Default Should I purchase the 2x?

Hi

I need a new phone, and I have come down to either the Optimus 2x or the Huawei Honor being the best options for me.

I am mostly interested in the 2x due to its good specs, however my research tells me that it was full of bugs to begin with. I am not very fond of using custom ROMs, so my question is, how is it running with the latest official update??

The latest official firmware (v20q) is very good. You will be satisfied on stock. However, if you ever want, installing custom rom is not a big deal. Do some reading in dev section and you are good to go. And there is very good stock based custom roms, which you can flash once and no need to change/upgrade anymore .

Thanks good to hear, I heard a few horror stories about the phone, but I think it was with the original rom which was full of bugs...so there is no problem with it today? (if updated)

I think it is a good phone but there are some better options out there.

My carrier, for instance offers the galaxy nexus for the exact same price today(it hadn't launched here when I got my O2x). SII seems to be better too, but it's also more pricy.

yeah but they seem more expensive. I think spec-wise you dont find a phone matching it for the price, I was just wondering about its actual use.

Do not buy this. It is a fail phone.

If you don't have a problem waiting for the ICS update go ahead
