The LG Thrill 4G's capabilities may be a fun gimmick, but in the end that's primarily what they are. The 3D camera is quirky but eventually of limited use, and the 3D menus have even less of a shelf life. In the end, the 3D effects are good for a little showing off, and maybe occasional utility in the camera, but not much beyond that.
But that shouldn't be held against the phone as a whole: in fact, the Thrill is one of the better smartphones I've seen for the price. It offers a big screen, plenty of memory, and a blazing fast dual-core processor at a suggested retail of just $100. That makes it one of the most advanced "mid range" devices available, and the little things like HDMI video-out just serve to cement that position.
It would be a mistake to judge it only on the 3D features it's marketed for; it would make an excellent smartphone for someone who wants power-user features on a budget, or just a multimedia powerhouse.
Completely apart from its 3D options, the LG Thrill 4G is a very attractive smartphone for the price, with great performance and lots of options.
