Excerpt: The LG Optimus G Pro is a thin, 0.25-inch device that fits great in your hand and comes with many useful features. This LG smartphone has an impressive battery life that will keep your device juiced up for an entire day. This phone is responsive, has a good camera and has a sharp, bright display.
Summary: To conclude, the LG G Pro Lite Dual is a good mid-range offering that packs a big display with good build, a stylus, great dual-speakers, dual-SIM support, a very useful IR blaster for your TV, and a huge battery. Another strong suit of this device is its price. Original SRP is at Php15,990 but it is now on sale for just Php13,990 with additional freebies.
Summary: The Optimus G Pro Lite is a pretty okay device and that "pretty okay" is not sufficient for me to recommend it over other phones such as the more expensive Nexus 4 or the much less expensive Xolo Q1000S, or the Nokia Lumia 720, for those not shackled to place by Android.
Pros: Good real-world performance, Powerful battery, Well priced
Cons: Disappointing specs, Poor camera, Average looks
Summary: Equipped to the teeth. LG launches a new premium smartphone dubbed Optimus G Pro E986 that features impressive equipment. The smartphone's configuration, comprised of a quad-core Snapdragon 600, an LTE module, a 5.5-inch Full HD screen and 16 GB of storage, is to give the competition the shivers.
Pros: High-quality build, SoC's performance, Bright and large Full HD screen, 16 GB of storage, LTE support, NFC module, Removable battery, The nicely comprised overall bundle. In total, the Optimus G Pro E986 is impressive in virtually every field and has really earned the label "Premium Smartphone". The installed LTE module ensures very swift browsing speeds.
Cons: Steep purchase price, Primary camera only middling for a premium device, Moderate battery runtime, The strong battery specs (3140 mAh, 11.9 Wh) only look good on paper because the Optimus G Pro E986 cannot compete with its rivals. A somewhat more efficient energy management would boost the smartphone's grade.
LG Optimus G Pro E980 AT&T 4G LTE SmartPhone Review

Summary: Overall the time I spent with the LG Optimus G Pro was a great experience. I didn’t run into any problems when using the phone, or the data plan. The feature that really made my day was the camera! It’s by far the best camera I’ve used on a smartphone so far. I’m by no means a professional photographer, and everything I tried to capture worked great. It was even able to catch pictures of my kid who never wants to sit still long enough for a photo!
Excerpt: Remember when mobile phones looked like military-grade tools and required satchel-sized battery cases? It’s easy to scoff at them now, but Android handset makers seem hellbent on returning us to those days, or at least the updated equivalent. The giant phones on the market may not also require the massive briefcase, but clearly Samsung, LG and others think bigger is better.
LG Optimus G Pro review: a flagship by any other name
26 July 2013
Excerpt: 2013 is the year of the Full HD smartphones. We've seen high-end phones such as the Sony Xperia Z, the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4. We had to wait a bit longer on LG's Optimus G Pro. We tested the Korean version, which is slightly different than the European one.
Summary: If youï¿½re looking for a smartphone with a larger display than what the flagships offer, then the LG Optimus G Pro is the phone you should buy. On itï¿½s own too, the LG Optimus G Pro is a quality product and a very good buy. If you were considering the Optimus as your next buy, go for it. However, when put in the company of the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4 and taking into account its current price-tag, the LG Optimus G Pro comes in third.
Pros: Excellent screen quality, Packed with a truckload of features, Great performance and usability, Very good for video recording, Powerful battery
Cons: May be too large for some users, Sub-par low-light photography, UI needs to look better
