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... but i'd rather wait for the next gen dual core when Google's official phone has it!
To tell u the truth, know body needs dual core mobiles, it's just over kill, I would rather a better design like xperia arc ie, which is way better than these boring rectangular bricks that htc, apple and now lg are doing. Seriously how many of these same designs and 4 touch buttons at the bottom do we see
Android is natively multi-core cable, you can see that by looking a the Pi results. As with windows the application has to be programmed to be multi-thread.
The second area is the file system. Most older handsets use YAFF with is single threaded in so far as each write is a file system wide lock. Nexus S with Gingerbread uses EXT4, which I guess will be the same for Honeycomb.
3.0 adds multi-thread support for native apps like the browser and launcher.
The real important question with all Tegra 2 systems is, what is the battery life like. We know that the Tegra 2 can't gate off the second un-used core like, meaning the standby battery drain might be quite bad, as witnessed in the Moto Atrix spec on this very site.
fresH, 02 Feb 2011htc design copy!How can it be a design copy? How else are you mean to design a touch screen phone?
They are ALL going to be roughly the same size.
They are ALL going to have a large touch acreen.
Do you see?
sensitiveness of screen in this Lg is weak.They should resign from two core processor on favor of better screen! But marketing is wining again.Now kids have another tool and prove that android is better than symbian! :) LOL
Impresive numbers, unimpresive user experience. It will sell though.
Looks like an Iphone design copy for the hardware and interface. Cmon guys be more innovative!
Kiruti, 01 Feb 2011Awesome! Most definitely my next Android smartphone In terms of raw power, its The Bugatti of ... moreThat's excactly what high end gismos sell. You can't buy the best car or the best house. But you can buy the best phone...
testing it with neocore isn't wise, the sgs is capped at 56fps, meaning they could be just as powerful, try nenamark1 next time, way more demanding! ;)
check this :p
Having seen all these numbers, you probably expect to hear that the LG Optimus 2X is much faster than the current crop of Android smartphones in each and every task, but we are afraid we will have to disappoint you here
Still @ the moment that capture us the stock design and performance goes to Sony Ericsson Arc. Offering high end hardware and first to have issn't that great. All we want to not only good hardware most important is the interface and if it running smooth for us. AND IT CAN BE THE BEST FOR US.
So far what I have bee reading that this is only good if you want a gaming device...I am thinking of upgrading from my HTC Desire to this,but now I am not so sure...I love playing games but it's not my main focus...So is this better then today's powerfull 1GHz devices (Desire HD and Galaxy S)? (not looking at the benchmarking,we know what it can do...)
i do not like this phone. it is too complicated.
like my desire HD better, i would like to have galaxy s 2,
DHD is too big and clmosey. i need thin device.
LG made this too soon!
"Android 2.3 Gingerbread is hardly any different so until 3.0 Honeycomb updates start hitting dual-core smartphones (if at all), those won’t be living up to their full potential."
I guess, even if they release honeycomb next month its still wont be able to utilize the utmost performance of the dual core.
I better wait when android can fully utilize it.
Perhaps there will be much better looking phones by then. This design is kinda boring.
I mean let's face it- most people buy new phones for the performance-specs and design too. Its a package.
aaptk, 01 Feb 2011it sadly true there is not much room for improvement other than gaming ui is already flui... moreyeah i totally agree with you first we ran behind the camera pixels then screens now processors etc i think the cellphone with 1ghz processor is still good for 1 n half year :) trust me
