    Re: RealTime LG DARE REVIEW

    I've had my Dare for about two weeks and I'm still trying to decide whether to keep it or trade for something else. I like the Dare but I am really struggling to be comfortable with it's touch screen. I'm constantly opening things by accident. Kinda frustrating. Anyone share the same experience? Does it get any easier? Thanks.

    wow, I had no idea the video quality would be so good on the Dare.

    I just got the LG vu...I'm thinking about whether it would be better to get a dare but I don't think it's offered through Rogers in Canada

    Make sure you calibrate the screen the same way you use it... in other words.. don't use a stylet or the point of your finger to calibrate it if in real life you use use the corner of your thumb as I do when I use one hand.

    Other than it hesitating ever so slightly when I'm in a rush.. I have had no problems except the regular stuff when on the web.... where you have to hit a link several times to get it to finally go.

    I have the same problem with my LG vu. Scrolling on a phone is foreign to me so I'm still trying to get used to it. I just got the phone yesterday.

    A problem I've had is that when you scroll through the contact list and let go, the scrolling continues and you have to be cautious about how you release. I accidentally deleted a contact today.

    I'm not sure if it's a callibration issue since I've already re-callibrated. I think it's a matter of getting accustomed to the way the touch screen responds and adjusting the way you grab and scroll.

    Re: RealTime LG DARE REVIEW

    This week i put to the test the DARE video camera, i took many video clips outdoors in beautiful sunshine weather. Trying to read the screen on the DARE in sun light is a bit of a task and a Hobson's choice. Last year i used a video camera to shoot the event so this year with the purchase of my DARE and its excellent video camera, i wanted to put it to the test of real action video shooting.

    See http://cellphoneforums.net/chit-chat...ell-phone.html

    For shooting a video i would suggest a real video camera, but as a hobson's choice it doesn't get any better than having the DARE cell phone video camera feature at hand. You should be very happy with the results of capturing a event/moment on video when all you have is your DARE cell phone.

    Re: RealTime LG DARE REVIEW

    I wish it was brighter in sunlight too....

    As far as scrolling in the contacts.... Once I get it going... I can stop it on a dime simply by touching the screen once quickly.

    I agree, the camera may not be as good as the 8mp wonders they have out now, but for a phone its as good as it gets.

    One gripe I always had with my other phone "lg8700 2mp camera" was as good as the screen was, it still was not good enough to accurately judge whether a picture was worthy of keeping or tossing.

    I took many pictures that I thought looked terrible, but when I transferred them to my computer, they looked quite well... and a little doctoring up in photoshop to add contrast and brightness usually fixed them.

    But the Dare looks great... in fact it looks so good, it leaves you wanting more.... more as in bigger screen!.... Even though the screen is much bigger than my 8700 was, I still sometimes get so lost in it, I wish it was bigger, .... but then it wouldn't be so small and tidy.

    One feature I believe they need to improve is the editing feature that adds contrast and brightness to an existing picture. Seems it moves "too" far at a time.. it needs to be more precise to make it really useful... more than one notch of adjustment and your instantly dealing with a terribly over-adjusted picture.

    I also wish it had a color adjustment to doctor up skin tones..... I guess this is a wish list of sorts to spice up this first generation marvel.

    Re: RealTime LG DARE REVIEW

    As a follow up to my statement of sun glare being a problem viewing the DARE screen in sunlight, i went and purchased an anti-glare screen protector. i applied it today and it does a good job against sun-glare, its called " clear touch " by Boxwave. The screen protector is washable and reusable, protects against scratches, improves handwriting recognition, and fingerprint free!

    Re: RealTime LG DARE REVIEW

    Thanks for the info... do you feel it works against you otherwise as far as richness of colors etc?

    And can you actually see better in the sunlight?..... I know you say the glare is removed, but I can imagine color and brightness being lost through the screen offsetting the glare being removed.

    Am I hearing you recommend this for outdoor viewing as well as indoor?

    Re: RealTime LG DARE REVIEW

    The screen acts like a mirror in sunlight, the anti-glare protector does allow that, the reflection/mirror affect is taken away, which makes visibility much better.

    I definitely recommend it for outdoor use, and the screen protector does not take away the actual view of the image your seeing, but because of daylight itself, the color will not be rich. Pictures of my DARE with the screen protector and my daughter's voyager without it are posted @my blog... see link below

    Re: RealTime LG DARE REVIEW

    As my DARE review continues over time i discover and re-discover some hints and features. I recently paired the jawbone 2 earpiece, it did eliminate noise, but i found it to be problematic with voice commands and very frustrating trying to solve the problem.

    I went and ordered another earpiece from my favorite company, JABRA. I had the JABRA JX10 series 2 which work great, but i was looking for one of these new noise eliminating products since most earpieces are worthless in a noisy surrounding.

    I purchase the JABRA BT530, Jabra's newest earpiece with noise blackout by JABRA for my DARE, pairing and setting up the 530 with the DARE was painless. The hardest part was applying the desire rubber piece which goes into the ear. I quickly trained my voice use the commands for words and number training on my DARE. The BT 530 feels comfortable in the ear and not to large in size.


    Calling my friend to test the earpiece with background noise of my TV (loud) i was able to hold a conversation, not satisfied, i did another test calling my house phone letting the answering machine pick up. in a different room with my TV and BOSE radio on i began to leave a message walking to and from the TV and RADIO and left a lengthly message. I then listen to the message, although there was background noise, the message on the machine was distinct and pronounced.

    I've heard problems with the DARE using bluetooth earpieces concerning echo's, breaking up, recognizing voice commands, but so far all is well.

    Jabra BT530 - the new generation of noise cancellation


    I purchase the JABRA BT 530 from Hello Direct on line @ Jabra BT530 Bluetooth Cell Phone Headset, Wireless/Bluetooth, Cell Phone Headsets, Headsets, Hello Direct
