      Great ohone , but lacks a dual processor scoring a bit low in terms of performance.

      It was just last week that I got to lay my hands upon a fresh LG Optimus Black P970 mobile phone. I bought it from eBay and have been using it since then , discovering all its features and finally I have been able to review it. The first factor which I would like to highlight is the single core proecessor that the phone offers , this feature makes me ponder as to why did LG integrate a single core processor , when its competitors are constantly rolling out phones with dual core processors. We do have to lose something to gain another.

      So , lets start with the review :

      Look and Feel

      The full black colored body of the phone is obvious to be so as the name of the phone suggests. Lacking any hardware based buttons , the Optimus gives an iPhone replica look , coupled with the Android OS , which most people debate to be comparable to iPhone's iOS , well in my opinion , I still prefer iOS.

      LG does score on the mobile's weight though , keeping the device to an extremely light weight , its amazing that the phone only weighs 109 gms coupled with the battery.

      The edges are rounded similar to iPhone's old variants , but the phone has a bit unique and different look than that of other 4 inch screen based smartphone counterparts. As always , LG has been able to give the phone a flawless design along with a unique and stylish look , but I still feel it's a bit inspired by the legendary iPhone.

      Processor & Performance

      The Optimus Black is coupled with the OMAP 3630 chipset that features a 1GHz processor which unpredictable is just a single core processor. The graphic chipset used is PowerVR SGX530. Overall, the coupled hardware is able to provide a fluid touch experience and off-course is able to handle multi tasking easily.

      Camera and Multimedia

      LG brings about a disappointment among its fans , with the Optimus Black featuring a 5 MegaPixel camera , when one can find phones equipped with 12 MP cameras.
      There is a LED flash which does help to a bit extent to capture photos in the darkness. The device is also able to record 720p high definition video and the videos are smooth and vivid at all times , among most conditions.

      The Optimus Black, in short, is a real simple device with cutting edge design. It does score above other phones in terms of design , but the performance is not that impressive.
