Whether it is about impressing the sycophantic analysts or its numerous loyal customers, the Samsung’s Note 2 “phablet” has succeeded in making its mark—ever since its launch in September 2012
However, the popular 5.5-inch Note 2 is now gearing up to face competition from AT&T’s LG Optimus G Pro, which is waiting in the wings for its U.S. release in the third quarter of 2013. As per Get Mobile, the much acclaimed LG Optimus G Pro has managed to pass through the FCC, en-route to AT&T’s network.
The two rivals have much to compare. They both boast of a 5.5-inch screen size. However, the LG Optimus Pro G is all set to click pictures with its full 1080p resolution, while the Note 2 features a 720p resolution display. Apart from providing its users with clearer videos and pictures, the LG Optmus Pro G is also packed with a 1.9 GHz Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor. In comparison–the Note 2 possesses a 1.6 GHz quad-core processor.
As far as the OS is concerned, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean sits tight on the LG Optimus Pro G, while the Samsung model has Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The reports about the pricing and carriers are yet t trickle in. However, its FCC filing is signaling a Ma Bell release in the near future.
We are all wondering–will the Note 2 maintain its supreme position or will it be trumped by the enhanced features of LG’s Optimus Pro G?… Read the rest
Yesterday we told you about the latest details on LG’s upcoming flagship, the Optimus G Pro. From what we’ve heard, there’s no denying the fab factor LG has put into this smartphone. And it could probably hit the markets soon, so if you’ve fallen in love with the phone, gear yourself for its launch. But, we wonder what it could mean for the BlackBerry Z10. Now, the BlackBerry 10 launch did receive a lot of positive attention, however, we’re not sure if that’s enough for users to move away from Android and towards the BlackBerry 10. With one more spectacular Android device coming into the market, how does the BlackBerry Z10 fare?
LG Optimus G Pro: Based on the latest rumors, this one’s a mammoth device, and we don’t just mean in its physical size. The Optimus G Pro is expected to have a 5.5-inch full HD display with a resolution of 1080X1920 pixels. It will be powered by a quad-core 1.7 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM, multitasking extremely easily. In addition, there is a huge 3140 mAh battery keeping this device running for longer time on a single charge. In terms of camera too, it surpasses the BlackBerry Z10 with its 13 MP rear camera and 2 MP front-facing camera. The Optimus G Pro will have 32 GB of internal storage as well as a microSD card slot which can take up to 64 GB of extra space.
BlackBerry Z10: In terms of specs, we hate to break it to you, but the BlackBerry Z10 isn’t anywhere as powerful as the Optimus G Pro. And it’s not just the 4.2-inch screen with its resolution of 1280X768 pixels. The BlackBerry Z10 is powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and 2 GB of RAM. The internal storage provided in the BlackBerry Z10 is also just 16 GB, and although there is a microSD card slot, that just gives you another 32 GB of storage space. The 1800 mAh battery is also far smaller than that of the Optimus G Pro, which means you’d be running for a charger sooner with this phone. The Z10 is fitted with an 8 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front-facing camera. And of course, the most doubtful aspect, its OS – the BlackBerry 10. It’s much newer, and even though it promises a whole lot of features, it’s got just over 70,000 apps in its app store.… Read the rest
