LG Optimus Black review: Black and bright

 

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...

9.2 mm slim touchscreen bar ; 4” NOVA display at 700 nits of brightness, 16M-color WVGA capacitive IPS LCD unit ; Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; Android OS v2.2 Froyo (upgradable to v2.3) with LG Home...

HD video clips come out with distorted aspect ratio ; Single core processor when most of the high-end has gone dual-core ; The blacks of the NOVA display are not deep enough to impress ; No dedicated camera key ; No Android 2.3 Gingerbread at launch ;...

The LG Optimus Black is not the brightest bulb in the LG Android portfolio. Fair enough, it has no problem with authority. It claims to have the brightest screen on a phone to date, and that’s a good enough selling point.

LG Optimus Black

 

If you asked us to design our ideal Android phone, it might well end up looking like LG's Optimus Black. The handset that was once known under the codename "B" features a clean, elegant and exceedingly thin exterior, which is garnished with a 4-inch...

Thin and light ; Great outdoor visibility ; Good camera performance

Consistently sluggish performance ; Underwhelming battery life ; Touchscreen isn't responsive enough

LG Electronics Optimus Black

 

The LG Optimus Black is a smartly designed Android phone that features a nice-looking display, a simple and clean user interface, and battery life that would make some far-more-expensive smartphones envious.

Unlocked GSM phone ; Elegant, no-nonsense design ; Easy on battery

No Gingerbread yet ; Download speed limit of 7.2 mbps

A no-nonsense phone for people who don't need a top-of-the-line device.

LG Optimus T (T-Mobile)

 

The LG Optimus T is a terrific entry-level Android phone with just enough power for most consumers.

Responsive screen and UI. Runs Android 2.2. Mobile hotspot capability. Long battery life.

Screen is a bit small. Screen, camera, and CPU are a generation behind the class leaders.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions The standard size 3.5mm headphone jack is always good for music lovers. The microSD card slot underneath the battery cover worked fine with my 16GB SanDisk card; T-Mobile throws in a 2GB card to get you started, and...

LG Optimus C (Cricket Wireless)

 

Cricket's monthly plan for the Optimus C costs $55 for unlimited voice, data, and texting, which is a pretty terrific value for the price.

Great set of features for the price. Runs Android 2.2. Inexpensive monthly plans

Screen is a bit cramped for typing

The LG Optimus C has a perfect balance of features, price, and functionality, making it the best choice for smartphone users on Cricket Wireless.

LG Optimus Black Review

 

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...
