Wow, I don't what to say. Innocent

I've got the LG KF701, had it since last year and it's not that bad, but it's not great either. Calling isn't exactly clear but texting is fine. I tried setting up email and such but no luck. Limited applications as well.

The LG Optimus seems pretty on to it. I'd be able to use the Foursquare, Twitter, Facebook and GMail apps - it'll be sooo much easier as I could use then on the go. The browser on my LG KF701 isn't the best and the touch screen isn't the most sensitive. The LG Optimus' 8GB built-in memory and 8MP camera seem pretty sweet as well. 

I've never had an android phone before, but I'm not a total n00b so I guess the LG Optimus would be a great starter android phone, no?

If I had an LG Optimus 2X, then I could have used it to take a beautiful image of my Samsung Galaxy S, instead of having to do this cr@ppy drawing. And it would have been a lot quicker, I'll bet.

Thank you.


Galaxy S has gone to its new owner. HTC Sensation has gone to its new
owner. Galaxy S3 has gone to its new owner. Now using Galaxy Note 3. Skipping Note 4 I think...

When posting pictures, please make sure there isn't a space at the end of the URL. Sometimes when doing copy/paste a space is added during selection. If you don't see the image, then EDIT your post and make sure the URL is correct without a "%20" at the end...

It is about time for me to jump the smartphone bandwagon...  my phone is a lowly LG KP230.  

The Optimus 2X is a thing of beauty..

I have a nokia, I don't even know the model any more. My former insistence on choosing a no-frills phone was a simple-life badge of honour, but now it's just an embarrassment; especially when I'm developing mobile websites.

This LG Smartphone would a great replacement for my smart-ish phone, the Nokia E5. Problem I have is that I don't now have a personal mobile.  This thing is a work mobile and frankly, No Sir, I don't like it.

My Desire is almost a year old and only has one core. Also, as you can see, there are fingerprints on the screen. A new phone is the only solution.

Here is my current one, photo taken in the mirror. I need a newer one as it is restarting itself more and more...

Decrepit old SOnyEricsson T610 with yellow pixel cluster, cracked screen, and only usable for about 2 hours a day before it needs overnight recharge.

I could really use a decent phone because, though this one has a 2degrees Prepay SIM card in it, it won't reliably connect to the network because of a stuffed aerial. It would be nice to have a phone that actually Bl**dy worked. :)

My Samsung Galaxy 3 (i5800) running Android 2.1 with 7Launcher or whatever it is as the homescreen. The keyboard is painfully slow and the stock one is damn ugly. Need something with a bit of oomph and a somewhat recent OS.

Because my personal mobile is so old and outdated.. the touchscreen is terrible. :-(
I'm a geek and loving the whole Android OS - it keeps getting better and better.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S, but that is single core so the dual core Optimus would be better!
