Smartphone LG Optimus 2X with an index of P990 makes a very good impression as a whole, and under the watchful eye on its individual parts. Describe the smartphone can perhaps the word "stylish."
The front side looks very stylish, but offers nothing original.
But the rear is not just stylish, but we can say that proudly. Pride is a wide metallic strip in the center, on which is written «with Google».
It is worth noting a very high build quality and materials of the shell
The color scheme is ambiguous smartphone - a black front panel, sides - steel-blue, and the back cover - brown. This certainly highlights smartphone competitors.
Filling in the smartphone unexpectedly powerful - but totally unbalanced. Before us is another machine on dual-core processor GHz nVidia Tegra 2 (based on the ARM Cortex A9), but with only 512 MB of RAM.
And this imbalance is bewildering.
A powerful CPU's easy to look "serious" video - but a small amount of RAM affects the maximum number of simultaneously running applications. And even the work of serious and intense graphics toy is rare, but noticeable eye freezes. At the time of its launch smart phone may have been one of the most powerful, but today it is simply powerful "toy".
However, such a powerful processor gives the opportunity to watch without any problems even FullHD-video.
Block of the front camera is stick out over the rest of the body
The phone has 8GB of internal memory + can be installed up to 32 GB through micro-SD/SDHC cards.
HDMI connector allows you to connect your TV and see on the big screen any content
Pleasantly surprised by the high speed data exchange smartphone with your computer. It is about 10 MB / sec when copying data to the device, and a half times more - in the reverse process.
Now that LG is seeking to settle in the premium segment of smartphones, then compare LG Optimus 2X should be direct competitors. At this time, take a look at the screen. In Optimus 2X is not AMOLED and not Super LCD, as the competition, but only a TFT without any noticeable improve the lives of technology. Brightness and color display apparatus loses by HTC and Samsung.
In the pros you can write the sensitivity of the screen on a high level, no problems or false positives were found. Multi-touch works well without any complaints.
It is sad, but LG Optimus 2X offers its customers a morally outdated firmware for almost a year, based on the Android 2.2. In this issue of Update 2.3 promises to "no earlier than September." So we have to be content with this outdated operating system with all its shortcomings.
Instead of the standard main window Android, LG Optimus 2X offers its own, a modified membrane.
The smartphone used standard LED flash
Another plus is the interface - a clear separation between the pre-installed applications and adding a user, the second highlighted a separate area in the last part of the overall list. Suddenly, this "trick" was very comfortable.
Upset neprorabotanny interface to connect to a computer Optimus 2X. Here we are dealing with a standard window Android «Enable / disable the USB-drive," in the settings you can disable the appearance of the window, and then connect your smartphone will be in sync.
Speakers and a connector for charging / synchronization located on the bottom
Latest firmware minus - an archaic keyboard typing, a popular program Swype is also absent.
One of the most interesting "chips" gadget is an accelerometer. The smartphone LG Optimus 2X introduced a system of gestures, which allows you to manage various elements by moving the gadget space, or just banging on it with your finger. For example, to mute an incoming call, simply turn the device, and to scroll through pictures in the gallery or go to the next track to knock on one end.
Thanks to the smooth hull smartphone perfectly in the hand
Camera - it's the little bit of what this unit can not scold, but only slightly grumble. The high speed camera interface is again only slightly different from the standard Android. But if you poke your finger into the screen, left, an additional and quite an extensive menu that allows you to choose from a number of parameters, among which Optimus 2X is not inferior to their competitors. In the presence of a complete set - Select the image size of 320x240 to 3264h2448 (8 MP), flash mode, ISO, effects, shooting, etc. There is also exposure compensation, image stabilization, a number of "scene modes" and the ability to install geotags.
Video smartphone allows you to shoot in a mode of Full HD (1920 x 1080) at 24 frames per second. Image quality - not bad. Color rendering correctly, the survey is very fast, and the viewfinder is delayed only in low light conditions.
The photo quality is quite high.
The device has left a contradictory impression. It is obvious that LG is new to the production of high-end segment tachfonov, so Optimus 2X has some annoying flaws. Chief among them - is, of course, the lack of flash on Android 2.3.
On the other hand, the device can be written pluses: very nice and high quality housing, the original control system of gestures, as well as a good camera and something interesting interface-add from LG.
p.s. Incidentally, the battery of 1500 mAh at this smartphone also can be commended - three days of holding the phone in standby mode and less than one - in active use. This index can be described as a very good thing.
