Aaron gets some hands-on time with the LG Thrill 4G - the second 3D smartphone to land in the US - at AT&T's holiday event in New York City.  Sporting a 1 GHz dual-core TI OMAP processor, 4.3-inch display, and dual 5-megapixel cameras with HD video recording capabilities, it's identical to the LG Optimus 3D, save for a different battery cover and a few additional pre-installed applications.  The release date is still unknown, but AT&T confirms that the Thrill 4G will be launching in the "summer."

Thanks for your participation! :)

Kevin Loughrey No it sucks and its a battery wrecker
Tom Parkison Nope. I'm not even interested in 3D movies and 3D TVs.
Jose Loza It's not bad
Brad Freeman Not if it's lg
Andry Thérèse Not at all. I want a great smartphone but not with this option. I think it's useless. I can't pay for something I'd only use sometimes.
Sokpeah Proeun 3d is cool, I wonder for all the no"s in here yall havt even tried it for the test or you just scared of it and have poor eyesight haha, it has an off switch idiots.
Eric Quach the only thing that should have 3d would be TV and movie theater. but I'm still not going to buy a 3d TV.
Angel Miguel Peguero not at all 3d ain't for me
Jozef Sakac No Galaxy S2 ftw
Vanessa Simmons Nope... I think 3D is overrated
Alexander Balchev Why do people think that the phone is running 3D content all the time? What is hurting your eyes so badly? Are you playing constantly the games or watching the 3D menu all the time? It's an ordinary phone with 3D capabilities that turn ON when they're needed not all the time.. It's a plus to all other good specs, so why don't have it too available?
Anthony Ng FAILED going to be another g2x issue
Rick Tuinenburg If it does not hurt performance, and you can turn it off when your not using it... why not.
Eric Quach Its a gimmick. and you hurt your eyes after a while. its a strategy to jack up the price. its cool for a while, but it gets old real quick.
Darryl Mouzone No. It's just a fad and it will pass in a few years.
Nick Barbian Some what. Why dont you guys send me one then ill let you know.
Anthony Dunlap i like the evo 3d for its other specs...but just about every other high end android has the same specs...aside from sense 3.0...sooooo....NOOOOOOO its too much on the eyes
Dylan Grubbs I was going to come on here and just say "no no no no no no..." bit there have been so many no's that I no longer feel the need to do that.
Brent Legendre i dont like 3d anything. Its pointless
Jean Pacrim Gimmick!!!!!
Sergio Nayar Not at this point, maybe 2nd Gen.
Kou Xiong 3D anything is a no for me
Joshua Taylor 3D phones suck waste of money they are just like 3D TV's
Travis Brown They interest me. They dont enamour me. If its the best phone minus the 3d id get it and the 3d is bonus. Not a make or break tho
Roberto Williams just a gimmick, besides there isn't content to support the idea
John Dickinson no not really. I want a phone that's reliable and has decent battery life
Anthony Evans Jr All current 3d phones are fail
Karen N Edgar Garcia I own the evo 3D and it's really awesome, especially when you watch 3D youtube videos.
Rob Peña No, not really ...HTC and other companies should improve battery life instead...
Zak Taylor One word... no.
Melissa Cruz-Guzmán Yes! No headaches here, and I love my EVO 3D!!!!!! :)
Anthony Tyson Yes. Very much so
Allen Pudge Sells No they don't lol
Samuel Claudio Its too much, a phone just need to be a phone.
Derrico Brown YES. After you have played a cool 3D game on your phone, if kinda sucks playing a 2D game after that. 3D movies make you feel like you're right there watching it happen, and taking 3D pics/vids is pretty cool too. Do we need 3D? No. But it keeps my interest, and wows everybody I show it to. Other then the locked bootloader, there's a lot of satisfied Evo 3D owners. If you haven't used one, try it out in-person before you judge
Omar Green Not in the least...the very definition of gimmicky
Vincent Lai nope and makes no sense
Skye Villanueva Nope...that's why I still have my evo and not the evo 3d
Michael Santangelo Nope.. I don't want a headache while using my phone....
Patrick Singleton Waste of money
Aj Green hell to the no!!!!!
Nick Goetzinger we live in a 3 dimensional world, why the fuck do i need that on a phone.
Jesus Perez No and no since its on att
Jarrel Ennis No, plus it gives me headaches
Darren N Anderson Nope, but I'm FEELIN' those Dual-Core 1's deh.
Lennes Shaw Had an evo 3d but I took it back I didnt think it was worth my money. The 3d is more like those hologram cards instead of 3d
Marcus NinersEmpire The evo2 will interest me or another HTC fone
Nathaniel Hull They should prolly take the money from the 3d , and put it towards expanding, and improving 4g!!
Nathaniel Hull Just the dual core inside of them (*
Robert Salender Imagine porn. J/K. Ummm... no. It's a reason why I'm also not a 3DS owner.
Anonymous If it is free yeah but since its not no
Ivan Pena No, it hurts my eyes
J Alberto Garcia Flores No, its just more money out of our pockets. I'd rather pay more for more battery life.
Anh-Tuan Le It only interests me if my master, Darth Jobs, commands that it interests me.
Eric Alan Holloway Maybe, I'll have to try it out first.
Nadia Merhai No, they don't.
Gerardo Armenta Not at all just get spb shell 3d
Taavi Kala No, 3D in general is so overrated. On phones it's even more useless than in cinemas/TVs.
Keshawn Robinson Nope its annoying
Derrick Wimberly Jr. All ik is either way phones are goin to all be 3D sooner or later plus other things so ya why not. Let's see how well they work, ill try one
Logan Hall whens this coming out
Brandon Campbell I don't like 3D one bit.
Adrian Edwards I'll pass... I don't see the benefits. Its just a gimmick.
Brandon Durkin I got my hands on the new sprint 3D phone a few days before it came out. Its a cool concept and looks neat but its not practical nor useful really. 3D video and pictures and you can toggle between 2D and 3D...pointless
Stephen Wagner No.its stupid.
Kelley Kearns no way! the screen looks like crap and hurts my eyes.. i'll stick with my iphone!
Mark J Lenkner Not the least bit - I'd rather see them work on things like battery life and reception issues, than add 3D capability...what next, 4D? C'mon...
