LG Optimus UI 3.0 for Android ICS detailed, will come with Voice Shutter and Quick Memo
LG will put its upcoming high-end phones the LG Optimus 4X HD and the LG Optimus LTE II in line with the times not only in hardware, but in software too, and we already reported to you some of the new features in their interfaces.

Now we get an official name for the revamped interface for LG's Android Ice Cream Sandwich phones, and it is... hold tight... LG Optimus UI 3.0! The stroke of marketing genius that brought us the naming scheme actually has its finger on the pulse of the competition, as the new interface brings it up to speeds with the likes of HTC Sense 4.0 in the One series, and the TouchWiz Nature UX in the Galaxy S III.

You will be able to unlock the phone from anywhere on the screen and go directly into the camera, which will have zero shutter lag, Burst and Best shot functions, the ability to take pictures while shooting video, and the rest of the goodies that come with the ICS camera API.

LG, however, is adding its own unique twist, with the inclusion of Voice Shutter, which can take a picture or start filming at a predetermined voice command like "Cheese", for instance. Should be handy for those who always end up capturing the party moments instead of being in front of the lens. 

An interesting introduction is the Quick Memo function, which is one of those "aha" moments - you will be able to scribble something on any screen quickly with your finger as a reminder. There is also the option to customize the Android icons, placing your own face, or any pic you'd like in the menu for a more personalized experience. Now the only thing left is for the first quad-core phone announced - the LG Optimus 4X HD - to hit shelves next month.

This "voice shutter" thing is already present in Samsung siii too. S-voice works in camera too, so you can say any command you like "cheese" to take pictures.

i love, love, love LG's Optimus UI 3.0 and that's a big deal because i'm pretty picky when it comes to these things but you could give me something like a LG Optimus 4X HD and i would actually use it instead of turning around and selling it or something.
