As first impressions go, seeing the LG Optimus Vu will make your jaw drop -- and not necessarily in the good way....
Pros: The LG Optimus Vu is NFC-enabled, it has a decent screen, and for its size it`s slim and lightweight.
Cons: The Vu is expensive, its aspect ratio is odd, it runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and you have to carry the stylus separately.
Verdict: Though the Optimus Vu fits into the novel "phablet" category, forking over $900 for any Gingerbread phone isn`t worth it, no matter what the screen size....
The LG Optimus Vu is a ludicrously large mobile that packs some impressive hardware into its thin, light frame. It seems like a powerful device, but I suspect the sheer size will put many people off....
Pros: Huge display ; Fast processor ; 8-megapixel camera ; Impressively slim and light
Cons: Will be way too big for many people ; Extremely wide ; Likely to be very expensive
The LG Optimus Vu 2 picks up from where the original Optimus Vu left off, quirky 4:3 screen and all. Eyebrows were raised when the first Vu was announced last year, but LG has obviously deemed it enough of a success to churn out a new iteration. Global release dates and availability for the Optimus Vu 2 are currently unknown, but the handset is already on sale in LG`s native Korea for 966,900 won (around £530/$860) and we`d expect it to hit...
Pros: quick web browser, smooth operation,
Cons: awkward size, older Android,
Verdict: While we applaud LG for breaking the mould with the screen on the Optimus Vu 2 we can`t help but think the handset is just a bit too impractical. The oddly shaped screen will put a lot of people off and it doesn`t offer anything particularly outstand...
Though I heard about the Vu back in February as the \"phablet\" that was LG\'s presumed answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note, I never saw it until it was sent to our offices for this review. At first sight, I asked myself the same question everyone else asked when I showed the device to them: \"Is that really a phone?\" It may be difficult to believe due its large, squarish frame, but yes, the Vu does make calls. Just expect a lot of sneers from oth...
Verdict: Though the Optimus Vu fits into the novel "phablet" category, forking over $900 for any Gingerbread phone isn't worth it, no matter what the screen size....
Overall User Rating (3.8 Out of 5 based on 11 ratings)
Pros: Screen size, design, and NFC
Cons: Battery life Needs to be frequently rebooted
Overall: I had a very bad experience with this phone. Its PCB has failed twice in one year which tells that this phone is not reliable compared to other well known brands. I am really disappointed.
Overall: It does get any better.... Awesome product by LG.
