We have been less the impressed with LG's L-styled Optimus L3 and Optimus L5, and details on the L7 are few. Has it been a bad showing for LG so far. LG Optimus 4X HD P880 is the phone that LG is looking at to carry its brand in 2012.
On paper, it compares well with HTC's new flagship, the One X. Both phones are powered by Nvidia's Tegra 3 quad core processor with 1 GB of RAM. Both phone have 4.7-inch 720p (720 x1280) IPS displays. Both phone have 8 MP cameras. Both phones run on Android 4.0 but have opted to retain dedicated capacitative buttons instead of using the one screen only buttons of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
The LG Optimus 4X HD P880 is actually a bit thinner at 8.9 mm as compared to the HTC One X 9.3 mm but I do not think anybody will notice. What is impressive though is that the LG Optimus 4X HD P880 will reportedly be coming with a 2150 mAh battery as compared to the 1800 mAh battery on the HTC One X.
The HTC One X will comes with 32 GB of internal storage, but without a MicroSD card slow. The LG Optimus 4X HD P880 will come with 16 GB of internal storage and it is not yet certain whether this will be expandable with a MicroSD card slot. Like several other LG phones it does not seem like the specifications for this one are finalized yet. Still LG Optimus 4X HD P880 are as expected, which is relief considering our disappointment with the Optimus L3 and L5.
