Very soon this will be a reality for the end consumers, as the LG Optimus 3D, which is to be released as the LG Thrill 4G in the US, and the HTC EVO 3D are set to grace the mobile scene in the coming months.
That's why a lot has been said about the "3D on smartphones" topic, but what's really important is whether consumers want or, indeed, need a 3D screen or the ability to shoot 3D photos and record 3D videos on their future smart devices. For that reason, it's time to ask you:
Will 3D play a role when you choose your new smartphone?
Yes, it's a whole new dimension for smartphones, both literally and figuratively!
Nope, it's much hype about nothing – I don't need 3D features on my mobile device.
It's something nice, but not too important, so I won't overpay for a smartphone with 3D.

The specs on the EVO 3D is what has everyone excited- not the 3D. Same with the Thrill. Shut off the 3D, save the battery, you have a powerful, future proof (as much as can be) devices.

Yes I like the specs more than the 3D. I do like the fact that I will have 3D on my HTC Evo 3D if I want it. The 3D effect is only used when you want it, which is great. I was worried that it was going to be 3D all the time. I like the fact that HTC made a sweet powered phone first and foremost. The 3D was just icing on the cake. I can't wait until June comes around so I can get my HTC Evo 3D. It's going to be a beast of a phone!

I could go for it, especially after using the 3ds, I really like the depth of the screen. But all in all I wouldn't spend any extra, just the usual high end price.

I've seen the 3DS and if the technology of smart phone 3D is on that same level I won't waste my time. While, yes it is cool, the viewing angles are too specific and the effect is not major enough to change my mind based on that fact alone.

3D in my opinion is just a battery drainer. What's the point of having 3D on a phone? No point but to drain battery power. The specs on the Thrill and Evo 3D are what is everyone looking at, not the 3D features. Save 3D for consoles and movies:)

3d technology in general is overhyped. Most 3d TVs look terrible and give me a headache same for 3d cameras and 3d movies at the theater (minus avatar which looked good) I just don't see how having it on a phone would be cool much less needed

until its avatar quality nearly all the time and with a decent viewing angle, its not an important feature. The best part of these phones are the beastly specs.. especially on that LG with its "first for a phone" dual channel memory configuration that will have a solid boost on real world speeds.
