LG Optimus 2X will not be getting a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich - read the full textThis one is surely much tougher to get over than in the case of Google Nexus One, folks. After all, the latter is almost two years old now. It appears that LG Optimus 2X - officially the first smartphone to feature a dual-core CPU, will not be getting an official update to Google's latest Android...

No ICS (Android 4.0).

DON'T buy LG.....U will regret it!

LG promised "Cloud System" which we are still waiting till today.

LG lures their users and leaves them to guessing.....

First they release a phone with outdated and buggy software then to add insult to injury they say they will not update to ICS. Well, the choice is simple - ditch LG for serious phone makers - Samsung, HTC and Motorola come to mind. These other companies make phones that are worth buying and their high end phones will get ICS. LG should be relegated to the dustbin of the past.

I undersrtand lg refusing to upgrade this phone. I think that eventhough this was the first dual core phone in the market, sales was lagging behind latecomers like samsung galaxy s2 and htc sensation. I think lg just doesn't have the energy anymore. Their mobile division is losing money.

I'm pretty sure lg customers expected this..what is the big surprise? They are known for their lack of support...its also because their phone is cheaper then everyone else's. If you wanted good updates, buy the nexus line or now sony and motorola promising 4.0 for all their 2011 products.

At the end of the day I could care less, I will only get a device that i can put cyanogen on anyways. like my G2x and im pretty sure that there will be support of ics for the G2x from Cyan.

> In reply to [deleted post]LoL I didn't say that.

But you can't deny all the new phones from Motorola are confirmed to have the ICS update...and the other manufactures are very selected to have...

Or you don't learn how to read??? Your poor argue only demonstrate the ignorant people actually you are...

And just because Motorola?? MEGALOL

Just remember Motorola mobile is now Google's property, please, do some research...

In this case the fragmentation is a fault of LG, not Android ... Also, someone tell me which LG cell phone has been good? NONE!

Ridiculous,it's drivers they must offer nothing more!How much do cost some good developers for that?How much they will loose in the end again?People get mad because as my 2x they have same issues and the worst is that LG let us know by saying things like that or by not saying nothing that they don't care for people's REAL experience from their phones! Mess!

Another reason why I don't buy into android products. Their support is not good and your everyday customer is not gonna know anything about rooting and even waste their time to even try. Atleast with symbian, you get major support and wp7. Android is poor when it comes to supporting their ecosystem.

Fragmentation is a problem with i think this time its more to do with LG...becoz its a dual core phone with a high end specs and should be able to support ICS.
Manufactures like LG should use vanilla Anroid if dey r not capable of updating der phones with custom skins...or they should learn from Sammmy and stop giving excuses.
