What is a hands on review?


Early Verdict

While we applaud LG for breaking the mould with the screen on the Optimus Vu 2 we can"t help but think the handphối is just a bit too impractical. The oddly shaped screen will put a lot of people off và it doesn"t offer anything particularly outstanding.

You still get a 4:3 aspect ratio display, which clocks in at 5-inches và boasts a 1024x768 XGA resolution.

The odd shape of the screen means the Optimus Vu 2, likes its predecessor is more of a square shape which makes the handset very wide và difficult lớn hold in one hand.

LG has managed to keep the weight down on the Vu 2 and the frame is quite thin so while your fingers may be struggling to properly wrap round at least your wrist isn"t giving way.

It looks like a premium device thanks to the metallic frame running around its perimeter, but the sturdy chassis of the Optimus Vu 2 is predominantly plastic with no brush aluminium in sight.

To help manipulate the expansive sầu display LG bundles a stylus with the Optimus Vu 2, but there"s no space khổng lồ slide it into lớn the handmix lượt thích you can with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which makes us think it will get lost in a matter of days.

The screen itself is bright & responsive and we had no trouble navigating our way around Android, although we were disappointed lớn find the LG Optimus Vu 2 was only running Ice Cream Sandwich và not Jelly Bean.

With a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM the Vu 2 has plenty of power under the hood & that makes for a smooth user experience và apps which open quickly.

You get 16GB of internal storage in the Optimus Vu 2 and there"s a microSD card slot on hvà if you feel the need to exp& the memory capabilities.

LG has pre-installed Google Chrome alongside the stock Android browser, & thanks khổng lồ its 4G connectivity, svào Wi-Fi support & powerful processor we we"re able to lớn nip around the web at a decent pace.

Both desktop và Mobile sites looked good on the Optimus Vu 2, & the 4:3 aspect ratio makes viewing full versions of websites easier.

Video playbachồng on the Vu 2 was pretty good, but it isn"t the best we"ve seen on a smartphone and the 4:3 display really isn"t suited khổng lồ cinema footage, as you"re stuck between having large black bars above sầu & below or a distorted image if you want it khổng lồ fill the screen.

The Optimus Vu 2 comes with LG"s QSlide feature, which lets you make the đoạn phim you"re watching become a transparent overlay on the handmix, allowing you khổng lồ use other features of the phone without interrupting playbaông chồng.

There"s a slider present at the top of the display allowing you lớn adjust the opacity of the film and the transition from movie watching lớn the transparent, multitasking layer is a smooth one.

Another LG innovation is Vu: Talk which allows you khổng lồ chia sẻ your screen with another Optimus Vu 2 và gives both users the ability to lớn draw on screen, chia sẻ maps và make notes in real time và even during calls.

It"s a pretty impressive sầu feature but due lớn the limitation of both people requiring the handmix to make it work, it"s one we fear won"t get a great giảm giá of use.

The 8MPhường. camera on the bachồng of the LG Optimus Vu 2 produces some pretty good quality images, & with features such as a flash, HDR, panorama, burst mode and a voice controlled shutter the tiện ích is well stocked.

Shutter speed is quick và the voice controlled option is a fun way to take photos, with the simple commvà of "cheese" or "smile" enough for the Optimus Vu 2 lớn snap a picture.

There"s also a time machine mode which will take five photos before you hit the shutter, to ensure you don"t miss the action you"re trying lớn capture and it worked pretty well when we tested it out.

Thanks khổng lồ the large form size & awkward shape of the LG Optimus Vu 2 one handed typing is a bit of a struggle, but you can phối the keyboard khổng lồ bump up khổng lồ the left or right of the screen khổng lồ make it a little easier.

However this adjusted view means the keys become bunched up and the cramped layout can lead to mistakes.

Early Verdict

While we applaud LG for breaking the mould with the screen on the Optimus Vu 2 we can"t help but think the handmix is just a bit too impractical.

The oddly shaped screen will put a lot of people off at point of sale và it doesn"t offer anything particularly outstanding over the competition such as the Samsung Galaxy lưu ý 2.

If you want a big screened LG handmix you"re probably better off checking out the Optimus G Pro which sports a full HD, 5.5-inch display - although you don"t get a stylus with that.
