Holiday Gift Guide 2011
BEFORE YOU BUY, based on BarnettJr2's tips, pick up this phone at Costco for $30 w/$FREE accessory kit (too tight case, fine car charger, & ok screen protector)(Sign up for a new Costco membership to save more!)! And you can get this phone at Best Buy for $FREE right now!
I bought this phone for the 3D. This is the 2nd 3D phone available in the USA (Sprint HTC EVO 3D was 1st). LG's Thrill 4G does beautiful 3D photos and video and you can even output 3D via HDMI! I think the Thrill 4G phone w/3D is better OVERALL than the EVO 3D, even though the EVO 3D has a few better features. Note, Thrill 4G only displays 3D in horizontal view (EVO 3D can display 3D images in vertical and horizontal views), but this may just be a limit of the camera software and 3rd-party software may fix that (Common Google! And update YouTube to make finding 3D videos easier!). I've only rarely had the phone lock up do to the 3D camera software being left running too long, but other times it was fine when left running.
Recommended hardware upgrade for the future would be 3 camera lenses on the back of 3D phones to take 3D photos and video in ALL horizontal or vertical views!
See a 3D glasses-free phone in person to appreciate the depth 3D creates! I love 3D photos, watch 3D movies, record 3D video, and play 3D games (I played 3D games on my 1986 SEGA Master System!). I'd love 3D interfaces and/or apps with 3D layered menus 3D zoom effects to manage items on small displays better. You could tilt your phone to "look around" 3D objects! Every phone should have 3D since 3D phones usually have a button to quickly toggle 3D on or off, because 3D is not for everyone, but it is for me!
I also recommend the Case-Mate LG Optimus 3D Pop! Case w/Kickstand (available @ AT&T & on eBay). Drill a small hole above the hole on the bottom to create a lanyard anchor point!
