>LG Optimus 4X HDThat's thanks to Phones 4U, which is the first retailer to start selling the quad-core smartphone. The handset is cheaper than we were expecting, as the LG Optimus 4X HD can be picked up for free on a 24 month £27 O2 contract complete with 200 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of monthly data.

It can be set up on Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone, although Phones 4U isn't offering it on pay as you go.

The Optimus 4X HD is LG's answer to the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X, boasting a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).

There 8.9mm thick smartphone also features a 4.7in IPS display, an 8MP rear-facing camera with HD 1080p video, 16GB of internal storage expandable via microSD and a 2140mAh battery.

"The Optimus 4X HD is fast but speed alone isn't what makes this smartphone so great," said Dr Jong-seok Park, CEO and president of LG. "Differentiated User Experience and exclusive features LG engineers have developed for this device set this phone apart as much as its Tegra 3 brain."
