    Pretty doggone good for a Tracfone-A Long Winded Review., December 6, 2012
    This review is from: LG 840G Prepaid Phone With Triple Minutes (Tracfone) (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    I have had several LG Tracfones in the past and they were always quality products. The LG840g is no exception. I got mine to replace a LG500g that I had for over a year. After one week, here are my impressions.

    The phone itself is about the size of an Ipod Touch, and similar in shape and appearance. It looks expensive. The “wake” button is recessed which makes it difficult to hit accidentally, and the volume buttons are on the side where they would be on an Ipod. The buttons on the front are capacitive touch, like the screen.

    It is not a smart phone and runs a java based proprietary operating system which allows the installation of .jar apps.

    Battery life depends on how you use it. I left the WiFi running and the battery drained to one bar in 24 hours. It didn’t shut down, but it was definitely low. Only using the WiFi occasionally, the battery is still on full bars after 3 days. I haven’t run the phone all the way down yet, but the advertised standby is over 10 days.

    The interface is easy to use, and the touch-screen is capacitive, which makes it easy to use. It feels a lot like an Ipod/Iphone. I don’t like the pale blue backgrounds for the menus, but there’s no way I know of to change it.

    It wouldn’t connect to my home WiFi, a Belkin router, unless I set a static IP address. If you’re having problems connecting, choose “Edit Network” and under IP/DNS Setting, choose “Static”. You will then have to configure the settings specific to your router using your keen sense of Google Fu.

    One problem is the keyboard. You only get a QWERTY in certain situations, such as entering web addresses, texting, etc. If you go to a website that has input text boxes, such as webmail, you’ll be sorely disappointed. One solutiom is to download the free Opera browser that comes with its own keyboard, which always lets you enter text with QWERTY. It’s a little sluggish, but usable. It beats the default browser by far.

    When you do download apps for this, you’ll notice that third party apps will display a navigation keyboard at the bottom. If you use a JAD file to install, open it in Notepad and insert the following at the end:

    Navi-Key-Hidden: true
    Nokia-MIDlet-On-Screen-Keypad: no
    MIDlet-ScreenMode: ROTATE
    MIDlet-Landscape-Support: true
    LGE-MIDlet-Width: 240
    LGE-MIDlet-Height: 400
    LGE-MIDlet-On-Screen-Keypad: no
    LGE-MIDlet-Display-Mode: both

    This will kill the navigation keyboard, which is unnecessary with a touch screen and just takes extra space anyway.

    Doing this, I was able to run Opera Mini, Google Maps, UC Browser, and eBuddy in full screen mode. Also, with this phone being similar to the LG T375 Cookie Smart, some apps made for it will run on the LG 840G. Again, using your Google Fu will help you find apps. Download them to the SD card in your phone, find them in the menus and tap on them to run.

    Video conversion is easy with Mobile Media Converter, a free video converter from Miksoft that runs on Mac, Linux, or Windows.

    Install it and drag and drop your video(s) into the window. From the “Conversion To:” menu, choose “Iphone/Ipod with Subs” and hit the button marked “Advanced” .

    The “More Configuration” menu will come up. On both “Audio Bitrate” and “Video Bitrate”, the lower the number, the less quality, but smaller the file. Higher numbers will be better quality but take up more space. Video FPS (frames per second) should be set to your preferred quality…a smaller number is more “jittery” but a smaller file, and a larger number is smoother but takes more space. If you’re encoding a 4:3 (square) video, make sure “Video Size” is checked and enter “320:240″ in the space beside it. If you’re encoding a 16:9 (rectangular) video, make sure “Video Size” is checked and enter “320:200″ in the space beside it. Audio Frequency: higher is better quality and larger file, lower is lesser quality and smaller file. If you’re not using headphones, you can also choose to only have one mono channel instead of a stereo channel, which will also save space.

    This phone charges differently for data than other TracFones I’ve had previously. The old ones used to charge for time, regardless of data transfer. Meaning, 1 minute of web brwosing was .5 units. This made it dangerous to leave the browser on for long periods of time! Then new one seems to charge for transfer, but I can’t figure out the ratio exactly. Regardless, I can load a page and actually have time to READ it. The pages I visit are mostly text, so this works out better for me. There are differing theories on what the actual cost per KB are, and TracFone’s website is no help. You’ll have to blow a few minutes and do experimentation to figure out what your frequently visited sites cost to browse.

    The email program is simple, but works slickly enough with Gmail…

    If you’re not me and you don’t require a super fancy phone with tons of gadgets, widgets and apps and you’re just looking for a phone that will get the job done, then look no further than this phone. It’s a very good phone and it gets great reception no matter where I’m at, inside or outside. This little baby has 5 bars of strong signal everywhere I use it. And while it’s not one of the “I just gotta have it” phones, you won’t be disappointed by it’s functionality. It has everything you need from a pretty decent camera with a zoom function, Wi-Fi, 3G, Games, and a Music Player. This phone comes with a 2GB mini storage card but it has the capability to use up to a 32gb card. The storage card is used for your music. You download your tunes to the card, put the card into the phone and viola, you have music on your phone. Not hard to do. It’s a good deal at a great price.

    If you are wanting a REAL smartphone phone to connect to the internet, surf the web, check e-mails etc. this phone is not for you. If you are wanting a phone that is WAY better than the flip phone you previously had through Tracfone (plus triple minutes for life!) than it is well worth the $45.00. I’ve been a tracfone guy for 10 years. I have a land line, I have a computer at work & home and a laptop I can travel with. I don’t talk on the phone or text that much (200 minutes a month if I’m lucky). I just couldn’t justify a REAL smart phone like an Iphone or droid and a $50+ a month bill when i’m paying less than $15 now. I mainly got this phone because frankly I was embarrased to be seen talking on my flip phone and texting was a joke without a keyboard. I HAVE connected to the internet but you have to jump through so many hoops it really isn’t worth it and that’s with the Wi Fi. I wouldn’t even waste my minutes trying to get on the internet with 3G. I loaded my Mp3′s on it, can take pictures and video and it LOOKS like everybody elses smartphone. It doesn’t have some features that I would have liked like voice activated dialing and some other things. The real thing I don’t like is the fact that when a call comes in it becomes “unlocked”, you don’t have to finger slide it to unlock it like my wife’s smartphone so it is easy to accidently either answer it without wanting to or reject call just by reaching into your pocket to grab it. I could have switched to Virgin and paid $35.00 a month and $400 for an Iphone but for my line of work where I am in the office most of the time and next to my computer it really doesn’t make sense at this time, maybe someday, but for now I’m happy with my $45.00 aquisition.
