  • Excerpt: Dressed in a sleek black shell LG’s Optimus Black exudes poise and quite a bit of sex appeal. Taking its cue from big brother, the Optimus 2X , this lower end variant just could do better. After putting it to the test, here’s what I have to say. Form Factor It’s a good looking piece of hardware no doubt, but far from sturdy.

LG Optimus Black Review

thinkdigit.com
30 June 2011
  • Summary: The LG Optimus Black offers good system performance, solid build, a sleek form factor and a very good IPS LCD display. However, the bad battery life, outdated Froyo OS, camera shutter lag and precision problem with on-screen keypad in portrait mode show that the phone does have its share of issues. The Samsung Galaxy S feels faster in terms of raw performance, and you can check out the Samsung Nexus S, and get the latest Android 2.3 version with it.
  • Pros: Solid build & sleek form factor, Good display that works even in bright sunlight, Steady performance, with no slow downs, Gesture key is an added feature
  • Cons: Camera has lot of shutter lag, Battery barely lasts a day, On screen keypad, in portrait mode, isn�t very precise, Still stuck on Android 2.2

  • Summary: It might not break the mould, but the LG Optimus Black is a decent all-round Android phone. It's speedy, and the bright screen is a definite plus, if not quite the revolution in outside viewing LG promised. It's let down by a slightly plasticky case, however.
  • Cons: Plasticky casing; Not the latest version of Android; Not as good in direct sunlight as advertised.

LG Optimus Black review

  • Excerpt: The Optimus Black is certainly slim, and has an attractive piano black finish on its front – but its Teflon back casing is a bit of a letdown The display is really responsive and while we had some issues with the screen lock, we like the addition of gesture controls. We found the menus a tad tricky Under the hood is a 1GHz chip to power the five-megapixel snapper, A-GPS, and Wi-Fi, while LG has used its NOVA technology for the four-inch touch display That 1GHz chip was...

LG Optimus Black review

Pocket Lint
24 May 2011
  • Excerpt: 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 - leaving the Optimus Black to slot into a sub high-end position.
  • Pros: Great screen, interesting design, LG's light touch on Android still delivers the core Android experience
  • Cons: HD video capture arrives at the wrong ratio, Gestures seem rather pointless, battery life is poor, video format support is poor, DLNA support incomplete

Test : LG Optimus Black

test-mobile.fr
28 November 2011
  • Summary: LG avait dévoilé l’Optimus Black lors du CES 2011, nous avons ensuite pu prendre en main l’appareil lors du MWC. Le point mis en avant lors de l’annonce était la luminosité de son écran 4″ IPS, « 700 nits ». Mais au delà de son écran très lumineux, le Black c’est aussi un appareil photo très correct, une surcouche bien pensée pour, au final, un prix raisonnable.
  • Pros: Bonne qualité photo et vidéo, Prix moyen pour un smartphone tout de même performant
  • Cons: Bonne qualité photo et vidéo, Prix moyen pour un smartphone tout de même performant

LG Optimus Black P970

  • Summary: Schwarz, schlicht, langweilig: Sorry LG, aber die Optik des Smartphones macht zwar seinen Namen alle Ehre, doch aufregend ist etwas anderes. Nennen wir das Design einmal „vornehm schlicht“. Alles andere als schlicht ist hingegen der TFT-Touchscreen, den die Hersteller als Nova-Display bezeichnen. Diese Technologie soll vor allem durch exzellente Helligkeitswerte beeindrucken.
  • Pros: Flach & leicht, Leuchtintensives Display, Guter Allrounder
  • Cons: Reiner Plastikbomber, Schlichtes Design, Mäßiger Sound

  • Conclusion: LG Optimus Black är en trevlig mobil som sticker ut med en utomordentligt ljusstark skärm till ett överkomligt pris. Men vill du ha senaste Android från start eller värstingprestanda bör du leta vidare.
  • Pros: Ljusstark skärm
  • Cons: Något plastig
