LG Optimus P500 Android phone debuts at Php6.5k

LG quietly makes a big splash with their LG Optimus P500 Android 2.2 smartphone as it sets to land with a 50% discount off its Php12,990 price tag. Yup, this Froyo smartphone will go for Php6,495 once it becomes available on Nov. 13.

With this move, LG will have the cheapest Android phone around. But only for a limited time only that is. On Nov. 13 at LG concept stores in SM Megamall, SM North EDSA Annex, SM Cebu, and Gaisano Davao, there will be a 1-hour window, from 2PM to 3PM where you can get the LG Optimus P500 at the discounted price.

This is not LG’s first Android phone in the market. They released their Optimus One GT450 back in July but that runs on the outdated Android 1.6 (Donut) and has a resistive touchscreen making this new Optimus One P500 a delight to Android fans.

LG Optimus One P500 Specs:

  • 3.2″ capacitive display @ 320×480 pixels
  • Android 2.2 (Froyo) OS
  • 600 MHz Processor
  • 512MB RAM
  • 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
  • SRP: Php12,990

    I can’t wAit:) I hope everyone in line gets to buy it even if the one hour time is up:) I’ll be saving up now.. Haha.. Thanks for the info

  2. will it also be available at LG Concept Store in SM City Bacolod??

  3. What the, i just bought this phone yesterday! bkit sla ganun lugi kming unang bumili

  4. @Calvin i’m enjoying it. Pero inis pa rin sa sale nila. tinanong ko pa yung sales lady kung may sale sila, wala pa daw advise

  5. Shoot! I thought its 500 pesos only :P

  6. Hindi sana i limit ang number of units per person.

  7. hope to make this promo until december, one hour is not enough! how about us? LG hello!!!

  8. Just confirmed with LG Philippines, it’s limited to 1 unit per customer, and only the first 50 customers per branch get to participate in the “One Day, One Hour, One Chance” LG Optimus One promo.

  9. ilan lang ang pwedeng bumili.? may limit ba?

  10. kamusta naman ang sale sa sm nort at megamall?? Any updates??

    • sabog daw yung sale. wala raw kwenta.

      • what do you mean walang kwenta (yung phone or yung sistema ng sale)? 11am kami nakarating ANG HABA na ng pila. I don’t think they have enough phones for all those people. Dapat siguro e dineclare na agad kung ilan lang makaka-avail.

        yung HTC nag P6450 sale rin bigla, kaso lousy yung phone (HTC Smart), so after pagkaguluhan sandali e nag alisan rin mga tao.

  11. Balita naman sa nakabili na, ok ba yung phone? I still plan on getting one this week.

    • bili ka na lang ng SE X8, cheaper, better looking and has better resolution. Mas maaasahan mo pa support, unlike LG na linoko mga tao sa sale nila. how do you expect them to support you if you have a problem when during their flopped marketing stiff, they were hiding from their irate customers..

  12. hndi pala nla kayang iaccomodate mga tao.. Mali diskarte nla.. Dpat, libong unit reserba nla.. E d kumita cla dpat..

  13. i used to love lg phones but after the promotion of this phone with 50% off i decided to hate it. the promotion is a SCAM

      Hello! I was one of the lucky (or should I say eager) ones who were able to get the LG Optimus One sale sa Megamall, and I would say na I’m really lovin’ everything about it! I’m searching for good apps na mauutilize yung full capabilities nya. And to those who were saying na it was “staged” by LG and the “actors” are those who were first in line, you got that VERY wrong. I was there @ 7:30am, waiting in line, not to mention I came straight from work. :D

    • Agree, it was a total SCAM. Using people for their media mileage, I bought a SE Xperia X8 instead and compared it with Optimus, it’s soooo much better, style, resolution and the brand.hehehe..LG Phil…losers..

  14. Sana ginawa nalang na libre to..hehehe..

  15. wala na ba to? T,T hindi ko manlang nabasa ito bago mag november 13… kelangan ko n ng bagong phone eh huhuhuhu… wawa naman ako…

  16. ask lng po bkit ang dling mag lowbat ng phon?khit hndi mo gnagmit uminit?

    • baka naka-on yung wifi or data sync. sa background nagpupush ng data kahit naka-sleep yung phone. malalaman mo kung on or off sa power control widget.

  17. Hi All,

    I have bought this P500 handset for more than 15 days. and found to be good as showpiece as it has lots of software problem.

    This handset doesn’t support mail exchange. also most of the applications doesn’t work as there is technical glitch of Gmail .

    This is really a piece of junk.

    LG guys are now asking for loading extra software patch.

    Can you believe this from LG.

    when there will be another 50% off with these phone?

  19. hi sir gud pm tanong ko lang po kung ano ang the best sa dalawa lg optimus one p500 or samsung galaxy 551? in terms of browsing/games/apps…1st smart phone ko po ito..tnx in advance.

    • mas ok sa akin yung 551 in terms of specs. although mas mataas res ng P500, mas maraming colors ang display ng 551, mas mabilis din ng konti.
