T-Mobile G2x

The T-Mobile G2x certainly has a lot going for it, like a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, T-Mo 4G, a 4-inch display, and a mostly-stock build of Android. One thing  it's lacking, however, is the latest build of Android, version 2.3. Luckily for all you proud G2x owners out there, that won't be the case for much longer, as T-Mobile has confirmed via its Twitter account that the handset's Gingerbread update is coming "soon." Magenta didn't get any more specific than that when it comes to the actual release date, but it did promise that we "won't have to wait long."

Although most folks were pretty excited to see that G2x features a nearly vanilla build of Android, many thought it was strange that it was running Froyo instead of Gingerbread, especially since it's a flagship device for both LG and T-Mobile. Now that we know an update to 2.3 is coming "soon," though, the G2x may be even more enticing to potential buyers. Of course, we don't know exactly how long "soon" is to T-Mobile, but we'll be sure to let you know when we find out more.

Lorenz Angelo Barcelona
Lorenz Angelo Barcelona HTC= GAY. Look how crappy the battery is on the thunderbolt, its going to be worse on the sensation. I don't get why they use tiny batteries. Samsung galaxy s 2= epic win. Best upcoming phone and the new standard.

Joshuah Landazuri

Carlos Quinones
Carlos Quinones Plus i love Super-Amoled, and would like to see its next evolution.
Nick Miller
Nick Miller No phone is worth signing 2 years of your life away for.
Carlos Quinones
Carlos Quinones I would've got it. But I decided I'm going to stick to my Vibrant 4G. G2X has a worst screen and smaller battery so that trade-off, to me, isn't worth it. I survived this past weekend from thursday to saturday night without a charger(I left it home when i went to boston). If it would've had an higher resolution hd display and maybe a 1930 maH battery(which i think is necessary for dual core phones), then maybe it would be more enticing. For now tho, i think its better to just wait. Perhaps for Galaxy S 2, Sensation, Droid Bionic, or EVO 3D. I'm leaning towards the Galaxy S 2, simply because no phone i've tried touches the video playback capabilities of the Galaxy S lineup. Even its video recording is excellent as well, without that annoying lag HTC phones get when ur not in a well-lit area.
Joshuah Landazuri
Joshuah Landazuri Probably, i would get the thunderbolt but i don't like the fact that you cat access the HTC hub on it.
Steve Tabaluyan
Steve Tabaluyan HTC Sensation FTW
Nick Miller
Nick Miller Nope, not unless it comes to prepaid at least. I'll stick to my Optimus V until then.
Ken Lulue
Ken Lulue Got the G2x and loving it. After my Vibrant, I'm not getting another Samsung phone, I don't care what they put in it. This G2x is fast. Co-worker has the Evo and he had really impressed with the responsiveness. Time will tell, but I am betting this phone gets updates faster than the others.
Juan Camacho
Juan Camacho Sensation looks better !

Jackson Gainey
Jackson Gainey I'm thinking about getting it. But I'm not sure.
Bryan Jeniel
Bryan Jeniel No im buying atrix 4g!
Jordan DeBarth
Jordan DeBarth Only bad thing about the Sensation is that its the same old processor just with a different core. The Galaxy S 2 is probably going to be the best since it gets 3,050 on Quadrant and the Sensation only gets around 1,700.
Mathieu Omoregie
