LG Optimus G Pro hands-on at MWC 2013

LG Optimus G Pro hands-on
We sat with LG this morning to explore its newest Optimus G Pro flagship that will carry the battle with the Xperia Z, HTC One and Galaxy S IV behemoths and here are our initial impressions.

How does a 5.5" 1080x1920 Full HD IPS-LCD screen sound to you? It looks gorgeous, and you can't really tell there is a lower 401ppi pixel density than the 5-inchers out there. It is with vibrant colors and great viewing angles.

This is not bad for a start, but LG also throws in a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 with LTE radio, which powers the interface with ease, adding to the 2 GB of RAM, 13 MP rear camera and 2 MP front one capable of 1080 video high end features. We have some camera samples for you here.

We saved the best for last - the 5.5" Optimus G Pro sports a giant 3,140 mAh battery, 32 GB of internal memory and a microSD slot for cards up to 64 GB.

It is quite a largish handset to hold, though it is rather thin at 9.4mm, but that's to be expected from a 5.5-incher, however it feels a bit slippery with that glossy back that has a patterned look all around, hinting at a glass chassis similar to the Optimus G

The phone is quite compact for the screen size and with minimal bezel on the sides, aiding the slender profile, yet it feels larger than the Galaxy S III we had handy, so check out the comparison picks in the slideshow below.
