LG Optimus 3D is one of the two smartphones that Sanya, Erik and I reviewed for the upcoming episode of Pop Talk on GMA News TV! (I believe that episode will be shown next Tuesday, October 11, 2011, 10PM - GMA News TV! Please watch it, TP Friends!)
UP Athlete Erik Aguilar, Rock Royalty Miss Sanya Smith holding LG Optimus 3D, and me -- in that order. :)
Quoting myself from my first LG Optimus 3D post (Head on over to that entry for the complete technical specifications of this amazing handset, TP Friends),
The coolest thing about LG Optimus 3D isn't so much its svelte case, its massive screen, its Android operating system nor its dual core processor (though, I have to admit all those features are really cool too), for me, it's the fact that this smartphone - get this - can capture and playback true 3D photos and videos. Yep, I think that's what puts it above all other dual core Android phones in the market today.
So what does LG Optimus 3D have that other flagship phones don't? For 3D capture, it has stereoscopic cameras at the back. And for 3D playback, it flaunts a 3D LCD, which is perhaps the first display of its kind on a smartphone.
TP Quick Hands-On!
In between shoots, I took the opportunity to record this quick hands-on video:
The phone's battery was already low (as in borderline drained from the hours of extensive features 'testing' that we did) when I recorded this clip and some of the specs-intensive 3D apps weren't launching. Good thing I was able to open the 3D gallery, which is really cool. I think the video captures the gorgeous design and stellar build of LG Optimus 3D -- I promise you, it's one of the best-looking phones I've seen. Hopefully LG sends us a unit soon so I can show you MORE of it.
TP Quick Review:
Let's do this the Pop Talk way (Because I love love love Pop Talk and GMA News TV!) --
Design: Pop! I mean, just look at it:
Side view; Check out the sleek metal lining.
Clad in brushed metal, sturdy plastic with matte finish and scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass, LG Optimus 3D exudes an aura of durability and elegance. You'd love to flaunt this phone in meetings with business partners or parties with friends.
Features: Pop! It totally deserves the 3D suffix. You don't need glasses to see 3D on the phone or to connect to a 3D TV to appreciate 3D content captured using it. The magic happens on the screen itself. Like what I said in my first post, I was totally blown away when I first saw my 3D photo on LG Optimus 3D's screen. Believe me: This Android phone - with all the powerful features that come with Android - lets you capture life in 3D and wows you with its first-of-its-kind 3D playback.
Value for Money: With SRP of Php 29,990, LG Optimus 3D - for me - is the most sulit phone in its price category. It's a flagship Android phone with sleek design and top technical specifications and it's a 3D device in every sense of the word. I highly recommend it. If you can, give a unit a test run at an LG Store near you.
