Been using this phone for about a week now. I have not yet upgraded to gingerbread.
Battery use lasts about 8hrs for normal use which includes:
-2 hours of gaming
-1 hour of surfing
-30 min of talk time
-30 min text messaging
To get that time I disabled Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Lowered screen brightness to about 3/4, disabled GUI animations (except for the background), turned off vibrate.
The phone works great, I think the antenna is about average in terms of it's ability to capture a weak signal.
The GPS also works well, but is buggy. You have to enable the GPS and cycle the phone to get it to work. I'm expecting this to be fixed during the released patch.
The 8MP camera works great, similar to a regular 8MP camera. The LED flash also works well. I have not yet tried the HD video recorder.
The LED IPS LCD gorilla glass screen is of very good quality (sharp and bright), and has the right amount of responsiveness in terms of touch. The reflective nature of glass however is a slight drawback for use in those sunny areas (a general failing of using glass) however there's the added comfort of the gorilla hardened glass, which will resist from being scratched from some types of metal (hardness about 6).
The apps run faster than any phone I've compared it too, including similar apps on the iphone. It's actually almost twice as fast as the iphone 4.
I definitely recommend this phone over the Samsung Galaxy S2. It's about half the price with all of the functionality. Any remaining differences in my mind do not validate the extra $400 in cost.

BB, 17 Aug 2011this phone can not read window office file ?(e.g. word, excel....)Most android phones don't come with the software out of the box. Its not a matter of phone but whether you have the software installed.

I had some similar problems but now with newer baseband - 20110622 the phone is now very stable. Now just waiting for android 2.3 which will be before end of September :)
LG optimus 2 x is disappointing. No zooming for camera. Extremely poor connectivity and constant hanging plus always auto power off need to remove battery to restart phone. LG needs substantial improvement.
