The LG Intuition, called the Optimus Vu outside of the US, is finally available on Verizon. It’s the Galaxy Note competitor, packing a 5″ 1024×768 4:3 ratio display, a 1.5 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP camera, and Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box (something the international model doesn’t have). Your focus should be on the display though. Not only is it a significantly lower resolution than the original Galaxy Note, but it is also 4:3 ratio. Meaning that though it has a smaller display, it’s actually wider. That results in a more awkward feel in the hand you really have to try out before buying.
If you’re interested, despite knowing that the better Galaxy Note II and a rumored HTC phablet are coming out, you can drop $199 on one of these devices today.
