LG Optimus P970 2GB Black - Expert Reviews


LG Optimus Black is a well built, elegant looking device which have useful features and successfully captures anyone's attention in its first look. To its credit the device is 9.2mm thick which is really slim and weigh 109 grams. This is one way to look at it but for some the look may be far too simple and vanilla. As far as the complete dimensions of the device is concerned, they are 122mm x 64mm x 9.2mm. It big 4 inch screen is well sought after with the IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen which gives a formidable resolution of 233ppi. Before we go on to the negative aspects of the device, let us look at the positive one's first. Wi-Fi is pretty quick with Wi-Fi direct and Wi-Fi hot spot to back it up. The bluetooth is version 2.1 and not 4.0 which means there would be a slight compromise in terms of speed when it comes to exchanging data with other devices, but seeing the reasonable price of LG Optimus Black this can also be neglected. RAM is not the worst with 512MB although other high profile gadgets have been equipped with at least 1GB. A microSD card slot for memory expansion is provided too. The internal storage capacity is good with 2GB although only half of it is available for the user's use.

Camera is of 5 megapixels strength but this is the department where the real drawback of the device comes in to play as there is no dedicated camera key which may not have been a issue earlier but since other high end devices offering the same, it does give them the edge. The High definition videos that can be shot with the device have distorted aspect ratios. There is a music player with the device but the sound quality is really not anywhere near the optimum mark. The device is available in the color of Black, Pink, Silver, White, Brown and runs on the standard lithium ion battery of 1,500 mAh which is okay as another 500 mAh would placed it at par with other smartphones. Another baffling attribute about the device is its processor as all the other devices of this price range are backed by a dual core processor but LG Optimus Black has a single core processor in its hardware armory. The bright side though is that the operating system is still of 1GHz strength. In terms of software too, the device comes loaded with the obsolete version of Android, that is, version 2.2 Froyo, but later on it receives Android version 2.3 Gingerbread upgradation and now it is upgradable to Android version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Operating system and UI

LG Optimus Black has a 4 inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen that gives a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and gives 16 million colors along with a healthy pixel density of 233ppi.  On top of the Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, LG Optimus Black has dual user interfaces – Optimus user interface version 2.0 and Gesture user interface version 2.0. The screen can be interacted with through the multi touch technology and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass technology that provides protection from unwanted scratches.

Other Features

Multimedia features are offered in heaps by LG Optimus Black like the music player and the video player but the quality of the former in terms of the sound quality is not up to the mark. Music can be heard through the loudspeakers or through the earphones that can be attached to the device with the help of a 3.5mm jack. There is also the radio FM player that gives the user access to all the popular radio stations. The music player is compatible with the formats - MP3, WAV, WMA and eAAC player while the video player supports MP4, DivX, Xvid, H.264, H.263 and WMV player.


LG Optimus Black has a 5 megapixels camera that makes sure that the user can click pictures at a resolution of 2592 by 1944 pixels. The autofocus facility gives precision and accuracy even when the hands of the user are shaking and trembling while the Geo-tagging facility allows the user to tag his or her friends and family members. The camera comes backed by the facilities of auto focus, LED flash, Geo-tagging, face and smile detection. The results produced by the device are pretty good but as compared to its competitors like Sony and Apple, the device somewhere falls behind. The 2 megapixels secondary camera can be used for web calling, self portraits and video chats.


G Optimus Black has the Wi-Fi facility with which the user can access the web and visit all the desired web sites including Facebook and Twitter. Wi-Fi Hot spot allows the user to make the device as a hub for other device to connect with for the Internet connection. Mails can also be checked along with downloading data including songs, games, images and videos.


LG Optimus Black has a internal storage capacity of 2GB out of which 1GB is available for the user. The 512MB RAM is decent enough to allow reasonable speed for accessing the resources of the device. In case that the internal storage capacity is not enough, the user can store loads of data including music files, games, images and videos with the microSD card slot that allows the user to enhance the memory capacity up to 32GB.

Other Features

LG Optimus Black has now been upgraded to Android Ice Cream Sandwich from Android Gingerbread, which would give the user access to even more games and apps from the web. Nearly, 7,00,000 applications and games are available for downloading at the Google Play Store, previously known as Android Market. It comes loaded with lots of pre-installed games and applications, too.


LG Optimus Black comes powered by the standard lithium ion battery of 1,500 mAh that provides a a standby time of up to 375 hours and a talk time of up to 6 hours.


LG Optimus Black comes with loads of data connectivity features including the USB port that makes sure that the user can connect with computer and laptops so as to exchange data. The Bluetooth, GPRS and EDGE facility round up the connectivity features including the Wi-Fi with Wi-Fi direct and Wi-Fi hot spot. The USB port is version 2.0 and not 3.0 which would restrict the speed by that much.

Other Features

LG Optimus Black when compared to Apple iPhone 4 has a different operating system with the former featuring the Gingerbread operating system whereas the latter features the iOS 6. LG Optimus Black comes with a 4 inch screen as compared to the iPhone4's 3.5 inch display. There is a microSD card slot that comes with LG Optimus Black that allows the user to expand the memory of the device up to 32GB. The internal storage capacity is 32GB with Apple iPhone 4 while LG Optimus Black has a 1GB internal memory that is available for the user. The pixel density offered is more in iPhone 4 with 329ppi as compared to the latter's 232ppi. LG Optimus Black has the radio FM facility which the Apple iPhone 4 does not while the standby time offered by the device is also more than Apple iPhone 4.

Other Features

LG Optimus Black made its debut in the year of 2011 and made decent headway in to the market. The company has announced that LG Optimus Black has now been upgraded to Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. With the market currently using Android Jelly Bean and waiting for Jelly Bean 2 as the upcoming operating, we have to keep in mind that LG Optimus Black initially came with Android Froyo.
