At Antutu it didn't quite manage to come on top, but it still posted a great score of over 20,000 points, while Quadrant saw the LG Optimus G Pro score another victory.

Reviews Word on the street for the LG Optimus G Pro


8.0
It's LG's best Android phone to date, and we're impressed at the rapid progress they show here in both hardware and software.

8.5
The colors are vibrant, viewing angles are excellent, and the display is sufficiently bright for comfortable use outside under direct sunlight.

Overall

8.4 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

Displays of 5+ inches in diagonal and 1080p resolution are all the rage now and we are seeing new models touting those cropping up every month.
by GSM Arena (Feb, 2013)
LG now has Samsung's Smart Stay thing - you look at the screen, the display never times out.
by Android Police (Apr, 2013)
The extra sharpness and total resolution also contribute to what is certainly the best LG screen to date.
by GSM Arena (Feb, 2013)

Video

The phone has an excellent full HD IPS display that's viewable outdoors and is particularly well suited for reading text.
by MobileTechReview (May, 2013)
So, the big one LG likes to flaunt is the video app.
by Android Police (Apr, 2013)
Multimedia The pictures and video gallery sports a pretty standard grid look with your media neatly arranged in tiled folders.
by PhoneArena (Mar, 2013)

Camera

The 13MP camera sensor, the LED flash and the loudspeaker grille are here.
by GSM Arena (Feb, 2013)
We see improvement here over the 13MP camera on some Optimus G variants from last year, and it takes truly lovely and natural looking photos.
by MobileTechReview (May, 2013)
The G Pro even has manual focus mode, something its competitors lack - you actually get a slider bar to set the focal length.
by Android Police (Apr, 2013)

Apps

You can enable application autostartup, so the calendar/email/music player/ tasks/weather app launches when the alarm goes off.
by GSM Arena (Mar, 2013)
Software: LG's latest UI overlay adds yet more features (and no, they're not all Samsung clones), including an increased focused on QSlide apps, which are essentially pop-up apps.
by Android Police (Apr, 2013)
The calendar supports QSlide so you can check your schedule while writing an email without having to switch between apps all the time.
by GSM Arena (Mar, 2013)

Resolution

Display LG has supplied a brilliant 5.5” Full HD 1080 x 1920 pixels screen on the Optimus G Pro, and the screen's pixel density of 401ppi, while not as high as the 441ppi of the Full HD 5-inchers, is one of the best you can currently get.
by PhoneArena (Mar, 2013)
And the beautiful and lively 5.5-inch 1080p screen is great for both productivity and media consumption.
by GSM Arena (Feb, 2013)
It's well capable of recording them at full HD resolution, and we shot an HDR sample as well.
