What You Need to Know
  • The latest batch of Android phones have super-sized screens, but this one isn't quite that big at about 4.”
  • We still think smaller is better when it comes to smart phones, so we like the size.
  • It's noticeably bigger and thicker than the iPhone.
  • It feels solid and is one of the nicer looking Android phones we've seen.
  • The phone doesn’t come pre-loaded with extra software and widgets.
  • It's running stock Android 2.2, which means no widgets, no crappy, uninstallable NASCAR app and no 2 GB Avatar movies to get in your way.
  • The interface is fluid and responsive, and gets out of your way so you can get things done.
  • It also has the new dual core Tegra 2 processor.
  • We gave the G2x a workout with 3D games like Need for Speed and Cordy and for the first time in our tests, we didn't see a single skip, stutter, or dropped frame while playing Cordy.
  • The Tegra 2 processor handles Flash well, too.
  • Most videos played with little or no lag and the browser remains responsive while Flash loads and plays.
  • The G2x has full HDMI out. You can play back 1080p videos on your 62” plasma and it'll look as good as a Blu-ray player.
  • It also has DLNA support, so you can stream HD videos to compatible devices like a PS3 or a media center.
  • We recorded some questionable videos at full 1080p and they came out looking as good as most handheld video cameras.
  • The rear facing camera is 8 megapixels and our pictures came out better than average.
  • Images were sharp with low noise. In daylight, colors were a little washed out.
  • There's also a front facing 1.3 megapixel camera for video chat.


  • This phone also runs on T-Mobile's 4G network and is completely free if you are a new customer and sign up for a two year plan.
