I've had it almost 2 years and the new ICS update put new life in it!
30 March 2013
Summary: Its been over 2 years since this phone has been released to the market. As of March 2013, AT&T released an Ice Cream Sandwich update, Android 4.0.4., which is a really nice addition to the phone. Now with a quick toggle you can turn off both Data and WiFi, and your battery will last more then 24 hours. Keep your eye on XDA-developers If you want more out this phone with ICS. 3D features are still unique to this phone, as no new 3D phone has come on the market since.
Summary: The LG Thrill@™ is fun phone to toy around with. The stereoscopic 3D games, such as Shadow Gaurdian and Modern Combat 2 3D are awesome. Also, the 3D camera is top notch. The included 3d apps are great too. Phone design is cool as well.
Summary: This is my second LG Thrill that I'm purchasing. First one ended up under a car. Gladly purchased another one rather than looking for another phone. It's quick to respond to things and good screen size for travelers that want something smaller to watch news clips or the like. The 3D is fun to play with, but not a reason alone to get the phone. Love the HDMI hookup. Use frequently to connect to the TV.
Nice fast all-in-one phone! Cheaper than buying a 3D camera!

Summary: The phone has dual 1.0 Ghz processors. Most of the top-of-the-line phones now have dual 1.2 Ghz processors, so the power of the phone was about 2 years ahead of it's time, it even already had 4G. I noticed though it came with Android 2.2.2 and can only be upgraded to 2.3 Gingerbread but other similar 3D phones can be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Summary: I like a good product but there are a few notes. element is sometimes reboots itself. Do not look at the two nuclear-CPU sometimes hangs. The battery is weak. The sensor is weak. But all of these notes, I like the phone I'm almost pleased at.
Buy it if you want 3D, buy another phone if you don't, good not great.

Summary: It's an awesome phone overall. It has a 4.3 inch 800 by 480 screen (slightly lower resolution than the newer phones). Very fast processor. Ram is only 512 mb, should be 1 gb, but that's okay. Battery only lasts around 12 hours, must carry a spare. For 10 to 20 dollars you can buy a spare + external charger on ebay to take care of this. The 3D makes this phone awesome, better than the evo 3d, and I have been told on par with the Nintendo 3DS.
Excerpt: AT&T customers who are waiting for 3D on your phone, it is now your showtime. Here is the LG Thrill 4G. First, this is a high-end phone, but I think it fails a lot of areas, especially on PHONE. Call quality is below average, reception is not on-par with other AT&T 4G phones, but data speeds were great because I usually get 5 Mbps down and 2 Mbps up.
Pros: 3D is great, better than HTC EVO 3D, UI is one of the better one on the market, and it is fast, Display is pretty nice-looking, definitely above average, Data speeds has been good
Cons: Camera performs below average, Reception and Call Quality are almost atocious at times, UI can be even better, Not as fast as it should be considering it is dual-core processor, Disappointing battery life, LG keyboard needs improvement
Excerpt: I'll start my review by saying that when I tell friends about 3D most of them think of it as a gimmick. However, when they see photos and videos on the LG Thrill, they change their mind. Yes, this technology is far from being widely accepted but the LG Thrill makes the conversion to the 3D side smoother. It's far from being perfect, though. For starters, the price tag is not set to compete with the rest of Android devices, and for a reason.
Pros: 3D is fun, Comes with microSD card and HDMI Cable, Affordable, Dual, 5mp Camera on the back and Front facing camera
Excerpt: Just got the phone skeptical about purchasing a 3D device and now I know why. The battery life on this thing is horrid as I charged it all night woke up to get on Facebook for 10 minutes and used up literally 30% of my battery. Charged it again to 100% before taking off to the office and after 45 minutes I'm down to 87% battery already from texting sending a total of 10 text messages. This is going right back to the store. Getting tired of hit or miss android phones.
Pros: Good price..., Doesn't feel cheap, Great keyboard and capacitive screen responsiveness
Cons: Battery is a ridiculously weak., Camera not that great.
Excerpt: Disclaimer: I am an At&t sales rep and this review reflects my opinion only. I have spent the last few days testing the Thrill and I have to say it is a great value for $99. Build Quality: The soft touch backing is very comfortable to hold and the phone itself feels like it has a good weight to it. The brushed finish above and below the screen gives the phone a classy look. Reception is good and seems to be slightly better than the samsung infuse 4g.
Pros: Dual Core, 3d, big screen, fast UI, good build quality, front facing camera. HDMI port and HDMI cable. $99 freaking dollars!!!
Cons: 3d is cool but not all its cracked up to be. Half the RAM of an atrix.
