LG Optimus Vu review: Hands-on

 

The LG Optimus Vu sports a 5-inch screen and NFC capability and is a cross between a phone and a tablet, like the Samsung Galaxy Note

At first glance, the LG Optimus Vu is merely a response to its arch rival's Samsung Galaxy Note, but that's not to say that it doesn't have a lot going for it. Whether people really want these sort of phone-tablet hybrid devices remains to be seen, but...

LG Optimus Vu pictures and hands-on - Pocket-lint

 

The LG Optimus Note is one big phone. It is so big in fact that some might call it a tablet. Pocket-lint caught up with the new handset at Mobile World

LG Optimus Vu review

 

Aside from its massive screen, the front face of the Vu also includes the four standard Android navigation buttons (Menu, Home, Back, and Search) and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The volume rocker is located on the right spine of the device,...

The LG Optimus Vu has the makings of an excellent phone, but its dreadful design will leave your hand aching.

LG Optimus Vu

 

Hands On: LG takes on the Samsung Galaxy Note with its 5in, stylus-packing monster phone.

Overall, there are some elements of this phone we do like, but as phone it's unnecessarily big. It's both wider than the Note and the pen is far inferior. Currently the Vu is US only, but a UK version is to be announced. We'll be interested to see how...

LG Intuition Android Phablet Review

 

The LG Intuition has some pretty big shoes to fill when it comes to the competition. The Samsung Galaxy Note is an impressive phablet, and the LG Intuition can’t even begin to touch the Note 2 based on raw power. The 4:3 ratio aspect takes some getting...

LG Optimus Vu

 

The LG Optimus Vu has been tipped to launch at Mobile World Congress in February 2012, as a highly-specced competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Note.

The handset isn't as large as its Samsung-branded rival, as it will reportedly feature a more compact 5-inch 1024 x 678 LCD display. However, thanks to its 4:3 aspect ratio, the Optimus Vu will have a higher surface are than other similarly-sized devices.

MWC 2012: First Look: LG Optimus Vu review

 

If you thought Samsung's Galaxy Note was odd just wait until you see LG's Optimus Vu, which is easily the most bizarre we've ever seen. Not only is the Vu extremely large, having a 5-inch display, but it also uses a 4:3 aspect ratio and not the usual...

LG Optimus Vu Review - Tech2

 

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 no means an ordinary smartphone; in fact,...

LG Optimus Vu Review

 

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...

Since we’ve covered all the features of the UI in the Optimus 4X HD review, we’ll jump to the new one and that’s the QuickMemo app. You can activate it by simply pressing the shortcut key on the top. This lets you either write directly on the screen...

LG Optimus Vu Android phone

 

Is it a large smartphone or a small tablet? Officially, LG says its new Optimus Vu is a big smartphone. A very big one.

Huge 5in screen ; Just 8.5mm thick ; Rubberdium pen
