LG Optimus 4X HD review

 

The LG Optimus 4X HD is a quad-core beauty – is this LG's best phone yet?

Classy styling ; Great battery life ; Gorgeous display

Not latest Android ; Average camera ; Low-rent widget icons

LG Optimus 4X HD - Pocket-lint

 

A powerful handset that suffers a few shortcomings. It's capable, but lacks the wow factor of its big rivals.

Bright display, LG's tinkering adds some nice customisation features, powerful, microSD slot and removable battery means flexibility, NFC tags in the box

Connection issues, battery life on the short side, design might not be for some

The performance of the Optimus 4X HD is good. For everyday tasks, we've enjoyed the speed and power that comes with the hardware and up-to-date software that LG has in its flagship handset.

LG Optimus 4X HD review

 

Can LG's first quad-core phone offer anything different?

Internet browsing speed ; Expandable memory ; Great video playback ; Good battery life

Screen clarity ; Video camera autofocus ; Signal meter erratic ; Volume low on music

LG desperately needs a reboot at the sharp end of the smartphone market - can its slim quad-core offering, in the shape of the much-vaunted Optimus 4X HD, step up to the plate?

It's strange to give a range-topping handset a Budget Buy award, but the powerful Optimus 4X HD is a real bargain on contract

LG Optimus 4X HD review

 

Drumroll please for LG's flagship phone of 2012: the LG Optimus 4X HD – can high-end specs on a tasty budget provide a killer one-two?

Excellent screen for a mid-range phone ; Handles polygon crunching games ; Clever tweaks to Ice Cream Sandwich

The small-handed might struggle ; Galaxy S3 still preferred choice

A beautiful screen, quad core power and quirky UI tweaks set this Android apart from the rest of the pack

LG Optimus 4X HD P880

 

LG's best phone to date, the 4X HD is a real competitor to the Samsung Galaxy S3.

Stunning performance ; Great HD screen ; MicroSD card slot for storage expansion

Autofocus on camera needs improvement ; Battery life lags behind the competition

Overall, the LG Optimus 4X HD is a very impressive phone. It's slim and light, has an excellent HD screen, super fast performance and aggressive price tag. In short there's an awful lot here to like. However, it's still far from perfect as its camera...

LG Optimus 4X HD review

 

The LG Optimus 4X HD is superthin at 8.9mm; however, it isn't going to win any awards in the beauty department with its sterile look, rigid rectangular shape, and textured plastic battery cover. We received a white version for review; it's much more...

The LG Optimus 4X HD demonstrates the power of a quad-core processor, particularly in gaming. It also has a gorgeous display and the latest available version of Android to boot. The camera isn't as good as the HTC One phones or the Samsung Galaxy S...

LG Optimus 4X HD

 

It may not stand out from the crowd in terms of style or spec, but it's a worthy alternative to the best

Simple but effective design ; Clean and fast interface ; Sharp screen ; Good sound and video

Some buttons are poorly placed ; Music lacks a little punch ; Video lacks a little detail

The LG doesn’t do a lot to stand out from the crowd, clearly borrowing from a blueprint of how to build a successful smartphone. That said, it’s delivered pretty well. Nicely put together, fast and intuitive to use, and solid with music and movies,...

LG Optimus 4X HD Review: In Depth

 

The stage has been set for quad-core flagships and with the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S3 having fared well in our reviews, the LG Optimus 4X HD needs to do considerably better than any LG phone has…

Sharp, bright, large screen ; Expandable storage ; Removable battery ; Charming UI

Uncohesive design ; Late release ; Poor battery life ; Mediocre camera
