LG Optimus 2X review

 

The world cried out for a dual-core smartphone and LG and NVIDIA answered the call. Actually, the world only ever dreamt about multicore mobile

The best smartphone hardware yet ; Camera picks up great amount of detail ; High quality LCD screen plus HDMI mirroring

Sluggish UI ; Buggy software ; Dual-core CPU doesn't add much value (yet!)

LG Optimus 2X review: Double the potential

 

Begun the dual-core revolution has. And there's no scouting time – the offensive starts with the big guns. The LG Optimus 2X is not just counting on the fancy Tegra 2 name to generate the sales – it is a powerful smartphone through and through.

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 10.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 4.0" 16M-color capacitive IPS LCD touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels) ; Android OS v2.2 Froyo with LG Home launcher ; Dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 proccessor,...

Despite similar technology LCD isn’t quite as impressive as the iPhone4 screen ; No dedicated camera key and no lens cover ; Captured 1080p videos not big improvement over 720p, have low frame rate ; No Android 2.3 Gingerbread at launch ; Audio quality...

LG Optimus 2X Cell Phone Review–Impressive Hardware

 

So today, we're going to settle in with an LG Optimus 2x, and this one will pack a lot in it. Will it be everything you want? No, not so much. But will it do a nice job of taking care of business?

Plenty of features ; Incredible battery life

Controls have a learning curve

The LG Optimus 2x runs Android 2.2.1, and offers up a four inch LCD display showing at 800 x 480 resolution. You’ll also get an eight megapixel rear-facing camera that records video in full 1080p, as well as a burst shooting mode, a 1.3 megapixel front...

LG Optimus 2X

 

LG Optimus 2X, the first smartphone with dual core processors. LG Optimus 2X using 2.2 Froyo Android operating system that are powered by dual core processors Tegra 2.1GHz.

All in all, the LG Optimus 2X is a value buy. If you are a diehard techie, you will be drawn to its over-the-top specifications. The massive touchscreen is also alluring - it's good for watching videos, reading and playing games. It comes with a HDMI...

LG Optimus 2X - HardwareZone.com

 

Powered by NVIDIA's Tegra 2 chip and loaded with Android 2.2 (with an upcoming update to 2.3), the LG Optimus 2X also offers 1080p video recording or playback through either its 4.0-inch WVGA screen or via HDMI-out.

Simplified UI; Brilliant 4.0-inch LCD touchscreen; Well-constructed build; Snappy performance

Lackluster camera performance; Small selection of LG exclusive apps; Short battery life

LG Optimus 2X Review

 

Here is the FoneArena LG Optimus 2X review. And guess what ? It's the first time we have reviewed a Dual-Core phone. Until recently LG was loosing ground in the smartphone race but they surprised the world when they announced the world's first...

Full HD Video Recording; Amazing Display; Fast; HDMI mirroring; Really loud speakers; Decent battery life; Plenty of connectivity options; Good in-call audio quality

microSD slot not hot-swappable; no camera key; OS is not dual core ready

There are few things to complain about the Optimus 2X. There are a lot of things which LG has got right on this phone. There are some things which LG could have done better. It could have had a more premium external casing just to make it look special....

Sporting a large 4" 800 x 480 pixel display, an 8 megapixel primary camera plus a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera and all the usual goodies that you would expect from a top-of-the-line Android phone, the real interest lies under the hood with the...
