Head-to-head comparison: LG G Pro 2 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3

At last year’s Mobile World Congress, LG introduced the LG G Pro, which would win Best Smartphone of MWC 2013 in what was a pretty impressive event industry-wide. Following up on that success, LG has just made the LG G Pro 2 official, and it will fittingly launch at MWC 2014.


We’ll be there to go hands on the device, but until that day arrives, here’s what you need to know about the latest addition to LG’s recently impressive and growing Android Portfolio.

The camera on the LG Pro boasts some eye-opening features including 120FPS HD recording, 4K ULTRA HD recording for playback on 4K TVs, and some software options to help you get just the right picture with focus, flash, and filters.

Key Specs:

  • 5.9-inch IPS Display (1920 x 1080)
  • 13MP camera
  • 2.1MP front camera
  • 2.26 GHz Quad-Core Processor
  • 3GB DDR3 RAM
  • 16GB or 32GB ROM
  • microSD slot
  • 3,200mAh battery (removable)
  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • Dimensions: 157.9 x 81.9 x 8.3mm
  • Weight: 172g
  • Bluetooth 4.0

The LG G Pro 2 will come in 3 colors: White, Red, and Titan.

The company is also touting a bunch of software features that are exclusive to LG devices, including:

  • Knock Code which can unlock your screen with a morse-code like series of taps
  • Content Lock to let users password protect specific files and apps
  • Mini View which shrinks the screen from 5.7 inches to 4.7 inches or 3.4 inches for one-handed use
  • Dual Browser for multi-tasking with side by side windows

Pricing and availability have yet to be determined, but we couldn’t be more excited to check out the LG G Pro 2. It definitely enters Phablet territory and will compete head to head with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and other large, beefy, multimedia intensive devices.

Stay tuned for live coverage on the LG G Pro from Mobile World Congress 2014!
