The LG Optimus G Pro has 16/32 GB storage options along with 64 GB expandability via microSD card. A 13 MP rear camera and a 2.1 MP front camera enable full HD video recording and LG was also the first to show off dual camera features with the LG Optimus G Pro, right before Samsung launched the S4 into the market. 

“LG’s Optimus G Pro sets a new benchmark in the over 5-inch display smartphone category which is catching on with consumers everywhere who aren’t interested in owning both a phone and a tablet,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Asian customers are leading many of today’s technology trends and we’re confident Optimus G Pro will find a large following in this region.”

Its a gr8 phone.. the best part is the heavy processor & long battery.. particularly the mammoth battery as i've seen all samsung users typically searching for charging points after 8-10 hrs which should not be the case with G pro..

this one is a good mobile !!! but i feel ppl will prefer Note 2 over this, as the price is already down for Note 2 !!! the exchange offer is on, and it is priced under 30000 !!! LG branded as non-supportive in terms of updates, unless it prices the product under 35000 or close to the Note 2's !!! they cant see any sales !!!
