For me , the "modaco vanilla" pack worked best because camera woked both in landscape and in portrait mode ;)

Also heard that 2X upgrade to Gingerbread will be available in few weeks time.....

i cud hav chosen any phone except galaxy s2.
the only reason i bought 2x was only bcoz of its price.....
no gingerbread yet so i m pissed off now cant use the full potential if dual core.
So I follow every day the opinions of the people out here, because i am waiting too, for the Gingerbread update from LG, or at least I was.I am thinking to buy this phone for so long, but now I don't want to buy it because I'm tired to waiting for so long, and see that Lg don't give a damn. So the only thing that I'm happy, that I never buoght this phone.And even if they will send the Gingerbread update I don't care about it because it's too late.I don't want to have an android phone that update's so late to Gingerbread and then to see in couple of month that the other andriod phones are updateting to Icecream
LG phone business is losing money according to LG, see article at http://www.engadget.com/2011/10/26/lg-posts-a-net-loss-for-q3-loses-ground-in-mobile-sales/
I have LG Optimus 2x and the experience was bad from phone SW stability point of view (freezes etc.) , LG SW patches slow pace releases and probably will be the last to upgrade this phone to GB.
I do not have any experience with other LG phone devices but base on the one I own now, I doubt if I’ll ever buy another one from LG. by the end of the day when you are exploring Android web sites you can see that LG Optimus 2x became a star due to people complaints and dissatisfactions. Cost of a device is not the main factor to buy a phone, If LG will not improve its products quality, timely support & accountability they will continue to lose in this space.

I regret buying lg optimus 2x shud hav gone for galaxy s2 or any htc phone.
Atleast dey r having 2.3 update.
I lost hope dat dis phone will get ICS or Gingerbread.
lesson learnt "never buy LG mobiles"
There is NO available upgrade from the 2.2 (Froyo) OS to the 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS in New Zealand and I suspect most of the rest of the world, LG New Zealand told me that it was likely that there would NOT be, nor ever be one available for the LG Optimus P990 2X, yet this phone is constantly sold online and in the shops as clearly showing that it is upgradable to the 2.3 Gingerbread OS, be warned! THERE IS NO UPGRADE...

ksk, 19 Oct 2011when will this phone get update for android 4.0?Never... Forget ....
I have a relative working for LG and although the standard statement to customers is that android 2.3 GB will be available this year the actual inside info is that it wont happen in the near future. The fact is that LG have promised something they had no intention of delivering, I have a friend with an Xperia Arc who had GB with the phone and has had an upgrade already, we have to ask ourselves if everyone else is getting these update why cant LG deliver on GB that they say over and over is coming....its because they cant and its not coming.

Shuki, 24 Oct 2011Hi, regarding CM7.1 (GB 2.3.7), this is the stable version that was released lately? thanks, ShukiTo Shuki: Yes, the CM version I flashed is the latest stable CM 7.1 (GB 2.3.7). Still working smooth, just some minor negligible problems so far. Compared to official 2.2.2, which had annoying lags even in the next few hours after a fresh restart, CM 7.1 is responsive and fast even after days of functioning.
Can anyone suggest how to activate the front camera, while doing the video calling/chatting using Skype/Yahoo Messenger?
When I am doing the video calling through Skype, by default back camera is activated, instead of front one.
Hey guyzzz should i go for lg optimus 2x or samsung galaxy s i9000....???
