Was eager to get the LG Arena when it came out. Waited for a few months before i got it. Boy wish i hadn't bothered.
All these reviews berating this phone aren't far off the truth. This isn't a very good phone. Actually, its a very bad phone.
So many things that are wrong with it and go wrong, its so frustrating. The main thing its supposed to be - a phone - it doesn't do well. eg. cannot end calls as it doesn't register your touch - crazy!
LG say 'The place to play' on the box. Play... (read more)

The LG KM900.....This is without a doubt the most useless phone i have ever owned. Nothing works like it should. You cant even hang up when you finish a call as the touch buttons lock! It frequently losses network, the screen goes blank during calls, the touch screen has issues and locks as you speak,the battery life is terrible, the camera is nowhere near a 5MP, SMS's disappear, it won't open attachements and to think i let my wonderful Sony ericsson for this piece of garbage!!!
Am so not... (read more)

This is hands-down the worst phone I have ever owned. I have owned it now for about 15 months.
It's so slow
It turns itself off randomly
The touchscreen wont let you hang up sometimes so you end up leaving a rambling voicemail of you trying to commentate on your failed attempts of hanging up.
It doesn't have a single good standard messaging tone.
You cant turn vibrate off when it's loading things like the contacts menu
The alarm randomly goes off while you are setting it.
You... (read more)

This phone is absolutely appalling. It dropped calls tons, and the signal meter seemed to jump up and down at random, even when keeping it completely still. The battery lasts for about 2 days with the phone locked, and it lost it dropped by 10% for every 3 minutes of phone call, and drops 15% for every 3 minutes of web browsing with WiFi. The built in browser is really, really slow and awful. Java games run incredibly slowly, (slower than on my ancient Sony Ericsson from 2004,) and are... (read more)

Feel I ought to write this review, as I have just this minute given up with this phone! It's a absolutely rubbish.
The touch screen is verges on hyper sensitive to the opposite extreme of non responses.
It turns itself of as and when it pleases, mid way through conversations is the usual and it's not through battery loss.
The battery life is less than a 1 - 2 hours when it's being used frequently for calls and I dare not use the internet on it because the battery life goes almost straight... (read more)

The LG Arena has the potential to be very good, but has several software and hardware issues that blight it.
1. It will crash if you try to edit a text box with a lot of info in it (e.g. an email).
2. The reception is hopeless - it constantly skips between 2G and 3G networks, frequently saying there is no reception even in strng signal areas.
3. Internet connections regularly lock up - requiring a reboot to clear.
4. The GPS is good when it works, but most of the time it thinks I... (read more)

I have the LG Arena KM900 & I have never disliked a phone so much as I do this 1. I have always had Nokia's or Sony Ericsson's & never had any problems.
This is my 1st LG but 2nd mobile from T-mobile & an unwanted upgrade from them. The phone constantly crashes, freezes & I can't access all the features on the phone. I can charge mine near enough everyday. I can take pictures but I can't send or receive them albeit T-Mobile have sent all the settings to the phone so that I can.
This is... (read more)

The LG Arena KM900 is a physically strong and well built phone. It comes with many features. Touch screen is quite responsive. Some reviews have said that they are unable to text properly, I have myself had no problems, I am a fast texter too. The touch screen user interface is in early stages for LG but things can only get better. (for future phones).
The only gripe I have with this phone is that the user Interface can be a bit slow. The screen sometimes turns off when u get a call, so you... (read more)
