The LG Intuition is a neat device for the right person. If you’re looking for a tiny little mobile phone that tends to get lost if you put it in your pocket with your keys, this isn’t for you. However, if you are frustrated by the itty-bitty little screens on other smartphones, you just might love the Intuition.
The screen is large, so games are more immersive. You can get the big picture — literally — when sharing photos with friends, and you can view web pages without having to constantly scroll up and down and side to side to see everything.
Unfortunately this device isn’t for everyone, and you have to determine if you’re willing to give up some portability and pocketability in order to get that large screen. I also have some concerns about network connectivity, so check the coverage in your area to make sure that Verizon’s coverage is strong enough to suit your needs at home and where you’re likely to travel.
Verizon is currently offering the LG Intuition for $150 with a free Bluetooth headset, quite a good price.
- Large, vivid screen with sharp graphics provides an enhanced viewing experience
- Good sound quality, even at high volume
- Quite light and thin, considering its size
- Awkward to carry/stow, since it’s larger than a phone and smaller than a tablet
- Strange to use as a phone as well; better with a headset
- Issues with call quality and cell reception–more severe than what I expected testing other Verizon devices in the same locations
- Some viewing angle difficulties, depending on how you’re holding the device
