LG Optimus G Pro Quick Preview


It all started with the electronic giants – Apple and Samsung, but now, it’s LG to join the club. Well, it’s no more just the Apple iPhone series or the Samsung Galaxy series, the only larger screen smartphones available in the market. Yes, it’s now the LG Optimus G Pro, the new flagship device from the Korean electronics giant to hit the stores. LG Optimus G Pro, the most impressive and stylish device with cutting edge technology seems to be a serious contender to Galaxy Note II. And now, it’s time to lay our hands on the interesting features of the newest phablet.

Slim and Sleek with Flawless Clarity
If there is one thing that makes the phablet stand out of the crowd, then it’s the device’s design. It’s just so thin, sleek and most attractive. LG Optimus G Pro is equipped with a 5.5-inch HD display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, delivering an eye-popping 400ppi. In the sense, almost everything on the phablet screen comes alive. With Optimus G Pro, you get to watch clear and distortion-free content with sharp images in natural color. The LG Optimus G Pro supports multi-touch functionality and weighs around 160 g (5.64 oz), as its all-plastic with no metals. In short, it’s a device that you just shouldn’t miss. And, with the very first glance at the device, you would feel – ‘It’s exactly what we have been waiting for!’

Similar to the Note II, LG Optimus G Pro has 3 buttons – Back, Home and Menu. Then there’s the volume toggle on the right side, a button on the left edge dedicated for the TV remote app and the screen lock button on the right edge. Moving on to the Pro’s screen, like the other high-end LG smartphones, the screen is bright and extremely responsive sporting 16:9 aspect ratio. The display edges contours down toward the slim bezel, giving the glitter tile design of LG Optimus G Pro an even more impressive look.

Seamless Performance
LG Optimus G Pro is packed with a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, 3140mAh battery and 2GB of RAM. The new phablet runs on the latest Android 4.1.2 version of Jelly Bean, more like the other recent launches. What’s more interesting in LG Optimus G Pro is that the infrared port that sits up top. Well, this can be the mark of the comeback of the infrared technology.

With the Snapdragon quad-core processor, you get lightning fast 4G/LTE connectivity that make the device far ahead of the rest smartphones. Then, the 3140mAh battery is just the perfect for power users with more than 10 hours of life span. And, with the 2GB of RAM, you get to experience a smooth performance for almost all the apps available. While it’s true that the device runs on Jelly Bean, it’s great that the device apart from apps from Google is also loaded with tons of LG’s applications.

What else to expect?
LG Optimus G pro boasts a 13MP rear camera with a single LED flash and a 2.1MP front-facing camera. While, the rear shooter allows Virtual Reality (VR) Panorama (a 360-degree view panoramic shoot) created by stitching numerous panoramic photos into a sphere, the front-facing HD camera allows dual recording. Furthermore, the device also offers custom interface features like QSlide, Live Zooming, QuickMemo and other features like Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC, wireless charging and Bluetooth.

When it comes to the interface features, QuickMemo lets you capture any image, make a note on it with your finger and share it with your friends via social networking sites or emails or text messages. And the feature QSlide lets you play while you work or work while you play. That’s more like you can work on two different applications simultaneously.

The Verdict
Needless to say, LG Optimus G Pro is the most elegant and powerful device launched till date in the phablet market. But, experts still wonder if the device is a hit or a miss, since the determining factors – price and the availability is not yet clear. Well, with the early reviews, LG Optimus G Pro has proved to be a pretty impressive phablet offering the best in the world of technology. To put it across differently, LG Optimus G Pro, the lightest and the fastest phablet with flawless clarity providing seamless performance can be the perfect rival for Samsung Galaxy Note II and also the perfect choice for you and me.

    Very nice LARGE SMARTPHONE that’s all this really is. I applaud LG if you have to copy something you copy the creators Samsung everyone is trying to catch up to Samsung overall. The Galaxy Note 2 is in a league of it’s own nothing compares the Galaxy Note 2 is the BEST ultimate all purpose productivity device ever made since the inception of android. I can only imagine what the Galaxy Note 3 will be like.

      “if you have to copy something you copy the creators” Samsung was hardly the “creators” of the phablet category, they just popularized it. Look no further than the Dell Streak 5 for that title. A 5 inch Android smartphone available a whole year before the original Note. Idiot.

      Seriously?? The only thing I don’t care too much about is the the bezel around the camera I have never been a fan of the circle around the camera design style. This looks a hell of a lot better than that fugly HTC One though.
