Review: LG G2x
The LG G2x is an excellent phone. It looks good and the hardware lets you use the device quickly and with no hassles. It nails the basics, such as call quality, battery life and network performance. It has capable messaging options, including the latest and greatest social networking apps.
While it defers to the stock music player, the added video options are nice to have. The camera appears to perform well, and the ability to shoot 1080p HD is a rare characteristic. With the HSPA+ network available, browsing and downloading speeds are fantastic. It doesn't hurt that the G2x has a dual-core processor under the hood, providing all the horsepower this phone need for gaming and other processor-intensive apps.
In sum, my experience with the G2x was solid all the way through. It's an attractive, capable phone that makes the right compromises (such as screen size) in order to find the perfect middle ground. For the discerning T-Mobile customer, the G2x is a solid choice, especially if you have access to T-Mobile's fastest HSPA+ network.
