The LG Thrill has one more high performance number up its sleeve, and that number is "4", followed by a "G". The LG Thrill's 4G capabilities are a bit of an over statement, it's more like very fast 3G. You'll be constantly blanketed in HSDPA+ most of the time, and you'll get somewhere around 800 KB download speeds and 1.6 MB upload speeds. Not bad at all really. You get a full range of GSM frequencies (850, 900, 1800, 1900) and UMTS 800 and 1900, while Bluetooth is blessedly updated to version 3.0, and of course microUSB 2.0 is along for the ride as well.
Now for the beast that runs this machine, and that beast is a Texas Instruments OMAP4, 1000 MHz dual-core processor. The RAM is a dual-split 512 MB, while the graphical grunt is provided by a PowerVR SGX540 GPU. Internal memory comes in at 8 GB and you can add a 32 GB microSD card without any problems.
Now for the 3D camera. Well, as far as creating 3D images -- it does the job. You can shoot 3D images in either the MPO format or JPS format, JPS being the default format. After you've taken the picture you're free to convert it to MPO. 3D pictures are pretty hard to shoot, you need to be very steady and very close to the subject, so taking pictures of funnily shaped clouds isn't a really good idea --unless you can fly. Also you can't take pictures while the flash is on. Pictures turn out pretty good if you can fulfill all the above requirements, if you can't then they're just a huge eyesore.
3D video, on the other hand, is only available in 720p at 30 FPS (frames per second), and you again need to very steady if you want capture any decently viewable video. Once captured, you can simply HDMI-out all your 3D content to a 3D TV and enjoy all your content on a large screen.
Now for the normal 2D camera, and it's pretty bad. Almost shockingly so. Pictures with big backgrounds (like a parking lot or a park) start to bleed color and appear to wash or fade out. Otherwise close up pictures in good lighting appear pretty crisp and in very sharp detail. Night time shooting, however, or even shooting in low light conditions, even with the flash on, is horrific. You can see a fuzzy picture of what you've snapped, and a huge ominous shadow surrounding it. The further you back away from the object you wish to snap a picture of, the further the quality deteriorates. Oh also the phone has no ISO balance or panorama mode, other than those two it has every mode, feature and shooting style you can name, including auto focus which works with the 3D camera.
The 2D video camera does not fare any better. Although you can shoot in 1080p at 25 FPS, it looks like barely acceptable 720p, and you have to be deathly still to capture anything of viewable quality, which defeats the purpose of a video camera to some extent. It's as if LG is punishing the customer for having the gall to dare and use the 2D camera, while ignoring the oh-so-groundbreaking 3D camera they worked so hard on.
Now for some good news, the phone has a pretty good music player. Apart from the usual tidbits you get from an Android music player (shuffle, select, preset equalizers, etc.), you also get a unique double stacked iTunes cover-flow like look, alphabetically organized. It's pretty cool. You'll also be pleased to hear that this phone plays virtually every common musical file format there is, you get the full range as follows -- MP3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, WAV and MIDI.
But where the phone really shines is when watching movies, you can watch a DIVX/XVID video at a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels with absolutely no lag. Granted the WVGA screen won't amaze your eyes but it's still a pretty good experience. 3D movies on the other hand are a bit of a no-go still, you can enjoy 3D content via the YouTube player, but you'll have a hard time getting 3D movies from DVD discs onto the phone. As for formats, you get a pretty sweet deal with MPEG4, H.263, H.264, DivX, WMV, AVI and 3GP all supported, the only format missing is MKV.
As for third-party apps, well since this is on AT&T, it comes chock full of them. Kindle, YPmobile, Polaris Office, Qik Lite, Live TV, my AT&T, AT&T Code Scanner, AT&T FamilyMap, AT&T Navigator and the list goes and on and on and on. But you still get the basic essentials, fear not. You get an excellent document viewer/editor, Google Maps, YouTube (2D), SNS integration, a digital compass, Google Search, Gmail, Google Talk, JAVA, A-GPS and Geo-Tagging.
