LG Optimus One lands, priced at 50% off!

LG Philippines silently released a new variant in their Optimus Android series of smartphones in the local market. Announced last September 14, the LG Optimus One is now available in stores with a suggested retail price of Php12,990.

The Optimus One is among the very few handsets to have Froyo 2.2 pre-installed straight out of the box.

LG Optimus One P500
3.2″ capacitive display @ 320×480 pixels
600 MHz Processor
170MB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD
HSDPA 7.2Mbps
WiFi 802.11 b/g
Bluetooth 2.1
3.15MP autofocus camera
Stereo FM Radio
GPS w/ aGPS support
1500mAh Li-Ion battery
Android 2.2 Froyo

If you think the Php12,990 is not that very attractive, how about a 50% discount to bring it down to just Php6,495? The blast off sale will happen on November 13 and will be offered in all LG Concept Stores in the malls (SM Megamall, SM North EDSA Annex, SM Cebu, and Gaisano Davao).

Here’s the catch — this one-day sale will also happen in just a one-hour window so you need to be there when the clock strikes on top of the hour. Will post more details when I get more info from LG Philippines.

Update: Just confirmed that the sale will happen between 2:00 – 3:00 PM on November 13, 2010.

    I bought this phone for P12,900. It’s worth it, you can’t ask for more because it is powered by the latest Android 2.2 Froyo though it’s not the 10.1 flash like the other powerful Droid phone offered, so you can’t play facebook games, but the price worth it. It’s still a smart phone with a very cheap price. I maximized it’s usage by downloading “Free” Apps in Android Market. It has NDrive software with it, it’s a GPS Navigation software which you can download the Philippine Road Map. I’m not sure if it’s just a free trial but still waiting for 7 days just to confirm that it’s not. This navigation software doesn’t need an Internet connection for it to work (except for the initial set-up and upgrades). The Augmented Reality stuff, Google Goggles app are awesome. Too bad out Network Providers can’t maximize its usage. Good things there’s wi-fi hot spot everywhere.

    In short, it’s still Froyo w/o 10.1 flash in cheaper price compared with Galaxy S and HTC Desire. Good for beginner Droid Phone user.

    CRAP!!!. i will not buy it.. boycott LG product kahit ibenta pa nila ng 1 thousand yan.. di ko bibilhin yan.. :) I rather buy samsung product or HTC…

  9. Avatar for Jayson Jayson says:

    Hi, I think baka mas may magandang offer pa ang LG for the Philippines dahil dito…


    Malay natin baka yung isang unit naman ang ibenta at 50% off? Ang LG GT540 Optimus

    Kailangan maging impressive ang kanilang handset sales…

    Kaya LG Philippines, make that Optimus One P500 selling price at 6,500-7,000 range and your sales will definitely go up…

    Siguro naman may profit pa rin sila kahit 6,500 lang ang benta sa Optimus One????

    Optimus One is LG’s fastest-selling phone ever: one million in 40 days


    sayang, record breaker din sana ang LG OPTIMUS ONE dito sa Pilipinas. kung naging matino lang yung mga nasa counter sa pagprocess. hayss..

    moving on na lang. sana mag-sale ulit sila kahit 30% kang. i’ve been targeting this phone eversince narelease siya sa korea because of its undeniably good performance and reviews sa net. at sa mas affordable price pa compared sa ibang android-based phone diyan.

    me point naman si concern_po_sa_inyo. hehe konting analyze lng ng sitwasyon.

    Im not from LG and I have this phone. nabili ko nung Oct31 pa @12,990. pinili ko to over HTC wildfire which has only 528mhz and 240 x 320 Qvga resolution, tpos ang mahal mahal pa. bago pa maganap ang sale nag popost na ko dito.

    ok naman yung phone. problema ko lng ngayon is may 1 dead pixel ako. Pero di nman masyado halata kasi sobrang liit.sir yuga covered ba yun ng warranty? nag search ako sa net kelangan 5-10 dead pixel ung requirement para replacement na.(HTC brand). Tnx peace!

    Guys I bet you hindi worth it magka LG na phone. wag kayong manghinayang. Yung LG phone ko laging nag hahang, nag auto-turn off nang basta basta. get a samsung or nokia or iphone. LG is a waste of money.

    halatang planted ka ng LG. another FAIL at PR and crisis management. concern mo mukha mo!

    what a hard sell LG, that’s just low! naka all caps pa sa LG optimus one, product comparison, plug-in na may december sale…


  20. Avatar for concern_po_sa_inyo concern_po_sa_inyo says:

    Bago ang lahat, nais ko lang malaman ng buong sambayanan na isa rin ako sa mga pumila during the sale. pero guess what, sumuko ako sa pila kasi alam kong di na kaya ng oras. just looking at it, ang haba ng pila for me to make it.

    Common sense lang po yung pinairal ko since nakalagay naman sa promo na 2PM-3PM lang ang time range na pwede ma-avail yung promo. At alam kong I will not able to make it na. So I give up.

    Ang payo ko po sa inyo, just move on na lang. Marami pa mangyayaring sale gaya nito. Kung di tayo pinalad na makakuha sa 50% sale ng LG sa very decent phone na optimus one, dapat positive tayo na may other chance pa.

    Yung iba kasi dito pansin ko lang galit na galit to the point na ibo-boycott na raw ang LG products and everything. We can’t deny the fact na maganda talaga ang LG OPTIMUS ONE, good reviews all over the net. Nakita ko ang benchmark niya at malayong mas okay siya sa HTC, MotoDroid, SExperia.

    I’m still going to buy this phone. Pero titignan ko pa kung magsi-sale sila ngayong december.

Napakasahol nila. Hindi pa nga sila sikat tulad ng nokia, ang yabang yabang na nila. Basura naman halos lahat ng produkto nila. nagkainteres lang ang mga tao bumili neto dahil 50% off. kung hindi naman yan 50% off wala namang bibili niyan e.

    Ang galing nyo magpaasa ng tao. Kahit na cguro one hour na Sale lang yan if marami ang staff na mag-aasikaso marami ang mapapagbigyan. Isa ang nagdedemo, isa ang cashier (mano2x pa), isa magrerelease. Ang ibang staff nakatungaga lang. For sure ganon din sa ibang lugar, ok din kayong tlga LG noh, then ng malapit na ang time at marami nagagalit all of the sudden you said na eextend ang promo.. more units will be release at tatawagan lang! Don’t give us the reason dahil first time nyo lang nagkaroon ng ganitong promo, nde nyo na-anticipate na ganito mangyayari. ano kayo nde professional? nde marunong mag-isip?? These are all your marketing strategy pra mapasikat produkto nyo.. Good news you’ve got our attention, bad impression nga lang! DTI must look at this, at sna nde na mauulit ang ganito. GoodLuck na lang sa LG!

I WILL NEVER BY AN LG PRODUCT AGAIN IN MY LIFE! If this is they way they plan and implement their promotions, then their products must be planned and implemented the same way–TERRIBLE!!! Dont buy LG and tell your friends not to by LG. More Android phones are coming out soon. Cheaper and probably better made than LG. LETS ALL FILE A COMPLAINT WITH DTI!

From that 1hr, they’ve only accommodated like less than 20? it took almost 20 mins for 3 people to buy. THEY SHOULDN’T HAVE MADE “PROMOS” WHEREIN THEY’RE NOT ACTUALLY PLANNING ON SELLING!

  42. Avatar for juice406 juice406 says:

    here’s why lg will never be as popular as nokia. apparently the promo was for the staff and big bosses only. that’s why unlike nokia they did not give out numbers for those who are in line. this is so that when the ‘happy hour’ begins they can easily sneak in their people to fall in line for them. case in point, one of the managers in megamall was able to buy 2 units (her people should be at around 50th of the line) whereas the 4th guy is still lining up outside. of course they milked the event for all it’s worth. one of their staffs goes around the line to inform them that they should wait in line because they will be served. life’s good, ain’t it?

  43. Avatar for blank blank says:

    may pinapasok ng maaga si SM!! ang masama sa LG, pinaasa nila tao. before 12 nag ask na kami na kung wala naman units eh pauwiin na mga tao. sinabi ko na dapat from main eh alam kung ilan units lang dadalhin. tapos ang sabi eh depende daw din sa DTI kung extend yung promo time beynod 1 hour. that’s why they kept people waiting. Grabe.

    we were at the megamall from 8am….waited till the opening of doors…..since i am the first in the line, we ran….i missed the escalator side, so 4 more guys were able to go ahead of me. but it was okay….until I arrived to find out that a group of people were let in earlier ahead of us (they were let in by the guard). Only a hundred people away at first, but we’re not satisfied, knowing that there is only one cashier, and all freakin’ crap of people who wouldn’t give number unlike the nokia. As expected, we were left out to be about 800th when 2pm came….

    we were telling the staff that they should at least give number or give the cutoff already instead of making publicity over people who are going to be WASTING their time over some stupid crap of sellers.

    We were discussing computations of estimated people they were going to be able to capacitate but the damn staffs just want a lot of people crowding around. we’ve heard enough excuses, LG!

    Damihan yung lane para multiple transactions ang magawa at madami ang units na maibenta.

    been to gmall davao to see how my friends who went for the promo were doing. at the end of the 1-hour period, only less than 50 units were sold (around 41 IIRC). it was a very frustrating experience for my friends considering they were already in line when the mall opened. kupad talaga ng processing ng LG. nokia, on the other hand, was organized despite having only a few customer.

    LG might have gained publicity on this sale but it sure isn’t positive as it left a lot of angry customers.

    Guys lets do the math sa promo na ito, lets assume that LG can release a phone every 30 seconds, in 1 hr there is only 3600 seconds so that 3600/30 = 120. So only 120 phones will be given out at 50% off. Lets just say they are really fast, 1 phone every 15 seconds, thats still only 240 phones. So chances are a lot of people will go home disappointed. If you are at the back of the line right now and is really desperate to get an Optimus One and is willing to pay the regular price, better leave the line immediately and buy the phone at LG at the regular price before they run out of stock.

    I was in Megamall at around 10:30AM and was surprised that the line to the promo is already on the floor below, grabe ang dami, sobra! I spoke with an LG sales lady and I told her I’m willing to line up even the whole day if you can guarantee that I’l get served when it’s my turn already, unfortunately she can’t make one, I told her that there’s no way you can serve a hundred even if you have 8 cashiers in an hour.

    Wish ko lang na ulitin nila ulit yun event and make it half day instead of the ridiculous one hour, libre naman mangarap :D

    Update on LG Megamall:

    People who weren’t able to line up are complaining already.. Although diskartehan lang talaga labanan dito, I can still feel their frustration. One gripe is LG advertised this promo so much, they can’t even handle or accommodate the people. SM guards and even the janitors are used to organize the event (there are bouncers though). I can smell riot later LOL. I guess I’m just lucky to be on the top 30.

    There are probably around 1000 people in line already. Nokia is no different either.

    There are about 1,000++ people in here already. When the gate opened at 10am, people came rushing in, everyone’s running. It was a crazy scene.. The first 50 people are lined in near the LG Concept Store. While the other hundred are lined all the way up to the escalator area.

    Nokia on the other hand, gave numbers so people can go out of the line and can just go back before 1pm. But some are still lined in though.

    Hate to be the bringer of bad news, as per kanina lang na pag punta ko ng 09:20 PM, sa megamall, LG Concept Store, sabi nung mga clerk nila na wala naman daw stub stub na ibibigay, ang system daw, bali wala silang pakialam sa mga tao na nakapila sa labas, either sm daw ang bahala s kanila o whatever, basta ang pagpapapasok lang daw nila ng tao ay by 10 pax, which means cguro 10 people lang ang pede sa maliet nilang concept store, at hopefully sabay sabay silang maaccomodate, basta ang assurance daw, first 10 people in the LG Store ng 2PM ang first batch, then next 10 lang after nila, and so on… hanggang mag 3PM… so SUPER NABADTRIP AKO KASI BALEWALA DIN ANG MGA MAGIGISING NG MAAGA DUN, PARA MAG ANTAY NG START NG PROMO ng 2PM… ^%^$!*&#&*^#$ NINYO LG!!!

    I quote the girl na medyo maputi na tinanungan ko, “Wala po kaming pakialam sa pipila diyan at ndi po namin sila susundin ng pagpapapasok s store, basta ang systema po, first 10 people ang batch 1, then so on, either SM na ang mag cocontrol s crowd or whatever, basta po hindi namin ung responsibility”, nung tinanong ko na pano ung mga magaantay ng morning dito???

    I asked then the guy na mukhang drained from his work in LG there s kbilang side ng booth, and same answer.

    You will know that I’m telling the truth pag nakita ninyo yung dlawang staff nila dun bukas…

    One maputing girl na medyo may itsura,
    And another guy na matangkad na medyo mapayat, na medyo maitem dahil sa mukhang stressed.

    Just call LG store, basta kailangan ordered, paid & processed before 3pm can avail of the discount, even you given a stub, even you are line up, even if you are inside the store, even ……
    when 3pm strike, no more discount daw.

    so it can be 3 units only (if they demo, test, etc etc) 1 unit for an hour,

    how can DTI approve such promo without clear direction, it sure to create chaos.

    I think it’s because in the video, that was the first time the phone’s been activated.

    Also, if you noticed in the video, the Orange label also appeared (which I think is a carrier in the UK), so probably they also added bloatware in there to slow things down.

    Im no expert in cellphones, but i found this unboxing video from geektv and noticed the OS was loading for more than a minute (from when the Android logo was displayed; see 3:05-4:18).

    What’s not clear to me is, on their Facebook page, they said they will have enough units to sell within the one hour time frame. While some of the readers here says they have talked to someone working at a participating concept store, and told them they will only sell 50 units.

    Sa sobrang bagal ba ng service nila eh 50 units lang kaya nila ibenta in one hour? O mali lang talaga yung speculation na 50 units ang ibebenta?

    Can we get more info from LG sir Yuga?

    30% deal will be on i think november 20 or the week after nun

    Yung 10% daw eh sa december pa

  201. Avatar for JKisaragi JKisaragi says:


    fishy indeed. Lalo na to:

    Out of Stock as of the moment. Next Batch to come in Friday or Monday.

    So, malamang sa Monday? Hahahaha!

    Anyhow, the 30% deal still is enticing. Kelan kaya yun? XD

  202. Avatar for JKisaragi JKisaragi says:

    Hmmm…since LG went on to promote this event, then a DTI permit is required.

    On the promo add though, there is no mention of limited stocks available for the promo (like the 50 unit cap mentioned here). So it all boils down to how fast they tend to their customers during the hour and how much stock there is on the store.

    Oh well, good luck sa lahat ng pupunta. I just wish na maayos ang magiging event (damihan nila yung staff sa stores at lanes ng cashiers or something). At please lang, wag sanang pairalin ang pagkagahaman ng iba to the point na gagawa na ng kung anu-anong kabalastugan during the event.

    Pag di ako umabot, baka bumili na lang ako ng Wildfire as my secondary unit. Ayos rin kasi yung red nun. Haha!

  235. Avatar for JKisaragi JKisaragi says:


    After reviewing the exemptions from permit requirements (DTI), in which number 5 states:

    5. In store promotions, such as, but not limited to price reduction promotions, discount sales and premium-in pack in which no advertisements are made on such sales promotion campaigns.

    Then I guess swak sa banga ang promo na to wherein they won’t need to have a permit or would ever require supervision from a DTI rep. :)


  236. Avatar for dongv dongv says:

    since this is a promo, it should be under DTI supervision,
    so the rule will be set properly and announced properly without taking advantage of interested party that LG might divert this into an hidden advertisement.
    Am sure LG would also wants to clear up how this promo works so they won’t be blamed by interested consumers,

    UNLESS, they have other intention.

    For me, I want it but I won’t go unless there is a clear scheme on how to avail the promo so no time & effort will be wasted.

    best is verify this with DTI, still days to go that LG should clear the shadow on this false gimmick but hope it turns to be a good intention for us consumers.

    sa mga nag sasabing may hidden defect I have this fone from Oct 31. nung unang nagkaron sila, up until now wala pa naman akong na experience na problem. saka may warranty naman yan. sabi nga ni mylifesgood.ph We are introducing the LG OPTIMUS ONE at half the price because we’re subsidizing the handset just so many could experience the optimum smartphone experiences. We believe when one could try the OPTIMUS ONE, he/she could help us popularize smart phones and at the same time expand the overall Google mobile experience, most especially here in the Philippines.

    meaning pag marami ng may ari at ok naman syempre i-rerecommend nila tong fone na to sa mga friends nila. So dont worry about the 50% off buti nga may ganun. :)

    Isa ako sa mga pipila ng maaga for a chance to buy this phone, bakit ako mahihiya?

I agree with your safety concern, as it is also one of my main concerns but please be careful with your choice of words friend. This is the internet, but we don’t have to resort to antagonizing people just because they want to get a good deal. Peace.

    Hindi niyo ba nakikita bakit madidiscount ito to 50%? May sira na kasi sa model na yan eh, tignan niyo mga review websites ng phone na ito, ang dami problems sa hardware. Kaya siguro 50% para mabenta na yung units and at the same time may kita pa rin kahit papano yung model.

    Sayang, maganda sana yung promo pero sira talaga yung phone eh.

    Hahaha.. So many speculations.. Basta, if im not able to get one, wouldn’t care anymore to android, will just wait for wm7 phones..

  313. Avatar for Marcus Marcus says:

    grabe naman makapag comment si Leeto, Joseph The Dreamer, Oracle or Oda Mae Brown?! di naman siguro, kung libre malamang, but if you’re shelling out 6K, I doubt any stampede. Stampede ng mga techie, sosy at pa-sosy. Ouch, dude back-off you make tapak my stilletos! tipong ganung eksena..

  314. Avatar for Benchmark Benchmark says:

    It is very tempting indeed! But I think every store will only have about 100 units or less.

    Like what Shopwise did when they post a 1K HP digital camera…wala pang 30 minutes ata yun, ubos na yung stocks nila (kahit you need to buy 2k worth of groceries…) what more about that.

    Hmmm malabo atang makakuha ako nyan, pero I will see na lang if they really have a thousand of stocks.

    BTW I haven’t use any LG phone in my life.

    Will this be my first LG phone?

    First impression lasts…I hope if I had a chance to have one, sana hinde ako madismaya…

    Nah, I will stick with my Samsung Star (NO WIFI)…

    …but then again, time will tell! Hahahaha

    To LG,

    Expect stampedes or even death if you limit this event to one hour. That will surely happen in events like this.

    Reconsider your promotional strategy, or you might have bloods of people on your hands.

    ano ang ctach ng 1hr sale? ma-accomodate ba nila lahat ng pupunta? Dapat ginawa nilang for first 50 units – 50% off IMO

    Haha! Joke lang. Katakot, baka meron ngang magdala, ako pa masisi. O_O

    I’m sure limited stocks yan. Question would be “how limited?” Baka 50 units lang pala in that hour. Hassle.

    Let’s all just hope that the whole event will be organized, so that we can ALL get our hands on the phone at half the price. :)

    (Side Note: I’m still hoping for the FroYo update of the SGS to see daylight before Nov 13, so that I won’t find the need to go there.)

    Pero just in case, good luck na lang sa ating lahat na nagbabalak sa 13. XD

  323. Avatar for Jan Brane Jan Brane says:

    OMG. Im sure pila na to from bukas ng mall til 2PM. waaah. sugod na sa Megamall and SM North, I just hope they have enough stock to satisfy everyone. I’m sure a lot of businessmen will take advantage of this sale.

    Just a suggestion: why not… give out numbers para di magkaubusan para sure na first come first serve?

  324. Avatar for tantra2sex tantra2sex says:

    Sayang may lg store pa naman dito SM Baguio,kaso d naman kasali sa mag sale na LG Store,huhuhu!

  325. Avatar for ron ron says:

    This is a clever strategy by LG and if it’s a trick I hope there’s no connivance here. Certainly a lot of customers will be pissed off. I too want to get one and I will hate this blog and LG if it turns out I was just tricked. I still do hope the specific time is posted here though and they have enough phones to satisfy everyone on that hour…

  326. Avatar for Van Van says:


    Do you have any news about the LG Optimus Chic. When will it be released, how much and will it have the same 50% off promo?

    The LG Optimus Chic is basically the same phone except for better looks, 5mp camera and somewhat smaller battery.



    I think the date has been announced by Yuga already.

  327. Avatar for ron ron says:

    I hope this is not another media mileage trick. Of course it will be a terrible inconvenience for some people just to get to this few specific mall to buy this phone and finds out they ran out of stock immediately on the hour of the promo. I also doubt if the time even gets announced at all here. I believe LG won’t announce it in advance because they want more people to converge at their concept stores on that day for media to feast on…

  328. Avatar for char char says:

    sir Yuga pwede po ba ang credit card? tsaka aside from the mentioned Malls above saan pa po sila mag-sale?

    Sa mga nagrere-post nito, wag na kayo mang-gatong, dumadami tuloy kaagaw namin. Haha

  331. Avatar for wreek888 wreek888 says:

    Im sure by the time you arrive there ay out of stock na dahil nabili na ng mga employees ng mall or kakilala ng stores and i believe that there will be alot of this items sa greenhills at the price of 13k.

    upgradability is one thing that most mid-range smartphones lack (hey, spica is still stuck at 2.1 and some are even sold at 1.6) but at 6,500? You won’t hear me complaining about this one :)

  340. Avatar for Mark Mark says:

    What hour is the sale? At 50% off, that’s a freakin’ giveaway already! It’s a very early Christmas gift from LG to us Android lovers! :)

    Disappointing, no Flash despite Froyo. But with that price and that middling CPU, I guess it’s too much to ask.

  356. Avatar for Lyra Lyra says:

    So true, don’t drool over this phone and don’t ever try to skip enrollment for this one. Not worth it. You’d get a better one when you graduate.

    Anyway, AFAIK, Pacman’s fight is on November 13 (in the States). So that’s prolly November 14 for us. :)

  357. Avatar for Marcus Marcus says:

    can’t help myself but to comment, I missed reading the one who’ll not enroll para maka bili, anak wag mong sirain ang kinabukasan mo para lang sa cellphone, by the time you finish school, LG Optimus is history. Also Android 2.3/3.0 will come out later this year which is of course a better deal. Finally, laban nga pala ni Menny Pacman Pekyaw nun. Sana mataon sa oras ng mismong laban ni Manny haha!!!

  362. Avatar for Marcus Marcus says:

    haha, natatawa talaga ako while reading comments (lalo na sa mag te-tent sa Megamall, reminds me of Iphone 4 launched in US, literally naging campsite sa labas ng malls where available) Anyway indeed it’s the best offer up to date! Froyo 2.2 isn’t even available on HTC Desire. Now with Legend, even it has same processor, I believe mas mataas ang RAM ng LG cause Legend only has 384 MB.

    Hay, buti nalang wala ako sa Pinas, kundi siguradong asa December card statement ko ‘to. Dun sa mga wala pang budget but have card, why not do cash advance? The extra 300-500 fee is worth it after all is it not?! Goodluck guys!!! I hope everyone reading this will have a chance to get one!
