LG Optimus 3D Advantages And Disadvantages | Battery Is Not Enough For A 3D Phone

A huge high-res screen, a new chipset expected to deliver beyond anyone's wildest hopes and 1080p video recording: the LG Optimus 3D sounds like a great package and we haven't even started yet. These are big ones no doubt, but not even close enough to making the headline. Not with a stereoscopic screen and a couple of 3D video-recording cameras at the back.

Having beaten all the competition to bring the first dual-core smartphone to the market, LG is now racing to get to the 3D checkpoint ahead of HTC. Read here for the pluses and minuses of LG Optimus 2X.

Well, Dual Core, Dual Channel, Dual memory and it has a HDMI port. If you are not aware of what this is about. Watch the video below in this post. It will get you a better idea about the dual things.

There's a world of difference between a mid-distance TV viewing and a close-range phone. We have understood the difference between the Actual TV and the small mobile device, and taking all that into account this review is prepared.

LG Optimus 3D Advantages And Disadvantages  Battery Is Not Enough For A 3D Phone 1

LG Optimus 3D using paralax effect but how will it be different this time around. We are yet to feel and see this one. And will it last? As few people have expressed their dis regret on 3D Model.

On the 3D note, Few have reported that they get a headache after using the 3D camera for more than five or ten minutes due to the way it displays the picture. The 3D content on the LG Optimus 3D is much better, with clearer images that are far less brash.

Meego is really good but now they are not supporting it fully. So what if it catches on this 3D and lets say 50 million people like it but then manufacturers cease production as technology moves ahead.

As of now, this mobile is awful to get something you like and its a one off. I really hope this smartphone succeeds and slowly 3D becomes quite commonplace.

As most of the other smart phones, LG Optimus 3D also lacks battery stand by time. I don't understand why cellphone companies release such powerful phones that barely last a day. If you are a gamer, you can play them for 30 minutes before my phone dies.

Seriously, LG Optimus 3D supports just 1500 MAH battery on a 3D phone is really a joke and  its not enough. Of course, the major problem with LG Optimus 3D is battery life. Though EVO 3D is not much better too. There must be some software upgrades to solve it or else u will need a 2000MAH battery to gain a happy face.

Its main advantage over HTC EVO 3d is its screen resolution. Since gingerbread Operating System and most of the android apps are not optimised for GHD resolution, LG Optimus 3D is better choice.

Note that, HTC is known for smart business class phones, they are not known for camera phones. Good old LG cookie snap gives better snaps than HTC Desire.

The Ram in LG Optimus 3D is dual channel 512X2 = 1024 it has best Ram in the phone market.

3D is simply a gimmick in LG Optimus 3D. However, not all movies are good watching at 3D. 3D-movies are cool once in a while, but most movies are not made for 3d Technology. And those have problems to fill TWO dimensions with something interesting.

80° of 3d viewing angle in LG Optimus 3D before it does the annoying hologram effect. Not the star wars hologram effect, its like one of those cards that change image as you look at it from a different angle. From what i saw, the 3d doesn't pop out, but it pops in like looking out of a window at the grand canyon.

What I like about this phone is 3D both capturing and viewing. And Dual Core, Dual Channel, and Dual memory. It will outperform all smartphone out there in market.
