LG Optimus 4X HD (unlocked)

The Good The LG Optimus 4X HD's quad-core processor makes it incredibly zippy, it runs on Android 4.0, and it has NFC capabilities and a stunning HD-IPS LCD display.

The Bad The 4X HD can be unwieldy for small hands, the quality of its output speaker is less than stellar, and its UI isn't as elegant as the original ICS.

The Bottom Line With its lightning-quick CPU, newest Android version, great touch screen, and NFC chip, the LG Optimus 4X HD is firing on all cylinders.

LG Optimus 4X HD (unlocked)

Normally I'm not a jealous person. When my friend gets something on my wish list, you won't hear a peep from me. But after reviewing the LG Optimus 4X HD, I'm indeed "jelly" as kids say these days.

Though the 4X HD is already available in parts of Europe and is slated to be sold in Asia and Central and South America, no U.S. release is planned at this time. And that just isn't fair.

Why? Because aside from being LG's first quad-core phone, the handset has the largest battery in its class, it sports a fantastic screen and camera, and it's NFC-enabled. And what's the biggest cherry on top? It runs on Android 4.0.
