    My wife got me an LG 3D Optimus for Xmas, after a few hints :)

    Upgrade from an iPhone 3G (the old one).

    Anyway, previously owned a Samsung 7inch tablet running android and haven't used android in around a year - so I have a couple of questions that hopefully are easy to answer...

    1. I have the task manager on the main screen, and it keeps telling me that apps are running even though I don't open them. For Messages and GMail, fair enough. There must be a sync option somewhere (haven't seen it tho). But LG World, New !! and Gallery etc seem to run by themselves slightly. I usually kill them.
    Q1.1: Is this normal?
    Q1.2: Is there an app that can tell what is running and swap to it?
    Q1.3: Is there an app or a place to find the sync/run options?

    2. Video, bloody cool to say the least, blows the eyes a bit in the 3d and video recording. If I wanted to rip DVDs is there a recommended setting for resolution (xy) and bit rate (1500?) ? Or a preferred format (I'm currently ripping to mp4 from a few DVDs as a test).

    3. Mp3 - I read on a post/forum somewhere that to get ringtones and notifications I had to create folders with said names on the sd card, drop in files. I've done this and they seem to appear so is this right?
    The media scanner loads all of them though so apps list notifications mixed in with songs. Is this normal and is there a way of grouping or filtering that can be done on the files?

    Thanks in advance for any post replies :)

    Got a fourth question:

    Tried GPS today - it seems very slow to locate me (failed for the first 10 times).

    Maps I presume is internet based... So probably slow, but GPS is built in isnt it? I will be testing again through the next week. Would be nice if it actually could find me though (and yes although I disable gps normally I turned it on via the pull down menu top of the phone).

    Of and a fifth question.
    To do with browser/data transfer. Has a little H in the top with up and down arrows. But sometimes the browser seems to freeze (wont go to a link no bar at the top moving). Any one had this? Is it normal?


    Thing that bugs me is apps that run in the background - eg hd background, or email (I have no external email details - only gmail which is its own app). Still haven't found out why it runs those...

    Otherwise - I am liking the phone a lot!
