LG has mounted some serious attacks on the smartphone market with the launch of some promising phones. LG Vu 3 is its latest additions.
OS: Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
Display: 5.2” IPS LCD, with 1280-by960 pixel resolution
Camera: 13 MP rear camera with autofocus and LED flash; 2.1 MP secondary camera
Memory: 2 GB RAM
Processor: 2.3 GHz Quad-core processor
A lot of the design philosophy has been derived from its predecessor LG Optimus Vu 2. It still keeps a 4:3 aspect ratio display, which makes the phone seem like an odd tablet. It has an all-plastic design but the size and the overall finishing exudes a premium feeling.
Vu 3 comes with a 5.2 inch True HD IPS LCD, with a resolution of 960-by-1280 pixels offering a pixel density of 308 ppi which is right in the court of a Retina Display. A display of this caliber does what it is made for– bring life-like experience. The only oddity is the 4:3 aspect ratio, which doesn’t let the HD videos utilize the whole of the screen.
Processor and Memory
LG Vu 3 comes with a blazing fast 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro and runs on Adreno 330 for graphics. These run, along with 2 GB of RAM and Vu 3 has 16 GB internal storage. The combination of a fast CPU and a large RAM makes Vu 3’s performance very fluid.
Vu 3 comes with a 13 MP rear camera, with autofocus and LED flash. There’s also the inclusion of HDR, which takes images with enhanced contrast gradient. Then there’s the 2.1 MP front facing camera. The rear camera can record videos at 1080p full HD, with HDR. Vu 3 is this well-endowed when it comes to the camera suite.
Connectivity and other features
4G LTE is an important addition to the latest Vu. Then there’s the WiFi and Bluetooth of connectivity. Vu 3 comes preloaded with Android Jelly Bean 4.2 and along with that many other apps and features from LG itself. You have the popular KnockOn for which you just have to tap the screen twice to put the phone on standby or wake it up. There’s a built-in stylus, and many drawing and writing apps along with hordes of other nifty features like being able to use it like remote controller.
