  • Official ICS for Optimus black is out.. you can download it from LG's website or can load using smartflash.

  • i am an LG Optimus Black user for 6months. before i had also experienced the same problem. Applications suddenly freeze then i have to remove the battery to make it normal again. But after i rooted my OB and install Jellybean and cYAnogenmod 10, its now became faster and no more lags. And its overall looks became different coz of Jellybean. Try to do it also on your OB, and you'll appreciate that even more after upgrading ur OS. I can be of help at anytime to give you video instructions and guide you so you won't get wrong upon upgrading your OS. pls. send me an email: [email protected] And by the way, about the silicon case. I am here in Riyadh Saudi Arabia. I am lucky that there are lots of silicon case here for LG Optimus White/Black which cost only for 2USD. I can send you one if you want, i will send picture of it for you to choose. thanks again...

  • you should try to root your OB and install Jellybean. This will make your OB looks great and really fast. i can help you how to do it,,,send me an email so i can give you all the instructions. [email protected]

  • This is a great phone for the price; no more words, if you have 230 $, run to amazon and buy it !! is great.

  • This is a great phone. i have used many android but its great. good battery nice look attractive and value for money. i have used other samsung but this is always best. Thanks To LG for OPTIMUS BLACK P970. Avinash Parihar The Modern Monk.

  • Root it and install jelly bean on it.. stop blaming LG for every stupid thing.

  • lg has let us down by now....... it has been q4 but still no any update for ics for lgp970... i change my mind... next phone will be htc instead of buying lg........ suck.....

  • The bad: battery and ram.

  • Itx a superb fone ....

  • Its an excellent phone

  • I've used this phone for almost 7 months. There's a lot of good side and also bad side. First, i'll talk about the good side : - design is so beautiful. - the fonts available is so cyute. - camera is also nice. - easy to handle. - people always mistaken my phone as iphone XD the bad side : - the internal memory and RAM is not enough for me. (well, because i love to design the interface) - its superhard, VERY HARD! to find silicon case for this phone (in Malaysia and i guess in korea is also very hard to find it since i've ask my friend to buy it when she travel to korea, but she said she cant find it -.-") - i've experienced a situation where my phone suddenly lost its sensitivity. when touch the screen, nothings happen. so, i bring my phone to service center and have to wait around 2 weeks to get my phone back. but thanks, its still in warranty, if not i have to pay around rm200 for this problem. - I STILL USE ANDROID 2.2 AND STILL CANT UPGRADE. LG IS SO SLOW ABOUT THIS UPGRADE THINGGY T.T about applications: well, in my opinion no matter what model you used, it depends on how you manage it. if you know the size of your phone memory and RAM, sure you will know how much apps you will download. if we download it like a lots, of course the phone will act so slow. its same with laptop case, when you put so much thing, it will lag. so do the smartphone. i think thats all from me. and YES, i still love this phone soooooo much! disappointed with ONLY because of not enough RAM & internal memory, STILL NOT UPGRADE TO LATEST ANDROID VERSION and SUPER HARD TO FIND THE SILICON CASE, CUTE CASE FOR THIS PHONE JUST LIKE IPHONE CASE T.T - Malaysia, user since February 2012.

  • its very beautifull and rich look too.its brightness is super

  • no betery back up

  • wow great phone !

  • Is it worth buying? Is it good for video calling on skype?

  • Is this phone up-gradable to 4.11?

  • Hey guys. I have a problem about the front camera and sometimes the main cam wont open too. Just bought this phone, what do you think I should do? I really have no idea what to do.

  • Hi everyone! I've had this phone for almost a year now. Has anyone had any trouble with the front camera?? The image is very discolored (lots of red, greens, and blues)... almost like one chose a setting for a cartoony look but all settings are normal. Any suggestions?? Thank you!

  • hi I have this device, and my problem is that I cant ear music throu Bluetooth headset´┐Ż. It get connect I can make call.. Then I install the app to ear songs throu bluetooth, it say it routed to bluetooth but still I cant ear it.. Am sure of the problem..any one know anything about this???

  • yes dude that is true, i m also experiencing same prob after updating my p970 to 2.3, it took ages to start the cell phone...

  • DON'T BUY THIS PHONE. I bought this phone and it is horrible i regret buying it. Super slow and takes like forever to open application and hangs with no reason.

  • There is a problem while upgrading in your system.. You better give the service center itself to upgrade.. Its not motherboard problem.. They're bluffing.. Its a problem with the ROM.. The service center itself will take care of upgrading it..

  • This phone has no USB tethering. Even samsung android 2.1 phone has USB tethering. It is very bad why LG forgot this. Also the network change over operation / networt selection is very slow compared to sony smart phone. please check if this happens only to me ( airtel ). However i managed USB tethering using PDAnet but reverse USB tethering becomes impossible. Atleast LG may consider this weakness and rectify in future updates. This is really a very important options for net users.

  • Which is better Galaxy W or LG OB (White version)???

  • excellent handset! i've been using this for a couple of months now, and so far i never really had a problem with it. good for browsing and gamings, it connects fast to wifi. its just like you have a mini tablet. i love its 4 inch screen size and resolution, very good for gaming. video and cam is also good since it's an hd ready, i also love its sleek design, simple yet sophisticated. it is thin and very light. battery could last for 2 days, but for heavy browsing and gamings well it could only last for 5 hours, 6 hours the most. this is definitely worth buying.

  • My p970 is stuck at boot in the LG logo, it occurred after upgrading to 2.3 , Took to service center , they say it is a mother board problem , any body else having this problem? they say i have to wait until the spare come from Korea.. damn

  • lg p970 is tha bomb why lie check it aut en see tha real thing.its soooo sleek

  • i live in ireland can i get the lg optimus black (white version ) here ? please write back

  • Best Models for LG Android Phone i ever used

  • Go to this site.. Best online shopping site in the world.. Better than www.amazon.com.. Buy.. :)

  • How can i get the white version of LG optimus black, i live in U.S. Texas to be exact, and is there any difference beside color because i see some ppl posted lg optimus black(white) internet speed is very good.

  • Don't trust anyone who say LG is bad.. This phone has got the best hardware.. There were problems with the Gingerbread upgrade.. It is solved now.. This phone is still available.. Options for phones in this range is HTC Incredible S.. Go for LG Optimus Black if you want good camera and fast processor and gaming.. Go for Incredible S if you want good music, Beats Audio enhancement may be available after ICS update.. So music quality 0guaranteed in HTC.. Good service for HTC phones in India.. Build quality is awesome in any HTC.. But when you compare Black wit Incredible S, there is a good competition b/w the 2.. Camera is better in black than incredible S.. Its upto you, what factors are important to u.. Internet is fast in incredible S when you compare with Black..!!!

  • Nice phone with awesome design it is a real fashion smartphone!

  • what is the latest update for this mobile..

  • to all the people who say neo v is the best mobile..can u plz tell smthng dat cud change mi mind abou me not buyin optimus black... you'll get specs outprfrmng neo v everywhere..jus d hdmi doesnt make all the difrnce

  • its a very good phone with good internet speed

  • I am happy to use this phone. waiting for ICS update from LG. So far there is issue on this model when I use Skype video call front camera is not functioning. It does not mean the camera is faulty. On yahoo & oovoo video calls, front cam is working fine. Is anybody got same issue?

  • I already have got a white optimus black and you must buy sony or other trade mark. LG is really very slow phone :(

  • guys which is best LG Optimus black(White version) or Xperia Arc S

  • Friends . This mobile phone will be updated in the third quarter of 2012 ice cream sandwich !

  • Yup.

  • Neo v is the best mobile

  • is lg optimus black upgradeable to ics?

  • World's brightest display(NOVA DISPLAY)ever,challanging the SUN's brightness....as per rankwise it comes under the 1-10 bestest innovation in the universe,till date.

  • This is an awesome phone,because... 1)It's comes around Rs.19k(kolkata price) 2)It has Wifi Hotspot...transfer 35mb file within 2-3 min. 3)Great 5mp camera with best clarity and front 2mp camera. 4)It has a Divx player in-built with Dolby digital sound(Awesome). 6)Very easy to access with front 2mp camera easy to do any vedio call ,Great looks & very slick.wide screen. 7)Great battery back up(depend on the usage)but still v.good compare to other android smart phone. ~What else need to buy a great smart phone like OPTIMUS BLACK. I'm happy by using this gadget....thnx LG.

  • I bought the White color. It's looks are very good. It's Slim, Sleek. Downloaded the WiFi cast app from the LG world its very easy to share big files of 35 MB it hardly takes 2-5 mins to transfer big files to other wiFi cast supported devices. Upgraded to Gingerbread the camera clarity has increased and the performance too. It's has the best displayed compared to the Samsung Galaxy SII. Need to install Task killer and enable auto kill option to increase the battery performance. The Price is also less compared to other Andriod phone with this configuration.

  • My LG P970 cannot detect my sim card..it say's no sim card inserted.. I've try another sim card and still say's the same..

  • I loved the phone, and it lasted 1 week for me, until it needed charging! Also, it had a 5 MP camera, and Bluetooth, also it had internet access, using Facebook, G Mail, and many more! If i could give this phone, 5 stars or more, i would choose the highest level, because, its really all i needed! Before, i was stuck on thinking what phone i had wanted, until i heard about this, and i bought it! I can't wait until, new LG phones come out in the stores, but this one is best!

  • Sex phon

  • the battery life of this phone is great, it can even last up to 48 hrs (days) average using. Just use 2G, turn off automatic sync, and turn off wifi if you're not using it, set your time out to 15 seconds or 30. It can last up to two days. I've been using the phone for 2 months now. Download also antutu battery saver, this app surely helps. Enjoy your OB white.

  • The optimus black had fallen from three feet ith had broken into chaps and unable to use the service centre had said u got a major damage on u ar phone

  • It is not so bad as other has said. Just dont leave WIFI on if you are not using it. For me, I always plug in to charge during the night. Full charge will last me the whole day from morning to late evening with average calling, SMS and Email through WIFI.

  • Hi Guys, good day! ^_^ Just want to ask regarding its battery life, is it awful, unacceptable or is it good and convenient???? I'm planning to buy my very first smartphone next week, but all of those (other brands) are having an issue in battery life, which I think the most important in cellphones, portability phones. Thanks in advance! @_@

  • Neo v

  • i do have this phone but i was just wondering everytime im opening any applications before it opens it kinda blockout for like 2-3sec before opening every application. i just bought it last 3 days ago.

  • try updating date and time.

  • the same scenario happened to my phone recently... Just go to the nearest service center for LG and let them fix it for you. I got my phone fixed after 2 hrs and it's already upgraded to Android version 2.3.4 be sure that you back up your phone cause they'll going to erase all the program / reset the phone. so probbably all your contacts, messages, etc. will all be deleted after the upgrade.

  • Upgrading you OS can be done thru LG Suite, it automatically detects or gives you information that there's already new version for you OS. Just do as instructed during the process. But to make it safe and avoid hung ups during the software update, it's better to bring it to their service center and let their technician do that thing. at least at the end of the day you'll be sure that it's properly done. It's free...

  • the better way to fix that problem is to go to the nearest accredited service center of LG and let them fix it for you. And if it is still on warranty, use it just bring your receipt and the whole box.

  • when will saudi arabia get gingerbread update for this fone???????????

  • Have this phone for about a month now, all is great beside the battery will drain faster with wifi on like everyone says. Guessed it is a smartphone and Android thing. I can live with that. One thing really bothered me though is the earphone that comes with it, I have not seen anything worst than this. It is really a joke that LG put this crap with a great phone.

  • ei guys..from the looks of it, this phone has SMS issues..?

  • 2.3.4 out germany... ITS great!

  • I really like this phone form factor. Not oversized, light weight, simple design. I hope LG will make clone of this phone using Snapdragon SOC plus larger battery capacity..

  • SE Xperia neo v is the best.u can go for it blindly

  • I upgraded to V10g last evening. Nothing seems to have changed. In fact, I don't see any change from V10e to V10g. Heck, I'm waiting for the upgrade to Gingerbread! Stupid, stupid of me to buy an LG.

  • Please anyone can tell me what is its battery timings. because i am afraid of battery most of android phone.

  • I recently updated my optimus p970, it's upgraded to Kernel Version - 2.6.32 Build number - FRG83G Software version - LG-P970-V10g Does any one else has later version than this one? (only official upgrades from LG's Website)..

  • This is one of the best android in market with a decent price and optimum performance. Have been using this device for more than 3 months now and I must say I'm completely satisfied with its graphics, sound and screen. After the upgrade to 2.3 last month the functionality is improved. Good work Team LG.

  • Got this phone, it gets alot of comments and functionality is awesome!

  • I love this phone. Where can i get one to purchase

  • Both good phones, both with good and bad points, the LG screen is outstanding and for me has the edge!

  • Good news.........LG announced ICECREAM SANDWITCH ICS upgrade plans for most of the smartphones in OPTIMUS family....official launch is mid december 2011

  • how can have Black a White version? LOL

  • very very very very sexy phone

  • sexiest smartphone looks so sexy

  • why is that worst?? i need to buy it..

  • HI That is marvelous phone ever seen, especially the white one. very thin and light.

  • y it is a worst phone ever???

  • The worst ever phone in this universe now and always

  • Irony much..?

  • This has short battery because it's a smartphone, duh.

  • Optimus!! after using for 2 weeks, SUCKS!! short battery life(less than a day), need to reset by turning off daily or else hang!! AVOID!!!

  • I perfectly agree with you Manu. I got this device for my wife recently and its working absolutely fine. The only issue being the photo shoot in dark which is not quite good otherwise its magnificent. just FYI, I have spoken to LG customer service and the 2.3.3 Gingerbread update will be available in the month of December '11. You just need to download the LGSoftware update from the website and once you connect your device via USB, it will ask for the update automatically. So, just wait for a month or two. Cheers Subhra

  • how could optimus black be white? ;p

  • Okay.. Thank you:D

  • i have this phone for almost 3 months and don`t see any dust issues in it. Don`t understand what you are talking about. it`s perfectly clean. About the rest i like it a lot. besides being a looker, it has an amazing vivid screen and works very well. I`ve had some issues with the camera (photos and videos) that sometimes crashes when you switch from video to photo mode. We could really use an update to android 2.3, mainly because most of it`s potential is still hidden due to Froyos limitations. i hope LG remembers us and delivers an update before the end of the year.

  • Use 3G Sim(voda,rel,bsnl), then go to setting--wireless network--networkmode--wcdma for 3G network u r getting 3Gnetwork, generaly use atuo.

  • does it require dataplan?

  • So I'm getting the white Optimus black and was wondering is the phone good or not? Does the dust go under screen or not? Because I really haven't had a touch screen or LG phone before. I really don't wanna be disappointed. I wanted HTC desire but they didn't have it so is this phone okay? Just asking...

  • FAIL

  • Hey its has flash

  • i say great phone looks great and works great too.

  • Fully waste of money LG is only good in home appl dont even to invest in it Xperia Ray ,Neo is better than LG black

  • Optimus 1 does not support flash 10.3 even 10.1 due to its hardware limitations,.

  • Dear friend; Search on android market 10.3 adobe flash player is compatible with phone.

  • Can some one please help me.. I have optimas one also checked the features or other latest LG Smart phone ..my phone doesnt support adobe flash player ..If come one can help do other latest LG phone Adobe flash player or they as well dont ? help

  • hi i am Senith. i watched the new HTC phone with Beats Audio, that very interesting. so why Lg Optimus Black(White) Can't cooperate with Beats Audio ? and I think everybody like beats audio. Please develop Lg Optimus White with Beats Audio.

  • no flash?

  • Very very sexy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! White color with slim design

  • Switch to 2G and use only 3G when really needed... Your batery will last twice ;-)

  • I've got this mobile from one week now... And I've been using it a lot and trying to get used to it asap. I am a former BlackBerry and iPhone user. This LG is GREAT. Awesome. The problem with the battery was an issue to me but I found out the solution: - Besides trying to keep running the services your REALLY need (facebook, twitter, etc.) the batery live was rally improved since I am using 3G network ONLY when really needed. I am on 2G (can be switched in the configuration easily) and switch to 3G when I need to use maps or browse on the internet. Yo don't need 3G for WhatsApp, Facebook or social networks. OK, it's a little slower but doing this my battery lasts twice. Now talking about the OS, the display and the software... so far I am IMPRESSED. Enjoy it!!

  • My Battery doesnt last more than a day, even doesnt have any activity hardly make calls, try to update the software from lg pc suite, its has the latest one. Switch off brightness to 0, use task killer, i dont even listen to music beside email ... anyone can give suggestion ???

  • Its not a problem its a system your wifi is connected so ur apn are gone but net is connect 2 wifi

  • i want cost

  • I got this phone 2 weeks ago, one thing i just observed about this handset is that it is hard to connect via 3g mobile network... anyone can tell me how can i manage this problem? one more thing, is 2.3 gingerbread already available in the android market?

  • wow thnx for launching it in kenya...lol

  • only froyo????

  • Who gives if it's the brightest screen? These days, consumers are looking for a screen that has millions of colors and/or screen that displays text sharp. Maximum brightness = Battery killer.

  • I've got one last week, All function are good but only got one problem.. while i connect to the wifi, if im browsing, it won disconnected... but if i stop browsing, just put my phone there (with wifi connected), after few mins, i wan to browse, then it shows connection problems but the wifi is actually still connected, all i have to do is disconnect the wifi, and reconnect again...... everytime when i stop browsing( just awhile ) ,when i wan to use it , i have to disconnect and reconnect the wifi..quite annoying actually . Is it the setting problems or wifi itself got problems?! does anyone experience this?! please Help! thanks!

  • Apple never release iPhone 4G...they only release iPhone 4. The number 4 indicates the model series and iPhone do not support 4G network..not yet..it is not that advance bro. Get your fact right. HTC and Samsung have 4G phone but not Apple.

  • good than samsung galaxy series

  • baler mobile...

  • i soooo want this phone, it looks cool and nice.. :-)

  • I have the Black for a few days already.i do like the phone. Strong points are of course the screen and the looks. it`s a gorgeous phone. i do like the camera. Videos are great and pictures are very nice too. Flash is surprisingly strong. Not so good is the software itself. I`ve previously used a xperia phone and the software although simple is a lot better in comparison to what LG has to offer. There`s no backup utility in it (at least i didn`t see one). facebook and Twitter apps are a joke and the weather apps are the standard ones from accuweather. The G button is a nice addition but other than that i was hoping for more. In terms of OS and UI fluidity it`s good. Very few effects used and theres a bit of lag sometimes, but that`s to be expected since it`s still stuck in android 2.2.2. I hope LG updates the phone in this department very quickly. The hardware is there but LG isn`t keeping up in the software department. Battery usage is ok. I get 2 days with moderate usage (2 or 3h of internet, 1h of music play and some messages). To save battery i just use taskiller and kill all apps idle in the background. P.S - To answer a question i just read. Flash is built in the browser, but of course you have to update it in the market. It works wonders. ;) The update to android 2.3 is reported to be available in september, october tops. I hope so.

  • Rusted... Trushh!!!

  • did the spec same as optimus black??

  • Can anyone confirm that since its 3G network support is different region-wise? Meaning: the european version will not work in the 3G network of US?? Please post your opinions! * corrected post *

  • Yeah, it looks cool and stunning :). I don't know but i'd just love the white one....

  • LMAO. :))

  • Apple and those guys giving the white patent are idiots. Can I wear white shirt? Can Nike makes white sport shoes? Don't make jokes.

  • Does it support multi-touch... How is the touch when compared to galaxy and iphone

  • thanks!I lickit this MOBILE

  • You're right. Last time I checked, Apple patented the white color. So anything white, Apple should sue them. LOL BTW, nice changes you've done here, GSMArena. Fresh new look.

  • Ohh.....! Why its not multitouchable,.?m totaly disapointed...

  • Better looking than the black one. No multi-touch input method or just missed including it on the specs? That's odd..

  • lg we need the gingerbread upgrade .. optimus black is being left behind on its class because it still run on froyo, htc sony and samsung is going now on gingerbread its a shame such a powerful phone is still running on froyo when its screaming for a upgrade to gingerbread

  • Is it same "LG BLACK" ? only colour differance ?

  • I am using optimus black..and this look cute..

  • Don't think US will get this LG white anytime soon, the waiting game continues...

  • Suddenly, the P970 looks 10x as good! Makes me consider buying one!

  • I am still unsure about the quality of LG, is there anybody can convince me?,

  • not really a fan, but its better than a white Iphone and will be alot cheaper
