The Good Glasses-free 3D screen; 3D photo and video recording; Speedy dual-core processor.
The Bad 3D only works in landscape mode; Little 3D content outside of YouTube; Chunky and lacking in style.
The Bottom Line The LG Optimus 3D is a pretty humdrum smart phone with one spectacular trick up its sleeve -- a glasses-free 3D screen. If you're into three dimensions, it'll be worth a look.
LG Optimus 3D
The LG Optimus 3D has one thing going for it. It's the first mobile phone to offer glasses-free 3D. So, if that's what you want, go ahead and buy it. But, if you think 3D on a phone is as useful as a chocolate teapot, then there's no other compelling reason to invest in this big, heavy beast of a phone.
The Optimus 3D is available from Carphone Warehouse for free on a £35 per month contract. You can also buy it SIM-free and unlocked for around £490.
The Optimus 3D packs a 4.3-inch touchscreen that displays 3D pictures and videos without the need for daft glasses, unless you normally wear glasses anyway. All the phone's pre-loaded 3D content is gathered in one place in an app called 3D Zone. Getting at it is easy via a shortcut on the home screen or the dedicated hot-key that sits on the side where the camera button would normally be. Outside the 3D Zone and the camera app, the rest of the Optimus 3D is in normal 2D.
