Kind of disappointed in the phone: A day an a half battery..., choppy, poorly compressed 1080p recording... why bother with HIGH DEFINITION that loses details? Poor audio performance WITH headphones?? Hope they read this review and deal with the cons listed. Am sure someone can fit a 1930mAh battery pack on... Smart dial, Yay, can't stand phones without it. and some interesting user experience things like the tap business. If Atrix gets less cons and doesn't cost too much, LG will miss my spend. But either way my decision rests on reviews of the release models of both. Wok'qala.
I think this phone is exellent and if you buy it you won't regret! And about SE Arc, i think it's big and ugly, no second cam, sluggish and ugly ui so no good from SE. And would everyone stop comparing iphone to any new phone that comes! It's really annoing because iphone crap cannot be compared to this beast! And i'm also exited about Lg optimus 3d :D
Even a 10 $ radio can have nice and loud sound. Why can't they spend a few more cents to have a decent and loud speaker in a 500 $
In page 8 it states that the phone does not play mkv files. Is that because of the phone or because of the player. Will it play MKV files with other players or not? Thanks
What about battery performance? and battery life when shooting 1080p movies?
Pavel, 08 Feb 2011About SE ARC---The list of pros ends here...---???What about best android camera,second mic,un... morewhat SE arc? noted to be a high end phone but no secondary camera of at least vga resolution!
LG Optimus 2X. What a beast.
You can't listen to it when it rings, it has an unintuitive Ui and it's battery won't last (new...) more than a day and a half.
I think I'll stick with the xperia Arc, the best looking smartphone in the world with the latest and greatest os from google! Really I couldn't ask for more :D
About SE ARC---The list of pros ends here...---???What about best android camera,second mic,uncomparable design,much more better speakers!!!)Not good gsm arena not good!!!)
obviously gsmarena has never heard of docomo phones.they have been selling full hd video capable phones since ages ago.plus,what is actually the use of dual core?its not like you are going to play crisis on it.multitasking between music and web browsing?music and games?even my w810 can do that.dual cores are nothing but trouble.sooner or later,there will be heating and battery issue.seriously,don't buy this phone.just wait for a few more improvements and until dual cores are normal in phones,then it is safe to buy
at least LG came something first in the mobile world and it is awesome!
AMH, 07 Feb 2011It's a bit strange, the review on Engadget showed a lot of software lag, and a lot of software... moredude,those engadget reviews are the worst ones,they always gives biased reviews.
Just imagine those guyz, An iphone with reception issues, proximity sensor issues, display issues (yellow spots), UI limitations gets a 9/10 while OPtimus 2X, with issues that (mysteriously) only engadget can see gets a 6/10.
Thank u gsmarena,these guyz always gives unbiased reviews.
ACR, 08 Feb 2011Galaxy S2 with stock Android, ext4 file system and Voodoo Sound would be badass device.Try Darky's 9.2 rom. :)
Good review, it made me decide not to buy.
@ AMH There is like 3 different versions of this phone being sent out. And none of them are the final version that will land in the US.
