Do you like phones that look like they've been through a taffy puller? Then the LG Intuition (aka Optimus Vu) may be the phablet for you. The Intuition for Verizon was announced last week, and is available officially starting today, though Wirefly has (as usual) managed to offer it at a slightly more reasonable price: just $150 on contract (new agreement or upgrade). That's $50 less than Verizon is selling it for, so there's no denying it's a deal.


There is denying, though, that you might actually, you know, want this phone. I suppose the one thing you could say about the Intution is that it's definitely a, uh, conversation starter. Packing a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, Android 4.0, LTE, and its now-infamous 4:3 ratio 5" display, it's definitely respectable (if not mind-blowing) on paper. And hey, it comes with a stylus! So there's that.

Just expect some looks every time you use it in public.

    I can't decide if I like the look of it or not. The sharp corners look very clean, but also quite impractical.

    This thing reminds me of how crappy Verizon really is. They deserve this phone on it's battery draining LTE network. Good luck on whoever gets this.

      Says the dope who, for upwards of a year, went around all Android websites claiming how "shitty" and "piss poor" Verizon was, but then got a Galaxy Nexus when it was first available.
      Says the dope who doesn't even realize that T-Mobile is slated to get pretty much the exact same "battery draining" LTE that Verizon has.
      What a joke.
