LG Thrill Optimus 3D Unlocked Android Smartphone
The LG Thrill is the US edition of the UK’s LG Optimus 3D. It also goes by the name LG Thrill 4G. What is most special is that it is the first 3D phone ever.
The Thrill is available in black. It is 5.07 inches in length, 2.68 inches in width, and 0.47 inches thick. It is thinner than the average smart phone; however, it is heavier than the average smart phone at 168 grams. The front of the phone has the beautiful 3d screen as well as four capacitive touch screen buttons located towards the lower section of the device. The four buttons are the menu, home, back and search buttons. There is an LG logo located toward the top of the front of the screen. On the left side of the phone, there is a microUSB port for charging your phone as well as an HDMI port. The HDMI port allows the user to conveniently connect their device with you television. On the right side of the phone there is a volume toggle switch. Below the volume switch is a 3D button. This button allows the user to conveniently go between 3D and 2D. The power/lock button is located on the top of the phone with the 3.5 mm headphone jack. The back of the phone is bare except for the camera and the loudspeaker.
The screen on the LG thrill is a 4.3 inch TFT display screen. It is a capacitive screen that is more receptive than a non-capacitive, resistive screen. It has a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, which is above average quality for a smart phone. It is a multi-touch screen and it has a light sensor and proximity sensor. What makes the screen more desirable than the average phone is that this screen has the ability to be 3D. The user does not need glasses to see the 3D effects. The effects are not like you would see in the movies either. Instead of things popping out at you, the screen appears as though you can look in to it. The great thing about the device is that you have the option to turn the 3D screen off when you are not really using it.
The phone is equipped with the Android 2.2 FroYo operating system. It runs on a 1000 MHz Dual Core Texas Instruments OMAP4 processor. The phone also has a recent version of Bluetooth, an accelerometer, a compass, and a built in GPS.
The camera in this device is impeccable. It is a 5 megapixel camera that can take high quality photos. The camera features an LED flash and auto-focus. The camera is also able to capture HD quality photos (1080p, 720p). Furthermore, the camera is able to capture 3D images and videos at a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Not only can it take high definition photo’s, it can take high definition photos and videos in 3D. The user can then look at their own images and videos on their very own portable 3D device.
The battery life of the LG Thrive is a little above average. It is equipped with a 1500 mAh battery and can withstand up to 7 hours and 30 minutes of talk time.
