The sound quality of LG ARENA KM900 is really good both ways.

In-call quality is really good both ways. The only problem we encountered was slightly sharp voices when at full blast. The battery capacity should meet the needs of average consumers with its ability to provide 3.83 hours talk time and 300 hours of operation in standby mode.

You must be wondering if the LG ARENA KM900 is worth it and why it has such a high rating if it´s just another clone. In a nutshell, “Yes”, it is well worth it. But we need to explain away what we mean.  

It is evident that the manufacturer has done well with their new interface. LG seems to have taken similar course and adopted strategy quite reminiscent of what Nokia did with their first touch sensitive screen cell phone – the 5800 XpressMusic. Many people wondered as to why the Finnish company didn´t attack the market offering a high-tech top of the range device, but rather opted for a mainstream cell phone. It was nothing but a market test. And this is exactly what LG seems to be doing with the ARENA – just feeling the market with their new software. Well, it looks like we aren’t the only ones to like it, since the phone has been selling great ever since its official release. Several phones utilizing the S-CLASS 3D interface have already been announced as well, among them a smart phone that we are eagerly anticipating. Let´s hope it proves to be a multimedia monster to snatch the number one headband from the iPhone. The LG ARENA definitely makes for a good cell phone with touch sensitive screen, modern interface, although it disappoints with its multimedia capabilities, especially given the fact that makes manufactured in 2008 can play videos the ARENA can´t.

Pros

  • S-CLASS 3D interface rocks
  • High sound quality during talks
  • Good internet browser capabilities (it´s not Safari, but still…)
  • Far from looking luxurious, the phone looks great

Cons

  • Plays DivX и Xvid, but just at 320 pixel resolution
  • Snapshot quality is not so good
  • Keypad is good, but rather small and typing in with both hands feels uncomfortable
