LG debuts new custom interface, Optimus UI 3.0

LG today introduced their new custom interface which will run atop Android 4.0 devices.  Called Optimus UI 3.0, it’s an enhancement that makes it more convenient for consumers to do some of the more popular daily tasks.  For instance, there is an improved Quick Memo feature that provides a simple way to jot down notes no matter where they happen to be in the handset.  Once the notes or memos are created, users are but one tap away from sharing across email, text, social networks, etc.

Additional details include Voice Shutter (snap pictures with voice commands), icon customization, and a pattern lock option.  The Optimus UI 3.0 will be part of the Optimus LTE II which launches in Korea later this week and will then find itself on the Optimus 4X HD and other models.

Although Optimus UI 3.0 is not necessarily earth shattering stuff, it’s a smattering of little user experience features that consumers should come to enjoy.  The point here is to give users something to look forward to in their next handset.  “Can I take notes while in a call?”  “Will this one let me capture photos using my voice?”  Further, we like that it doesn’t appear to be so thick and pervasive that it detracts from the standard Android experience.
