Why would you want a 4:3 smartphone or tablet?

I'm thinking in particular of the 4:3 LG Optimus Vu. Strange design?

I think 4:3 is too wide for a phone tbh, but then any 5"+ phone is too big anyway....

I think some smaller phones - 3.5in - could benefit from 4:3. Often typing in landscape mode doesn't leave much space above the keyboard... Most noticably on the N8 LOL It was practically all keyboard.

Or maybe just thinner keyboard, else you end up with same complaint to a degree in more usual portrait orientation?
Besides when you get a 3.5" phone in 4:3 it'll end up about as wide as a 4" phone in 16:9 (c2" screen width), so I'd rather take the 4"....
