LG Optimus 3D - Keepin' it Real

Launch SRP: S$938


Acquainting Yourself with the Optimus LG 3D

The user experience on the LG Optimus 3D is similar to the one on the LG Optimus 2X, so getting around the phone was pretty self-explanatory. Like the Optimus 2X,  the user interface (UI) on the Optimus 3D seems to have taken a leaf out of Samsung's TouchWiz UI, featuring a blend of widget-positioning and app shortcuts.


The LG Optimus 3D also comes with an embedded smart content conversion software embedded in the phone that allows users to convert existing or newly-captured 2D content - specifically photos and videos - into 3D, and vice versa. As such, the Optimus 3D offers more flexibility in terms of 3D creation and content sharing as compared to the HTC Evo 3D. To add on, an upcoming free software for converting 2D games to 3D will be available for download in the fourth quarter of 2011, a move which will effectively expand LG Optimus 3D's 'portfolio' of 3D games.

The LG Optimus 3D is unfortunately equipped with a slightly outdated Android 2.2 OS but an official LG spokesperson has informed us that the Gingerbread update will be coming in the fourth quarter of this year.
