LG P500 Optimus One Gingerbread Update Review Philippines

After trying out the LG Optimus One Gingerbread Update. I would say, it’s worth it.  After I install the update I started testing out my previously installed games like Angry birds Rio, and I’ve noticed that it runs more smoother compared when running on Froyo 2.2.2. I was expecting that since Google says that Gingerbread is optimized for games.  After I close the game it’s been my habit to kill task after I’ve open several programs. But, I’ve notice that the task killer was gone.  So I check the memory status on Android Assistant and found out that I no longer need that task killer for Gingerbread automatically remove programs or minimizes the use of memory of apps that are not running on foreground, which I think is very neat.  Another thing missing is the IO File Manager, which I think is a good thing since I don’t use it, because it’s lame. I use ES File Explorer most of the time, since it can access shared folder on my PC and FTP site and Dropbox and copy files from and to my phone and across the aforementioned device. There is also a download manager included in the update. The Layar app is also gone, which is also a program I didn’t use. The update also restore market link of my broken link apps, and all my previous data was not deleted this included sms, contacts, app data and call logs.

After evaluating the update for a couple of hours. I’d say it’s a good update.

Here is the list of the changes

Apps Removed

  • Layar
  • Task Killer
  • IO File Manager
  • LG App Assistant

Apps Added

  • Gingerbread Browser
  • Download Manager
Update Features
  • Improve Memory Management
  • Improve Graphic Performance
  • Black Notification Area
  • Improve Android Keyboard
  • Improve text selection and copy paste operation
  • Colored Icon on the System Settings

If there is something that you wanted to add or I might have overlooked please comment and I’ll put it here. Thank you for reading.

    I know that it wasn’t fix on the first release of updates, but the next day I tried to check if there’s a new update and it say’s yes, did you try to update to that newer one?? or that was just a bug of pc suite??

    after updated, may na remove na apps diba. so how about the log? sabi ng iba lag raw ang O1 then daming kernel na di na fix? ang Gps po ba gumagana parin po ba dito sa Philippines?

    1. Bovic says:

      Yes po.. gumagana po ang GPS dito sa pinas. Regarding the lag, Na lessen po siya nung Froyo 2.2.2 and after the Gingerbread 2.3.3 update na lessen po ulit. But, since LG Optimus One only runs @ 600mhz medyo lag po talaga kapag madaming graphical movement sa screen.

    I have a question, do you know any app that would place the percentage of the battery inside the battery icon (the one in the upper right corner beside the time).. because I saw a screen of an android phone that have that kind of app… thanks for your answer

      Widget po siya… not replace the battery icon on the upper right, but it does the job.^^
