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...

Even a 10 $ radio can have nice and loud sound. Why can't they spend a few more cents to have a decent and loud speaker in a 500 $
phone ???

In page 8 it states that the phone does not play mkv files. Is that because of the phone or because of the player. Will it play MKV files with other players or not? Thanks

LG Optimus 2X. What a beast.
You can't listen to it when it rings, it has an unintuitive Ui and it's battery won't last (new...) more than a day and a half.

obviously gsmarena has never heard of docomo phones.they have been selling full hd video capable phones since ages,what is actually the use of dual core?its not like you are going to play crisis on it.multitasking between music and web browsing?music and games?even my w810 can do that.dual cores are nothing but trouble.sooner or later,there will be heating and battery issue.seriously,don't buy this phone.just wait for a few more improvements and until dual cores are normal in phones,then it is safe to buy

Just imagine those guyz, An iphone with reception issues, proximity sensor issues, display issues (yellow spots), UI limitations gets a 9/10 while OPtimus 2X, with issues that (mysteriously) only engadget can see gets a 6/10.

Thank u gsmarena,these guyz always gives unbiased reviews.
Android FTW

@ AMH There is like 3 different versions of this phone being sent out. And none of them are the final version that will land in the US.

Galaxy S2 with stock Android, ext4 file system and Voodoo Sound would be badass device.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2011-02-07 21:50 from pu0r - click to readAre you for real?!? GSMArena to say a HTC phone is good? I suppose you just fell from the moon yesterday to ask such a question ;). The HTC DHD wipes the floor with all those phones listed here as a 'competition' to the LG Optimus 2X and that's without any tweaking. Bigger screen, HTC Sense, XDA community support... what else can you want from a phone? Once it gets 2.3 from HTC, you'll see that even the NS is worse. But hey, for someone calling himself "reviewer" the messed up colors of the AMOLEDs (actualy the only real 'color' there is the black) and the ridiculous viewing angles are more important than the size and clarity of the screen.
