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 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 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 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

Extremely wide ; Screen has odd aspect ratio ; No worldwide model just yet

LG Optimus Vu Android phone (preview)


LG Optimus Vu preview: Is it a big smartphone or a small tablet?

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

Extremely wide ; Screen has odd aspect ratio ; No worldwide model just yet

With an extremely wide screen aspect ratio of 4:3, the LG Optimus Vu is definitely a contender for the oddest phone of 2012. Its huge 5in screen may prove to be handy for digital note taking, but it remains to be seen whether the odd shape of the...

LG Optimus Vu review: a 5-inch, pen-enabled phone to take on the Galaxy Note


Tech companies are no strangers to the game of follow the leader -- industry imitation is, after all, the sincerest sign of a successful product. In the

Fantastic HD-IPS display ; Excellent camera

Stylus can't be stowed in the device ; Stylus integration is half-baked ; Runs Gingerbread

The Optimus Vu is a half-hearted stab at the phablet category pioneered by the Galaxy Note. It's a follower, not a leader, and is best left untouched.
