Other features
Handset supports 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, Micro USB and GPS.

The handset is powerful, smooth, no lags, can play 1080p videos and had a good 8MP camera. The benchmark scores are equally impressive.

  • Quadrant Benchmark :  4864.
  • Antutu Benchmark : 13987.
  • Nenamark2 : 46.2
  • LinkPack : Multi Thread : 80.
  • Multi Touch : 10 point.

After full charge- used the handset for 18 hrs 43 mins remaining battery was 17%. Used more than average (A lot of R&D, some music, sms, calling, GPS(Locks instantly), wifi(browsing, youtube, download), little gaming(played multiplier online games for 30-35mins) at 50% brightness(even 50% brightness is enough to view under direct sunlight) – battery seems ok but did not get enough time to test battery performance with  lots of games/video playback though playing games seems to heat up the device and more battery consumption.

LG Optimus 4X HD review
A powerful phone with HD display resolution. Though the features are great with exceptional performance, this handset comes for a price of under Rs. 28,000. This may seem a cheaper option as compared with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The Google Nexus 4 is another competitor.
