Reviews for the LG Optimus G Pro E985

75% LG Optimus G Pro (E988) Review
Source: Tech2.in.com English
LG’s Optimus G Pro is available online for a smidge under Rs 40,000, which is an expensive buy now that the Galaxy S4 is down to Rs 36,500. If screen size is what you’re looking for, then Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 is still a very relevant option and is a lot cheaper too. We feel the G Pro has entered the market a little too late and a price cut is in order if LG wishes to move them off the shelf. Some of the standout features includes the gorgeous screen, incredibly snappy response, good battery life, IR blaster with the very handy QRemote app and a form factor that’s not terribly unusable for one-handed operations.

LG Optimus G Pro from AT&T Review
Source: Hot Hardware English
If you're considering a purchase of the Optimus G Pro, the phone's large, 5.5-inch screen is likely a key feature that has caught your eye. Indeed, the screen looks great, and the fact that it supports Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution is a definite selling point as well. However, although the Optimus G Pro's large screen is definitely an attractive feature, the resulting increase in the phone's footprint will deter some users.

80% LG Optimus G Pro specs and review: oversized smartphone with a beautiful screen
Source: PC Advisor English
LG’s Optimus G Pro is king of the small—but growing—phone/tablet hybrid market (I refuse to use the term “phablet”). It’s a performance powerhouse that, despite its large size, is relatively comfortable to use even with average-size hands. The G Pro loses a few points for its limited multitasking features, but if you’re looking to buy a large Android phone and aren’t dismayed by the underperforming camera, then the G Pro is definitely worth considering.

Das LG Optimus G Pro ist eine gelungene Antwort auf das Samsung Galaxy Note 2. LG macht sinnvolle Softwareanpassungen, die nicht überladen sind und allesamt wirklich nützlich. Allerdings ist die Frage wie LG das Gerät in Zukunft platziert. Die IFA steht nämlich vor der Tür und dort wird Samsung das Galaxy Note 3 präsentieren.
Positive: useful software adaptions

Comment

Model:

The LG Optimus Pro E985 is the latest offering from LG that successfully attempts to gain market shares from the biggest companies on the market. It resembles the popular Galaxy Note II, with a light plastic body that feels solid and well constructed. The gorgeous and expansive screen measures 5.5 inches, with a lovely 1920 x 1080 resolution. Colors are immersive and beautiful, and the responsive screen supports 10 point multi-touch, and handles it well too. The beautiful screen paired with the great onboard speakers turn this into a multimedia powerhouse.

Creating media with the 13 MP camera is a breeze too. The brilliant auto mode makes taking great photos easy. Recording HD video with the LG Optimus G Pro E985 is great and it includes stabilization. The performance matches the most popular devices' on the market with its 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor and a satisfying storage capacity of 32 GB. It comes with an infrared blaster just like the one found in most flagship smartphones these days and a brilliant remote app that is easily one of the best out there, beating the competition in functionality. In addition, the battery will easily last a full day with moderate to intensive use, or a day and a half with light use. One disadvantage of the LG Optimus Pro E985 is the cluttered UI that LG has overlain on Android. If the UI does not frustrate the user, it is a great device.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
