Tuesday Poll: Does 3D Technology in Smartphones Interest You?

It has basically been confirmed that LG will release some sort of 3D smartphone product at MWC in February, but we’re still trying to figure out if we care.  Obviously 3D technology in cameras and displays is going to be the next fad, so are you interested?  NVIDIA is almost ready to launch their Tegra 2 that was built specifically for 3D displays which means phones with the technology are right around the corner.  Are you ready for 3D fun in your smartphone?  Do you care if your phone has 3D features?  Still waiting to see how it’ll play out?  Let us know!

    I bet u guys still want a projector phone too

  • I haven’t seen a 3d movie yet. I’m slightly interested in 3d tv (play with it every time I go to Costco). And I have no care for a 3d phone.

  • Would be cool to shoot 3d movies now because in 10 years 3d screens will be the norm.

  • chris

    I don’t think anyone here knows what they mean by “3d technology” in smartphones. The way a 3d tv works is by wearing special glasses while watching the tv. just like in theatres. without the glasses everything is blurry. well I’m usually always carrying my phone but i cant wear the glasses 24/7. but without them everything would b blurry. so thats obviously not wut they mean. the 3d technology is just an improvement to the display of the icons, background, and everything else on the screen. Idk if this is exactly wut it will b like but an exmple is the 3d gallery. the stuff doesnt pop out at u. it just has that 3d effect.

  • 3D is just another way for the electronics manufacturers and big corporations get us to spend more money to keep up with unnecessary technologies. HD and 4G is fine for me. {{-_-}}

    It would be cool if they made 3D glasses that showed everything in 3D, not just the movies or phones. Could you imagine seeing your whole life in 3D? That would be epic!

    New technologies don’t become popular until apple adopts it, at least with most people. Then android users want it too so we can show our phones are better. I never cared about front facing cameras and I feel the same way about 3D

  • I heart headaches! Lets go 3D!

    You people are horrible. Don’t you realize 3D is the future? Glasses free 3D tech in the palm of you hand. Sounds like a prerequisite to holographic tech if you ask me.

  • Beneathonyxskies

    I support 3D in all its various forms. As long as it doesn’t kill the battery or cost much more I say its great!

  • Anonymous

    Here is the summary of this thread

    If it has glasses, we don’t want it
    If it is a hologram, we want it immediately
    If it is 80s style holographic card then we want to know more

    According to this thread, I do like how most people think that your going to need glasses to see it.. are you kidding me? These companies aren’t THAT stupid.. it will definitely be something of interest to us in particular, I can guarentee that, but until they show us what they have in the works.. I want 4g dual core gingerbread devices 🙂

    3D smarthphone? Not really. 3D tablet? Now you’re talking!

  • RW-1

    There is absolutely no valid reason for having 3D on a tablet or smaller device, period. Marketing ploy, that’s it, the way of force feedback joysticks, and facetime (once you figure out that video calls drain your phone quickly, just how many will you make, let alone how many you take if you’re not “ready” to be seen, etc.?)

    F-A-D. One that needs to quickly die.

  • wtf is even the point of having a 3D phone? its stupid. people need to really grow up. we dont need this crap.

  • Beka27

    I can’t even glance at a 3D television on display at the store… INSTANT HEADACHE. I wear glasses and many of the pairs of 3D glasses won’t fit over them. So at this point, I’m very anti-3D. On a phone, that’s just a really stupid idea, IMO.

  • Anonymous

    I think they trying drain more money out the consumer. I don’t like 3D in movies and I sure don’t like 3D on my phone.

    NO ONE SHOULD BE INTERESTED IN 3D IN A SMART PHONE HELL OUR PHONES BATTERIES DIE QUCIK ENOUGH I COULDNT EVEN PICTURE BATTERY LIFE WITH A 3D SMART PHONE WE WOULG GET LIKE 2 HOURS OUT OF IT AND THE BACK OF THE PHONE WOULD BE SO HOT IT WOULD MELT OUR FINGERS OFF

    stupid….because its not actually projecting a hollogram, like on the gallapagos…….its just the same as those cards i like to scratch that if you tilt it a different angle it shows you a different picture…i want stuff popping out not this….but……a 3d projectagram incredible hd…..LOLOL….sounds cool to me.

  • All this 3D stuff to me is totally unessacarry and pretty stupid. I mean srsly a 3D phone hell even 3D tvs are kinda stupid.

    And all the Samsung owners said…… Can we please just get 2D working on something beyond 2.1?

    Other than gaming purposes it sounds like a useless technology for smartphones. This is just my own opinion on it. I think even for TV’s its overkill. They should save it for the movies . Now bring on the damn tablet already thats what I support:)

  • Meh, it’s great in theaters and on a gaming device like the 3DS, but I don’t think I’d care for it on my phone. I’d rather just have a pretty 2D screen that’s easy to look at.

    Floating text in my RSS feed? No thanks 🙂

  • I prefer battery longevity. 😉

  • I’m a real phone freak (all phones) Motorola,Apple, LG,Samsung are all in my line up!3D come on this is to far just improve small user functions update os timely and let the masses enjoy!

  • If it’s a 3D display, such as what they did with Google Maps 5, then I’m all for it. But if it’s like the TVs where you have to wear a $300 pair of glasses to see it, then it’s not worth it.

  • 3D is complete garbage. It doesn’t even look good or realistic currently. Mix in that the lack of industry standards, meaning that each manufacture has its own technology and its own specific 3D glasses, its completely not user friendly. I guess my hate for 3D spawns mostly from the TV side specifically, but that is whats pushing everything, and now this with smart phones. Please, lets all ignore 3D so it will die and go away.

    3D is cool but in theaters near you, I’d rather have Quad core and 4G lightening speed technology with plenty of ram and a killer screen that doesn’t deem in the sunlight.

  • Jahart93

    I meant to say that all the new tech/stuff seems to be 3D. It was a big deal well was trying to make it a big deal @ CES when dual core processors where the king. I wonder if they would get the hint there seeing how a regular Samsung T.V. one the best T.V. category @ CES.

  • Nathan

    No. Actually, thats a HELL NO!

    I don’t much like 3D in movies, TVs, and video games, so seeing it on a mobile device is even lower on the list then that.

  • Jahart93

    To me it just seems that these companies are forcing us to go with 3D tech. When these items are the main interest today. yes there an enjoyable experience for the family at movies or theme parks but not on a phone that would be for everyday use. I could see a tv using 3D for like a Wii, Xbox 360, or PS3 but not this. Bad idea.

  • You guys are misunderstanding what it actually means by 3D.

  • If you need glasses to view the 3D, it’s a waste of time.

    There are 3D phones out. 3D Android phones are out over in Japan. I sent a link to Droid life and Android life on it and they didn’t mention it.

  • shr1k3r

    resolution is terrible in HD let alone 3D. I almost threw up when I saw NBA Live in 3D… looked like ps2 graphics where you have little 2D pictures floating around in space.

  • tehshift

    3D is a bunch of hype and nonsense. I would hope to see a 2D projector on my phone before a 3D screen.

  • Anonymous

    Either I am confusing the 3D that is planned for phones and tablets, or everyone else is. The 3D, as I understand it, is not comparable to televisions or movies. A basic example use would be to have desktop icons for apps appearing to float above a distant background – and when the screen is looked at from different angles, that background moves as if you were able to see deeper into it because you are at an angle – NO 3D GLASSES REQUIRED. I saw a demo of it that looked cool. Though I don’t really care to pay more for it.

    3D has got to be the dumbest gimmick that has been put out for the public. Who really gives a flying poop if you can have something “look as if” it’s doing something…..Americans are F’n SHEEP!

    • Endisky

      Two other very large markets for 3d are Korea and the UK. Generalized, are they sheep as well? Since those 3 markets are rather large, does that make Humans sheep? Scotty89 therefore is a sheep.

    Personally this 3d craze pisses me off because … I CAN’T SEE ANY OF IT.

    I’ve had 5 eye surgeries and since my left eye is 20/60 and my right 20/25 I can’t see any of the 3d movies, 3d TV’s or anything else.. .its just gives me headaches and makes the picture blurry!.

      I can only assume that’s what they’re after. Otherwise i wouldn’t think you’d need a special processor to display it.

    I spent a few years working with IMAX 3D technology. In my opinion, that’s as “small” as it should be. I have no desire for a 3D TV and I definitely won’t buy a 3D phone. The number and letter that interest me are 4 & G.

    • Anonymous

      100% agree. 3D should only be experienced in a large capacity like on IMAX, not on 4inches of AMOLED.

      • Flyinion

        Maybe they’ll figure out 3D holographics hehe, until then…………if it needs glasses NO.

        • tjhrulz

          if it was a holograph then I would get one for sure
          holograph is okay for 4in screen
          current 3D on a 4in sceen is a no

        • You won’t need glasses, it’s pretty much the same thing as the Nintendo 3DS.

    I’ll wait to see how it works. 3D isn’t a big deal for me, but if they have a better way and better use for it I’d take a look at it. As it stands, its not special.

    Meh. I think there’s only a couple places good for 3D, on an Imax screen or maybe pc gaming when you are close to the monitor. I don’t want to sit one foot from my TV or 2 inches from my phone to get the full effect.

    I hate 3D. Didn’t want it in theatres. Don’t want it at home. Really don’t want it on my phone.
