LG Optimus G Pro (unlocked) Review
The good: The LG Optimus G Pro packs a sharp and crisp display, a blazing Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, and Android Jelly Bean.
The bad: The Optimus G Pro's hefty size can be cumbersome to handle and it doesn't come with a stylus.
The bottom line: Though it lacks a stylus and it won't fit everyone's lifestyle, the LG Optimus G Pro's beautiful touch screen and ultrafast CPU do this handset justice.
