LG Optimus G Pro E980 (Black, 16GB, optional HSN Warranty Plan)
Stay in the moment with an immersive and expansive display, camera features that capture the essence of a memory, and processing power ready to fuel unparalleled experiences.
LG Optimus G Pro's overall hardware design is fresh and beautiful. The LG Optimus G Pro boasts a Snapdragon 600 chipset with four Krait 300 cores clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM and the Adreno 320 GPU. With specs like that you would expect the phablet to be a real benchmark champion and it surely delivers.
Harness heightened efficiency while lowering overall power consumption with the Snapdragon™ Processor with 1.7Ghz Quad-Core CPUs. With four independently operating central processing units, it doesn’t just work harder—it works smarter. The impressive 2GB of RAM allows smooth performance for the most demanding games and apps.
The eye-catching 5.5" True HD IPS Plus display of Full HD resolution is definitely one of the LG Optimus G Pro's key selling points. LG's latest innovation results in brilliantly rendered colors, easily on par of best-in-line displays. Optimus G Pro's display shows extremely accurate colors, unlike other display technologies. Featuring a screen so expansive, colors so accurate, and images so dazzling on a 5.5" Full HD IPS Screen for Optimal Viewing of 1080p Video, Optimus G Pro delivers an on-device cinematic viewing experience so immersive you could literally sell tickets—and charge $10 for hot dogs.
When there are no words, there is the 13 MP Full HD camera. With advanced optics and features, faster shutter speeds, intuitive adjustments, and voice commands capture your life story in all its glory—giving frameworthy moments a chance to shine again on-screen.
Sometimes life feels like a reality show—and with Optimus G Pro, yours could be a number-one hit. Dual Recording and Dual camera add drama to any video or photo by activating the front and rear video cameras simultaneously, capturing the subject as well your reaction— whether intentional or entirely spontaneous. Moreover, VR Panorama dismisses the average-view picture and whirls around for expansive-view dimensions, capturing a virtual 360°-like scene unlike anything you’ve seen.
Optimus G Pro comes with standard set of built-in sensors like accelerometer (to monitor device orientation), gyroscope (for orientation and motion sensing), proximity sensor (for disabling screen when mobile is held against the ear during a call), ambient light sensor (to change screen brightness depending on ambient conditions), GPS with A-GPS and S-GPE support etc. For connectivity, the phone uses MicroUSB port and standard 3.5mm jack. Wireless connectivity options are Bluetooth (v4.0), Infrared, WiFi, EDGE, GPRS and NFC.
The build of the Optimus G Pro is dominated by glass - both the front and the back - though LG hasn't disclosed the exact details of the finish. Still the phablet manages a premium, quality feel. Above the display we find the usual setup - a centrally located earpiece, a proximity sensor and the secondary 2.1MP video-call-enabled camera right next to it. Below the display, a hardware Home button is surrounded by capacitive Back and Menu keys. The home key is rather thin and almost flush against the surface, it's not the most comfortable button to use. There is a status LED below the Home key. It is highly customizable and lights up in different colors depending on the notification.
The left side the Optimus G Pro features a customizable Q-Slide key and the single-piece volume rocker below it. Those keys used to be combined in the Optimus G, but we like this solution better as it rules out accidental presses of the volume controls. The volume rocker is noticeably more raised than the Q-Slide key, which helps touch orientation. On the right side is the lonely Power/Lock key.
The top of the G Pro has an IR emitter for the remote control functionality and right next to it is the 3.5mm audio jack. The MHL-enabled microUSB port is at the bottom. There are two mics on the phablet - one at the bottom, which serves as a mouthpiece, and one at the top, for noise-cancellation. The battery cover is made entirely of glossy plastics, but it is nicely textured and reminds us of the Nexus 4 back. The pattern uses squares instead of dots, but they still "move" as you tilt the phone. the back of the LG Optimus G Pro also features the 13MP camera lens, centrally placed at the top. The LED flash and loudspeaker grille are on both sides of the camera.
Optimus G Pro is powered by Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean). The LG Optimus G Pro is in fact the first LG smartphone to be powered by Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with the company's own Optimus UI right out of box. The customizations run deep and there's a rich selection of themes, changeable icons and home-brewed apps. A good number of Android-enabled features also come with G Pro pre-installed. Some of these software features are reloaded and feature-rich lock-screen, intuitive camera GUI, Optimus UI, QSlide, QuickMemo etc.
Google Now was first introduced in Jelly Bean 4.1 and is definitely one of the most interesting additions to the OS. Simply put, it's Google's version of a personal assistant. Google Now is in the same neck of the woods as Apple's Siri, but it learns constantly from your use patterns. It's accessed by swiping up on any of the on-screen controls and gives you a short overview of information it believes is relevant to you. Going to work the same route every morning? Google Now will let you know there's a big traffic jam on your usual way to the office and will offer an alternative route.

Turn it on. Point and click. Watch the magic unfold. The Optimus G Pro’s QuickRemote 2.0 makes it easy to be the master of a variety of compatible devices, regardless of the brand. Magic Remote Pad and Text Keypad features are integrated to provide the ultimate user experience when using Optimus G Pro as a remote control for LG Smart TVs released in 2012 and after. Turn your phone into a mobile theater or presentation center with SmartShare, enabling wireless sharing to TVs equipped with Miracast — and perform other tasks at the same time with Dual Screen Dual Play.

The LG Optimus G Pro is the most advanced phablet on the market at the moment. It's also one of the few devices with a 1080p screen that's bigger than 5". The Snapdragon 600 chipset and the coupled 2GB of RAM are more than enough to execute daily-life smartphone tasks without any hassle or lag. The updated version of QSlide is there to make full use of the hardware -- you can have up to two floating apps running alongside a full screen app, the big screen and fast quad-core Krait 300 CPU are there to collaborate with this feature to give you a 100% performance.
LG has done a great job with camera, connectivity and display too. The multiple TV-Out functions and IR remote are great for any home theater but will also come in handy during a business presentation. And the camera is the only one outside the Nexus family to have the Photo Sphere-like feature. The dual-recording feature will make videos more personal too. Overall, G Pro delivers what a flagship really should. It is a beast in beautiful package, with feature-rich OS and hardware, making it one of the best Android smartphones out there.
