In china the price of LG optimus 2x dropped to almost 500 US dollar, and Samsung Galaxy S2 costs 900 US dollar for pre order, i dont think there should not be head to head comparison, as per other websites LG 2x is good phone, but Samsung galaxy S2 is best phone, but for good and best i need to pay 400 US dollar????????????

What good is a fast GPU if it has no support from game developers, I mean nVidia.

I have searched some info about a "Super AMOLED" and its "Burn-In" effect and seams that about 35% of "Super AMOLED" users are telling that their screens are affected by Burn-In effect. And that is pretty sad!

It would be useful to know more official news about "Super AMOLED Plus" lifetime and "Burn-In" effect, I think it may be a big disadvantage! :(

something is not right with the galaxy s II's gpu.the galaxy s runs shrek cart way smoother and samsung themselves boasted bout their new gpu, am sure after some tweaks its true power would be visible to see.

The Galaxy S II is nice, but really, you can get the LG 2X now on ebay for around the $600 mark outright, as opposed to the SGS II which is going to retail for about the same price as a 3G Xoom tablet ($899)

So, really, what are you getting for that extra $300?? Just a bigger, better screen??

IMO, the LG 2X (although its an LG) is by far the best value for $$

> In reply to Niram @ 2011-04-12 12:44 from MKLm - click to readMali 400 gpu it's much superior to SGX543MP2 and to Tegra 2 gpu. Wait for the optimization of the software of this gpu. Yuo still not saw nothing. When the final version of the Galaxy S II appear in the market you will see if i haven't reason.

I dunno, this review seems to favor the Galaxy SII. I feel like you didn't speak on the LG phone at all. More like "How the LG doesn't meet up with the SII specs". I wan another opinion.

For those who are asking why mobile phone need such processor like a 1.2GHz dual-core or even higher ?

1) It need for such things like a Full HD Video Recording and Playback.
2) For a real Adobe Flash support.
3) For fast Web Page loading (processing).
4) For fast photo/video gallery thumbnail preview generation.
5) For faster applications loading.
6) For fast switch between apps and keep them running in the background.
7) For latest mobile games.

It would be nice to have the Atrix go head to head as well. Better still once all the phones have had there 2.3 upgrade can we have another review?

Also there was no mention that I noticed about the amount of multi touch points each phone can register. I believe the LG is actually multi touch and the Samsung is Dual touch which is fine for pinch and zoom but doesn't offer any competition to the iPhone 4

Mali 400 the gpu of GS2 is the biggest let down of the device. It is clearly the slowest gpu out there. Samsung should have gone either with tegra 2 or PowerVR SGX543MP2.
