LG Optimus 3D MaxScore Details “This Phone Has a Great 3D Effect, But It Runs on An Outdated OF Android, HAS POOR BATTERY LIFE, FEATURES A CAMERA THIST DOCENOSNANT HOLD UP ...”

LG hasn’t had a ton of commercial success with its Android phones in the United States, but in Europe and other regions, its Optimus brand has been doing well. Last year, we reviewed the LG Thrill 4G, an AT&T rebranding of LG’s Optimus 3D phone. It was a dual-core Android handset with glasses-free 3D built right into the screen, similar to the Nintendo 3DS and HTC EVO 3D (if you happened to see that phone before it’s quick death). Well, LG must have had better luck with 3D than HTC, because a second version of the Optimus 3D is already available in Europe. But does it fix the problems with its predecessor?

Video overview

LOOK and Feel

The Feel of the Optimus 3D Max an Improvement Over Its Predecessor in Most Ways.Throw It Has a More Plasticky Feel to It, The 3D Max is Both Thinner and Lighter than the Optimus 3D and Sheds A Lot of Weight - and An Ugly Metal Accent - In ITS Camera Area.The New Version Has a Finely Textures Batter for Grip (Not Rubberized) and An Improved Grip To a Shaarp (But Not Too Sharp) Bezel Around the Screen of the Phot.

As much as it is an imprivers, LG May Have gone a bit too form with design, to the Point of Hampering Control a bit.While the Power Button on the Top Right of the Phone Is Easy to Press and Works Well, Finding The Volum 3d Camera Shutter Buttons in the Dark Can Be a Challenge.They Donette Stand Out Visually, Either.The Soft, Light-Up Android Navigation Buttons-Menu, Home, Back, Search-Are Completely Invisible Until You Press Them.Combined with The Fact that Back Button Seems to be in An Odd Place - Not on the Left, But Toward the Right - The Inabilities to See the Buttons Can Lead to Confusion.On the Upside of the 3D Max’s Design is the Rather Useless, But Fun Micro Usb Cover, Which Isier To User Anything Else on the Phone.

Glasses-Free 3D

Let’s get this Straight.Glasses-Free 3D May Day Become An Integral Feature of Phones and Devices of All Types, But Neither The Optimus 3D The Optimus 3d Max Will Reign in this New Era.Throwh Lg Has Put A Lot of Effort Into Presentation, 3D is Little More than ales Gimmick on the 3D Max, Just Like Before.Nothing Has Changed.

And when we say Nothing Has Changed, We Quite Literally Mean that.The 3D Max Pretty Much Has the Same Exact 3D Software as the Optimus 3D and the 3D Effect Itself Doesn ’to be imprived from the Last Generation.Lines, Much Like Those 3D Stickers and Book Covers You've Seen All Youl Life.Much Like Those, If You Don’t look Directly at the 3D Max From ABOUT 30CM to 40CM AWAY, YOU WON’T See the Effect Properly Either.IF YOU’VE USED A 3DS, THE YOU KNOW of this Challenge, But Phones Are Less Forgiving.Overall, We DID Not Use The 3D Effect Much BecAuse It Would Hurt Our Eyes Just a Few Minutes.It’s neat to look at, But Even in Games Like Nova Or Asphalt 6, It’s To'S Sometter to Just SHUT IT OFF.

3D Isn’T Utilized in the Actual Phone Menus At All, But The Camera Can Take 3D Images.UNFORTUNATELY, IT’s Hard to Say if the File Format of A 3D Image today as it is Tomorrow.As Such, We’ve Deceded to Stick with Good Old 2D .Png and .jpg Files for now.

Operating System

LG Optimus 3D Max Review

LG HAS IMPROVED in the Operating System Department as Well, But Still Remains Half a Year Behind The Late Version of Android.The Optimus 3D Max Runs Android 2.3, A Marked Improvement Over The LG Thrill (Optimus 3D), Which Was Stuck On android 2.2.But Google ReleASD android 4.0 in Dec.2011. LG SOMEHOW Found the Time to Integrate it into the upcomping LG Optimus 4x HD, So Who Not Here?

A Phone Before They Can Afford An Upgrade.Many New Applications are Alread Beginning to Require Android 4.0 BecAuse of Its Compatibility with Tablets.

On the Plus Side, We Do Like the Way LG ’Optimus 2.0 Lite Custom User Interface Allows Youpt You Apps Menu Into Folders.It Makes Accessing Them Much Easier.Despite This Functionly, However, Its Look a bit dated as Well, With Bright Bubbly Graphics.There is a way to drastically Change thes and icon sets of the 3D Max - We’ve Seen It - BUT WE cannot figure out to do it.Wherever This Functionly is Buried, It’s Not Anywhere Obvious.On the Opposite End of the Spectrum, Some Things Were a bit too Obvious.We’re Not Sure Who Lg Decided to Always Include a Music Player in the Dropdown Notification Tray, But's a Huge Waste OF Space, Especially Considering behindIF You Stream Music from Spotify, Or Other Similar Services, It Will Go Unused.

BUT It COULD Be Indicative of LG's Software.)

Pre-Innstalled Apps

LG HASN’T Overloaded the Phone with Pre-Inchstalled Apps.There Are Some 3D Games Like Nova, Lets Golf 2, Gulliver’s Travels, And Asphalt 6, But Aside from That, Things are Pretty Minimal.Other Installed Apps Include Polaris Office, LG SmartShare, LG Smartworld, Remotecall, and A Finance Stock App.


The Specs are Mostly Similar, Throw The Processor Is Faster and Lg Has Finally Include an Adequate Amount of Ram.The Optimus 3D Max Runs on a 1.2ghz Dual-Core Ti Omap 4430 Processor, 1gb of Ram, 8Gb of Internet Storage, A 4.3-Inch 480 X 800 Pixel LCD Screen with Glasses-Free 3D, Bluotes, Bluotis, Bluotis, B.A digital compass, and an accelerometer.

As Far as Ports GO, It SHEDS The Micro HDMI Port of Its Predecessor, Throw Cutting Back on Ports Fairly Common Therese Days.A Microsd Slot Is Located Under The Battle Cover and there is Also Anudio Jack.


The Camera on the LG Optimus 3D Max Seems Fairly Similar to the LG Thrill 4G.It’s Made Up of Two 5-MEGAPIXEL REAR CAMERASH SYNC UP to Create 3D Images.An Led Flash Is Still Pressent and the Front-Facing Camera Is Stager 0.3 -mepixel (VGA) Resolution.

The Shutter Speed Is Still Very Slow, But LG Does Let You Touch a Image to Refocus (Only in 2D Mode).YOU CAN ALSO NOW USE The 3D Button as a Shutter Button, Throwh Sincy IT ONE LEVEL of CLICK TO IT - MOST SHUTTER BUTTONA TO HOLD To FOCUS - the Experience of SLOWS.IT’s Funny How Don’t Think of Shutter Buttons as Ansthing Special, But Make An Inferior and Wow, It Can Get Annoying Fast.

YOU CAN ALSO Record 1080P 2D Video Or 720p 3D Video on the 3D Max.

Don’t Buy This Phone for Its Camera.The 3D Effect on Images Can Be Adjusted, But Offten Feels a Bit Forced and the Overall Quality of Photos Just Isn’t Great.We’d Put LG’s Camera on the Lower End of the Smartphone Scale, Down with Motorola.

Battle Life

WE HAVEN’T Experienced Particularly Great Battle Life on the 1.520MAH Optimus 3D Max, BUT It HAS HELD ABOT AS WELL As Its Predecessor.Still, That isn’T Saying Much.The Phone is Rated for Only 4 Hours of Talk Time.We seemed to get a few more hours than this at Times, but certain activities Drain the Battle Quite Quickly.Playing Af? Pre -intalled Games on the Phone Is One of Those Activities and Will Kill Yoor Battle Mighty Fast.USING The Device On Wi-Fi, Which We have Done Quite Frequently, Seems to Result in a Big Hit on Battle Life as Well.

There is a Power Saver Mode in the Settings Menu, But It Mostly Consists of Rather Obvious Things, Like Turning Off Wi-Fi, Turning Download Screen Brightness, and Turning Off Synts.


The LG Optimus 3D Max is A Strange Phone.It’s a step up from the optimus 3D (LG Thrill 4G) in Many Ways, But Misses The Mark in the Home of the Most Vital.Despite Being 3D, Its Screen Is Low Resolution by Today's Standards.SINCE It’s not AVAILABLEN in the Us, We Don’t have a Price or Carrier to Refer You, But The European Version Costs € 500, Which is ABOUT $ 638 Today.For a Premium Price Like this, You’d Expect a Few More Improvements.Perhaps the 3D Screen and Camera Cost Too Much?Either Way, IF You Really NEED 3D, The Original Optimus 3D Isost the Same Phone But for as Little as Half the Price.
