Default BB vs LG vu (ATT)

Please Login to Remove!

got an LG vu when i switched to att.. i feel really bad about the change but im short on the green and needed a free phone...


so im comparing the two (BTW - im switching to the bold once i get more money... and htey release it on att...) but anyways, here is the comparison.


TEXT/MMS/IM

the berry comes onboard with all of these preloaded as the vu does. text/mms is easy physically, but the virtual keyboard makes things take a while to get used to. it also has a regular phone keypad which is a really nice alternative. the onboard IM clients are very simular but i fine the berry ones to be more reliable

EMAIL
now we all know that this is a no win for the vu. the clients were good on the vu, but didnt seem to run in the backround. also, IT DOESNT SUPPORT GMAIL!!!!!! what a HUGE bummer for me...

UI
the ui is fit well for both devices, so there really isnt anything to compare


BATTERY
the battery life is fantastic on the berry. its pretty good with the vu, but goes fast when you are using data services. however, the vu runs on att's 3.5G HSDPA network. the added speed will reduce the battery life alot. i cannot make an honest comparison of these two because of the network difference.

FUNCTION
i fine it very simple on the vu for just about everything. calander and such has less steps to set up... however, this also makes you lose alot of customization and stuff. also, i found how to COPY text but i cannot find for the life of me how to PASTE which is really really upsetting to me.


internet is very fast on he vu which is the oneHUGE thins the vu has over the berry



OVERALL
the bigggest thing the vu has over the berry is the 3G. other than that, everything is more business based on the berry and overall makes doing things easier.


the vu is a great phone, but the only thing i would say it has over the berry is the 3g like i already stated...

VU also heats up quite a bit especially when watching the TV
