The T-Mobile G2x is the first dual-core Android smartphone for T-Mobile and has impressive hardware. Some people may also like the plain Google Android experience on the device as well.

The T-Mobile G2x comes in the standard solid, colorful T-Mobile box with just a few accessories.

There isn't much else in the box except for a cable, charger, and some pamphlets. You don't get any microSD card with the device.

The G2x has a 4 inch display with 480x800 resolution.

The G2x is slightly narrower than many other large display smartphones and it feels great in your hand.

Notice how the glass curves around the sides and corners a bit to give it a very finished look and feel.
