LG optimus black?


Established Member
i haven't been able to find a huge amount out about this phone, except for a few negatives about the battery, casing, and OS, and a couple of positives about the camera and screen. it seems it has been delayed in the UK until tomorrow, and from what i can tell it is because it is potentially more flawed than advertised (at CES for example).

its main weakness is its battery life as far as i can see. having said that, tmobile rang me with a 300 mins, unlimited texts, unlimited internet and free phone for £14. i couldn't really say no to that package and phone, so i'm now wondering about selling it and upgrading to something else.

i assume i could get around £350 for it on ebay, given that its about £400 on payg. does anyone have any experience with the phone at all? any suggestions on a good alternative?

i should have the phone tomorrow, so i'll update with my opinions - but i don't have a lot to compare to

got it this morning.

great looking phone, great screen.

seems to drop frames when scrolling (which is odd because it scores well in quadrant)
makes a stupid clicking noise when typing texts, which i can't seem to get rid of.

not sure about the battery yet.
