There is a review posted on telefonino.net for this phone.
As much as I could read from the review, the screen is great, but I don't believe it is really that much power efficient as they say. The reviewer wrote that it manages to get you through the day with one charge and thats it. I was expecting more, but this is only the first review, so we have to wait for some more.
if this phone manages to sneak into market b4 samsung galaxy sl with the right price tag of around 450$/20000 inr ...this would be an obvious choice.....
advantages over sgsl are:
1.slimmer design,better looks,light weight
2.led flash camera
3.512 mb ram(hopefully!!!)
1.gorilla glass display missing
3.swype text input missing
4.just 2 gb internal memory(thats really poor)
although the disadvantages are not much ,but those r the features which people use evry day and the advantages cant be felt when used on real time basis.....
with the right price tag this phone could be a massive hit in the mid segnent........
hopefully the disadvantages are sorted b4 the release.....
suggestions and corrections are welcome.......
and pls review this phone for god sake...
it has been a month since ces and still no review
thank u all....
Nice specs.. but it's kinda cheap looking(based on the pics). I'm guessing it will be on the same price range as new samsung galaxy ace(well, it should be)
LG should get rid of that ugly LG logo in the front panel, learn like Samsung did.
a very attractive and youthfull phone from lg.i have been waiting for gsmarena review though there are some reviews in other sites.
Nice display, I'd take it over AMOLED any day...just look how many people have a burnt in status bar on the Galaxy S after a few months of use..
A shame it's not dual core...
Andrei, 19 Feb 2011Does LG Optimus Black have scratch resistant or gorilla glass display????? I think this featu... moreExactly. Nowhere is mentioned if this model has a scratch resistant display. If it doesn't I would really consider going for another phone.

I think this feature is very important for the 4 inch display.
The shaking and tilting gestures showed on the hand-on preview of this phone are completely useless. Do they really believe that shaking the phone when going through the gallery is useful? Or shacking the phone 3 times to get get into camera mode? Or even worse tilting the phone to navigate in the browser.
No DivX XviD support out of the box. A huge let down of this great phone. Desire S and Incredible S will have an advantage over this phone in multimedia department (not as goodlooking as black though).
Apparently this phone is going to be priced lower than optimus2x so this phone will possibly be targeted to mid-range market. If that's true I think this phone will be a huge hit since it still packs 1ghz processor with fascinating NOVA display. Plus it's extra slim and stylish!
Anonymous, 15 Feb 2011Can't wait for GSMArena's review.
They say it'll be affordable eh. :-)
And it's Android. And... moreI think ill agree..
Ill also change my wave for this, just waiting for a review and a couple of months
How in the world could LG not make this phone a 4G, dual core and nod HDMI is beyond me. What a waste of a beautifully designed phone to be lacking such important specs. This is just such a waste, shame on LG.
Can't wait for GSMArena's review.

And it's Android. And an LCD screen not S-AMOLED. S-AMOLED is good but being treated to an all-black interface (add bada OS) takes the "awesomeness" away. The UI is too feature-phonish. Just my opinion.
This could be my S8500 replacement.
