Great value, top spec Android phone for the price. This mobile has near identical specs to the Samsung Galaxy S2 but about £200 cheaper. 2.3 Gingerbread on its way

Good Phone!! Very Fast!! complete phone

on the first purchased I found very terrible problem in the phone. Phone did not start until you remove the battery.. I noticed this problem on the very first day.. Then It was exchanged by the dealer with the new Sealed packed Phone... Now the new phone is working excellent... very very fast... yes tegra dual core processor is awesome.. all applications opens veryyyy fast... As compare to single core dual core processor is remarkably fast.. Do not think that LG is a cheaper brand..... Just buy this product this is equivalent to samsung s2 with lesser price... only waiting for gingerbread upgrade 2.3 ver by this upgrade both cores of the processor will work together... gives more better results...
