Will 3D play a role when you choose your new smartphone (Poll results)

Will 3D play a role when you choose your new smartphone (Poll results)
Much has been made from the fact that the first 3D-enabled smartphones are nearing release - that's certainly an exciting prospect in the long term, but we were interested to see whether you guys actually want a 3D screen or the ability to shoot 3D videos on your phone right now - or there is some artificial hype about all things 3D.

Almost half of you (49.21% to be precise) claimed it's something nice, but not too important, emphasizing that they won't overpay just because a certain phone has 3D features. Then we have 27.05% of you who say (or rap, if they are Public Enemy fanboys) something along the lines of "Don't believe the hype (about 3D)" and inform us that they don't need 3D on their phones. Last in our poll are the lads with the positive answer (23.73%), who tell us that 3D is a whole new dimension for smartphones, so, yeah, they sound kinda excited to us.

im one of the 49%. i do believe it's a great milestone but im willing to wait for 2 years so that prices will be stable and reasonable.

I think just like most hard ware it wont or should not be a selling point untill the software and more importantly the soft ware standerds incorperate this new tech. If you get this feature and there is little content then really its like having palm os. Great platform with little app suport.

I'd rather have other features like more RAM or longer battery life rather than 3D capabilities...

I agree with #17. more RAM and better battery life, that would be frickin awesome. I just think the whole 3D craze is over-rated. In theatres and on phones. shhhtuff gives me a headache sometimes...

I agree more with the comment about the headache.. make my phone slightly heavier with a better battery im ok with that. my psp isnt fully retired yet. GRR i want my phone to last 12 hours of heavy use lol. Ram increased would be godly.

I actually would not buy a phone with 3D on it. Get the battery life figured out first. I cant beleive they keep making new gimmicks for these phones without fixing the battery life first.. If this is the way Android is gonna keep going I will switch to the iphone. At least my girl can get 2 days out of her iphone battery..

I don't know...I just feel like it's a gimmick in such a huge way. Sure, it's awesome in watching movies...Avatar and possibly Tron Legacy being standouts. And with the Nintendo 3DS it's cool...but I can't think of a single reason I'd need it on my smartphone unless we are talking 3D Holograms or something. I'm with BDaniel17...give me more battery life and more RAM.

Cell phone manufacturars create more devices just to make money!!! take Samsung, they just created galaxy s and then s2 very shortly then they are researching on S3. They are not standardizing the first version properly. Simply, today's technology is for tomorrow's museum.
