LG G Pro 2 specs

Uh yeah...that's why they said the next Nexus will be based on the G3 if LG makes it. Guess nobody wants Moto to make it anymore lol. Could've been part of the deal...

By a lot of specs you mean the processor? That's pretty much all they have in common. Different screen(by a different manufacturer), different battery, different dimensions, different styling, different camera, different OS...

Badass son!! My G Pro should be getting KitKat soon. Thinking about ditching my grandfathered unlimited data with at&t to go with tmo. What do you guys think? Am I crazy for even thinking that?
Edit: assuming that tmo gets this phone.

I dropped 3 unlimited data VZW phones and switched to Tmo a few weeks ago. Couldn't be happier and save over 100 bucks a month. I also suggest the jump program.
Note: Nexus and iPhones do not support the Wi-Fi calling feature. Had to return my Nexus 5 for the G2. I am happy with the phone and all but loved the Nexus.

I DUMPED VERIZON JUNE 2012. Now have three wonderful unlimited lines on Tmobile.
Looking to add lines 4 and 5 with the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Gear 3 in October 2014.

Let me end with my favorite line made famous ::: Plain and simple nothing beats Tmobile or Samsung period :::

I appreciate your low-key activity of late. It makes your "contributions" more pleasant

You're an idiot, and the number of "lines" you have is proof of that when the only person you're paying for, is yourself. You clearly have no clue what you're talking about and/or how to manage your money.

Haha, Richard you make me smile, lol.

I don't think LG is going to let ATT have the exclusive rights to this phone since they did such a shit job with the first G Pro. I could be wrong obviously.

I used to think I couldn't survive without unlimited data. But I'm doing fine with a 3gig plan now. Plus overage data is usually only like $20/1gb.

Also the knock code sounds awesome. You got to know the secret knock to get in to my phone

Sure it will.. But 6 months after everyone else, and they will change the back cover to some cheap easily scratchable material with a massive Verizon logo on it

Both phones are basically maxed out, the ois should give the edge to LG but other than that it just comes down to preference I suppose.

I like having an alternative to Samsung. Wish the HTC maxx was better but oh well.

Fair enough, brother.

$300 on contract
Snapdragon 600 in fall 2013(make it $200 on contract and I'd be OK with this)
They removed OIS from the camera
Only 16 GB internal storage

Yeah, I see what you guys mean, now.

Yeah back when I was first looking for a new phone for myself, I had it down to the G2, SGS4, One Maxx.

G2 and SGS4 didn't thrill me (I underrated the G2) so I waited thinking the Maxx would add a H-Pen.

Then the specs hit and I was REALLY disappointed.

Glad the series of events happened. The Note 3 is awesome as you know.

Yeah, and you saved A LOT of money from the Note 3 purchase, that you probably wouldn't have saved had you sprung for the One Max. Not to mention, you also got the 50 dollar Play Store voucher through Samsung.

The Galaxy Note 3 has true multitasking abilities and productivity options that are definitely unparalleled to any device on the market today period.

These abilities alone makes the Galaxy Note 3 the far better option over the Lg Gpro 2 and we haven't even discussed the Spen capabilities of the Note 3.

Plain and simple nothing beats Samsung or the Galaxy Note products period.

I'll agree that the Note 3 could have the edge, due to the addition of the S Pen. But, for people that just want a bigger screen device and don't need to multi-task, the G Pro 2 might be the perfect fit.

Samsung is Korean and markets to Americans just fine. :/

It's not that simple, lol. I bought the Note 3, using the JUMP program. So, unless I pay off the Note 3, I won't be switching handsets until July, at the earliest.

I will stick with the Nexus 5. Been using the X for awhile but can't put down my nexus

So a Note 3 without the S-Pen.

If the speakers are any good, it is an alternative to the Note if you just use it for media consumption. If you use it for productivity, it is just another big phone (albeit with great specs if your into that kind of thing)

I'm pretty sure, the speakers are probably on-par or slightly better than the Note 3, but definitely not "Boom Sound" quality.

I'm not so sure. The g2 speakers didn't compare to the s4. Although note 3 doesn't either. But it's still louder than the g2. Hope LG fixed this on the pro

We'll see. I didn't know the S4 had better speakers than the G2 and Note 3.

Looks like a beast, if I didn't allready have my G2 I would definitely grab one of these. I had read on another article that this phone will have the best sounding speakers on the market? Not sure if it's true with the placement of the speakers but I guess we will have to wait for the reviews.

How are you liking your G2? I picked mine up in January when I dropped Verizon and switched to T-Mobile, and I'm very impressed and content with the device. I'm more interested in seeing what the G3 has to offer. I'm also glad that I opted for the G2 over the Nexus 5 for battery life alone. LG's UI is decent, and hopefully we'll see a few improvements once it's updated to kitkat.

Nice!! Would love to see the performance/speed with the 802.11AC wifi. Overall, it seems great. Can't wait to get my hands on one.

Wow, a company other than Samsung is still making a smartphone where the battery is user-accessible, I'm shocked!

Posted via Android Central App

Yeah, I was kinda shocked to see the removable battery and the SD card slot.

My galaxy note 3 might be taking a back seat on this one it looks real nice. Those specs were something I thought the HTC one Max was going to look like
