The LG Optimus 2X is the world's first Tegra-2 phone which is a dual-core processor that will run Android 2.2 (and 2.3 upon upgrade) at lightning speeds.
First Dual-Core Phone Available To The Public: LG Optimus 2X indeed is the world’s first dual-core smartphone (both announced and released). This achievement was acknowledged by the Guinness World Records.
The phone was rushed a bit and was released with Android 2.2 instead of later with Android 2.3. When compared to the other dual code phones, the Optimus 2X started looking somewhat unfinished and incomplete. Various bugs, and excessive battery drainage and the lack of Android 2.3 Gingerbread are somewhat of deal breakers.
More power to LG for this, but I think back when Samsung came out with the Omnia HD being the first phone capable of HD recording and playback it was a much bigger stand point in the mobile world.
My question on Optimus 2x as a gaming phone got completely overshadowed as a result.
Symbian (at its current state atleast) wont be able to fully utilize 1ghz CPUs. It is meant to be slow yet resource efficient. It's just living undead.
Nokia lost momentum when the touchscreen revolution began. They invest way more on research and development and it still takes them 2 years to make a good touch based web browser.
2x is more powerful for a gamer who'd also do other stuff with it and seems easier to handle.
Nokia is much popular but technically they lack behind. Popularity is one thing, technical advancement is another. For the average geek like me, the latter holds more importance. Nokia is struggling to catch up on the Smart Phone market. Right now, Nokia is replacing their previous board members with newer ones. Also, they are focusing on cheaper S^3 phones as well as WP7 phones. They are struggling polishing MeeGO OS as they are only planning on releasing 1 MeeGO model this year.
Fact File: The 5800 XpressMusic was released on April 27, 2008 and it sold over 8 million units by November 2009. It took Nokia 19 months to sell that much while the Samsung Galaxy S I9000 was released in June 2010 and sold 10 million units by January 2011 and Apple sold 18 million iPhones last quarter alone. That's 18 million iPhones in just 3 months.
Nokia N8 Suffers From Purple Screen Defect:
Nokia may be popular but that's because people living in populous nations thinks Nokia is still the best. Nokia has gone down the hill and Nokia can't even get the purple screen defect fixed. That's how bad Nokia has come down when it comes to quality. Almost all Nokia N8 is affected by this defect. They admitted the defect on the N8 but they don't have a fix for it. Check it out. It's pathetic.
Its also bad to underestimate NOKIA. Because when all leading brand have touch screen phone in their bag then Nokia is the last one to introduce touch screen phones and when it launch touch phones it is loved and successful to some extend. And when Samsung(Pixon 12) and Sony Erikssonz (satio) have 12mp Xenon flash camera phones in their bag then again Nokia is the last one to introduce 12 MP camera phone with lots of new features in Nokia N8.
Also For example, Sony Ericsson is very poor on battery when compared to Nokia. what’s d essence of having a phone wit no good charge span. I hope Sony Ericsson will improve on that because that’s what suffering from my w810i, with 3 batteries, it still doesn’t last 24hrs.
