Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Has A Very Real Roadblock Already

By  | 

When we first caught sight of the Optimus G Pro and its 5.5 inch form, comparisons were made to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The G Pro could be the Galaxy Note’s long lost sibling. Now that the specs are revealed, it looks to be a serious threat to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 which comes out later this year.

At the MWC booth in Barcelona they did manage to get hold of the LG handset and they found that it was actually very impressive. It also happens to be the fastest device without the Samsung branding on it. The LG Optimus G Pro comes with Android 4.2.1 and this could of course mean that it is helped along with Project Butter.

The hardware, we are not so sure about. The device does have a solid feel, however it does feel as though it is heavier than the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and it is thicker. On the back of the device there is the same pattern as seen on the LG Nexus 4. However in white this device doesn’t come with the clean look of the LG Nexus 4 in black. It does give off a bathroom title look to it.

There is the physical home button and this does look small in photos, but it is raised up slightly from the handset. It has a green glow and it looks cool. The Optimus G Pto does have a memo button that has been placed in a confusing place, but there is a circular Qi charger to use with the handset.

The LG Optimus G Pro comes with a quad core Snapdragon processor at 1.7GHz; it has a display of 5.5 inches, of IPS LCD with 1080p. It also has a battery of 3140mAh and 2GB of RAM. The device does have a more refined look when compared to the Optimus Vu and it may be a competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, but we are not sure about how much better it could be than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 given that the specs are yet to be announced.
