The race to get the best value for money rival to the iPhone 5 is currently being won by LG which has already managed to get both of its dual core handsets under the physiological £400 barrier.
UK Online retailer Ebuyer has dropped the price of the LG Optimus 3D, the P920, to £399.99. The smartphone can be preordered now with a delivery date expected for the 4th of July; the other dual core smartphone, the Optimus 2X can be had for as little as £342.43 from Amazon.
The unique selling point of the handset is its ability to display and capture 3D content; a feature that the iPhone 5 is not likely to offer. It has a huge 4.3-inch WVGA 3D glassless capacitive touchscreen and can record 3D footage thanks to two five-megapixel rear cameras.
What's more you can view the content either directly on your phone's display or upload it to the dedicated 3D channel on Youtube or even watch it on a 3D-compatible television via a HDMI port or using a DLNA certified product.
The other key features include a dual core Cortex-A9 SoC from TI clocked at 1GHz, 512MB RAM and 8GB onboard storage. You do get a front facing VGA camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a microUSB port and microSD card slot.
Carphone Warehouse will be selling the Optimus 3D from £35 per month from the 7th of July but sells the handset SIM free for a whopping £499.95.
