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
Summary: 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, Fast dual-core performance, 3D Photo and Video Recording, 1080p 2D video recording, 30fps video recording, HDMI output
Cons: Poor battery life depending on usage, Ships with 16-month-old Android 2.2 Froyo, A bit thick, 3D screen can make your eyes tired, 3D effect doesn’t support head tracking or angle of incident
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. If you're content with 2D, you may want to wait for the Galaxy S II, which promises even speedier performance in a slimmer body. However, if you want eye-popping 3D in a speedy, affordable package on AT&T's network, your phone has arrived.
Pros: Fast performance, Good sound, Fun 3D experience, Great price
Conclusion: To wrap things up I'll go ahead and post a few more photos for everyone to enjoy. It was really quite fun working with the Thrill 4G this week or so. At first I didn't like the covers on the ports but I've grown to like them and its now a preference instead of just something I'd deal with. I myself don't own a 3D TV or I'd have tried out some 3D videos that is for sure, watching it from the device is plenty enjoyable if you are ok with just having 4.3" of real estate.
