Which phone is better: LG Optimus Black (LGP970) or Samsung S8530 WAVEII or LGP 990 optimus 2x. Should i go for Samsung or LG. My requirements are mainly browsing, pdf reading and occasional use of camera. please reply soon... Thanks in advance :)
i had purchased 2X 20 days back.
its good with 2.2 android (took some time to explore it)
but its best in 2.3 gingerbread update
in 2.2 lagging issues were little present but in 2.3 it has been covered.
list of enhancements did in 2.3 when compared to 2.2 are
sms selection cursor is added
suggested words were dissappearing while writing sms, it has been corrected.
when screen ends it has been indicated with flashy color which is good looking
battery life in 2G mode is improved but i havent checked it in 3G mode in new build 2.3(will be posting it once i do)
performance and response time has been improved
no lagging now and screen is good and bright.
few extra live wallpapers and few new tunes are added
rest all same as usual.
i suggest my fellow 2X users to see and update as it is told in procedure.
when updating please bind your hands and sit away from pc(make sure pc not going to sleep and no background program is running)
my intention of saying this is very simple in words but very critical to phone updation.
my friend was using his pc while update was running in background, suddenly his using application hanged and due to which pc got hanged, handset stopped updation and mobile just went blank in seconds.
mobile is dead.he has taken to service centre.
y do we require such a huge risk giving so much huge money.
so please be careful....!
note: stop all the running process,terminate all applications, run only lg software, back previous data(if you require),follow procedure, wait till it says update completed successfully. till then do not even try to touch the mouse or keyboard.
few steps are very crucial so please read again and again,understand and then do it.

MY UPDATE TO 2.3 GINGERBREAD IS BRILLIANT AND WORKING AWESOME.
LG 2X P990 DUAL CORE IS BRILLIANT PHONE.
safii, 22 Dec 2011I am using Optimus 2x for about 3 months and i am really happy with my phone.Obviously its bet... moreHi Safii
I completely agree with you but all i m concerned is about response time, hanging problem (if there is any with Android2.3) and overall software performance. Also can you please suggest a forum etc where i can read about the custom ROMs recommended for this phone instead of android 2.3
Thanks in advance
i love the display, it has total superiority over amoled. BUt the rest of the 2X is a sad story, cant find anything else good about it. Fair enough that it can play full HD video but with that battery life its not much use is it, this fone is no good if not near a charger, and android 2.3 is just as bad on this one as on any other brand or model. Android 2.3 deserves the first price for most unstable and malfunctioning OS ever on a mobile device, or any device. This is the Windows Vista of the mobile world, epic fail.
khan chamakh, 20 Dec 2011its play 1080 video or not plz tell me i want to buy this phone plz plz yes it runs 1080p
One guy wrote "The top edge is very sharp and after 3-5 minutes of phone calls I need to change side because my ear starts hurting". I think that you are just one "nothin' is good for me" motha.....r!

Manu, 21 Dec 2011Hi, I want to buy a android phone. I am confused b/w two choices...xperia neo V and optimus 2x... moreLg Optimus 2x is the best and cheaper android phone in market today.. I've reviewed all the specs of different existing units and trademarks and decided that optimus 2x can perform better compared to other android phones.
safii, 22 Dec 2011Any news when ICS releasing for Optimus 2x..?ICS update is still long a way.May be in Q1 or early Q2 of 2012(as SE has announced that its flagship will be updated to ICS in Q1 of 2012).Better go for custom roms.
had the phone for 2 weeks now and had it upgraded to gingerbread upon purchase. awesome in gaming the tegra 2 chipset is just fantastic, fast performance, the ability to connect via hdmi makes the viewing of media better, it also makes gaming a pleasant experience when viewing on a bigger screen. text and images appear crisp, nice viewing angles and color reproduction on the display. not too bright to strain the eyes. nice feel to the phone, doesnt feel plasticky, it feels solid on the hand. nice complete phone.
the phone is not that back, actually it's pretty good, the 2.2 froyo doesn't fit well in it, so you guys really should try the CM7 or any custom roms. I was all "ohh this crappy phone, holy dual core, what the heck was that freezing etc etc" but now i`m all "wooow, we're almost flying o2x :) sweet mother of jesus"
Tushar, 20 Dec 2011Thanks for your reply Swapnil. I have tried MObo player too, but still facing the same problem... moreoptimus 2x will play choppy 1080p videos.U will not be able to enjoy it.So the best it can handle is 720p.
This phone is 2x the worst phone i ever use. even without using it overnite batt drain out very fast , and the phone hangs easily. internet search gets slower everytime u use it. not recomend to buy big regret.
HAI guys...i bought a 2x..overall its good..can anyone sugest some best free games as well as some apps..
thanx in advance
