Default Lg p350

I got this phone a few days ago, and plan on making a review very soon. If there are any specific questions before that, I will try my best to answer. Also: hi, I'm new here.

Default Root

Hi, I would like to know if there's any way to root this phone (z4root didn't work). What I'm trying to do is to make it download and install by default on the sd card the apps from android market. Thanks.

I don't know, but I would like to try, because it seems to me that it's too slow for a 600 MHz phone.

do you own it? could you please post results here if you manage to root it?

Also, did you find any official website about the phone from LG? All I can find is Kazakhstan or something like that.

Does the LG PC suite work with any phone, or do you have to get a specific version of the software for that specific phone?

Thx,

Tox

Dobrodošao!

How slow is it? Does it affect everything, or just some applications, like browser?

How is the keyboard like? Is it difficult to use, since the screen is small?

And how does it support flash? I've read that it does support flash, but partially.

My girlfriend needs an affordable Android phone 'till she gets more money for something better, since her HTC Desire Z was stolen, so we're looking for the best option.

hi,

i just got my first android phone. the lg p350.
i am looking for an app where i can download images from facebook from my frieds albums.
bad side of p350: it seems to have a multi touch issue.
me and a friend got the same phone and we did a multi touch test and it seems not to respnd properly but for it's price it's good enough.

It has it's moments, it surprises me in one, and annoys the hell out of me in the other. Like, when you exit an app, you have to wait for 30 seconds sometimes for it to load all of the widgets on the homescreen.
The browser is pretty slow, but opera loading time is ultra fast. Also, you can't use SkyFire. Don't know why.

Well, I've got pretty big fingers and it works fine, but I think some other custom keyboard might be a better solution since this one (LG's) has a weird layout where the keys are directly one above the other in the bottom two rows, and shifted by half a key in the top two.. (i don't know if you can understand, but try reading it a couple of times, maybe it will make sense then)

That's true. If you visit a website with flash, sometimes you get an error - plugin missing, sometimes it loads. The youtube app works very well, except for the "not available on mobile" videos.

This could be the solution, but my biggest downsides of this phone are:

THE BATTERY - it lasts for 12 hours for me, max. (!?)
The screen - it's scratched, by a lighter in my pocket.. so i guess there's no protective layer there.
The LG software - Just... TERRIBLE.

All in all, it could be a great phone if I found a way to root it, and for now.. It's just good.

Hope that helps.

Well, that's expected from a phone with 600MHz... It's same with mine.

Oh. I thought that some things are working always, and some are not. Like, youtube videos work, but some other things don't, for example.

Well, my SE has a "protective layer", but it still got scratched, even though I keep it in a pocket that doesn't contain anything, so it wouldn't get scratched... but still it got scratched somehow. -.-

well, this is kind of a "how fast does a car go" question, but here goes nothing:

If you connect to a WiFi network it's a/b/g, and if you use any 3G network it's a ~3mbit link. Keep in mind that the screen resolution is smaller than most androids and that it doesn't support flash; so the surfing experience is somewhat different than on most android phones.

There should also be "my apps", "games" and "apps". under "apps" you have categories and you can buy stuff. also, you can just tap the search button and search for anything you want.

I have the same phone and the same problem...
When you have about 20 Mb free memory then you have to wait 30 sec to load widgets. With app "Super Box" you can see how many free memory do you have and if it's low try to kill the running apps.
And if memory is still low then reboot phone, that should do the trick

My LG P350 is pissing me off. Everytime I'll open the gallery, it will take minutes to display the pictures. Does anybody know what could be the reason for this? thanks..

Download QuickPic and use it instead of the Gallery APP. This helped me. It's ultra fast and stable but doesn't load online stuff (like PICASA uploads ... like the gallery does)

Thanks for th tip maneff! The only app thar slows my p350 down is "Lookout" anti virus, I disable it when I dont require, otherwise very pleased with unit especially the compactness!
Screen has protective layer which can be peeled off, I think it affects response. keeping it on until it gets to scratched like the rest of the phone will over time.

I recently bought an LG-P350 phone and when ever I take pictures, they never show up in the application called "Gallery".

I had the same problem when i bought it. So i took it to my mobile carrier's technician and he told me it's a problem with the gadget so you need to change it, that's what i did the next day i bought it.Check the guarantee No solution for that. Good Luck

Seems to me that it separates pictures that you capture with the camera from pics that you BlueTooth.

If you're seeing the pic that you bluetoothed, then up in the top left corner of the screen there should be what looks like a tiny picture of a couple snowy mountains.
Pressing on it should show 2 "folders". One of them obviously being your camera pics.

Hi there folks,

I'm new to the forum and got a P350/Optimus ME for sometime now. I found this handset pretty decent for the price I paid (roughly $60), but with a bunch of caveats more or less solvable, so I'll summarize what I've discovered so far:

1 - Battery life: 5 to 6 hours with 3G, Wifi, Bluetooth or GPS always turned on. I managed to extend battery duration using the Power Control widget to disable all this services when I'm not using them. I also rooted the beast using gingerbreak.rar following a tip on this forum and managed to install the SetCPU app, which can under-clock the handset to 122Mhz when the phone is idle. It's useful and spares a lot of battery. Managing the background apps and wireless connections as well as underclocking the handset makes battery life improve to something like 6 to 7 days.

2 - Performance: Avoid, if you can, the G+ client (I can't). I love Google Plus, but the client for Android looks bloated - at least for this handset. It clogs memory, sucks up CPU cycles and makes the overall experience miserable every time it's running. The BBC News and Economist apps were also bad so I uninstalled them right away. Bloated apps make the P-350 very unhappy.

3 - 3G: Although it's fast and works splendidly on the p-350, my data plan cap sucks, so I'm using 2G and sparing battery power and a few bucks. The WiFi feature is very decent, too, and I managed to achieve 7Mbps downloads measured with the Speed Test app.

4 - Apps: The Advanced task killer app helped me to unload background apps like G+, music, or any other I'm not using for the moment. As for the apps, Twitter, Facebook, World Newspapers, Opera, RT, RealCalc, AdobeReader, VNC, ASTRO, ES Task Manager, Landroid, Photoshop Express, Picasa Tool, Goodreads, Chrome to Phone, Barcode Scanner and Dropbox apps, among others, are all ok and light enough to provide a positive experience on the handset. Fifa 10, Pool Master, Quake, AngryBirds, PaperToss also ran beautifully.

5 - Games: Gaming is decent provided you disable everything (WiFi, auto-sync, GPS, bluetooth) and make a preemptive cleaning on the background running apps.

6 - Voice: For a LG , the phone system is pretty good. My kid used to have another - non-Android - LG handset and call/voice quality sucked bad.

I just keep in mind this phone CPU makes 600 bogomips, measured by SetCPU, and it's the same that a AMD K6 from years ago did (as opposed to the 3000 bogomips a Galaxy SII provides, which is comparable to a Pentium 4 1500Mhz), so I had to barebone the OS to the maximum in order to squeeze the best performance from it.

Cheers,

Rico.

I'm new to the forum and got a P350/Optimus ME for sometime now. I found this handset pretty decent for the price I paid (roughly $60), but with a bunch of caveats more or less solvable, so I'll summarize what I've discovered so far:

1 - Battery life: 5 to 6 hours with 3G, Wifi, Bluetooth or GPS always turned on. I managed to extend battery duration using the Power Control widget to disable all this services when I'm not using them. I also rooted the beast using gingerbreak.rar following a tip on this forum and managed to install the SetCPU app, which can under-clock the handset to 122Mhz when the phone is idle. It's useful and spares a lot of battery. Managing the background apps and wireless connections as well as underclocking the handset makes battery life improve to something like 6 to 7 days.

2 - Performance: Avoid, if you can, the G+ client (I can't). I love Google Plus, but the client for Android looks bloated - at least for this handset. It clogs memory, sucks up CPU cycles and makes the overall experience miserable every time it's running. The BBC News and Economist apps were also bad so I uninstalled them right away. Bloated apps make the P-350 very unhappy.

3 - 3G: Although it's fast and works splendidly on the p-350, my data plan cap sucks, so I'm using 2G and sparing battery power and a few bucks. The WiFi feature is very decent, too, and I managed to achieve 7Mbps downloads measured with the Speed Test app.

4 - Apps: The Advanced task killer app helped me to unload background apps like G+, music, or any other I'm not using for the moment. As for the apps, Twitter, Facebook, World Newspapers, Opera, RT, RealCalc, AdobeReader, VNC, ASTRO, ES Task Manager, Landroid, Photoshop Express, Picasa Tool, Goodreads, Chrome to Phone, Barcode Scanner and Dropbox apps, among others, are all ok and light enough to provide a positive experience on the handset. Fifa 10, Pool Master, Quake, AngryBirds, PaperToss also ran beautifully.

5 - Games: Gaming is decent provided you disable everything (WiFi, auto-sync, GPS, bluetooth) and make a preemptive cleaning on the background running apps.

6 - Voice: For a LG , the phone system is pretty good. My kid used to have another - non-Android - LG handset and call/voice quality sucked bad.

I just keep in mind this phone CPU makes 600 bogomips, measured by SetCPU, and it's the same that a AMD K6 from years ago did (as opposed to the 3000 bogomips a Galaxy SII provides, which is comparable to a Pentium 4 1500Mhz), so I had to barebone the OS to the maximum in order to squeeze the best performance from it.

Cheers,

Rico.

Hi Pierre,

I was talking about the exploit to gain root access to the LG P350, not the gingerbread new OS version that, as far as I know, is not yet available to this handset. A simple google search for gingerbreak.rar (I'm also a newbie, so I can't yet post links) will direct you to the file. Just unpack it, transfer via USB or Bluetooth to the handset and install it via some file manager (Astro, ES File Manager, etc).

Remember: after gaining root access you can *potentially* do things that can damage permanently your handset, so unless you already know what you're doing and what are the benefits, it's wise to do some research of your own on the pros and cons of such an endeavor.

For me, one of the best benefits was the fact I can run some network and development tools I couldn't without root access.

Good luck.

Sometimes its not the number of applications but what kind of apps you've installed and use. Example: Live Wallpapers can really slow down the P350.

Default daily use of p350

I am new to this forum or any forum for that matter, I had some questions and was wondering if anyone can help.
1. Every time I make a call the phone automatically locks is there a way to change that?
2. I seem to get text messages if there is a missed call telling me that I have a missed call.
3. when I place a call it says divert activated any ideas what that is or why that happens?
4. There are a bunch of apps that came with the phone I want to delete them but it wont let me how do I do it?
5. Why can't I seem to find anything about this phone on lg site. It seems as far as they are concerned this phone doesn't exists?

Any help will be greatly appreciated. If I posted this in the wrong thread I apologize if you could direct me to somewhere better to post that would be helpful thanks.

Welcome, ntf34,

Your questions:

1 - I also find annoying the lock phone feature, but I guess it's there to prevent the accidental answering of the phone when it is on your pocket, for example.

2 - Same here and I find this useful.

3 - Probably you have some sort of call forwarding on your settings. Check your phone config. It happened to me on an old Nokia I had and I disabled the feature and the message went away.

4 - To delete (or move to the SD card) the default apps you have to root your phone and manually erase them. If you're not familiar with Linux or Android, it's better to take your time and do some research of your own before doing so. I did it, but not without some fear of losing/bricking the phone. The forum is full of good tips to do so and I learnt a lot here.

5 - Truth is: The LG site is ugly/clumsy/trashy as hell. There's a Brazilian site for the P350, but it's poor and very clunky with lots of flash screens and few useful information. I couldn't find an English version of the site for the P-350, though. Sorry for not posting the links, but I'm also a newbie on the forum, so no links for me yet.

you will need the arabic add-on, try searching the marketplace for "arabic" among the most popular downloads.

The PC Suite doesn't work on Windows XP, if that is what you're using.

Maybe they're just not displaying. Go to your contacts, hit the options button, go to display options, then "Choose contacts to display". Hope this helps. If you have deleted them, I think that you can't bring them back.

Flash is unsupported on this operating system / phone. As for MP4, the standard player will play that nicely.

Try restoring it to factory settings (save your messages, contacts etc somewhere) and keep it low with the amount of apps you install. This is a very slow phone, low end market and cannot support a lot of apps installed. Try turning off automatic sync, and killing all of the processes now and then (there's a widget for both of these things - power control and app manager widgets).

If you are trying to sync with an iPhone, that doesn't work because of Apple. On all other devices, works just fine.

Try to install vignette from the market, it's a pretty good camera software with lots of features.
