T-Mobile G2x Unboxing
Pulling a fast one on all of us (literally), the T-Mobile G2x came out of nowhere and plopped itself right for sale earlier today for the customary price of $200 with a 2-year contract. Undeniably, there is a resounding amount of Android activity surrounding T-Mobile, and with this device, it’s sure to impress quite a few faces out there.

Arriving unexpectedly, we’re utterly excited to say the least to check out the T-Mobile G2x – which so happens to be Tmo’s variant of the almighty LG Optimus 2x. In fact, we’re getting giddy just thinking about it primarily because the US market has yet to see light of a decent high-end Android device from LG’s camp up until now. Sadly, there isn’t much to find included with its retail packaging – which so happens to be your customary set of items. Yeah, you’ve got the wall charger adapter, microUSB cable, and usual set of documentation, but there isn’t anything else tucked along for the ride to make the unboxing experience memorable. Regardless of that, our eyes were glued directly onto this polarizing handset as we pulled it out from its temporary home.

There’s a lot to like about this beauty of an Android smartphone, but before we get too attached to it and make any final reservations, you can check out the unboxing video below to see why we’re undoubtedly excited. Expect our in-depth review soon!

we have the live demo units in store. This phone is a little monster. And the battery looks good as that screen has been on since like10am being played with and it still has a solid chunk of life left. Fast and buttery smooth. Great stuff. If i wasnt so set on a SGS2, This would earn my $$

All unboxings should receive a quadrant benchmark score in the video! Oh well, better than unboxing it and not even turning it on lol.

luis, that totally depends on what you want.

The g2x's tegra2 processor is slightly stronger than the dual core snapdragon in the HTC. It also has better battery life.

The biggest end user difference is going to be do you want "unaltered stock 2.3 gingerbread" or "htc sence 3.0". I havent played with the sensation (obviously), but i can tell you how good the G2X feels in the hand and how damn quick and smooth it is, thanks to that stock experience.

I think people that like to tinker with their phones are going to flock to the G2X, and people that want it all infront of them (like apple converts..lol) will go for the sensation.

I'm leaving verizon too, this summer. Contract's been up since 3/20/2011, but I've seeing what phones are coming out on other carriers before I decide who to jump ship to. As it is, it's between Sprint and T Mobile. My eyes were on the two new HTC devices going to those carriers, but looking at this G2x I may jsut go to T Mo and choose between this and the Sensation. As mentioned above Verizon just isn't coming with innovative devices quickly enough.
