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.

LG Optimus Vu review: Vu from the top


LG may have given up on tablets, but not on the Optimus Vu - it's halfway between a phone and a tablet, a hybrid of form factors that we like to call "phoneblets". The Samsung Note was one of the first, but that doesn't mean it can have the market all...

Dual-band CDMA, 1x EV-DO, HSDPA and LTE connectivity ; 5" 16M-color capacitive HD-IPS LCD touchscreen of XGA resolution (768 x 1024 pixels) ; LG Rubberdium stylus and QuickMemo button ; Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread ; Dual-core 1.5GHz ARM Scorpion...

microSIM cards only ; Runs older Android 2.3 Gingerbread ; Wide form factor needs getting used to ; 4:3 aspect ratio not a good fit for video watching ; No microSD card slot

The LG Optimus Vu is certainly an unusual device - some might see this as an advantage, but there are ergonomic reasons why phones aren't this wide. But the Vu isn't a phone, is it?

LG Optimus Vu (unlocked) review: LG Optimus Vu (unlocked)


As first impressions go, seeing the LG Optimus Vu will make your jaw drop -- and not necessarily in the good way.

The LG Optimus Vu is NFC-enabled, it has a decent screen, and for its size it's slim and lightweight.

The Vu is expensive, its aspect ratio is odd, it runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and you have to carry the stylus separately.

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.

LG Optimus Vu Review


Here's one phone that will leave a lasting impression on you from the very moment your first spot it - the LG Optimus Vu. This handset is eye-poppingly gigantic. It's so big the adjectives won't prepare you for its actual size and you'd be wondering...

Big bright screen, perfect for reading ; Spacious keyboard, great for typing

Too wide for one-handed use ; Not comfortable to hold in your pocket ; Most video doesn’t make use of 4:3 screen

The LG Optimus Vu is a brave and interesting experiment with the size of a smartphone. It’s phablet to its core - a smartphone moniker might still somehow fit the Galaxy Note, but you’d find it hard to twist your tongue and call this a phone.

LG Optimus Vu - Larger Than Life


The LG Optimus Vu and its differentiating 5.0-inch, 4:3 aspect ratio screen has finally hit our local shores after its first official appearance back in MWC 2012. Now updated with a Tegra 3 quad-core processor and the latest Quick Memo and Notebook...

More real estate ; Bright and crisp HD IPS screen ; User-friendly UI ; Excellent performance

Lackluster battery performance ; Camera performance needs improvement ; Width of device is very wide ; Very late market availability

The Optimus VU is frankly, a reasonable quad-core device with smooth performance, save for its dismal battery performance. Otherwise, it is probably Samsung's next best competitor and that in itself, being in close proximity in comparison with an...

LG Optimus Vu review


Oh Optimus Vu, what an odd little device you are. Developed as a less than subtle knee-jerk reaction to Samsung's Galaxy Note, the Vu went on sale in Korea earlier this year, and it'll s...

It’s not all bad, though. In ideal lighting conditions, the Vu can produce some impressive still shots, and we’ve been consistently impressed with its ability to capture highly detailed macro shots. But that’s doesn’t make up for the litany of other...

LG Optimus Vu [Updated With Video]


The 5-inch LG Optimus VU stands out not only because of its large form factor but also because of its unique 4:3 ratio. How does it fare under our scrutiny? Let's find out.

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
