LG OPTIMUS G PRO
The design of the Optimus G Pro closely follows its 4.7-inch sibling, the Optimus G. Clad in glossy plastic, the Optimus G Pro comes with a bevy of rounded corners, and a reflective back cover.
LG appears to place great emphasis on the Optimus G Pro’s 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display; text and images looked super-sharp thanks to an incredible screen density of 400 ppi. The display itself looked fantastic thanks to an ultra-thin 3.65mm bezel.
Running under the hood are flagship-worthy specifications: A Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core 1.7GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean keeps the user experience nice and fluid. Loaded on the Optimus G Pro is LG’s latest version of its Optimus interface, which has a number of useful (and unique) features. For example, you can set a shortcut to any app installed on the phone via Q Button, which will
“TEXT AND IMAGES LOOKED SUPER-SHARP THANKS TO AN INCREDIBLE SCREEN DENSITY
OF 400 PPI.”
allow you to jump straight into the app from the lock screen, or any page, simply by pressing and holding it.
Like Samsung’s Smart Stay and Pause, LG also has its own Smart Screen and Video where the front-facing camera is used to determine whether you are looking at the display. It will then decide whether to dim the screen, or pause the video. Like the Huawei Ascend Mate, it also boasts a one-handed operation mode.
The Optimus G Pro has internal storage capacity of 16GB and a micro-SD card slot that supports memory cards up to 64GB. The micro-SD and micro-SIM slots are located below the removable 3,140mAh battery.
