One thing that really caught my attention upon unboxing my LG Optimus Black last week is how slim the unit is.
I held the phone and I marveled at its ultra-thin frame and light-weight construction. I even asked myself, "How can something this slim have heavy weight features? Can this really deliver what's written on paper? LG must be kidding me!"
But boy oh boy, all my questions were answered and I became a true believer the moment I turned the smartphone on. LG Optimus Black's renowned 700-nit NOVA display, the brightest in the world, immediately grabbed my attention, as if telling me that I was wrong to underestimate the phone. The homescreen followed and when I saw the clarity of the display and the brilliance of the colors, I just knew that LG Optimus Black is a phone I'll be more than proud to own.
But its screen isn't all that's amazing about LG Optimus Black. The phone had me saying 'Wow!' repeatedly when I started discovering all of its amazing features. Believe it or not, this very sleek handset actually comes with a High-Definition 720p Video Recorder and 5 MegaPixel autofocus camera -- making it an ideal device to bring to events or parties with friends; Use it to capture all of those important life moments with your loved ones. The handset also runs on Android operating system and features various homescreen widgets, pre-installed applications like Email, Video Player, Photo Gallery, Maps and Music Player and even Social Networking Apps like Facebook for LG and Twitter for LG, which are seamlessly integrated with other applications. You'll wonder at how something so slim and sexy could be so powerful.
I've taken the liberty of shooting photos of my LG Optimus Black (, which I've named 'Bee' - I name all of my gadgets, remember?) just to show you how sleek, slim and stylish this powerhouse-of-a-handset is:
During LG Optimus Black's media unveiling earlier this year, LG called it the 'world’s slimmest smartphone'. Measuring only 9.2 millimeters at its thickest point and weighing just 3.8 ounces
TP Friends, you can tell: I love this smartphone.
