HTC EVO 3D vs LG Optimus 3D hands on video comparison

By Gary Johnson - Jun 18, 2011

Yesterday we told you that the LG Optimus 3D was ready to ship in Europe. But it’s not the only 3D handset which is available, and today we have HTC EVO 3D vs LG Optimus 3D hands on video comparison for you.

Cory Gunther of SlashGear has compared the two handsets and made a brief video of them which you can see below. If you have decided you want to have a 3D handset one of these could be for you. Both the handsets had good build quality which is what you now expect from both manufacturers. The HTC in particular felt nice in the hand, and the feel was preferred to the LG which was also slightly longer.

Both handsets have 4.2-inch glasses free displays, and provide a pretty good 3D image. The HTC has a qHD display at 540 x 960 resolutions, while the LG is 480 x 800. Of the two handsets it was found that the HTC had the edge. Both of the displays were found to have a weird glow to them when switching over to 3D, as well as being a bit grainy but were still impressive. There wasn’t much between the two devices though.

They both have dual five megapixel cameras but the HTC has twin LED flashes compared to the LGs one. The LG has no dedicated camera button but does have one for switching to 3D, while the HTC has a camera button and a switch to go between 3D and 2D.

Also the HTC is running Android 2.3 Gingerbread as well as Sense 3.0, while the LG is stuck on Froyo for the moment. The superior build quality of the HTC also helps the device to inch in front of its rival. Whether consumers want to have a 3D image on their cell phone remains to be seen, but they are probably just the first of many 3D handsets on the way over the coming year.

    I’m not sold on 3D for the home and even less so on mobile devices. But alas, although I still haven’t purchased a 3D television, I went ahead and pre-ordered this 3D, dual-cored Android beast. Worst case scenario, it gives me a headache and I’ll never use the 3D functionality again. But as the specs point out, 3D is but 1 of this phones many features that make it lust worthy.
