Features

The Optimus 2X has a bunch of dope features including my favorite: The HDMI output! What this badboy does is it allows you to connect the Optimus 2X to any HDMI enabled TV or computer. What does this mean you ask? Simple> you can watch anything on the phone's screen on your 52 inch HD TV or any computer! This is perfect for YouTube, watching home videos in a group, streaming movies, or any movie you download, you can watch on the big screen! If that does not knock your socks off, what the heck will?


Sneak Peek

LG L95 Optimus 2x Carrier

There has been lots of speculation about what network the Optimus 2x for Straight Talk is going to run on and after lots of searching around, we found that it is NOT 4G LTE as previously stated on the straight talk page and simply put: Since the LG 2x is nearly the same as the LG G2x, we feel pretty confident to report that the LG Optimus 2X is going to run on T-Mobile. This makes the 2X the first Android (GSM) phone on T-Mobile which may or may not be a great thing depending on where you live. What we mean specifically is you're either going to get lightning fast 4G connection or you're going to get stuck so we strongly suggest you CHECK your T-Mobile coverage BEFORE you get this puppy. If you're lucky enough to have good T-Mobile coverage, then this is a deal you cannot pass up.


HDMI for LG Optimus 2x Straight Talk

For those of you that are not familiar with HDMI we want to say: come out from under your rock! and for those that are familiar with it, then you know how kick ass it is to have an HDMI port on an Android Dual Core phone right?! Right!
Here's the catch, from what we can tell, this phone does not bring the cable, so you are going to have to go out and buy it separately but it is well worth getting. We suggest not going to the major retailers like Best Buy but instead, search for a micro HDMI cable for mobile phones on Ebay (Don't worry, Ebay is for the most part pretty safe and you should not spend over $10.00 for this item).
So back to the powers of HDMI... You should know that in order to use this feature, you need a high defenition television with an HDMI port so before you get the cable, get the TV. If you have both then, you're in luck and the phone is ready to go as soon as you plug it in. Just change your TVs input to HDMI and anything you see on your phone, you will see on the big screen. This can be really cool for games like Angry Birds, Facebook, or even YouTube.
