Since smartphones have become the ‘most important’ device in people’s lives, every smartphone company has been constantly in R&D to try and manufacture new phones with new features to capture the market. LG Electronics is one such company that has been releasing phones in various sizes, trying to boost its product portfolio to draw in customers. LG has been specially giving Samsung direct competition by releasing similar phones within the same time frame. The LG Optimus G Pro is the successor to the original LG Optimus G and resembles the Samsung Galaxy Note II in size and features. The phone has already been announced and launched in Korea, with launch date yet to be released for the rest of the world.

The LG Optimus G Pro has major updates to its predecessor, the LG Optimus G. The device sports a massive 5.5-inch True Full HD IPS touch screen with multi-touch capability and a pixel density of 401 ppi. The screen is truly amazing in viewing and the bigger screen is perfect for multi-purpose use (things people usually whip out their tablets or laptops for). The high resolution ensures crisp and sharp images, while the phone has great viewing angles. The large screen also ensures that the device is hard to hold and function with one hand. The G Pro has a sleek plastic chassis, which makes it a slippery when trying to maneuver single-handedly. However, the plastic chassis does not make the phone weak; in fact it is very resilient. LG has made it a bit easier by placing the power and the volume buttons on the right side of the device, rather than placing the power button on the top. Operating the phone requires the person holds the phone in one hand and operates using the other.

Under the hood, the phone is powered by 1.7 GHz Quad-core Snapdragon 600, making it pretty fast and speedy. The device can handle running multiple operations as well as high-res games, without major glitches. The device offers internal memory capacity of 32 GB, which can be expanded further using the microSD slot by 64 GB. The device provides 2 GB worth of RAM, decreasing the lagging effect when running too many apps. The device comes with an NFC, Infrared port, USB and Wi-Fi hotspot capability. The Infrared port ensures that the phone can be made into a remote for any supporting device, while the hot-spot allows the person to share internet with others.

The device houses a 13 MP primary camera for picture taking that supports 4208 x 3120 pixels, and a 2.1 MP secondary camera for video conferencing or calls. The camera is pretty decent in terms of taking hi-res, sharp photos, however, according to The Verge review; the camera has a tendency of washing out colors from the images. The huge viewfinder on the device is great for taking images. Both the cameras have the ability to take videos at [email protected] One pretty nifty feature on the phone is the Dual-recording feature (similar to the one on the S4), which allows the user to record videos simultaneously from both of the camera. Another feature that is boasted by the company is the Virtual Reality Panorama shot that allows the user to take images and stitch them together for 360 degree panorama shots (this feature is very similar to the Photo Shoot on the Nexus 4).

The device houses a massive Li-Po 3140 mAh battery that is removable, a must feature for many smartphone lovers. The company has yet to release the official data about the Talktime and the Stand-by time offered by the phone. LG has also added the QSlide apps and the QButton feature on the phone. The QSlide apps are widgets that allow the user to do multiple jobs on the same screen, such as take notes, see the calendar, check e-mail and can also allow the user to watch a video and text at the same time. A similar feature is available in the Note II, but it the system only allows the user to access limited apps on the phone. The QButton located on the left side of the device allows the user to access any apps on the phone by pressing the button. The device is yet to hit other shores and prices will also be announced accordingly with the release dates.

HTC is a popular smartphone company and has been touted for many beautifully designed phones. The phones are smart, sleek and to the point with no extra marketing gimmick. HTC maintains this with the launch of the HTC One X+. The HTC One X+ is a new phone that shares many similarities to its big brother the HTC One X; however, it also shines in many places where the predecessor shied. The HTC One X+ is basically an upgraded version of the HTC One X and hit the market in November 2012.

The HTC One X+ sports a 4.7-inch super LCD 2 touch screen with approximately 312 ppi pixel density, meaning the screen is pretty awesome and it does not show any pixels. The screen has excellent resolution and shows sharp and crisp clear photos and videos. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2 that keeps it from getting minor day-to-day scratches. The device is sleek and thin in general, but has put on a little extra weight (5 grams) compared to the original One X. The phone is covered in a soft-touch polycarbonate plastic chassis that has smooth curved corners. The soft matte plastic makes it easy to grip the phone and keeps it from slipping through the fingers. The phone comes incorporated with the HTC Sense UI v4+, which is basically a combination of the HTC Sense and Jelly Bean. The combination of the two provides additional features such as: Google Now, Voice search, faster screen navigation, new gallery app (organizes photos by events and location) and HTC Get Started (allows PC to configure the phone faster).

The device is powered by 1.7 GHz Quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 process making it faster than the original HTC One X. The faster processor allows seamless transitions between apps and makes the device smooth to work with. There was no hindering or jerking when operating the device.  The One X+ comes installed with Android v4.1 (Jelly Bean) right out of the box. The device comes with 32 and 64 GB internal storage capacity that is not expandable and 1 GB RAM.

The device houses an 8 MP rear camera with auto focus, LED flash, and BSI sensor, along with a 1.6 MP front camera for video conferencing. The front camera also has a countdown features that counts down to the moment the picture is being taken to ensure that the user is camera ready. The camera comes with many additional features that help the phone stand out against all the other devices. The features include: F2.0 aperture and 28mm lens, Dedicated HTC ImageChip, VideoPic, Continuous shooting, Smart Flash, Sightseeing mode, Video stabilization, Slow motion video capture and playback and ImageSense. The ImageSense allows the phone to take faster and the best photos under any lighting. The VideoPic is a new feature that allows users to take images while recording a video as well as taking an image when playing an already recorded video. The Smart Flash provides five levels of flash that adjust automatically when trying to take a shot, while the Sightseeing mode allows the camera to be handy during outings, so that it can be easily accessible.

The device houses a non-removable 2100 mAh Lithium-ion Polymer battery, which according to tests by many review website, dies pretty quickly. When fully-working the battery does not even last a whole day. However, no official data has been released by the company regarding the Talk-time and the Stand-by time. The company has also added the Beats Audio sound enhancement to its speakers as well as headset and it can be turned on and off by the user. The phone has been a popular hit with many that require a good sturdy budgeted phone with an excellent camera.
