LG Optimus 3D Max: First Impressions
Another Optimus 3D? And here we thought 3D wasn’t really catching on, as far as smartphones were concerned.
The likes of the LG Optimus 3D and the HTC Evo 3D were launched last year amidst much fanfare, but the excitement did die down rather quickly. Maybe you could blame the premium being charged for the 3D feature, or headache-inducing nature of autostereoscopic displays at the time.
However, LG refuses to give up, and has launched the Optimus 3D Max in India. We have it in the test centre, and here are some initial impressions about the product.
- The Optimus 3D Max is slightly slimmer this time around, when compared to its elder cousin and the HTC Evo 3D.
- It is well put together, but doesn’t take away the fact that the phone is essentially plastic. For a phone that sports a box price of Rs. 33,400, this is quite unacceptable.
- A 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and the PowerVR SGX540 GPU power it. The 5MP 3D camera and 8GB of internal storage indicate this is clearly a phone that would have been priced between Rs. 27,000 and Rs. 30,000, had it not been for the premium on the 3D bit, and dual cameras. But then again, if someone isn’t bothered about the third dimension, they might as well check out the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S III, with their fast nose-diving prices.
- This is a big screen phone, and the 4.3-inch real estate ensures that you have enough space on the display to make the on-screen keypad extremely comfortable, and surprisingly conducive for quick typing sessions.
- Speaking of the display, the 3D LCD panel has a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. Does quite well with colour reproduction, but the crispness isn’t as good as the likes of the HTC One X or the Samsung Galaxy S III.
- The most critical bit of the phone – 3D. Well, we still believe it is just a novelty feature, and this phone isn’t going to make us change our mind anytime soon. 3D depth is okay at some times, but you can clearly see a “double-image” reproduction at other times. Glasses-free 3D though it is, but doesn’t take away the fact that it will still strain your eyes a bit.
- The 2D -> 3D up-conversion is a very neat feature, and it will do this for all videos you may have on the device. However, the conversion is interlinked with the previous observation about the depth and reproduction quality.
Do stay tuned for a detailed review of the Optimus 3D Max. In the meantime, you can check out some pictures of the device.
