But enough with the hardware. The new LG Android 4.0 Optimus 4X HD uses the company’s latest “User Experience” along with a few a “pack” of applications meaning Media Plex and Quick Memo. Quick Memo is a note taking application that is displayed as a cover on the program you are currently running.

Among these features we can name: Fingertip Seek (that allows you to preview video frames), Video Speed Control (offers you the possibility to control the speed of the playback), Live Zooming (which, of course, lets you zoom any video that you are currently playing) and Thumbnail List Play (this feature displays thumbnails of your other videos at the same time you playback one of them).
