LG G2x and Optimus 2x get 1 click clockwork recovery

Earlier in the week we told you about the G2x getting 1-click-root and recovery and you can read about that here. The root method is a 1-click program that is as simple as it gets, but the flashing of clockworkmod recovery was a different story. It needed additional files and NvFlash. Now we have ClockworkMod Recovery for the G2x the easy way.

LG G2X users reporting rebooting issues

Users who have picked up the LG G2X at T-Mobile USA are reporting random freezes or reboots from the handset. Removing the battery or performing a soft reset is not solving the issue. And a full on hard reset does little to solve it either. As you may recall from our post last week, this isn't the first time the G2X has been acting quirky. In that story, we reported screen bleeding affecting screen colors, especially on a black screen. Now this issue and it can only point to one thing ... Go Fever. Back in the 60s during the Apollo program, the ongoing worry was being so eager to get there that problems and defects were overlooked. And with the wild west competition for getting out the latest and greatest handset and riding the wave of hype and interest, it can often be easy to release a product first, and fix the bugs later in a firmware update. But quality control issues can also kill the wave, causing future users to look elsewhere. Fortunately, G2X users have been able to exchange the defective handsets for another. But if it's a design issue, it's not really clear what good that does. And if it's a software issue, then they'll have to wait for that update. Then again, it isn't happening to every G2X user just yet, so only time will tell what the answer is. Stay tuned. [via Gotta Be Mobile]

LG G2x having LCD screen bleeding issues? Quality Control?

Today marks the day, the amazing T-Mobile LG G2x was released along with the G-slate and Sidekick 4G and there is already reports coming in that there might be a few hardware issues that need to be worked out. Or some quality control. We have our very own review unit of the G2x and it was awesome. Nothing but great things to say about it, but we got another one and it had a serious issue. Backlight bleeding.

T-Mobile G2x Review

Welcome to Android Community's review of the T-Mobile G2x, T-Mobile's first dual-core device, LG's first dual-core device, and back when it when people called its very close relative the Optimus 2x, the first dual-core period. All that doesn't matter though because there this sassy little lady is, and it's bumpin. Over the past few days we've been putting this phone through some wild tests and real-world use tests, even playing some games on it, and here we've got the first big verdict.

T-Mobile G2x 8 megapixel Photo and 1080p Video Examples

You may have noticed that there's a bit of spreading out going on here with this T-Mobile G2x unit we've got here on Android Community. What's going on here is that we're taking a new approach since this is such a flagship device and we're putting a little bit more time into each test and example. Sometime in the next couple of days there'll be one comprehensive review post, but for now, bits everywhere! What this post consists of is a few photo examples and one 1080p video. Spoiler: they look pretty nice.

T-Mobile G2x vs HTC ThunderBolt vs ATRIX 4G vs Sidekick [Physical Comparisons]

What transpired here was a comparison photo shoot (with a few specs below too, if you'd like,) that compared the T-Mobile G2x to the Sidekick (just for fun,) then to the HTC ThunderBolt and the AT&T ATRIX 4G. Would you like to know which one is the thickest? It's the Sidekick - spoiler! Would you like to know which one looks the most awesome? That's something you're going to have to decide for yourself. This is an odd assortment you're not going to find anywhere else - I guarantee it.
