LG recently unveiled its flagship smartphone, the Optimus G Pro boasting of really fine specifications. But even though the large screen phone looks good on paper, can it take on the likes of current popular smartphones in the market like the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Apple iPhone 5? Read on to know more:
LG Optimus G Pro: LG’s flagship phone has a 5.5-inch full HD display with a resolution of 1080X1920 pixels. But it’s not just the screen size that’s big on this phone – it comes with a powerful 1.7 GHz quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM and runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. What’s more, it has a powerful 13 MP rear camera and a 2.1 MP front-facing camera, both of which can record videos at 1080p resolution. LG has put in 32 GB of internal storage and there’s a microSD card slot if you need more space. And there’s also a massive 3,140 mAh battery so that you don’t need to reach for the charger too often.
Nokia Lumia 920: Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone 8 based smartphone features a 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 768X1280 pixels. In terms of power, its dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor and 1 GB of RAM seem inadequate in comparison to the Optimus G Pro. Nokia has put in an 8 MP rear camera with Carl Zeiss optics to keep the shutterbugs happy with this phone; there’s also 1.3 MP front-facing camera. The 2,000 mAh battery gives this phone a talktime of 10 hours on 3G networks.
Apple iPhone 5: The iPhone 5 wasn’t exactly the most popular smartphone launched last year, mostly because of its 4-inch screen with a resolution of 640X1136 pixels. In addition to the rather small screen, its dual-core 1.2 GHz Apple A6 processor and 1 GB of RAM also make it seem less powerful than the current range of Android phones like the Optimus G Pro. Apple has put in an 8 MP rear camera and a 1.2 MP front-facing camera in the iPhone 5 as well as a rather tiny 1,440 mAh battery which can offer up to 8 hours of talktime on 3G networks.
