LG Electronics is using International CES 2013 to showcase smartphone user experiences.
Enhancing ease-of-use and multitasking for Android users, the fresh release of the LG proprietary Optimus UI 3.0 features QuickMemo, QSlide, Live Zoom and Dual Screen Dual Play.
QuickMemo lets users take a screenshot and add their own commentary or drawings while the QSlide function gives users the ability to text, read emails and navigate the web while watching video. Using Live Zoom, users can zoom in and out to enjoy the smallest details in a video.

Debuting for the global market at CES 2013, LG's new VuTalk feature will let users enjoy a new layer of communication by collaboratively hand-writing notes and sharing content with their contacts. VuTalk can be used either during a phone call as a way to add visuals - such as notes, images, maps and more - or as a standalone application to provide an alternative to sending email or making a call. Shared content can then be then saved in the Notebook application for access later.
