LG Intuition Review
Phone calls on the LG intuition are for the most part tolerable, though, there’s a hint of crackling with the earpiece at the loudest setting, which is rather average in overall volume output. Regardless, our callers fared better on their end thanks to the clear and distinct voices they’re presented with. Using the speakerphone, there’s some muffling heard with it.

During our time testing out the handset, it didn’t drop a single call in the greater Philadelphia area. Moreover, we’re happy to report that it’s also able to maintain a solid 4G LTE connection indoors.


Battery:

Large 5-inch screen, 4G LTE connectivity, and a 2,080 mAh battery don’t quite sound as though they’ll all play nicely together. Hardly a shocker, it all results into one poor battery life for the LG Intuition. In fact, we’re only able to get close to the 9 hour mark before it’s completely tapped out – so yeah, it’s going to need constant charging to last you throughout the day.


Conclusion:

Well, after checking out the LG Intuition extensively from head-to-toe, our gut instinct is nudging to move on ahead – from this one, that is. Sure, its massive size is sure to amaze some random strangers as you whip it out from your pockets, but beyond that, there isn’t anything compelling to make it a worthwhile competitor to the first-generation Samsung Galaxy Note’s throne. Throw in the fact that its Rubberdium pen isn’t anything different from any other capacitive stylus there, it merely reinforces in our head that Samsung’s take on the whole pen and paper thing is vastly superior in all aspects – even more when there’s no slot to tuck away the Rubberdium stylus!

For $199.99, it’s sure to be in consideration for those Verizon customers yearning for a Note-like smartphone, but if you’re not tethered to the carrier, we’d suggest checking out the Galaxy Note for AT&T or T-Mobile, or waiting for the second generation Note II. On the other hand, Verizon offers the Samsung Galaxy S III which is an excellent smartphone and its 4.8” HD screen is almost as big. All in all, our intuition is telling us to pass on this one – as it is rather last generation hardware coming late to Verizon.
