Not bad... but those buttons and UI is a deal breaker at least for me.

Overheating much?

No heating system in your country? She's in a store where an average temp. is probably above 20 degree celcius like most electronics stores in Korea.

Not really. I use the S Pen a lot.
This doesnt have a Stylus of its own.
So for me, the Note 3 is better.

Still, this fone looks awesome :)

LG G pro2 and Note3 were both from South Korea
And There is already a test Comparison did by Koreans and G pro2 killed Note3 in most stuff.

G pro2 is the New King

Again, no Stylus. It may not matter to most people but some of us need it.
Just like my Mom's iPhone perfectly suits her needs, the Note 3 perfectly suits mine. I will never say the Note 3 is the king. Nor an LG or HTC or Lumia or Sony or Motorola or Apple or BlackBerry smartphone.

Why? Because we all have different preferences. Personally, i hate OnScreen buttons. That kills this fone for me.

So, as i said, it is no doubt a beast fone.
But King? No lol

Sorry? What are we, first graders?

You dont need to be sorry about what you like.
Thats the beauty of choice My Friend.
You love and support LG? Thats awesome. I loved the G2.

No radio? I never use the radio in my car, so i will never use the radio on a fone.
And yeah, the speaker is a bit on the weak side but again, i use In Ear Headphones.

OIS Plus is a must have feature no doubt. I do wish my Note 3 had it.

As for the Stylus, im pretty sure a regular Stylus will not give you the same productivity as Sammy's S Pen

Anyways, lets just enjoy technology since competition will benefit us, the consumers :)

No reviews for this phone so far available on the Internet, so could you please, please and again please, share with us your experience with the G Pro 2 and your experience with the Note 3 and tell us why is it the better phone?

The front looks better than the Note3, I'll give you that but I have yet to see how is it better. They have almost the same spec but the Note experience is hard to beat! LG has been trying to replicate Samsung's features for years now, in vain. I'd choose the Note3 over this anyday.

No need to worry... That's a marketing strategy in Korea. South Koreans only like expensive things so if they don't set the price very high, no one will buy. By the way, Korean telcos giving subsidy like a hell so no worry. (I am Korean and I am crticizing myself. Hahahahaha)

I watch the video. It's a guy explaining the camera feature to a reporter. There no reference or side by side comparison to Note 3.

"so so" specs for 2014 actually. with a new batch of flagships coming soon, this will sell not very much as LG's popularity is not huge.
