AT&T LG Optimus G Pro Review

AT&T LG Optimus G Pro Review

The LG Optimus G Pro brings a massive upgrade to the LG Optimus G, a device put together so well that Google decided to use it for its most recent hero smartphone, the Nexus 4.

The demonstration came from Mobile World Congress 2013 where LG had an LG Optimus G connected (wirelessly) to a rather high definition LG television, playing a fabulous first-person game to show the instantaneousness of the transfer of information.
