LG has bundled in Facebook and Twitter to take care of your social media needs; and they work just well. The widgets let you quickly share content, along with letting you view what your friends are up to.
There’s standard fare out here – the usual Google Apps, along with Smart Share, SmartWorld, Remote Call and Polaris Office. A video editor app has been included as well. The Remote Call app lets you diagnose your phone remotely. A Backup app has been included as well that lets you, well no guesses out here, back up all your data onto your memory card or inbuilt memory. Downloaded apps, bookmarks, contacts, the homescreen settings and system settings – all can be backed up. The list of games that we mentioned earlier complete the list of misc. apps that come with the phone.
The Optimus 3D Max comes with a 5 megapixel sensor for your 2D shots and it is limited to 3 megapixel for 3D shots. The 3D shots come with brilliant depth of field and if the subject is still you will be able to get a good amount of detail to show off the 3D effect. 3D however, doesn’t have touch to focus. The 2D to 3D conversion button is present on screen and switching between the two is pretty quick. Outdoor 2D shots have a good amount of detail, but they’re best limited to casual photography. Indoor shots capture little detail and the LED flash helps out during those times. 3D video recording is limited to 720p and is pretty interesting, but you can’t get too close to the subject. 2D video recording is possible at 1080p, but we observed some amount of colour banding. Though 2D shooting is ho-hum, the camera in 3D mode will keep you entertained for quite a while.
Not too good with macro shots
The Optimus 3D Max comes with a 1520 mAh battery and it will last you close to three quarters of a day on normal usage. That may not be impressive, but we haven’t seen many Androids that have breached that barrier. In our video test, we managed to get 5 hours of battery life which, taking into account the large screen and the full brightness, isn’t bad.
Worth a buy?
The LG Optimus 3D Max is priced at Rs. 30,500. It’s not exactly fair to compare it with the likes of the HTC One S (which we're in the process of reviewing), the Galaxy Note, the Xperia S and the others as this phone has its own little niche. However, it’s important to note that this is version two of the phone, there is still not enough 3D content and LG hasn’t done much to improve it, either. Even with the available stuff, 3D is still not a worthy reason for you to buy this phone.
