LG Optimus 3D, First Impressions

One of the most interesting innovations of the MWC This year has been the emergence of the mobile first with the ability to play 3D without glasses and, obviously, in this field highlights the LG Optimus 3D that comes accompanied from the LG Optimus Pad, a similar tablet that also comes prepared to create 3D content, photos and video, but not to reproduce it – as we were told in LG, screen is too large to make the 3D without glasses work properly-.

The 3D seems to be a technology that divides society between those who love it and those who do not support it. The first praise field depth and realism, the latter speak of headaches caused by. The LG Optimus 3D It seems to have reached a term with a phone with graphic drawings which can activate the 3D with a dedicated physical button when we want. Moreover, the mobile allows you to define the depth of field that we want for our 3D at times, especially in games.

The LG Optimus 3D It has a 4.3 inch screen a 1 GHz dual-core processor and comes with Android 2.2 that according to LG will be updated rapidly to Gingerbread.

3D content there is available photographs, games, applications, videos on YouTube and a part of the operating system. In addition the LG Optimus 3D It has two cameras 5 megapixel camera for stereoscopic recording – i.e. in 3D-. Videos are played in 2D 1080 p and 720 p 3D; It also has an HDMI output that allows to take 3D images to enjoy them on our 3D TV.

On the other hand, one of the questions that we did was the extra complication that could lead to creating graphics in 3D for developers; well, it seems that create applications in 3D for this phone is as simple as doing them for Android, you just have to send the application with two fields of graphics and LG render handles.

The general feeling that we have with the LG Optimus 3D It is that you it’s a good mobile, with a feature that highlights of the majority. Personally I think that the colors on the screen are too saturated – at least in mobile that we saw-, I guess it’s as well to try to improve the contrast in the 3D. This makes it a mobile something ‘canton’ and that both shine tire – reminds me a bit to Asian tastes by the vivid colors -.

The 3D display is not perfect, since the angle of view is limited – only one person – see the 3D and keep the phone to about 30 cm in the face to see it properly.

The LG Optimus 3D It will be available in Europe in May and the price is not yet known.
