With the announcement of Optimus Vu,LG has stepped forward for the head-to-head competition against one of the major smartphone manufacturer,Samsung. With its Galaxy Note,Samsung was the first to launch a smartphone featuring 5.3″ tablet-like display but now LG is soon to launch its Optimus Vu, a 5″ IPS display smartphone. Though both of the smartphones fall in the almost same genre but specification wise have a lot of difference. Samsung Galaxy Note and LG Optimus Vu both feature Dual-core processors and 1 GB of RAM but the GPU embedded in them are different as Galaxy Note feature much more powerful Mali 400 GPU in comparison to the Adreno 220 GPU of LG Optimus Vu. It will be interesting to see whether LG Optimus Vu will be able to compete with Samsung Galaxy Note with its odd-looking 5″ display.
Samsung Galaxy Note features 5.3″ Super Amoled Capacitive touchscreen whereas LG Optimus Vu comes packed with 5″ IPS display. The Galaxy Note delivers much better viewing experience because of its crispy 800×1280 pixels (285 ppi pixel density) resolution against the 1024×768 pixels(256 ppi pixel density) resolution of LG Optimus Vu. Also the 4:3 ratio of LG Optimus Vu makes it wider than Galaxy Note thus making it more difficult to handle. Samsung Galaxy Note is powered with 1.4 GHz Dual-Core ARM cortex A9 processor,1GB RAM and Mali 400 GPU,whereas LG Optimus Vu is powered with 1.5 GHz Dual-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8660 processor,1 GB RAM and Adreno 220 GPU. With the above configuration,Samsung Galaxy Note leaps ahead of Optimus Vu with respect to the performance. Samsung Galaxy Note is bundled with 8 MP rear camera and 2 MP front camera whereas LG Optimus Vu comes with 8 MP camera with features like auto-focus,LED flash and 1.3 MP front camera. Both the smartphone comes packed with Gingerbread 2.3 OS and feature ultra-fast LTE network but regarding battery Samsung Galaxy Note has 2500 mAh battery and LG Optimus Vu has 2050 mAh battery. With such differences,it will be real hard on LG’s part to compete with Samsung Galaxy Note but lets see what is the reaction of the consumers.
