Which are the Best Custom ROMs for Optimus Black?

LG is one of the brands making smart-phones for you. It has got a variety of smart-phones in its selling bag, from low-end to high-end – All. Optimus series is one among the different mobile phone series that it produced, and this alone has about fourteen smart-phones in it! LG is a Korean Consumer Electronics & Home Appliance Manufacturer, which started its mobile device business in 1996. For now, we will be briefly reviewing the LG’s Optimus Black P970, and look over the custom ROMs available for it – In fact the best custom ROMs.

LG Optimus Black looks to be a simple yet decent looking phone with not much style involved in it. This phone is as thin as 9.2mm and weighs only 109g. When it was launched into the market, it had the Android v.2.3.4 Froyo running on itself. The 1GHz Cortex-A8 processor is commendable as its counterpart phones used to have 600-800MHz frequency processors only (at the time of its release). The 5MP & 2MP cameras in the rear & front respectively, are well supported by the 4.0” display. It has a meager 2GB internal storage (1GB left out for the user, after OS & apps installed) but can be upgraded to 32GB (via an SD card). 1GB RAM has been put into, for faster processing. All the connectivity options are supported (wired and wireless), except the support for 4G – which was not there in May, 2011.

Features-wise LG Optimus is a good phone with its cost also being only € 220. An upgrade from Froyo to a higher OS is really desired by its users. For that, I thought of writing out, the best & the latest ROMs available – which can be flashed as and when desired. It is a disappointment to inform you that it has ‘not’ yet got a Jelly Bean update – either officially or unofficially. This follows good news, it has got custom ROMs based on Ice Cream Sandwich! I wish Jelly rocks the phone in near future.
