LG Optimus Vu Review
At first glance, the LG Optimus Vu is eye-poppingly huge and with a 1,5GHz dual-core processor, it should be able to run most apps adequately. Simple tasks like switching from portrait to landscape mode, opening large apps and swiping through homescreens are performed with no noticeable lag time.
The gorgeous 5” IPS display has 1024 x 768 resolution; it seems to have the clarity, sharpness and the brightness of the first two iPad models. Viewing angles are wide and colors are nicely saturated. Just like the Galaxy Note, the Optimus Vu also comes with a stylus, which is comfortable to hold and surprisingly solid. The phablet comes with a 1.3Mp front-facing shoter and 8Mp rear-facing camera. The quality of snapped picture is decent, although top smartphones still deliver better detailed images. Just like other phablets, the enormous size could deter some people from using the Optimus Vu as a main smartphone, but it should be a good alternative for those who find a 7” tablet too bulky. Unfortunately, it comes with Gingerbread (Android 2.3), which now looks really dated.
