LG Intuition Review

 

The LG Intution follows the mantra of "go big or go home," but we're leaning toward the latter. The large 5-inch display is beautiful with deep colors and sharp detail, and we like its fast Verizon LTE data speeds. The large stylus will definitely...

Solid performance and graphics, Blazing 4G LTE speeds, Large vivid display, Optimus overlay adds convenient shortcuts

Difficult to use with one hand, No stylus holder, Lacks handwriting recognition, Short battery life, Weak speaker

LG Optimus Vu [P895]

 

A 35k device with off beat dimensions and brilliant processing power. Has LG managed to bring a Note II competitor or is the size too odd for common use?

LG Optimus Vu Review

 

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....

Good display quality despite low resolution, Stable performance, Surprisingly good battery life, Camera does well even in low light, White colour looks good

Too big, some say, Pricey, Stylus not on the same level as Samsung's S-Pen

LG Optimus Vu P895 Review

 

LG Optimus Vu P895 is a smartphone-tablet hybrid which comes with NFC technology. It is now available at a price of Rs. 30,000(approx.) in India.

• Large and bright IPS Display ; • Good Processor

• Average camera quality ; • Stylus slot missing ; • Clumsy design

Optimus Vu P895 is a decent hybrid ofsmartphone and tablet from LG. But because of its unusual ergonomics and the late entry it had in the Indian market, it’s hard for us to recommend you this phablet. With competition like Galaxy SIII available at...

LG Optimus Vu Review

 

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...

Expert Review

 

Wide 5 inch screens, mind blowing camera, superb build quality and excellent performance

Poor loud speaker quality

All in all this LG Optimus Vu seems to be a me-too product of the popular Galaxy note with a bit lower price tag.
