I love my G2x and it is a beast but no thanks to LG. XDA bailed me out this time and really fixed it up. Won't be doing that again.

Plus we all know about their IPS screens (backlight bleeding?) Pass. Sadly, Samsung and Asus (Asus can have my money any time) is the only manufacturer really stepping up lately. Hopefully HTC will wake back up.


LG G2x - 2.3.7 CM7
Asus Transformer - 3.7 Revolver OC/UV

EXACTLY! If it weren't for XDA, that phone would have been complete garbage. I feel bad for those that have the g2x and don't know anything about xda. I got rid of my G2X as soon as the Sensation came out. lol Funny enough I went back to my Nexus S from the Sensation (the Nexus S was just a better phone IMO). After that I decided since I've had both Nexus phones and had nothing but good experiences that from this point forward I'm sticking with Nexus phones.

The reboot issues, funky radio implementation, screwed up power usage, and LCD screen bleed are all legend among former owners. Maybe someday they'll take high-end smartphones seriously but after my G2X experience I wouldn't even buy an LG toaster.

I agree 100%. LG's software is horrendous. The Nitro doesn't even mildly spark my interest. Until LG can show they can make a decent high end phone, as far as I'm concerned they aren't even in the conversation about a potential phone purchase. SN: The back of the nitro is hideous. lol It looks like someone put a black sock over the back of the phone. It's terrible lol.

I actually really like the backing to this phone. I own the SGS2 and the Skyrocket and prefer the backing of this phone to the both of these phones. It even has a better back than the HTC Vivid.

I've used the phone, and I have one for sale. I'm a member of the media, and I've reviewed other LG phones, and the Nitro HD is the best to date. G2x was crap, compared to the Nitro HD..

I've just sold my Optimus 3d, now this is supposedly LG's flagship phone. It only just got gingerbread last week!! Random reboots, force closes and weighs a ton. Cost me 440 new sim free 3 and a half months ago. Just sold on eBay with all official accessories worth 100 for 205. LG phones are worthless! Never again lol

People said the same thing about Samsung and look at them now.
The Nitro eats the SkyRockets Lunch in quality.

You mean spec?

Skyrocket is a 6 month old phone with a new radio.

Actually it's Lucky Golden. They advertise in North America as Life's Good after taking 3-4 years of ridicule from the press. For a while there, they wouldn't publish the actual name outside of Aisa out of embarrassment. So they came up with this lifegood thing when sales went through the floor. They still made superior equipment, but who's gonna buy a $5,000 - Lucky Golden - refrigerator?
