If you are on Verizon and are waiting for the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 you may be peeved to here the latest word. Rumor has it that Verizon have chosen not to have the Galaxy Note 2 and instead have gone for the LG Intuition. Recently the Note 2 showed up on benchmark sites in both AT&T and T-Mobile variants.
No Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 2 coming (rumor)
Anyone who wants to get their hands on a phablet have two great choices with the Intuition and the Note 2. But the question is, have Verizon made the correct choice in going for the Intuition as opposed to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2? Let’s have a look at the specs to answer that.
The Note 2 features a large 5.55 inch display of Super AMOLED and 1280 x 720 with 265ppi and a ratio of 16:9. The Intuition comes with a 5 inch IPS LCD display of 1280 x 720 with 294ppi and a 4:3 ratio.
The LG Intuition is run on the Snapdragon dual core S4 1.5GHz processor and many have compared it to the Galaxy S3 from Samsung. The Galaxy Note 2 will have a quad core processor, the Cortex A9 1.6GHz. This will mean both of the phablets are very powerful.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 comes with the S Pen and this is from Wacom while the LG has the Rubberdium Pen. The S Pen has many new features and has been redesigned over the original. It has gotten great reviews when used with the Note 10.1. As the Intuition will not have the same options as the stylus on the Note 2, the Note 2 will come out on top.
If you want to get your hands on the Verizon LG Intuition you will have to wait until 6th September and it will set you back around $199.99. The Note 2 will be out later this year and as yet there is no price.
Verizon may find out that they have made a huge mistake by not having the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 on-board. They did the same with the Galaxy S2 last year. Nevertheless, there are rumors of a HTC phablet coming along as well, which hopefully beats can better match the Galaxy Note 2 than the 4:3 LG phablet.
