  • Summary: So i have had this phone for 3 years, on T mobile and the Straight talk after i unlocked it. I always liked it. I would drop this phone constantly almost on a daily basis but never crack the screen still perfect to this day and i have tile and concrete floors. Using any app for more than 5 mins and you phone will over heat and  shut off. put in your pocked screen off ect and will burn you gets so hot...
  • Pros: can't break screen!, aperance, friendly interface, easy to unlock
  • Cons: gets burning hot with apps, randomly heats up when not in use. random shut off

Best phone I've had so far!

  • Summary: Best cell phone I've had from T-Mobile (I've owned the BB Pearl, LG Optimus T, and now the G2X) I've had friends who have seen my phone and were wowed by it (Iphone users, Sprint 3-D phone users, etc) I just go around saying this is T-Mobiles answer to the Iphone. I access my music from Amazon.com on it, I manage my sellers account on it, overall it's like my mini pc (Sad part is my phone is wayyyyy more powerfull than my home pc!
  • Pros: Bright hi-def screen (Some of theTegra games look better than some of my 360/PS3 games!) I use wi-fi when at home and when I'm out and about I usually get a good 4G signal. GPS and Wi-Fi hotspot features have been a godsend. Camera takes good pics.
  • Cons: Some pics are hard to see cause the flash is so bright. Sometimes the phone will lag badly (Just remember to close windows your not using, it helps!) The fact that it will probably be obsolete two months after I bought it :(

  • Excerpt: Well the phone was definitely an improvement hardware wise, except from the s.lcd screen, i wish they wouldve put amoled on it, but other than that was great. But what really crack me up was the fact that it was still on froyo in 2011, it sucks when this high end phones come out with lower OS versions than ur old phone.

my first smart phone!

  • Excerpt: after 24 days of use i have found that overall i give this a 8.5/10. Pros: my first smartphone so the change is a welcome move =P SO.... i love the flash and internet browsing. ive used firefox on here but i seem to prefer the stock browser but nonetheless the browsing is great!. i like the screen and its brightness and love everything about android. the call quality is fine but then again i text much much more.
  • Pros: great cameras for pictures, good call quality, smooth processing, good internet speed and great browsing!, 32GB support, battery is fine for myself and very light browsers
  • Cons: low vibration on calls and texts, no repeat notification for missed calls, texts, notifications (theres an app to fix it mentioned above), low volume on calls, swype seems to put in random commas and periods and save minor typos like "abd" instead of "and", battery will suck for heavy heavy browsing

More of a Computer, less of a phone

  • Excerpt: I bought the LG G2x phone after reading reviews from multiple sites and reading the specs like everyone else and was floored by the "everything but the kitchen sink" approach.So, I am somewhat surprised to not see any reveiws that criticize the comms (communication features) of this phone. But after spending about 3 weeks with it (my wife also got one after having a Samsung Eternity which had good reliability but poor UI), I became somewhat disenchanted.
  • Pros: Fast Performance, Good multi-processing, Pretty fast 4g (1.7Mpbs), ridiculous WiFi speed (5-6Mbps), Really great GPS., Mediocre Battery life (about 1 day w/ medium use).
  • Cons: Bluetooth does not always connect even when it is already paired to a device., Both of our phones have refused to connect inside buildings many times to either the phone or data., The phone connection itself is pretty solid but signal fluctuates back and forth sometimes.

blazingly fast with some minor flaws

  • Excerpt: Ive had my LG optimus 2x speed (branded as T-Mobile G2x in the states) for about two months now and i have to say im more than pleased. This phone is the first consumer smart phone with a dual-core processor and it definately shows. The phone is very fast when browsing the menu and interface and after a few days my old iphone 3g felt slow and sluggish in comparison. The HD (720p) filming is fun, but like most 720p cameras turns choppy if you move while filming too much.
