  • On the right side, there is a microUSB and HDMI port.
  • On the right edge, there is a volume rocker button.

Memory & Battery

  • The handset comes with 8GB of built-in storage with a slot for external storage for more consumptive users.
  • Since apps running in 3D mode are a power eater.  Battery drains far more quickly as compared to ordinary smartphones.
  • The battery is just average.


  • The 1GHz processor is very powerful but a few legs were noticed in between. In conclusion this shows that the software optimization is not that great.
  • The current handset runs on Android 2.2 but an update has been promised for the future.

3D Features

The good points:

  • Video viewing experience is really great. As a result,  you don’t need glasses for the 3D on Optimus 3D to work, you will just need to look at the screen at precise angles. Once you get used to it, it’s pretty easy to figure out.
  • The gaming experience is also amazing!!! Because there are some pre-installed games for trial.
  • There is a setting you can use to reduce the 3D-ness to help reduce the strain on the eyes.

The bad points:

  • 3D viewing really puts a strain on the eyes.
  • If viewed from a different angle the screen seems fuzzy.
  • 3D screen sharing is not possible, however you need to physically give the phone to someone for them to see.
  • During games, you constantly need to look at the screen at the precise angle.


LG Optimus 3D: Conclusion

Overall this handset is good but it can’t really be recommended as this is the first phone of its type. Since it might improve after a few generations of development. If you are not a big fan of 3D functions, you might want to steer clear of this handset.
