The LG Girl is back with a demo of the LG Optimus 4X HD! WARNING: The video contains really cheesy attempts at humor. She starts off by touting the processor’s strength. The 4X HD uses a Tegra 3 4+1 processor, and she says that it’s used to achieve great battery life.
A few cool features added to the 4X are a voice activated shutter, streaming video through HDMI while still using other phone functions, zooming into videos realtime, and one interesting other. The last feature described is in the browser. When holding an icon, you can tilt the phone back and forth to zoom in and out. Hold on a minute. This is a direct rip off of Samsung’s same feature on the last generation Galaxy SII. Except Samsung did it better. Instead of the clutter of an extra icon, you hold two fingers down and tilt the phone. And it’s perfectly smooth. The 4X shows a LOT of stuttering when zooming. LG, when ripping off a feature, which I don’t mind, you should at least rip it off right.
She also touts the full HD 4.7″ IPS display. She mentions that it has a striped RGB layout. While this seems innocent at first, it is probably a jab at Samsung for using Pentile in their Galaxy SIII. Fair point, LG.
