MWC 2012 – LG Optimus Vu vs Samsung Galaxy Note hands on review
LG Optimus Vu vs Samsung Galaxy Note – design and build
Measuring in at 8.5mm thick, the LG Optimus Vu is around 1mm thinner than the Galaxy Note's 9.7mm shell, but it's also wider and nearly as tall as its Samsung rival. Thankfully the Optimus Vu is deceptively light for its size and you can feel the difference between both phones when picking them up as the Galaxy Note is 10g heavier at 178g.
Neither phone's rear plastic panels scream out 'premium quality' like, for example, the iPhone 4S' glass back, but that's not to say that the textured rough cross-hatch backing of the LG Optimus Vu is offensive to the senses either.
