Shitty for music unless at a high volume/impedance; shittily-shielded soundcard.
The 3" screen's a bit too small to draw on, but it works for the most part. The phone doesn't easily detect the edges of the touchscreen when it's being pressed on.
The hardware buttons Call/Home/End are becoming a bit shitty; requires pressing a bit more even after it 'click's before it responds.
Rooting was easy once I found the correct thing to use.
SuperOneClick + ratc worked on the stock 2.1-update1 ROM.
Anyway, don't get this one unless you have to, in my opinion.
But hey, at least it runs Android.
Anonymous, 20 Jun 2012i have an idea of buying this one............wil it worth? If you want a unresponsive phone that sense to the fist, lack of storage, crappy customer support and a brand name that gives you nothing but grief than go ahead, it's worth your money
steve, 08 Jun 2012let me guess u own a galaxy s2 and u love it ha they are dated now the one x is fastest phone ... morelol, of course I acknowledge that.
Face is, have this crap phone over estimating it. Ohh loooookkkk at my gt540 I upgraded this piece of trash to android 4.0.4! It hogs all my memory and CPU cycles! Look it's 256MB DDR ram is faster than the One X's Dual Channel 1GB DDR2 ram!
Since I upgraded my dying optimus gt540 to ICS, the 600MHz ARM11 single processor is faster than a 1.5GHz QuaD core A9 Tegra 3!!
The hideously slow adreno 200 is faster than the Tegra 3 ULV GeForce!
LOL in your dreams
I have a lg,i root and I have works perfectly .. not to brake, a 800Mhz processor.....2.3.7 android...
i can't download anything from this phone. i tried everything but then i failed.
The slowest phone i have ever used. A very long delay in response. From time to time it freezes and nnothing is working. I tried to upgrade but it didn't work.
I hated this phone. Had it with Adnroid 2.1 (almost impossible to upgrade further because you can't find a fastboot rom to put cyanogenmod on it). Gets slow fast after opening 2-3 applications like facebook, whatsapp and gmail. really slow for youtube.

I can't believe there would be fanboys that takes Hell over heaven.
Even the original slow 400mhz iphone can handle it.
the defender game? full speed, yep has to fps? 5? great one. how on earth are you suppose to enjoy it?
swiftdroid is slow, just displays fake benchmark scores. in real world basic non 3d intensive racing games are ranging thunder 2 plays ok, doesn't hang nor run at smooth frame rates which is really a poor excuse for a fast phone.
i don't believe a 900mhz arm11 cpu is fast. compared to my SGS underclocked to 800mhz cortex a8... the SGS is way faster.
SGS2 is even faster with arm cortex a9
but i wouldnt say it fast anymore... not like "Ohhh the galaxy s2 is faster than the quad core 1.5ghz one x!". Your comment is just unrealistic.
Anonymous, 23 May 2012too slow...hanging problemGT540 is SLOW?!? Just upgraded to SwiftDroid 2.3.7 last week (check XDA-Developers forum on the topic - this ROM unlock full power of the harware video accelerator) and now my GT540 runs Dungeon Hunter and N.O.V.A. (both games designed for Samsung Galaxy SII !!!) at full speed. With the strong community behind it this phone gives amazing results comparable to high-end 800USD phones at 1/10th the price (for a second-hand unit).
