AT&T is finally set to launch its first 3D smartphone, the LG Thrill 4G. No, that 4G doesn’t mean users will be able to take advantage of AT&T’s soft launched 4G LTE network, but the Thrill will begin burning up AT&T’s previous-generation fourth-generation network when it becomes available for purchase this Sunday, September 4th. We reviewed the LG Thrill 4G last month and we were a little surprised by the fact that we really did enjoy recording and viewing 3D content on the device. Overall, however, we found the Thrill 4G to be a mediocre phone that’s bulky, heavy and not overly competitive with modern Android offerings from the likes of HTC and Samsung. At $99.99 however, those looking to play around with the 3D features shouldn’t be disappointed. More →
We spent some more time with AT&T’s first 3D-capable handset — the LG Thrill 4G — yesterday, and we have to say, it might deliver a better 3D experience than Sprint’s HTC EVO 3D. 3D viewing angles for 3D content seemed much better in our limited time with the handset. The phone itself felt good to hold and use, with a solid soft-touch rubberized finish and brushed anodized metal accents on the front of the device. The LG Thrill 4G runs a dual-core OMAP processor and it features a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, dual 5-megapixel rear cameras for 3D photo and video capture, and Android 2.2 Froyo. It should be available this summer, though rumors have suggested the device will be released sooner rather than later. Check out the rest of our photos of the LG Thrill 4G in our gallery below.
