Owned this unit for 7 months now, average camera, average video recording, playing Hd games lagged a lot. Now I'm using the zeus 7.03 custom rom + the LG 3.0 ui theme and my OB looks perfect. HD Games work flawlessly now, although I must say the lack of ICS on this device sucks. Thinking of getting an S2 but if I get a second battery I wouldn't upgrade.
As an entry level DROID, phone is perfect. But not good as a second or third DROID.
damn good phone in this price range
i m using it from last 8-9 mnths
till now no problm
hd video recording, picture cliks sound browsing all awesome

LG OPTIMUS BLACK P970
It is in the class of the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the HTC Wildfire but for only Ksh. 25,000. It is a must have for the dot com Kenyan lady because of its sleek features. The primary 5mp camera at the back and its 3G internet network does it for me in this gadget. Its scratch resistant screen is another highlight for me. Apart from the single core CPU this phone is worth every penny.
only 1,2,3,4 in my optimus black and there is no off in camera settings
AnonD-62598, 14 Oct 2012Thanks,i almost asked how to silence camera on this phone almost five times, all they say is&q... moreOpen the Camera app.
There should be a setting icon on the left side of the camera screen. There are actually five icons on that side. If they don't appear just touch the screen - they only appear for five seconds each time. Make sure you touch the part of the screen showing the image. These are the icons:
The first icon switches between front and rear camera
The second icon brings up a zoom bar
The third icon brings up a brightness control
The fourth icon brings up the flash controls
the fifth icon is CAMERA SETTINGS
The setting button is at the bottom. Tap it.
Next should appear a list of various camera settings - the list is like this:
Note that its a scrolling list - you can only see five options so you have to scroll down to the shutter sound option at the bottom. Tap that option and it will open five options on the right. These are:
The default is set to Tone 1 - you just set it to Off.
If you have trouble post your email and I can send you screenshots.
