LG Optimus G Pro specs and review

 

On the other hand, the G Pro carries its size well. It's definitely overlarge (people with tiny hands, beware), but I found the G Pro surprisingly comfortable to operate. In addition to a volume rocker, the left spine of the handset features a...

LG’s Optimus G Pro is king of the small—but growing—phone/tablet hybrid market (I refuse to use the term “phablet”). It’s a performance powerhouse that, despite its large size, is relatively comfortable to use even with average-size hands. The G Pro...

LG Optimus G Pro

 

Hands-on: the 5.5-inch 1080p screen and 13MP camera impress, but build quality is suspect.

We were dazzled by the LG Optimus G Pro’s lovely screen, and intrigued by some of its oddball bits, including those we’ll never see again as they’ll most likely be lopped off before reaching the UK. However, its build left us less impressed, with the...

LG Optimus G Pro review

 

Top-end LG smartphone a stunner, but may not be UK-bound

The LG Optimus G Pro is undoubtedly an impressive handset, which should provide some serious competition for high-end phones such as the

Expert review by: Hanleigh Daniels (techsmart.co.za)

LG Optimus G Pro

 

LG makes its Optimus G Pro locally available to challenge Samsung's Galaxy Note 2 for phablet dominance. Is it good enough to knock the current king off its phablet throne?

Excellent display; great performance; LTE connectivity; latest Wi-Fi standard; plenty of added software features; great cameras and IR blaster on board.

Not the lightest or most compact smartphone on the market; not the most distinctive or eye-catching styling; and not the most up-to-date version of Android out of the retail box.

LG Optimus G Pro (E988) Review - Tech2

 

The Optimus G Pro enters the very crowded high-end segment a little late in the game. Can it hold its own?

LG Optimus G Pro (E988) Review

 

LG has had quite a bad rep when it comes to build quality of its smartphones. This issue has been persistent since the days of the Optimus Black and continues to be a problem with the current LG phones as well. The Optimus G was the last LG handset we...
