First impressions and hands-on with the new LG Optimus G Pro
My colleagues Darcy LaCouvee and Joshua Vergara have been hard at work trawling the halls of MWC 2013 for the hottest pieces of mobile technology, and they might have just found it in the form of the LG Optimus G Pro.
We had the opportunity to play with the LG Optimus G Pro, and we have to say, we came out pretty impressed. The Optimus G Pro offers what is probably the best display on any mobile device, with 5.5 inches of full HD goodness, translating into a remarkable 401ppi. The super crisp panel is a pleasure to look at, and the Optimus G Pro has the muscle to push all those pixels, thanks to the brand new Snapdragon 600 processor, clocked at 1.7GHz.
Design-wise, the Optimus G Pro is a very sleek looking device. Coming in black and white, the G Pro is slightly narrower and lighter than the Galaxy Note 2, which makes it easy to pocket and to use in general. The back of the device features the same holographic pattern we’ve seen on the Nexus 4 and the LG Optimus G. Underneath the removable back cover, you’ll find a beefy 3140 mAh battery, meaning you’ll have little trouble getting through a full day of full use with the Optimus G Pro.
Stay tuned for more coverage. We’ve pitted the Optimus G Pro against the Note 2 and other hot devices. Videos coming soon!
