LG Optimus 4X HD P880 Hands-on Review

In the recent market, LG was totally out of the league with the almost-failed Optimus 3D which got faded becuase of the likes of Samsung Galaxy S III, HTC One X, Motorola Droid Razr, but now as the new LG Optimus 4X HD enters the market, has it tried to keep the other brands worried? Not totally, because although they call it HD with the additional features and although the screen produces an excellent display, the 1080p factor still seems to be missing. But at the same time, LG has brought in one of the neatly designed flat and delicate-look phones that has got the internal features good enough to stand tall in front of the current leaders in the market. Talking about the Android phones, the HD screen, Ice Cream Sandwich OS, a strong processor and extra connectivity options are all mandatory to be called a good smartphone, and the Optimus 4X HD has got all of it, even the Near Field Communication and a Quad-Core processor.

LG Optimus 4X HD Front Hands-on

Let’s see how the Optimus 4X HD fares in all the aspects,

Design, Display and Form Factor

We have seen the similar sized screen on all the recent phones, with the 4.7-inch display standing in the center of the body that is 5.21-inches tall and 2.68-inch wide. The phone being comfortable in the hands is one of the basic necessities, and we would have been rather disappointed if the 4X had been larger than this, just like we complained about the Galaxy Note back when it was launched with the tag of a phone.

The phone is quite thin, with no bulge and there is a uniform thickness of 8.9mm from top to bottom, and there are two silver stripes that form the front and back edges of the phone. The phone is quite attractive, looks well built but doesn’t totally beat the HTC One X or the Samsung Galaxy S III in terms of design, and is made just similar to them, having nothing really fascinating in it. Though, unlike the bold and plastic feel in those two phones, the 4X HD has got a royal look with the stripes and the overlapping design in the side panels.

There are no physical keys on the front, and the three touch sensitive keys on the bottom are for Back, Home and Menu. The top front side has the LG logo below the silver stripe and the earpiece, and the right corner on the top has the front camera. To the left of the LG logo is the light sensor, mainly for the brightness setting.
An issue that we always talk about, is the Lock key, which is located on the top panel, and that makes it hard for the finger to reach on the 5-inch tall body. This is where the Samsung Galaxy phones beat the others, by having the lock key in the right side panel so that the finger easily reachese there. LG has no compromise with the beauty at the sides, with the punching out of center continued even on the volume rocker keys.

The bottom side has got the Micro USB slot, and the 3.5-mm headset jack is located on the top left side. The back panel is of matte finish, roughened and looks bold and tough, with the ridges running diagonally making the feel better than the flat and smooth back panels which get the scratches quite easily.
An 8-megapixel camera and a tiny LED flash lie on the top left side on the back panel, above the silver LG logo, and the speaker is near the bottom. The placement is similar to what we see in the Samsung Galaxy devices.

Overall, the LG Optimus 4X HD has got a neat and sleek design, but not the best out there because it just resembles any other large phones except the designed sides.

The display is a standard 720p one, but LG has got additions into it. It’s the Nitro HD and Spectrum that gets the IPS display with 1280 x 720 pixels better with an excellent graphic quality, but the recent 1080p factor in major smartphones has been well hyped, which would be missed in the 4X. What hits the Optimus 4X hard is the embedding of the display below the top glass which is clearly visible and makes the display inferior to the screens of the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III, and especially the Nokia Lumia 900 which all have got the display along the level of the glass. Gorilla Glass is appreciable, but the black stripe around the display and the embedding of the display is what we don’t appreciate.

The glass is a magnet for fingerprints and unless it’s rubbed off using a soft cloth, the fingerprint doesn’t go away easily. Keep aside the comparisons, the display and graphics quality of the 4X HD screen is excellent. The screen is well readable even in bright conditions, like under the sunlight.

Interface, Operating System and Apps

The LG Optimus 4X HD is advanced, well advanced in terms of Interface and the Operating system, having the Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 OS, with the latest version of their User Interface which looks brilliant, and this area is one of those which LG seriously made huge changes in. Having such an intuitive and impressive interface along with the strong 1.5 GHz processor is a big plus factor. The processor is a 1.5GHz one, quad-core Tegra 3 one which doesn’t slow down the phone at all although some heavy usage with multiple applications running at once.

The welcome screen / lock screen has a central lock which has to be dragged and that is neatly made to expose the internal page or notification while the circle is expanded by the dragging of the lock. The time, date are located on the top center and the notification panel cannot be opened unless the phone screen is unlocked. There are 7 home screens, most of them filled with the pre-loaded widgets and shortcuts, and the home screens shift beautifully with the widgets getting folded like the wings of the butterfly.

LG Optimus 4X HD Interface Notification Panel  LG Optimus 4X HD Interface Notifications  LG Optimus 4X HD Interface Options

The notification panel serves a lot of purposes which include –

  • Quickmemo – This would open a quickmemo directly on the home screen.
  • Sound – Toggling the sound on / off
  • Wi-Fi – Toggling the Wi-Fi on / off
  • Rotation – Toggling the rotation of the screen on / off when the phone is rotated
  • Brightness – Brightness changing at 3 levels
  • GPS – Toggling GPS locator on / off
  • Edit – To rearrange the quick settings

The app list pages have the separate tabs to display the normal Apps, the downloaded Applications, the Widgets and a button to directly go to the Settings area. LG has integrated some excellent and useful apps which someone would be taking advantage of quite often. A utility section includes the important and commonly used apps list which includes SmartShare, Memo, Voice Recorder and Calculator apps.

LG Optimus 4X HD Interface Apps  LG Optimus 4X HD Interface Downloads  LG Optimus 4X HD Interface Widgets

The 4X has got a RemoteCall service which makes the company representative remotely control your device and support the device to make any changes whenever you need any help. This is a handy option where you don’t need to visit the LG service centers when the phone gives up or doesn’t respond well to a command at any time.

The other basic applications in the LG Optimus 4X HD are the App Manager, Backup, FM Radio, Finance app, Email, LG Tag+, Polaris Office, Task Manager, LG SmartWorld. As always seen in the Android phones, the Google apps like Search, Gmail, Google Talk, Google Maps, Youtube and Google+ are available pre-installed. Picasa is a neat addition to the list, making it one of the options to backup the photos to the Google server.
There is no swype for typing, so you would have to rely on any 3rd party typing apps if you don’t want to prefer using the standard keyword pressing each alphabet separately, or the phone does have the Voice-to-text conversion if you are too lazy to type.

The Email app of the 4X takes the support of Microsoft Exchange for sending and receiving mails, but it is for those who are looking for something different from the Gmail app which too comes preinstalled. Entertainment is through the Media Home app, which showcases the Photos, Videos and Music at one place. We would discuss about the beauty of the Video and Music players below. The Gallery lists all of the photos and videos categorized based on how they were captured. Both the pictures and videos captured using the phone camera are located under a single folder, while the screenshots or pictures taken from an external source are located in different folders.
There are multiple sharing options for the media files, including Bluetooth, Email, Gmail, Google+, Memo, Messaging, Picasa, SmartShare and the number would rise based on the external applications you download and use.

The Interface is neat, looks vibrant and the load of wallpapers and widgets can make things far interesting, but LG doesn’t have those special features that the users can boast about, which the Galaxy S III users would show off. Considering how less LG had cared about the OS (keeping all its recent phones on Gingerbread OS) and the interface in the recent past, the 4X’s interface makes one feel happier to see a lot of makeover. The Android Play Store gives people several options to customize the interface but the 4X already comes with such launcher-like options, keeping the need for the 3rd party apps aside.

LG Tag+ is an application which helps in easy saving and loading of the settings to the NFC tag, and the same app would make the customizations to suit the certain environments. One would need to select the tag setting and write it to the tag. The environments in which the users can select the mode for NFC include the Car Mode, Office Mode, Sleep Mode and the User Mode.

Connectivity, Call Quality and Multimedia

On-the-go is on demand, and LG has followed the trend to provide a lot of connectivity options, including the 3G, Wi-Fi of all variants, Bluetooth, and the NFC through the LG Tag+ for the extra commanding and shortcut options. The 3G connectivity was neat, with the download speed ranging between 1.2 to 1.5 Mbps at a network zone with full network reception, and the upload speed was somewhere around 350 Kbps.

The NFC connectivity is through Android Beam, and for those who don’t have an idea about it, its an option that would help exchange data between devices and that happens when the devices touch each other. This is similar to bluetooth, but the speed of transfer is faster. Another cool option included is the Wi-Fi Direct, which would help setting up a peer-to-peer connectivity between two devices through Wi-Fi.
The option of selecting only the 2G network whenever you don’t want to waste more battery and just would be happy with the slower speeds, comes handy while traveling. The network mode can be selected or it would auto-select the network based on the availability. The 4X can be used as a personal Wi-Fi hotspot, helping other wireless devices connect to the Internet using this phone’s network, and even here, LG has given a chance to save battery – Timeout, where the Portable hotspot automatically turns off when not in use for more than 5 minutes.

LG Optimus 4X HD Interface WiFi  LG Optimus 4X HD Interface Connectivity  LG Optimus 4X HD Interface Networks

USB Connectivity – Lot of options when the phone is connected to the computer using the USB connection, where one could set the phone to just charging, or connect via. Media Sync, LG Software, Camera (to transfer photos), or USB tethering so that the phone’s internet is shared with the computer.
Connecting to the LG software is possible very well through the Wi-Fi too, where you get a separate option for the same. One of the options that we really liked is the On-Screen Phone settings, where the screen of the phone is displayed and controlled from the PC, just like one would do the remote access to the phones from the computer.

Call quality – The quality of the voice through the ear piece is sharp and neat, but the speakers on the back are placed at a wrong place, making it hard to hold in the hands when you want to have the access to the buttons on the sides, and keep the speaker exposed at the same time. At silent environment, the speaker quality is good and clear but when you try to use it in an open place, the Optimus 4X is nothing in front of the Sony Ericsson and Samsung phones, keep the comparison with Nokia phones aside.

Multimedia – The Media Home would grab the attention, with all the media content at one place. Opening this app would make you feel like having a media player in your hands rather than a smartphone. The hub has 3 large thumbnails for Videos, Photos and Music. Settings show that the Media Home gets activated when the phone is connected to the MHL cable, or is mounted and connected to a desk cradle. Photos in the Media Home can be viewed through a slide show with a few settings.

Video player is excellent, totally refreshed and has options that no recent Android smartphone has got. Multiple options, including the video preview and speeding up the video playing, locking the screen etc.

Performance and Battery Life

Performance wise, the LG Optimus 4X HD has to get a lot of appreciation. Try to test it in many ways, the phone just won’t easily break down in performance. May be that’s because we didn’t have a lot of new additions of applications, or change in lot of settings, but still the problems that we see in the initial stages of other devices is not seen in the Optimus 4X. The quad-core Tegra 3 processor clocking at 1.5 GHz speed and having the support of 1GB RAM, the LG Optimus 4X HD has got enough to handle the Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

Talk about the Benchmark tests, it is no where beating the Samsung’s masterpiece, the Galaxy S III, but we’ll talk about the actual performance here with both the devices beside each other and doing the same functions – we didn’t notice any much difference and no lagging of performance of the 4X. But along with the good performance and speed, we had expected a good battery life, which didn’t happen to the expectations. It gave a decent time of usage, and is not totally a fast draining battery that LG has got, but when they considered huge changes in the interface, internal specs, the battery should have been kept better for a longer life. A full charge with all the normal usage, a few videos and some time of camera usage saw the battery last for a full day.

Final Verdict

Having checked, talked and reviewed so much about the Optimus 4X, the final question arises – Is the Optimus 4X HD good enough in the league to be called one of the best smartphones in the current market? YES would be the answer from us. The current leader for us is the Samsung Galaxy S III, but the 4X is no where behind given the processor, the screen size, camera compared to the S III.

LG Optimus 4X HD vs Samsung Galaxy S III

LG has finally come up with something good, after the previous devices which could never stand in comparison to the other leaders in the market. The 4Xs speed is good, the design is very much improved but although not the best, is classy. One disadvantage for the 4X launch is being late, where most of the Android fans would have had their hands on the Galaxy S III or the HTC One X, and they won’t see anything new or different in the Optimus 4X. Nevertheless, the Optimus 4X is totally worthy for the price and the hype.

    nice

  • Richard Fox

    where can i find directions for rooting my lg p590

  • blindless

    I think nobody likes the LG’s anymore, I see no reason to buy it though. I believe the HTC is pretty neat

  • basheerdon

    Do you like this Smart Phone or HTC One X or the Galaxy S III

  • basheerdon

    Why should someone buy the LG Optimus 4X HD SmartPhone?

  • Abhi

    for your answer,
    1.)i like it because its 3 to 4 bucks cheaper..
    2.)i still like the htc one x

  • Kanan Benjamin

    1. Someone should buy it because its an amazing phone seems to be really good.
    2.Samsung galaxy s3

  • https://twitter.com/#!/ZayStylin Zay Stylin

    The phone is beautiful, the specs are even better, but I would still prefer the Galaxy S3 or the One X over this because of Samsung’s and HTC’s reputations of having great customer service and their overall more attractive UI.

  • http://www.facebook.com/sonubabu Sonu Babu

    if u look for design go for 4X
    but for me its S3 coz its the master…

  • http://www.facebook.com/elbarhoum Ibrahim Mezouar

    After checking this phone, the HTC One X, and the Galaxy SIII, i’d say the best one is the galaxy, due to many factors: design, build quality, screen, performance, and connectivity. I think you should get the S III instead

  • Shiva Shiva V

    This Phone is comparable to the latest Galaxy s3

  • Murshid Ahmed

    Well, this is best when we take a look that specs. Better than a Galaxy s3. But what is missing is some good design. They need to implement their unique identity into their devices. This gives a feeling like it has the raw android OS. They need to customize the OS’s front UX design into something like Sense or TouchWiz. Plus they need to give a look to the device physically as well. Even Samsung had that lack of design in S2. But S3 looks literally good in hands.
    In my opinion this is Good phone with an ugly look.

  • http://twitter.com/ana3mic Shtiliyan Djinovski

    1. For the awesome display and the Tegra3.
    2. I’d probably go with the S III

  • Waman

    Should buy LG Optimus 4X for the best specs ever and It’s also very solid and sturdy-feeling for something built out of plastic.
    I own a htc one x but would love to have LG too.

  • http://www.facebook.com/elisha19 Robert Joseph

    1. People should buy this phone because it’s awesome with the screen display and a Quad-core processor. Also beautiful UI.
    2. Personally I like Samsung Galaxy S III because I’m a Samsung fan and it is even strong(configs)

  • http://www.facebook.com/thus.spike Thus Spike

    1. A very tempting phone to a non-techie. 2. I honestly can’t make up my mind which I would pick considering I don’t have a smartphone/tablet and am still on a basic Nokia 1208 handset.

  • http://twitter.com/Dili Dili

    1. It’s design, I think it looks way better than the S III in terms of hardware.
    2. S III still has better performance and it’ll have better community support

  • http://www.facebook.com/nissiu Rareș Nistor

    I like this LG. On my opinion it is even better than the Samsung Galaxy SIII

  • Viraj Kulkarni

    LG here due to High Definition and its crazy looks.
    Ultimately go with Samsung Galaxy S3.

  • Marcelo Gaspoz

    1) It is one high end smartphone, and it’s powered by a tegra 3, so eventually it all comes down to taste about an specific phone brand and not an specific phone.
    2) I like more the 4x, because i compared de super amoled and the IPS and i liked the IPS more
    Good luck everyone, and great site guys

  • ChetanBhawani

     LG, Samsung and HTC fall in a totally different league compared to the iPhone. But I won’t take the LG Optimus 4X as an alternative option.

  • ChetanBhawani

     True, finally some good changes and additions made by LG.

  • Parau Denis

    1. looks good, quad core processor has ice cream sandwich its one of the most powerfull smartphones and its better than an iphone
    2. Samsung galaxy s3 because I consider it the best smartphone

  • Jeron_tibay1992

    i think why people need to buy LG Optimus 4X HD becouse its the most awsome phone ever!!! it almost have everything i more like this phone than other becouse it have wide screep, good for viewing picture and it have many application that i can use

  • http://twitter.com/sarz49 Sarah Almonte

    1. This phone is a good option for those who wants an HD phone with a quad core processor plus, it’s Android.
    2. But I still prefer the Samsung Galaxy S III

  • http://twitter.com/akabane29 Kevin Masangcay

    1. You should buy this phone because of its great feature like the quad core processor etc.
    2. I like them all but if I have to choose one,, it would be the Samsung S III because Samsung is proven  

  • R_guerbi

    1.
    One should buy this phone because , this is a quite good smartphone, with it’s quad-core processor, Android 4.0 and a good screen.

    So if that is what you want to have, buy this phone. 2. I personally prefer HTC One X because of its aesthetics and performance.

  • Djinnies

    1. people should buy this.. why? because with the slim and quad core phone plus friendly to user, everything you need is there.

    2. For me i’ll go for S3. because it is not complicated to use.

  • http://www.facebook.com/sharmil.k Sharmil Khan

    The bezel is smaller than S3 or OneX tht makes for a smaller phone without the sacrifice of screen size so ppl with smaller hands might wanna go for this.
    Just by looking at the specs and all the number comparisons with onex and s3 this phone falls short and S3 is how a top smartphone should behave and OneX is how a top smartphone should look and feel like

  • Dilip Rajendran

    1. People should buy this phone for the looks and sleek look :) 
    2. I Like all 3 of them but in order i like 

     Samsung Galaxy S3
     LG Optimus 4X HD
     HTC One X

  • Tesia White

    1. People should buy this because of the slim and slender look and also the pristine and clear image quality.
    2. I prefer the Galaxy S III because the some of the features are simply breathtaking and never before seen.

  • http://www.facebook.com/hmszam Hairunizam Mohamed Salleh

    Another option for quad core
    Previously I have Dopod D810 (former name for HTC) and now Desire Z, and feel great with the for, value for money against the quality and my next phone could be One X and I’m sure the value of the phone is great too

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Alexandru-Socol/100002068897069 Alexandru Socol

    1. For its design.

    1. With it’s awesome display, camera, plus the superawesome quad core processor, why not?

    2. Honestly, I have to say I love the One X simply because it’s a beast! And knowing that HTC is very keen on giving out updates, Jelly Bean should be just around the corner ;)

  • http://www.facebook.com/naveenthallapalli Naveen Thallapalli

  • marc3l

    I like the big screen, but I like the HTC One X more, because of the design.

  • Elia Haj Elias

    1. I think people should by this if they like square candy bar phones and want the quad core power
    2. for me the galaxy s3 rocks so far because of it perfect design and that i could add more memory over the one X

  • Jaythakkr07

    no one should by lg optimus 4x b’coz it sucks.I LOVE S3

  • Bugheanu daniel

    People should buy this smartphone if they dont want a samsung or a iphone.
    I like samsung galaxy s3 ,just because its the best phone,and i like samsung phones :)

  • Gaurav Rajasekar

    I would certainly buy this if I didn’t like Samsung’s extra-plasticky build quality and because of the IPS panel which should offer very good viewing angles. Otherwise it’s quite similar to the other 2 offerings from Samsung and HTC.

    I would ultimately buy the Samsung Galaxy S3 though, because of the excellent developer support on XDA which is a very important factor to me, plus LG not exactly being that interested in keeping their devices up to date.

  • countach

    1. The LG has great processing power and a huge screen
    2. Samsung galaxy s3. I’m just a samsung fan

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1191469987 Vishal Khedkar

    1. A person should buy this smartphone because it is better than the Galaxy SIII and there have been no complaints about its hardware. Galaxy SIII got more than 50% complaints of a faulty mic.
    2. I love this smartphone as it is an NVIDIA device, has a slighlty faster processor and high end hardware.

  • dilharo

    LG optimus 4X has stunning screen with beautiful color reproduction.It is a strong competitor to samsung galaxy s3 and htc oneX. Tegra 3 is best in class processor for smooth running of apps and optimized games with additional effects. I will surely recommend this phone.

    1. this is the one and only sleek super smart phone with a great screen….
    having best specs in it….
    with killer looks….
    has a very nice lock screen….
    with improved power than OPTIMUS 2X……

    2. i love only this phone… neither one X nor SIII……
    u really roxxx…..

  • http://www.facebook.com/quizmasterash Ashwin Saxena

     Why should people buy it?

    The LG Optimus 4X HD has an amazing bright and crisp 4.7-inch screen
    and a quad-core processor which handles everything you throw at it.
    Camera is not upto the mark according to reports though. But if you need a ICS device with mind blowing performance, this is the device for you!Which one I prefer?- I have used my friends SGS3 and I really liked the overall experience. It’s a tested and trusted device. You can not forget Samsung’s Brand Value and Customer support too. It’s number 1 brand in mobiles these days.

  • Seemaf

    “The Optimus 4X HD is fast but speed alone isn’t what makes this smartphone so great”, I love it

  • http://www.facebook.com/deepankar.singla Deepankar Singla

    1.buying reasons can be the quad core processor, build quality seems gud, camera looks awesome ,nice phone from lg…
    2. htc one x i like becoz of phone’s design nd build which looks much better than S3..

  • http://www.facebook.com/anchit.xtatic Anchit Mittal

    One should by LG Optimus 4x for the following:
    1.Build quality (no plasticky stuff like the competetion)
    2.Unlock Screen (Its like a portal to another world- your home screen and gives you a peak as to what lies beyond)
    3.Important shortcuts can be edited on the dropdown bar.
    4.Elaborate Camera app and camera quality.

    I personally prefer the Galaxy S3.

    Now lets see how the community absorbs this phone, hoping to see some good roms for this one

     

  • http://twitter.com/murderprincepau Paulo Ducut

    1. this might not be the first Quad-core android phone unlike Optimus 2X but I dont doubt that this phone will give a better experience for above from typical users like me, for I have used the L5.

    2. I prefer Samsung Galaxy S3 because developers fancy this phone, so it might have more developers experimenting on this phone.

    I have used LG android phones so I think this is a good competition against Samsung, but I rather have Galaxy Nexus yakju if I want to have the lastest android build first.

  • Leoeth2000

    1. I like to test it guys,

  • http://www.viditkothari.co.in/ Vidit Kothari

    I can confidently recommend this to my friends as this is as exciting in performance and looks as is Samsung Galaxy SIII (or may be just a “bit” low in looks) but if I had an option between the two, I would go for this as I wanna cut loose of monotonous UI of Samsung OS and this has the interface similar to original Android phones

    • ChetanBhawani

      Didn’t get you by what you call an original Android phone.. the interface not always remains the same as it changes even with the version of the Android in the phone. Samsung has made a lot of changes in the UI from the boring (yes boring earlier) gingerbread OS to the new ICS, so I don’t see anything bad in the ICS of S III right now.

    1. People should buy this phone if they love a new design of the smartphone.

    2. I like galaxy s3

    People should buy this phone from LG to show Sammy that they’re not the only Android phone manufacturer, especially when they “fool” customers into buying the S2 9100G version. This phone on 2.3.6 really SUCKS, freezes a few times daily even when idle, charging, during calls, toggling wifi, camera, SD scan, etc and needs battery pull. Better after 4.0.3 upgrade but ram drops to 687 mb from 1gb, and no connection to Kies anymore.

      Oops, looks like you are forcing yourself to become an LG fan only because of the hatredness towards Samsung! What did you actually like in the LG Optimus 4X?

  • Ravit Rd10

    Looks like its one of the best phones ever made, in my opinion. I assure this is one of the best ones. Its really fast( Quad core ; Do I need to say more ?) and tough competitor to Samsung Galaxy s3 . Overall the sleek design , Amazing camera , processor @ 1.5 GHz . and till date the BEST phone by LG and the best on Android 

    • ChetanBhawani

       Exactly my points in the review. A tough competitor to the S III, and is the best Android smartphone yet by LG.

    1. They would most likely buy this phone for the screen + slim and sleek design

    2. Samsung Galaxy SIII – not the best design, but having the best specs + the removable back cover does it for me

    1. Seems like a perfect phone for anyone looking for a brilliant display, slim and thin dimensions and amazing quad-core processor.2. Personally, I feel that this phone is a very good competitor against the HTC One X and the Samsung S3. However, if I had to choose between the three, I would probably go for the HTC One X.

    1. This is a quite good smartphone, with it’s quad-core processor, Android 4.0 and a good screen.
    So if that is what you want to have, buy this phone. 
    2. I myself do not like the looks of the Optimus 4X HD, so I would rather buy the HTC One X or Galaxy S3. The One X looks a lot better I think.

  • Mahesh Makvana

    1. One should buy this phone because it runs on the Android 4.0 and am sure it’ll be getting Jelly Bean very soon.

    2. If I had to choose from Optimus 4X HD, HTC One X and S3, I’d go for the third option. Samsung always rocks with Android Smarphones.

  • http://www.facebook.com/unethical.hacker Adie Bhatt

    1. People should but this if they want a slim quad core phone with a great screen.

    2. I personally prefer HTC One X because of its aesthetics and performance.

    nice phone

  • http://www.facebook.com/azharonline Mohammed Azhar

    1. The points that work for this phone are surely the amazing processor. Also, if someone is tired of the UI of HTC/Samsung, then this is a great buy.

    2. I’d still prefer a Samsung Galaxy S3 over this because of the loads of extra features it has and the better display it can boast of and neither am I tired of its UI !

    Provided you do not have an iPhone, or some other phone that has propriety connectors, or are willing to dump that hardware, then this LG would be an outstanding phone.

      LG,
      Samsung and HTC fall in a totally different league compared to the
      iPhone. But I won’t take the LG Optimus 4X as an alternative option.
