The LG Optimus 3D — with its AT&T Thrill 4G variant — and the HTC EVO 3D — both European and Sprint — are two of the current 3D-enabled smartphones. Besides both sporting an auto-stereoscopic display that allows for glasses-free 3D content playback, they both sport dual stereoscopic cameras at the back for capturing their own 3D content.
Aside from pictures you take, videos you shoot and the games that come bundled or offered with your smartphone, there really is no huge choice for 3D content available. This will probably change as games and applications will support three-dimensional displays in the future, as technology evolves and slowly becomes a standard rather than a novelty.
The LG Optimus 3D features a “YouTube 3D” bit which sounds cool when you hear it first but when you dig into things you’ll find out that it’s basically a link to the official YouTube 3D page. YouTube has an official 3D channel where it favorites three-dimensional videos from all over, offering them in one place. There are several playlists you can choose from, aside from the videos marked as favorite, and these might get you through a couple of boring days. When these run out, you can always purchase some new 3D games and create your own content.
