Score

4.3 stars
"Great"

(How we score)


Great hardware design, fast gaming, no lag user interface, forward-facing camera, blazing data speeds
Yellow photos, disappointing 1080p HD video, no decent widgets, few user interface tweaks

Summary

The T-Mobile G2x is the first dual-core Android smartphone to be offered by T-Mobile. Basically a re-badged LG Optimus 2X, the G2x performs amazingly well in benchmarks, thanks to its 1GHz Tegra 2 CPU, and has the nuts when it comes to mobile gaming, as evidenced by the included Need For Speed: Shift game, which was tons of fun.

The T-Mobile G2x has a great design that is understated and elegant, but different than many of the generic black slabs that are available on the market today. It's body is made up of rich feeling materials, and it's high-quality TFT display is a pleasure to look at.

While I would have liked a more customized and flashy user interface on the G2x, the vanilla Android UI will appeal to many and certainly won't get in your way when it comes to getting work (or play) done. It is, quite simply, a fantastic phone that does most everything well.

You'll find some video of the T-Mobile G2x in action after the Table of Contents, below.
