The LG Optimus Vu that was revealed in the MWC 2012 is going to be shipped by Verizon as the LG Intuition. The LG Intuition is no different from the earlier designs except for the Verizon logo and its 4G LTE insignia. The device is scheduled to release shortly. The LG Intuition has some spectacular features and is expected to get some tough competition from top notch phones as the Samsung Galaxy S III. So, here is a comparison between the two phones.
The Intuition measures 139.6 mm lengthwise, 90.4 mm breadthwise and 8.5 mm in thickness and weighs 168 g. The Galaxy S III measures 136.6 mm in length, 70.6 mm in breadth and 8.6 mm in thickness. The phone weighs 133 g. The Intuition features a 5 inch HD IPS LCD display of resolution 768 * 1024 pixels. The Intuition claims that its unique 4:3 aspect ratio screen takes mobile computing to a different level. The Galaxy S III sports a Super AMOLED display of 4.8 inches and resolution of 720 * 1280 pixels. The Super AMOLED display of the S III is perfect and all its earlier faults such as the harshness of the colors have been removed.
The phones run on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The Intuition is powered by a dual core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz. The Galaxy S III has a dual core processor too having a clock speed of 1.5 GHz.
The LG Intuition comes with 32GB of internal storage space along with 1GB RAM. The S III accommodates 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB internal storages each available with 2GB RAM. The Intuition does not possess a micro SD slot for memory expansion. The S III on the other hand has a micro SD slot that can house up to 64 GB.
The phones feature 8 MP primary cameras with LED flash, geo tagging, touch focus, auto focus, face detection, etc. The S III camera can additionally record HD video and image simultaneously. The camcorders can also shoot 1080p videos at a frame rate of 30 fps. The Intuition has a 1.3 MP secondary camera while the S III owns a 1.9 MP front camera that can shoot 720p videos.
The phones have 2G, 3G and 4G networks via GSM, HSDPA and LTE connections respectively. The 4G connectivity via LTE is enabled through Verizon. GPRS and EDGE features are present in both phones. Wireless network is enabled via Wi-Fi 802.11, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, Wi-Fi hotspot, etc. Bluetooth, NFC and micro USB v2.0 constitute local area connectivity options.
There is no information about the Li-Ion battery of the Intuition. The Galaxy S III has a Li-Ion battery rated at 2100 mAh.
The Galaxy S III beats the LG Intuition fair and square. The Samsung Galaxy S III has superior specs such as better screen, more efficient processor, more memory allocation, etc. Moreover, the phone is sleek, slim and unbelievably light. The S III is definitely one of the smartest smartphones made. The LG Intuition is not bad. It comes into a different category thanks to its tablet-esque look. The large size of the Intuition makes the phone more of a phablet. So, the Intuition is more likely to face competition from the Samsung Galaxy Note, which too is a cross between a phone and a tablet rather than the Galaxy S III.
