Recombu
1 October 2012
  • Conclusion: This is LG’s best phone to date. The LG Optimus 4X HD doesn’t have the most cohesive design or a particularly fantastic camera, but the screen is stunning, the UI charming and games look great, playing back smoothly.
  • Pros: Sharp, bright, large screen, Expandable storage, Removable battery, Charming UI
  • Cons: Uncohesive design, Late release, Poor battery life, Mediocre camera

  • Excerpt: LG first unveiled the Optimus 4X HD back at Mobile World Congress in February. It's been a long time coming, but the Optimus 4X HD is now available in much of the world - even if it's only available outside of a plan (unlocked) here in the U.S.

LG Optimus 4X HD review

theverge.com
6 July 2012
  • Excerpt: 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 consistently brought LG's phones crashing back to earth.
  • Pros: Solid build quality, Some real improvements to Android 4.0, Stellar performance
  • Cons: Mediocre battery life, Huge, Speaker is insanely quiet

LG Optimus 4X HD Review

Digitaltrends
29 June 2012
  • Conclusion: The LG Optimus 4X HD is a wonderful, powerful phone for an appropriate price (unlocked: about $600). It would be a great addition to any US wireless carrier’s docket and is a good choice for anyone in Europe, where it has officially launched. Its largest weakness is simply its forgetability.
  • Pros: Fast quad-core Tegra 3 processor, Easy homescreen customization, Runs Android 4.0, Good overall S3 competitor
  • Cons: Physical buttons hard to reach, No auto brightness, Poor autofocus, low-light camera performance, No 4G LTE (currently 3G only), Bland user interface

22 June 2012
  • Summary: The LG Optimus 4X HD is a phone for hardcore gadget junkies who demand top-drawer specs and don't mind paying a serious wack of cash to get them. They will also have to be happy carrying spare batteries to keep the 4X juiced up, as its quad-core chip takes a toll on battery life.
  • Pros: High-resolution screen; Ships with the latest version of Android.
  • Cons: Poor battery life; Camera has trouble staying focused.

  • Conclusion: The LG Optimus 4X HD is undoubtedly the best Android smartphone that the company has produced to date. It covers the geeky ground with a quad-core Tegra 3 chip, large and vivid HD display and the latest Android 4.0 out of the box.
  • Pros: Most compact of the Android flagships, Carrying regular SIM and microSD slots, plus a removable battery, Handy new features like Quick Memo (note taking), Media Plex (video playback) and Time Machine (frame precapture)
  • Cons: Fiddly camera focus, Automatic brightness adjustment only works from a preset baseline

  • Summary: It was the first company to offer the world a smartphone with dual-core processor and now LG is back in the high-end smartphone battle, with its LG Optimus 4X HD, which touts a quad-core processor. But will it do enough to unseat some very high-profile competition?

  • Summary: LG isn’t the first mobile phone manufacturer you may think of when it comes to the latest smartphones, but the Chinese company has released the Optimus 4X HD which aims to rival the big names including the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3. But will it make the cut?

  • Conclusion: Besides some concerns over video capture performance, this really is a genuine alternative to the HTC One X and Galaxy SIII and proves that the quality of high-end Android phones is getting better all of the time.
