For me the 4.0" screen is not a big use if the phone doesn't support DIVX/XVID format...
yeah I agree, this is quite pricey... and i thought LG said it's going to be affordable...
galaxy sl is far better than this.......and the prise of this more expensive than galaxy sl.........samsung is the king of andorid phones...lg sukks there phones so many sofware issues..
It is better to go for Samusng galaxy S LCD which costs only 19,500 Rs in India.. Only difference is that Black has IPS display.
this is not a so gud pice because if u want this type of mobile than better choice is chose apple i-phone....
Someone please advise me..should I buy galaxy s vibrant (original) or optimus black... my main desire is to have good screen quality to play HD music videos with rich colors.. I had galaxy S before but its broke now but i LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED it..so please advice..is this better or galaxy s? thank you very much.
Im sure that the major drawback inthis phone must be its poor quality camera as its lg history that their almost every phones camera shoots poor quality images, Otherwise feature wise this is an awsome phone plz gsmarea post its detail review sooon we r waiting
shinu, 27 Feb 2011optimus black will cost below 20k in indiaHey how do you know that? Are you judging it by the price of Galaxy SL or you have some information about its pricing.
Answer for some of yall here.
ppi(pixel per inch) / dpi(dots per inch) both the are same thing. In display panel, resolution is the number of pixels / dots to form a picture. 720p in tv or youtube means 1280*720 (16:9) pixels / dots. pixel / dot usually (not all) have 3 colors red,green,blue and their combination is what fools our brain to see color for each dot.
iphone display has a high density, 326 ppi, 960*640 @ 3.5' . Nova display is just the regular density 480*800 @ 4'. dpi / ppi is tie with view distance, At 1 cm distance, you may find that iphone display is sharp than her counterparts, but a foot away it is less significant. It is apple way of brainwash yall to believe that dpi/ppi is important. if you check the resolution of monitor and tv, you will find that monitor has higher resolution with a smaller display because monitors are view at a closer distance while tv are a few feet from the sofa.
It is the brightness that nova is boasting. In monitor panel, contrast ratio can perhaps be the relevant measure for this. the brighter the display the better the images. Try tinker you monitor to a dimmer setting and you will find the display less desirable. My view(mine): LG is one of the big giant in making panels from tv to monitor, so their NOVA is just from their labs and i believe it should be worth a shot. However, their UI and programming code suck. Bad software design. lousy software efficiency. BUT, android is a standard platform based on Linux which uses a tree(maths) files hierarchy system. more than 80% of today's super(not those use at home) computer are running Linux.
This phone is supposedly to be cheaper than optimus x2. Therefore, it should not be drag into comparison with the most expensive counterparts. dont expect max features and this is meant to cost less.
Megapixel of camera warranty quality of image. It is just that more dots are being squeezed in to the capture image. Lens, GPU and post processing should be considered too.
Texas instrument is an American company that produces electronic goods. the OMAP chip in this phone is a single SYSTEM ON CHIP chip that does all the processing from instruction set of the CPU to H264 decoding in the GPU. its architecture is similar to most of the other phone. SAMSUNG produces chips to and their phone CPU are usually made by them. Tegra 2 is a ARM CPU with a geforce(check out desktop graphic card) GPU. The big player for chips in phones are ARM , Texas instrument and Qualcomm and they 3 are the standard(architecture, design pattern...... electronic geek design stuff) setters.
It cost 440 EURO in Germany
has Radio as per review
I think LG is asking too much for this unit
