T-Mobile G2x

If you are looking for a smartphone that offers outstanding gaming features, the T-Mobile G2x may be the phone you need. This 4G phone offers fast speeds, a dual-core processor and a beautiful display screen. This smartphone runs on the Android 2.2 operating system, which includes a variety of Google apps such as Gmail, Google Maps and YouTube. The T-Mobile G2x is the perfect device if you are looking for a phone to entertain, not just to communicate.


This smartphone offers a stunning display screen with gorgeous, sharp and vivid images. The T-Mobile G2x features a 4-inch touchscreen display that offers 400 x 800 pixel resolution. The screen is large enough that you can view movies or TV shows, play games or browse the internet easily. The phone is a little large but does not feel like a brick when holding it in your hands. This smartphone is 4.88 inches tall, 2.48 inches wide and it is 0.43 inches thick. It also weighs 5 ounces, which doesn’t make it feel too heavy or seems like a burden carrying around with you.


An 8-megapixel front facing camera and 1.3-megapixel rear-facing camera are the cameras available on this smartphone. And not only do they take outstanding pictures for a smartphone camera, they also capture full 1080p HD video. This is a standout feature on this device, as most smartphone’s don’t offer full HD recording. There is also an LED flash and auto focus features to help ensure you get even better image quality.

All of your basic multimedia features are available on the T-Mobile G2x such as a music player and access to email. The NVIDIA Tegra 2 AP20H dual-core processor on this device make gaming and streaming media fast and smooth.

Internal Specs

This smartphone offers a variety of features and tools you need for placing and receiving phone calls. A few of these features includes call holding, call waiting and conference calling. Caller ID is provided on the T-Mobile G2x, along with full access to your call history. Your call history will display information such as the number called, the date, time and duration of the phone call.

Battery Life

The T-Mobile G2x offers an excellent amount of talk time. You can talk, text and play for 420 minutes before the smartphone will need to be recharged. We were disappointed in the 288 hours of standby time available on this smartphone. We’ve come to expect a smartphone to have at least 325 hours of standby time.


The T-Mobile G2x runs on the Android 2.2 operating system. Using this OS, you get access to a variety of Google applications and access to the Android Market. The 4G capabilities give you much faster speeds for opening programs, browsing the internet and downloading applications than 3G is limited to. This device also has Bluetooth and GPS capabilities, and if you pay a standard monthly fee, you can use your smartphone as a mobile hotspot for devices such as laptops and tablets.


The T-Mobile G2x is a smartphone designed for the gamer and multimedia guru. With the dual-core processor and the ability to record full HD videos, there is a wide variety of options you can enjoy. The design of the phone is a little large, which is a bit of a drawback, but the beautiful display screen, the 4G capabilities and the Android 2.2 operating system make up for where this smartphone may lack.
