LG Optimus 2X

 

It's officially the world's first dual-core smartphone but more crucially, is it the best?

Superb build quality ; Packed with hardware features ; Super fast dual-core processor

Only runs Android 2.2 ; No camera shutter button ; Button layout could be better

The LG Optimus 2X is an excellent phone. Its styling is lovely, it packs in oodles of high-end hardware and thanks to its Android OS, it's hugely versatile. However, LG has made a few too many slip ups for it to really hit the top spot. Nontheless,...

LG Optimus 2X review

 

Great hardware, but software niggles let it down

Great screen ; DLNA compatibility ; Powerful processor

Some software issues ; Heavy on battery ; Some poor LG apps

In terms of hardware, we really like the LG LG Optimus 2X. The screen is excellent, it’s got a fantastic camera, video is great and it’s very quick.

LG Optimus 2X Review

 

Fast, smooth and seriously impressive, only an out-of-date OS and poor battery life stand between the 2X and top marks

Early reports of LG’s dual-core smartphone lamented its unstable operating system, but now it’s had an update can it follow through on its super-power promise?Yes, generally. The Optimus 2X is bliste

LG Optimus 2X review

 

Will the world's first dual-core smartphone prove to be a powerhouse?

Dual-core power ; Excellent price ; Great screen ; Slick HDMI mirroring ; Brilliant music player

Not as polished as some ; Flash impedes browser performance ; Didn't play some videos ; Disappointing camera/video recording ; Quiet speakers

We knew it as the LG Star originally, and we waited impatiently for a chance to really put it through its paces. Now, the world's first Tegra 2 smartphone, the LG Optimus 2X, has arrived for our delectation, sporting Android 2.2.

LG Optimus 2X Review: In Depth

 

LG's Optimus 2X was the first dual-core Android phone to be announced this year and provides with a taste of things to come. It's got a cracking camera that can record Full HD video (1920 x 1088)…

LG Optimus 2X review

 

LG's Optimus 2X is the world's first dual-core smartphone, but it certainly isn't the only one we'll see in 2011. The Samsung Galaxy S2 is already out, and HTC and Apple should have dual-core devices on sale soon. The 2X may have been the first to...

Fast gaming performance and some interesting features can't save LG's Optimus 2X from feeling like a rush job.

LG Optimus 2X Review

 

With all of the Smartphones available in the world today, finding the one for you can be a hard task. The LG Optimus 2X houses an 8MP camera capable of 1080p HD recording and a 1GHz dual-core processor whilst running Android 2.2; some pretty awesome...

Amazing camera with a wide range of effects and settings

Battery life

Overall, there are definite areas for improvement with the LG Optimus 2X, but there are some rather impressive areas such as the camera quality, fast and smooth operating of the software on top of the Tegra 2 chip, and also high quality 4-inch screen...

LG Optimus 2x review -

 

Dual-core processor, four-inch display and eight-megapixel camera that is capable of recording video in high definition

The look and feel of the phone lacks the wow factor of some of its contemporaries

LG Optimus 2X (LG-P990) Review

 

So dual-core, do you need it? No. Should you want it? Yes! Any power user or any smart phone user in fact should really look into upgrading to a smart phone with a dual-core chipset inside it. Why? Well everything is so much faster, your device will be...

LG Optimus 2X review

 

A dual core smartphone with Iphone killing looks

Beautifully built, great display, very fast thanks to its Tegra 2 chip

Backlight auto-adjust doesn't work well, especially outdoors, and there is a little gap that collects pocket detritus

LG hasn't dominated the mobile phone landscape in the way Samsung has, but it seems determined to grab some attention with its Optiumus 2X aka the LG-P990.
