Here is my first review of the battery life:
After fully charged it for 2 hours, the battery dropped 20% after 16 hours of moderate usage. I have the following settings:
1. Memory Booster on
2. Screen brightness is set to "Optimized Brightness"
3. Wifi On
My usage includes:
1. One very brief call.
2. Received and sent 15 sms each.
3. Browse Android Market for a few minutes.
4. Installed a couple of apps.
5. Played a game for 7 minutes.
6. Took 10 pictures using the highest resolution with three of them using the flash.
7. Recorded a one minute video using 720 resolution.
8. Played videos for 10 minutes.
9. Played YouTube videos for 10 minutes or so.
10. Browse photo gallery for a brief period.
11. Browse the net for 5 minutes.
12. Used GPS navigation (Sygic) for 25 minutes.
Oh yeah and admiring the gorgeous screen once in awhile throughout that period. At the time of writing this I still have 20% battery left. Will post more reviews later.

Anonymous, 14 Jun 2011is it really responsive? does it lag? please do tell.. :DNo lag on my phone. But I don't play heavy games..only games like..angry birds. On heavy games like asphalt 6 I'm sure it will have lags.
AnonD-3673, 13 Jun 2011How long does the battery last of black.....Like others 4' displays androids: 1 day on hard usage.
I bought it yesterday. Lemme use it for a week and then I'll write a review on this. So far so good. The screen is gorgeously bright. My initial impression on the Gesture key is not so good. Just an extra feature, can do without it. But the screen....gorgeous, beautiful.
tricky, 12 Jun 2011no gorilla glass ?No gorilla glass. But, read this (taken from mobile-review.com):
"the phone is not listed on the Gorilla Glass website but the protective plastic of the phone is very similar to Gorilla Glass products: it is scratch resistant but lacks an oleophobic finish so fingerprints are very noticeable on it."
About fingerprints..everybody uses screen guards..so this is not a problem.
the secondary cam is amazing copaired to the other phones i;v been lookin at.. ta has a 2MP cam which is good copaired to the iphone and others
khai_candy, 11 Jun 2011hello there . im thinking about buying LG Optimus Black right now . And i concentrate on the a... moreThe sound in loudspeaker is ok but it doesn't have bass.
Using the headset from the box, the sound is very bad. But, if you buy other powerful headset, the sound is very good (quality, bass..). So, the problem with the sound is not from the phone, it is from the original headset from the box.
Earpiece mode, when talking, is good, loud enough.
do ask about the sound quality ..
i guess u know something called "headset" ?
why use the loud speaker to turn the music on ?
come on buddy :D
im thinking about buying this phone . but what i read in the reviews is the audio quality is a big disappointment . can someone shine some light on the subject or elaborate on it ? how is the audio quality ? (loudspeaker and earpiece wise) please !
