It’s been sometimes since we heard from LG when it comes to a smartphone.  That said, the company hasn’t released a groundbreaking handset much like Samsung, though their latest, the Intuition, isn’t looking too shabby.

At the center of this device is a rather large, and perhaps not pocket comfortable 5-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1,204×768. Nevertheless, it should provide a rather compelling experience when viewing photos and movies, though Samsung’s Note (I and II) outshines it in the resolution department.  And much like the Note, the Intuition will ship with its own stylus, though there isn’t a carrying slot, so you’ll have to lug it around in your pocket along with your keys, lighter, and other debris.  A 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM power this devices Android 4.0 OS, while an 8-megapixel shooter (1.3MP on the front) captures full HD video.  The handset will ship with 2 NFC stickers, allowing you to instantly change the phone’s settings by tapping the two together.  Convenient if you’re constantly changing your ringtone to silent, or do want to be disturbed at certain times of the day.  Other features include Bluetooth 3.0, DLNA compatibility, a variety of preloaded apps including Amazon’s Kindle, WiFi, GPS, and some business ready data encryption tech.

The LG Intuition will hit Verizon’s website and stores on September 6th and 10th respectively.  Sign a 2-year contract and it’s yours for $200.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
