Aaron continues the LG Optimus 4X HD dogfights, throwing it into the ring against the HTC One X.  LG's newest flagship smartphone packs a 1.5 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 CPU, 4.7-inch IPS HD display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, a front-facing camera, 2,150 mAh battery, HSPA+ connectivity, and Android 4.0 with LG's new user interface.  The HTC One X (global) is powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor and has a 4.7-inch HD display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording and HTC ImageSense, a non-removable 1,800 mAh battery, and Android 4.0 with HTC Sense 4.

Both have Ice Cream Sandwich, similar displays, and powerful processors, and can be had for around $600 unlocked.  Which one captures the gold medal?  Part 1 of 2.

Enrique Calderon
Enrique Calderon Making a better phone includes giving support after releasing the device, for this, HTC wins hands down ; LG totally blew it with the G2x! A masterpiece phone with some glitches that could've been fixed by providing after release support! So from now on I choose HTC!
