As part of the Verizon Wireless Midwest Savvy Moms we get the chance to review two devices. The first was the Samsung Galaxy S3 which has been amazing and now we’ve received our second device which I’m very excited about – the LG Intuition.
The Intuition is considered a phablet which is the combination of a smartphone and tablet. It’s much larger than a typical smartphone but smaller than a tablet. Here you can see it next to Dave’s iPhone 4s to get an idea of its size.
One of my favorite features is the 5 inch screen. It’s large, crisp, clear and easy to read. I love using it for Pinterest. The two columns are much larger on the Intuition than a typical smartphone and it’s so easy to see details and descriptions.
The size of the Intuition makes it a great crossover e-reader. It’s actually only one inch smaller than most standard e-ink e-readers. I made a video to better showcase these features so you can get a good idea of it’s size and display:
As I mentioned in the video I also like that the size makes using the on-screen keyboard a breeze. The keys are large and easy to click. They’re a nice size in portrait and even larger in landscape.
I also have beenreally enjoying the Verizon 4G LTE service. It’s quick and speedy and the service has been great here in my area of Cleveland. And the hotspot has allowed me to stay connected in places I normally wouldn’t have a signal like at Kora & Logan’s gymnastics classes. The gyms don’t offer WiFi so it’s so convenient and helpful to still be able to connect to 4G LTE and then turn on the hotspot and connect my laptop which allows me to blog while the kids are in class. When Kora’s class lasted 3 hours at a time I can’t tell you how thankful I was for the hotspot!
I’ve been very pleased so far with the LG Intuition and look forward to learning more about it in the coming weeks. I’ll be sure to share with you more of my favorite features on Twitter, Facebook, and in upcoming blog posts.
Let me know if you have any questions about the Intuition or phablets and I’ll be happy to do my best to answer them.
