    I went into sprint the other day to play with the E3D, and came away with mixed feelings. I loved pretty much everything except for the seemingly "best" feature of the phone, the 3D.

    I looked at 3D content for about 2-3 minutes before my eyes started to feel really strange. I'd heard about people having different reactions to stereoscopic 3D, so I figured I was one of the people who had eyes that just weren't right for it. I stopped after the 2-3 minutes, but about 15 minutes later I started getting a splitting migraine. I assume it was from the 3D since I rarely get headaches that bad, but I'm curious as to how other people feel about the 3D.

    Does it hurt your eyes? Do they feel fine no matter how long you look at it? Can you look for a little while but not too long?

    I have yet to look at it for more then a few minutes. It has not hurt my eyes but it does take my eyes about 15 seconds to adjust and focus.

    I personally haven't had any problems viewing the 3D, nor has anyone I have shown it to. I have seen on the forums that some have. I guess it depends on the individual.

    I have sat and watch youtube 3d for hours with no side effects. I think it is awesome. Non of my friends have mentioned headaches after watching mine for some time.

    The only way it affects me is when I do not use my eyeglasses.

    I haven't had much of an issue with it. Sometimes it bothers my eyes a little when they adjust. Liken it to the old magic eye books. I do try not to look too long though or take mini breaks. But it's about the same as watching a 3d movie in the theater.

    Before the 3vo came out, I checked out the Nintendo 3DS and my eyes got a good raping. Had the biggest headache and my eyeballs felt like they were going to pop out. Wasn't sure after that if I was gonna get the 3vo anymore, but after that horrid experience, neither the 3vo nor the 3DS hurt my eyes anymore. I think the general consensus here is:

    1. Have good eyesight.
    2. Find the "sweet spot" where the effect isn't forced
    3. Your eyes need time to adjust if it doesn't immediately.

    Another tip is don't try to focus on things that aren't in focus. If you're trying too hard to focus on things in the background or aren't the true focus, you're going to get headaches because you can't change what's being focused on.

    3d always gives me a headache. I don't even see 3d movies in theaters anymore.

    The videos are actually REALLY good, the pictures leave a lot to be desired though. Doesn't hurt my eyes no matter how long I look. But the viewing angles just aren't good if you're showing your friends.

    It hurt for the first time when I didn't know how to look at the content correctly, and it has been the same for everyone I showed it to. The Mario 3d on YouTube made me nauseous though.

    If you record a video in 3d, do you have to watch it on your computer with 3d glasses?

    No. But I wouldn't get this phone for its 3D ability. Get it for everything else.

    Once my eyes have gotten used to what they need to get adusted... I can look at a pic and my eyes get it right away. No strain. The hardest one i have is of a orange double lily that I took at night from up close and with the flash.
    It takes a lot of effort for me but it is by far the most astonishing 3d pic on my phone. It literally floats above the screen, almost like a hologram.
    Movies that I've shot don't really strain my eyes, but i've found it difficult to sustain the effect.
    Spiderman 3d and the green hornet I'm fairly certain i could play or watch for hours without a problem.

    I only have issues if I take pictures or video in semi-low lighting. But for good quality videos or pictures I've taken in bright places, I don't have any issues.

    No problems watching 3D here. Always try to find the right angle and u wont get ur eyes hurt. Also, it depends on the quality of the 3D video u r whatching. youtube has lots of 3D video but if u notice, some have better 3D effects than others n usualy those wont give u headaches

    Youtube and the green Hornet don't bother me. Usually its the camera app that takes some time to get used to.

    Not sure if you guys know this, but you can adjust the alignment of the 3D pictures. It makes it a MILLION times easier on the eyes... I'm gonna make a thread about this in a couple of minutes with directions on how to do it.

    I don't get the headache, but my eyes feel like they just finished running a double marathon. They feel strained and tired.
    Who needs the 3D? Yuk, get rid of it.
