    what does this have to do with anything...???
     
  7. The design looks very much like an iPhone 4. Not very original but good looking.

    I know why you chose your name...

    LG makes the panel in the iphone 4. There is NO REASON their flagship phone should have the standard 800x480 res. It's obvious that LG can manufacture 1280x720 panels, they just choose not to.

  11. You see, as the Optimus One gained much success as a bang for the buck phone, it's no wonder alot is getting hype over this phone, LG offered O1 with a price:performace ratio that no entry level phone surpassed. Who Knows what the O2x can offer? Say, A running contender for the iPhone4 with Half the price? who wont be interested?

    LG's Optimus One is currently the leader in the entry level to midrange Android phone market. The 2X will probably enjoy similar success in the market. The only change I would want for the phone is a higher capacity battery. A 1,500-mAH battery is a lot in a regular candy bar or clam shell phone but not in a touch screen phone with full connectivity features.

    800x480 isn't the problem IMO princton, it is the WVGA screen, they could have bought CBCD screens from Nokia to compete with Samsung's Super AMOLED offerings, and that would have made this phone pretty much perfect.

    Samsung 1280x720 AMOLED. Would be godly.
     
  15. and then the battery would be dead in just one hour!
