Phonearena, this article has a big error. The first dual-core phone in the United States was the Motorola ATRIX 4G on AT&T. It came out in February vs April for the G2X. Please fix as the whole story seems to be centered around this important fact. Thanks!

the review unit was probably ok, also it wasn't there for the review for months, so the typical flaws just couldn't show up...

once they gave it gingerbread all the problems went away. then you had a nearly flawless 100% stock android phone. it was actually quite nice but the time between the bugs and its gingerbread update was big enough that it killed its reputation.

I have a g2x with absolutely zero problem. I will keep this phone until it dies.. or when quad-core comes out. No phones out there really amaze me for now

My friend has this phone too and he had a few issues with pre Android 2.3 builds, but when his got the update he has been pretty happy ever since. At the time it was one of the best all around phones on the market, and he swears by it still to this day.
