We smell a 3D face-off coming. And it will be between the LG Thrill 4G for AT&T and the EVO 3D for Sprint. Both devices, which are launching in the coming months, boast glasses-free 3D displays. But the Thrill 4G (known as the Optimus 3D overseas) makes 3D a deeper part of the user experience. This device features a “LG 3D Space,” which guides users to 3D games, YouTube 3D video clips, and images. This hub is a part of the UI, whereas the EVO 3D just supports 3D content. You also get a blazing dual-core TI processor with dual-channel memory.
The Thrill 4G features a 4.3-inch display with 800 x 400 pixels, compared to a sharper 960 x 540 screen for the EVO 3D. In addition to a dual auto-stereoscopic camera, the Thrill 4G comes with 16GB of memory, HDMI output, and DLNA support. We spent a few minutes with the device and appreciated its responsiveness, as well as the 3D depth when enjoying a quick game of Let’s Golf 2. So far we prefer the 3D screen on the EVO, but the Thrill 4G is doing more with 3D games (at least thus far).
Our biggest concern with the Thrill 4G is AT&T’s network; so far we haven’t seen 4G speeds anywhere. Still, we can’t wait to put these two 3D phones head to head. In the meantime check out the below (2D) gallery.
