LG Optimus 4X HD Review

The LG Optimus 4X HD has the full monty - a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, a 4.7” “True HD” display plus a fairly compact for it body, and the latest Android ICS out of the box. It also has a removable battery, microSD card slot and a plain regular SIM card slot - that combination you can’t find in any of this season’s flagships...

Neither benchmarks, battery life, nor performance is actually that stellar, in comparison to other flagships of course. Then there is LG's track record of poor updates and class action lawsuits for faulty hardware/software (Optimus 2x) and you wonder why they didn't try harder to give assurances that this device will not fall under the same troubles. No major marketing push, with a tentative European release schedule and seemingly no US plans, really makes it feel like a product pushed out without the desire to support or make into a real success. The more popular a phone, the quicker the bugs are squashed. Is LG still aiming low with this one as well? It seems the Android duopoly between the One X and Galaxy S III has yet to be remotely challenged by anyone so far.

LOLLL. and people are actually saying quad core matters???!!!!! This thing got 3500 on quadrant when GS3 gets about 4900 with a dual core and plus higher score on NenaMark.

I bet if the samsung galaxy s III didn't come out already this would have got an even higher score for now though sgsIII seems better

I love the phone, I will definitely check it out. Here is the some the criticism I found phone with the large screen need to improve: 1. The power button or wake up button need to in the reach with one hand. 2. The battery need more juice 3. More ram specially on android, I found 1gb ram is not adiquate enough ..... to take damson.lag.

Never owned an LG before and this is a good phone, I have lived with it for the last week! The down side is in the little details like, no notification light (WTF), no way of knowing level of charge unless charging whilst phone is still on when it tells you the percentage! Specs wise, up there with the S3 and One X but just falls short IMHO.

Nice I like it but why again to copy the same look and design as Samsung Galaxy S2, was there any strike from design department at LG?

Looks like a nice little machine, but like the G2X was last year, it's not gonna last for long with LG being so bad at updating Android. If you're lucky, you'll get Jelly Bean, but when the next version of Android comes six months later, don't expect this phone to get it, LG will be too busy with their future new phone to care about you. LG just doesn't care about updating their phones, even with flagship phones, like the LG Optimus 2X was. Unless you change your phone every six months, avoid LG at all costs, you'll regret it.
