They havent even put it against the CBD which (if you've held a C6-01 and Galaxy S side by side) is just plain better. Even GSMarena claim it has the best colours, and that hasnt changed even in the midst of the AMOLED Plus display

Is this a match up of the two phones or a preview/semi-review and advertisement of the Samsung phone? Cause all I read is that when the Samsung phone gets behind the LG one is that its because its "pre-release/production."

In game comparison video LG was better in many points!
It's device has the negative and positive characteristics.
LG is just a good phone? For me is the first with dual core, and LG didn't rush to revise the possessor power to 1.2Mhz cause afraid HTC Evo 3D!
Really is HTC in rush due to free glass 3D screen?

I own an Optimus 2X. My first utint was a DOA beacause of bad call quality and bad battery life. My second untit has another issues. Network disappears and I have to reboot the phone. So basically dont buy this DEMO phone if You want a stable smartphone. Home screen lags more than my HTC Hero.

The galaxy s II hasn't been released yet but it's expected to be about a 100 euro more expensive than the O2X. And the first thing I did with mine was rooting it ^^

I've really enjoyed it.The one thing that stood out was the brightness level it was minimum at the white areas so i think samoled+ will bring nice battery backup.

> In reply to joonius @ 2011-04-09 01:42 from qbYL - click to readThe screen on the sgs2 truly is crispier, but I think the colors are oversaturated plus the table shows higher candela values for the lg which should make it's display easier to read from in sunlight. Web browsing and video recording is way better on the sgs2, but I think the performance in those categories is strongly dependant on the android version. allegedly 2.3 will have/has better support for tegra. As for the 4.27" i don't like where this the-bigger-the-better-screens thing is going (mobiles need to fit into pockets). Concerning the price I do think the sgs2 will be much more expensive than the optimus 2x is. In germany for example the prices for the optimus 2x are comparable to those of the sgs1. All that and the fact that it's not out yet is why I don't really agree with the sgs2 being the better handset.

Samsung GSII is much better almost on all aspects. We have to remember about the limit cap that Samsung put on their phones. I currently have GSI and with the lag fix it has results comparable to those presented by GSII without it, so imagine what this phone is really capable of, especially that here it is the model with 1Ghz.
Can't wait for the release :)

Can't wait till end of this month...

The Optimus is a pioneer much like the Moto Xoom. I think a better fight will be between the overclocked SGS2 vs the O3D. One is overclocked and the other a dual-channel. One have the best Amoled screen while the other the first 3D screen on a mobile phone. Now that will be a more exciting fight.

Those of you complaining how it not objective... the SGSII clearly did better than the Optimus 2X on the parts they mentioned like the screen, web browsing, and the video recording... maybe you guys skipped all the videos or something.

Only thing that's not mentioned is the pricing but how can they compare when pricing for SGSII isn't released yet?
