LG G Pro 2 hands-on (Video)

Waiting until MWC to announce your new hardware? So gauche. Rather than fight for the crowd’s attention, LG decided to get a head start on things, and introduced its G Pro 2 well over a week ago. As such, there hasn’t been any mystery there: we know the phablet runs a Snapdragon 800, has 3GB of RAM, and offers a 13-megapixel optically stabilized camera.

But even armed with all that knowledge, we still needed some hands-on time with the phone in order to more properly form our assessment of it; especially with larger devices like this, design and layout are more important than ever, and an OEM needs to be careful to ensure that its handset is still comfortably usable, despite its size.

Would the G2’s rear-mounted volume controls work for us as well on a model this size? What would we think of LG’s latest software, including the knock-based unlock? Is the G Pro 2 going to be enough to satisfy us until that G3 comes around (which could be in as little as three or as many as six months from now)? Watch on to find out:
