Android or Windows Mobile: which is smarter to enjoy DVD and Video on your LG phone?

Android or Windows Mobile: which is smarter to enjoy DVD and Video on your LG phone?

With the competition of mobile market becoming more and more intense, most of big mobile phone companies constantly introduce new products. After Motorola’s Droid, Sony Ericsson’s Xperia X3 and Samsung Galaxy I7500, LG Company finally announced its first Android mobile phone – GW620 and the GM730e using the latest Windows Mobile operating system. This GW620 mobile phone has been launched in Canada, and renamed LG Eve. Basically an evolution of LG’s QWERTY messaging phones, the GW620 looks a little bit like a slimmed down version of Motorola’s Dext phone, with similar functionality too. Compare with other smart phones, the GM730e with six lively and lovely intelligent elves will be formally listed. So the netizens are full curious with the six cute “elves” and expectative in this LG GM730e coming. Now I have a simple summary about them. Hope it could provide some useful information to LG mobile lovers.

The phone is slim to hold in the hand, with a full slide out QWERTY keyboard. A 5MP camera sits on the back (with single LED flash), with the unit coming in with dimensions of 106 x 55 x 12 mm and 3-inch screen. Behind the slide out section, there’s an opening for a microSD card, and the up/down rocker switch too, with the microUSB and camera shutter buttons hidden around the edge for good measure too. It fits nicely in the hand when in portrait mode - but the bad news is the screen is only resistive, meaning that scrolling and tapping our way through was a lot less intuitive that other Android phones.
Button wise - with a menu, back and terminate button the only options to play with. The interface is an odd fusion between LG’s S-Class and the vanilla Android system. The same S-Class options are employed on the front home screen as well - instead of scrolling left and right to access new screens, you now get that ‘spinning’ cube interface for each new set of icons, which is a little cumbersome. Another nice touch is the presence of Facebook and Twitter baked right into the handset - send messages from your social networks right from the phone, something that’s becoming increasingly popular on today’s handsets (especially those based on Android).
Media is laid out in a similar way to Motorola’s Dext phone as well - in fact it’s identical, so we’re wondering if this is some kind of interface buried deep within Android that only Motorola and LG have managed to unearth.

GM 730e unlike traditional smart phone inflexible and complicated, it is more convenient and interesting. But bringing this revolutionary change lies in its S-Class 3D user interface of LG originate. Its relationship with Windows Mobile operating system is equivalent to the “skin” and “muscles”. With the help of S-Class 3D interface, the function of Windows Mobile operating system is strong and optimization, even without any operating experience of the users can quickly learn to use. Easily dissolve the problem like the initial users “I don’t know how to delete the messages”.
As a revolutionary product, GM730e appearance is so stylized and conspicuous. Its fuselage size is 109.8 x 56.5 x 11.9 mm, airframe small and thin, extremely fashionable feeling. 3 inches WQVGA resolution (240 * 400 pixels) screen, giving users’ larger space, while LG also increased S-Class 3D interface Windows Mobile system menu name, promoted the accuracy of the fingers. In order to allow users to feel better convenience of GM730e experience and let S-Class 3D interface with Windows Mobile fusion more perfect, LG for GM730e made excellent hardware platform, the central processor of 528 MHZ supports accelerated 3D graphics functions, not only make 3D interface more fluent, but also maintain the speed of multitasking quick reaction. Windows Mobile system itself entertainment function is strong enough, but GM730e also equipped with 500 million pixels and high-definition camera, support auto-focus and shooting night function etc. It also provides GPS navigation software, built-in national maps and various kinds of travel interest, bringing convenient and reliable positioning navigation and experience for customers.

Both are good mobile phone. In this era of music and movie popular, people not only care phone’s hardware, but also has more attention on its multimedia function. Both new LG phones have a 5MP camera to be able to shoot video! It supports single LED flash, auto-focus, auto-white balance and auto-exposure, build-in media player. But they are different in supporting video and audio formats. GW620, support video format: WMV、MPEG4、H.264、ASF and 3GP, etc and audio format: MP3、AAC、WMA、WAV, etc. And GM730e, support video format: MP4、WMV and 3GP, etc and audio format: MP3、AAC、AAC+、E-AAC+、AMR、WMA and WAV, etc. If you haven’t MP4 or WMV videos on your computer, you may use Nidesoft DVD to LG Converter to convert DVD files into LG compatible formats or use Nidesoft LG video converter to convert all other video files into LG, just follow the step by step guide.
Step 1: Install and run Nidesoft LG Video Converter. Click “Add File” button to import your video from your computer.

Step 2: Click the “Format” drop-down list to select the right format for your Sony player.
Step 3: Click the “Convert” button and start the conversion. The conversion will be finished in a short time and then you may enjoy videos.
In addition to the above model, both software could also support various types of LG phones such as: LG KP500, LG GT540, LG KF740, LG GD510, and LG GD510, LG KC910,etc. It is not hard to think that both are essential auxiliary software to LG mobile phone users.

With the development of technology, these mobile phone hardware and software developed quickly. It’s important that Android is to go from geeky to mainstream. This has greatly improved our life. Enjoy music anytime and anywhere makes our life more colorful and wonderful. Let’s just enjoy our lives, enjoy our days!

I would go with Droid.  For one, the software is open-source and open licensed.  This means it can be hacked/improved quite easily and easily be ported to a lot of devices.  Good luck seeing anything like that from M$.  

I’ve been known to stray off topic from time to time, but even I struggle to see what this has to do with the Sansa Fuze.

BTW, personally, i’d stay away from WinMo: with time it freezes, comes with little functionality out of the box (you need to install (for winmo that means BUY) software for almost everything), has a lot of problems when connecting to WPA networks and its interface is pretty ugly. 

Ah, and it’s MS’s proprietary crap. That means it’s buggier, updates are less frequent, less user-oriented, and you won’t be able to upgrade to newer versions of winmo.

Android is far superior, and, as it’s open-source, so nor the manufacturer nor the software developers can put artificial barriers on what you can do with it.

The answer is, of course, that neither can play DVD’s without a DVD drive.  Perhaps one will get an app that can play an ISO image, but that doesn’t seem like a great use of resource on such a small screen.

I think Motorola made the right move by pretty much wiping Winmobile out of their new product line.

Much as I like my LG phone (though getting dated), the OP is just an inappropriate advert… asking the subject question then answering:

They’re both GREAT, as long as it’s LG! 

Smells like a

to me.
