With the price drop recently to about USD 400 its a good buy. Battery last about 6 hrs with average use. Screen is good, very responsive while texting or writing memos. Many complain about its odd shape and indicate that its not convenient for telephony like calling. Agreed, but of 6 hrs of daily use maybe we might speak for max 1 hour. Rest of the time we browse, text and play multimedia files. It wont let you down with size when you get used to VU. Camera though is not so good. I expected much better quality camera. On speed of use, its extremely fast. Even emailing, browsing, chatting etc work like breeze and I found it much faster communicating with Optimus VU than Galaxy Grand which is also 5". Overall its not the best device but its well worth having it at a lowered present price.
Just now I brought my new LG Vu P895, thats awful to see the battery drain issue..
No SIM inserted, mobile in flight mode, WiFi turned-off, all necessary things turned off and I kept the mobile a side for 2hrs.
I wonder how come the battery drain by 10%. Unlike other phones consumes 1% max in flight mode for appx 2hrs.
I'm scared that if I start using phone and 3G as well... battery drains like leaking water bottle.. pls advice wht to do...
i m using optimas vu from last 5 months its very very nice phone if u use this phone guaranteed and dam sure u love LG i dont have words really its one of the best mobile in the world
thanks LG I M very happy and satisfied and thanks for winning my confidence

i-mody, 16 Mar 2013i dud what u said . but the battery keep draining like a blackhole sucking light
but over ... moreHi i-mody,
I agree, the battery drain issue observed in both LG 4X HD and LG Vu P895 models... Due to quad core, they are power hungry.. kills battery a lot. (max use is 3-4hrs from 100%-0% battery)
What about your front camera... how about the quality in video calling... The front camera is also observed as poor for my case.. Its completely dark, though u use proper light source to en-light your face still the quality is awful.
I bought this mobile a week ago...to be true value for money...supports high end games like a pro...played dead trigger on ultra high settings and it run as smooth as butter...sound is awesome...forget beats audio....

Great piece of art, sexy with its real-time performance powered with the quad core processor, I'd praise this fellow with all my heart.
