With so many great options available, it’s always a difficult choice to make, when picking you’re next smartphone. More so in the US, considering the fact that this will likely be your primary device for the next 2 years. Even with T-Mobile, regardless of the fact that there aren’t any contracts, if you choose a smartphone with the monthly payment plans, it takes 24 months to pay off the device. With the LG Optimus G Pro joining the already amazing lineup of high-end smartphones offered by AT&T, we decided to do a quick comparison, to help make the decision easier for you.
With so many devices in the running, the best way to find out any differences is a comparison table, which you can find below (All prices mentioned require a 2-year contract, with qualifying voice and data plans) -
The $299.99 price tag of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and the very surprising $199.99 cost of the Galaxy Note is a clear indication smartphones with a display greater than 5-inches is still considered a niche category. It looks like AT&T is banking on the fact that if you want a smartphone with a larger display, you’ll go for it regardless of the cost, even with newer, and better specced, smartphones now available at the same, or a cheaper, price.
While comparing the various factors considered by consumers before choosing a smartphone, the LG Optimus G Pro comes out ahead more often than not. Here’s my take -
Granted, it’s not only about specifications, but what features it has. The Samsung Galaxy S4 is packed with features, and the HTC One takes a more minimalist path, which is preferred by some. Check out our hands-on review of the LG Optimus G Pro to see what the device has to offer -
To answer the original question, the LG Optimus G Pro is definitely a great choice for its price point, especially if you’re looking for a smartphone with a larger-than-5-inch display. If you’re interested, don’t forget the Optimus G Pro will go up for pre-order from tomorrow, May 3, and will be available online and from AT&T stores around the country from May 10.
