LG Optimus Vu shown off in demo video [Updated]


The LG Optimus Vu is massive. It's got a little over half the screen size measurement of an iPad (9.7-inch vs 5-inch), which makes it much bigger than some other large-screened competitors like the Samsung Galaxy Note. To clear up some confusion: the Vu's screen has a ratio of 4:3, versus the Galaxy Note's 16:10 – this makes for a larger surface area to write on. Although the Vu's screen is a bit shorter than the Galaxy Note's, the Vu's is wider. Click through to this comparison to see the difference.

The video shows off how fast and fluid the Vu works. I've yet to use a Galaxy Note, but LG's device certainly looks like it'll give the Note a run for its money. Particularly, I would think that a more squarish screen would be better to take notes on, but I'll have to wait to get my hands on one to make a final judgement.

Do watch the video, though. Aside from showing the amazing performance the Vu seems to have, the video also includes an adorable picture of a kitten and a test of the handwriting recognition.
