Oh Optimus Vu, what an odd little device you are. Developed as a less than subtle knee-jerk reaction to Samsung’s Galaxy Note, the Vu went on sale in Korea earlier this year, and it’ll soon be making its way to Japan on NTT Docomo, too. Stateside, it's known as the Verizon LG Intuition. In any case, this is LG’s 5-inch, stylus-using, 4:3 aspect ratio squarish slab. It ran Android 2.3 at launch, but it’s recently receiv...
Pros: ICS plus Optimus UI 3.0 makes for a great user experience. Pen input works reasonably well, despite relying on a plain old capacitive stylus. Good build quality and solid hardware, despite its weird dimensions. Ample internal storage.
Cons: With a 4:3 aspect ratio screen, the Vu is awkward and clunky by design, and the lack of an on-device slot for the stylus means you’re unlikely to take it out and about with you. One-handed use is basically impossible. Camera performance is inconsist
Verdict: For what should feel like a thoroughly half-assed device, the Optimus Vu isn’t a terrible piece of consumer electronics. But too many usability issues remain for us to recommend it over the competition in the 5-inch smartphone space. The Optimu...
Here`s one phone that will leave a lasting impression on you from the very moment your first spot it - the LG Optimus Vu. This handset is eye-poppingly gigantic. It`s so big the adjectives won`t prepare you for its actual size and you`d be wondering......
Pros: Big bright screen, perfect for reading ; Spacious keyboard, great for typing
Cons: Too wide for one-handed use ; Not comfortable to hold in your pocket ; Most video doesnu2019t make use of 4:3 screen
Verdict: The LG Optimus Vu is a brave and interesting experiment with the size of a smartphone. Itu2019s phablet to its core - a smartphone moniker might still somehow fit the Galaxy Note, but youu2019d find it hard to twist your tongue and call this a phone....
With an extremely wide screen aspect ratio of 4:3, the LG Optimus Vu is definitely a contender for the oddest phone of 2012....
Verdict: The LG Optimus Vu has the makings of an excellent phone, but its dreadful design will leave your hand aching....
The LG Optimus Vu is an interesting and commendable concept, taking the large screened smartphone in a slightly different direction by having a shorter, wider screen. However, even more than the Samsung Galaxy Note, it really is a bit too big.The LG Optimus Vu takes on the Galaxy Note by sporting an enormous screen and coming with a capacitive stylus. LG insists it`s way is better all round, though. We got hands on to find out. One thing`s ...
LG hasn’t had the best of luck when it comes to smartphones. The company has delivered decent, value for money Android phones in the past, with the Optimus One P500 being one of the more popular ones, but only with moderate success. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and seeing the success Samsung has achieved with the Galaxy Note, LG has decided to take that route in hopes of wooing some undecided customers. The Optimus Vu is by ...
