After months of speculation, LG confirmed on Wednesday that its Optimus G Pro will be available exclusively on AT&T on May 10 for $199.99 after contract, with preorders beginning May 3. Equipped with a 5.5-inch screen, the phone marks LG's second attempt at a "phablet"-size handset in the U.S., with Verizon's LG Intuition being the first. While the Intuition didn't quite take off, the G Pro is a much better device. It performs well, and the G Pro is one of the first U.S. handsets to feature the swift Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor (the others being the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4).
Unfortunately, the phone not only has to compete with the popular Samsung Galaxy Note 2, but it will face a looming future rival in the Note 3, which presidio sport case for apple iphone x and xs - black/slate is slated for a fall unveiling, In addition, Galaxy Notes are armed with a stylus, which the G Pro lacks, Fortunately, along with having great specs, the Optimus is priced competitively enough to face its Samsung rivals, Editors' note: Because they are nearly identical devices, portions of this review have been taken from our review of the unlocked LG Optimus G Pro..
Design One of the first things I noticed about the device was how thin it was. Though this keeps it lightweight for its size (I weighed it at 6.08 ounces) and sleek, the slim 0.25-inch profile made it feel too fragile at times. As for its size, the bigger your hand is (obviously), the easier time you'll have using it with one hand. I have relatively small paws, so there were times when I'd used my thumb to tap something on one side of the screen only to have the bottom part of my thumb accidentally select and open something on the opposite side. To help with one-handed operation, LG includes some additional settings, like letting you adjust the keyboard or number pad to the left or right side.
Overall, however, I had absolutely no problem using it with two hands, and the handset is indeed attractive, I like the faux-metallic stripe that rings the edges, and unlike its global counterpart, which has the same glittery tile design seen on the Nexus 4 and the Vu II, the U.S, version has a subtle fishnetlike design on presidio sport case for apple iphone x and xs - black/slate the battery door, The phone measures 5.875 inches tall and 3 inches wide, On the left, you have a volume rocker that's situated flush and quite low on the edge -- almost right in the middle of the body, I found myself often pressing the empty space between the rocker and the QuickMemo shortcut key (which sits right above it), when trying to turn up the sound, Up top is a 3.5mm headphone jack and on the right is a sleep/power button, At the very bottom is a Micro-USB port for charging..
Of course, what's most noticeable about the G Pro is that 5.5-inch, full-HD IPS screen. It has a 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution and 400ppi. It sports a 16:9 aspect ratio, which is more standard on mobile phones than the Intuition's 4:3 ratio. As with most high-end LG devices, its screen is bright and extremely responsive. I like how the display edges are similar to the Nexus 4's, in that it contours down toward the bezel. It has a wide viewing angle, and you can see images clearly in both indoor and outdoor lighting. Colors are vibrant, icons are sharp, and text looks crisp.
