What's wrong with a low-end phone?

I don't understand the bashing of this phone.

If you need a phone with a fast processor, great camera, or high-res screen, this phone isn't for you. LG makes phones like the Nitro for demanding consumers like you who can afford high-end phones.

Some people need a cheap phone more than they need a fast processor. This phone is for them. There will always be a market for very affordable phone.

Agreed, Rich--but these low power processors don't run Android too well.

There is nothing wrong with buying a entry level android phone, but with 800mhz processor, the low amount of user memory, and the 3.2 inch screen, this phone will offer a horrible user experience. People who have own entry level phones like this can tell about the horrible user experience. I learned about using android on a Samsung Intercept.

You're crazy. No other way to put it.

I have a Samsung Galaxy 500 (GT-I5500). This is a phone that comes standard with a 600Mhz processor, I have updated the Device to Android 2.2.2, and it works phenominally. Since I bought the phone (at christmas) It has never, one single time, ever frozen, I have never had an app crash, and going through the menus, there is zero lag. Yes, this phone has less menu lag then the 1.5 Ghz dual core Nitro, and it is 600Mhz. Also, for some gaming, got Angry Birds. When I load angry-birds on my iPod 4 (1 Ghz processor) it runs with lag for the first 1 to 2 minutes. When I load angry birds with the I5500, there is no lag at all. It runs perfectly, smoothly, and nicely the whole way through.

So yeah, 6...

My point is why are they even bothering with this and calling it the version 2 when they have made no signifigant improvements..

If you're releasing a phone now, it should have ICS on it already. No excuses. Android has notorious fragmentation problems as it is.
