Good but.....I still have a bad taste in my mouth from when I had the Thrill.

Right? I have the thrill and love it, but after the run-around they kept giving about 2.3 I don't think I'll buy another LG. Now if my rep wants to GIVE me one that would be different...

Why didn't they use their newest Optimus UI and not the old one? The new one is much lighter and has better graphics. I would never buy a phone with the old UI, but the new one so far, looks great!

I bought this phone. It's a very worthy upgrade. To me, it feels like a Samsung galaxy S II in terms of performance, weight and size....but with all the 3D stuff I want.

The dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 1GB of RAM give some degree of future-proofing as this is a higher spec than most of the Android phones being sold today. Ok, it isn't the top of the mountain......but they don't have 3D. This one does.

The extra memory means I can happily use ADW Launcher or Launcher Pro instead of the default UI and I see no performance hit. (I always turn animations off on ANY phone).

The Android v2.3.7 on this phone has a default theme that looks a lot like ICS. To be honest, I can't see much benefit in the upgrade to ICS, but I'll take it when it comes....No hurry here.

I'm absolutely loving this phone. Yes, I owned the original LG Optimus 3D. Yes, I had the ghost call issue on the Android v2.3 update.....so flashed back to Android v2.2.

The way I see it, LG will have pride and they also are a company that grew quickly and you don't do that if you can't learn from past errors.

The LG 3D Max is proof LG learns form its mistakes. I'm glad I bought it, despite the issues with the previous model. Hopefully the ICS upgrade will sort those out. Whatever.....I love the new LG 3D Max.
