I'm Ken Sherman, senior managing editor at cnet.com.
I'm here at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
I wanna show you the LG Optimus View.
This is one of the few phones that LG has announced here.
This would call in a half phone, half tablet or tablet territory as we like to call it.
So that means, it's gonna be bigger than a usual phone.
It's actually a 5 inch screen.
So gonna be a lot bigger than what you used to hold in your hands.
It is pretty slim.
It's only 8.5 millimeters.
So you can put it in your pocket pretty well.
Of course it's gonna take up a lot of room, but as far as a co pocket like my jacket cup pocket right here, it sits very well.
Besides the usual, the virtual keyboard and a phone dialler as you're used to.
As actually a notebook, you can draw, you can make notes.
So very much the same experience as you see in some tablets and a Galaxy Note, you can certainly type, you can use the keyboard, but then you can use the stylus as well.
The back has a little bit of a textured cover.
Does have a bit of a plastic feel which I'm not totally in love with.
The phone has a comfortable feeling in the hands, feels a little bottom heavy so when I was using (it?).
gonna fall forward a bit.
But it's a minor complaint, wouldn't make a big deal out of it.
What's great about this phone really is the display.
I think it's gorgeous, really like the resolution and do like it and I think.
the size is really gonna be a personal choice but if you're into this kind of size, you think it's cool, then definitely check this out.
