LG Optimus 2 X is in our offices, we are trying to its 1080p camcorder

Monday, February 7, 2011

We just received the LG Optimus 2 X and we couldn't wait to try it. We have some camera tests to you (on Optimus 2 X shoots 1080p FullHD video), along with live shots and also a hands-on video.

LG offers 2 X LG Optimus as the world's first dual-core Tegra 2 smartphones and impress us with its performance. But we have our doubts that Android 2.2 Froyo uses two cores (we're still running tests).

While that's going on, check out these live images of Optimus 2 x. There will be more to come and you can read our first hands-on impressions, which we'll post in the blog soon.

LG Optimus 2 X has come to our Office

The first thing we tried when we received the LG Optimus 2 X was the camera we've seen 8MP cameras before, but FullHD (1080p) video recording is a first for us. We have put on Optimus 2 X our compare photo tool and Video tool Compares.

Before we continue, here is a selection of videos uploaded to FullHD YouTube. Don't forget to activate the 1080p mode and open the video fullscreen.

Our first impression is that 720 p videos works very smoothly, while the 1080p video don t arrive fully the announced 24 frames per second. Still, video resolution FullHD videos are very good and you can see the details that are not present in 720 p recordings. But can the heavy video compression means some 720 p recording telephones solve an equal amount of detail in some situations (check out the resolution chart comparisons with the iPhone 4).

Low-light performance is very promising. In this part of our Video compare tools leads Optimus 2 X road.

When it comes to the still shoots prisoners LG Optimus 2 X 8MP photos. The quality is quite good, which was a relief considering we've seen some poor shooters from LG lately. We'll have more thoughts on the camera when we get our Preview ready. Here's the Optimus 2 X in the photo, compare tools.
