First Look: Verizon's beefy, 5-inch LG Intuition

1:49 /

As the U.S. version of the LG Optimus Vu, the LG Intuition sports the same ginormous 5-inch screen, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and Rubberdium stylus. One giant and welcomed changed, however, is that it ships natively with the more recent, Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich.

-Hello everybody. It's La here from CNET bringing you guys the ginormous LG Intuition. Now, if you think you are seeing déjà 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.
