Summary: The LG G Pro 2 is a very good option for anyone looking to buy a large screen high-end/premium Android phone. The G Pro 2 offers a good feature set, impressive performance and a very aggresive price tag. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has some serious competition and Note 3 aspirers should give the G Pro 2 a hard look before deciding on which large screen Android smartphone to buy.
Pros: Great camera performance with OIS, Slim bezels, GPU performs great with high end games, Hardware keys at the back are quite useful
Cons: UI seems too busy, Logs low numbers in synthetic benchmarks
Summary: At the end of our time with the LG G Pro 2, we can say that the company is going on the right track, but the Pro series may still need some work. The G Pro 2 is an amazing smartphone, no doubt about it, but after using it as a my personal phone for a couple of days, I’m 100% sure I don’t want a phone this big. Maybe I can learn to want it, but for now, the size isn’t justified.
LG G Pro 2 Review: Is LG’s Newest Phablet Worth It?
1 May 2014
Excerpt: Full review of the LG G Pro 2! LG’s G Pro 2 is an interesting proposition. It’s quite obviously the most expensive device in LG’s current Android lineup (at least until the G3 rolls around) and is the biggest in terms of size.
LG G Pro 2 Hands-On, First Impressions: Fantabulous Phablet
16 April 2014
Excerpt: We get some quality time with the LG G Pro 2! A few days ago LG officially launched their newest phablet, the G Pro 2 here in the Philippines. While we’ve managed to get a review unit of the G2 Mini early, the G Pro 2 eluded us for quite a bit until we finally […]
Summary: When iteration is the name of the game, it's easy to overlook the improvements that smartphone makers do introduce every year. The G Pro 2 is certainly an improvement over its predecessor — the design is much nicer, the battery lasts longer, and the display is even bigger without adding much to the phone's footprint.
Pros: Great display, Great battery life, Improved design
Cons: Rear buttons are awkward, Software is overbearing, Camera is unimpressive
Conclusion: We very much enjoyed using the G Pro 2, and though we’ll likely go back to a smaller-screened phone after the review period is over, it’s a great device. It doesn’t have the S Pen stylus of the Note 3, but stacks up to Samsung’s flagship phone in every other way. Thanks to its KnockOn unlocking and rear power/volume button placement, it’s more comfortable to hold than the Note as well. We still prefer the G Flex if we had to choose a phablet to carry around, though.
Pros: Powerful processor, Gorgeous screen, KnockOn feature works well, Comfortable to hold for a phablet, MicroSD support, Good camera
Cons: It’s still massive, Not waterproof or extra durable, Price tag unknown, Lacks a stylus, No standout reason to choose it
Excerpt: At Mobile World Congress, LG was demonstrating the G Pro 2, its latest large-display smartphone (aka “phablet”) that represent its tip of the spear for this category for some time, possibly until the next G Flex comes out.
Conclusion: LG has taken a great device in the LG G2 and has blown it up to a much larger size in the LG G Pro 2. Again, this isn’t so much a follow-up to last year’s LG G Pro, but a compliment to the LG G2 instead. Working with one of the finest processors on the market and a display that’s both sharp and bright in essentially any environment, there’s little to dislike about this handset.
