Anonymous, 01 Dec 2011sure? btw wats the current software version available?mine is v10dLatest version is 2.2.2 V10f. You can just connect the mobile and update it using LG Mobile Update Tool. I will download some 250MB of OS from net and install the same on your mobile. Nothing geeky though!!! :)

hello mates,
I bought this before 2 days.
I cant evaluate now itself the performance and behavior of this mobile with just 2 days experience...
So far its nice.., need 1 month to tell more about the performance and behavior.
But I can say surely LG optimus black is much much better than Samsung galaxy mobiles in many ways..
By the way,
when GB upgrade comes for OB in India?
Any official news from LG?
Please share.

Hi everyone,

I have this phone for 2 weeks now and here's my feedback.

Display is very good even under direct sunlight.
It's fast and very responding.
Good signaling and WIFI!
The sound quality is good with the original earphone but will be better with an earphone like sony :)
Call quality is great!
Speaker volume is quite good.
Pictures taken with the camera 5 MP are great during the day, but quality is poorer for photos taken at night.
Good apps can be found on the android market or on isohunt.com.

Overall 9/10 Score :)

If you are thinking to buy this phone, go for it! You will not regret it! Trust me i've compared the OB with other phones such as Samsung Galaxy S1, Nokia 701 etc..and the LG Optimus Black P 970 was the winner :)

  • Whatever

Can someone please tell me if this phone is alright....because my mom says that nokia is better but i don't agree.....thanks.

Awesome phone ..!! Worth every rupee spent ..!!
I am the proud owner of LG Optimus Black & I'll say that after purchasing this gem of a smartphone, I have no regrets whatsoever.
- The 4" Nova Gorilla Glass display is perhaps the best feature.
- Great internet & gallery browsing experience.
- The Camera is above average & quite upto the mark (Could Do Better)
- The battery life is superb. I use mine for loooooooong phone calls, wi-fi & web browsing. It still lasts me more than a day & half. That's pretty impressive.
- The Gesture button is way too cool. Plus, you will have one of the best touch screen experience.
- Android ICS has also been announced for the LGOB. Thats totally awesome..!!
- Although I am still waiting for my Gingerbread update in India. When the hell is that gonna happen?

I would totally recommend this phone guys...!!

"Thanks for sharing your concern with us.
