Review: LG G2x
The Web browser on the LG G2x is top notch. It's the standard Android browser with no frills or additions, but that's good enough. Web pages loaded very quickly. The LG G2x handily defeated every other phone I have on hand in head-to-head browsing tests over the data network. HSPA+ does wonders for Web browsing, and even at its least impressive speeds, T-Mobile's network provided a great experience.
Out of the box, the G2x offers plenty of customization options, though the more extensive selection of widgets available on Motorola Motoblur or HTC Sense phones surpasses what's available from the LG. Still, you can customize the five different home screen panels with widgets and shortcuts, and the phone comes with an assortment of still images and live wallpapers, or you can add your own.
