Last year LG unveiled the V10, a giant smartphone (or phablet) with a 2.1″ second screen above its 5.7” Quad HD display. It felt as robust as Droid Turbo 2 with a ruggedized back and a solid aluminum frame. It was far too large for the average consumer, yet it was weirdly satisfying to use. We called it “bold,” “sexy,” and “clean and industrial.” It had a decent dual-camera and wonderful internal specs. And we generally really liked the thing.
“Is that the Holy Bible in your pants or are you just happy to see me?”
“Are you still playing the Game Boy®?”
“Have you quit your career to become a traveling book salesman?”
These are all questions that you receive while storing the LG Intuition in your pants pocket. That is, if you can fit it in your pants pocket. The Intuition is a clear response to the Galaxy Note by Samsung (Read my thoughts on the Note here). Bigger than a smartphone but smaller than a tablet, these devices are known by many as a “phablet”. While strikingly unoriginal, there really isn’t a more suitable classification for a device such as this. It is a hybrid of sorts. An alien.
The problem with these devices is that they are just too big for a smartphone and too small to be a tablet. I am not sure if a smartphone could ever replace a tablet and vice versa.
With that said, let’s dive a little deeper in to the madness that is: the LG Intuition.
