LG Optimus 2X (LG-P990)The LG Optimus 2x has the grand title of being the first duel core mobile handset.  In a world of quad core mobiles this is still worth considering due to the power for price.  The handset delivers this performance due to a combination of dual-core Tegra 2 1GHz CPU combined with a low-power GPU from Nvidia.

Coming well packaged with the usual peripherals the Optimus 2x review unit also had an extra HDMI cable for use when connecting the handset to a TV for picture or video playback.  To capture those precious moments the Optimus 2x is equipped with an 8 MP Camera and LED Flash with Geo-Tagging, Smile and Face Detection.

This is an older handset now and so doesn’t come with the latest version of Android, but that’s not really an issue at the moment.  You still gain access to over 400,000 applications via the Google Play store and the duel core has ensured the Optimus 2x has been future proofed against more power intensive applications being developed for modern handsets.

In use the Optimus 2x is very smooth and nippy.  LG have added their own spin on the Android interface, while the main clock/weather display isn’t as good as the HTC Sense version it does the job well.  Unfortunately the biggest problem for the Optimus 2x is that competitors have set the bar very high in terms of software, although this has 2 cores it doesn’t really feel like much of an advantage over some of the HTC handsets running a single core.

Android is a great operating system and the Optimus 2x handles it really well.  The handset is comfortable in the hand, with a solid weight to it.  Android’s ability to customise your handset means the Optimus 2x can be fiddled with to provide a tailored user experience that suits your needs.  While there are better handsets available, the Optimus 2x is well worth a look due to the low price it can now be picked up for.
