Good: Its cheap and the camera is ok.
Bad: too much
Comment: This phone runs so low, My predictive text no longer works and I can't switch it on as its just gone, It takes ages to do anything and the messaging freezes so have to re start phone to get it to work again. The camera is probably about the best thing on this phone even phoning people can be a problem and can take ages cause the phones takes ages to do anything, I wouldn't recommend buying this phone unless its really cheap there are better phones out there for the same price that actually work and i've had this phone for a while so i can make a proper review, would never buy again.
Comment: Very bad phone. Slot, the battery very short, it gets hot easily. Voip programs don't work. The phone blockes easily.
Comment: people don't respect LG Smartphones. why? this was in past. i'm a sales manager at tech store. i wanna say, that other top brands, such samsung, htc, apple and sony are demanded, are also very problematical, exceptionally about battery life.
Please don't go through LG mobile. It's worst mobile I had. I am using this mobile from 4 months, upto now I went to servicing v=ceb=nter 3 times. It's giving battery backup of 4 hours. If you go through this you have to carry the charger always with you like Mobile.
Bad: The FM radio isn't RDS
Comment: Straight out of the box the battery life is actually not that bad but trust me it can be significantly improved by simply downloading 2 free apps...Advanced Task Manager and Battery Defender...Now, if I fully charge it before going to bed, its still on 97% over 8 hours later!!!
In fact I can go 2-3 days between charges now.
I got my 4X HD for free on a cheap but great monthly contract and the reason I went for it rather than the Galaxy S3 is firstly because it made the contract cheaper but mostly because its available in a beautiful black finish, unlike the utterly revolting girly colours the S3 comes in!
I am so glad I turned down the S3 now because by niece has one and her battery life is very poor compared to my LG. The 4x HD is also noticably smaller than the S3, although the screen is only 0.1inch smaller, so its easier to fit in your pocket.
The only con is that the onboard FM radio doesn't have RDS but I rarely use the radio anyway, prefering to listen to the many hundreds of MP3's I currently have on it, via its excellent music player.
I highly recommend this phone!
Good: games, music, app, battery is OK and it's better than iphone 4s or galaxy s2
Bad: the price and i don't find any different from LG 4x and my other phone galaxy s2
Comment: i bought this phone because i wanted to test a quad core power and i choice LG because it's a little cheaper than s3 & one x and it has reqular SIM slot unlike the others which they have Micro SIM..
still i after i used LG 4x, i didn't find any different from a dual core phone (galaxy s2) and a quad core phone (LG 4X) ??
i have both phones but it's feel the same ?
Good: Almost everything
Comment: I bought this device for my son and a HTC one for myself. We tried it in similar ways for a week, Verdict-Lg powerful-practical and the battery lasts like forever. Htc-never again-ok phone-but batterytime-there are no words-almost as bad as Iphone 4s-which by the way is the worst purchase I ever did. When I read the review by CNET related to battery life-are you serious? I know also other people owning 4x-so far very pleased with battery life.
Comment: what is the use of quad core processor phone when even one ghz processor phones like samsung galaxy s can run all the apps?
Comment: I cant really say whether or not if its good or bad unless i have one in my hands to test...lol
