Though it's used in conjunction with the Optimus Vu's TV and radio app, and not signal quality, the handset's antenna is definitely reminiscent of the early cell phone era.

The Rubberdium stylus

The Optimus Vu comes with a stylus that LG calls "Rubberdium." It's thicker than the Note's S-Pen, so it feels sturdy like a real pen, but it cannot store into the device itself.
