The LG Optimus range of smartphones has seen a number of releases over the last few months. Each one has its appeal for different reasons. A good example of the manufacturer’s new generation smartphones is the LG Optimus Black. Whilst other Optimus handsets have a unique feature as their main selling point such as the LG Optimus 2X (first dual-core processor in a smartphone) and the LG Optimus 3D (first smartphone with a 3D camera and screen), the LG Optimus Black offers a great all round package of premium features.

In this article I will take a closer look at its main specifications and see what this great looking phone has to offer in terms of both hardware and software, and the type of user experience you can expect.

One of the most impressive aspects of this phone has to be its touchscreen. It is among the brightest screens available on a mobile phone, and incorporates some very impressive technology. IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen technology combined with the ability to display up to 16 million colours (with a resolution of 480x 800) means that the display quality is top notch. Not only is it bright and clear with fantastic detail, but it also offers a highly responsive and interactive means of navigating the user interface, and even uses less battery power than other types of touchscreen technology.

A smartphone would not be a smartphone without a built in digital camera. The LG Optimus Black offers a 5 megapixel unit with a decent resolution of 2592x 1944 resulting in very good quality still images. Although this may not be the highest resolution available on a mobile phone, the results are still very pleasing. Geo-tagging, face and smile detection and an additional front facing camera (2 megapixels) are also included along with the ability to shoot 720p high definition footage. This makes the LG Optimus Black an attractive option for anyone who finds the camera an important aspect when choosing a new phone.

Operating System
The LG Optimus Black has Android 2.2 (Froyo) installed as standard, but users are able to upgrade this to run the latest version 2.3 (Gingerbread) and any other future updates, making it relatively future proof. There are many advantages to the Android operating system. It is highly customisable, and users are able to download additional applications from the Android market. There are many thousands of apps available from numerous categories. Therefore users are able to customise their phone to suit their own needs, meaning the sky is the limit in terms of functionality. Many of the apps are available free of charge, whilst a charge occurs for some premium apps. The ability to download applications is one of the major draws of owning a smartphone, and the LG Optimus Black has the power to make the most of any apps you choose to download.

There are many more advantages to this handset, but the features I have listed above are among the most important factors to take into consideration when choosing a new phone. As you can see, the LG Optimus Black ticks all the boxes when it comes to these. The handset itself is a very attractive unit, as the name suggests it sports a glossy black finish and is very slimline so sure to turn heads. It may not be groundbreaking in many respects, but offers a fantastic alternative to the few smartphone models which currently dominate the market.
