LG Optimus Black P970 (Black Titan) Price: Rs.14559

Key Features

  • Android v2.2 (Froyo) OS
  • 4-inch LCD Touchscreen
  • 5 MP Primary Camera
  • 2 MP Secondary Camera
  • 1 GHz Cortex-A8 Processor
  • HD Recording
  • Expandable Storage Capacity of 32 GB
The LG Optimus Black is a smartphone running Android 2.2 Froyo OS with a WVGA display. The Optimus Black P970 is powered by a 1 GHz Cortex-A8 processor with a PowerVR SGX530 GPU for handling graphic intensive apps.

The LG Optimus Black features a Nova IPS Display which LG claims it to be the best ever display they have fitted on a smartphone. The screen packs the same 800 x 480 pixels as that on the LG Optimus 2X, albeit with enhanced brightness, richer contrast ratios and improved sunlight legibility. The 5 megapixel camera on the Optimus P970 is complimented by a LED flash and can record 720p HD video. There is a front facing 2 megapixel camera for video calls.

The phone features LG's Optimus 2.0 UI and brings new features like missed calls or new message alerts on your lockscreen. The intelligent lockscreen also takes you to the relevant section as soon as you unlock the screen. Apart from that, the LG Black packs the usual Froyo 2.2 goodies like flash supported browser, Wi-Fi tethering support and wireless control from the notification bar.


The Optimus Black wears a sleek, minimalistic chassis and conveys a sense of understated sophistication with its continuous lines. Weighing a frugal 109 g and measuring 9.2 mm in thickness, the Optimus Black is one of the slimmest and most portable mid-high end Android phones in the market. The phone comes with a accelerometer for auto UI orientation, a proximity sensor for auto turn-off and a ambient light sensor for auto brightness adjust.

LG has introduced a G button in the Optimus Black P970, once pressed, it allows you to control the phone with various preset motion gestures. The button utilizes the handset's accelerometer to understand the gestures and allows various functions like panning around a web page, changing homescreens or accepting calls without unlocking the screen.

Battery and Storage

LG has slimmed down the 1500 mAh battery to fit it into the thin chassis of the Optimus Black. The Lithium Ion cell gives 16 hrs of talk time and 455 hrs of standby. The P970 comes with 1 GB of internal memory and supports up to 32 GB microSD cards.

Connectivity and Features

The Optimus Black can connect to the Internet via 3G, Wi-Fi and GPRS networks. The phone is preloaded with Android Webkit browser with pinch-to-zoom and kinetic scrolling support. LG has preloaded the Optimus Black with custom versions of Facebook and Twitter apps, with contact integration and sharing support. The SmartShare app detects songs/videos in your computer and offers to play it on your TV via DLNA connectivity. The media player on the Optimus Black supports Dolby Mobile effect which gives a discernible acoustic improvement when you connect your headphones.

The Wi-Fi Direct feature on the LG Optimus Black P970 facilitates quick and easy wireless transfers between compatible devices. The best part about the technology is that it does not require a wireless access point (Router) and works similar to Bluetooth transfers. The Optimus Black features A-GPS connectivity with Digital Compass and syncs with Google Maps. Other features in the P970 include Document Viewer, Push Mail support, Voice commands and Organizer.

smooth as ice... and melts eyes as fast!

after an extensive research and comparison of various androids, win7s and bbs, zeroed in on this and got it delivered three weeks back, it has not disappointed.

- screen brightness - indoors 0% is sufficient and 40% is gorgeous! outdoors under the brightest of chennai suns 100% lets you watch videos without glare and loss of contrast and read the smallest of fonts.

- camera - so so, but for this price, it is justified, front facing is quite good though

- battery - more than 20 hours on full charge with 40% brightness and wi-fi whereas about 14 hours with gps, 3g and some gaming

- design - thinnest and lightest mobile one would come across and also every bit as sleek

- ergonomics - feels good in the hand and no issues while making calls but one problem though, it is so thin that one has to be careful picking it off a surface for chances are it might slip through!

- user interface - good and as intuitive as the best androids out there

- lag - haven't experienced any except an instance where i was trying to play nfs with a live wallpaper, but without that, the game was just fine with decent frame rates

- build - although of plastic, feels solid in the hands and surely as premium as plastic builds can be

- verdict - better than galaxy s, xperia arc, htc incredible s and many others of its league wrt design & performance) and would definitely not be out of place in the league of dual core androids

i think with this configuration and design and especially at this price, it's a definite steal but would go down unnoticed in the market maybe because it is an lg

Third rate service and phone

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.

overheating and very slow

I took this phone a month back and had overheating issues with the phone I received. Flipkart was kind enough to replace 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.

For 20k budget, best phone!

For a 20k around android phone, we have several candidates namely : Samsung Galaxy S/SL, Optimus Black, Nexus S, Xperia x10, HTC Desire HD/S/Z, Acer Liquid, Motorolla Milestone etc.

Out of this, we can drop down some of them very easily due to huge disadvantages. Such as :

-Milestone: very outdated mobile. Low CPU.
-Acer Liquid: poor support both for physical accessories and online guidance, 800Mhz CPU, not enough.
-Xperia x10: not enough RAM, without at least 512 RAM, its 1Ghz CPU is not a good point.

Now, for HTC, there might be some true fans of HTC sense UI, but its battery life is no that good, and you compromise several features compared to Optimus Black (listed below).

And for galaxy S/SL, lack of camera flash is the biggest and the only disadvatage, otherwise the phone is perfect in rest aspect.

Now lastly the Nexus S, which beats Optimus Black in having better chipset and a secure update feature. But hey, if you are not a that much a guy who wants his/her mobile to play every HD game or to have every new update; then Optimus Black surely plays most of the HD games, and android 2.2.2 ready for most features. (2.3 officially announced, releasing in sept.)

Lastly, the specific features of Optimus Black, which no any other phone in the world (whatever high-priced) has in it, which also of course beats all the rest of the phones around 20k budget :

1) The brightest display : especially india, which is a country having a horrible summer, a bright display that can be easily (in fact, brilliantly) viewed outdoor is surely a practical reason to consider.

2) Very thin and light weight. Very handy, really. (when OB was launched, it was world's slimmest smartphone, still is except Galaxy S2).

3) G-button. Well, not a feature that great technologically, but if you show this feature opening your web browser to someone, it will blow that person's mind off for sure! A great show off ! (Also unique to Optimus Black, since no other mobile has it!)

4) wi-fi direct. You can transfer files via wi-fi, very fastly.

So, on a conclusion base, Optimus Black has :

-1 Ghz processor with dedicated GPU, 512MB RAM; enough for all multitasking.

-2GB internal memory to keep all important applications in phone. And micro-SD slot, which Nexus S is missing is really helpful when you swap SD cards with friends.

-A camera with LED flash, which Galaxy S/SL is missing. A front cam of 2MP, really great.

- 4" bright display with 800*480 resolution. Perfectly large, just next to being a tablet.

- A good music output in handsfree; Dolby Mobile. And DivxHD for video...making its multimedia features excellent. It also supports Adobe Flash 10.3, making .flv file play via third party player from market.

- And all the rest usual things you expect from a smartphone; like 3g, wifi, Bluetooth, GPS etc. etc.

So friends, this mobile is a real deal. I 'm using it for more than a week, and completely satisfied.
