The LG Optimus G Pro is now available for pre-order from AT&T for $199 on contract. We’ve already looked at how the massive phone fares against similarly priced devices available on AT&T, and now it’s time to see what you, our readers, make of the Optimus G Pro.
The LG Optimus G Pro is expected to be delivered to those who pre-ordered on May 10, the same date when the device will become available in stores. “A beast of a phone”, as our Joshua Vergara calls it in his review of the device, the Optimus G Pro is the best device that LG has to offer at this moment.
The G Pro has a 5.5 inch Full HD display with a pixel density of 401 ppi, and runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean powered by a 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, coupled with 2GB of RAM memory. The internal storage is 32GB, and you can add up to 64GB using a microSD card.
The main camera is a 13 megapixel (which delivers great images, as you can see in the examples in our review), while the front one offers 2.1 megapixels. The 3140 mAh battery is removable.

Offers a nice HD 5.5″ 1080p screen, 32GB of storge, its on JB 4.1.2 (should be on 4.2.x but it will get the upgrade) and its not bogged down by a UI/UX that eats up tons of resources. Minimal bloatware with only 2 AT&T apps on the device and none really by LG. One thing I would have liked to see is the volume button up higher and the quote note (programmable) button in the middle. Volume control is more key. I give it a 9/10. The only negative is
You lost me at AT&T. Carrier exclusive is not a model for success. If they want to be a major player, why the drawing back? For most, being on AT&T makes it an automatic fail, or knock-out.
They likely got paid a bunch of cash by AT&T, know that Verizon would want to change the name, redesign the device and put no marketing behind it. T-Mo is a mess with the Metro PCS merger and Sprint well they don’t get squat.
It was also likely easier to tweak this device for AT&T then it was to redo it for CDMA or add T-Mo frequencies.
I’d rather have it on have it on at&t than verizon and thier bloatware heavy craptastic droids, or tmobile and thier shit for service and 2mps down network lol. Tmobile on the other hand I would consider.
