Some time ago, we were invited to preview the Optimus G Pro Smartphone at the Patisserie G @ Millennia Walk, and we had the opportunity to touch, feel, and play with the Optimus G Pro Smartphone.

The Optimus G Pro is the first smartphone in Singapore with a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display and it has double the resolution compared to a HD IPS display. With the immersive Full HD IPS display on the Optimus G Pro, it offers users an optimal image quality.
The Optimus G Pro sports a very urban and sleek look and with its crystal reflection, the Optimus G Pro is stunningly attractive as well. Available in two colours, Indigo Black and Lunar White, the Optimus G Pro has a size of 150.2mm X 76.14mm X 9.4mm and weighs 172g. Due to its slim design, the Optimus G Pro allows users to have an optimal grip that fits perfectly into their hands.
Utilizing the latest advanced technology, the Optimus G Pro features an array of multi-dimensional user experience [UX] features that enhance the users’ engagement with the smartphone and we really like a few of them. In case you’re wondering, some of the UX features like the QSlide 2.0 are already available on the LG Optimus G Smartphone.
The QSlide 2.0 function allows users to overlay two different screens simultaneously on one display. This hence allows users to do two things at once, such as send a text message or search the web while also watching a video.
The Optimus G Pro is the world’s first smartphone that is equipped with an all-in-one remote control. To use this function, users just have to register the home appliances into the Optimus G Pro and thereafter, the user can control the electronic devices through infrared signal. The QuickRemote supports up to nine home electronics or appliances such as TV sets, set-top boxes, air conditioners, audio visual equipments, projectors and blu-ray players from a variety of brands. This is definitely one UX feature of the Optimus G Pro that we really love!
With advanced eye recognition technology, Smart Video recognizes the position of the viewer’s eyes and automatically plays or stops the video without any manual input from the user.
Dual Camera and Dual Recording
The Dual Camera and Dual Recording functions allow users to capture pictures or videos with both the front and rear cameras simultaneously. Users can now partake in the video during any special moments and capture all the wonderful expression made from both sides of the camera.
The VR Panorama function allows the creation of seamless and picturesque 360° view of scenic shots horizontally and vertically.
Pause and Resume Recording
The Pause and Resume Recording feature allows for the recording of short snippets of videos which can then be viewed as one uninterrupted video, thereby reducing the time and effort taken to string the clips together to form a continuous running clip. This is a rather useful UX feature that will come in handy for users whom are constantly producing videos as it will cut short the time needed for video-editing.
In addition to all these wonderful UX features that are available on the Optimus G Pro, the swift 1.7 GHz Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ quad-core processor enhances the processing power of the smartphone by up to 24%! This hence supports data transfers and the launch of resource-intensive applications at blazing fast speed.
The Optimus G Pro runs on the Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 platform and has a 2GB DDR RAM and an onboard memory capacity of 16GB. The memory capacity is expandable with a microSD card of up to 64GB. The Optimus G Pro uses the MicroSIM card and it supports 4G mobile networks.
The Li-Ion battery on the Optimus G Pro is removable and has a capacity of 3140mAh. This is the largest battery capacity for a 5.5-inch smartphone. Besides charging the smartphone using the USB cable, the Optimus G Pro can also be charged using a wireless charging dock that is sold separately. As such, you can charge the Optimus G Pro conveniently anywhere, any time.
With the growing demand for 4G smartphones, the Optimus G Pro smartphone is a phone not to be missed as it supports all LTE frequency bands. This makes it compatible with any 4G LTE network in the world. With a quad-band mobile antenna, the Optimus G Pro is able to secure the fastest LTE speeds, supporting both 2×2 and 4×2 multiple-input-multiple-output [MIMO] channel configuration. Hence, it is no surprise that the LG Optimus G Pro was awarded the Best LTE Device/Handset Award at the LTE World Summit 2013 that took place at Amsterdam.
