The most exciting new developments for me include a built-in mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, so if you’re somewhere that hasn’t got Wi-Fi coverage, you can create your own.
And you’d expect from an upgrade to Android 2.2, everything’s just got a lot faster. The operating system and browser are 2-5 times faster than before and when you use the phone, you can really tell.
There’s also a 3D media gallery, which makes scrolling through your photos and videos much easier. It looks great and it really makes your pictures stand out.
The Optimus One also includes a really sensitive touchscreen and LG App Advisor, which provides fornightly recommendations of the best apps out there.
It’s also the first phone on Three’s network to have a piece of technology built inside to give it two internal antennas instead of the usual one for picking up Three’s 3G signal. This makes sure you get the best download speeds on our 3G network.
Until the end of 2010 too, the Optimus One comes with a free car mount and charger so you can make the most of Google Maps, when you’re on the road and don’t want to get lost this winter!
