Description

The LG Optimus 2X is the first smartphone to run on a dual-core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. It has a well-sized display measuring 4 inches, large enough for you to watch the videos you made in HD 1080p. A 1500mAh battery powers the model which will include a microSD slot to expand storage capacity. The device runs Android 2.2 with an upgrade to Android 2.3 expected eventually.

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 233 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
