The Optimus G Pro has a massive 5.5inch screen with a gigantic resolution that puts it at par with the likes of Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5, it leaves nothing to chance considering latest palm wrecking phablet arrivals such as the Galaxy Mega which disappoints on pixel density. It doesn’t end there, at its back is an awesome 13.0 Megapixels snapper that’ll comfortably record full HD videos with some interesting camera software additions; it’s the kind of gadget you’d use as a digital camera’s better option. LG has been in the game for quite a while now but we’ve often been put-off by its less impressive screen resolution smart phones, the Optimus G Pro could just be the much needed game-changer to go head-to-head with Samsung’s and Apple’s latest top range devices, its undoubtedly potentially searingly powerful smart phone you’d better shortlist.
Call it an epic battle or a tit-for-tat struggle, all we can imagine is a comprehensive variety of phablets you’d consider before settling on one, we’d care less as to when these phablets are unveiled – whether the Optimus G Pro came as a result of Samsung’s widely successful Galaxy Note’s series or merely as LG’s most hopeful flagship contender in the top-range genre. The 5inch monster replaces its recent sibling- the Optimus G with several improvements beyond the screen size and resolution; underneath is a nappy 1.7GHz quad-core processor, it may not be within the limits of Galaxy S4 but still better than most rivals. Whether big is better – it’s entirely upon you, I’d imagine receiving a phone call on a slightly over 5inch gadget or carrying it around could be an issue to some, however, it comes in handy on several occasions such as browsing web-pages, watching videos and TV shows, playing games and keying in those chat messages.
The design isn’t substantially different from the rest of LG’s smart phones beyond what I’d say large, the front panel has a 5.5 inch screen taking most of it except for LG’s typical logo at the top and capacitive buttons below. On the back cover is an impressive 13.0 megapixels primary snapper and an LED flash closely below it, the power and volume buttons are carefully placed on the side of the phone instead of traditionally used to top-side making them easily accessible. Inside is a 2GB RAM same as that found on Galaxy S3 and 32GB of memory, it has Android v4.1.2 Jelly Bean operating system installed and an even bigger 3140 Li-Po battery than that of Galaxy S3. The card slot allows beefing-up storage with an external MicroSD card of up to 64GB. LG Optimus G Pro is shipped with additional software onboard such as ‘Qlide apps’ – widgets that appear on top of your current app to let you see calendar, take notes or watch a video – you can text at the same time watch a video right on this device.
