LG's first Android phone in India was a veritable disaster. It failed to impress on nearly every front and apart from the spacious full QWERTY keypad, it had nothing going for it. It had a poor display, outdated software, sluggish interface, poor call quality and horrible battery life. Their second Android handset in India, the GT450 Optimus, unfortunately never reached us for a review, so we don't know for sure how good or bad it was.
LG's latest Android phone in India is the P500, also called the Optimus One. Unlike its predecessors it makes a good first impression, with Android 2.2 Froyo being pre-installed and other features such as DivX/Xvid support. So we took it for a spin to see for ourselves whether it's any good.
