Samsung Galaxy Note II vs LG Optimus 4X HD
The camera interface of the Samsung Note II is a bit richer in functions than what we find in the 4X HD. There are modes that LG’s handset doesn’t have, such as macro or low light regimes.
The pictures themselves come out better from the Note II - about equal in terms of detail, but with more natural colors, focused, and no jumpy white balance issues that LG’s handset is prone to.
When we go inside, things get even worse for the Optimus 4X HD, with much more noise than the Note II samples, uneven exposure, and cold color casts over the photos when the light starts to dim down.
Both handsets are capable of capturing 1080 definition video with 30 fps. The 4X HD autofocus wanders every now and then, and is much slower to focus than the Note II in the still shots as well.

Samsung’s monster takes advantage of its screen size in the pictures and video gallery by splitting the screen in two with the folder section on the left for faster navigation. Both handsets offer picture editing from within the gallery, but the Note II has richer options, not to mention the things you can do with the stylus for cropping and annotating.
The music players both offer tunes categorization and equalizer presets, yet the Note II’s interface is slightly more polished and the sound enhancement options are easier to reach. The loudspeaker on the Optimus 4X HD sounds downright wimpy in comparison with the strong and clean sound from the Note II.
Both handsets play any video format you throw at them up to 1080 definition, yet the larger screen on the Note II, and the saturated colors make for a more enjoyable experience.
