LG Intuition 4G LTE Smartphone review – The Gadgeteer
News from LG Intuition 4G LTE Smartphone review – The Gadgeteer:

What do you get when you take a smartphone and a tablet and put them in a dark room with some Barry White music on the stereo? A bouncing baby Phablet, that’s what. Phablet’s are becoming pretty popular lately. Just look at the oversized smartphones like the Samsung GALAXY Note and Note 2. But what about a phone like the LG Intuition, which looks much less like a phone and more like a mini tablet?  Verizon Wireless sent me one to try for a few days. Here are some quick thoughts.

Happy 2nd Birthday Windows Phone 7: This Is Your Life
News from TechCrunch:

Windows Phone 7, Microsoft’s big return to the smartphone stage after Windows Mobile’s gradual decline and demise, turns two today, according to a tweet by Joel Belfiore, Microsoft’s head of Windows Phone product definition and design. So I thought it would be fitting to take a look back at Windows Phone 7′s life up until now, and what the mobile OS has or hasn’t done for Microsoft so far.

On October 21, 2010, the first Windows Phone 7 handsets officially went on sale in New Zealand, Australia and parts of Europe and Asia. 10 launch devices brought the mobile OS to users, made by HTC, Dell, Samsung and LG (early highlights of the lineup included the LG Optimus 7, Samsung Omnia 7 and HTC HD7), spanning 60 carriers in 30 countries, and expanding to more in 2011. Early sales were promising in some markets, and even generated lines according to an AT&T spokesman, but overall failed to impress, with only 40,000 total units reportedly sold in the first day of U.S. availability.

Super-sized LG Intuition targets “phablet”…

Super-sized LG Intuition targets “phablet”…
News from The Morning Sun:

What exactly is the LG Intuition? That’s the whole point … there is no exact definition. It works as a smartphone, but at 5 inches it’s also large enough to be considered a sort of mini-tablet. “Phablet” is one word that’s been thrown around, and they throw a pen in that can be used to maneuver around the screen, to further the tablet identity.

There are a limited number of options in this category. First the Samsung Galaxy Note came out to basically establish this new category of wireless device (and the Galaxy Note’s sequel is about to arrive … more on that later), but there is another entry in this category now to give Samsung some competition – the LG Intuition, available from Verizon Wireless, which I recently had the chance to test.

I’ll let you know how it performed, and how it fits into the overall market for smartphones and tablets.

LG Optimus G
News from CNET:

For the last several years, LG has struggled to create a compelling, high-quality phones that outsell competing models. With the Optimus G, LG aims higher than ever before…and mostly nails it.

With its large, bright, and beautiful display; Android 4.0; LTE speeds; and Qualcomm’s first, very fast, very impressive quad-core processor, AT&T’s version of the Optimus G is one of LG’s best-ever phones.

Yet even though LG reaches for the top, the Optimus G still fails to offer anything truly innovative or wowing, apart from the chipset. The Optimus G’s design is pleasant and functional, but uninspired; its 8-megapixel camera is weaker than that of the top-tier competition, and its battery life can’t meet the phone’s bright screen and performance demands. (Sprint’s Optimus G version is arguably the better device, thanks to its crisper 13-megapixel camera.)

There’s very little that’s actually wrong with the device, but even with the bulging processing muscle, the Optimus G won’t sweep aside the Samsung Galaxy S3 or iPhone 5, and we expect the forthcoming HTC One X+ and Nokia Lumia 920 to put on the pressure.

Design and build
The LG Optimus G, which comes in black and white, has a familiar square slate design. The corners round ever so slightly, but the edges of the phone face drop in steep cliffs that cre…………… continues on CNET

LG’s Intuition Off the Mark

LG’s Intuition Off the Mark
News from All Things Digital:

Confession: When Samsung first released its Galaxy Note smartphone last February, I thought the company was crazy.

Part smartphone, part tablet — or “phablet,” as some like to call it — the Galaxy Note is ginormous, and I just couldn’t imagine anyone wanting to use such a big device as their phone. But a sequel is on the way, and competitors are following suit.

One of those competitors is the LG Intuition, which is available now from Verizon Wireless for $ 200 with a two-year contract. I spent the past week with this phablet, and though it offers a spacious five-inch display and speedy performance, I would not buy this device. It has an unwieldy design, and the screen’s odd aspect ratio has trouble displaying some apps. And use of 4G takes a big toll on battery life. Also, the included stylus and note-taking apps should be highlights of this device, but feel like afterthoughts.

One thing’s for sure: The Intuition will turn some heads. It almost makes the Galaxy Note look svelte, even though the Note is a quarter of an inch taller.

What makes this thing so cumbersome? It’s super-wide. The device measures 3.56 inc…………… continues on All Things Digital

LG announces Optimus Vu 2 smartphone
News from Inquirer:

KOREAN PHONE MAKER LG announced its Optimus Vu smartphone today, which has specifications almost identical to those of its first generation sibling.

Set to make its debut in Korea, the LG Optimus Vu 2 sports a newer design than the original Vu, but this houses an identical 5in 4:3 aspect ratio screen and a lackluster 1.5GHz dual-core processor. What’s more disappointing is that the phone will come running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), even though its main rival the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will start shipping with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on Monday.

Still, for those who are after a large-screened phone it’s not all that bad, as the Optimus Vu also comes with an improved Rubberdium 2.0 stylus for on-screen doodling, which boasts a “thinner and more precise” tip.

There’s also an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, integrated NFC technology and support for LTE connectivity. The phone will be available in white, black or pink flavours.

The LG Optimus Vu 2 will soon be going on sale in Korea for around £530. LG has yet to confirm whether it will be coming to the UK, but, to be honest, we’re not very interested.

Apple iPhone 5 VS LG Optimus 4X HD – video comparison
News from Android Authority:

So you walk into an electronics store looking for a new smartphone. Sitting on top of the nearly empty shelf is the Apple iPhone 5, while a stack of boxes with LG Optimus 4X HD inside sit just across it. What do you do? What DO you DO? Should you go with what millions are currently trying to get their hands on or get the underdog in the Android world?

If you ever find yourself in such predicament, we suggest making comparisons between the two phones before you swipe your credit card. But guess what, we already did one for you; and we even made a video comparing the iPhone 5 and Optimus 4X HD in real life.

Not enough time? Jump straight to the Video Comparison or the Pros and Cons!

Specs

Display

The extra 0.5-inch that the iPhone 5 has over the predecessor won’t make you want to break out and sing “A Whole New World,” but it is a fine addition nonetheless. The increased resolution, now at 1,136 x 640, is a crowd pleaser as well. The iPhone 5 has another secret sauce in that it uses a brand new technology that removes an extra layer from the screen, which should…………… continues on Android Authority

More Info

  • LG Optimus Vu review
  • LG Intuition officially announced
  • Intuition by LG hands-on

It’s not uncommon for US carriers to take an international smartphone under their wings, make a few adjustments to hardware and firmware, stamp their fat logos in multiple places and then sell it to the masses. Verizon is no exception: the LG Intuition is its interpretation of the Optimus Vu, a 5-inch phablet we reviewed over the summer. Perhaps calling it an “interpretation” is a bit of an overstatement: aside from a bump in firmware and Big Red’s LTE,…………… continues on LG Intuition review: Optimus Deja Vu with a Verizon LTE twist – Engadget

Will Verizon be launching LG Intuition on September 15th?

Will Verizon be launching LG Intuition on September 15th?
News from The Droid Guy:

In this amidst crowd of Smart phones, we have another stiff competition at our hands in this September. Who is it this time? Samsung? HTC? It’s neither Samsung nor HTC; in fact it’s none other than LG, joining the big league of Smartphone companies like Samsung and Apple, to be releasing their phone next month.

The LG Optimus VU is coming to Verizon finally. This isn’t something new for the daily techno buffs since we’ve been hearing this news from a very long time and it’s about time the phone comes out. However, there is something new from the daily news, the carrier, as Verizon plans on changing the name of the phone which would soon appear on the line named as the LG Intuition.

There have been leaked pictures seen of the phone over the internet, which we suspect aren’t the real ones however we’ll still give you a quick review about it. The press render seems to show the all new Optimus VU/ Intuition with the collaboration of Verizon. The pictures are pretty much similar to the live pictures which have already been seen by most of us.

Another interesting thing about the phone is that it gives us clues towards the date when the phone is likely to be re…………… continues on The Droid Guy

Coolpad: We Can Build Better Budget Phones
News from PC Magazine:

MetroPCS today announced the Coolpad Quattro 4G, the first U.S. smartphone from Chinese firm Yulong Coolpad.

The Quattro 4G is $ 99 without a contract, but Coolpad says it can offer a better build quality and better radio performance at $ 99 than its competitors.

This may be Coolpad’s first U.S. phone, but it’s a well-known name in Asia. Yulong Coolpad has been making phones since 1993. The brand “Coolpad” comes from the old “PDA days,” when the company was known for its Chinese-language handwriting recognition software, Nick Chen, president of Coolpad Americas said.

Like its much larger rivals Huawei and ZTE, Coolpad is based in Shenzhen. With 3,000 employees, it’s only a tiny fraction of those other companies’ size. But it punches well above its weight; continues on PC Magazine

Report: Verizon to sell LG’s 5-inch phone as the LG Intuition
News from GigaOM:

After selling 500,000 units of its Optimus Vu, LG is reportedly partnering with Verizon to bring the 5-inch smartphone to the U.S. The timing is odd, as is the phone’s 4 : 3 aspect ratio, given the success of the Galaxy Note and its coming soon successor.

After passing up on Samsung’s 5.3-inch Galaxy Note, Verizon reportedly plans to sell LG’s 5-inch Optimus Vu smartphone. Droid Life posted a screen shot that shows the handset will cost $ 199.99 with contract, or $ 549.99 without, and it will be named the LG Intuition. As with all other smartphones that Verizon now releases, the Android-powered Intuition will support the operator’s 4G LTE network.

The leaked information follows just two days after LG announced the phone would be sold internationally. The handset maker launched the device in Korea, where it has sold 500,000 units. It’s likely that LG will have to use two different chip suppliers for the Vu based on my news report earlier this week:

Next month, consumers in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America can purchase the inte…………… continues on GigaOM

Qualcomm confirms Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core in upcoming LG phones
News from Android Community:

Over the past few weeks we’ve seen a few leaks regarding an upcoming smartphone from the folks at LG that is rather powerful. Blasting through benchmarks and sounding quite impressive. Then even more details leaked regarding the LG Optimus G smartphone. We now can confirm that Qualcomm‘s extremely fast and efficient new quad-core will be powering the device.

The current processor powering all the most popular smartphones is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, that manages to hold its own rather well against current quad-cores. We got our first look at the new S4 Pro quad-core last month but we now know it is coming, and coming soon.

Qualcomm has confirmed they’ve partnered with LG and have been collaborating on releasing a powerful quad-core 4G LTE device they are calling a “global device.” This will support full 3G and 4G LTE with what they call 3G/LTE multi-mode. So the tradeoff between 3G and 4G LTE will be seamless — something we haven’t seen in the past.
