Please help me choose between LG Optimus 4X and Sony Xperia TX.

What I'm looking for in these phones are:
1. longer battery life for average usage. This is how i use my phone per day
- moderate call & text
- for watching at least 1 to 2 movies a day
- about 1 to 2 hours of internet on wifi
- viewing/reading a lot of pdf or j.peg files
- if i have time maybe play little games or play music

2. it doesn't matter how smooth the phone is but at least there should be no/less lag.

Thanks.

ah wel its still valuable info :P

it also seems that XDA is having some serious issues some of the pages cannot be loaded at all.

anyway heres the direct link to the hacker that lets you install though LG software (easy solution).

http://forum.xda-developers.co...hp?t=2134192

and this is a link to the hard way :

http://forum.xda-developers.co...hp?t=1861854

(says its for the 2x speed but seems to work for the 4x aswell.

sadly you need to find your won source for the rom files as its removed from the site. but theres some sites on google that should be easy to find.


other then thats theres no much i can helpp you with as ive not had the need to do this myself :)

> In reply to Grod @ 2013-02-15 20:03 from pwT5 - click to readanother thing you should try is go to the add widged .
then scroll to the one with the settings icon and is named settings.
then drag it to the homescreen where it opens a list select battery there.

this gives you a shortcut to the battery menu plus 1 crucial extra feature.
now open the widged and you will see what you normaly see but the graphic is on top instead of at the bottum.
on top of that the graphic can be clicked so click it.
you now get a new page.

on top you see the tabel you can ignore this this isnt the importaly feature here.

on the bottum you see the lines here you can see where the phone is on the screen is on and so on.
phone on and screen on are the 2 that matter here possibly in combination with 3g.

if you see a stripe or bar where the phone is on but the screen is off it meens you most likely have a app draining your battery.
if not something else is the case here.

if you would be so friendly to after a night make a screenshot of this (you can do this trough quickmemo) and post it on the web somewhere we could help you see if theres something wrong or that it looks right.

> In reply to jmd @ 2013-02-15 19:18 from vIgZ - click to readyour bad point 1 and 2 are normal and is like this on EVERY smartphone outthere with this much power.

point 3 just is not true the vollume and ringtone sound is just great i have it on half power as its so freaking loud.

and for point 4 did you even update the phone to v10h?
my camera is as fast as a phone gets (its contrast based AF after all this is and always will e shite)
and ive never seen a missed focus shot so far so not sure what your doing but its not the phones fault.

Using the phone for past 15 Days.. Here the opinion! Mostly based on my personal preferences

The Good:
----------
1. Excellent Display. (Natural colors which is of my taste actually)
2. Smooth, Clean UI (No bloatwares/or s/w Overkill. Pre-installed apps can be disabled. Will not be good for some people who prefer glamorous UIs)
3. Signal reception and Call Audio quality is excellent.
4. Excellent 2G/3G Talk time.
5. Good battery backup for day-to-day use.(Can take you 2 days with normal/moderate use)
6. Fantastic browsing speed
7. Excellent Pre-installed Organizer package (Polaris Office, Quick Memo, Timer, World Clock and Stopwatch)
8. Dolby mobile over headphone is good.
9. Programmable NFC tags included in the package.
10. Excellent Camera for people who know how to make good out of it!!!

The Bad:
--------
1. Bad battery backup for heavy users (Gaming,Video playing)
2. Over heating issue with Gaming
3. Poor speaker quality for a Premium Range phone.
4. Bad automatic camera performance and slow operation. (You need to tune and focus carefully to get the right picture)

install a battery monitoring app and see what app keeps your phone awake an get rod of it no matter what it is its not worth it and theres most likely a better alternative.

> In reply to Grod @ 2013-02-14 19:53 from pwT5 - click to readyes goo to XDA forums and look for some guides there.

theres 2 things you can do:

- flash a euro open firmware by flashing a .kdz the hard way

- flash a .kdz by tricking the pc tool fro lg in thinking its another file (theres a program for it on the forum there but its my bedtime now :)

good luck with it.

> In reply to solly85 @ 2013-02-14 21:29 from Nu$D - click to readthat used to be the case but any good ips screen now is as good :)
the thing most people now like is the saturation of the screen wich is just tuned TO high to get the so called HD look.
but in reality those colours dont excise and thus make the thing you see FAKE which can be horrible when watching pictures.
people gotten to like the oversaturation but its is and always be unrealistic.
grass never is that green and the sky never is that blue thats all software tuning in the device and not the screen.
LG could also do that just like samsung with there amoleds but they stay treu to real colours and i thank them for it.
colours should be realistic not oversaturated.
