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.
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
Summary: The LG Thrill 4G certainly lives up to its name, as its stunning 3D effects and speedy processor make this $99 handset feel like a steal. Users looking for more battery life in a 3D handset should consider the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint.
Conclusion: We really like the LG Thrill 4G, especially at the surprisingly low $99 contract price. It's a fast dual core Android phone, and though we're a little disappointed that it runs Android OS 2.2 Froyo, AT&T says it will get the Gingerbread 2.3 upgrade.
Pros: High end specs and performance at a low price, enjoyable 3D.
Conclusion: The LG Optimus 3D is an interesting phone that fulfills pretty much everything it promises. It feels gimmicky, though. We’d be inclined to wait a couple of generations for the glassesless technology and power consumption to improve before we adopt 3D in our smartphones.
Excerpt: LG’s Optimus 3D combines a fast processor, Google’s Android operating system and technology for capturing photos and video in 3D and viewing them – without special eyewear – on its own 3D display.
Pros: 3D camera provides good images in decent light, Feels sturdy and well made
Cons: 3D camera struggles in darker environments, No flash for 3D camera, Older version of Android OS, Onscreen keyboard could be better
