Review: LG G2x
For the most part, the LG G2x uses a stock Android interface with almost no intervention from T-Mobile. There are a few apps loaded by T-Mobile that cannot be removed, but otherwise the homescreen panels and buttons, the application drawer, and all the system menus that lie beneath are basic Android 2.2 “Froyo.”
The G2x offers five home screens (as opposed to seven), which leaves plenty of room for users to customize the appearance and placement of widgets, apps and so on.
What's best about the G2x, though, is its performance. It has a dual-core 1GHz Tegra2 processor inside, and WOW can you tell it's in there. The G2x is, without a doubt, the fastest Android device I've ever used. There's no delay, no stalling, everything just happens instantly. When put side by side with any other Android phone, it clearly kicks the pants off of it in speed, fluidity of the UI, and application performance.
