LG Optimus Black review

 

With it's 4-inch NOVA screen is this LG's best Android phone yet?

LG Optimus Black review

 

The LG Optimus Black offers up the sort of specs that where considered high-end in 2010. The advent of dual core devices, higher resolution displays and cameras has created a superphone category - occupied by the sibling LG Optimus 2X for example -...

Great screen, interesting design, LG's light touch on Android still delivers the core Android experience

HD video capture arrives at the wrong ratio, Gestures seem rather pointless, battery life is poor, video format support is poor, DLNA support incomplete

The LG Optimus Black is something of a mixed bag. Eye-catching design and a great screen are paired with a phone that isn’t a great performer on the multimedia front. For the most part we like LG’s light touch with Android: it still leaves you with...

LG Optimus Black review

 

Super thin, feather-light - but can it rival the new dual-core brigade?

NOVA display ; 4-inch screen ; Thin and lightweight chassis ; Quick to navigate ; 2MP front-facing camera

Gesture UI is fun but mainly pointless ; Not latest software ; Casing is a little roughly hewn ; Disappointing video recording capability ; Occasional microSD card problems

Sitting alongside the LG Optimus 2X, the LG Optimus Black is a top-end smartphone, slipping in at just over £400, attempting to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S2 and Apple iPhone 4 for the smartphone crown, but with considerably fewer features and...

LG Optimus Black P970 review

 

About six months back, I was suffering from a serious case of Android fatigue. There were almost a dozen mid-range Android phones waiting in the wings to be reviewed and there was virtually nothing to separate them from each other. Not that these...

If it wasn’t for the small issues that bug its UI and touchscreen response, the LG Optimus Black would have scored a lot higher. However, in spite of all its weaknesses I can say with some certainly that the P970 is one of the best Android smartphone...

LG Optimus Black review

 

LG's Optimus Black was launched with much less fanfare than the company's flagship LG Optimus 2X or fancy LG Optimus 3D, but it's an Android 2.2 handset with a single-core 1GHz processor that's lighter than the Samsung Galaxy S2. It's not quite as...

A gorgeous, bright screen, innovative gesture control and light weight make the Optimus Black very tempting, especially if you can get it on a £20-per-month contract

LG released the Optimus Me rather quietly earlier this year. It's a mid-range phone in the same vein as the Vodafone Smart and HTC Wildfire, running Android. Can this follow on from the success of the…

LG Optimus Black review

 

The LG Optimus Black is dependable and easy to use, despite that fact that its hardware and features are far from top-of-the-line among Android phones.

The LG Optimus Black is a compact, nicely designed, no-nonsense Android phone that might work well for users who don't need a top-of-the-line model or who would rather not buy their phone from a wireless carrier. LG announced the Optimus Black at the...
