LG Mini Tiësto with multimedia content

Because we are testing the LG Mini GD880 as the Tiësto edition, we already received quite a bit of multimedia content in the phone. You can manage and view everything in the menu, under ‘my media’. The categories are images, videos, sounds, games and applications, and everything can be found easily and you can choose between the phone’s memory, the memory card, or both locations for storage. The mediaplayer itself is neat, but simple. You see a timeline and the control keys. There is also, if available, a cd-cover shown. Speaker sound is pretty good. Of course a headset is included, and any headset with a 3.5mm connection can be used. The headset’s connection is found on the top of the phone.

Synchronize data with LG Sync

New in the LG is the LG Air Sync. The option can be found in the menu, after which you can create an account via the Internet. Once you have logged on, you can choose for a PIM-synchronization and Air linking. Via the computer you can log on at lgairsync.com, which allows you to view all the data. Here you can also upload images from the computer, or view the images after they have been uploaded via the phone to a special album. This way you can synchronize images, contacts, agenda items, memos and tasks without having to connect the phone to the computer. It is a fun, handy service.

LG GD880 standby time

The 3.7V 900mAh Lithium Ion battery that comes included delivers fairly good performances. With such smartphones it is often hard to say what the standby time is, because it truly depends on the type of use. Intensive use, such as a lot of Internet surfing and listening to music, can easily empty the battery within a day. With normal use, it can last two to three days without having to recharge. This is pretty standard, but of course not ideal. If you want to be ensured that you can always use the LG mini GD880, than you will have to acquire a car charger or an extra battery.

Internal and external memory

The LG Mini GD880’s internal memory has a standard capacity of 100MB. With the camera, the music functions and the possibility to watch a movie on this LG cell phone, this is certainly on the small side. The memory can of course be extended. The LG Mini has an elegant tab on the side, behind which a microSD/SDHC memory card can be placed. The LG GD880 Tiësto Edition that we tested had a standard 8GB memory card included in the packaging. The LG Mini supports memory cards up to a maximum of 32GB.
