It has been a great time for people who like the whole ‘PHABLET’ (single term for the hybrid between a smartphone and tablet computer) concept with so many of them thronging the market in the recent times. Dell was the first company that tried to discover this field in the market however; the experiment was a flop then. But today there are so many companies executing Dell’s experiment with lot of success- LG and Samsung being the front runners in the competition. Both the companies have come up with their very own Phablets in the recent times and are challenging each other in the market. The Galaxy Note which was released in the month of October is facing tough competition from the LG rival Optimus Vu. Let us take a look at exactly what sets the two devices apart and what do they have for their owners.
The Samsung Galaxy Note which was released in the final quarter of last year is the first device that boasts a screen of over 5 inches. In fact it bears a 5.3’’ Super AMOLED screen with a whopping 800 x 1280 pixel resolution which is the same that you have in your laptops or personal computers and on smaller screen results in an amazing pixel density of 285 pixels per inch (ppi). It comes with a stylus which is a mouth watering thing for most of the smartphone owners.
On the inside it bears a powerful 1.4 GHZ processor and runs the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system skinned up with the Touchwiz UI. The Galaxy Note also sports an 8-megapixel rear camera capable of 1080p video recording, while up front there is a 2-megapixel shooter. As far as the data connection is concerned it bears the latest 4G technology and gives some really amazing browsing speeds. There are several reasons why you should be buying the Samsung made Galaxy Note.
- Larger screen
- Better resolution
- Stylus available as accessory
- Better front camera
- EDGE/GPRS availability
As far as the LG Optimus VU is concerned it is expected to release in the month of march of this year and is ready to go directly after the Galaxy Note, the device seems to be very similar to the Galaxy Note in more ways than one. The LG monster shall bear a slightly smaller screen of 5.0 inches with the amazing HD-IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen technology bearing 16M colors. It bears a resolution of 784 X1024 pixels with the pixel intensity of 256 PPI. There is no news of a stylus coming with the device but the size of the device is definitely manageable to be operated using only the fingers and there is no need of a stylus there. As far as processing power of the device is concerned it is extremely powerful being powered by a Dual-core 1.5 GHz Scorpion Qualcomm MSM8660 Snapdragon processor running the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system. The Optimus Vu bears 8MP rear camera that is capable of 1080p video recording with a 1.3 MP camera in the front. As far as the data connectivity is concerned even this one bears the 4G technology that can give some unbelievable browsing speeds. The device bears amazing sound with the new Dolby Sound Enhancement technology that comes along with the device. The reasons that might lure you into buying the LG Optimus Vu are:
- Better clocked processor
