Optimus Vu - Battery Test

9/6/2012 9:24:43 AM

Not as impressive as its rival, Galaxy Note, Optimus Vu is also an LG Android smartphone having fine runtime.

Optimus Vu is LG’s Android smartphone that has the biggest monitor (5inch). Though, unlike Samsung Galaxy Note, Optimus Vu owns a square design with a screen size of 4:3 instead of 16:9 which is familiar with other Android ones. To prevent much energy consumed, LG has equipped this model with a 2,080mAh battery.

As usual, our battery test went through 3 rounds. In talk time test, this 5-inch model of LG can handle within up to 8 hours via 3G. The result was not bad but not as fascinating as that of Galaxy Note with stronger battery (2,500mAh).

Web browsing is one of the target features on Optimus Vu when the manufacturer uses a 4:3 screen (instead of 16:9). However, the 5inch HD-IPS LCD panel (768x1,024) is considerably energy-consuming no less than other AMOLED rivals.

This model was able to browse webs continuously via Wi-Fi connection within 4 hours and 49 minutes. The result was higher than that of most LG smartphones but still at average level.

In the final test on video playback, this phone could handle within more than 6 hours consecutively. It continued to lie in the middle rank with an average battery lifetime. Nonetheless, with the 4:3 monitor, playing movies is not an upside of LG Optimus Vu, including experience as well as battery runtime.

In general, if we use the phone to call via 3G, browse webs with Wi-Fi and play movies in each one hour per day, the 2,000mAh battery of Optimus Vu could give a 37 hour runtime. According to us, this smartphone consumes a lot of energy in standby mode when Wi-Fi connection and synchronization mode are switched on.
