Verizon's beefy, 5-inch LG Intuition Video Transcript
-Hello everybody. It's La here from CNET bringing you guys the ginormous LG Intuition. Now, if you think you are seeing dÃ©jÃ vu, pun intended, you're not alone. We took a look at this phone tablet hybrid a while ago back when it debuted in Korea and was called the LG Optimus Vu. It's now available in the U.S., however, under Verizon and serves as LG's answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note. The device sports the same 5-inch IPS LCD display with a 4 x 3 aspect ratio. It's powered by a 1.5-gigahertz dual core processor and a 2.08 amperes hour battery, which rougly translates to 15 hours of reported usage time. On the back, there's an 8-megapixel camera that's capable of shooting full HD 1080p video. And there's also a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The handset also comes with a Rubberdium pen, which is LG's fancy name for the stylus. In conjunction with the Intuition's quick note features, users can easy jot down some notes or draw a quick sketch. Lastly, the device is NFC enabled and is equipped with these 2 LG Tag+ stickers for your car and office. These stickers activate certain settings on your phone. So-- So, whenever you get in your car and you wanna launch the navigation app and turn bluetooth on, just set it here and save it. Stick the car mode sticker in your car and now every time you get in and tap it, those settings will activate. In general, Verizon's version is still pretty much the same as its international counterpart. However, one big welcomed difference is that this phone ships natively with android 4.0 ice cream sandwich. If you're interested, the device is going for $200 after a 2-year contract. Again. I'm Lynn and this has been the behemoth LG Intuition.
Originally launched as the ZTE Iconic Phablet, the Boost-branded Max is a 5.7-inch 4G LTE phone with a dual-core processor, Android 4.1.2, and an 8-megapixel camera.
A slick, slim device, the HTC One S combines Android Ice Cream Sandwich with a dual-core processor and large, 4.3-inch screen.
Sprint's Kyocera Torque is a rugged and waterproof Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich handset with a 4-inch WVGA display, 5-megapixel camera, and 1.2GHz dual-core processor.
The unlocked Huawei Honor will get you a 4-inch screen, an 8-megapixel camera, and dual-core speeds, plus access to Android Ice Cream Sandwich.
Although it runs the latest Android OS (Ice Cream Sandwich) and has a marginally improved dual-core processor, the Archos 101 G9 Turbo version isn't worth its trouble and price.
The LG Spirit 4G is a prepaid dual-core handset from MetroPCS that packs a 4.5-inch screen, a 5-megapixel camera, and runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
With an agreeable $100 sticker price, the new Motorola Atrix HD offers fast dual-core power, a big and bright 4.5-inch screen, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, plus 4G LTE in a very attractive package.
Though it's marketed as a midlevel device, the LG Optimus L7 runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and has an impressive 4.3-inch Nova screen.
The LG Optimus 3D Max isn't available in the US yet, but with its 4.3-inch 3D screen, NFC capabilities, and 1.2 dual-core processor, we hope to see it sometime soon.
Running Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich and driven by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, the Motorola Photon Q will certainly surpass Motorola's Droid 4.
LG Intuition (Verizon Wireless) Review
The good: Verizon's LG Intuition has 4G LTE, NFC capabilities, and runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The bad: The Intuition may be unwieldy for some, its screen's 4:3 aspect ratio is unusual, and it can't store its stylus internally.
The bottom line: The LG Intuition from Verizon is a reasonably priced, Android 4.0 'phablet,' but its specs can't compete with Samsung's Galaxy Note family.
