i m so happppppppppyyyyy... yuhooooo....
I have the LG Optimus 2x for the last 6 months, my OS is still FROYO 2.2.2, baseband is 1035.21_20110725, kernel 22.214.171.124 and LGP990-v10D version. I updated to this version lately and it solved some of my random phone freeze which take place every several days and still does, bottom line LG does not know to build phones / good software, in addition they are the slowest company on earth while all other provided long time ago the GB 2.3.3 / 2.3.4 like Samsung or Sony Ericson. For me this phone represents very bad experience to include the bad customer service support. It does not matter if the this dual core is the cheapest phone out there if the phone simply stuck time to time and you need to remove the battery in order to restart it. I had my lesson: 1) never buy LG phone (and other equipments), products are far from being good and they never assume accountability as a company 2) Android is still not mature and many bugs, not to forget that on any patch you need to backup everything in order not to lose your data 3) if you want a perfect Smartphone - buy iPhone, the overall user experience is great and it works! 4) once iPhone5 is out I’ll buy it 5) regarding “open” system vs “close” system I think it’s nonsense since it’s a phone and once you install your relevant apps you would like to have 100% availability, not to forget the lack of Market application stability / errors

Yesterday I've "buttoned" (read "fiddled around with") this puppy in a Vodafone shop. Basically it's great and runs very smoothly with its new dual core CPU. It has also an amazing, good camera!!!
The results of the quick hands-on were good, but I'm uncertain a bit about its media capacity (sound). Music was played indeed in good stereo quality, but I've found that loudspeakers aren't so loud as they should be... I was forced to slide up the sound volume to 100% to get a reasonable audition with the media player, the radio, and even on YouTube music videos. Or maybe it's just me the unlucky guy who got hands on a defective phone...?
Now my question: there exists some software piece (something like a driver, or somewhat similar) that can "systemwide" working around the lack of sound loudeness?
It will be helpful if anyone could post an answer, give a tip, or even share its experience regarding this audio problem, and I would be grateful for it. I don't buyed it just because of this reason, but I like it very much otherways. Please answer to help me as I wanna buy it, the only one thing breaking me away from this being that low sound problem.

I am going to buy optimus 2x, because I want device with Adobe Flash 10.3 FULL SUPPORT, and 1080p video playback ! It is the most important thing for me, and Nexus will not smoothly play flash online filmes and 480p videos (dual core cpu is required), I am not speaking 1080p!
But is it possible not to make full working ROM for this powerful devise>? I am shocked!

Hi all optimus 2x users please sign this petition for GB update.
Also tell your friends to sign it who has LG Optimus 2x (P990) or LG Optimus 3D (P920) phones. Thank you for your support.

What other phone with similar spects ( Dual core cpu, 1080p...) could you offer me, and don't forget about price, Optimus 2x is cheapest duale core phone in market! (250 $ in USA, checked price from citizen of USA)
I am not sure there is such kind of powerful phone in market with low price!
If your lg optimus 2x lags, a quick solution is an android app called "fast reboot". Before using any application first click on the fast reboot button and in a couple of seconds you're good to go.
