Wide handset, standard format screen

The LG Intuition, now on Verizon for $199.99, offers a big 5-inch screen that uses a standard 4:3 aspect ratio. LG says it designed the phone this way to better view the majority of documents and Web pages you'll come across.

Rubber for a paper feel

The LG Intuition's pen comes with a special rubber tip to emulate a paper-like friction as you drag it across the phone's glass screen.
