Aaron referees a dogfight battle between the T-Mobile G2x and HTC ThunderBolt. Known in Europe as the LG Optimus 2X, T-Mobile's G2x sports a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 4-inch WVGA display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording capabilities, front-facing shooter, a stock build of Android 2.2, and support for T-Mobile's 4G (HSPA+) network. The HTC ThunderBolt offers a single-core 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, 4.3-inch display, 8-megapixel camera with a dual-LED flash, and a front-facing camera. It's also the first smartphone to support the carrier's 4G LTE network.
The T-Mobile G2x is a much faster device thanks to the dual-core processor, but Verizon's 4G LTE network makes the ThunderBolt speedy when it comes to data-related tasks. Which one will win? Part 2 of 2.
