LG Vu 3 Rumored To Be In The Works
LG attempted to beat Samsung at their own game with phablets by releasing the Optimus Vu, an oddly-shaped device. While we did not think it caught on too well, LG decided that it did and promptly released the Optimus Vu II, and now it seems that LG could be considering a successor. Given that Samsung is currently working on the Galaxy Note 3, we guess it wouldn’t be a complete […]

LG Boasts 1 Million Optimus Vu Units Sold In South Korea
A couple of days ago we reported that Samsung had managed to sell 1 million Galaxy Note 2 units back in South Korea, but it looks like Samsung isn’t alone as their South Korean competitor, LG, has similarly announced that they too have managed to sell 1 million units of the LG Optimus Vu in South Korea as well. While congratulations are certainly in order, it should be noted that […]

Verizon LG Intuition Review
Known as the LG Intuition in the USA, this smartphone has been introduced by LG as the LG Optimus Vu at Mobile World Congress. We had published a hands-on in early 2012. The goal for this device is to address the very large display smartphone market created by the Samsung Galaxy Note, which has sold more than 10M units since its launch.The LG Optimus Vu adds a few things to […]

LG Optimus Vu/Intuition press shot spotted, possible 15th September release
Last week we reported that the LG Optimus Vu “phablet” could be rebranded as the LG Intuition when it eventually makes its way onto Verizon. While we’re sure many of you guys are probably aware of how the LG Optimus Vu looks like, the folks at DroidDog have received an image of what appears to be the press shot of the device when it arrives on Verizon, and more interestingly […]


Global LG Optimus Vu gets Tegra 3
LG Has just announced that its “global” version of the LG Optimus Vu will use NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 instead of the original Qualcomm MSM8660 dual-core Snapdragon. To be fair, the SnapDragon is pretty good too, and we’re willing to bet that American carriers may end up choosing Qualcomm because of its better 4G LTE support, so you should interpret “global” as “non-Korean” here.The rest of the phone should stay […]

LG Optimus Vu in the USA in "weeks"?
Better late than never: the LG Optimus Vu smartphone does not command unanimity on its very particular design, but there are some really good things about it: it’s big, wide (great for fast typing) and fast. Well, according to a Korean press release from LG, the 5″ Android smartphone is due to arrive in the USA in “the third quarter” of 2012 — that means within 6 weeks, which is […]

LG Optimus Vu from Verizon seen running on Ice Cream Sandwich
The LG Optimus Vu will join the rest of the “phablet” phenomenon, with the most famous device from this range being the Samsung Galaxy Note to date (which was announced by T-Mobile just earlier this morning, although the exact release date has yet to be mentioned). This particular device has been spotted in a leaked image, where it comes with full Verizon badging, which clearly points towards a Verizon release […]

LG Optimus Vu receives "Value Pack" Ice Cream Sandwich update in Korea
In May this year, we said that the Optimus Vu, a 5-inch device running Android, will be receiving Ice Cream Sandwich. We also mentioned that the device will get several additional features that will take advantage of the extra-wide dimensions of the phone. But apparently it took LG a month to fulfill its promise. Today, LG is announcing that the 5-inch “phablet” will be getting a “Value Pack” upgrade, finally […]

What do you do when you’re bored of the color black? Of course, you whitewash it. We got to tell you about what we just saw over at LG Korea. Apart from the pretty Korean lady, we’re looking at a white-colored version of the 5-inch Optimus Vu with a 4:3 aspect ratio that was recently priced and eventually, launched in the local market a couple of months ago. According to […]

Panasonic Eluga Power announced, possible Optimus Vu and Galaxy Note competitor
A little over a week ago, we reported on the Panasonic Eluga, an Android handset that marked the Japanese company’s re-entry into the European market. However it was later reported that apart from the Eluga, Panasonic had plans for a more high-end version of the Eluga, a “premium” model so to speak, and that model has been revealed to be the Panasonic Eluga Power.

LG Optimus Vu First Impressions
[MWC 2012] With the LG Optimus Vu, LG is entering deep into Galaxy Note territory, and while many consider these big smartphones to be a nice market (we haven’t heard actual sales numbers), both LG and Samsung seem to think that it’s more than that. I personally like the idea of a bigger smartphone – because I tend to use it more as a computer than as a phone, but […]

LG Optimus Vu preview
[MWC 2012] I got some hands-on time with LG’s new Vu, a rather large handset that is without a doubt a two handed smartphone. In some ways, this is LG’s Galaxy Note if you want. It has a different format as it is not as long. It looks a bit odd at first, but the wider display does provide a visually comfortable usage. For the hand, things are a bit […]

They have also managed to get their […]

Boasting LTE and IPS display technology, the LG Optimus Vu delivers a generous screen size that would definitely be pleasing to your eyes – could 5″ be the new 4.3″? We do […]
