LG Optimus 2X P990 Expansys for £234.99

helpingabrotherouthelpingabrotherout

As the world's first dual core smartphone, the LG Optimus 2X sets a new benchmark in performance. The NVIDIA 1GHz Tegra2 dual core processor makes everything, from navigating the Android operating system to browsing the web and application multitasking, work with impressive speed and virtually no lag. Everything underneath your fingers is fast and smooth, no matter how hard you push the Optimus 2X.

Utilising the two 1GHz processor cores and its 8 megapixel camera the LG Optimus 2X can record and playback video in full 1080p HD, and the HDMI socket lets you show off your photos and videos on your HD TV. The Optimus 2X has a 4 inch touchscreen, with 800 x 480 resolution and the NOVA technology from LG that offers excellent contrast with deep blacks and strong whites.

I Know its Expansys and not as good as the Amazon deal but still a brilliant price for a excellant phone

    Its an excellent phone. The equal of any.
    Expansys doesn't have a good rep though. Maybe better to wait and see if Amazon do it again for £200 (as they do for a VERY brief time now and again)

    Expansys box shift sourcing phones every day so are far more dependent on others for good rep.

    I've used them for years without any problems whatsoever.

    It compares pretty well to the HTC Evo 3D that Asda are selling for £250, a bit smaller, thinner and lighter with nearly 8x more storage, so probably a decent deal.

    True, you can only speak as you find. Ive just seen all too many bad stories about Expansys, admittedly not of my own experience, but people do tend to go by experiences of others with a company.

    I came across this at Expansys several days ago. Never used the company. Shame it's not at Amazon at the same price or lower as would order without hesitation, but am still hesitating. Looked on Amazon.de but it isn't there either. Remember pay by credit card then if something does go horribly wrong with the buying experience or with the product and the retailer is unhelpful you can take it up with your credit card company.

    The '15PAYPAL' discount code doesn't work with this product. With Quidco you can get 5% cashback.

    Can't see this phone cheaper anywhere else.

    This is an interesting comparison review. Kind of surprised when the guy says that the screen for both of the phones is made by LG :

    I got mine from expansys 5 months ago. Turned up when promised and I love the phone. No idea whether its better than an iphone, though my son thinks it looks better than his iphone3.

    Well I bought a slimline external DVD drive from Expansys, arrived today. Never bought anything from them before and tempted getting the LG Optimus from them as they are currently the cheapest.

    Can't fault the ordering process, quick delivery too. DVD drive is the right one, only problem is that it's not the exact model spec as advertised on their website. They have sent me a model which doesn't have a stand for vertical positioning of the drive. It could be they've been sent an incorrect batch, but it still should have been picked up by someone at their end as now I have to return it.

    Will have a chance to test what their customer service is like for returns.

    If this phone re-appears on Amazon then I'd rather get it from there.

    Trying to return the DVD drive I was sent. Expansys is from what I can see another 'Pixmania' type of company, it's roots I'm guessing from the returns procedure are French.

    Returns is too faffy. They arrange a courier - and I have to wait for the courier to call me. Best thing is my order was send 1st class Royal Mail from the UK but my returned item is being sent to Montpelier in France ! Logistically crazy, especially for an item costing £20 !

    I have this phone, and I can't say I'm impressed. On stock ROM it was diabolical, with random shutdowns, poor call quality, rubbish battery life and laggy interface after using it for a few days. Add to that the **** customer service from LG, including releasing Gingerbread 9 months later than promised. Most of the problems have been solved with custom ROMs, but my next phone won't be an LG for certain.

    Would anyone reccomend this over the Evo 3D or suggest a similarly priced alternative to either?

    My vote is for Evo 3D.
    Faster CPU, more RAM, 3D Camera, Larger and denser screen.
    And HTC confirmed ICS upgrade (citation needed).

    Well I really do not see a reason going for 2X, probably for larger internal memory ?

    Again, speak as you find. Ive found the stock rom to be excellent.
    Tempted to try something else, but scared off by tales of bricking the phone.

    i have it for 2 months now, and i love it, would love to have q2 version (full hardware keyboard) but there is no way to find it anyway

    superb quality, and perfectly working AFTER you tune software a bit (rooting needed) as it is its weak side, but when you do remove all unnecessary stuff it works perfectly

    once you remove all bloatware it actually is way better than iphone in my opinion, but if you want to use it out of the box you most likely WILL BE DISAPPOINTED
