LG Blogger Night – LG Optimus 2X & LG Optimus Black

LG Blogger Night – LG Optimus 2X & LG Optimus Black
· ·

Went for LG Blogger Night on Thursday at Black Coffee Dessert Bar located in TripleOne Somerset where they show us the LG Optimus 2X & LG Optimus Black.

The main feature of the LG Optimus 2X is the dual core NVIDIA TEGRA 2 Processor running at 1GHz and the overall experience of the phone is indeed snappy. If a stock Android ROM instead, I am sure it will be even faster. I am not a fan of any manufacturer customizing their own Android UI. I just prefer the stock Android UI. Having said that, the LG Android UI do have some similarities with the Samsung TouchWhiz UI.

Been working on mig33 Android Client for the past few months with my colleagues. I am tasked to style the Android native UI using Java/XML as well as the webpages in HTML5/CSS3. Been fun working on the Android but styling the native UI is sometimes very tedious! I wonder will it be easier on iOS.

And now, the first beta of mig33 Android Client is ready for download! You need to be using Android 2.1 (Eclair) and above in order to use the app.

SingTel send me the Motorola BackFlip for a review last month but because of my busy schedule I can only review it till recently. I apologize for the delay. I will be only covering the physical aspect of the phone because in terms of OS and software it is very similar to the Motorola Dext which I reviewed 5 months ago.

If you notice the battery cover comes separately in the package instead of being pre-fixed to the back of the phone.
