LG Optimus 2X review: Double the potential - read the full textBegun the dual-core revolution has. And there’s no scouting time – the offensive starts with the big guns. The LG Optimus 2X is not just counting on the fancy Tegra 2 name to generate the sales – it is a powerful smartphone through and through...

I think this is more about LG Samsung war. They designed this to be a Galaxy S/S2 killer rather than anything else.

LG should really give up with mobile phones... they just cant keep up with the smart phone market, i work in a mobile phone store and from what i have seen hardly any people are interested in LG these days

LG shot themselves in the foot with this 2X when they released info on the Optimus 3D. Better phone and a possible close price range will make me and lots of others choose the 3D over the 2X.

This phone looks like a desperate move from LG to regain market, but it looks like they failed again.

Great review GSMArena!!!!!It did take some time to get this review (12 pages!) but it was worth the wait.
Still I don't understand why are people comparing this with the iPhone?
It's nice to see that LG has finally done it with this beast,the most powerful android handset to date :)Still I was disappointed to see such poor sound performance :( And that the dual-cores won't help you much in your everyday basis unless you are interested in playing games..a lot...
Makes you think how about buying that Galaxy...
Still,nice work LG!!!!A true beast...

Kind of disappointed in the phone: A day an a half battery..., choppy, poorly compressed 1080p recording... why bother with HIGH DEFINITION that loses details? Poor audio performance WITH headphones?? Hope they read this review and deal with the cons listed. Am sure someone can fit a 1930mAh battery pack on... Smart dial, Yay, can't stand phones without it. and some interesting user experience things like the tap business. If Atrix gets less cons and doesn't cost too much, LG will miss my spend. But either way my decision rests on reviews of the release models of both. Wok'qala.

I think this phone is exellent and if you buy it you won't regret! And about SE Arc, i think it's big and ugly, no second cam, sluggish and ugly ui so no good from SE. And would everyone stop comparing iphone to any new phone that comes! It's really annoing because iphone crap cannot be compared to this beast! And i'm also exited about Lg optimus 3d :D
