It doesn't really matter how fast the new 4G smartphones are - internet providers will find a way of slowing it down because that way, they make more money out of YOU.
PandaBear, 22 Feb 2013Didn't know that LG fanboys exist!!!Haha, yeah its quite amazing that anyone could devote their passion to support LG phones, of all things. But i guess it is possible, i have even come across such a thing as Lada fanboys (For the asians here, Lada is a russian car brand that is not known for anything that could be consider even remotely positive, there is nothing to love about a Lada, very much like LG phones)
And lastly, the G Pro represents the max PPI LG is capable of making, dont expect any 5 inch from LG with LG's own display anytime soon, they are unable to manufacture at that pixel density.
Thats why they have to enter 2013s competition with a 5.5 incher, and that would not necessarily be a bad thing (i have Note 2 and i like the size), if they had a good design and something more unique, but making a direct copy of the already less than stellar looking Galaxy Note 2 is hardly what the market wants right now, especially without the digitizer. G Pro is a niche product if ever there was such a thing.
PandaBear, 22 Feb 2013They have the Optimus G Pro for that! Though launching the Optimus G now in Europe is so freak... moreAnd further, since when was the G an Apple contender??
G was late to Europe because of ICS, it would not have sold much without Jelly Bean back last year when it was still a high end device (if it ever was high end, again we have the G and Nexus4 shocking bad sound in recorded videos, that is unparallelled even on low end). All in all it was a device unfit for the European market, Nexus 4 could sell because of the lower price and the newest Android available, it didnt come with ICS =)
The quad core of the G may help it to sell a few devices in Europe if the price is low enough, but surely one would be better off choosing the coming Xperia SP.
i will never buy a LG smartphone again after I was left on android 2.3.5 with my LG Optimus 3D, which was a top smartphone at the time.
PandaBear, 22 Feb 2013They have the Optimus G Pro for that! Though launching the Optimus G now in Europe is so freak... moreNO, the G-pro is a Note 2 competitor. Its even a Note 2 copy.
So, G is an upper midrange contender now, and i doubt it can compete with their own Nexus 4 in that class, and since both G and N4 has horrible audio quality in video recording it does not make sense to chose either of the two. Its funny that $25 chinese phones has better audio quality in videos.
Tom, 22 Feb 2013What is it for? We have flagships coming like HTC One, Xperia Z, with newer hardware, Full HD ... moreThey have the Optimus G Pro for that! Though launching the Optimus G now in Europe is so freaking late!
Don't know why it went USA first considering Europeans are not as Apple loyal as the Americans!

LG should have introduced this phone a few months ago.
For LG fanbois, you be happy with this phone. The optimus G is a very good phone already but this one is enhanced version so it has more features and better performance.
Great phone frnds. great processer of sanpddragon s4. World's fast one
