This week's hottest reviews on TechRadar

LG Optimus 3D

The Optimus 3D is the first smartphone to launch with a "glasses-free" 3D display and we've reviewed it this week on TechRadar.

The phone enables you to take still photos and record videos in full 3D, then play them back in 3D on the phone's 4.3-inch display.

Also this week. we've brought you our initial verdict on Google's social networking offering, Google+, as well as reviewed the Nokia E6 and the webOS-toting HP TouchPad tablet.

LG Optimus 3D review

While 3D has yet to win the hearts and minds of the general public, the hot 3D products are still hitting the high street thick and fast. The latest wave of 3D products is coming in the form of glasses-free 3D mobile devices. LG's Optimus 3D is one of these very gadgets, and comes packing dual-core innards and the ability to not only show 3D pictures and videos but to capture them too, using a dual-sensor 3D camera. It's a very cool handset for anyone who's particularly taken by 3D, but poor battery life and a slightly out of date version of Android combine with a high asking price to place this phone just outside of our favourites list.

Hands on: Google+ review

Now that MySpace is officially dead as a social networking entity, Facebook has been left to rule the internet all on its own. However, as with all things internet-related, Google has plans of its own and the latest toy to come out of its box of tricks is Google+. It's a new social networking service designed to offer greater flexibility in the way you share information with friends, and to make it easier to chat with them. It's currently an invite-only service, and early reactions have been a mixed bag. Check out our hands-on review to see if we think you should sign up.

Nokia E6 review

While Apple, Samsung, HTC and LG dominate the headlines in the mobile phone world, did you know that Nokia is still out there making phones? It is, you know. Its latest E-Series business phone is the E6, which packs a full QWERTY keyboard, a touchscreen and runs the latest version of Symbian. The Nokia E6 is a well-built, very capable business phone with plenty of apps and features to suit business users. However, can we recommend you buy one of these over say, one of the latest BlackBerry smartphones? The truth is that we just can't, as the Nokia is let down by a small screen and a lack of all-round polish.

Creative Aurvana In-Ear3 review

If you're the sort who doesn't mind dropping £130 on a pair of earphones, the Aurvana In-Ear3 might just be for you. Sounding an order of magnitude better than the bundled earphones you get with most MP3 players and iPods, the stand-out feature on offer here is the excellent noise-isolation performance which eliminates 98 per cent of outside noise.

HP TouchPad review

The TouchPad has been one of the most anticipated tablets of the year. It hits the shelves next week in the UK, so how does it measure up to the magnificent offerings from Apple, Samsung and Asus?
