Core issues

As for storage for all that media you’ll be listening to or viewing or the 1080p video you’ll be recording, the Optimus 2X will take microSD cards up to 32GB, though none is supplied, but there is 8GB on-board.

Call quality sounded fine from the phone’s speaker and the dual loudspeakers at the bottom of the phone weren’t too shabby either, with the option of a virtual surround sound effect for films, games and music. Telephony aside, all that speed comes at a price of course, and the dual core processor certainly seems to give the battery quite a hammering – I barely got a full day’s use out of it.

Verdict

The LG Optimus 2X isn’t quite the game changer we might have hoped for. Its dual core processor is certainly fast, and a notable improvement on its single core rivals, but not such a huge improvement as to make it a must-have. ®

Many thanks to Clove Technology for the loan of the review unit.
