Sprint HTC EVO 3D vs LG Thrill on AT&T (Optimus 3D) : Upcoming Fight

We’ve regularly posted about two upcoming 3D Android smartphones, the HTC EVO 3D and the LG Thrill (the US version of the Optimus 3D). As both are getting closer to release in the U.S. we thought it was time to look at Sprint’s HTC EVO 3D vs. the LG Thrill on AT&T to see which one might come out best in the upcoming fight.

To get you up to speed on these smartphones you might want to take a look at just some of our previous articles so hit the links for more on particular aspects. For the HTC EVO 3D we’ve recently posted a look against the Sharp 3D Aquos, asked whether the EVO 3D is a credible alternative to the iPhone 5, told of rumors that it may also go to AT&T and T-Mobile (as well as Sprint), discussed how the Galaxy S2 may miss out on sales as its release will lag behind the EVO 3D, and given official news of its release on June 24. As far as the LG Thrill (Optimus 3D) goes we told of its reveal at MWC, its inclusion in our pick of the best Android smartphones, a hands-on look, and news that the LG Thrill is coming to AT&T.

Specs and features for the HTC EVO 3D 4G include of course 4G connectivity, a 4.3-inch 3D qHD display with no need for special glasses,1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 5-megapixel 3D cameras for 3D capture and playback of photos and videos. It will also run on the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS. Taking a look at specs for the LG Thrill 4G there’s that 4G connectivity, a 4.3-inch 3D display with no need for special glasses, 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM and 5-megapixel camera that can record HD and 3D video. One drawback though is that it will be running on the Android 2.2 Froyo operating system rather than the 2.3 Gingerbread OS. As you can see then both of these handsets have a lot going for them.

For an in-depth comparison an article over on GforGames tells more and gives the HTC EVO 3D the edge as far as the display is concerned. Top on specs is also given to the HTC EVO 3D as it has a 1.2GHz processor as opposed to a 1GHz processor, has more RAM and also runs on a later operating system. As far as camera and video recording capabilities go it’s pretty much a draw though. Overall, these are both impressive 3D handsets and ultimately personal preference of styling and also price will probably be the deciding factor.

What are your thoughts on these two 3D smartphones? Have you already decided to opt for one or the other and if so what swayed it for you? We’d be interested to hear from you so let us know with your comments.

      If you read the article again properly you’ll see that we did say that the EVO 3D will run on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. At no point did we say otherwise. Thanks for reading!

    I’m going for the Thrill because I’m stuck on AT&T, and it is just an awesome phone. It also seems very hackable with its unlocked bootloader. The Evo has this too, but like I said, I’m on AT&T. Can’t wait for it to come out!
