Default Are you happy with your LG black?

I'm thinking of getting this phone, but people I've spoke too told me that they had a lot of problems with their LG phones. I was wondering if they were unlucky or if this is a regular thing with LG ?

Between the LG Optimus Black and the Samsung Galaxy Ace which one would you chose?

yes, I really am. The thing is, I live in Argentina and for almost 4 years, I have had the Nokia 5230 which was in fact one of the best phones I've had. After that, I bought the Nokia 5800 which was quite good but the software was not up-to-date and just when Nokia released its 5.0 Firmware I updated it and in the next day, someone stole it from me. So I got the Samsung Jet S8000 which was pure rubbish it couldn't do anything and the Omnia II which was good but it lacked capacitive touch screen and speed was not good, no GPS because it didn't work, and so on (other than the fact that WM 6.5 was rubbish). SOOOO I got myself an Optimus Black which, at first glance is the best looking phone I've ever seen, and it really does what you expect it to do, neither the quickest nor the smoothest phone in the market but it WORKS I CAN GUARANTEE IT WITH MY LIFE XDXD

Default lg black

I have had many problems with the LG optinum black over the 4 months i have had it and its been back to LG repair shop 5 times , after 2 more days of repairs its still over heating and turning its self off
If you take the battery out it will boot up again or let it cool down it will start up.
Has any one ells had this problem with this phone ?

I purchased 3 LG-P970 online for $200 each.

One of them is so far doing okay, the other 2 have issues.

1 of them with issues has now had the flashing issue cannot get it fixed in Australia bcs of limited warranty.

In a nut shell LG is shit I would not reco this phone, IPhone 3 and 4 is a far better pcs of hardware.

If anyone finds out the flash issue pls post

You say iphone 3-4 are better? And you're asking about a flash issue?
I hope you know that an Iphone doesn't even have flash?

I have my optimus black since over a year and it's the best phone I ever had. Maybe there are better phones for the same price, but my choice was te LG-OB and I would choose it again

I have the 970. My only gripe is with PC Suite. It's really lacking in capability. You have to go 3rd party just to do file work. Nothing seems easy on the 970.

You mean you wish you bought a diferent phone? I think I do. If I had bought a samsung S2 instead it would already be on ICS or even Jellybean? nice and easy instead of me spending hours and hours fiddling with the stuff LG provide and so far not getting beyond android 2.2 (Froyo).

Not for me according to LG. Maybe T-mobile have not ratified any updates for the P970 in the UK?

I had this conversation with LG:

Received Date : 17/01/2013 20:23 18
The type of inquiry : Software/Hardware updates
Product/Model No. : WCDMA/LGP970

First of all can I ask why FOTA will say I have the latest software already. I last updated my firmware over a year ago in september 2011.

I have been having a conversation about my phone failing to update and I have tried compatibility mode as suggested and it still fails at 6%. I got the software from this website using internet explorer 9.

---------------------------
Dear ......

Thank you for your email regarding your P970


Based on the information you have provided me with, and after reading through your query, I would recommend that if your PC is running Windows 7 64Bit then you may have a isse with compatability you will be able to change this by right clicking on the icon and going into properties, Also i must ask which browser did you use to download the PC suite (if any) and the location that you downloaded the file from.
