LG Optimus 4X HD was believed to be the company’s response to Samsung Galaxy S III when it was presented for the first time at MWC 2012 Barcelona. This is the first Android handset from the company that packed with quad-core processors and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It was already get an official announcement in Germany few days ago and ready to penetrate UK in the following months. There still no sign of US debut, but we believe that there will be a quite high demand for this device. A review might be a good reference for those of you who interested with this handset. Without any more delay, let’s check out the full complete description below.
LG Optimus 4X HD comes with ultra sleek body. It is also feature lightweight profile. But don’t take us wrong guys. That doesn’t mean that this device is lack of durability. Soon after we hold on this device, we feels that it’s truly built to become a premium product. We can tell you that since we’re not feeling any plasticky chassis just like we’ve ever experience on other handset.
In terms of display, this handset is currently packed with 4.7″ true HD IPS display screen. We are manage to experience breath taking display quality with this technology. It is also offer great viewing angles. Maximum resolution that Optimus 4X HD can provide is 720 x 1280 and it’s pixels density is currently measured at 312ppi. There’s no need to worry about scratch and dust damage since the screen is currently protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. There are three capacitive buttons beneath the display. Each control the main function of Android system: home, menu, and back. Overall, we think that LG Optimus 4X HD is a beautiful handset. Especially with the absence of physical buttons that make everything’s look minimalistic. It all looks modern and we love it.
As we mentioned earlier, LG Optimus 4X HD is currently powered by Tegra 3 quad-core processors from Nvidia. Actually, the CPU has the secret fifth core, which will be initiated when the device need less battery power to operate. This will make LG Optimus 4X HD battery life last longer. Really great idea to manage the device power.
Benchmark test result shows that it is little bit faster than HTC One X. We must appreciate that since there are not too many android handset that manage to do such things. In order to guarantee for impeccable system performance, LG also implement a full gigabyte of RAM and 16GB internal data storage, alongside with microSD card slot support. This device is also packed with 2,150mAh battery unit, which is bigger than HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III. Our battery test reveal that is able to survive for up to 24 hours in moderate use. There’s no need to explain much about Internet speed since this handset is already support for 4G LTE connectivity.
LG Optimus 4X HD is currently attached with dual-cameras unit. 8.0 megapixels on back and 1.3 megapixels on front. You can opt to take some nice photos with it or record an HD 1080p video. There are some camera features added, including the silly faces effect. It should be able to kill some of your time by messing around with someone else’s face.
Now, let’s talk about software. LG Optimus 4X HD is currently run on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich. On top of that, you should be able to experience LG Optimus 3.0 Skin. You can add some folder, apps, and widgets on the home screen. After spending few hours with it, we feel like that the Optimus skin is better than HTC Sense or Samsung TouchWiz.
Try to switch between menus and we found out that it looks quite simple and appealing. There are plenty of nice default transitions. You can choose three different font from the LG system. We can say that Optimus skin is quite easy to customize and navigate. There are plenty of built-in apps included. You can take advantage from Smartworld, Social+, and Today+ to stay connected with your friends or family.
