In 40 days after sales started LG shouts "hey! we sold a phone!!!" (when compared to Samsung sales during first week after launch of another flagship device).

A bit of disappointing because Optimus G Pro should have the latest Jelly Bean 4.2.2 instead of 4.1.1.

But compare it with the Note II instead. The Note II only managed to get to 1 million devices in Korea after about 4 months of sales. Even with declining numbers, the G Pro can get quite close to that. So yeah, not the best ever figures, but for such a device, quite good.

And yes, I am aware with the high level of smartphone penetration in Korea, but not all are of the massive size like a Note II or G Pro. Most go for a more moderate size device.

> In reply to geordie81 @ 2013-04-02 15:22 from 3xqh - click to readEventhough I have no doubt that Samsungs SIII and soon SIV will outsell the Optimus G Pro, selling 500k in 40 days time on a population still is not a small feat. With some rough calculation of 75% of the population buying such expensive phones (I seriously doubt these sort of devices are bought for up to 4yo's for example) and taking in time it's in 1/9th of a year, where many such device is sold on a 2 year contract or bought to be used for at least such amount of time, you easily have 20-25% of the total market buying a phone in that period of time. Nothing shameful imo.

What do you meant *32 GB in-built memory card*???
I know it has 32GB built in memory and support upto 64GB memory card.
Do you meant LG actually sticking in 32GB memory card inside the phone instead of memory chip,just like most China's tablets and mobile phones?
