LG G Pro 2 Review


At Mobile World Congress, LG was demonstrating the G Pro 2, its latest large-display smartphone (aka “phablet”) that represent its tip of the...

LG G Pro 2 review: the evolutionary process


Iterate and update. That's the mantra of the smartphone world these days. Where radical design changes between generations of phones might have been commonplace just a year or so ago, most manufacturers are sticking with designs that work and iterating...

Great display ; Great battery life ; Improved design

Rear buttons are awkward ; Software is overbearing ; Camera is unimpressive

LG refines its phablet formula

LG G Pro 2 review


Big phones are on the rise, and these days, the bigger the screen, the more people want to scoop them up. We aren't always fans of phablets here at DT, but we've long stopped complaining about them. Some of you like your phones extra large, and we're...

Powerful processor ; Gorgeous screen ; KnockOn feature works well ; Comfortable to hold for a phablet ; MicroSD support ; Good camera

It’s still massive ; Not waterproof or extra durable ; Price tag unknown ; Lacks a stylus ; No standout reason to choose it

The G Pro 2 is another great phablet from LG, and is a point-for-point draw against the Galaxy Note 3.

LG G Pro 2


Editors' note, March 13, 2014 : This review has been updated with additional data and call performance analysis.

The LG G Pro 2 packs a beautiful and large HD screen, loads of camera features, and fast performance.

The Pro 2's big size can be unwieldy and its sharp edges are uncomfortable to hold. The phone's tap-to-unlock feature (Knock Code) is useful but isn't responsive enough.

The LG G Pro 2 delivers plenty of power, a huge and lovely screen, and a feature-packed camera, but the Galaxy Note 3's stylus and superior styling give it the edge.

LG G Pro 2 review: See you 2morrow


Ever since the Note series rose to power and propelled the phablet class to stardom, their reign has only been disturbed once. The first generation of the G Pro, known as Optimus back then, was unveiled as the ultimate phablet in terms of specs, but...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support; Quad-band 3G with HSPA; LTE cat4 ; 5.9" 16M-color 1080p True HD IPS Plus FullHD capacitive touchscreen ; Corning Gorilla Glass 2 display protection ; Android OS v4.4.2 KitKat; LG Optimus UI ; Quad-core 2.26GHz Krait 400...

Plastic finish of the back cover has poor grip ; No dedicated camera key ; No FM radio

Last year, the LG Optimus Pro almost did the unthinkable, beating the then-incumbent Note II at its own game. The LG flagship was better looking, more powerful and flaunted a better, higher-resolution screen than its rival. That was more than enough...

LG G Pro 2 - Mini Review


At MWC, LG announced their new G Pro 2, which was written up for an early hands-on and some analysis based upon the information given out by LG's press release on the device. This is definitely not a device that was unexpected either, as the Optimus G...

Simply put, I think the LG G Pro 2 is a solid evolution of the LG G2 design. While I went into the review expecting a phone that wasn’t much more than an attempt to cash in on the phablet trend, LG has definitely put in enough that I found the phone to...

LG G Pro 2 Review


The LG G Pro 2 is a big, 5.9-inch phablet, and the successor to the original G Pro. Equipped with a potent, 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 3GB of RAM, the G Pro 2 handles anything you throw at it with finesse. But it's the...

Relatively easy to handle ; Lightweight ; Great display ; A performance powerhouse ; Great all around camera

No stereo speakers ; Software still could use some fine-tuning

The LG G Pro 2 is a great device, full stop. It honestly feels needless to try and spin this into a spiral of accolades, as glamor for the sake of glamor doesn't seem to be the goal the LG engineers had in mind when building the phablet. Instead, the G...

While the LG G Pro 2 is a big jump from the Optimus G Pro, is it enough of an upgrade from the LG G2? We find out in this in-depth LG G Pro 2 review!

The information on the final price point of the LG G Pro 2 isn’t available yet, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a price tag akin to its high-end stature, at possibly around the $700 mark at launch. There’s no word on what carriers will have it at this...

LG G Pro 2 Review: Hands-on


The LG G Pro 2, the follow up to the well-recieved G Pro - has waded into the supersized smartphone battle, preparing to go head-to-head with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the HTC One Max and the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. So is LG's larger-than-life phablet...

On first view, the LG G Pro 2 has a lot going for it - most notably with the improved camera skills making it strong for stills and shooting video. Throw in a couple of other neat software touches, like Knock Code and Mini View, and LG has delivered...
