After LG released its Optimus 2X in the States as the G2x on T-Mobile, we started hearing tales of various problems with the phone. Some users seemed to skate by just fine, but others reported their smartphones being plagued by resets, among other bugs. While T-Mobile initially distanced itself from such reports, it later confirmed that it had received complaints from “a small percentage of customers”, and that
Terry Horvarth has filed suit against LG in California, representing G2x owners. He accuses LG of failing to live up to its responsibilities spelled out under the G2x’s warranty. Supposedly, LG must know by now what’s wrong with these handsets, yet it’s been withholding support necessary to remedy the situation.
We haven’t heard any word from LG yet, but might this be the pressure needed to get it and T-Mobile around to actually releasing the promised G2x update? If that ends up resolving many of these issues, that could be case-closed. If that update’s not forthcoming, or doesn’t adequately address the G2x’s issues, LG could be in for a fight on its hands.
