LG Optimus G Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S III
The Samsung Galaxy S III sports better voice quality in the earpiece than the hollow and distorted sounds from the G Pro. There are noise-canceling mics on both handsets, which weed out the ambient sounds, and relayed our voice well to the other side of the conversation.


The G Pro sports a monster 3140 mAh battery capacity that goes and goes, but the 2100 mAh unit on the Galaxy S III also offers very good talk and playback times, on account of the smaller, less-resolute display. Still, the Optimus G Pro would last you two days with moderate usage, but both handsets have removable battery covers, so you can place a fresh juicer in, when power runs out in the least suitable time.


Being this year's fresh spring crop, the Optimus G Pro predictably outshines last year's Samsung flagship in almost every category, with the most important being display quality and processing power. It also offers a few novel features, like a programmable QButton on the side, and a very useful IR blaster.

If you want a handset that is easier to manage with one hand, though, the S III is one of the lightest and most compact big-screen phones out there, yet LG has done an excellent job at keeping the weight and dimensions of the 5.5” G Pro in check, too. The S III sports one very important advantage before the high-end G Pro, however, and it is a lower price tag, as LG's phone can currently only be imported for north of $800, so if you don't have to be on the bleeding edge of technology, it might all balance out.
