It's a worthy alternative to the best

from What Hi-Fi
The LG doesn’t do a lot to stand out from the crowd, clearly borrowing from a blueprint of how to build a successful smartphone. That said, it’s delivered pretty well. Nicely put together, fast and intuitive to use, and solid with music and movies, it’s one for the shortlist... Full review

First quad core phone, with a decent price, nice design, poor camera

from GSM Dome
The overall functioning of the device is very nice and appealing, so that’s why the phone is a solid purchase at the end of 2012. However, it has defects like the battery, the occasional lag, the overheating that’s typical to Tegra CPUs and the fact that the device is simply not snappy enough for a quad core. The main appeal is the design, audio and video (brilliant screen), the NFC tag thingie and price... Full review

A competitive device with excellent performance, good battery life and a gorgeous screen

from Mobile Syrup
The LG Optimus 4X is a truly great “good” device. It hits all the right notes, and performs as well as the AWS Galaxy S III in both synthetic benchmarks and real-world performance. Hampered by the inherent limitations of WIND’s growing 3G network, the phone combines excellent gaming performance, a thoughtful Android UI, good battery life, decent ergonomics and a gorgeous IPS display...

Decent handset but lacks innovations

from The Inquirer
The LG Optimus 4X HD is a decent handset. But in today's supercharged marketplace, decent doesn't quite cut it and the Optimus 4X HD doesn't quite meet the standards set by its earlier quad-core brethren. The HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S3, while not significantly better, exude more class, featuring more original designs and offering more unique features. This lack of innovation, combined with its late release date, add up to make the Optimus 4X HD feel like a catch up product, looking to replicate rather than reinvent what is currently on offer in the top end Android market...

High quality screen with a powerful quad-core and low-cost

from Omio

LG’s Optimus 4X HD is a powerful quad-core phone that has a natural-looking screen, which displays colours in a realistic way, rather than over saturating them. What stands out isn’t the mighty chipset, but the way it can be customised beyond what Android can offer and can be done on other devices. This alone, adds value to the mobile, making it more of a personal mobile phone, than just like every other handset.

It will however, be pitched against the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X. These have already been available for a number of months. They have cemented themsel... Full review

Having four cores at disposal, the phone feels pretty fast

from Tech Ticker
The release of Optimus 4X HD tells one thing – LG has finally arrived. The phone offers comparable performance to the likes of Galaxy S III and One X and is in fact few thousand rupees cheaper. The only thing to look out for LG will be timely OS updates. I’m sure LG is already working to release Jelly Bean but if they can release it faster than other competitive flagship devices, LG can score some brownie points from consumers... Full review

It's slim and light, has an excellent HD screen, super fast performance and aggressive price tag

from TrustedReviews
Overall, the LG Optimus 4X HD is a very impressive phone. It's slim and light, has an excellent HD screen, super fast performance and aggressive price tag. In short there's an awful lot here to like. However, it's still far from perfect as its camera software needs work to improve the autofocus and it's battery life lags behind it's main rivals... Full review

Elegant performance, great performance

from NDTV
The last few high-end smartphones from LG haven't really clicked with consumers and LG is the only one to blame. However, the company seems to have finally got it right with Optimus 4X HD. Right from the presence of Tegra 3 to great software and elegant design, LG Optimus 4X HD ticks all the right boxes.Overall, the Korean manufacturer has released a great Android smartphone, maybe not at the same level as the One X and the Galaxy S III, but certainly a worthy contender nonetheless...

It is nonetheless a capable device that will surely appeal to those seeking a totally individual design with a flagship specification

from Dial-a-Phone
Despite its questionable aesthetics and disappointing user interface, the Optimus 4X HD is still worthy of its mantle as LG’s resident superphone. The display is as good as any we have seen on a mobile device and the plentiful video playback options offer a level of functionality unparalleled in the smartphone arena. While the handset is not quite impressive enough to take the Samsung Galaxy S III’s mantle, it is nonetheless a capable device that will surely appeal to those seeking a totally individual design with a flagship specification...
