LG Thrill 4G Rated 4 out of 5 by Wireless and Mobile News' Review of Reviews
Reviewers of the LG Thrill 4G were thrilled by a few features of the smartphone. Reviewers rated the call quality, good to great and liked that you can connect the smartphone to an HDMI TV. Reviewers also liked the speaker phone quality and good battery life.
Although the LG Thrill 4G has better 3D options than the HTC EVO 3D, it comes with a 3D content widgets, takes/shows better 3D videos and comes with preloaded 3D games, the reviewers don't think 3D capability is any thing more than a novelty.
Prescription eyeglass wearers should note that depending on your eye correction, you may not be able to see the 3D effects. Everyone especially parents should note that watching 3D for prolonged periods of time can cause eye strain.
Features or the LG Thrill 4G include 4.3" glasses-free 3D touchscreen, 1GHz dual-core processor. 4 quad-band world roaming, a speakerphone, conference calling, voice dialing, and text and multimedia messaging. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, 8GB onboard memory and preinsalled 8GB microSD card.
So the question arises what you will be thrilled by the LG Thrill 4G? If you love novelty and like to be the life of the party until a novelty wears off, and if you really like connecting your smart phone to your HD TV the LG Thrill 4G may be your best choice right now.
However, the fall dual-core smartphone season is full bloom and AT&T will be releasing the 1.2GHz dual-core, Super AMOLED Samsung Galaxy S II this month. If you have eyestrain, many people have said that the super AMOLED screen is much easier to read.
Reviewers all thought that the price of the LG Thrill 4Gto be a bargain at $99 with a two-year contract from from AT&T.
Bonnie Cha at CNET rated the LG Thrill 4G 4 out 5. She liked that is preloaded with 3D content, has better depth than HTC EVO 3D but noted that it has limited viewing angles and 3D viewing causes eye-strain. In videos she says that it doesn't stand-out but likes it is bargain priced. She found the LG Thrill 4G to be heavy and the OS is out-of-date Android 3.2 Froyo, sluggish speeds and camera quality. Gesture support lets you turn ont he phone on or mute by turning it over. The touchscreen is smudgy. It plays an eye-strain disclaimer to take a break if your eyes become tired or if you are dizzy. Call quality, speaker phone quality and Bluetooth quality was very good. She thinks that the Motorola Atrix 4G, HTC Inspire 4G or forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S II are better choices.
Todd Hassleton at BGR found the LG Thrill 4G to be identical to the LG Optimus 3D and feels sturdy making it a nice package. Android ran smoothly and the added-on UI is not pure Google. 3D video viewing got comments that were mainly 'that's cool but who cares?" 3D videos came out well but sometimes 3D images blurred. Call quality was good, while speeds were not pure 4G. Battery life was on par with the Samsung Infuse 4G. He found it bulky and overall mediocre. He suggests power hunger users wait for the Samsung Galaxy S II when it comes out later this month
