LG Optimus 2X Review Roundup: Fantastic Hardware, Questionable Execution
2 November 2011
Excerpt: Ah yes, dual-core smartphones are no longer just a sweet, geeky dream; the LG Optimus 2X, the world's first Tegra 2-powered handset, is finally here. And with an amazingly thin design, an 8MP camera capable of 1080p video recording, and HDMI mirroring, the device has a lot going for it. But does it live up to these high expectations?
LG Optimus 2X P990 – Not as Loaded as You'd Expect
29 October 2011
Excerpt: Enter the Guinness Record holder, the first of its kind – 1GHz Dual Core Processor toting mobile handset the LG Optimus 2X. It is designed to thrill with super speed and HD content support for playback and capture all of this with a relatively affordable price tag of just Rs. 27,490. Too good to be true? Maybe. But read on to find out more. Form Factor The Optimus 2X has no peer in the power department, at the moment.
Conclusion: The LG Optimus 2X is a seriously powerful piece of kit. We love the 8-megapixel camera with it’s settings and Full HD recording, and we love the HDMI-out option. It’s not without its flaws; call quality is iffy and you will want to watch the battery. It also remains to be seen how well the 2X will compare long term - if you’re undecided about which dual-core Android phone to go for we’d advise you to wait for now.
LG Optimus 2X review – let’s see what a dual-core phone can really do
14 July 2011
Conclusion: The LG Optimus 2X is certainly the phone that should have LG moving back into the black after its dismal performance last year. It’s in a completely different league from any other LG phone, and in a performance league all of its own – at least for the moment! Its giant dual-core processor gives it features such as 1080p recording and HDMI mirroring that simply couldn’t be achieved in 2010, making this the first of a new generation of stand-out smartphones that are...
Excerpt: The LG Optimus 2X is one of the first Android phones to boast a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 1GHz processor with an impressive eight-core GeForce graphics processing unit to boot. We’re talking top of-the-line hardware in this smartphone, although unfortunately this particular model doesn’t support any North American 3G or 4G connectivity.
Pros: + Dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 processor and graphics chip
Cons: - Very few parts of the OS and software seem to make use of the dual-core processor
Summary: The Optimus 2X with the 1 GHz dual core processor offers a definite performance improvement over the smartphones powered by 1GHz single core phones. While it feels just same as the likes the HTC Incredible S and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc under normal usage, but take it to the next level with gaming, and the extra power does make the difference.
Pros: Phone feels faster than the single core processor ones, particularly when pushed, IPS LCD Display is quite vivid, 1080p HD video recording added to a good camera, HDMI out lets you connect to external display
Cons: Looks understated to the extent that they are boring
Excerpt: My latest handset purchase is the LG Optimus 2X , dubbed as the world’s first dual-core Android smartphone which made it to the Guinness Book of World Records. Check out our full review of the Optimus 2X after the jump and see if it lives up to expectations and hype.

Excerpt: It’s funny how quickly technology shrinks, speeds up and then hits us all at once. There have been so many announcements recently of upcoming Super phones, it’s hard to keep up. One current device I had not had a chance to play with for any length of time was the T-Mobile G2x and I thought it was about time to take a closer look.
