I have had the LG Optimus 3D Max (P-725) for almost 18 months now. It was only sold in Europe and Asia. I ordered it though a parallel shipper based in Hong Kong but who operate a New Zealand version of their service. I may be the only person in New Zealand who owns one. I have never seen another one here.
The phone is compatible with Vodafone in the UK and with 2Degrees and Vodafone in New Zealand. The frequency specs are on the link below.
Of course, it has quad-band GSM for use as phone. So it would work with any telco operating GSM frequencies for voice and GPRS data. But for HSPA and HSPA+ data it only supports 900Mhz , 1900Mhz and 2100MHz. If your telco uses any of these three for data and WCDMA voice services....You're fine. Most of Europe and Asia (outside China) may be OK.
But North America......not OK. This is because for many years the US military reserved the 900MHz frequency for their radio traffic alone.....so civil traffic is generally on 850MHz which not been used much out side North America.
So this phone would be a poor choice in Canada or the US if you wanted 3G data access. It would also be completely useless for those providers who went from CDMA to WCDMA (which is actually the new version of GSM - just to make thing confusing)....like Bell Canada.
My main phone is now a Samsung Galaxy S4, but I still carry the LG 3D Max everywhere with me. It also has a SIM in it (on Vodafone) for voice, but if I want to upload photos I do it from the phone via wifi either at home or tether to my SGS4.
The resolution of the 3D photos in this device is now somewhat low. I've grown used to higher res images with better cameras.....but the 25mm interaxial distance means the LG 3D Max is my go-to device for portraits as I can take a good 3D photo only 400mm away from the subject. http://www.phonearena.com/phones/LG-Opt ...
