LG G Pro 2 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and an army of phablets: size comparison

LG G Pro 2 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and an army of phablets: size comparison
The LG G Pro 2 has just gone official and it’s one big phone in not just specs, but also in size. With a huge 5.9-inch display, the G Pro 2 easily fits in the category of phablets, along with devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, HTC One max and Sony Xperia Z Ultra. However, in this new world of large-screen smartphones, some devices are bigger and some manage to stay relatively lean in overall size and appearance. Is the G Pro 2 one of the bigger or smaller ones? Let’s find out.

One thing that’s immediately clear by just looking at the G Pro 2 is that it is not a device that you’d be comfortable using single-handedly. There is no established measure about what smartphones size is good for single-handed usage (and people’s hand sizes vary a lot), but we’d say that - on average - phones that are narrower than 2.55 inches (65mm) are considered to be comfortable for typing with just one hand. The G Pro 2 measures a much wider 3.22 inches (82mm), and is way out of that league.

At the same time, when compared to other large-screen phones out there, it is actually smaller than most of them, and only the Galaxy Note 3 is considerably more compact. At the same time, the Note 3 also features a smaller, 5.7-inch display.

Right below, you’d find a visual comparison of the LG G Pro 2 fared against not just the Note 3, but all top phablets and regular smartphones out there. It’s big, but big is becoming the new norm now, don’t you think?

Unfortunately, the G Pro 2 will probably still have an ugly TouchWiz like interface

Note 3 is still better than G2 Pro except Camera. I got one LG G2 and I don't like the way they optimized their UI. This is just pure copy cat of Samsung's Nature UX.

Nah, Touch Wiz is not nice at all, its so ugly! In my opinion, I don't like Touch Wiz! Stop saying LG Copy! LG everything is at its own! Go do research before commenting, the LG Optimus G Pro Smart screen and Smart Video features comes first (similar then this GS4 called Smart Scroll, Smart Pause

Samsung did anounce these features well before LG. Get your facts right.

Who said that Samsung did announce these features well before LG, show me the website if you do found that news! LG Optimus G Pro launched first without announcing the Smart Video, Smart Screen features. Then here comes Samsung Galaxy S4 they only announced on the event!

Truth to be told, LG was the first to launch Smart Video and Smart Screen feature before Samsung. I just hope you guys read more before commenting further.

LG has NO SD CARD option. This phone is a complete copy of the Note 3. Considering I'm getting rid of my note 3 for a non Samsung, don't call me a fanboy. In reality, the Note 3 is better than the LG. LG: no SD, can't remove battery, no Spen, no extensive gestures(if it's anything like the g2) barely bigger screen and traditional LG almost good product.
