LG Optimus Vu

evogadget.com
28 November 2014
  • Summary: Looking at the big picture, LG’s Optimus Vu’s is a smartphone that will confuse users. And it doesn’t seem fit for this world like the Galaxy Note is. And it has an expensive price. But it’s not a bad smartphone/tablet. It doesn’t fail at doing its job, it’s just that the Samsung Galaxy Note is a better pick.

LG Optimus Vu Review

  • Summary: Some say, the LG Optimus Vu was conceived to rival the Samsung Galaxy Note II. However, that is exactly what it is not. Well, you may say that both are big-screen phones, with the rather fancily named styluses, but both seem to offer different things. The Optimus Vu is even bigger than the Note II. The Note II has better S-Pen features and multi-tasking. In the end, it is more about what you want from a huge phone!

Colossal LG Optimus Vu turns heads

CNET
15 December 2012
  • Summary: 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.
  • 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.

LG reaches for the 'phablet' stars with its LG Intuition

CNET
14 December 2012
  • Summary: The LG Intuition from Verizon is a reasonably priced, Android 4.0 'phablet,' but its specs can't compete with Samsung's Galaxy Note family.
  • Pros: Verizon's LG Intuition has 4G LTE, NFC capabilities, and runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
  • Cons: The Intuition may be unwieldy for some, its screen's 4:3 aspect ratio is unusual, and it can't store its stylus internally.

  • Pros: Good display quality despite low resolution, Stable performance, Surprisingly good battery life, Camera does well even in low light, White colour looks good
  • Cons: Too big, some say, Pricey, Stylus not on the same level as Samsung's S-Pen

  • Summary: Even with the success of the larger screen smartphones like Samsung’s GALAXY Note, not many developers were eager to jump into this form factor for various reasons. However, earlier this year, we saw LG showcasing its Optimus Vu smartphone at MWC 2012 and today, we are bringing you an in-depth review of this larger than average smartphone.

LG Optimus Vu Review

YugaTech
25 November 2012
  • Summary: The Optimus Vu has its fair share of shortcomings, the 4:3 aspect ratio is among them. Also, the stylus was supposed to make the device unique and special — but it didn’t really turn out that way (we’re really hoping it will add value when you need to use it for sketching/drawing).

  • Summary: The 5” LG Optimus Vu is finally coming to Malaysia and before moving on, it’s pronounced as “view” or “vue”, not “voo”. I have to admit, when I first saw the original LG Optimus Vu in pictures, it looked really awkward, in fact if I may be totally honest, it looks pretty ugly with its unique 4:3 aspect ratio that makes the phone look too squarish.

LG Optimus Vu Review

Tech2
8 October 2012
  • Summary: With a price tag of Rs. 34,990, the LG Optimus Vu is one expensive phone and quite frankly, doesn’t make sense at all. You can find it online for as low as Rs. 30,000 but this is still quite expensive. Our main issue is the form factor and while it may suit web browsing, it’s terribly inconvenient for both apps as well as ergonomics.

LG Intuition – the Optimus Vu is finally coming to the US, courtesy of Verizon

Gadgetmania
7 October 2012
  • Conclusion: The LG Intuition is coming this fall to Verizon, and the price will be $200 with a contract, which is on par with the Galaxy Note and other high end smartphones. If you need a device for note taking and high speed Internet usage and have a large enough sleeve or pockets, the LG Intuition is certainly worth a look.
