LG Optimus 3D pictures: Hands-on with 3D smartphone

Hands-on with the LG Optimus 3D smartphone

Launching alongside the LG Optimus Pad, the LG Optimus 3D has landed sporting a bevy of glasses-free 3D credentials, beating the eagerly awaited Nintendo 3DS to the punch.

Sporting a 4.3-inch 3D WVGA capacitive touchscreen display the Optimus 3D offers crisp, clear visuals when displaying 2D or 3D content. Much like the upcoming 3DS the Optimus 3D’s extra-dimensional content does not jump out of the screen at users instead added subtle yet very noticeable depth to images.

The 5-megapixel dual-lens camera residing on the device’s rear allows users to snap 3D images yet sadly, despite having tried on a number of units, we were unable to get the 3D snapper to launch during our hands-on experience.

Asides from its name-giving 3D aspects the Optimus 3D is an all-round high-end device running Google’s Android 2.2 mobile operating system, FroYo. Feeling slightly large in the hard, the Optimus 3D comes across on first use as less sturdy than desired with little confidence being placed in a misguided drop or accidental bump.

The area of this 1GHz dual-core processor touting handset that provides the best use of its 3D credentials is the user interface. With 3D app centres the LG device uses 3D to its Optimus Prime, sorry, optimal prime with much thought and time clearly having been spent on the user experience.

Are 3D phones the future or the latest in a long line of passing trends? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
