While LG may not have the weight Samsung has in the market for extra large phones, it’s no stranger to phone-tablet hybrids. LG released the Optimus Vu last year, as well as the Optimus Vu II. But the less common 4:3 aspect ratio made the 5-inch devices look and feel much larger than they truly were, resulting in a rather unwieldy experience.
Enter the LG Optimus G Pro. On the outside, it may be a Galaxy Note II look-alike, but LG’s model has some notable improvements over Samsung’s gargantuan phone. But there are also some things about the Optimus G Pro that are off-putting. Either way, our review unit just arrived this morning and we immediately gave it the unboxing treatment!
