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.

When Samsung released its 5.3-inch Galaxy Note in February 2012, it started a whole new ballgame in the U.S. phone market. Though not everyone was a fan of its unprecedented size, it presented consumers with two options that were considered taboo: a stylus and an extra-large screen.
Luckily for Samsung, overwelcomed these features that were once thought of as unacceptable, and now LG is knocking on the phone/tablet hybrid's door with its own "phablet": The LG Intuition.
Previously released overseas as the, the Intuition differs from its international counterpart in two major ways: the U.S. version ships natively with the more recent Android 4.0, and it lacks the throwback TV antenna that the Vu had. It does, however, retain the same ginormous 5-inch screen, Rubberdium stylus, and 8-megapixel camera.
