Review LG Optimus G Pro E986 Smartphone

Notebookcheck
26 September 2013
  • 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". ...
  • 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 smartp...

  • Summary: As a manufacturer of smartphones, LG has sometimes struggled to make their devices both exciting and good looking. There have been fast but boring LG phones, and good-looking but underpowered LG phones, but very few which have managed both power and looks.

LG Optimus G Pro Review

Digitaltrends
1 August 2013
  • Conclusion: A few years ago, LG phones weren’t all that desirable. And though it’s still chasing major rival Samsung in many ways, the Optimus G Pro is a major step forward. It’s well designed, comfortable, speedy, and boasts a fantastic display.

Review: LG Optimus G Pro

Wired
30 July 2013
  • 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.
  • Pros: Awesome, huge screen. Good battery life. A nice set of widgets that make it possible to multitask with ease. The price is right.
  • Cons: Camera can’t compete with the best. Sub-par AT&T apps. Too big for easy one-handed operation — if you don’t want a big phone, this is not the phone for you.

  • 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.
  • 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.

3 May 2013
  • Summary: Our biggest issue with the Optimus G Pro is that the U.S. version is stripped of some of our favorite features found on the international version, such as additional QSlide options.

27 March 2013
  • Excerpt: 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.
  • 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

LAPTOP Magazine
26 March 2013
  • Summary: Those who want a smaller handset might want to consider the HTC One, which has a better screen, more premium design and takes brighter photos. However, the One lacks the Optimus G Pro's removable battery and exciting suite of custom apps.

5 March 2013
  • Conclusion: LG is taking a sizeable risk by putting stellar specs in a 5.5-incher – despite that the phone is surprisingly compact and light for such a screen size, thanks to the minimum bezel, it still feels a bit unwieldy for anything but a Shaq-sized hand, though less so than the Note II with the same screen...
  • Pros: Very light and compact for the screen size, Large 3140 mAh battery, Flexible design lets you add memory or swap the battery, Programmable QButton and an IR blaster allow more usage scenarios, Good camera with HDR video abilities
  • Cons: Too large for comfortable one-handed operation, Hollow voice quality in the earpiece, Finicky auto-brightness adjustments
