battery is an issue but I guess it is issue with most of the brands in this category.

    This is a good mobile to start with

    This is a really good mobile to start with

    This is my first Android mobile phone, I got gifted, This is really good mobile

    1. This mobile has a really good processor, it runs many application at a time, but however it sometimes hangs & need to restart it, dont install any external keyboard layout, it could be very disturbing after a while, this could cause your mobile hang for a while more.
    2. Dont like the dailer, it is the normal dialer as of all android mobile, sometimes causes problem ...

    Dont feel bad, if you already bought!!!

    Because, I am feeling very bad after spending 10k on this phone.
    The dual standby is really a bad feature. Many time it is taking 20 to 30 seconds to come to home screen after making a call!! If I want to make another call immediately....really it is testing patience.
    why LG is not taking care to release a software update, I dont understand. I would have read the reviews in flipkart before buying.

    Other than calling features, this is good at managing android apps, but what is the use?????

    Is it a phone or Device?

    I appreciate Kundan for giving a detailed description of the problems of this phone.

    Really its not yet all a phone only a device to manage android apps. Many a times to receive a call or ending a call showing HELL to me. Why LG is not taking care to release an update for this?

    Even the display color when we making a call is horrible.

    When we end a call it should immediately come to home screen or dial pad and nothing else. If we touch the end icon twice many a times it is redialing.
