LG G2X

LG G2x Overclocked to 1.5 Ghz, scores almost 4600 in Quadrant

I know we talk about overclocking and benchmarks quite often, but it is a little exciting you have to admit. Seeing what the amazing developers and kernel builders can squeeze out of these devices, all that extra power they can unlock and keep the device stable. Today I have some benchmarks I have done myself this morning on my T-Mobile G2x running at 1.5 Ghz on a EXT4 kernel by Morfic, and I was getting some pretty huge benchmark results.

Samsung Galaxy S II Built-in screen capture, no root required

For a while now most android phones could only capture what was on-screen using different tools, or applications and many required root access first. Apps like drocap, shootme, or Screenshot ER. Lately the outcry for this to be a stock feature has been answered by a few OEM's. First the LG Optimus and G2x got it, read about that here. Then we recently discovered it was also on the Droid Charge as well. We now can tell you the Samsung Galaxy S II also has a stock built-in screen capture feature.

Galaxy S II vs Qualcomm MDP vs G2x Dual-Core Battle of Quadrant Benchmark Doom

Behold a simple test of wills. A test of benchmarking, a test of numbers adding up to one simple factoid - which device is best at taking the test? We've got three massively powerful devices here, one with bigger GHz than the last. The Samsung Galaxy S II has, prepare yourself for all these letters an numbers: a 1.2 GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 SoC processor; Samsung Exynos (GT-i9100). The Qualcomm MDP rolls out with Qualcomm's dual-core MSM8660 running at up to 1.5GHz (with an Adreno 220 GPU, for fun!) Finally, the T-Mobile G2x has the lovely NVIDIA Tegra 2 1GHz Dual-core processor. How in the world can each of these titans be asked to come soundly to a fight, a fight that pits all against one another?

DROID Charge Hands-On and Unboxing

How would you like to take a closer look at the newest fabulous addition to the 4G LTE family at Verizon? We just happen to have Samsung's DROID Charge sitting here in a box and we'd love to let you have a look! It's a fat phone with hard plastic chassis, four physical buttons up front, a diamond-shaped housing for a camera in the back, and ultra-fast speeds inside*. The display is a gigantic 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen, and you can take that all the way to the bank - brightness and viewing angles galore! So sharp you're going to cut your eyes open on it!

G2x and G-Slate Both Have IPS Display [CONFIRMED]

We've just received official word from LG that both the T-Mobile G2x and the G-Slate BOTH have IPS displays. There's been a bit of debate about this as of late, whether the display on these devices were simply TFT or if they amped it up a few notches to the more expensive and more fantastic in both color and viewing angles In-Plane Switching (IPS.) What does this mean, you might ask? Why should I give one hoot? Because now you know you can watch Tron: Legacy with the BRIGHT lights!

Screen capture comes to the LG Optimus and G2X

One thing that has been missing from the Android platform has been a fairly simply method to do screen captures. With the iPhone, for example, users only need to hold down the sleep button while clicking the hold button. Do it right and you're taking a picture of your screen. That function has been missing from the Android platform and LG has decided to do something about it with the Optimus and G2X.

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.
