LG Optimus 3D hands-on video

LG-Optimus-3D Earlier this week HTC announced their new 3D super phone, the EVO 3D. However, LG are somewhat ahead of HTC on this occasion as their LG Optimus 3D is just about to go on sale already.

Our friends over at Clove Technology have provided us with a pre-retail Optimus 3D to use for a few days so I thought I’d record something of a hands-on video for you to have a look at. I didn’t think it was right to call it an unboxing video this time as we’ve only got the handset!

The Optimus 3D is impressive with a dominant 4.3" 480×800 pixel display complete with 3D technology. The 1GHz dual-core CPU seems to be doing a great job if the benchmark score is anything to go by and this in spite of only 512MB of RAM.

As with other 3D devices the nature of the 3D technology means that the 3D effect only works with the screen in the landscape orientation so, although there is a 3D user interface, the use of 3D is limited more to media and games but the dual 5 mega-pixel cameras allow you to capture video in 3D at 720p or stereoscopic stills too.

Check out the video below to see a bit more of the LG Optimus 3D in action. Sadly we cant really show you the 3D elements too well but there’s plenty of other things to look at!
