LG Optimus 4X HD Review

 

LG had announced the Optimus 4X HD in February this year, but it took a couple of months to land on Indian shores. The Optimus 4X HD is the company's finest offering yet. It has got everything you would need - and want - in a smartphone. Yes, it's LG's...

The Optimus 4X HD was put through a set of synthetic benchmarks and we compared it with similar priced handsets. Samsung’s Galaxy S III was a clear winner, as can be seen from the images below, but the other handsets were all placed at a joint second.

LG Optimus 4X HD: Tegra 3 Handsets Stay Global

 

After a string of disappointing devices that have been poorly received by the market, the current release cycle is very important for LG to re-establish itself as a maker of high-end and high quality Android phones, competing on the razor-edge of...

More Info LG Optimus L7 review LG Optimus 4X HD unveiled LG Optimus 4X HD hands-on LG has an ongoing smartphone problem: despite a few valiant efforts (the G2x comes to mind) the company continues to live in the shadow of rival Samsung. Most of this...

Refined, well-crafted design ; Impressive performance ; Unobtrusive and simple skin

Display misses the mark ; Frustrating camera software ; Underwhelming battery life

LG's Optimus 4X HD may not have toppled Samsung's Galaxy S III and HTC's One X from the quad-core throne, but it's definitely made it to the royal court.

LG Optimus 4X HD review

 

LG's recent efforts in the US phone market have been somewhat... underwhelming. The company's been a stalwart supporter of 720p displays, which is great, but some combination of poor software, underpowered internals, and bad build quality have...

Solid build quality ; Some real improvements to Android 4.0 ; Stellar performance

Mediocre battery life ; Huge ; Speaker is insanely quiet

For once, LG gets almost all the pieces right

LG Optimus 4X HD: A Quad-Core Android Phone

 

The LG Optimus 4X HD ($560 unlocked; price as of 7/5/12) is LG's first foray into the quad-core world. Announced some four months ago at the Mobile World Congress, the 4X HD is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, but that's not its only highlight....

Powerful quad-core processor ; Crisp, clear display ; Runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich with NFC support

Camera isn't as good as competitors ; Optimus 3.0 UI is a bit clunky ; Build feels a bit cheap

The LG Optimus 4X HD is a very powerful phone, but the software and camera are lacking.

LG Optimus 4X HD

 

With the smartphone revolution, companies like Motorola, HTC, and Samsung have seized new market share, but if you were to ask someone at LG, they'd probably tell you things were better when phones flipped open. LG was one of the top three mobile phone...

Fast quad-core Tegra 3 processor ; Easy homescreen customization ; Runs Android 4.0 ; Good overall S3 competitor

Physical buttons hard to reach ; No auto brightness ; Poor autofocus, low-light camera performance ; No 4G LTE (currently 3G only) ; Bland user interface

The LG Optimus 4X HD is a wonderful, powerful phone for an appropriate price, however we can't recommend it over devices like the One X or Galaxy S3.

LG Optimus 4X HD P880 review: Firing on all fours

 

Last year LG was in pole position in the dual-core game with the Optimus 2X. It was the phone everyone looked up to, before there was a Galaxy S II and before there was an HTC Sensation. There was obviously no rush this time although, to be fair, LG...

Quad-band GSM and quad-band 3G support ; 21 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 4.7" 16M-color True HD-IPS capacitive touchscreen of 720p resolution (720 x 1280 pixels), ~312 ppi; Gorilla glass ; Android OS v4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich with Optimus UI v3.0 ;...

No native video calls ; Video recording has autofocus issues ; Tegra 3 CPUs are built on 40nm process, while Exynos uses 32nm ; Disappointing audio output

The LG Optimus 4X HD couldn't repeat the feat of its dual-core predecessor, which had the spotlight all to itself for a good few months last year. Yet, it may turn out more fortunate than the Optimus 2X. The first dual-core phone made a reasonably big...

LG Optimus 4X HD (unlocked)

 

Normally I'm not a jealous person. When my friend gets something on my wish list, you won't hear a peep from me. But after reviewing the LG Optimus 4X HD, I'm indeed "jelly" as kids say these days.

The LG Optimus 4X HD 's quad-core processor makes it incredibly zippy, it runs on Android 4.0, and it has NFC capabilities and a stunning HD-IPS LCD display.

The 4X HD can be unwieldy for small hands, the quality of its output speaker is less than stellar, and its UI isn't as elegant as the original ICS.

With its lightning-quick CPU, newest Android version, great touch screen, and NFC chip, the LG Optimus 4X HD is firing on all cylinders.

LG Optimus 4X HD vs HTC One X

 

As you can surely tell, today we are comparing the LG Optimus 4X HD and the HTC One X – two top-of-the-line smartphones that have quite a lot in common. The two run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, which may not be the platform's latest...

So there you have it, guys. The LG Optimus 4X HD and the HTC One X are two well-made devices – with performance so similar that we cannot really pick a clear winner between the two. No matter which one you choose, chances are that you will be impressed...
