LG Optimus G Pro vs Samsung Galaxy Note II
It is evident from the design and screen size that the LG Optimus G Pro is shooting for Samsung Galaxy Note II's market niche, so a heavyweight fight between the two is warranted from the get-go.
The G Pro so far has been announced in two versions – the 5.5” one for Korea we use for the comparison, and a 5” one for Japan's DoCoMo spring lineup. LG also said it will be arriving to North America in Q2, but didn't specify which exactly screen size will make it.
One of the numerous virtues of the Note II is that it houses a stylus as an alternative input method to take better use of the giant display, while the G Pro doesn't have one. Has LG managed to make it sufficiently tasty to fight on equal footage with the versatile Note II? Read on to find out...
Both phones sport 5.5” displays, but the Optimus G Pro is lighter and more compact than Samsung's wide Note II, thanks to the minimum side bezel. LG has gone with a more narrow, elongated chassis, which is easier for one-handed navigation. If it wasn't for the back Android key that LG slapped on the left, and you almost drop the G Pro each time it has to be used with one hand, that is.

Other than the width, the two phones look almost identical, save for the much narrower home key underneath the G Pro display. They both have faux metal side rims, tactile volume rockers on the left and power/lock keys on the right, and both sport plastic removable back covers, which let you swap the battery, or add extra storage. LG blinged the back a bit more with a pattern on the plastic cover, and a large metal ring around the camera lens, and that's that.
phone you've mapped to it, and an infrared sensor at the top to control your TV, AC, home stereo and the like. Which features are more important here depends on personal preferences, as you might have waited for a long time to bring it back to that annoying bartender that switches the channel in the middle of the football game.
