Just before Mobile World Congress, we got our first peek at the LG Optimus G Pro. Immediately, everyone knew exactly where LG’s inspiration for a 5.5-inch smartphone came from. On the face, and even the backside, the Optimus G Pro borrows design cues from Samsung’s two most popular smartphones, the Galaxy Note II, primarily, and the Galaxy S III.

It shares a similar physical Home button with adjacent capacitive buttons for Back and Menu, it incorporates a similar faux-brushed metal trim made of plastic and even shares a ton of similar software features.

A comparison between the Galaxy Note II, the undisputed king of the phablets, and the Optimus G Pro was inevitable. On paper, the Optimus G Pro wins by a wide margin, with its 1080p display, 13-megapixel camera and newer, more powerful and efficient Snapdragon 600 chipset. But the Galaxy Note II, even when nearing seven-months-old, holds its own. Check out the video below for more!
