Engadget Review

The Optimus Vu is a half-hearted stab at the phablet category pioneered by the Galaxy Note. It's a follower, not a leader, and is best left untouched.

The massive LG Intuition phablet offers a sprawling 5-inch screen for browsing, reading, and taking notes, but it's not a great smartphone.

Sadly, the highlights of the LG Intuition are few and far between.

Phone Scoop
I could only recommend the LG Intuition to those who absolutely do not want both a tablet and a smartphone and are seeking something that falls in between. Even then, I strongly suggest you go to a Verizon Wireless store and use this device before purchasing it.

The Intuition ... feels half baked: LG nailed “big” and threw in a stylus, but disappointing ergonomics coupled with an ugly design make the Intuition a tough sell.

It does represent a step in the right direction, and while the Intuition will probably take a beating from the Samsung Note II, we're hoping the LG's next phablet offering gets it right.
