Summary: Despite a few quibbles with the touch screen, its full features and excellent performance make the LG Vu one of the hottest phones this year.
Pros: The LG Vu is a super sexy touch-screen phone with a 3-inch display and haptic feedback. Features include AT&T Mobile TV, HSDPA speeds, a 2.0-megapixel camera, a full HTML browser, and quad-band support.
Cons: The LG Vu's camera lacks flash, and there's a learning curve involved with the touch screen. Streaming video was a little choppy as well.
Conclusion: As more and more handsets enter the touch screen market, it just sets the bar higher for the next model. Each manufacturer has to come up with its own way to differentiate the phone to draw customers away. Well, with all the models out there, the Vu sure does have its job cut out for it and there is no excuse to cut itself short. Sadly, there are just a lot lacking to keep it from the top. For starters, the touch screen just isn’t on par with the rest of the competition.
Pros: Mobile TV, Full HTML browser, QWERTY keyboard makes use of the screen in landscape view, Great voice quality
Cons: Terrible sensitivity when scrolling and not using scrollbars, Screen is easily washed out in sunlight, Keyboard changes or is not present at times, Feels cheap for the price, Poor image quality, Can’t move multiple files at one time, Email wizard lacks an option to create an account not found in the list, Location of microSD slot, Material scratches easily
LG Vu CU920 Cell Phone (AT&T): Comparable But Not An iPhone Killer
Personal Electronics buzz
12 June 2008
Excerpt: The LG Vu Cu920 cell phone is designed for the HSDPA-3G AT&T network. I saw it and decided it had more features than the iPhone and it cost about $100 less. The biggest difference between the iPhone and the LG Vu is the SD card slot and the optional AT&T streaming TV. The 3-inch touchscreen seemed comparable to the iPhone. However, after a few weeks of use, the LG Vu touchscreen seems to be a little slow on the uptake. Overall, I like the LG Vu Cu920.
Conclusion: Overall: The LG CU920 has a lot to offer with its 3G and HSDPA tandem. It offers a lot of conveniences, especially for those who travel a lot. This is also one phone you can use for your transactions anywhere in the globe. Many young professionals will really get a good deal with this CU920. It has everything you would want in a modernized mobile. Aside from that, you can actually store as many photos, videos and data as you deem necessary.
Pros: The best feature of the LG CU920 would be its internet accessibility, 3G, quadband and video calling capabilities. With its internet access, you can send e-mails and Instant Messages. You can also easily surf for games and videos. With its quadband functions, roaming and signal access is no longer a problem for you when you travel. With its 3G and video calling attributes, you can see the person calling you. This is also a good way to filter the calls you get.
Cons: The LG CU920 has not yet been released in the market. Thus, it will be available sometime soon. There is no current negative remark or feedback given about the CU920. The only thing, for now, would be its black color. It may be best if there are varieties, instead of the usual black casing.
Conclusion: We like the Vu quite a lot. It's small, light and attractive with that chic look. Yes, it's plastic and pales in comparison to the iPhone's modern skyscraper glass and metal shtick, but when compared to mere mortal phones, it's good stuff. The touch screen is large, lovely and perfect for TV. Better yet, it responds well and the haptic feedback makes it more natural than interacting with lifeless glass.
Pros: Lovely looking, small and light. Very good haptic touch screen that's large, bright and clear. Autofocus camera takes good shots when there's enough light. Plenty of Bluetooth profiles including DUN, and A2DP sounds great. HTML web browser does a good job, YouTube mobile support is a welcome touch and broadcast TV looks really sharp. Fast and responsive in all respects. Good IM client.
Cons: 3G reception is below average. Music player doesn't play nicely with iTunes AAC files despite claimed support. Fingerprint magnet. Email provider support is limited. Must remove battery to access the microSD card slot. Battery meter is inaccurate (drops quickly after charge is half drained).
Excerpt: The LG Vu is very similar in design to the iPhone. While the Vu may look like the iPhone , the touch interface was not nearly as smooth. Like the LG Dare , scrolling can be a problem with the Vu. The screen measures three inches and boasts a 240 x 400 pixel resolution, placing it among the better displays available. Lacking an integrated light sensor, however, the Vu’s screen can be difficult to view in sunlight.
