The back side be warmed up....

When I opened the video within 3 min, I found the back cover is warmed up (more than 35 deg C). It didn't happen on other PDA phone I used. Maybe we can say that the gap between CUP and back cover.

Furthermore, It is used as a `FASHION'! Common builtin softwares on PDA phone are missed PDF reader, for example, is one. Recorder is another one...

The last but not the least, the listed price of the phone US$510 (HKD 3,980). Because of the supplier held up the delivery, the price from `authorised' shops raised to US$548 (HKD4,200). There is 7% higher. A sales people told me that they don't want to raise up the price. It is the `supplier' controled the delivery as limited source for getting higher profit.....

From business to business, we can say noting. As a customer, we can review again whether the product is good or not on the period of limited supply....

Avoid LG KS20 !

This phone has big display bugs : many GAPI applications do not work, and most DirectDraw ones do not work either.
Moreover, this PPC has no hardware support for the video decoding acceleration provided by the MSM7200 chipset used since LG did not mind putting the QTV driver in the ROM (while HTC has, with great result in CorePlayer).
There is also a microphone problem (it become mute) when switching between 2G and 3G. All they have to say about it is "disable 3G and it will be fine" !
Lastly, LG's customer support is worst than anything. After more than 3 months of customer complaints, they are still pretending there are no problems at all and do not seem to plan a ROM update to correct theses huge problems (they haven't announce anything at least).

Do not buy this LG if you plan to use it. Its sole good point is its look, but I would prefer being able to use it in good conditions...
