The Interface

This interface looks exactly the same as the LG Optimus 2X. The slight difference is the new icon 3D Space on top of the task bar. A touch on it will launch the 3D applications, gallery  etc.

Under applications, there are preinstalled 3D apps including camera, games. Other standard applications include the standard Android apps – Gmail, Google Search, Market and other apps from LG  e.g. SmartWorld, SmartShare, 3D Game Converter, LG App Advisor, Remote Call. Other apps include Youtube, Polaris Office.

In LG Smart World, LG Electronics brings users Apps, Wallpapers and Ringtones in their own portal. Some are paid apps while some are free. There are also 3D videos to download for viewing on the Optimus 3D.

3D Game Converter is the latest program that is added on the V10D firmware. This allows existing games to be upconverted into 3D. We can now play Angry Birds in 3D.

The application manager keeps tracks of applications running and you can use this to stop or uninstall apps.

SmartShare allows you to share media contents on your phone to other devices in your living room.

The HDMI port on the phone allows you to output videos for playback on large screen. You can select the resolution or let it auto detect.

We did a check on the System information about the processor using Quadrant Standard. The information doesn’t seem to be reading it correctly but we know that it’s running at 1GHz. The actual processor should be  a Dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, PowerVR,SGX540 GPU, TI OMAP4430 chipset.

Here is our result of running Quadrant Standard v1.17 to benchmark the phone. It scored 2254.
