LG Optimus Vu Review

0. phoneArena posted on 29 Jun 2012, 01:36

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 whether that’s a phone or a tablet. Chances are you won’t see it a lot though as it’s only selling in Korea at the moment and we don’t expect it to arrive to Western markets anytime soon...

yeah, this phone is kinda trash. Verizon is better off without it.

Well, it looks like Verizon thinks this will "fit our reality"... for whatever reason...

the aspect ratio is really not the way to do it.
How to make a fail into a win, LG?
Update it with Jelly Bean and add a beautiful UI to complement the fat screen.

It's obviously designed for Korean users, getting it to other countries is probably LG's experiment.

Looks alright...
Wait, WHAT? Gingerbread?
LG deserves to be hung by the balls on the horn of a unicorn.

How is this a preview? The only thing that missing compared to a review is the rating.
I'll help you out. This gets a 7. Not bad if you can handle the design/size.

Leave it to Verizon to pass on the Note and get this crap. Galaxy Note might be running crapdragon but I'm sure it still outperforms this and has a better and more comfortable to hold display.

it's like choosing which dusty, old lady would you be better going home with. it's a decision we really shouldn't subject ourselves to when there's Supermodels like the SIII and soon the Razr HD and the Note 2 to choose from.

Party poopers. I think it's a cool phone. I saw it at the Verizon store recently (it's November now) and really, really liked it! Why? The VISIBILITY. You can see the screen! It also handles like an e-reader; the 4:30 is great. But I'm now with AT&T and until it works with its 4GLTE I'm out of luck. For now, I chat with my Austin hair salon clients with my Nexus.
