Hands-on with LG’s new stuff

Hands-on with LG’s new stuffLike HTC, we already know pretty much what to expect from South Korean manufacturer Lucky Goldstar at Mobile World Congress next week.

Among others, there’s the quad-core LG Optimus 4X, the 4:3 LG Optimus Vu and the autostereoscopic LG Optimus 3D Max, and all three have been further leaked in a series of hands-on videos courtesy of Italian site Telefonino.

The video for the LG Optimus 4X shows a very much LG-ified Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), though the Tegra 3 processor appears to handle it with ease. Other LG Optimus 4X specs include a 4.7in HD IPS display, 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, a 2,150mAh battery and an 8MP/1.3MP camera combo.

Next up is the LG Optimus 3D Max. Of course, the autostereoscopic 3D-ness is lost on the video, but your eyes will thank you. Oddly, it’ll initially ship with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).

Finally, there’s the LG Optimus Vu. With its 5in display and stylus, it’ll go head-to-head with the Samsung Galaxy Note. We’re not too sure about the 4:3 aspect ratio, but we’ll be giving it a thorough testing next week.

"Oddly, it’ll initially ship with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)."

And therein lies the reason why I will never touch a P-O-S LG mobile phone again once I get rid of my 2x.

They always rush out the newest hardware, which is usually pretty good to be fair, but they bog it down with old software that is full of their own rubbish customisations.

Even if they promised me on their mothers life that ICS would be out for this phone within a day of release, I still wouldn't believe them... and even if it did come out it would be crap.

PLEASE DON'T BUY LG PHONES, you'll regret it just like I still do.
