Had my G2x since June. On the stock rom it has been better than any phone I've had, including G2. No shutdowns and decent battery life (a day.) I do carry 2 extra batteries for heavy GPS or camera use. This is essential for traveling.
I occasionally have to toggle Airplane mode after getting weak signals around the city, in order to stop freezes and connectivity problems
After being in a low-GPS area I have to restart the phone to get it to reset the GPS and get connected again.
The camera takes amazing pictures but there's an annoying lag. Android 4.0 might fix this?
Other problems I've had are due to my 300 apps installed! Must clean these out. I'll try Gingerbread and ICS soon, and report back.

I would however recommend getting the LG Optimus Black, with slightly polished specs etc. Although this phone is better if you intend to use cyanogenmod and upgrade to gingerbread (and soon ice cream sandwhich quickly) - which does not support the Optimus black.
planning on getting this phone but I want to know if it is any good,someone with this phone can you give me your honest opinion. Thank you!
Saheb, 10 Oct 2011Being an user of iphone4 i can say that nothing cn even beat the apple device !! Its just supe... moreRight and when you're ready to take your training wheels off you can join the rest of us on our actual smartphones. Sorry Iphone isn't a smartphone just look at the majority of the users. Smart doesn't factor in. Spend more get less. i'm sure that makes it much better. /lol
Saheb, 05 Oct 2011Being an user of iphone4 i can say that nothing cn even beat the apple device !! Its just supe... moreYOUR ENTITLED TO YOUR OPINION... but I am a phone tech. I've usex many phones and used to think that iphones were heros. But after owning every iphone and now being a droid lover... the G2X makes the iPhone 4 look like a todller. Very capable but not quite.fully grown up yet. Lol
I am using this phone for almost 3 months or mOre.
The problem i have is the phone always hang N freeze for no reason. I have never drop it at all.
When i have this phone it was 2.2 software, then when it switch Automatically to 2.3 problem with camera. The options on camera are bad, no timer, brightness whn takin picture is also been set with number 1-2-3 not manually slide (which i prefer)

henry, 24 Aug 2011why my g2x heats up so much?, i have to turn it off several times a day, how i can fix that? a... moreTry actually switching the WiFi connection off.. and see if that helps. 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.

Its just supe... moreumm i'm sorry to say but android is a lot better and cleaner because iphone doesn't have some of the apps that the android phone does, and plus the camera quality is 10x's better then the iphone.
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.
