Android Gingerbread Operating System

Android Gingerbread

The LG Optimus Slider runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread)--the fastest version of Android available for smartphones yet. It features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.

Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.

The onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.

The Optimus Slider also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.

I recently switched from Sprint to Virgin Mobile. At first, I bought a used Blackberry 8530. It was a terrible phone and it stopped communicating with Virgin Mobile within a week. On the hunt for a new phone, I heard about the Optimus V. It kinda reminded me of the Hero in it's look and capabilities, and coming from an EVO 4G with Sprint, that really didn't seem like enough.

That's when I found the Optimus Slider. The Slider has an 800mhz processor, which I feared would still be too slow, but was actually very snappy. Without the bloatware UI you find on HTC phones, this phone despite not being as powerful as my Evo, actually is faster in the menus. I used to get lag all the time with my Evo, and so far nothing with this (and this is while running live wallpapers and alternate launchers like Go Launcher).

The phone plays all the apps well that I had stored on my Android account, and works flawlessly with Amazon's app store. This was a huge plus for me, as when I rooted my Nook Color I had all sorts of problems running many applications. Everything on this however works flawlessly.

The keyboard's buttons are huge, and feel much easier to type on than other slide out keyboards. I never mess up while typing now, and never use the on screen keyboard. The red accents on the keys give it a very nice "droid" look, and the included Home/Menu/Back/Search buttons on the keyboard are a nice touch.

The camera is pretty ho hum. 3.2 Megapixels and no flash. It records video, which is a plus, but only has a rear facing camera. Overall, it's much worse than my Evo, but then again, my Evo's cameras weren't good enough to take high quality photos in either. I usually use my stand-alone camera for good photos, so on the go quick snapshots work just fine for what it is..

If you are still suffering with an Intercept, this is the phone for you! Although the specs say the screen is the same size, the Slider screen is higher resolution and slightly larger. Physically it is a little flatter and wider and it feels like a much more upscale device. There is virtually no lag in the UI, versus the tens of seconds on the Intercept. Physical Android keys mean positive feedback that you pressed one.

Games like Angry Birds and Nano Panda run great. Music output is clean, and videos play smoothly. Photos and videos are also an improvement over the Intercept.

The Android 2.3 dialer interface is MUCH improved over the one in 2.2 on the Intercept and you'll find yourself using fewer keystrokes and accidentally hanging up or re-dialing a lot less often. Recommend Mintues Checker for Virgin Mobile from the Market to keep track of how many minutes you have left. Skype also works almost okay over the 3G data connection, but there is enough distortion that touch tones don't work. Skype over WiFi is great with a headset, and toll free calls in the US are free on Skype (e.g. conference bridge numbers) and of course don't use any of your Virgin Mobile minutes.

Google turn by turn navigation with GPS and satellite images is there, although you have to download a voice synthesis app from the Market before you get voice prompts (it tells you which one to download).

Voice dialing is supported, but I highly recommend Choice Dialer+ Free for this phone, as you get confirmation of names before it calls unlike the native Google dialer that will happily start to call your ex-girlfriend or the San Diego Zoo when you asked it to call your Mom.

On the downside, battery life isn't as good as an Intercept.

I have owned the LG Optimus Slider (VM701) phone nearly a month. My spouse and I were able to take advantage of a Radio Shack special for Christmas 2011 that made this a far better buy. I can't complain about Virgin Mobile's service. We had to call customer service a couple times during and after activation and the reps were always friendly and we were not disconnected. That being said, I would advise that you activate your phone online. I called in my activation but had to go online before it "took". It took me about four hours for the phone to activate using my existing cell number but nearly two days and several phone calls for my spouse. (There is an "activation status" link on the Virgin Mobile website.)

As a first-time Android owner it is fun to explore the Android marketplace, where it is possible to download a number of apps directly to the handset. You name it, there's an app for that. That's the good news. Now for the bad: with 181MB internal memory -- not the 512MB indicated in Amazon's description -- the VM701 fills up very fast when running apps that must utilize or reside on that space. Here's what we learned: All apps, even apps that can move to the included 2 gigabyte micro SD card, require some of that internal memory to operate. To write text messages or the like, you must always have internal memory free or errors and freezes will occur. I loaded enough apps at one point to come within 14MB of the internal memory limit only to encounter a severe memory outage. My phone froze and I had to reset the battery five times in a row before I caught a tiny status message on boot-up indicating that memory had run out. Consequently, if I had to name one bad thing about this mobile phone it is that you will run into memory limitations very quickly if you go "app happy" like I did.
