But beware of the video. I you find the same problem, then contact LG support in your country. To be honest I think is a matter of time that they will create an update that will fix the issue, now the question is when?
The more we complaint, the better for sure.
When I unboxed there was an updated version already to upgrade the phone over the air (OTA)from version #V9. I guess. The only thing I have noticed after the upgrade was the unlock screen and the setting on the camera for silent shoo has disappeared. The newest version is "V10B", dated on the 11th of June, exactly the same date of the release here in Germany. So on that basis expect a new upgrade solving the problem soon, otherwise they will be facing returns soon...

oh LG, the continuous "AUTO-FOCUS PROBLEM" in video recording really bleed my beautiful eyes (wish i cud say literally)!
so LG please FIX the problem ASAP, because what's the point of having high-end phone with great 8MP camera/video that allows 1080p/720p recording BUT it keeps on AUTO-FOCUSing for every 2 seconds? it ruins the whole function & result really! there's no setting to turn off the AUTO-FOCUS, so a good fix is needed soon!
i am about to have mine replaced with a new unit, even though i know that all unit face the same problem with the AUTO-FOCUS :(

It means - Loud Speaker is loud but average quality
Headphone - good but not topper
It will support with 3rd party mp3 players with good quality as well as sony and HTC audio effect ??
Ex: Like Dolby Digital Enhancement , SRS sound enhancement, 5.1 and 7.1
I think the issue on this phone is not the loudspeaker, but the focus while recording, to me the only down to the phone.
Hope everybody complaints about it and lg will fix it soon.

Surprisingly the loudspeaker is very capable when set it to maximun settings as can output up to 75dcb, see review here in gsmarena for more details.
Headphones sound for me is good, when i switch on the dts, only available if using the headphones, i think same quality than the s2, which is not stellar, but ok.
If you are after a good quality mp3 player, this is ok but not at the top, go for sony or htc.
for me lg 4x hd is better choice...
sgs3 is ugly design and ugly shape!
lg 4x hd is almost equal to sgs3 in everything...
go for lg 4x hd!

Can you explain the sound quality in detail ??
i don't really get why is the LED notification is such a big deal... your phone will look like a pager from the 80's and i don't see anything new with the shape of SIII *looks like a thinner corby2* and OneX *another HTC shape*

you said audio quality is good
you sure about it?
GSMArena review said audio quality is very2 bad
or GSMArena has defect product or?
On my personal opinion.
I couldn't go for the s3, just because the way it looks. I wouldn't go for htc for three reasons.
1- no removable battery.
2- no sd expansion.
3- poor battery life.
For the s3, this reasons.
3- no lte supported in european models, memory for the cheapest model 16gb, and no black colour model, also that horrible physical button, the whole phone is repulsive.
On that basis, i didnt have much choice but to upgrade to the 4x, which i dont regret.
Now pros for 4x on my opinion.
1_ lighning fast device.
2- cool looking device.
3- battery performance excellent.
4- screen and gaming.
5- camera quality is very good, the macro is the best i have ever seen in a handset.
Then i have to say loud speakers are average, if using headphones with the dts on, then the quality turns out to be very good if using quality headphones.
The feel is very good, i love the way it feels on my hand, and the way it looks.
1- video quality in 720p and 1080p, is really good, with very vivid colours, now the down is...it has a HORRIBLE focus issue, and the phone is trying to keep everything in focus, result? The phone, at least mine, keeps on adjusting focus while shooting video every 2 seconds, and that it makes it unusable with the rear camera, you can still use the front camera as a 720p, with good results, but that shouldnt be the point in a high end device like this.
That so far is what i found as a con for me, but has been enough to spoil the whole experience.
So unpleasant that i want lg to fix it or replace with another one, that way they will panick that many customers will return it for the horrible focus issue.
So this monday gonna send it back to germany for focus issue on video, and they will have to send me another one, which might have the same problem., but that way will force LG to fix the problem quicker than complaining.
Owners of 4x with same problem report it and send it back to be replaced or repair, that way, lg will fix the problem soon via update or in future batches.
I think for a high end handset like the 4x, that issue in the video spoils the whole experience and is not acceptable.
Is a shame, as the other features of the phone are all awsome even the camera is amazing.
SOURCE, 30 Jun 2012very true!Bought in amazon deutsche. Black
Got benchmarked with antutu, scoring 11550.
That blows up the onex.
On the other hand quadrant scored less than the onex, i guess is because the way this device handles the 2d is less effective than the likes of galaxy s2 or one x, but very effective for hd and 3d, and quadrant mixed up the results, so quadrant can give an unbiased result as my galaxy s2 actually scored more than the 4x in quadrant but in antutu the s2scored about 5400, which is about half power than the 4x.
Playing gtaIII, is just amazing and a joy on the lg4x, i have noticed that the games has far more quality, and the cars come with extra rich detail.
killernix, 30 Jun 2012microSD card support (up to 32 MB) ???
ITS 32 GBGo to lg deutsche, the specs are there.
It is 64Gb microsdxc supported
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2012according to this site lg 4x hd is better than htc one x! I don't think so. Up until today, I owned the S3, One X and white 4X (bought from Amazon.de). I say up until today because I just sold it to CEX at a loss. Felt very last year (S2 with two additional cores), no Notification light (epic fail), suspect build quality (the strip of plastic at the base of the phone popped loose when pulling out the charger). NOt a bad phone and 3rd in the race but the pricing probably says it all (not aiming high)! Simply could not live with this after One X and S3 as it had nothing else to bring to the party!
They just need to organize a press event sooner. They should boast just like Samsung & all others. Because in today's world you can't get your things done just by doing them, you've to show it as well.
It could have been a lot better with 3D, 4G, LED notification light. Corning Gorilla Glass 2.
Overall, a tough competitor to One X and GS3.
patch, 30 Jun 2012anyone here knows if this phone has led notification light?No LED notification light, better get a Samsung Galaxy S3 or HTC One X. Both S3 & One X better phone in my opinion (I have both). LG quality not as good (their phones don't last from my experiences with previously owned LG models - Prada, LG Mini with very nice screen. etc.)
Once in a while, LG come up with some very nice design/looking phones.
One common problem with Korean phones - they don't last as long as say Nokia or Motorola phones. Well, my Galaxy Note is still working fine after 3 months though.
This phone has better specification as compared to Samsung galaxy s3 (just amazing)
patch, 30 Jun 2012anyone here knows if this phone has led notification light?No. Apologies to break it to you, but unfortunately this phone does not sport an LED notification light. :(
lookswise looking galaxy s2.it could be much better if it was have a something different looks like S3 or One X
