Review: LG G2x
Bluetooth worked well with the LG G2x. I was able to pair all of my Bluetooth devices with no trouble. The phone connected quickly to my Bluetooth headset, and sound quality was better than I expected, though sound did occasionally crackle or drop out. I was also able to play music through my stereo speakers.
The T-Mobile G2x does a fine job as a watch replacement, though it lacks some style. The lock screen offers a big digital clock. You can use the included widget to place analog clocks on any home screen, though the phone lacks the dozen or so clock choices you'll find on an HTC Sense handset. The phone also keeps the time in the notification bar, which remains up top through most apps.
GPS performance on the G2x was impressive. The phone found me quickly and tracked me accurately. The G2x uses Google Maps for navigation, and Maps works very well. It also has TeleNav's mapping application, which is also excellent — as long as you don't mind the $10 monthly cost.
