T-Mobile G2x Hands-on Video

Youtube link for mobile viewing

Following up T-Mobile's official announcement today of the T-Mobile G2x (their version of the LG Optimus 2X), I spent a quick minute running through the device which you can watch in the video above.

Running a dual core Tegra 2 processor clocked at 1GHz, the device feels snappy as it powers its way through Android 2.2 (froyo). Other key specs include:

  • 4-inch capacitive touchscreen
  • 8 MP rear camera / 1.3 MP front-facing camera
  • HSPA+ compatible
  • Video recording at 1080p
  • 8GB internal memory

Assuming you're on T-Mobile (or is it going to be AT&T now?!) and you're looking for a dual core Android phone, this is one you'll want to check out. I'm pretty terrible this hands-on (blame my Android newb status), so if you're looking for a more in-depth look be sure to click over to the previous hands-on Phil did up. If the craziness slows down, I'm sure he'll hit up up the G2x for another closer look.

  • nice!
  • So if this sale goes through, will they stop making T-Mo phones and force anyone who wants to upgrade go to AT&T?
  • We have a year to worry about that. If you really like this phone, go and get it, you'll probably be getting a different phone in six-seven months anyway, whether the merger goes through or not.
  • six or seven months?! Are you serious? You may be made of money, pal, but I'm not. I prefer to get a little more mileage out of my handsets and my money. Before I went Android, I kept my Handspring VisorPhone 8 years...
  • I don't see it on any of the specs on this website, but is it 1gb ram or 512mb? I've heard people saying it's 512mb but I'm hoping for more
  • It should be the same as the Optimus 2X (since it is the Optimus 2X) and has 512mb
  • i love how when he opens the browser he instantly start typin: C-R-A-C-K-B... and then the video cuts off.. LOL
  • Hey Kevin are you lost? Lol...nice to see you doing other things than CB.
  • Lol I guess we now know what happens when a diehard Crackberry user messes with Android.
  • I knew that voice sounded familiar lol
  • It looks really nice! Even the screen quality is amazing! Only thing i dont like is why it's running Froyo. Would've prefered Gingerbread. And froyo this late in the game, wonder how long a gingerbread update would take.
  • The specs on this phone look like it has both the T-Mobile and AT&T radio frequencies on it. Quadband device, if true this would be a great device to own if and when AT&T's buy out goes thru. T-MO News has a story on it and they seem to think the same thing. Would like to get a definite answer from someone who knows the facts.
    PS Best thing about this bad boy is it's running pure Android and is very hackable. If this is running on both companies radios I will have this device rooted and loaded in under 15 minutes.
  • why o why cant Verizon get a phone like this?!?!?! Verizon I DO NOT WANT a iphone or a huge 4.3" phone!!
