LG Optimus 2X Mobiles

Billed as the world's first dual-core smart phone, the LG Optimums 2X raises the stakes for high-end Android devices and gives LG's profile a much needed boost in this market.

Sporting a large 4" 800 x 480 pixel display, an 8 mega pixel primary camera plus a 1.3 mega pixel front facing camera and all the usual goodies that you would expect from a top-of-the-line Android phone, the real interest lies under the hood with the 1GHz Tegra 2 processor.

"Dual core" is a buzz phrase that smart phone customers might not be familiar with, but most modern PCs use this technology to give a speed boost. It means that the processor is "split" to act as if there were actually two processors, both running at 1GHz and theoretically making the device up to twice as fast. All other Android devices are single core, and you can often tell when games and video feedback stutter as some other process kicks in. Dual core will go some way to preventing that.

Another of the Optimums 2X's strengths is the camera. The 8 mega pixel stills camera is a step up from the typical 5 mega pixels found in Android phones. However, the 1080p video capture is certainly very good and is possibly the best in class for this type of smart phone, and the Optimums 2X also integrates with DLNA and allows HDMI mirroring which allows the 2X to output on a suitable HD TV.
