You could probably argue whether a Retina screen or a SuperAMOLED aren’t contributing more to the general user experience, but as far as smartphone tasks are concerned, the Tegra 2 is what you would want to have by your side.
Of course, that is only valid if the dual-core baby performance cashes all the checks that the LG PR department wrote. Everyone wants to feel a noticeable improvement in performance and unless the Optimus 2X provides, the bubble might burst.
So let’s see what those benchmarks have to say about it. Join us after the break.

If you're an Android App developer.... Would you program for the TWO dual core platforms? OR the 50 bajillion 1ghz phones? I think I would rather sell to the mass market. Like the review says, dual core phones is an investment for the future... ...
