I am a miserly android user not wanting to pay hundreds of dollars for a smartphone, but i still want to buy a quality device. I'm currently trying to replace my garminfone (free), which is stuck on eclair, but i'm running into some problems deciding on what to upgrade to.
The LG Optimus T seems to be one of the better low-end phones that i've looked at, but i am very concerned about the lack of internal memory.
I'm a big gamer, and honestly the main reason i want to upgrade is better performance of online apps (ahem parallel kingdom), but the lack of internal memory concerns me a bit. even my garmin has 3gb internal storage and 510mb of application storage, while the optimus only has 170. garmin also has a 600 MHz ARM 11 processor, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset. i'm not sure what any of that is, but it sounds impressive
i've also seen that gingerbread isn't available for the optimus yet, and i'd like to keep up with new android versions. And on top of that, i've seen in some reviews that users are having troubles with the phone bugging with dropped calls, black screens, etc.
So what i want out of the phone is:
-Good App performance
-good compatibility with third-party apps
-good web performance
-fast system performance
calls and texts are secondary to all these, haha
So, will the optimus fulfill my desires of a phone, or should i keep looking (any recommendations would be appreciated)?
