LG Reveals Optimus G Pro

Yesterday, we looked at Samsung's Galaxy Note 8.0. Today, we are evaluating a competitor of the Galaxy Note 2 (the smaller version of the Galaxy Note 8.0)- the LG Optimus G Pro. Both are phablets, that is a tablet and a phone combined. Click here for more information on phablets.

This is LG's second Optimus G model. So, what's new about this Pro model? The device itself remains similar 6 inches high, 3 inches wide and .37 inches thick. This provides the same sleek and light design. For those looking for a lighter phone, the Optimus G Pro is just half a pound in weight.

However, the new about this phone comes in its features. LG has improved the camera and has a fun feature that allows for two-way video recording. That's right, you can record yourself while recording something in front of you!

Another new feature is collaboration tool that allows two Optimus G Pro phone's to share screens. Speaking of screens, the 1080p screen on the Optimus G Pro looks amazing and is probably the phone's best feature.

So, how does this new phone impact you? Well, this phablet will be available as a phone in the United States (unlike the Galaxy Note 8.0). Also, it will offer competition to the Galaxy Note 2 (and the Galaxy Note 3 when it is released this summer. This will mean lower prices on both models as both compete for the U.S. market.

While the LG Optimus G Pro is not perfect, it's screen and two-way video recording may be game-changers that become standard on phones in the near future. LG has not discussed the price on the Optimus G Pro as of yet.
