LG Optimus 3D vs Optimus 3D MAX – are there enough changes for an upgrade?
25 March 2012
Conclusion: LG Optimus 3D MAX doesn’t offer many changes inside and out. If you still have last year’s Optimus 3D, an upgrade isn’t really necessary unless you feel the need for new specs and features like streaming 1080p and 3D videos to HD TV, NFC technology, and a faster processor. But if you’re still planning to get a 3D phone, LG Optimus 3D MAX would make a great first.
Conclusion: If you're in the market for a bigger Android smartphone, the LG Optimus 3D is well worth a look. We're still not entirely convinced that 3D technology has a lot to offer the smartphone world, but there are other features here that also impress, and the screen is a cracker.
Pros: Even before you take the 3D screen into consideration, the LG has got a cracking display. At 4.3 inches, it's the perfect smartphone for watching movies on or sharing your photographs, with lovely bright and colourful image quality. Hit the 3D button on the side, and the LG Optimus comes into its own. Some of the 3D imagery – including games and videos – are absolutely stunning, although you'll have to be looking at the Otimus 3D from the perfect angle to get the best...
Cons: The main downside to the LG Optimus 3D is its size. Sure, the 4.3-inch screen is lovely when you're watching films, but this phone is huge in comparison to other smartphones. If you want a pocket-friendly handset, this isn't the one for you.
Conclusion: The first question to ask is, do you own a 3DTV? If you do, the LG Thrill becomes a much more interesting proposition, since any 3D videos or games you can play on the phone can be displayed via HDMI on the big screen, and you can capture your own 3D photos and video at reasonable quality levels.
Conclusion: The LG Thrill 4G does not thrill on many accounts outside of its pretty 3D display. Having said that, no other phone beside the HTC EVO 3D can even claim to have glasses-free 3D, so it’s a plus. This is a good dual-core phone that holds up in most areas beside battery life. We’re hoping LG issues an Android 2.3 update soon. If it did, the battery life may improve quite a bit. Overall, for the $100 price, this is a far better phone than some that AT&T offers.
Pros: 3D display is novel, Has some fun games installed, Solid construction, Dual-core processor, 4.3-inch display, 16GB storage (8GB internal, 8GB SD)
Cons: Poor battery life on idle, Runs Android 2.2, Camera is slow, poor in low light, 3D button doesn't work as camera button, 3D camera adds bulk to phone
Excerpt: The LG Thrill 4G is naturally the AT&T version of the LG Optimus 3D, which we previously reviewed . It’s designed to compete with the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint as a GSM flavored Android phone featuring 3D imaging and display technology. The Thrill 4G also features three technologies that are “dual” in nature; a dual-core processor, dual-channel data transport and memory, and dual-memory chips.
Pros: + Glasses-free 3D screen for 3D games & 3D Movies
Summary: 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, although the content is limited with no 3D movies available for the device at the moment.
Summary: The Optimus 3D is something of a novelty, being only the second 3D capable phone in India. However, it isn't the fastest device around, and neither is it the sleekest. It also debuts with Froyo (Android 2.2). Spending Rs. 37k (MRP) on this doesn't make sense, especially when there are other options available albeit without 3D. You must be a real fan of the whole 3D phenomena to opt for the Optimus 3D.
Pros: 3D without glasses, Dual cameras capture good quality 3D images and 3D videos, Excellent display quality- crisp and vivid, in 2D and 3D modes, Solid build
Cons: Android 2.2 is ancient, 512 MB RAM is too little, Battery life is mediocre ï¿½ a day with careful use, The handset is bulky
