The Optimus Vu has recently made its way over the United States as the LG Intuition. This marks an occasion for Verizon, as it gives them their first phablet ever- though not for long as the Note 2 is eventually supposed to make its way to the Big Red.
The Vu has done well globally, but it faces a very real threat: Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2. In every aspect, the Note 2 seriously beats out the Vu. With that in mind, LG is working on a successor phablet that will hopefully compete better against the Note 2.
The new Vu 2 is rumored to be powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 and features 2GB of RAM. It also will run Android ICS, has a 5-inch screen, 1024×768 resolution and a 4:3 aspect ratio. As you can tell, it hasn’t changed much from the original Vu.
How is that supposed to compete against the Note 2? Your guess is as good as mine. If LG was a bit wiser, they’d attempt to step up their game with a truly noteworthy competitor (pun intended). Still, it seems that there are a few tricks up there sleeve that might make the Vu 2 worthwhile, like a universal remote app.
Would you consider this over the Note 2 if the price is much, much lower? Or not even worth your time and consideration?
