G2X is LG Optimus 2X for T-Mobile

The T-Mobile G2X is essentially the LG Optimus 2X, but made for T-Mobile USA. It has that same Nvidia dual-core processor, but it also has support for T-Mobile's HSPA+ network.

Tegra 2

As we said, the T-Mobile G2X comes with the 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor. This gives it extra oomph as a gaming machine, and Nvidia has wisely added its own Android app that lets you purchase and download apps that are custom-designed to take full advantage of the phone's processing power.

Stereo sound

In addition to the two stereo speakers you see here, the G2X has DTS Ultra Mobile, which combines two DTS technologies--Envelo and Boost--for enhanced surround-sound performance.

8-megapixel resolution

The 8-megapixel camera lens on the G2X is made with real glass, and it has an accompanying LED flash. It can record 1080p video too.

Stock Android

We're happy to note that the G2X comes with a stock Android interface. It ships with Android 2.2 Froyo and is upgradable to Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

HDMI

The G2X has a Micro-HDMI port at the top so you can hook it up to a TV and see what's on your phone's display up on the big screen. The G2X also supports DLNA, if you prefer to stream your content instead.

Video

The G2X's 4-inch WVGA screen is well-suited to HD video.
