Physically the strongest phone I've used! matches the Nokia 3310 as far as im concerned, missed my pockets many of times and its gone crashing down to the concrete, screen hasn't cracked. I always use a screen protector so idk about scratches.
Stock roms are pretty slow, you cannot brick this phone so why not try Temaseks CM7? Lightning fast


Everyone loves to complain about the battery but that's life, depends how you use it.

It's a good device IMHO. Latest updates should keep you pretty much satisfied with it.

As Mungulz has said, its almost can be possible to brick this device. Its great for trying new roms if your new to the custom world (:

The forum is a funny place
People complain to use the search bar
But when this happens, they complain about bumping old threads

Sorry to say but i actually agree.

The problems i had:
- for three months i couldn't make calls under 3g regardless of baseband /ril combo or rom. I wasn't the only one witht his problem, other people with LG had this problem too.
- the radio of the phone goes off randomly if you are in area with bad coverage and doesn't come back until you restart the phone.
- i have four bars and still sometime i can't receive calls, one time i was waiting a phone call and i was actually watching the phone and saw full coverage, i received a sms from my carrier saying " somebody called you while you were unreachable". It's a known problem that lg has never fixed, some devices have this problem some don't.

There are better phones for your money, personally i'll never buy anything from lg again. The 2x is a cheap phone with performance yes but it misses an important part: the phone itself (phone calls, radio signal) sucks.

Calling quality is bad, other than that, you can find many roms for it, that can work well and suit all your needs.

If you want to buy it as second-hand phone (about 200) I think you are going to make a good choise..if you are going to spend 300 or more, you are doing a bad choise..the hardware is very good but the 2x tegra2 platform is no more supported by nvidia and lg is not so good in making software..so I think you are obliged to install a custom rom
