LG is not leaving the competition in the android smartphone market and now it has came up with a high end elegant looking android smartphone known as Optimus G Pro. The smartphone is really having lots of high end features and the display is even larger than to be fit into the Phablet category.
Here is the first preview or you can call it a review also of the device. I am writing here my personal review about the device that will help you know better about it.
The design of the device doesn’t have any new thing. I personally liked the back of the device more than the front side. LG has provided the back panel with a new kind of element that gives a fresh feel. Talking about the front, it looks simple but not unique. All the Samsung devices looks identical so the device will not give you feel that you are having a uniquely design smartphone. There is a single home button (identical to iPhone and many of the android devices) in front and a camera with flash at back.
To keep the smartphone a high end device, LG has provided a quad core processor with it. It has Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with clock speed of 1.7GHz which also has dedicated GPU to enhance graphics performance. It has got 2GB of RAM inside with 32GB of internal storage. The performance of the device is great due to the four cores that enhance the multi tasking as well. It has got an extra slot for expanding its memory up to 64GB using the microSD card.
The 5.5 inch giant display keeps this smartphone above in the list of Phablet devices. It has 5.5 inch true HD display with full HD resolution of 1080×1920 pixels. LG has also increased the pixel density and it has 401 ppi density that sounds awesome. The display looks gorgeous and you will love to see your content on it.
Here I don’t like one thing about the device that is it comes with Jelly Bean 4.1.2 OS. LG should have provided it with Jelly Bean 4.2 which is the newer version and it has lots of fresh apps that are not available in the version of OS the device is kept with. The version of Jelly Bean it has works superb and apps looks very fluent while using. Overall you will find the device OS almost same as of a similar Samsung device.
At rear it has fixed with a 13MP camera that is capable of recording full HD videos at 30fps ratings. The camera is assisted with LED flash light as well in order to view things clear in low light conditions. At front it has 2.1MP camera that is also capable of recording full HD videos at 30fps ratings. It has face detection and image stabilization feature that means nothing is unique in the camera but you can explore the camera features by installing a feature camera app.
The device is capable of working with 4G LTE network standard and the 3G HSDPA and off course the 2G one. It has slot for the micro SIM card so you need to either cut your previous traditional SIM card or you need to request a new micro one from the network provider.
It has all the traditional smartphone features for data like Bluetooth (4.0), NFC, Wi-Fi and the microUSB port. The Wi-Fi is provided with dual bands that mean you will find more speed than usual while surfing web with the Wi-Fi. It also has Wi-Fi Direct, Hotspot and the DLNA feature. You can surf the web at super high speed using the LTE data plans. It also has a port for TV out.
The device is not the lightest one as you may expect. It weighs about 160 gram (not a good digit) and measurement goes to 150.2 mm in height, 76.1 mm width and 9.4 mm thick. The device looks thinner but not the light weight.
It has all the traditional android smartphone features like HTML5 browser, SNS integration, Organizer, Predictive text input (don’t have Swype but), SMS, IM, RSS, Dolby mobile sound, GPS, etc.
It has accelerometer, proximity, gyro and compass sensors which help the device to function automatically.
LG has packed up the device with a giant battery having rating of 3140 mAh that means the device will be alive for at least one day (with general smartphone uses).
Till now LG has shown up only two colors for the device which are very basic and most popular, the black and white. Price of Optimus G Pro will be kept competitive with the price of other Phablet smartphones available right now in the market but you can but it at cheap price on a contract.
