LG Optimus 4X HD

The impressive LG Optimus 4X HD made its grand appearance one year and a half ago (approximately, but who’s counting these things anyway?), way back in June 2012, and went straight to the battlefield against enemies such as the HTC One X or the Samsung Galaxy SIII.
It was armed with some dangerous weapons and truth be told, this soldier still means serious trouble for a lot of smartphones. Want to find out more ? Check it out in the following review.
The Optimus 4X HD measures 132.4 x 68.1 x 8.9 mm and has a weight of 133 grams. Its measurements are more than reasonable, as the phone holds tight to a 4.7 inches display. Even if the phone is made from plastic, the build quality is nice and solid and its design looks really great, being simple, but slick. If you’re used to handling regular smartphones, you won’t be having any problems with this one, as its lightweight and slim body sits comfortable in your hand.
The Optimus 4X HD features a 4.7 inches True HD-IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen that has a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, a pixel density of 312 ppi and is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass. The image quality is candy for the eyes, as the display is very bright and offers some vibrant colors, a good contrast, wide viewing angles and it has no trouble under direct sunlight either, even if it’s a little bit reflective.
On the inside, the Optimus 4X HD is loaded with Android v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but can be upgraded to v4.1 Jelly Bean. It also features the Optimus 3.0 user interface, which looks nice and offers a pleasant user experience.

The smartphone is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset, holding a quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A9 processor, ULP GeForce GPU, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage which can easily be expanded with a 64 GB microSD card. The phone is a great performer and you won’t encounter any lag issues when browsing through the interface.
For video and audio playback, the Optimus 4X HD features some awesome players. The video player features support for popular formats such as DivX, XviD, MP4, MOV and MKV, the AC3 audio codec is also supported and so are subtitles.
The music player features equalizer presets for when you plug in your headphones and allows you to search for track information on the Internet or display its YouTube video.
For snapping pictures, the Optimus 4X HD features an 8 MP camera that takes photos at a maximum resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels and features a single LED flash. The camera application offers support for face and smile detection, geo-tagging, image stabilization, touch focus and settings for adjusting the white balance, resolution, scenes, effects, ISO and others. The image quality is very good, with good contrast, accurate colors and a high amount of resolved detail.

The video camera is also very capable and shoots some nice 1080p videos at 30 fps.
A front-facing 1.3 MP camera is also on board.
The Optimus 4X HD comes with a wealthy connectivity package, holding inside support for NFC, quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, 3G with 21 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n with Wi-Fi Direct, Hotspot, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0 with LE and A2DP, microUSB 2.0 + MHL.
Some other handy features offered by the Optimus 4X HD are the Polaris Office for viewing and editing document files, an excellent browser that makes surfing the web a pleasure, a GPS receiver with support for A-GPS, the Social+ widget for handling your Facebook and Twitter accounts and so on.
The LG Optimus 4X HD still remains an impressive smartphone and does a great job when handling your requests, being the perfect tool for watching movies, surfing the web, managing document files and so on.
