Video: LG Optimus Black races the competition and beats them on physical specs

It is Friday! There is no better way to start the weekend than grabbing some tasty appetizers and beverages to enjoy along with a nice race! Only this is a different type of race. LG Mobile has put together a video of the LG Optimus Black on a race against the current best devices on the market.

The video does not mention the exact names of the other racers, probably due to legal reasons. One can speculate which devices they are talking about due to the similarity of the names though, and of course, by the way they look.

Though we wish LG would have included other specs, this video focuses on the physical qualities of the devices, but it is very entertaining nonetheless. If you do want to see more details about the Optimus Black, check out our hands-on with the device, along with the unboxing and benchmarks.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the race! Just for kicks, lets see how well you guys know the devices out there (“I want to play a game”)! Tell us which phones are the contestants! Personally, I am having doubts with one, the “HighTech Dwayne” (HTC Dream? It really doesn’t look like it on the video).

    This is quite retarded. The front of the s2 would have fit through the 9.3mm slot. The back wouldn’t have. Also the CPU is a 1.2ghz CPU…and a dual core….

    This video is absolutely moronic. Oh no! A phone that’s 9.3mm thick somewhere on it! What a fat-ass! Oh no! A phone that weighs more than 120 grams! What a fatass! If consumers are going to put a few grams or a tenth of a millimeter over features, performance, reliability, build quality, etc., then I honestly hope they get screwed.

    Quite a pointless ad I must say, but I really like the ending!

    The fall of the iPhone.

    Very humoristic
    The advertisement mainly promotes the fact that Black is lightweight (109 g) and thinnest 9.2 mm. It is the main reason why it is the winner.
    Some other are advertising for lower thickness forgetting to say that there is another higher thickness.

    You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation however I find this matter to be really something that I believe I might never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely huge for me. I’m taking a look ahead for your next publish, I will attempt to get the cling of it!
