4.4 stars

(How we score)

Super fast, nice display, good user experience, usable NFC capabilities, strong battery life
Just this side of ugly, a couple of small bugs, the camera needs more work


LG first unveiled the Optimus 4X HD back at Mobile World Congress in February. It's been a long time in coming, but the Optimus 4X HD is now available in much of the world - even if it's M.I.A. here in the U.S. The Optimus 4X HD is the first quad-core equipped LG smartphone, and it boasts a very high end spec sheet.

The question is, does the phone manage to outshine its Bruce Banner exterior to show off what it's Hulk-scale guts are capable of? In short: yes. It turns out that what the Optimus 4X HD lacks in external appeal is more than made up for by its good nature and brainy innards.

That makes it one of the most appealing LG smartphones ever created, even if it's not the prettiest phone on the shelf.

Check out the two videos of the Optimus 4X HD in action after the Table of Contents, below.
