One look at the LG Optimus 4X HD and the first thing that will come to mind is that the device is huge. It has a large 4.7-inch IPS LCD display which feels a little more rectangular in shape when compared to the HTC One X (read our review) or the Samsung Galaxy S III (read our review).
In terms of controls too you have the standard assortment of physical buttons. The power/sleep/wake button rests on the top of the device along with the headphones jack. The top is a more convenient place for the power button as compared to other devices that have it on the right panel. The volume rocker rests on the left of the LG Optimus 4X HD. It is really slim and blends into the left panel. For look and design this is a nice touch but ergonomically, it’s easy to lose the volume rocker. The bottom of the device houses the microUSB port.
On the specifications front, the LG Optimus 4X HD boasts of the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 1GB of RAM,16GB built-in storage (12GB user available), expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card. The HTC One X gives up on expandable storage by offering 32GB internal storage (26GB user available), however Dropbox storage is available. The Samsung Galaxy S III is the king here offering 16/32/64 GB internal storage (only 16GB variant available in India) and users can add another whopping 64GB via a microSD card – it also features Dropbox storage.
