hi guys, please anyone can tell me what is the latest android version available for this phone, kindly tell me because i need to buy this phone.
The optimus black got an excellent screen, but there are other things I have to state here, its edges are sharp and uncomfortable, the volume and g keys are not easy to find they need to be higher.
The browser is excellent. If you upgrade to 2.3 gingerbread the touch key light will turn off in 4 seconds which is very annoying to me. The loud speaker in handsfree sound very robotic. The battery is average.
Is it worth upgrading for Gingerbird(2.3)? if anybody has upgraded please share your views.

Hello. I'm new here and to LG Optimus Black P970.
But recently i got this problem where the screen and the touch sensitive controls (Options, Home, Back, Search buttons) does not respond. The touchscreen is not broken. What should I do and what might be the problem?
AnonD-73367, 26 Sep 2012Does anyone know if this phone can run Instagram?Yes it can be installed with Instagram.
Adi, 22 Sep 2012because of the poor lg support, my next smartphone will be samsung or sony... tired to wait lg... morePurpose of a cellphone is to make or receive calls not having the thrill of updating the software. Why do people always so crazy about updating the software is beyond my understanding. If it aint broken, dont fix it.

Optimus Black vs. Optimus 2X?
Try using the compare tab in this website and take note of the Storage, Camera, OS, and Processor.
i have been using this phone for a month now. at first, the stock OB (with Froyo) is quite slow and the battery is really terrible. But once you update it to official 2.3 Gingerbread, everything seems to be fine. I already rooted my OB so I tried installing custom ICS ROMS from Cyanogen Mod. But the camera was affected. I installed NOA v4 which is a custom android 2.3 but very much similar to the official 2.3 with slight tweaks. Since then, my OB performs even better. No more lagging and the battery reaches almost 2 days without charging (i seldom play with my phone).
Optimus OB almost has everything except the power of dual and quad core processors and it only has 512MB of RAM. Recommended phone for the average users.
(Just be careful in rooting and installing custom roms. You might brick your phone aside from the fact that you lose your warranty).
hope this helps.
