@Wan, thanks for telling us the sincere truth.
Some people enjoy ingenuity. some could've gotten a defective unit.
Please i want to ask you something. Do you have adobe's flash installed on your phone?
If yes, how were you able to do it?
This phone is bomb, so fanboys beware cos your ass might get blown any minuite in the wrong teritory.

Samsung or Lg, they are simply brandnames.
Note2, s3, galaxy whatever, they are built with different categories of people in mind just like the opt4x hd. Now pause...think this way.
What would i want to use this device mostly for?
Tips:
browsing, music, taking photos, and maybe watchin movies.
Here samsung is mostly appraised for their widescreen devices although not the best in color reproduction, and sometimes for their good camera features and quality, but that's not to say Lg isn't good in itself instead what you intend to do mostly with it has great bearing here. You must choose based on the features that suits you most as a person and not confusing yourself with which of the phones has the most outstanding features.
since samsung seems to be doing just fine in most of the aforementioned categories though, Lg does have it's champ sides too.
This phone for example has been tasted side by side with a s3 and it manages to outdo the s3 with its 4.7" display which has the best colour so far. This phone also runs on "nvidia tegra3 processor"! You know what that means...?
Ok, it means you can enjoy console-like games on your phone plus numerous graphical magics when running graphical apps.
One other great side of lg is their design. Have you taken time to look at the optimus 4xhd Perhaps in the youtube review or in sample photos?
No one can deny the fact that the design is simply a dealbreaker for samsung's...
Although both these phones look alike specswise speaking, they stil have differeces.
bottomline: get any one that will serve you most. and please stop posting questns evrywhere.
Soon optimus G mostly likely will launch if not already launched and some people will still want to inquire which one should i buy?.
That reminds me.
@Anonymous, you were asking the difference betwen dual and quad cores?
Their isn't big difference between the two for now.
But to make it short. if you need a stronger battery android device that will serve u very well and not for show offs get a dual core as it's still usable and apparently will continue to be until whenever google goes bankruptcy...
But if u want to play in the big boys league then go get a tested-wellworking opt4xhd cos that's what i'll get soon. Just waiting for the market price to depreciate a little in nigeria.
Currently it still sales for nearly $600 in my country.
If you found this post helpful then rate it please?

Sold Galaxy Note - got tired of pentile and big size :)
Had a choice between Galaxy Note 2 and Optimus 4x HD.
Looked at both and has been disappointed with Galaxy Note 2: the screen is not the same pentile, but still it's worse, than pure IPS in text readability.

So, I have chosen Optimus. And screen is really amazing.
What is bad:
battery is still under question. I have installed 10f and removed all system bloatware, like LG services, etc.
Still, in night idle mode, with data connection turned off and no any sync it drains a lot: 10-15% per night. I had only 1-2% on Galaxy Note custom ROM.
Will investigate further, cannot believe it's a SENTENCE :-O
Another disappointment is a sound chip (it uses some weird MAXblablabla chip). Sound quality even in good headphones is noticeably worse, than for instance in Galaxy Note (and moreover Galaxy Note 2) and in iPhone5. A little bit better when equalizer with profile, close to "rock" is on. But nevertheless mid frequancies are a mess (not well-separated) and sound is not so crystal & tasty as I'd like to.

Weird notice: I have run dvdrip video and noticed only 1 core is used. But mustbe more are used only with some special proggies.

> In reply to confused @ 2012-10-22 06:42 from JF5C - click to readLG 4x HD vs note 2 = completely different device for different people if you need the big screen for something get that otherwise dont.

LG 4x hd vs samsung S3 take whatever device you think look best if you dont have a brand preferance or like/dislike specivic features.

i can give you y reasons to take the lg but those are mine and you might think differently so try them out and buy what you like.

The design is one of the best on the market, LG is known for its design, so you have messed up badly with this one. Choppy browsing? OMG!!! Search the web for Optimus 4X HD reviews and you will see that the browsing is one of this phone's best features, it has no lag whatsoever(I'm sure you accessed a very big website and you didn't let it load, and immediately you scrolled or pinched-to-zoom. This happens on all smartphones, because it isn't a PC, it needs to load first). LG copying Samsung? You make me laugh...who is first on launching everything in this smartphone market? LG, everybody knows. Then how could they copy Samsung, when they launch their phones at least half a year after LG launches their phones first? You're an utter ignorant and a lousy fanboy. With the icons and the UI is personal preference, if you like other phones' UI, ok.

I just bought an Optimus 4X HD yesterday, and it is indeed an AWESOME phone! However, I noticed that there is some lagging when I was scrolling in the Music library and Video library.... Currently on v10e Singapore version, so may I ask if anyone of you have this problem? If its just mine then I will try to update it to v10f and try~
Thanks!

I tried the phone , first thoughts 1.out dated design , 2.choppy browsing experience 3. A copy cat of allot of features from Samsung touch wiz especially camera features 4. Icons design is a big disappointment I would give it 3.5/10

Dual core 1.5 GHz krait with Snapdragon S plus is doing much better, able to transmit 41mbs 3g data speed,
capable of video recording even upto 1080 per@60fps.

> In reply to Zabuza @ 2012-10-21 05:19 from JF5C - click to readi assume you ment rom instead of ram but either ay you cannot change it fornow as the phones bootloader is still not unlocked and it looks like it wont happen at all at this point.

but if you want your android to look different or have some other features id say go and check out some boot loaders.
you can find several for free in the store.
they add different slide effects and other stuff and if you dont like it you can simply remove them :)

dont install more then 1 at a time tho i had some issues with that so its better to check them out 1 by 1 just to be save.

as for disabling cores this is still in a experimental stage theres tonnns of app that can do it but only few that can do it without root.
but atm it seems to give more problems then that it helps you as your trying to double manage the cores (android already tries it also) which can lead to crashes.
so fir it to work perfectly you need a custom rom without the core mangement build in.
