  • LG Optimus Black review: Black and bright
    GSMArena team
    12 May 2011 | gsmarena

    It’s not a Black Label phone but could’ve honored the designer series. It’s called Black but bathes in light. What is the LG Optimus Black? To begin with, it’s solid build and pure elegance. With Android on board, smartphone meets fashion phone in a super slim package. LG Optimus Black official photos The Optimus Black is the first phone we’ve tested that uses the NOVA display technology. Special enough to warrant a dedicated article. Y...

    The LG Optimus Black is the latest offering from LG Electronics, bringing a stylish form factor, the new "Nova" display technology, and some unique features on top of Android 2.2.  If you`re looking for the latest dual-core gigabyte of RAM monster phone, you`re looking in the wrong place, but not all of us are looking for that.  One quick inspection of the phone will tell you -- LG wasn`t trying to win a specificatio...

    The LG Optimus Black captured our attention right out of the box with its thin waistline measuring a mere 9.2 millimeters making it officially one of the thinnest Android devices we have ever come across. Furthermore, the beautiful 4-inch NOVA display......

  • Super thin, feather-light - but can it rival the new dual-core brigade?
    Laura Tosney
    27 May 2011 | techradar

    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 less processing power than its LG stablemate. First things first – the LG Optimus Black is light. Weighing a featherweight 109g, it even reaches a skinny 6mm side edge curvature, and 9.2mm ...

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

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

    Verdict: A brilliant display screen on this Android 2.2-powered smartphone helps it to rival Apple`s iPhone 4...

  • LG Optimus Black Review u2013 NOVA Display Is Pure Awesomeness
    Cosmin Vasile
    | softpedia

    The first smartphone to embed LG`s innovative NOVA technology for mobile displays, the Optimus Black breathes pure elegance and arouses Android fans` interest through a minimalist look and powerful enough hardware.Built around the large mobile display,......

    Pros: Obviously, the strong point of the phone is the NOVA display, along with the elegant look. However, this is not everything that the phone can offer. I would also like to mention the LG Home launcher 2.0 and Gesture UI 2.0 that adds a personal touch to...

    Cons: The most disappointing aspect of the phone is by far the audio quality. In addition, the mediocre camera and the out-dated operating system may also be among the negatives.

    Jitendra Singh Bahelia
    27 Jul 2011

    Best Features: Nova Display

    Pros: Nova Display,02 MP FF camera

    Cons: none

    Overall: This is best 01 GHtz, front facing camera, 3G phone around the market with advantages of froyo(later gingerbread).Its price is also very competitive & even can be considered over the Samsung Galaxy S i9000.

    Best Features: Big screen, OS 2.2 (froyo)

    Pros: Big screen, Android OS

    Cons: Pricing

    Overall: I feel that this phone should b priced at 11,000 to 12,000 RS which will turn the buyer attention from Samsung galaxy 3 as most of the people prefer galaxy 3 bcause of its feature & reasonable pricing.
