The LG Optimus 4X HD is LG’s first quad-core phone, the handset with the largest battery in its class, the most fantastic screen and camera; it’s the cherry on top of all Android Smartphones. Find out what makes it so special in the following LG Optimus 4X HD review.
The LG Optimus 4X HD packs a 8-megapixel camera and a variety of features. The user has access to autofocus, touch focus, a 15x digital zoom, geotagging, a flash, face tracking, a timer, HDR imaging, panoramic shooting and continuous shooting. It has seven image sizes (ranging from 1,536x864p to 3,264×2,448p), five scene modes (normal, portrait, landscape, sports, and night), five white balances (auto, incandescent, sunny, fluorescent, and cloudy), an exposure meter of -2 to +2, four color effects (none, mono, sepia, and negative) and four ISO options (100, 200, 400, and auto). If this didn’t impress you, the camera also comes with a time machine mode, enabling the user to take pictures a few moments before pressing the camera.
The cameras can also record, the user being able to choose from six video sizes, ranging from full HD 1080p to QCIF. But what’s even more interesting is that the snapper can distort your face while the video records thanks to a mode that is usually seen only on tablets or it can even change your background.
Moreover, there’s a front-facing camera with the same options but with only three sizes (ranging from 640x480p to 1,280x960p) and two scene modes (normal, and night). Unfortunately, this front-facing camera has fewer options for video recording but it keeps the “silly faces” and background modules.
The LG Optimus 4X HD has so many wonderful features that it’s tough to write about them in a specific order. What’s important is that it runs on the latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, and packs all the Google goodies the user may want, such as Maps with Navigation, Places, Talk, and YouTube, Gmail, Search, Plus, Latitude, Play Store and Messenger.
It runs on 1.5GHz quad-core processor and Nvidia Tegra 3, which is unprecedented for a smartphone, Near-Field Communication chip, or NFC, that enables the smartphone to wirelessly communicate with other NFC-enabled devices. It dubs Android Beam, allowing the user to wirelessly transfer browser pages and contacts between devices by simply touching the 4X HD’s back with another device that has Beam too.
The handset has three Tag+ stickers for Office, Sleep, and Car mode that let the user enjoy the NFC feature, three preloaded games – ShadowGun, Samurai II: Vengeance, and Dark Kingdom, basic task-management features including texting, e-mail, a memo pad, Bluetooth, a Web browser, a calendar, a clock with alarm settings, a calculator, and a voice recorder.
Wi-Fi hot-spot and gesture support are also amongst features, followed by LG’s newest user interface, the Optimus UI 3.0 and plenty of apps, including RemoteCall, SmartShare, SmartWorld etc.
It has an incredibly zippy quad-core processor, NFC capabilities, Android 4.0 and a stunning HD-IPS LCD display, so the LG Optimus 4X HD is a top smartphone that will make everyone who doesn’t own it jealous of those who proudly display it.
