price N/A launch Oct, 2012

phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 5 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Good build quality
  • Android interface with Optimus UI
  • Smooth performance
  • Good internet browsing experience
  • Good on-screen keyboard
  • Decent camera
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Good call quality
  • Stylus is quite comfortable to hold

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Because of the large screen, along with the 4:3 aspect ratio, the phone is quite uncomfortable to hold as you have to really stretch your hand across for a good grip
  • Long term one handed usage is almost impossible
  • Feels strange in your pocket
  • Quite heavy, which adds to the discomfort
  • Screen resolution could have been better
  • No in-built slot on the phone to hold the stylus (like there is, in Galaxy Note for instance)
  • Because of the non-standard aspect ratio, a lot of the apps get rendered with black bars around them, which spoils the experience somewhat
  • Poor loudspeaker
