When Samsung's Galaxy Note launched, it was treated as an enthusiast device, which would never gain mainstream popularity due to its hulking size. Of course, given the staggering popularity of the device (and its successors), it wasn't long before other companies sought to steal a piece of the action. LG's Optimus Vu was one such contender, packing a 5-inch display and a stylus but, and it's a big but, was hobbled from the get go. You see, LG didn't bother to integrate the stylus into the software, didn't offer an internal holster for the wand and committed the cardinal sin of shipping a 2012 smartphone with Gingerbread. What we want to know is: did you buy one? And if so, what, if anything would you change?
