Let’s dig a bit deeper into the features of the LG Optimus 2X. The big thing is obviously the new processor. Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processors are set to start appearing in several smartphones this year. For fans of gaming and high definition movie watching, this is going to be a big boost. For casual users it might not be such a big deal.
The LG Optimus 2X has 8GB of storage and you can expand it up to 32GB with a microSD card. That’s going to be plenty for most people. It has a good music player with virtual surround sound and there’s a mini-music player option, so you can control tracks without having to enter the app.
The camera is a step up from the standard 5MP at 8MP and the camcorder can record high definition 1080p footage. With the HDMI out option that’s going to be great, and it will be easy to hook it up to your TV and watch your videos back.
There are no real surprises with the other features - all high end smartphones have Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and speakerphone functions. Naturally you can surf the web, send emails and access social networking sites. There are also plenty of messaging options and voice recognition support.
With access to the Android Market you’ll be able to download a wide variety of apps and games, and the LG Optimus 2X is powerful enough to run everything beautifully.
