With all of the Smartphones available in the world today, finding the one for you can be a hard task. The LG Optimus 2X houses an 8MP camera capable of 1080p HD recording and a 1GHz dual-core processor whilst running Android 2.2; some pretty awesome features, I’m sure you’ll agree.

I remember purchasing an LG phone a few years ago before Android had taken over a majority of Smartphones and the software was not brilliant, it was laggy, slow and just a pain to use. Hopefully, we’ll see some excellent results from this high-end Android device.

Exterior

The LG Optimus 2X is a very sleek and stylish Smartphone. The Optimus is completely black in colour with a gun metal border around the whole phone. You’ll notice the four capacitive touch buttons on the bottom section of the front panel, these control some of the main functions of any application including the settings and back button, as well as the home and search button.

At the top, we have the LG logo in the centre, the front facing 1.3 megapixel camera on the right, and on the left we have the various sensors – light, proximity, etc…

Also seen at the top is the earpiece for calls.

The rear of the Optimus is where we can find the 8 megapixel camera with LED flash. Situated just below the camera is a brushed metal strip that has in the centre, “with Google”, written on it.

The top of the LG Optimus 2X features a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, a HDMI port and the Power On button / Lock button.

The right side is where the volume up and down buttons are situated.

Now, you’ll probably recognise the layout of the speaker, microphone and charging port because it looks like a rip off of the iPhone 4′s! Right down to the grills on the speaker and microphone. Obviously, the charging port is a micro USB port instead of Apple’s 30-pin connector port.
