The Teen First Look: T-Mobile LG G2X

The LG Optimus 3D/AT&T Thrill 4G wasn’t the only impressive new Android phone announced by LG at CTIA, T-Mobile also got an awesome new phone– the LG G2X. Unlike the Thrill  4G this beast doesn’t pack a glasses-free 3D screen, but it still is very powerful and has a few nice tricks of its own.

The look and design of the G2X is pretty similar to that of the Thrill 4G and like the Thrill it feels great in your hand. The slightly smaller 4 inch (compared to the Thrill’s 4.3 inch) screen was also equally sharp and clear,  and it’s 8 megapixel back camera— while also not 3D— took some great looking shots (there is also a 1.3 megapixel front camera for video chat).

Yeah that’s right–you can play your games (or view your entire phone for that matter) on a big screen!

Like the other phones in T-Mobile’s “G” line (the G1 and G2) the G2X runs a uncustomized version of Android 2.2 (though both LG and T-Mobile told us this will be upgraded to Android 2.3 Gingerbread shortly after launch) and has a 1 GHZ dual core processor, which combined with that awesome screen makes playing games incredible (we even connected the phone to a big screen TV using the HDMI cable and were able to play games on there– and while this didn’t give us Xbox 360/PS3 quality graphics, it was still pretty sick). Oh, and this runs on the T-Mobile 4G HSPA+ network, which was also incredibly fast.

The G2X will be coming to a T-Mobile store near you  “later this spring” for a price still to be announced.
