  • There is a slot for microSIM and microSD card beneath the back plate.


Camera & Audio

  • There is a 1.3MP camera at the front.

  • HD video recording of 1080p is possible through the back camera.
  • It also offers features of geo-tagging, face/smile detection and LED Flash.

  • The display is bright and crisp with 0 inches of screen and 480 x 800pixels display resolution.
  • Video viewing experience is excellent.
  • Owing to the large screen the keyboard is fun and easy to use, even in portrait mode it does not feel cramped. One letdown is the fact that the keys have single functions; you will have to use the shift and second function key to reaching the punctuations which are really annoying.



  • With NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor and 512 RAM, the performance of LG Optimus 2X is like a sweet dream. There are no lags at all.
  • The response is super quick and fast. Even the 1080p video runs smoothly.
  • Opening and using heavy apps is speedy.

Apps & features

  • The notification area offers access to GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, speaker and lockout screen.
  • A lot of apps have been already installed on the device, wastage of space actually.
  • There is also an app advisor, which suggests apps that you might like and regularly updates them; it might be useful for those who don’t want to browse the entire app market.

Memory & Battery

  • The is 8GB of built-in storage of which only 5GB is available for use, as lots of apps have already been placed in the handset.
  • There is also a slot for external memory.
  • With all the power consumption the 1500mAh battery sure does struggle to make it through the day. It will need and afternoon top.

LG Optimus 2X: The Verdict

Overall the design of the phone is dull, nothing new there, while the performance is super fast, Optimus 2X offers a lot of features  and a little expensive but the processor is really worth the price.
