Hands on with the LG Thrill at LG’s Jane’s Addiction concert event in NYC

Last night, LG hosted a concert event with Jane’s Addiction in New York City to promote their newest 3D phone, the LG Thrill. The Thrill will be available on AT&T and is scheduled for a a launch in a the next few weeks. We got to spend some good time with the phone and I’m sure that it will be a hit once released. Take a look at some of the pictures from the event below.

The LG Thrill is launching on AT&T, and is expected to sell for $99 on a 2-year contract

I guess you can say that the Thrill is LG’s first 3D phone. It’s basically the LG Optimus 3D that is currently available in Europe, but re-branded, of course, and set for a U.S. release. The LG Thrill is the first phone to feature a 1GHz dual-core, dual-channel and dual-memory processing architecture. It comes with 8GB of internal storage, enough to save your apps, videos, music, and images. Unfortunately, this bad boy is still running Froyo (Android 2.2), so it still has to do some catching up in regards to the OS.

The 3D quality on the LG Thrill is superb

The 3D experience on the phone was absolutely amazing. You won’t have to worry about wearing funny looking 3D glasses to enjoy all the 3D that this phone has to offer because it’s all glasses-free. Upon launching the 3D Space app, you are presented with different apps that take full advantage of the Thrill’s 3D capabilities, such as the 3D camera, 3D Gallery, 3D Games and Apps, 3D Guide. I was actually surprised by the quality of the 3D, and I would say that it’s better than that of the HTC EVO 3D.

Lots of 3D fun to keep you happy

The phone itself felt like it was made out of good quality material and didn’t feel light and cheap. I would say that it’s right smack in the middle, not too heavy, not too light.
