Review: LG Optimus G Pro for AT&T
LG did a fine job with the Optimus G Pro for AT&T, but it's far from perfect. I wish the camera was just a little bit better. The design is a bit bland and the materials could be a bit better, too. It can be unwieldy for those with small hands, and the darned thing has an overabundance of apps and features. Those features make the G Pro highly customizable, though, and give users plenty of room to make the device their own.
These niggles aside, the G Pro has a stunning screen, solid voice quality, and amazing battery life.
If you're also considering the Samsung Galaxy Note II, here's the breakdown: The G Pro has a better screen, better battery life, better voice calls, and easier-to-manage hardware; the Note II has a stylus and even more software features, a better camera, and slightly better looks.
