Is there any chance you will re review the HTC One X and the LG; at least the battery life now that it's had a FW update, as I think the battery life has been improved.

You did re review the SGS2 when it got ICS.

Unless you're saving a re review for when HOX and SGS3 get 4.1 FW of course

> In reply to cba1986 @ 2012-09-12 18:54 from P9aZ - click to readWhy should they do that? It was a fair shootout, with all three devices running on ICS. Of course, it isn't worth mentioning the other two phones, because they're rubbish compaired with these three quad cores.

And S3 lovers, if you want to pay 200$ more for a phone that's nearly the same as 4X HD then do it ftw. But don't try to overrate your phone only because you own it. Let's remember, LG is the innovator in this smartphone market, they had the first phone that supports a DivX platform, the first complete touch screen phone, the first dual core phone, the first 3D phone, the first quad core phone, the first phone with 2 GB of RAM...have I made myself clear now? LG Optimus 2X was launched too early, and the phone wasn't really optimized, but it wasn't that bad either. Now when it will have ICS on it(somewhere in september), it will rival with any competitor, and S2 will have no chance. Too bad that they didn't update it faster, because Samsung took an undeserved lead in the smartphone market. Let's not forget again, who makes the displays for the majority of the phones? That's right, you guessed it, LG. And who says that LG products are crap is an ignorant. Maybe they are a little slow in their phone updates, but they are gaining ground very fast. In terms of competitive phones, if you want to compare Samsung with LG, Samsung comes with only 3 phones, S2, S3 and Note. LG comes with 2X, 4X HD, Prada, Vu, 3D, and not the forget the long awaited Optimus G, who will clearly beat all the phones at this point on the market. That's why Samsung has to come with something really special in order to compete with LG's Optimus G.

Nice to see Tegra doing the same thing as Qualcomm by manipulating the Benchmarks tests! This proves how Benchmarks aren't reliable anymore.
How it gives better results in benchmarks and lags like that in real life?

I think benchmarks should done now on speed of file copying and boot time and lag free on games and on graphic standard...etc

The NVIDIA Tegra 3 is just excellent for tablets with huge battery power ,not phones with small batteries.

The Lg Optimus 4x is a joke! It has a powerful battery(it has more mAh then the S3), but the S3's battery life is much better.

Let's be honest people...the benchmark results were really close, too close to make a difference in the real life. But if you want a phone that can match even the allmighty overrated SIII, get yourself an LG Optimus 4X HD. It's the cheapest and it offers the best experience. Forget LG's problems with updating their devices, I believe that with this phone they eventually realised what their clients want from them and this can only be good for us, the consumers. This is a cool device and it deserves every penny. From now on, we will see a change in smartphone world domination...look out Samsung, here comes LG!
