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."

Alexander Balchev
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?

Marko Teullet
Marko Teullet No
Derrico Brown
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

Marcus NinersEmpire

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
