    Inspite of advice from many friends and relatives, i made the blunder of buying LG smart phone. Bought LG optimus P970( white) in Feb from flipcart.( flipcart service was excellent).
    This phone hangs at least once a day, if not more, from day 1 of purchase.

    Then in august 5 months after purchase the screen just freezed completely. Took it to the nearest service center in Udupi. The service center was a contrast to nokia. Absolutely no professionalism. After keeping it for one day, i was told that it has to be sent to Bangalore for repair. Got it back from Bangalore after a week and it looked like they had banged the phone on something to repair it. After some heated arguments they kept it for two more day and returned it in slighty better condition. Still did not look like the phone i gave them.

    The hanging continued and then again 2 days back the phone freezed( Kindly note that the phone is only 6 month old) Again took it to the service center and they tell me that they do not have a part and it will take one week for the part to arrive( pls note that this is not an obsolete model. It is still being sold. but they need one week to get the part in this day of mobile phones and overnight couriers).

    Called up their toll free number 18001809999 and their area sales representative( 09538883885) and got nothing but evasive replies. ( HOWEVER THEY WERE NOT RUDE LIKE THE SERVICE CENTER person)

    My questions-
    1. If a brand new 5 month phone( cost 18000 plus) freezes twice and needs 1 wk to repair each time, what will happen after the warranty period is over?
    2. why cant LG have a professional service center like NOKIA?

    I have been using mobile phones for the past 16 years. I have used nokia, samsung and even brands like micromax. But have never encountered anything remotely frustrating as this.
    Pls think twice before buying LG phones because i have heard this horror stories once too often.

    I took this phone a month back and had overheating issues with the phone I received. Flipkart promptly replaced the phone, but the replaced phone was no good. The phone overheats very often to the extent that it burns your ears while talking. The 1GHZ processor doesn’t perform to the expectations. The phone looks great in terms of specs, but not in real performance.
    I would strongly recommend not to buy this phone.

    First of all,let me tell you one thing clearly,am not 100% happy with this phone.because,like the other android mobiles,much worse is it’s battery,it’s discharging like a fuel meter of a machine in a petrol pump…very poor battery and another main defect is LG’s blunder package of applications.unlike Samsung,they have not included any basic soft wares(like task manager,my files) in this mobile and squeezed in some utter waste applications inside this.so finally i think for a 15000+ budget u will get better mobiles than this from Samsung and Sony if u search!

    sound quality is not good. I think my nokia 5233 had better sound. The display is good. I think there is no gpu in it as it is not able to play lot of HD games. even angry birds lags at times. i think galaxy s is better. And who said this phone is lag free. it does hang and restart at times 🙁 i always have the charger connected cos the battery drains …..
    finally if u guys want a phone that look good then go for this phone. but u dont get good video and sound quality…. LG needs to improve… 🙁

    this phone is great,I was also thinking of buying it,but suddenly lg optimus 2x price drops so now going for 2x.price is only 1000 high but u get a 8MP cam and dual core processor,so now its not worth buying black at 19k.I think price will go down for it too ,may be as low as 15k.

    This is my second LG phone. First one was LG Optimus One. I became LG fan since I bought Optimus One. Many of my friends are Samsung fan and when they saw LG Optimus black for the first time many of them said oh you bought an iPhone. 🙂

    Yes! This phone model is not new but if you are looking for good android phone around Rs.16,000 budget then you may want to go for Optimus black. If your budget is around Rs.10000 then my recommendation will be go for Optimus One.

    Why I should go for Optimus black when in market you have other options in the same price range with higher configuration?

    1. GPU and processor are heart and brain and this phone has right combination even after 2 years and with latest updates this phone rocks. Many of the latest models do not have right combinations.

    2.Most of the new models they are attracting customer by offering dual sim or higher mega pixel camera (but lens are poor quality or GPU) Some of them are offering powerful battery but fact is battery will not last long because of more utilization.

    3.Optimus black comes with 2 mega pixel front camera for Skype just rocks.

    4. 5 mega pixel camera results are much better than many 8 mega pixel phone model.

    5.Battery lasts longer than many other android phone even one with more powerful battery. If you are wondering how this is possible but it happens because of LG Nova display.

    Ok! now let me share one problem which I faced during roaming between different city and network. Please note that this issue is not related to model but I just thought of sharing.

    I observed whenever I am traveling from one city to another city and switching to airplane mode and switching off mode phone fails to detect roaming network. I have to restart my phone for multiple times. Though this is a small issue this can create bigger issue if you are expecting call from someone or you want to call some as soon as you reach airport. This was only time I thought about my good old Sony K-750 🙂

    If you check price of this phone is still higher than latest LG new Optimus Model. Have you ever seen Samsung selling any of their old model at higher price? 🙂

    After official android updates from LG Optimus black is awaken. I tell you this phone beats many of the new models including new LG Optimus dual Sim new model :-).

    Bottom line just go for Optimus Black. Old is Gold 🙂

    Its a great phone and the hd recording takes your breath away.The dlna features was mind blowing as you can send pictures to your dlna certified tv wirelessly and videos, music and so on also with your pc to another phone.
    Bad part is that when I created the contact folder all contacts inside the folder tunred into font of a dialer. Dont know why it happens, just hate it.

    I ordered my LG Optimus Black last Friday and received this Monday.. Was eagerly waiting to use the device… Excellent delivery services by flipkart. Excellent packaging to avoid any damage. The device has an awesome clear NOVA display. The device runs pretty smooth.. Too early to give an opinion about the battery backup. This is my first Android.. The best thing about the Black is the 3G video calling feature which you don’t get in any other device except in 30k range. Also the WiFi direct where you can transfer files directly between 2 WiFi devices. Got to explore a lot more about this sleek LG Android.. Camera quality is great and the sound is also loud enough. Would definitely give a tough competition to HTC and Samsungs’ in the same range. Thanks Flipkart for providing such a great deal…

    This phone is already old in the market now with an outdated operating system. LG has been promising to provide ICS upgrade but nothing happened so far. 512 mb RAM is decent but for some reason it is not enough for the phone. You will have to use a memory cleaner app to clear memory once in a while, especially if you like gaming. Sometimes the phone lags so badly and you may be forced to remove battery to restart but I am guessing that this problem is not there only on higher end Android phones and iPhones.

    Camera is very good with some inbuilt settings and filters. The display is good as well. The G button is not that very useful as it is not smooth.

    Final Verdict: If you are not a brand bimbo then buy Micromax phones, which comes with much better specs for 10k range.

  10. Rated 5 out of 5


    Just now got this beauty and i am shocked to see TECHTREE’s review on it. The three main issues tat were listed :
    1) call quality 2) video and audio quality 3) browser problems.
    HONESTLY these were rumours. Call quality is normal. Audio quality aint bad. May b the ones who call it bad use compressed mp3 files. I personally think n8’s audio = p970’s. OFC the browser slutters when there r too many flash files on.
    GAMING- i played shadowgun and samurai vengance hd. NO LAG. NEVER FORGET TO SWITCH TO GINGERBREAD BEFORE PLAYIN A HD GAME
    About ICE (4.0) update- ALL noobs out here, 4.0 is to b out in MAY 2012 for optimus black( lg news update).
    so finally OPTIMUS BLACK = BEAUTIFUL BEAST ( single core ofc :P)
