LG Optimus 4X HD: £310 (bargain!)

I was lucky enough to review the LG Optimus 4X HD some time back and it has finally been made available to buy. For £310 this is a bargain- without doubt my favourite Android smartphone (UPDATE: and then I played with the Note II at the weekend), but the inclusion of ICS is a concern.

This is the best Android phone I have ever reviewed. That includes the One X and all of the other recent high-end phones from the likes of Samsung, HTC and others. I can’t judge the battery properly at this time because it is a pre-production model and that is something that often gets changed a lot before the full release, but everything else is on a par with the competition. The screen, form factor and software tweaks are, in my opinion, better than I have seen elsewhere and LG has managed to bring all of the little things together to create a phone that works on every level.

As I said previously, words cannot explain what is needed to make a phone special, but LG has managed to make this phone special in ways that I have never seen before. It isn’t cheap, but with 16GB of memory on board, microSD expansion for another 32GB, a wonderful screen which can display videos like few others and a form factor to die for, why should it be?

Seriously, it is brilliant…
