Default Who is, or has, getting this?

I'm thinking of getting one. I need a replacement for my wife's OM (she accidentally dropped it in water). Hers still "works" but the ringing and notifications are now random. Most times it doesn't ring or let her know she she has a text.

Sounds good. 'Course it'll have to be rooted and get a custom recovery as well. I'm hoping it won't be too far off from the original OM for the rooting and recovery methods.

What is MDPI and HDPI? I do agree that the battery isn't all that great. I like the 3GB of storage space though.

Default noobie's first post

I unboxed the ms695 just hours after losing my ms690 to a misguided ROM flash mishap.
(any possibility of reviving the 690 ? I believe I flashed the wrong ROM ...)

Welcome aboard. So what do you think of the OM plus?

I have the phone, and I actually quite enjoy it. Finally, an entry level phone that doesn't skimp on features and performs well too. I don't know about you guys personally, but I couldn't care less about how fast the processor in my phone is as long as I have virtually no lag trying to use the phone as an actual phone. The optimus m+ delivers, it looks like $400 bucks and performs like $200.

Temple run is playable, if you're familiar, if you're wondering how the graphics perform, and note that it has full flash support out the box.
She's quick and fun out of the box, I cant wait to see what the boys at xda have in store for this thing.

DEFINITELY worth the extra $30 from an admire. It runs circles around the UI for some reason.

You say it has flash support out of the box; does that mean that it's already installed, or you have to go to the market and grab it?

Thank you for the info. Oh, tell about space for apps, please.

I believe Adobe flash was on the phone straight out of the box, it did need to updated I think, however.

App space is pretty nice for this little guy, I've got 1.87gb left on the phones built-in memory, but to be honest with a Micro sd, I don't see myself using the phones memory too much.

The RAM space is nice too, I usually have 200mb out of my 400mb available.

Battery could be better, but I guess then it couldn't be as sleek, props lg.

Surprisingly, This phone is selling very well. With the bad rep the optimus m was getting I've had quite a few customers come in just for this phone. I'm guessing in the looks department lg hit it off pretty big. I'm more worried about having to sell the huawei activa 4G. I Just Know its going to be trouble.

I just got this phone. I know it's been mentioned that it is MDPI but it doesn't look bad at all. I previously had a Wildfire that became a pain as soon as I downloaded a few apps. The screen on that was smaller and still looked less crisp than this does. I managed to get the battery to last me over 6 hours while I went to school yesterday, I used it very minimally though. Mostly had my data off, wifi off, and low brightness. Used it to text but no phone calls, I don't usually use the phone to make calls lol There is a very easy to use app manager that comes with the phone and can kill all your apps running so I find myself using that a lot just to keep my phone running smoothly. The camera is pretty good, in all honesty I used to have Droid 3 that was horribly slow at snapping pictures. I find the time it takes to take a picture with this phone pretty decent. Good quality. Haven't tested the camcorder yet. I think its pretty neat you can actually uninstall most of the MetroApps that come with the phone without rooting it.

That's cool that we can remove the metro bloat (or at least some).

I'm going to pick up on in the next couple of days. I'm really excited. I know it can be rooted now, but I will probably wait until we have a recovery for it before I root it (that way I can't accidentally do something I wouldn't want to do )

The LG Optimus M+ launched as an affordable device for Metro PCS. It is also the successor to the LG Optimus M (Optimus One). But the specs haven't been improved as much as we would expect. The device comes with an 800 MHz processor, a 3.5-i... Read More
