The First Dual-Core Android Phone: LG Optimus 2x
The main power for LG Optimus 2x is its dual-core processor. With NVIDIA Tegra 2 1Ghz dual-core processor, the LG Optimus 2x surely looks delicious to do hard works. Imagine what can be done with two brains working together at the same time. Everything is served quickly, right? That is exactly what users of this smartphone will get when they own the device. While Android users are crying for a fast smartphone, LG and NVIDIA answer the call and provide it. Restarting or booting the LG P990, other name for LG Optimus 2x, can be done within 15 – 20 seconds. Testing the official ROM will result approximately 2481 using quadrant test while neocore test shows 75,4 FPS for the graphic. Thanks to the dual-core processor, playing HD games seems possible.
The official Froyo 2.2 ROM looks fine, but the future Gingerbread 2.3 ROM looks even promising. NVIDIA is working hard to ensure that upcoming graphically intensive games make full use of the extra power its new hardware offers. When we see the phone for the first time, the screen will look catchy. Optimus 2x is using the gorilla glass to cover the front side to prevent the phone from scratches. With a 4” wide display, watching movies, playing games, reading e-books, etc will be very satisfying. It is bright and well saturated, retaining its color sharpness even at difficult and impossible viewing angles.
