Writing on the wall...

I am going to open a debate here and am looking forward to hearing your replies.

Does anybody see the writing on the wall for this phone or other phones that adopt 3D technology? While I think 3D technology is great, is it really necessary to bring to the phone? Smart-phones are in essence phones that are to bring all of our tasks (entertainment, news, communication, etc.) into one device. Now I can see where it has its pros for entertainment now, but, as far as I can see, the pros end there.

Any input that can help arrive at a different conclusion?
Well, I've had one of these puppies for awhile now. Have to say most 3D gaming is pretty nice. But also 3D pics & vids r great also. I've tried Galaxy SII & SII Skyrocket, both really good, fast phones. However the TI OMPA dual core (DUAL CHANNEL) pro...

Menu lights at the bottom of the device don't stay on long enought...

I am unable to find any adjustment to keep them on. I'm talking about the Menu, Home, Return and Search fixed buttons at the bottom of the device. Is there ANY way to adjust the time that they stay on or make them stay on with the screen??? This is very frustrating. Any advice.

Thank you,

How is the reception folks?

Are you getting the same or better reception than other phones you have (had)?

If you live in a "4G" area, are you getting it?

How is the screen in the sunlight?
Reception as good as my Moto Atrix. Actually on Wi-Fi, Quadrant & Smartbench, Thrill was about 10% faster than Atrix. On Linpack Atrix 44MFLOPS - Thrill 70MFLOPS. So very fast & smooth. Screen on Thrill chrisper & brighter than Atrix, which makes it b...

Love the phone...few issues though...

Coming from Sprint, the Evo.

Picked up the Thrill Saturday and although the phone is great, I have some issues that may be a deal killer.
1) Under the contacts there is a section for notes. I have some contacts with several paragraphs of notes. However with the Thrill the note section is limited to a certain amount of characters. I'm losing access to important information.

2)The bottom row of hardware buttons does not stay light up for very long and when you need it, you have to guess and hope you're hitting the correct button to light them up and even then they only stay light up for a few seconds. I've checked all settings and can't find any adjustment...

3) The camera lags when starting up. Not a huge deal, but there are some ...

Any news on when we're getting this?

Come on, anyone? When's AT&T getting it to sell for themselves?
Will not release until tomm. Sun the 4th, however The Shack & AT&T-Mobile DO HAVE units on hand, so the 4th is DEFINITELY the DAY ! ๐Ÿ™‚
The Shack WOULD NOT even release mine, even though it is a deposit paid pre-order. Also even though Radio Shack, n ...

Been a long wait ! !

Well certainly has been a long wait. However looks like Sept.4th is good to go on Thrill availability !! Just hope the one available is black, not dark blue. AT&T Optimus version (that AT&T has as demo units) has an extremely good viewing angle versus the blue diamond pattern on back of unit, which has had a limited viewing angle. Actually The Shack get's truck n on wednesday's, so maybe I'll b able to get on 31st ? Sure have been impressed with Smartbench, Quadrent & Linpack scores of unit. Although Samsung Galaxy SII is somewhat faster & of course killer SUPER AMOLOED PLUS screen is a killer screen, with chrisp & ultra bright colors & less voltage usage, since background is naturally black, with no power use. Until next week. Later, Freddi...

This or the infuse?

I'm going to be getting an atnt company line and I am curious how this would stand against the infuse. The thing that intrigues me the most is that its a dual core with 3d functionality, and I want a dual core for when android ice cream sandwich comes out and a 3d phone, but the infuse is pretty sweet too..
Infuse not dual core, not bad phone. Also Thrill is dual core cpu with dual channel
ram. Tested Moto Atrix(I Have) & Thrill on Quadrent & Smartbench, Thrill about 10% faster on both test. Slightly smaller screen than Infuse 4.3 versus 4.5. So if u ha...

LG Thrill @ AT&T stores

Not for sale of course. But they do have the
unit for employee training purposes. Played with one for more than an hour today. Fairly impressive, very fast & I use a Moto Atrix
dual core. 3D takes a little getting use to. I happen to have mono vision (1 eye for reading & 1 for distance), so 3D doesn't work to well for me. The 1 they had did say AT&T LG Thrill on box, however it was an Optimus (same phone), diff appearance. Not darkish blue carbon fiber appearance on back, brushed Aluminum upper & lower of front screen area Black brushed, chrome around edge anodized black instead of chrome. Radio Shack sticking with 8/21 delivery. Lighter & thinner than my Moto Atrix. Screen brightness & crispness similar to Atrix. So go down to u're local ...
@ AT&T-Mobile store again today, checking more features of LG Thrill. Store manager said I could pick one up Sunday 14th. I suspected as much, since they've had their training LG Thrill for more than a WEEK. Oh BTW, n 2D mode screen is brighter & cris...

Unnoticed phone power & speed !!

A lot of folks are waiting for the Samsung Galaxy SII. Killer phone 1.2 ghz. dual core, 1 gig ram, etc. However even though the LG Thrill 4G is only a 1ghz (TI omap) dual core & 512 megabits of ram. What we're missing is it's not only Dual Core processor & ram, it's ALSO Dual Channel. It's like 2 four lane highways instead of 2 two lane highways. So basically it carries twice as much data, the Thrill can carry two thirds more info from point A to point B. Even though it runs a little slower, because it carries twice as much !! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Optimus 3D should be the phone EVERY SINGLE AT&T CUSTOMER is waiting for. Being a Verizon Sales Rep I drool over the fact that you get this and we do not. Dual core? 3d display? great design? What else could you ask for? Ohhh yeah...Perfection. And no one will give LG that chance or even the same courtesy they give HTC or Crapple... ๐Ÿ™„ But I guess thats why they made it for AT&T...and the joneses type customers that come with it. ๐Ÿคฃ
Phone does seem nice, but to be honest, its easier for AT&T to pick up devices like this, seeing GSM is far more global and very similar phones are offered.
Well i am waiting for all the 3D phones. Looks like i will purchase a 3D phone ๐Ÿ˜. I do not think that Apple will be able to match the 3D phone market. What you think?? ๐Ÿคจ
I am a Verizon customer and It would be super nice to see a version of the Optimus 3d released on the Verizon network. Not only is the 3d aspect really cool, its a very powerful phone, probably the most powerful phone yet released.

While its all well and good:

What happens when you transfer these captured 3D Pics and Vids to your PC or send them to another phone?

the Display is the key, along with the camera, i get that... but will images and vids be 3D (but need glasses) when viewed on another machine?
My guess is that there will be imaging convergence technology imbedded in the software for printing photos and sending to other handsets.

This looks like fun. We'll see how it does with the masses.
