LG Optimus 2X Review: In Depth
13 October 2011
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.
Excerpt: It is true that all phones come with their own selling points and their own ‘claim to fame’. However, what is also a fact is that almost none of them can lay claim to what the LG Optimus 2X has- the world’s first smartphone with a dual core processor.
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: Like some geekier version of the Cold War, the mobile phone arms race of 2011 has manufacturers stockpiling as much brawn as possible into the limited space of a handset. And with its G2x Android smartphone , LG has outed itself as a superpower.
Pros: HDMI-out and DLNA compatibility make for cozy communication with peripherals and HDTVs. Expandable micro SD to 32 GB leaves room for tons of tunes.
Cons: Non-skinned interface without the latest version of Android (Froyo, not Gingerbread) makes us sad. Screen forebodingly froze up on us twice during testing, requiring reboot.
Summary: Here's the deal: We absolutely love the T-Mobile G2x. The combination of this device's dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and pure Android OS make it the fastest smartphone we've ever tested. It ripped through our benchmarks and games, and it also offers surprisingly speedy 4G data performance.
Summary: There has been a lot of hoohaa about smartphones taking on the next generation of technology, coming in with dual-core processors that promise faster speed, an especially essential component for crunching the increasing multimedia content smoothly.
Conclusion: It feels more sturdy than the Samsung Galaxy S and looks nicer too. It's largely lag-free and has reasonable battery life as well. The niggles we have are all quite minor, and certainly didn't make us love the handset any less. µ
Pros: Beautifully built, great display, very fast thanks to its Tegra 2 chip.
Cons: Backlight auto-adjust doesn't work well, especially outdoors, and there is a little gap that collects pocket detritus., There's no excuse for a powerful new smartphone running Android 2.2.
LG Optimus 2X P990 – Not as Loaded as You'd Expect
7 December 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.
Conclusion: Finally there is the battery. Even with a capacity of 1500mAh it may struggle to provide a full day of life if you want to make the most of all the richness on offer here. There is a large screen and hungry processor to feed, after all.
Excerpt: The LG Optimus 2X is one of the new breed of GT cell phones, in this case powered by a dual-core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, complemented by a 3D graphics hardware accelerator. That's more than twice the processing speed of some of the top-shelf smartphones that have recently been released, plus...
