All the latest 3D gadgets are now coming up with a new technology. They are offering the users with a chance of viewing without wearing the 3D glasses. This was first started by the Nintendo 3DS. However, LG is now demonstrating the Optimus 3D, which is the first smartphone in 3D in the world. But a question has been raised by many that which one of these two devices offers better 3D technology.
Both the Optimus 3D from LG and the 3DS from Nintendo use the parallax technology for displaying their 3D magic. This is a thin additional layer present over the display which is covered by small slits. Due to this the light which is projected out of the screen of these gadgets gets split into two different light paths. These displays effectively show two images at the same time. With the new technology there is no need of wearing the 3D glasses to experience a stereoscopic image. However the drawback of this technology is that you need to keep your eyes fixed in the particular spot. If your eyes move from the spot then illusion gets vanished in no time.
But among the two devices the Nintendo 3DS is reckoned as much better than the Optimus 3D when it comes to 3D viewing. May be more than one person cannot enjoy the 3D experience sitting around the console but the 3DS can be tilted to a fair inch without the spell getting broken. The sweet spot of the LG Optimus 3D is quite tight and if you move the phone or your head little bit then that will spoil the 3D effect. Besides this there are other problems in the Optimus 3D. The inbuilt accelerometer of the phone is used by various mobile games due to which the smartphone itself tilted to influence the on screen activities. But if the Optimus 3D is tilted even a little bit then the 3D effect will be broken.
There is an accelerometer in the 3DS also and this technology is used by lots of games that are available nowadays. So these games may suffer from the similar problem. However in the Nintendo 3DS, generally the buttons or the touch screen panel is used for controlling the device. This means you do not need to move the console too much for playing most of the games.
However both these devices are strong contenders in the 3D world with their excellent 3D effect. Resolution of anything that comes on the screen is halved by the 3D content but still everything that is seen looks highly bright and sharp. The depth of this 3D effect is quite impressive as the foreground objects seem to be coming out of the screen and the objects in the background provides an excellent feeling. This is really a great fun and the effect is efficiently handled by both the devices.
Do not forget the 2D imaging also. The LG Optimus 3D’s Android menu is not in the 3D format. However it does not have any problem with the 3D display which always looks sharp and bright. There is a slider control in the Nintendo 3DS on the top panel. This is quite impressive and helps you in switching over to the 2D format whenever you require. In case of the Optimus 3D, there is a slider on the screen which offers the similar purpose.
Thus only in terms of 3D effect, the Nintendo 3DS has an edge over the LG Optimus But there are other great features that are present in the Optimus 3D smartphone. This is a powerful smartphone that is powered by Android. This phone possesses a strong web browser which supports Flash and 5 megapixels dual cameras which can help the users in capturing 3D snaps or 3D videos in 720p. The users can also download lots of free games from the Android Market. The customers can also upload the videos to the 3D channel of YouTube. The phone also has a dual core processor which helps to run intensive games and applications.
So you need to decide which one you want on the basis of your requirements. If you want an excellent and powerful smartphone and you are ready to spend money for that, then the Optimus 3D would be a great choice. However if you want to experience 3D gaming at an affordable price then you should go for the Nintendo 3DS. This device may have less features than the Optimus 3D but you obviously would not get some of your most favorite and enjoyable games on the LG Optimus 3D.
