LG Optimus 3D review: This summer, in 3D

22 July 2011
The magical allure of 3D is stronger than ever but manufacturers struggle to meet the demand for better and cheaper ways of 3D capture and viewing. And while glasses may feel alright in the cinema, wearing them to watch TV is perhaps too much...

To be honest LG was the first to market a 3D phone. and it looked good at the time. but 3D in general is dead and buried. people dont want headaches as this and the Nintendo 3DS gives you. 10 out of 10 for trying, but the market does not need this type of phone.

              Review the worst I saw a smartphone, highly suspect, not where they got those tests with some 3D Optimus broken. With the benchmark ANTUTU, or Quadrant, is among the fastest on the market, comparing with the Samsung S2. With good software upgrade becomes one of the best, of which probe. OMAP430 CPU is one of the best eh seen, and the dual chanel memory, makes it much faster than some with 1GB of Ram. And the camera takes better pictures than most, the pictures come out equal to what one observes without distorting the image or adding colors unrealistic. And capasidad to take pictures in low light, make it very similar to the camera of Xperia ARC. I think GSMArena testing another P920, not the same as me.

Certain processors devote themselves to having high bm scores without being able to back them up in rl performance, and I have a feeling this is what happened with the O3D. The 3VO is a capable device that is let down by a heavy OS (Sense 3).

                                      Anonymous, 23 Jul 2011lg optimus 3d is a well built android device with a better ... moreTotally agree about the 3d, it screwed my eyes up too. Playing Asphalt proved difficult as you cannot tilt the phone to control. 3d is not comfortable to view yet, still maybe better technology or software changes could do the trick. Decided not to buy phone, or should I say device.

                                        Technically LG isn't the first with these specs. SHARP released the 003SH Disney Android in Sep 2010 with 3D screen, and the SH-12 Aquos Android only a few months ago on NTT DOCOMO - the SH-12 at the time already had dual 8Mpx cameras for 3D recording with the appropriate 3D screen.

                                        I don't know why these phones don't get the credit they deserve. The SH-12 is fully unlockable (it's Android) and usable on any HSDP+ or GSM network.

                                        Shame really.
