The LG Optimus 3D takes its act to the U.S. as the LG Thrill 4G for AT&T; the carrier's web site shows that the handset is "Coming Soon" and is expected to be launched sometime this summer as the first glasses-free 3D model for AT&T...

i hear ya Phone Arena and i agree, this phone could hold it's own against the competition and tout it's 3D capabilities.

Not to mention get LG to be considered with other top device makers.

512mb just doesn't do it anymore for high end phones. HTC has stepped it up with their phones using 768mbs and yes that extra 200mbs of free RAM does make a difference.

Well it is DDR2 RAM which does improve it alot. The 768 like in the Desire HD and Sensation is only DDR.

they say it uses something called "dual channel ram" i don't know the first thing about it but it sounds good to me. xD

Its Really a gig or ram, dual channel means that there is 512mb per core...DDR2 does make a big difference here as well. Hopefully this will hold over until the SGS2 comes stateside

so then it's a trait of the OMAP4 which means the Droid 3 might have this dual channel DDR2 ram, that's why they can get away with having 512 MB of it, because it's per core. sorry, i know it's off subject but it's something i've been wondering about.

Dual-channel doesn't mean it has 1GB of memory, it means the RAM is divided into two separate 'channels' that can be accessed simultaneously. Instead of having 512MB that can only have one segment being read at a time, you have two 256MB channels that can be read simultaneously, increasing overall throughput and memory access speeds.
17. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
you could be right but it's possible they mean 512MB per core as well. it's really down to how they specify the amount of memory it has and unless you can explain that too then i don't know but i'm going to remain optimistic.

They don't mean 512MB per core, dual-channel memory has been used in desktop PC's and laptops for years now, it simply means the memory controller can access multiple memory modules simultaneously.

I wish we(AT&T) would have gotten a version of the HTC, I've just never had any luck with LG phones. Doesn't mean I wont check it out though. :-)

This phone sounds interesting, but I'm not sure about a high end LG smartphone. I have not had any impressive moments, with any of LG's equipment. On paper it looks pretty awesome, but so does the Motorola Atrix. :-(

you should see the LG G2x for T-Mobile, you'll have an impressive moment in your pants when you use that thing.

LOL. You mean because it overheats, reboots, and generally doesn't work half the time?
13. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
well the bugs are a real issue for the device but i don't own one, i've only used one so of course i never experienced any overheating or power cycling. it's still a very impressive device, it just has to be fixed with some updates that's all.

Ill give my review of the droid 3 once I get it tomorrow. Ill see if it also offers the dual channels for RAM and the overall performance. I know its available online only at verizonwireless but I'm really surprised there isn't any unboxings or hands on from websites like PA. Usually even before a phone is available there are.
20. RORYREVOLUTION (Posts: 2842; Member since: 12 Jan 2010)
After spending about an hour with the droid 3 I can safely say it is an awesome upgrade. The screen is much larger and the keyboard is actually spaced out and they keys are larger and the extra row for numbers is excellent. The phone only has 512mb of RAM however so no dual channel or anything like that. The new blur has a new slide through homescreens effect as well as a sliding app draw like samsungs touch wiz. The phone is running 2.3.4 and has a correction feature even for the qwerty keyboard so when or if you accidently fat finger a key it will allow you to select a word to fix it.
I really like the keyboard and the phone is pretty responsive and smooth. Tho its not as smooth as the sgs2 but it works very well.
So in overall I would say if 4 inches is your soft spot and you really need a qwerty keyboard and don't mind its not LTE, this is definitely the device for you.

I have taken photos comparing it to the droid and droid x if you wish to see them.
