The G Pro offers high-end technology and plenty of space on the screen.However, the case is a step backwards compared to the Optimus G, Android is not up to date and a stylus is not used.
At LG we don’t know currently probably whether to laugh or cry. Profit in the last quarter by the collapse fell Einerseitz on the TV market by 9% to 479 billion won, or about 325 million euro compared to the previous year. On the other hand, it generated 36% more profit than in the first quarter of 2013 and could at least weaken so the negative trend. “Blame” the better figures is mainly the Smartphone business, which is booming currently right at LG. So twice as many Smartphones on the man could be brought in Q2/2013 as still in Q2/2012, the number now amounted to 12.1 million units, which represents a new record for the South Koreans.
Devastatingly beautiful display
These are the top Smartphones from LG LG Google nexus 4 and the LG Optimus G. With a few months delay another top model at our coasts up now, the LG Optimus G Pro. The Smartphone, which already had its premiere in February and is available in South Korea and the United States for some time, in a sense is the big brother of the Optimus G: during the latter over a 4.7 “-HD screen has, comes the new model with a 5.5”-FullHD display (401 ppi). The IPS screen receives an excellent witness from TechnoBuffalo in the test, the tester finds it “staggeringly beautiful to look at”. Only the reflections in the field were criticized.
Not just the display, also the power is hunky-dory, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, which pulses with 1.7 GHz per core is used and supported by a 2 GB large memory. The Adreno 320 graphics does the rest for a brisk operation and gaming experience. The internal memory is 16 GB and can be expanded to up to 64 GB.
When the operating system is running Android in the version 4.1.2 jelly bean, what was presented in view of the fact that the successor 4.2 already is called Android in November 2012, eight months ago, somewhat mau is. The user interface from LG at least offers some gimmicks like QSlide for multitasking or QuickMemo for notes. But who thinks that when a 5.5 “-Smartlet a stylus to a Samsung Galaxy touch 2 or is the LG Optimus vu on board, which must be disappointed.” Too bad, here LG has clearly spent, because when there is already so much place, this can also be used for an operation pen input.
In terms of choice of material one must blame South Koreans. The Optimus comes G or nexus 4 in a noble, glass-sheathed body, the G Pro is set in to plastic. Even if again inserted the “Crystal Reflection” effect, plastic is however a considerable step backwards. With a 9.4 mm the Smartlet is, after all, still reasonably slim, 172 grams are acceptable when the size also.
LTE on board
Cameras, a 13-megapixel back camera with full HD video in addition to a 2.1 MP front camera like on the Optimus G are integrated. This will be the first tests as from TechnoBuffalo and CNET for good, but not uniquely found a Samsung Galaxy S4 or HTC One would provide here better. Yet the lush 3,140 mAh battery, which similarly Tuckered makes the tests according to due to the large, high-resolution screen and powerful processor at the end of the day such as minor power donors in other devices but worth mentioning.
No full purchase recommendation
The Optimus G Pro appears first in black, and later in white at the price of 599 euro (RRP). Plastic enclosure, the missing stylus and the already outdated Android version are likely to deter while the one or other demanding users. Who but sees his Smartphone as entertainment device, with which you can well gamble, surf and watch movies, doing little wrong with the device. You should know exactly what you want from his unit.
