Build Quality, Design and Form Factor

The build quality of this device is quite good but if we compare it with Lg Optimus G it does not feel the same, it may feel plastic but on the other hand the good quality of plastic back cover also helps on decreasing the weight upto 172 gram which is definitely a good plus point for a device like this which has 5.5 inch display size. The design of the device is good with thin bezel which gives maximum attention to the big display and the rounded edges makes it easy to hold the device in hands. The form factor is quite comparable to the other devices like Note 2 although LG Optimus G Pro is thinner than note 2.

Display, Memory and Battery Backup

The display is quite sharp and crisp in terms of pixels with 401 which is quite high pixel density for a display of this size. The colors of the display are really good and life like. The in built storage of the device is around 16 GB out of which you get around 10 Gb available to the user, you also have memory card slot to expand the storage of the device. The battery on this device is quite big in size and it gives good overall backup time to a moderate user.
