LG Has Just Committed Market Suicide. Says LG Optimus 2X Won’t Get Android 4.0 ICS

by: LucianOctober 28, 2011

As if things weren’t already looking pretty bad today for LG, announcing decline in smartphone sales and revenues for Q3, mostly because customers don’t trust them too much, they go ahead and throw a bomb at their current LG Optimus 2X customers (and possibly T-mobile G2X, too), saying it won’t be getting the next Android 4.0 ICS update.

Let me repeat that – LG Optimus 2X, a phone released this year, that is also a high-end dual core phone, will not be getting the next version of Android. How do they expect anyone will ever trust LG again?

What exactly is their excuse here, then? That LG Optimus 2X didn’t sell enough for them to [...]

LG Optimus EX Officially Confirmed; Packs 1080p Powers, 1.2-GHz Dual-core CPU

by: Carl ParkerSeptember 28, 2011

LG Mobile has officially announced its first 1080p-capable (video playback) Android handset, the LG Optimus EX, heading towards South Korea’s SK Telecom.

Electronista, which got wind of the announcement, reports that the LG Optimus EX will not only replace the LG Optimus 2X but will also pack more powerful specs than the latter–especially with the Optimus EX’s 1.2-GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor.

LG Mobile has not revealed plans of bringing the LG Optimus EX beyond South Korea, although it is possible for the Android smartphone to reach the U.S. through T-Mobile, which has been the only carrier to release the LG Optimus 2X.

The First Dual-Core Phones, Half The Excitement

The LG Optimus 2X was one of the first dual-core phone to hit the market, back in early 2011. I remember it well, as I switched from the Samsung Captivate to it. It was nice to handle and browsed impressively fast, but not without its own share of growing pains.

Initially, I was more impressed by the dual-core, dual-channel memory LG Optimus 3D, but that was delayed at that point of time, so I decided to settle with the Optimus 2X. It was generally a good device and very easy to [...]

LG Optimus 2X / T-Mobile G2X Overclocked to 1.5Ghz!

by: Darcy LaCouveeJune 4, 2011

The T-Mobile G2X, which is nothing other than a carrier branded version of the LG Optimus 2X, is actually one of our favorite smartphones on the market. It has great performance, and an excellent display. Plus, with news like this, it just keeps getting better. While the G2X/Optimus 2X has some decent performance out of the box, this recent overclocking development takes it to a whole new level.

Still, we’re never satisfied with existing levels of performance, and always crave more! If you’re on the same page, then this post will come as good news to you. Most recently, XDA revealed a new custom kernel that really kicks the G2X’s performance up a notch. It [...]
