LG Reveals Its New Flagship – LG Optimus G Pro

LG Optimus G Pro

MWC 2013 continues to amaze the audience with impressive devices. This time Korean hi-tech giant LG has made an appeal to the public. It has revealed a new flagship of the company – LG Optimus G Pro. This huge handset is one more example of how smartphones are getting bigger and bigger bridging the gap between phone and tablet.

The G Pro handset is a marvel to look at. It has an impressive 5.5in display with 1920X1080 resolution and a pixel density of 400ppi. The device sports an IPS display that makes it look classy, bright, and vibrant. The handset has a huge 3,140mAh battery and the newest 4G LTE support. According to LG, the main advantage of G Pro’s display is that it uses IPS technology instead of AMOLED. The main argument of LG is that IPS screens allow having higher resolutions that standard AMOLED. Although it is true, IPS screens cannot manage deep blacks. The display of LG Optimus G Pro had a little visible light leakage, and its blacks were closer to gray than to deep black.

The handset is equipped with a 1.7GHz quad-core processor that allows it to run Android Jelly Bean seamlessly. However, when it comes to tests, the device does not surprise. In the Sunspider JavaScript benchmark it showed a good (but not spectacular) 1238ms. However, it should be noted that Sunspider is dependent on the connection and on the web browser, so it is hard to tell how the device will perform in games and other apps. The good news is that LG did a good job and added some valuable customizations to Android. For example, the device has smart custom icons, app tray backgrounds, etc. One of the best custom features is QSlide. It allows the user to run two apps on the same screen. This multiscreen function can be activated by simple dragging: just select a running app from the notification bar and drag it to the place where you want it to run. The QSlide feature is very useful.

All in all, LG Optimus G Pro is a very impressive handset. It can be a decent rival to such titans as the HTC One, Sony Xperia Z, and forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S4. Sadly, the date of UK’s release is not set, and some experts claim that the device will not come to the country at all because of Britain’s outdated 4G network infrastructure.
