Review: LG G2x
Making calls from the LG G2x couldn't be easier. There is a calling shortcut that persists at the bottom of every home screen panel. Press that button and you are taken to the last calling function you viewed, so if you were browsing the call log, that's what you'll see first. The phone and in-call options are standard Android, and that's a good thing.
The G2x also includes T-Mobile's Wi-Fi calling service. Though it's not as great as T-Mobile's older Hotspot @Home service, it works well for making phone calls through your home internet connection rather than the cellular network.

From your contact list, tapping a picture brings up a small row of icons so you can quickly make a call, send a message or email, or even start a navigation trip, if you have a postal address listed.
