Good Riddance: T-Mobile G2x Reaches End of Life



Usually when a phone hits its End of Life Status (EOL), it’s a cause for sadness. It wasn’t easy saying goodbye to the HTC Droid Incredible and we even shed a few fake tears for T-Mobile’s G2. However, today, TMoNews is reporting that the LG G2x for T-Mobile has reached its EOL and quite frankly, I’m glad.

The T-Mobile G2x, in my opinion, was one of the worst launches in smartphone history. Seriously, it’s right up there with the HTC ThunderBolt.

LG’s first dual-core Android phone was plagued by problems right from the outset: It suffered from random reboots, battery life issues, freezes, sluggishness, and more. You name it, it’s likely that the G2x, at least at the start, had it.

And T-Mobile only made things worse.

Soon after it was discovered that the phone was having issues, it mysteriously disappeared from stock. T-Mobile said that it had to do with supply issues due to high demand, but I think we all know what the problem really was. Supply issues generally don’t keep a phone off of shelves for two months.

The problems seem to end after the Android 2.3 Gingerbread roll out but that doesn’t change the fact that this phone clearly wasn’t ready to launch. Or the fact that it took owners on a ridiculous journey after it did so.

Needless to say, it left a sour taste in my mouth and I’m not sad to see it go. I’m sure there are a few of you that loved the thing but quite frankly, the mobile world and maybe even LG (I am reluctant to buy a LG phone now) would have been better had it never launched at all.

    I won’t even go near an LG phone as a possible option come contract renewal time because of the G2X. Never owned an LG phone but it’s such a horror story.

    I have one and like it, but unless HIGHLY recommended by users I trust, LG is off my phone list.

    I had, one and got rid of it because of the freezing that happened after gingerbread and the Bluetooth kept crapping out. it was nice though.

    I’ve never even heard of this phone.  I had considered the Revolution for a hot second but thought better of it.

    The G2X was my first and last LG phone I’m going to own. I’ve had nothing but issues with the G2X from day one when it launched. Even after the Gingerbread update, I get freezes and slow downs with the phone. I can’t wait until my contract is up so I can get rid of this lemon.

    I concur completely!!!!! I was a first time t-mobile customer last year and of course, they were raving about the “best” smartphone G2x I got it and its been hell! Im now on my 4th G2x thankfully i got the warrenty, but they wont give me anything else >.< just keep giving me all the leftover G2x sitting on there warehouse shelves And offered to rush my "upgrade" of course i would have to pay $400 for another stupid phone and get another 2 year contrct NO THANKS………………T-Mobile is losing this customer as soon as my contract is up!!!!!!!

    Hi.. I was giving this phone for my birthday not knowing at the time that there would be know update even to gingerbread as promised. I will never buy from lg anything again. with the default software i had problems with my keyboard not working good. Rooting is good gets your phone in working order again. will be getting rid of this phone! I should of gotten the nexus!

    I called LG and they told me the G2x will not be getting any upgrades past gingerbread. They told me repeatedly that they had no idea of any issues with this phone and its the best phone ever. They also said that if I wanted to fix this phone then buying their new phone would be the fix to the g2x problems. Hahaha. Roflmfao. LG can kiss me where the sun don’t shine. What audacity those “F”ers have. Don’t count on it you LG Aholes. I will never buy another product from you thieves.
