Last year was little bit good for LG’s smartphone department as their flagship phone was successful in getting huge bunch of customers for them. Yes, I’m talking about the LG G2 only but now it’s the talk of past as company had already launched LG G Pro 2 which is an upgraded version of previous year flagship model. Let see if it got the potential to help out LG brand this year as well or not.
Customers are getting aware this year. I saw this change as users were finding Moto X and Nexus 5 smartphones better than other super branded phones from Samsung, Sony or any other brand. This simply means that customer want a better user experience not highly advertised big specs sheet. LG G Pro 2 stands out on this expectation a bit though.
LG G Pro 2 Review
I’m starting with the LG G Pro 2 review so that you can know whether this phone is right for you or not. I’ve already mentioned in the title itself that this phone is tomorrow’s phablet super phone which means it got the specs to compete with phones already launched and about to launch later this year.

There are no physical buttons in front and it’s a clean piece of glass in front which has got gorgeous display of size 5.9 inch. The front design is elegant and eye catching. You’ll find speaker on the top, neighbored by front facing camera and the LG branding at the down.
There are no side buttons and neither at the top. You’ll find microphones and a 3.5mm audio jack at the top while microUSB port at the bottom. Volume rocker and power button are placed on the back, just like LG G2. This feels little awkward as users are not used to of that experience but it offers better user experience as we can operate phone by single hand. Back is made of plastic which doesn’t provide a luxury feel.
You will give all marks to LG G Pro 2 for its display, you have to. It got 5.9 inch of display added on True IPS + LCD capacitive touchscreen which offers resolution of 1080×1920 pixels (full HD). The pixel density is near to 373 and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
The full HD display looks perfect at any viewing angles and bright under direct sunlight as well. Colors look perfect and you won’t find a single complaint in its display.
It’s a power booster. Phone is powered by Snapdragon 800 chipset which is clocked at 2.26GHz and got quad-core CPU inside along with Adreno 330 GPU. The processor is supported by 3GB of RAM along with 16/32GB of internal storage.
This combination of CPU offers great performance and you won’t find a single lag even while playing top notch quality of games and doing multitasking at your best. This processor from Qualcomm has been doing all good since it came out and the same thing is going in case of LG G Pro 2 as well.
It runs on Android 4.4.2 (KitKat OS) which is added with Optimus UI. The software skin developed by LG looks matured than before now and overall it was better user experience than the last year flagship model. Users can increase storage up to 64GB using microSD card.

It supports LTE off course for fastest wireless data connectivity along with dual band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC. It supports USB host and USB on-the-go features too. So there is not a single complaint you’re going to file in this department.
The rear facing 13MP camera is just the same as of last year model. Its supported by same single LED flash and supports auto focus, optical image stabilization, panorama and HDR like features which are getting common these days.
Front facing 2.1MP camera sounds old for now as many phones are getting 5MP sensor at the front for better selfie quality. The picture quality with rear camera was good but camera software still can’t get best of it.
With 3200mAh battery inside, it can easily run for a single day on general smartphone usage but on power usage, it can last for 13 hours which proves that it offers super classy battery life.
Right now, this phone deservers all better ratings and I can recommend it to anyone unless he got problem with rear power and volume control buttons.
