LG sells 500,000 LG Optimus G Pro units in first 40 days in Korea
HTC One and the Sammy Twins (Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Samsung GALAXY Note II) is the question about whether the LG Optimus G Pro will make it to the states. Why shouldn't it? It has that large 5.5 inch FHD screen, a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 2GB of RAM. This is obviously LG's most powerful handset to date. If LG plans on becoming a serious global powerhouse on the high-end, now is not the time to leave out a huge market like the U.S. Can the stateside carriers handle another top-shelf model? Price it low enough for the mobile operators to make a good profit and they would sell two tin cans and a string.
The LG Optimus G Pro is chock full of great features like the second iteration of QSlide. An update will bring to the device the ability for the front facing camera to watch your eyes to turn off and on videos on the phone. Yes, we'd love to see the LG Optimus G Pro go toe to toe with the Samsung GALAXY Note II. Meanwhile, the first half million units are sold and perhaps this will give LG executives the encouragement needed to make the "G" on the phone stand for Global. With 500,000 units sold in the first 40 days, it must already stand for Good.

Was I rude to you in anyway ? I just posted an honest question for your comment !
FYI, the reason why I posted my comment was because Optimus G Pro is in almost every way trying to be like Samsung's Note series !!!
Have an opinion during a conversation not arrogance !

Both are trying to be each other. LG is just trying to be itself. :)

There's is too much in the past 6 years, Samsung has been tailing on the back of Apple since 2007. They aren't too much anymore, but yeah.

S-voice, and keeping the physical home button.
Sammy lost in court for a reason.

It is only in Korea. I think you don't know that Iphone5 was worse than this in Korea. Actually this beats Galaxy Note2 in Korea

I think LG is growing very fast and we will see it become a relevant player very soon.

Even i dislike LG's phones, that's pretty good considering they are going head-on with Samsung in their home ground...

Can I ask why you dislike LG's phones? Because of the late update?
I'm just curious. :)
24. asingha94 (Posts: 294; Member since: 08 Apr 2012)
I think may be those are not cheap plastic!may be they need more plastic than feature or good build quality....!!

REMEMBER, plastic is cheap, but plastic gives ok build quality, and doesn't get scratches easily. :)

Good for others manufacture grow sales, this means Samsung will getting sales lesser and lesser.
Is time lesson Samsung for following Apple, release product with similar design.

My 1 year old LG Optimus Sol still works perfect with Cyanogen on it.

The Koreans seems to replace their phone every time a new model comes out. Their dump site might be full of year old phones !

Say what ever you want to say. Only minority talking BS about Samsung. The majority proved with action and that's why Samsung can sell 30m unit in 100 days.

Korean People might have confused Gpro with note 2, so half million sold !!!!
