This has a res. touch screen at this price point a better cap. touch screen.

Poor phone for the price - was cheaper at Tesco just a few weeks back. The new LG Optimus Me is much much better and only £10 dearer and has a capacitive screen.

Hi Max,

Out of the 2 LG Handsets mentioned in this thread the Optimus Me is far superior - however, if you buy through Tesco it comes locked to Tesco Network and they charge £20 to unlock. Saw some offering unlock service for about £8. Depends whether you can get it sim free for less than the cost of buying from Tesco and adding unlock cost - cant even use a O2 or Giffgaff sim as I tried.

Don't really need to put new rom on as performed fine out the box - runs 2.2 straight out the box.

cheers stuart.

cant use a o2/giff sim in after its unlocked?
thats just mad
i use o2 and giff.

Sorry for any confusion but if you get the phone unlocked you can use a O2/Giffgaff sim - just that some people assume you could use an O2 sim without getting it unlocked as Tesco use the O2 network. However, this handset is what they call "double locked" therefore only the Tesco Sim will work until phone is unlocked.

Possibly when the phone becomes more popular (which i'm sure it will) the guys over at modaco or xda will come up with a free unlock.

hands down worst piece of technoogy ive ever used.
