The LG Optimus G Pro comes to the U.S. on AT&T Video Transcript
Hello, everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET here. And today, I have with me an LG Optimus G Pro from AT&T. Now, we already took a look at this handset back in March when it debuted at MWC in Spain. But that was an unlocked version. Aside from a few design changes and the absence of a TV antenna, however, the U.S. model is pretty much identical to its global counterpart. Around its edges, you'll get a nice faux-metallic trimming, and on the left side here is a shortcut key to launch the note-taking app, QuickMemo. AT&T's G Pro still has the gorgeous 5.5-inch full HD IPS display with a 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution, 400ppi, and a 16:9 aspect ratio. As for camera options, it has a 13-megapixel camera that can shoot 1080p full HD video, and a front-facing 2.1-megapixel camera. Some features include dual recording mode, which lets you record with both cameras simultaneously; HDR shooting and time catch, which lets you take photos before you press the shutter. Now, the 4G LTE device is powered by a 1.7 gigaHertz quad-core CPU. Along with the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4, the G Pro is one of the first U.S. phones to feature the super fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor. Once you open the battery door, you'll be able to access the handset's removable 3.14 ampere-hour battery. Now, we haven't conducted a battery drain test yet on this model, but the unlocked version yielded about 7 hours straight of video playback and a whooping 22 hours of talk time. Lastly, the device runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. So, you'll get a bunch of your standard Google features like Chrome, Messenger, and the search-based digital assistant, Google Now. Additional features include 2 gigs of RAM, 32 gigs of onboard storage, and 64 gigs of expandable storage via a microSD card and NFC. If you're interested, the phone will be available on May 10 for $199.99 with a two-year contract. And if you're really eager, preorders begin on May 3rd. Again, I'm Lynn, and you've been checking out AT&T's LG Optimus G Pro.

LG Optimus G Pro (AT&T) Review
The good: The 4G LTE LG Optimus G Pro is reasonably priced and has an impressively fast Snapdragon 600 processor, and its expansive screen is sharp and bright.
The bad: The Optimus G Pro's size will prove too big for some, and battery reserves drain quickly.
The bottom line: Though it lacks a stylus, the Optimus G Pro is not only armed with high-end specs, but it's also still cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 -- making it the best AT&T phablet available now.
