The Black Beast has just being unleashed! Don’t worry people; it’s just the LG Optimus Black P970 that is released to the market this month. Featuring what the manufacturers would call it the NOVA display technology competing with Apple iPhone’s retina display and also the Super AMOLED Plus display from Samsung. Slim and lightweight at the same time makes this phone so sexy and attractive.
LG boast about the new NOVA display technology used in this phones IPS LCD. Furthermore, its 50% more energy efficient enabling a longer usage time for the phone plus the contras is brighter than the iPhone 4’s Retina Display and also on par with Super AMOLED Plus display from Samsung. Under sunny condition the phone does lit up bright enough so that the display won’t be affected by glare from the sun. Picture is bright and colorful thanks to 16 M-Color from the NOVA display.
The gesture control is same like the Optimus 2X. By pressing the button while tilting the phone would switch the home screen one by one. Also there are many uses for the gesture button including SMS or activating the camera without unlocking the phone. Options for turning on and off the Gesture feature are allowed so it’s not a must to use it.
Another feature about this phone is that it comes with 5 MP camera and a single LED flash with auto focus, manual/touch focus and also image stabilizer while there is also a front facing 2 MP camera. There is no camera dedicated button but using Gesture control the cameras function is much easier to be executed. Picture quality is above average but recording video is only limited to HD 720p only due to single core processor only.
Lastly there are also many basic functions like, A-GPS, Organizer, and Voice command. Social networking like Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace is included. SMS function is well performed in landscape or in portrait mode given the large screen size. The response is good and messages can be sent quite fast. There is also music player available for the phone and separated to different categories (Album, Artist, Playlist, and Songs). Tilting the phone to landscape mode turns the music player into 3D view is an interesting feature too. Calling quality is excellent thanks to the active noise cancellation dedicated mic.
Pros and Cons
The weak point of this phone is not all apps are supported due to the phone is running on a single core processor only. This would affect video rendering FullHD video as well all because of hardware issue, other than that this phone is near perfect.
