I had a motorola dext, first generation of android phones and the problem is through out from various random testing I found when there is no wifi hotspot available the phone starts to hunt for the closests one and increases the power to the wifi connector as a result heating the phone up.

The battery might sucks but that goes for all of the phones it depends on how you use it. You can do much more with android apps iphone most apps is unlock you have to jailbreak to get it.

All of the new major phones with dual core processors have short battery life, and also freeze up occasionally. The technology isn't there yet. Sure I want a cheap, superfast, application crazy, vibrant, super camera, video cam, PDA, and video recorder all in one right now too. But even if you pay, you won't find one.

It doesn't say anymore if i'm recording in 1080 or taking pictures as 1080. It only says the quality. On videos, there's the high(30) Low(30M) MMS(Low 30s) and Youtube(High 10m). So is high a 1080 video? I don't even know what all these 30M means.

I bought mine and have been using it on Wind in Canada, and it's been fine. I only messed up by doing the 2.3 update through the LG Update software (I agree, I dont like the camera app, and it has a bug while flicking through the camera settings...it wont stop till it hits the end) I do wish the battery life was longer, but again this is a dual-core phone. All in all still an awesome phone.

Be aware that the camera app gets replaced (w/c I'm not particularly happy).

The phones been working flawlessly for me, (bought in canada from Wind Mobile) No call drops, late texts. I am not even having hardware issues like others. Ive had it a week so far no screen bleeding or reboots. The only thing is if you are using it intensively with both 3g and wifi on at the same time while charging from outlet (not usb on pc) it will heat up a bit. But this can be easily prevented.

I got mine on the launch date and it is nothing but troubles. I exchanged mine a couple times and still had problems like battery heating up after used, reboot by itself, network reset by itself causing drop call never had this problem with any other phone for the past 20 yrs of using cell phone, the worst one is the virtual keyboard keep messing up whenever i input something, the other side receiving a totally different set of number than the numbers I input on my end. The last time I call tech support, they said they will not sure if I will get a new G2x if I exchange again since there are more G2x on the market now, I might end up with a refurbished one??????? what the hell, I am not paying for something new so I can exchange for something used bc the product did not work the way it supposed to. They even charged my account for another G2x when it is suppose to be a replacement for the one did not work. I am still this date calling tmobile customer care to getting this fixed bc they keep saying they will make a case and investigate. Now I am stuck with a useless piece of shxt that will update "AROUND THE END OF THE WORLD CORNER" accordiing to tmobile customer care. Sorry tmobile but I don't think I will ever resign my contract again. For all of you who looking to buy this phone, forget about it, don't waste your time. And for those who looking to sign up with tmobile, please do yourself a favor to sign up with other carrier so you don't have to piss off in the future and waste your time typing up something like what i am doing now. Peace, I feel so much better now!

Does anyone know when will they come out the update to android 2.3 for this phone? I had this piece of shxt since they first came out and had so many problems with it. I exchanged 3 times already and still had problems and tmobile rep said that those problems won't fixed until the new 2.3 update come out for this phone.

> In reply to Uncle D @ 2011-06-03 23:08 from 4kVx - click to readMan, you have no idea what you are talking about. Dual core phones are supposed to be more efficient and use LESS battery. No, you should not have to root your phone to get better battery life. I got a brand new sim card with my G2x and still have data issues. The sim card is NOT the problem. The PHONE is the problem. The G2x is plagued with so many bugs, it's not even funny. Anything from wifi/cell data fighting for control, wifi not working at all, GPS not working, battery life indicator is not accurate, phone shuts off or reboots for no reason, signal going from 3-4 bars of 4g to no signal without moving the phone, signal indicator not being accurate... you get the idea. The handling of this phone from launch to the 2.3 update has been epically screwed up by T-Mobile and LG.
Also, if you are going to rep. T-Mobile and say you work for them, learn to type properly. Trying to read your comment gave me a headache.
