2.0 out of 5 stars Great device, terrible reception., May 2, 2011
This review is from: LG G2x 8GB P999 GSM Android - T-Mobile (Misc.)
Bought two as upgrades from the G1. Sendingthem back for reception issues.

The G1 got several bars of reception at home. I'm lucky to get one bar with the G2X. (The call quality is obviously inferior as well because of this). Tmobile (good experience as always) tried trouble shooting (updating sims, changing network type, checking tower etc) but no improvement. The reception was weak outside our house as well. One suffered from occasional random reboots and seemed to have a worse signal than the other outside the house. Neither had a really consistent 4G connections here in Norfolk. The other negative was that both screens had prety significant backlight bleed through on the black background of the boot screen. Not ever visible in use but it still made me a bit uneasy.

On the plus side it's a really nice piece of gear. It's fast, responsive and quick when it is connected to the network or wifi (wifi calling dropped fairly consistently as well, but as I haven't used it in my house with another device I can't be sure it's not my WNDR3700 so I won't count that against the G2X). The web loads faster than my tab or wife's ipad over wifi. The screen is also nice once everything is loaded. Finally the camera seemed pretty solid and the speaker phone function works well (when you have a connection).

I liked it but as it wasn;t meeting my needs inthe phone area I had to send them back. If you have exceptional signal strength in your town you may have a better experience.
