The Optimus Black does a good job of picking up mobile phone signal and supports all of the wireless connections you'd expect from a smartphone. The WiFi direct mode allows it to communicate with other WiFi devices. Voice calls are perfectly fine, but...

Bottom line The LG Optimus Black combines a sleek design with an ultra-light handset to make what is certainly one of the best Android smartphones currently available. It might not pack the same punch as its rivals, but it's affordable enough to be a hit with a wi...

The LG Optimus Black is a slim, light smartphone, running on Google’s Android. It arrives in shops just after another Optimus, the 2X. It may be pitched at a lower price, and it’s got the looks. but how does the rest of the phone compare to it’s high-e...

LG's Optimus Black was launched with much less fanfare than the company's flagship LG Optimus 2X or fancy LG Optimus 3D, but it's an Android 2.2 handset with a single-core 1GHz processor that's lighter than the Samsung Galaxy S2. It's not quite as thin...
