LG Optimus 2X plagued with freezing issues, random reboots

Launched in Europe and Asia earlier this spring, the LG Optimus 2X is the world’s first smartphone to feature a 1GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor.

Of course, this is one of the reasons why many customers rushed to buy the new Android handset. Some of them are regretting this choice now, as their Optimus 2X reportedly has serious issues.

There’s a lengthy thread over at the XDA Developers Forums, plus an online petition and a Facebook page, all of which imply that a number of Optimus 2X smartphones “freeze and often reboot.”

The issues seem to appear only in Europe, so T-Mobile’s version of the smartphone, dubbed T-Mobile G2X, is likely not affected.

According to Trusted Reviews, LG is aware that

“a few Optimus 2x customers are occasionally experiencing random device shut-offs. While this does not affect every customer, LG regrets the inconvenience this has caused.”

Fortunately, LG has provided a fix for the problems, via a software update that you should be able to find here.
