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: LG and Samsung are in the midst of a battle. An epic back-and-forth. A billions-of-dollars tit-for-tat. The two Korean conglomerates, part of the chaebol system that dominates commerce and politics in their home country, are immensely and constantly competitive. Samsung releases a flagship phone; LG always answers with one of its own. Both companies announced " the world's first curved OLED TV " at CES, within only minutes of each other.
Pros: Big, beautiful display, Excellent performance, Some smart software for the big screen
Cons: Big and cumbersome, Poor speakers, Some ugly software enhancements
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.
LG Optimus G Pro Review (AT&T) - Big, blue, and blazingly fast
17 May 2013
Excerpt: Smartphones routinely have 5-inch screens and larger bodies, and the LG Optimus G Pro is a grand device that makes quite an impression. Is this yet another trailing device, or has LG managed to make this new phone for AT&T standout for more than its size?
Conclusion: The LG Optimus G Pro has everything a super-phone should, except Samsung and Apple's glorious reputations and marketing budgets. In fact, I do wonder if this Android smartphone will get all the respect it deserves. It's LG's best Android phone to date, and we're impressed at the rapid progress they show here in both hardware and software. Yes, it could look more chic and elegant, but one could easily say the same of other Android phones.
Pros: Huge IPS full HD display, very fast CPU and GPU, very good camera.
Cons: Though narrow, it's still a handful for those with small hands.
Conclusion: The LG Optimus G Pro is a rather fine piece of machinery. It's offers you an alternative to the HTC One and/or Samsung GALAXY S 4 here up on the top tier with its similar display (larger, though again, with the same amount of pixels), identical processor, and surprisingly similar set of features. It also offers you a unique hardware build and a camera that'll go very nearly toe-to-toe with the leaders.
Summary: The Optimus G Pro is a big-screen beast of a smartphone with a boatload of features that will make power users quite happy. Its 5.5-inch 1080p display offers a bright and colorful picture, and we appreciate camera features such as Dual Recording and Time Machine. And while its benchmark results were a bit lower than Samsung's Galaxy S4 and HTC's One, the Optimus G Pro still offers smooth quad-core performance.
Pros: Large crisp HD display, QSlide apps make multitasking a breeze, Robust camera features, Can be used as TV Remote
Cons: Missing features from international version, Difficult to use with one hand, Remote app lacks program guide, No bundled pen for Note apps
