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...
