LG’s current flagship device, the Optimus G Pro, has finally made its way to our shore and is looking to go head-to-head with the other marquee 5-inchers such as the SGS4 & Sony Xperia Z.

Although this bad boy doesn’t have anything new to offer that we haven’t seen before, it has all the bells and whistles that puts it on the same league as the other flag bearers. That includes a 5.5-inch display complete with IPS for better viewing angle and a pair of snappers that are capable of recording 1080p quality at 30fps.

    This is not LTE capable is it? I bought mine last month and noticed that it is not LTE capable… My unit is E988.. hanggang 3G lang siya.. too bad.. i felt ripped off.. :(

    The best thing about this late to the party fone is that when you turn it on, a rainbow of colors surround the home. That’s it.

    Sobrang late na nila nirelease dito sa Pinas. Palabas na yung G2 pero itong G Pro ngayon pa lang naging available dito sa atin.

  4. Lucky G2 says:

    i ‘ll pass !
    I WANT LG G2!ONLY G2 for this year!

    LG is getting better and better……..

    Does it suffer the same issue with lg optimus g where unit warming hampers the phone’s ability to incrase its brightness. Sometimes lg optimus pro is stuck at 75% brightness to prevent overheating thereb decreading its full media experience?

    I was waiting for this phone. I thought this is what I’d buy. But LG decided to reduce the internal memory to 16GB instead of 32gb. Now Im not sure if I’d get this. I’d probably take S4 or the 64gb HTC One.

    This phone was launched WAY back in Q1 2013. Late local arrival is the problem. Although the features are comparable to competitors, it brings nothing new to the table and it’s impossible to topple Samsung with deep pockets for its marketing.

    Laging late naman sila as usual

    ngayong malapit na i-announce ang Note 3 wala ng papansin diyan, konting antay na lang

    Note 3 = More powerful SoC, more RAM,Bigger Battery, S-Pen functionality….

    • wtf says:

      Haha… too late… kawa naman un bumile jan. Excited pa nman na sobra! Haha. Marame na pong bago lalabas. Haha

    • abuzalzal says:

      Ano daw?

      LG is always late, aanga-anga kasi sila palagi, parang Blackberry lang, by the time na dumating na sa target country, nawawala na yung prestige dahil 2-3 months late in the game na … kumbaga sa fish delivery, bilasa na kung dumating dahil natatagalan sa biyahe

    • Wtf says:

      For the record, I got this to replace my note 2 and will get the xperia ultra to replace this. Why should I wait when I can afford it? And no note 3 for me, Samsung phones are just too common, and shifty looking, everyone has one….. It’s the android iphone with ui lag as bonus due to useless features….. Air view????? Never used to it and the list goes on. My primary phone is still HTC one, it’s Sexy shit!

    • abuzalzal says:

      sour-graping much wtf? haha

      aminin mo na…who doesn’t want a Note 3 and a bonus S-pen functionality?, your statement is just laden with too much hipocrisy lol

      the Note 3 will be 10x better than this POS anyways…for the same price

    • wtfJR says:

      Blah blah… haha!

    • Wtf says:

      Sorry but I do not buy samjunk phones, rofl. Samsung = great marketing….. Look at the ui lag!!!! Mga haha. Sour gripping over a phone, are you that pass poor??? End of story. Night cheap poor bastard (insert evil laughter) mwahaha. Don’t mind replying, won’t read your poor retaliation… The end samsucker :-)

    • wtfJR says:

      Blah blah! Whaha! Ako si blablaman! Haha!

    • wut? says:

      hhaha, WTF is shit, I hate the design of the S line but I bought an S3 on the first release and an Iphone 5 last september, both sucked but unfortunately the S3 was quite a fighter, well looking at samsungs current S series and an upcoming not, they’re not a giant leap forward, but the S4 W/ octacore chipset is Sick! But I won’t buy another phone until the tegra 4’s come out, these current phones such as this is trash when it comes to cpu vs the tegra 4’s… So stop bashing other people cuz you have a stupid phone yourself and you sound like a kid who lurks on reviews online.

  9. Rouge says:

    this phone is fashionably late… highend phones with Snapdragon 800 SoC have already entered the market with comparable price!.

    • Wtf says:

      Note 3 coming Sept. The new 800 soc are to be released Sept still. This phone was never late, maybe Phil release, yes, we are always late. And don’t bet your ass on the 800soc, new sets coming Feb with even a more powerful soc. It evolves every 6 months, don’t buy anything if your scared of tech evolution jeez. And for the record the rogue gpus will kill adreno 330. The ogp was released along side HTC one and s4 for the record, Philippine release sucks, HTC one just got formally released in pH, does it make it a bad buy too? Note 3 sucks – cheap ass design compared to LG g2 or xperia z ultra.
      Samsung fans are like apple dabs disgusting.
      Waiting for the xperia z ultra though yum!

  10. wtf says:

    Wrong, internal storage is 16gb, up to 64gb external sd support. I know, I just bought one from lg Philippines. The 32gb are the Korean and at&t variants.
    Comes with free flip cover, with wireless charging and magnetic wake screen ability.
    This thing shits all over the s4, battery life is outstanding, I mean really outstanding, first day of charge, 5 hours screen time 50percent brightness 16 hours standby with WiFi any gps always turned on… amazing. if you turn off throttle control, it reaches 24k antutu, 12k quadrant etc. imagine 4.2.2 on it. Very very impressed. I just bought it for giggles but now truly impressed, never thought lg could manage it, the notification led light is amazing too. It truly is, coming from an lg hater! Htc one if you want a smaller phone and this big boy if you want a phablet, s4, trash. Redeem your crown Samsung with the note 3. Careful though, Sony xperia ultra, htc one max, lg g2 might kick Samsung. Make your new exynos with your new Mali gpu, if you get snapdragon 800…too many competitors, and please a bit of design change too won’t hurt, same goes with lg optimimus pro, thank god lg g2 seems to have a good design.
    In a gist, I can attest you won’t regret this purchase it truly is an underdog. Its fantastic.
    Note: install nova or apex, lg skin is still kinda shitty like touchwiz, only sense 5 has the right shit minus the blinkfeed.

    • analog says:

      i dont think samsung will ever go back (soon) in using Mali since PowerVR has proven to be a better GPU nowadays.
