Android 4.0 ICS update for LG Optimus 2X now available - read the full textLG Optimus 2X owners in Europe can finally breath a sigh of relief! After nearly half a year of it-will-get-it-it-won't-get-it drama, the former LG flagship finally started receiving its ICS update. The firmware version of the update ROM is V30a. It brings the Ice Cream Sandwich sweetness,...

LG drop the ball BIG time on this one. Waiting year and a half for the ICS update is pretty much no acceptable for what once was their flagship device and first dual core. Instead of focusing on their prime devices they only focus on making more devices. No wonder iPhone is an almost perfect machine. Android It's far better than iOS that's for sure. But LG, HTC, Samsung, Sony really should be up to the game on time. LG updating to 4.0 is kinda of a joke when 4.2 is just around the corner. I think if I want an up-to-date device has to be a nexus or even galaxy S3 (S4 and next gen's). Down side of the nexus devices at least for me are 2 things: no external sd card, and those obnoxious key buttons on screen (c'mon don't take away the precious screen real estate)

firstly, 4.0 is not a great OS version at ALL.
secondly, the optimus 4x HD is quad core and has MANY MANY complaints running 4.0 so i can imagine how terribly this will perform with dual core.

and finally, this is the last update 2x will likely get.. which again is terrible news.

I have the SU660 (Korean cousin of P990), even after 2 years, it can keep up with the main stream dual core phones nowaday (like Galaxy S advance, Xperias, Desire). I updated it to ICS last month and o/c to 1.5ghz, other than the ram, it's a great phone that can keep for another couple years.

ahahahah are you serious? this is a joke right? the word "update" means current. 4.0 is old now! 4.2 is ready to be released and they were working on getting this piece of junk to 4.0 alll this time???????

no wonder why some people get frustrated with owning android phones.. the update rates are pathetic!

This is a rumour I have just spoken to LG and they have advised it will be updated later, and to keep checking on the handset update menu ... complete joke

Yes, because a dated year old Android version makes a difference. They should at at least provided 4.1.2
