The LG Optimus G Pro is a giant of a phone that, spec for spec, looks like a better buy than most of its massive competitors. Steve Kovach from Business Insider agrees, calling this smartphone one of “the Best Giant-Screen Android Phone You Can Buy.”
It has a faster processor, a better and bigger camera sensor, a sharper display, an infrared sensor, a larger battery and a much longer uptime. The G Pro also showcases some innovative features such as the dual camera mode, a time catch shot and the multi window view.
So should you buy it? It's certainly compelling. Like Android Community’s Cory Gunther says, “Considering it competes or tops the Note II, has specs and features that compare with the new GALAXY S 4, yet only costs $199 for the 32GB model, this is a great buy.”
Ultimately this one comes down to wether or not you can live with the experimentally massive form factor.
The Good: Power and specs that outmatch any previous offering, new and innovative features.
The Bad: It's MASSIVE - more tablet than phone.

LG Optimus G had been well received by the consumers and to improve upon it LG had some time back launched the Optimus G Pro. The G Pro is not just an incremental upgrade to Optimus G; it is new device with a larger display screen, new design and latest hardware and software.

The LG Optimus G Pro is one of the best big screen phones available at this point in time. Leaving minor niggles, the phone offers a combination of good build, great software features and high-end hardware under the hood. However, it faces tough competition from flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S4...

The LG Optimus G Pro is a power packed handset with some very interesting software additions. With a top notch display, decent camera and top of the line specifications it is definitely worth considering if you’re in the market for a new high end phone. The uninspiring design and the not so a...
