Now.... @ Jay and others (Who can’t decide between SGS II and LG Optimus 2X----- Please note: Iam not posting to hurt anyone’s feelings or sentiments, just a simple comparison)... I would like to list some of the comparisons which i (personally) found out between Samsung SGS II and LG Optimus 2X.... I would like to add that I am sharing my own hands on experience as I bought SGS II and the same time my friend bought LG optimus 2X... so I have had experience of comparing both the phones...(live sets):
1. First of all, SGS II has a 4.3 inches attractive Super AMOLED screen .. .whereas LG Optimus 2X (LO 2X) has 4.0 inches LCD screen... (Note that AMOLED is an advanced version of screen).
2. SGS II-Looks are very sleek and the back cover is also very attractive. Slim design is just one and only of its types in the mobile market till date.
3. SGS II has light weight: 116 gms compared to 139 gms of LO 2X... Just a plus point ... I swear its damn light !!!! :)
4. Accessibility Speed with SGS II is simply mind-blowing & touch is just like flowing water.
5. SGS II has an inbuilt memory of 16 GB compared to 8 GB inbuilt memory of LO 2X... no doubt it can be extended to 32 GB in both cases.. but inbuilt memory also matters...
6. 1 GB RAM of SGS II compared to 512 MB RAM of LO 2X, does matter.
7. Bluetooth is advanced compared to LO 2X... V 3.0 to V 2.1... This affects the Bluetooth transfer speed.
8. Front (Secondary) camera in SGS II is 2.0 MP whereas LO 2X has 1.3 MP .... but that hardly matters !!
9. Android V 2.3 (Gingerbread), which is the latest version , in SGS II .... compared to V 2.2 (Froyo) in LO 2X, but definitely it can be updated to 2.3 in LO 2X.
10. LO 2X ... did have battery longevity problems, lasting for 8- 10 hours... but battery booster download from Android market did help to some extent (now its lasts for 1 day) ... whereas SGS II (normally) lasts for 1.5 days minimum with average usage (Internet, calls,etc)
11. Definitely the speakers in SGS II has awesome quality as compared to LO 2X.
12. Picture clarity is also very good..
13. Navigator application is also too good to use.
14. But you get a hell lot of applications from android market for free.. So depending upon your suitability and to ease your application, you can download them from android market.
Some kind of call drop problem is the only thing that I have faced till now with SGS II.. I am not sure whether this is happening to all the SGS II owners or not.. ???
Well I am proud to have chosen SGS II .... not a single regret till now. Now its ur turn... :)
Definitely it’s a great Smartphone to possess and value for money ... I have been using SGS II since past 20 days... no problem of yellow tinge in screen .. no battery probs... and with 3G ... video buffering from internet has awesome speed, which is just unbelievable.
I got it for 29,800/-... now it might have gone down.. Cheers SGS II owners...
SGS II Definitely rocks!! :) :) :)
Jay from Pune, 21 Jun 2011I bought LG Optimus 2x mobile 2 weeks back & this is my 1st phone on Android OS and i am q... moreI wanna know if did you ever try to install SKYPE and can you make a VIDEO CALL through WIFI or either it's possible through 3G. answer pls.
I bought LG Optimus 2x mobile 2 weeks back & this is my 1st phone on Android OS and i am quite satisfied with its overall performance.I heard a lot regarding it's battery life but trust me its not that bad.Just install 'Battery Booster'from Android market and a fully charged mobile can be used 1-1.5 days with normal usage(call,watching videos,playing songs, GPRS/3G etc.).Here i am listing some of the good & bad things regarding this phone that i observed.
1. Coming with an original scratch guard and a good
2. User Interface is superb & quite touch sensitive.
3. Having HDMI port along with HDMI cable.
4. Camera & video recording clarity is also very
good.You can also record the video at night when
the light is less by enabling the flash light.
5. I compare by playing same video both on SGS 2(on
my frnd's mobile) & Optimus 2x and i don't
find any such significant difference in terms of
clarity of video.But in-build speaker sound output
of SGS 2 is louder and has a bigger display than
Optimus 2x. But that is adjustable.
6. In-build speakers are at the bottom part on both
side of the charging point just like iPhone-4. So
there is no difficulty getting the incoming
call tone when my phone is lyeing on my bed :).
1. Delayed Call notification: If you try to call from
another phone to LG optimus 2X then you will get
the alert notification after 1.5-2 riniging cycles
from the calling party and if you just give a half
ring missed call to your optimus 2x then you will
not at all get any missed call alert on your 2x
All Optimus 2X phone owner.......Just try it out.
I think LG should seriously do something for this
issue as it is a basic phone functionality and fix
should be available in the next software
upgrade(to Android 2.3).
2. Battery life: Bettery drains drastically when you
are using 3G/Wi-fi hotspot on 2x.So LG should come
up with some Optimization in this area as well.
3. Multi touch input method: The Multi touch is not
working properly when you are trying to zoom-in a
particular part of an image. When you try to zoom
a particular part of an image then it
automatically slides to some other part of the
4. No customized equalizer settings in Audio
equalizer settings: I think this option
will come automatically when we upgrade the
optimus 2x to Android 2.3.
Hoping LG will solve these issues and release a software upgrade package soon :):):) cheers..........................

Hi Sabju. You need to download Perfect app. from the market. In that way you can lock all your application with a password protection. I hope you enjoy your LG optimus 2x. I've been using the device for a month now. and no negative feedback. everything is A OK.
Try some THD games and you'll see why Optimus 2X is better than lets say Galaxy SII. Who cares about battery performance,all android phone are the same.if you like android then you have to live with it. :)
