I have owned note2 and lg gpro both are awesome phones ,the note 2 has better or over saturated colours while lg g pro has higher resolution and more natural colors ,note 2 has a tad slower processor but not noticable under general use while lg g pro has a ir blaster which can be used as a universal remote,while note 2 has a stylus which helps in taking notes ,note 2 has multi screen support while lg has q slide apps for multitasking,both cameras are comparable , lg is a tad thinner and more comfortable in hand,both battery lifes are excellent while my lg g pro last a little longer,so its a tight call its more a matter of preference ,after using note 2 for about year i would say i am more than happy owning a lg g pro which i got at a bargain price

final test for both phones = ball hammer test
which one do you think will win? the note 2 or g pro. guess, not even both.

no phone is perfectly done, every bit of them has their flaws. note 2 is old compared to g pro, and g pro is losing with s4, but these are all reviews. i still believe that a smart phone is smart enough to give you what you need, text, email, calls. after all, these are the logic why the phone was invented, communication, does lg made the first communication from moon to earth? no! does samsung able to do that? no! who made it? you wont believe me guys, its motorolla..
anyway, guys, they are just phone. don't enslave yourselves with them. make your phone your slave. time to grow up guys. nuff bragging... :)

Samsung was unable to convince qualcomm and google that samsung is the best ... thats why qualcomm made tie-up with LG and google gave next nexus production to LG ..

Poor samsung fans .. defending too much .. i think better they can troll in apple forums not in LG/HTC/SONY

Note 2 is still King! LG Optimus is just a big phone. It is slighty quicker which one won't notice during everyday use and more ppi is becoming like higher mega pixels for cameras. It's at the point where the eye isn't sensitive enough to pick up those extra ppi. Note 2 is just not a large phone but a multimedia/multi tasking powerhouse of a phone. Amoled screen is crystal clear and phone is very fast. S-pen takes the Note to a another level with the extra features and software on the phone as well as the available apps. Samsung software better than LG's too. Note 2 is just not a great phone but an awesome tool!!!

Note is still considered and overall more functional device to many. ANd the 8mp cam is very comparable to the 13mp. And obviously wacom. And The G pro might have a higher ppi, but most find that Amoled to look much better. And I'm talking about real users. Not online trollers and haters.

this review is unfair.. The note 2 is much older than the Optimus G Pro. A real comparison should be done with the S4 or a future note 3

Bang for buck LG.Drip dead Gorgeous screen visible even with the sun over shoulder. Fast.Great battery life. Business ( for me) dependable. Best value overall LG. 'Nuff said.
