LG KM900 Arena - Pocket-lint

 

Certainly a contender, but it won't suit everyone

User interface, feature set, build quality, screen quality, audio quality, bundled headphones are pretty good

Accelerometer doesn't always play nice, questionable third party software support, Wi-Fi doesn't support all data tasks, screen not so good in bright conditions

On paper the KM900 Arena is a very comprehensive offering, meeting pretty much all the tech specs you could want. The S-Class user interface is also pretty good, pulling together all of the features of the phone nicely.

LG KM900 Arena review

 

Is LG's latest touchscreen phone worthy of the flagship tag? We put it through its paces

Lovely high resolution touchscreen ; The S-Class customisable home screens helps make navigation simple

Inputting text is far too inaccurate and clicking links in the internet browser is sometimes very difficult

Overall, it's a classy package, just unfortunately let down by some rather large accuracy errors

LG KM900 Arena - First Look - Pocket-lint

 

The LG Arena looks to offer something that has been missing from the touch sector and unlike some rival handsets, this little gem will be on the market

S-Class interface, Dolby Mobile sound, compact, 3.5mm jack, build quality

Might be too small for some, might not have as wide application support as other platforms

Of course in our First Look we didn’t get to sample anything like the synchronisation of contacts or any of the messaging or calling functions, but our first impressions are really good. The interface is slick and fast, and you really feel like you are...

LG KM900 Arena review

 

LG's KM900 Arena is a touchscreen smartphone with multi-touch support, which places it in direct competition with Apple's iPhone.

LG Arena KM900

 

The Arena KM900 is LG's latest full-face touchscreen handset - and Sandra likes it.

The Arena is a great little mobile. Brimming with features and with a well-designed user interface. Just don't expect too much from that claim of '3D'.

LG KM900 Arena review

 

The Arena touch phone ushers in LG's swanky new S-Class user interface. Should you be licking your fingers in anticipation?

LG’s best touch phone to date and great for shooting video, but not quite accomplished enough to trouble the iPhone
