If you like to do more than just talk on a cell phone LG has made a gadget with 3D capability. The LG Thrill 4G is able to do some potent downloads and play in 3D too. Get a closer look at the LG Thrill 4G here in this short article.
If you have been to a 3D cinema and put on those funky glasses, you will probably like this smartphone by LG. The good part is that you do not need those funky glasses. This smartphone is based on the former LG Optimus 3D from the same company. It comes with nearly dual “everything” including cameras, processors and memory. It is easy to change from 2D to 3D just by pressing a button on the side of the LG Thrill 4G or on the screen. This allows the user to view photos in 3D, see youtube in 3D or make videos in 3D. The resolution for videos is halved when creating a video in 3D as compared to 2D. A 3D video is recorded in 720p and the 2D videos are created in 1080p.
The unique screen for this smartphone is not only different, but large. It is 4.3 inches in size, which makes it just under the size for a tablet. Since it is this large, and there is no manual keyboard with the LG Thrill 4G, typing will be no problem. The virtual keyboard will no doubt be big enough. The features for the display are all the normal ones; accelerometer, proximity sensor, multi touch input. The extra features are a gyroscope ( called a “gyro sensor” ) and the three dimensional user interface. There are four touch buttons under the screen for controlling the Android mobile operating system. LG Thrill 4G have Android 2.2 Froyo but it can be upgradable to Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
As touched upon earlier, the LG Thrill 4G has a dual core processor. It is running at a moderate one gigahertz. It is the ARM Cortex-A9 chip, developed by Samsung. The graphics chip is a PowerVR SGX540 GPU. The internal memory is rated for a smallish eight gigabytes, but another eight gigabytes is included in the form of a MicroSD card. The flash card slot can handle a card that is up to 32 gigabytes in size. RAM is rated for 512 megabytes, which is average.
If the DLNA feature does not make you want to buy this smartphone, not much will. All the multimedia from the LG Thrill 4G can be sent to a nearby monitor or television. No cable is needed. An HDMI port is provided if the user really has to hook up a cable, but being able to send a 3D video across a large room has big advantages. The WiMaX radio in the Thrill is thrilling also. It runs many times faster than Wi-Fi. The smartphone has Wi-Fi also, along with GPRS, EDGE, bluetooth, and even a stereo FM radio. It is jam packed with tons of wireless connectivity. The wired connections consist of a MicroUSB port and a 3.5 millimeter head phone jack.
LG gave the LG Thrill 4G a battery that is slightly larger than normal. Using all the 3D features and then making calls will counteract the large capacity of the battery. Do not look for the Thrill to “thrill” you with lots of hours of talk time. The price is not yet announced for this gadget, but it will be sold on AT&T in the next few months.
