LG Optimus 3D Max review: Hands-on


The LG Optimus 3D Max is the brand's second handset to feature a glasses-free 3D screen, but this time it packs the brand new 3D Games Convertor

The LG Optimus 3D Max looks like a definitely improvement on its predecessor. One of the biggest complaints about the LG Optimus 3D was that it was too bulky, so LG has taken this on board and given the new handset a noticeably slimmer profile. The...

LG Optimus 3D review


Last year we were talking about 3D TVs and this year, it seems, 3D is fighting its way into other devices. We're yet to really see people proclaiming that 3D is essential so it remains somewhat niche in its appeal, but for how long? The LG Optimus 3D...

It's a 3D phone, HDMI, LG's customisations make for a nice user experience

Size will be too big for some, design isn't quite premium, some unexpected slowdown takes the shine off things

A technological achievement slightly marred by day-to-day foibles. It's big and bold, but won't suit everyone

LG Optimus 3D


LG has had a good run of form with its Optimus series of smartphones. The Optimus One was a solid little thing for a good price, then it branched out and up into fancy phone territory with the quirky dual-core charms of the Optimus 2X, before tackling...

Excellent 3D screen and effect ; Big, accurate keyboard ; Some good LG social and web interface additions ; Smooth 2D 1080p video recording

Poor battery life ; Bland hardware design ; Slow to unlock ; Can also be slow to respond to some touches ; Not running the latest version of Android

2D video recording options are more limited than in the still camera, with users able to change resolutions, select from a few white balance presets, put on a handful of sepia and negative filter effects, toggle audio recording and set the phone to...

LG Optimus 3D Max hands-on


Like its predecessor, the LG Optimus 3D Max offers glasses-free 3D tech, but it's been improved by dropping some size and weight. Will this latest iteration put 3D in more people's pockets? Stay tuned for a full review soon.

3D without wearing daft glasses ; Slimmer and lighter than predecessor

Won't ship with latest version of Android ; 3D effect won't suit everyone

We aren't convinced that 3D has a place in the smartphone world, although we do appreciate the way LG offers more than just 3D photo and video capture.

We aren’t convinced that 3D has a place in the smartphone world, although we do appreciate the way LG offers more than just 3D photo and video capture. Aside from this, the LG Optimus 3D is a capable handset, albeit an expensive one.

LG Optimus 3D


LG's Optimus 3D is one of the most hotly anticipated handsets of the year, thanks to its stereoscopic camera and glasses-free 3D screen.

Speedy performance ; Good call quality ; Glasses free 3D screen ; 3D camera

Short battery life ; Screen's 3D sweetspot is very tight

The handset's 4.3inch screen is obviously one of its key selling points. In 2D mode it really can’t be faulted as it's extremely bright and has deep rich black levels and bright, punchy colours. The resolution of 800 by 400 pixels also ensures that...

LG Optimus 3D P920 review


The 'world's first 3D phone', LG's Optimus P920 is a large, well-built handset with a 4.3in touchscreen and the older Google Android 2.2 Froyo operating system preinstalled.

LG's Optimus P920 offers a glimpse of what's to come for consumer technology, but 3D is still far from mainstream. If you don't already have a second 3D playback device, you may find yourself quickly tiring of the functionality when used only with...

LG Optimus 3D review


Not even mobile phones are immune to the march of 3D, the technology fad of the moment. LG's Optimus 3D handset is the first smartphone we've seen with a 3D display. Like its chief rival, HTC's Evo 3D, you don't need a pair of glasses to view 3D images...

Terrible battery life spoils what is otherwise a fast Android smartphone with fun 3D capabilities

LG Optimus 3D review


The LG Optimus 3D is a pretty humdrum smart phone with one spectacular trick up its sleeve -- a glasses-free 3D screen. If you're into three dimensions, it'll be worth a look.

Glasses-free 3D screen ; 3D photo and video recording ; Speedy dual-core processor

3D only works in landscape mode ; Little 3D content outside of YouTube ; Chunky and lacking in style

The LG Optimus 3D can stand tall asthe first phone in Britain todeliver glasses-free 3D. If you're planning to invest in a 3D camcorderanyway,or you're a 3D addict with a telly to match, the Optimus 3D does asolid jobcreating and displaying 3D on the...
