The LG Optimus 4X HD P880 has been making its way to customers since February, and now this quad-core smartphone has also arrived on the market. Apart from the somewhat complicated name, the phone is characterized by high performance, which should bring LG a large number of sold copies. The LG Optimus 4X HD P880 has a lot to offer so the competition will not be easy. Of course, there are some flaws, and it is up to you to decide whether he met expectations or not…
LG Optimus 4X HD Design
The body of the LG Optimus 4X HD P880 is almost entirely made of plastic, so it is not surprising that it weighs only 133 grams. We say everything because you will admit that there is not much weight for a phone with a 4.7-inch screen. Maybe only the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X managed to fit the massive HD screen into the ultra-slim body.
The LG Optimus 4X HD P880 really looks like it was cast without any error, because it doesn’t have side buttons. At the top of the phone there is an audio input, a secondary microphone, and of course the on/off button. At the bottom, next to the main microphone, is the micro-USB port.
The back of the LG Optimus 4X HD P880 has a skin-like texture, which is a bit commendable, but far from impressive, which does not spoil the complete impression when you take the phone in hand, because the LG Optimus 4X HD P880 is made to amaze with its appearance.
This should come as no surprise as the LG Optimus 4X HD P880 belongs to the highest segment of the phone, so you just have to stick to some things. In terms of design, its sharp edges give the impression that they are a better solution than the rounded ones on the HTC One X.
LG Optimus 4X HD Screen
The ISP HD LCD screen itself is quite good because its HD resolution of 720 × 1280 pixels guarantees that the content display should not be lowered for a moment on some lower branches. LG calls this screen a True-HD display, and in fact, it is the same technology in which the display is made from the HTC One X model.
The images on the screen are impressively detailed and sharp and brighter than on AMOLED displays. The True-HD screen allows you to see even the tiniest font quite clearly, although the contrast is slightly lower than with AMOLED. The readability of the screen, when exposed to sunlight, is slightly below AMOLED, but not much, which is somewhat expected.
LG Optimus 4X HD Cameras
Two 8 and 1.2 MP cameras guarantee that the LG Optimus 4X HD will not miss anything. The camera in the LG Optimus 4X HD P880 has 8 megapixels and records video at 1080p, which makes this LG model equal to the competition, and it is certainly one of the best things about this phone.
The camera is full of different options and modes, as well as LED flash. The quality of the photos is as high as expected. The LG Optimus 4X HD P880 also features a 1.3 MP secondary camera which is great for video chatting.
LG Optimus 4X HD Specs
The LG Optimus 4X HD P880 works with an NVIDIA Tegra processor with a working frequency of 1.5 GHz which is pretty good. This processor provides a high multimedia experience and is proven to save battery.
And in terms of software, the LG Optimus 4X HD P880 is quite equipped because it runs on Ice Cream Sandwich Android, and at the same time, it has an attractive interface with great effects. At the same time, the interface works quite smoothly, and the user has as many as 7 home screens.
The Nvidia Tegra 3 processor makes the heart of the LG Optimus 4X HD smartphone. The LG Optimus 4X HD P880 also has a fairly strong 2150 mAh battery, which is enough for 730 hours of “idling”, or for some 10.5 hours of talk time. LG has opted for a generous 16 GB of internal memory and 1 GB of RAM, while a microSD card is there to replenish the memory up to 32 GB.
The LG Optimus 4X HD will make a “company” to competitors Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X. The LG Optimus 4X HD P880 has an impressive specification (great Quad-core processor and screen, as well as a durable battery), but LG could get more out of some things, although there aren’t many such shortcomings (no HDMI port and physical buttons on the side – for the camera primarily).
The LG Optimus 4X HD P880 is slightly cheaper than its powerful competitors (Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X) so it can have a small advantage in that sense if you don’t suffer from top models. The reason more for buying the LG Optimus 4X HD P880 may be that it is in many ways equal to these powerful phones, and yet brings refreshment among this (so far) undisputed duo….
