88% Review LG Optimus G E975 Smartphone | Notebookcheck
Familiar devices. More than four months after the launch of the Google Nexus 4 the counterpart from LG is finally available. The specifications are almost identical but the price is much higher. This review will tell you how the South Korean flagship device performs compared to other high-end devices.
LG Optimus G Pro for AT&T: what's different?
Source: Engadget English
There are two unavoidable truths about the AT&T G Pro: it's $100 cheaper on-contract and better specced than AT&T's Note II (hello, Snapdragon 600!). For what LG's crammed into its oblong shell, the G Pro really is a bargain for power users. But it has one ugly mole (no, not that AT&T globe) that not even its stunning 1080p display can overshadow, and that's its less-than-stellar battery life.

AT&T LG Optimus G Pro Review
Source: Slashgear English
The LG Optimus G Pro is a rather fine piece of machinery. It’s offers you an alternative to the HTC One and/or Samsung GALAXY S 4 here up on the top tier with its similar display (larger, though again, with the same amount of pixels), identical processor, and surprisingly similar set of features. It also offers you a unique hardware build and a camera that’ll go very nearly toe-to-toe with the leaders.

LG Optimus G Pro E985

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.

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.

LG G2 mini hands-on review: Mid-ranged G2 offers new colours and software features
Source: PC Advisor English
The G2 mini is almost exactly what you'd expect it to be. A smaller and lower spec version of the flagship G2. The phone looks and feels nice but we're waiting for the price. A key competitor is the Xperia Z1 Compact which is a mini version without the downgrades.

LG G2 Mini review: Hands-on
Source: T3 English
It might be pocket-sized but that doesn't mean the LG G2 Mini shouldn't pack a punch. So while there's a strong physical resemblance to the G2 we'd like to have seen a little more of the G2's power. But as ever, a lot will depend on the price tag and if you're looking for a more compact handset, with a decent Android operating system and a wide range of top-end software tricks then the LG G2 Mini could be a solid option.

The LG G2 mini is a handset that could have, and should have wowed. Instead I’ve been left frustrated with yet another leading manufacturer that has failed to make a truly representative flagship spinoff at a size that is appealing to the masses. After first use I would say that, if you can afford to, don’t wait for the mini to hit stores, splash out on the LG G2 now instead.

Hands on: LG G2 Mini review
Source: Techradar English
The LG G2 Mini is a decent smartphone, but it may have arrived a bit too late to really make the same sort of impact as the S4 Mini or One Mini. If the G2 Mini does rock a similar price tag to its rivals then perhaps its larger screen and big battery will help it get some grounding in the market - but we're just going to have to wait and see.
