Using something called "parallax barrier screen technology", the LG Optimus 3D holds the honor of being the first 3D capable phone. This glasses-free 3D experience is accomplished through the use of two 5MP cameras located on the back of the phone which record stereoscopic 3D video in HD.

To further the 3D focus of the phone, LG is partnering with the YouTube 3D channel, which provides a dedicated app on the phone, allowing users to upload/share 3D content.

The Optimus 3D boasts a huge 4.3-inch display generating 480 x 800 pixels, placing it among the top displays in both size and resolution. Add a 5MP camera with LED flash and auto-focus, HD video record (in both 720p and 1080p formats!), and a secondary camera for video calling, and it's clear that this phone wants to show off.

You also get an MP3 player, video playback in a wide assortment of formats, FM radio, full internet browser and built-in support for Facebook, MySpace and Twitter.

Rounding out this menu of fun, high-end features is GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, HDMI, 3.5mm audio jack and expandable memory up to 32GB.

The LG Optimus 3D is a powerful phone that breaks new ground, and is sure to cause a stir among users.

3D performance is good but lack content

from NDTV (over 3 years ago)

There are just two 3D smartphones available in the market today - the LG Optimus 3D and the HTC EVO 3D. In terms of ergonomic looks, UI and style, you are better off with the HTC. The 3D performance is however better on the LG. The depth perception, viewing angle and pictures taken in 3D look much better... More

A very attractive smartphone for the price, with great performance and lots of options

from Brighthand (over 3 years ago)

The LG Thrill 4G's capabilities may be a fun gimmick, but in the end that's primarily what they are. The 3D camera is quirky but eventually of limited use, and the 3D menus have even less of a shelf life. In the end, the 3D effects are good for a little showing off, and maybe occasional utility in the... More

3D screen, responsive, incredibly bright touchscreen

from What Mobile (over 3 years ago)

When used in the right conditions, LG Optimus 3D is an excellent experience – and you get all the benefits of a powerful Android phone too. But, the battery life is a problem and there’s a heavy price to pay to go 3D too.

Well made, display is pretty good, 3D games

from Geeky Gadgets (over 3 years ago)

The LG Optimus 3D is an interesting device, there are a lot of things to like about the Optimus 3D, and there are a number of things that let it down, we really liked the 3D features, especially the 3D games.Recording 3D videos is also a nice feature and we also enjoyed watching a few 3D videos on YouTube,... More

Overall performance is outstanding for the price point

from Engadget (over 3 years ago)

You may be tempted to consider the Thrill a niche product, and rightfully so. After all, there's no mistaking that it is -- first and foremost -- a 3D camera hunkered inside a phone. But in exchange for a Benjamin, you're getting a decent dual-core device that uses good (but not great) components throughout... More

It combines all of the lovely features found with any high-end smartphone on the market

from PhoneArena (over 3 years ago)

When it comes down to value, there’s no denying that the LG Thrill 4G exudes plenty of it from head-to-toe as it combines all of the lovely features found with any high-end smartphone on the market – plus, it’s tastefully complemented by its 3D capabilities. To tell you the truth, we... More

Overall, the LG Thrill 4G is just a mediocre device

from BGR (over 3 years ago)

I like the Thrill 4G because LG tried to differentiate itself with a device that could display and record 3D content. It’s a fun concept and works in practice, but it’s hard to recommend a phone simply because it offers 3D as an option. The third dimension, as it stands in mobile, is purely... More

It is assuredly one of the most versatile and affordable Android devices currently on the market

from Mobile Syrup (over 3 years ago)

If you can’t already tell, we really, really like the Optimus 3D. Its 3D features may seem gimmicky, and certainly they are, but they’re a bonus feature on an already-loaded product that blows away many of its competitors in terms of performance, screen vibrancy and build quality. It’s... More

The Android bargain of the summer

from Complex (over 3 years ago)

At just $100, AT&T not only gives its subscribers the best back-to-school option with the LG Thrill, it also offers the best Android deal, better yet, steal, on the market. The dominant hardware, standout 3D presentation, and improved 4G speed speak for itself. In comparison to the EVO 3D, we have... More
