Review: LG G2x
The G2x is being positioned as a gaming device. It ships with the TegraZone app preloaded, which is a mobile storefront for purchasing applications and reading about upcoming games. Right now, it looks like there are only 12 games available from TegraZone, but that will surely change. They ranged from free to $4.99. There are also a number of games installed on the device when it ships, including Need For Speed, Nova and EA Games.
I took Need For Speed for a test drive. Wow. It's a solid game, and it worked perfectly on the G2x. It's a 3D racing game. It was fast and the 3D elements to the game environment looked great. Considering that this is a phone, it's a really powerful gaming device.
Given the G2x's dual-core processor, I would expect developers to push it pretty hard when it comes to rich games.
