Hey GSMARENA, I just wonder why and most LG users will agree that why LG phones (especially Optimus range) never manage to break/enter your Most Popular Phones section albeit it has a very good review. It has been a Nokia territory despite their not so good review. Some of the Nokia phones entered there are below par excellence.
GalaxySL vs Optimus Black
Why is it that there are many video commercials for Optimus Black while GalaxySL has NONE??
Anonymous, 04 Aug 2011Hello, I am very much inclined to buy Optimus Black P970 over Samsung Galaxy I9003 SL. My qu... moreI dun think OB drain battery fast, as you know android OS device are draining the battery because there is still running apps at background even u killed or terminated the apps.. For me, one single charge for my OB can last for 1.5days for continuously WIFI activated with some HD gaming... Not everyone is experience the battery drain and battery life is depend on how u use the phone and how u take care of your phone battery (overcharged?charge although it is 50%?)
Anonymous, 04 Aug 2011Confused btwn LG Optimus Black or SAMSUNG Galaxy SL...... both having same hardware but optimu... moreIts depends on your choice, dude. Some will go for optimus and some will go for galaxy, OB is the newer and provide better screen display output, both of the devices are the same spec with same GPU. Only different is internal storage which OB have 2GB while Galaxy have 4GB. Just to let you know that, galaxy SL do experience auto reboot and hangs in a lot for many SL users. Black have the advantages on light weight with slim body and led flash camera while SL have super clear LCD but not the good display compare to OB's NOVA display and better internal storage
Im confused, other reviews says it does not have gorilla glass, which is it? help pls :)
im using optimus black 2 months..what can i say?faced zero probs so far. i like its screen display,like its camera (at least better than blackberry)..i like optimus black..i love my optimus..
kd, 04 Aug 2011well i really want to go for this one but now seeing video on u tube that it is a bit sluggish... more1. Yes, launcher pro seems to help a bit. ADW launcher is a good choice too.
2. Yes, but sometimes screen might pause for less than a second. You won't even notice.
3. My classmate has an iPhone 4. In terms of brightness, OB slays it. But OB cant beat the richness of the pixels of the iPhone
4. Cyanogenmod is not yet supported for OB. Do not try the said cyanogenmod in the net, wait for it on cyanogen website, or else ull brick ur phone

My query if about the video aspect ratio distortion that is argued my every leading mobile sites like gsmarena. They say that video recorded on phone when viewed is ok but when it is transfered to PC, aspect ratio goes haywire. has any one faced something like that?
Also in many forums its been told that LG applications on optimus black drain battery pretty fast. is it so?
well i really want to go for this one but now seeing video on u tube that it is a bit sluggish i a holding off can any one who has it let me know the following
1 does installing launcher pro fix lag
2 do hd games play with out lag
3 is the screen truly better than i phone 4
4 has any one tried instailling cyanogen mod 7 does fix most of problems
battery is no lasting good...even the screen britness reduce to 20% ...plzz help me.....i'm i'm so confuse ....this is my first android phone.
