    Talking My time with the LG Optimus 4X HD!

    Managed to get my hands on the Optimus 4X, together with a few other tech and lifestyle bloggers! I'm making a guess that they will probably be much more qualified than me in reviewing and giving you the lowdown on tech specs, so since I'm more of a photographer than anything else, do pardon me for focusing more on how this phone handles in that area!

    Some useful links about the phone:

    VR-Zone's article on benchmark results:
    LG Optimus 4X HD benchmark results unveiled by VR-Zone.com

    Techradar's review
    LG Optimus 4X HD review | from TechRadar's expert reviews of Mobile phones


    A couple of pictures:

    At the workshop last night, before I laid my hands on the phone itself...


    ...and the unboxing. Specs look pretty good at first glance!


    The screen is very brilliant and bright, compared to other phones I have used. Though, problems people like myself face is having a photo appear superb on screen, but having muted colours or being oversaturated when viewed off the PC screen or even on printouts.

    The good point about the 4X is that it's display is consistent with my PC screen, and more importantly, the photo printouts. I feel that LG's accuracy in this area will no doubt aid me in my street photography jaunts, or simple snapping of food, where I can be sure that what I see is what I get.

    Ok, less talking.... It was announced that the first 2,000 buyers of the phone will get the accessories pack as shown below. That's my butterfly photo on the screen, by the way.



    And finally, a pic of LG's Willy as he explained the features to the bunch of us. Edited with the phone's inbuilt features.



    Will follow up with more photos taken using the phone, plus some other interesting features as I discover them.

    Optimus 3D was a joke, 4x HD is the best you can afford and just get it. Life is short, don't spent more money to get SGS3 when technology has always been depreciated its value over time.

    8x or Tegra 4 is coming out in the next few years and could be at the same pricing as 2x and 4x, oh, Life is so Good again.

    Gear packed for tomorrow's NDP Preview; Canon 7D, 70-300L, 24-105L and of course, the LG Optimus 4X HD. Will be testing the 4X's Time Catch Shot feature especially for the fireworks.



    In case you're wondering what Time Catch Shot is, check out this video!

    Karen's blog is interesting, good effort.

    William and Joe's reviews are just "me too", just read the first paragraph and I skip liao. Actually, LG shouldn't be getting bloggers to advertise when we recalled having a reviewed for Optimus 3D now look like a fool.

    Went for the NDP preview today and took pics with the phone as well! Here're a few for now.

    First pic on-site


    The flag fly-past. Taken with the Optimus 4X and edited on the PC.

    LG might wanna include "Looks Good" (to me, at least!) together with their Life's Good slogan!
