Both phones have the same block form factor which is hardly stylish but they are still elegant and slim with nice finish. Galaxy S II is a little wider than Optimus2x but slightly less thick. It also weighs only 116g compared to 139g of Optimus2X. I think in the end there’s nothing much to choose from as far as the design is concerned and it all comes down to which one fits more perfectly in your hand.
Galaxy S II had a Super AMOLED TFT 4.3 inch touch screen with 16M color support and a standard resolution of 480*800. Optimus2X features less modern TFT Capacitive touch screen with the same resolution and color support It is quiet responsive but the crisp Super AMOLED of Galaxy S II simply has no match.
Both smart phones are powered by 8MP cameras. The LED flash camera of both the devices with autofocus offers geo-tagging, face and smile detection, image stabilization and touch focus. Both phones are capable of recording HD 1080p video. Samsung manages to take slight edge in camera race with it 2mp front camera compared to 1.3MP of Optmimus2X.
Processor And OS:
Samsung Galaxy S2 has 1.2 Ghz Dual core processor and Optimus 2x has 1 Ghz Dual core processor. Samsung Galaxy S II has the Samsung’s own Exynos dual core processor while Optimus 2x uses Nvidia Tegra 2. The powerful processors run Android 2.3 OS in Galaxy S II and Android 2.2(Froyo) in LG Optimus2X which is upgradeable to Android 2.3.
As far as the storage capacity is concerned Samsung again out powers the rival with 1GB of RAM and 16/ 32GB internal memory. Optimus2X has 512Mb RAM and 8GB of internal memory. The Storage capacity of both the devices can be increased by SD card support up to 32GB.
The connectivity features of both the device are very much the same with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n support and wifi Hot Spot feature and USB 2.0 support but Samsung has the latest Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP compared to 2.1 with A2DP. It also has USB on the go feature.
Undoubtedly both phones are feature packed and powerful devices but Samsung Galaxy S II has a clear edge over LG Optimus2X in most of the important smartphone features but this doesn’t mean a defeat for Optimus2X, it still has a decent display, a very good camera and a powerful processor which most of the smart phones are unable to match. They are priced almost equally and expected in India at a Price of Rs.30,000 to 32,000
