LG Optimus UI 3.0 – what’s so great about it?

LG Electronics has just announced a spanking new user interface for their Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich powered devices, calling it the Optimus UI 3.0. I suppose this is the equivalent of Samsung’s TouchWiz as well as HTC’s Sense, but today, we will focus to see what makes LG’s Optimus UI 3.0 tick. With this being the most recent iteration, it will offer a bunch of what LG calls “enhanced key features”, including Quick Memo as well as special unlock functions. Just what does Quick Memo do? It basically lets you jot down notes on the screen with your finger, and sharing updates via social networks, text messages and e-mails are made easier than ever before.

You can also unlock the phone by dragging anywhere on the screen – something which is a double-edged sword, I feel, as you might end up unlocking your smartphone by accident more often than you would like. The new Pattern Lock also enables users to preset the most frequently used function which will begin the moment the handset is unlocked, while Voice Shutter lets you speak to the handset so that it relies on voice commands to shoot photos, among others. The Optimus UI 3.0 will hit the LG Optimus LTE II first, before following in the footsteps of the LG Optimus 4X HD the next month.

All in all, it does seem to make life easier compared to the stock Android user interface, but how much better remains to be judged by users. [Press Release]
