The 2X features HDMI mirroring, so that once you plug your phone into a compatible display you will see exactly what is on your phone's display. This means if you're playing a game on the phone then you're also playing it on the big screen.
Videos recorded on the phone can be shot in full 1080p HD. The phone is capable of playing back 1080p content, but of course, the screen will still only display these files at its 800 x 480 pixel resolution.
Like the contacts app, the app drawer on the 2X can be navigated by jumping directly to the first letter of the app you're looking for. There's also the option to transform the layout from a vertically scrolling menu to horizontal pages, like the iPhone.
