LG Optimus 3D Hands-on

0. phoneArena posted on 14 Feb 2011, 09:12

The LG Optimus 3D is one of the top Android smartphones in terms of processor specs - LG claims that its dual core, dual channel and dual memory platform is way more powerful than other “simply” dual core phones. We ran Quadrant benchmark on one of the prototypes here at MWC...

It has 4Gb of RAM not 4GB. for those who don't know the difference between Gb and GB it is: Gb = Gigabit, GB = Gigabyte. There are 8bits to a Byte. therefore 8Gb is actually 512MB of RAM. Therefore Galaxy S II with "only" 1GB has twice that of Optimus 3D. It's LG's way of marketing to make 512MB sound more than it is to fool people who don't know any better. If Samsung did the same they could claim 8Gb of RAM.

4gb of ram is interesting, if not impressive. However, will it actually be helpful when it comes to improving the android experience? I personally don't think so, not with the current OS and available applications. But, then again, higher specs isn't always about necessity, it's also about impressing the customer and convincing them to buy.

They didn't give 4GB without a reason, I think that whole 3D experience is the reason.

ya, even if u never use 3d, the specs are a total beast. dual channel ram... ya, this phone will be a contender for a while as long as it has proper XDA support.

Correction: I just realized that it is actually 4 Gb not 4 GB. That means it only has 512 MB of ram.

I think Apple is hiding something really big for the next generation iPhone/iPad after all this smart phones conventions!
But this people (LG/Samsung/HTC/Sony/...) get a step forward...now!

He doesn't sound like a fanboy at all... you on the other hand, sound biased against Apple.
And he clearly wants the other companies to all come up with great phones. Because he understands competition is GOOD, and being simply pro-Apple or anti-Apple is stupid as a consumer.

even after you turn the 3D option off, you still have a well rounded, high end phone which is worth taking a look at (for me its either this or the galaxy s II)

I am a to each his own kinda guy, but how much is 3D effect really worth here? Nice high end specs, but if the tech wasn't wasted on a gimmick phone, LG would have a top end contender as opposed to just a phone trying to get people to look at it. More power to ya if you want to spend this kinda money on this kinda phone or marry it for two years, but what if the performance is crap?

The dual phone! Dual core, dual ram, dual processor, dual camera it has the most porwfull chpiest IOMP4 I think this phone already kills galaxy s2, atrix with the 3D camera and IPS LCD screen and two camera with 1080p@24fps 720p@30fps it's only 5 m pixel camera.

Somehow I don't think this whole 3D thing is going to catch on. Novel idea though, and a good way to separate yourself from the crowd.
