I'm from Venezuela, where there's a 400$ limit on what you can spend online (outside of the country of course). I chose this because it's among the best phones you can get for less than 400$ and because the phone is not so big. I don't like phones with screens over 4" because they are more difficult to handle in your hands and don't easily fit in pockets.
-Powerful phone, and you can overclock it and make it more powerful than a SGSII (unless it's overclocked too). I haven't tried very high-end games, but angry birds, world of goo, osmos hd run very smooth.
-Beautiful to look at screen. It doesn't need to be amoled or retina to look beautiful. Also, it's supposed to be scratch resistant but I'm not willing to try it.
-Nearly unbrickable, doesn't have any locks, unlike Motorola Atrix 4g which is in the same price and feature range, and has a locked bootloader (you can hard brick the phone while trying to unlock the bootloader in that one). You just root it (I used UnlockRoot), flash recovery with Rom Manager, and you are ready to install any rom you like. I'd recommend temasek's CM7.2, everything works like a charm with it.
-Replaceable battery, expandable storage via sd card.
-Quadband, it works with any phone operator in any country (as long as they work with GSM sim cards)
-Good cameras, I've made videocalls (gtalk, skype, tango) using the front camera and it has a decent image quality.
-Not too big, and it's thin so it fits in pockets without a problem.
- The only way to turn on the screen to unlock it is the power button, so treat it nicely. There's an option in CM7 roms to make the volume buttons work to wake the phone, but they don't always work. You can also use apps such as "Tap Tap App", which wakes the phone by tapping at the sensor, but again, it doesn't always work.
-The battery lid looks a bit fragile, I wouldn't mess too much with it or it can get loose.
-None other I can think of.

also i may add i think battery life sucks on this build. takes FOREVER to charge and dies quickly.
anyone know where i can find the latest of thie build mentioned above, is there an official site??? greatly appreciated, googling, not finding.
Rob, 16 May 2012specs says 400hours standby lol what a joke thats like 16 days. are they kidding.
i can lo... morehmmm...
my lg 2x already run for more than 12 hour and it still had 47% battery life, i already used it for : music around 2 hours and talk time around 15 minutes and playing games around 30 minutes (bluetooth & wi-fi off)
not to mention it awesome if you combine it with Sony MW600 (LG handfree such a lame not worthy and useless and very dangerous if you used it while driving a motorcycle or bike)
if only LG also takes a consideration for bikers that love hearing music while driving and other consumer taste of music that need their own choice for headset / earbuds and also still in their money range (cable or bluetooth no problem) like sony mw600 (well it still quite expensive but still worthy for bluetooth system, long life battery, radio, and Premium earbuds)
