"A diamond in the rough"

So I thought I would hate this phone but it turns out this phone is amazing!! So glad my friend talked me into trying it. Here are some reasons why I think this phone beats out the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Note 2.
As far as phablets go I didn't want anything to do with them but being a phone aholic I tried the Note 2 out for about 2 weeks. It was too wide for my liking. My hands are not big but I have long fingers and when I held the Note 2 in my hands it felt very uncomfortable. After using it on a regular basis it actually made my carpal tunnel act up. The screen wasn't spectacular and the volume was horrible. I missed 90% of my calls and messages because I couldn't hear it go off in my purse. I actually had to hook up one of those boom cubes to it so I wouldn't miss important phone calls. I also detected some lag when moving from screen to screen. There wasn't a smooth transition between them. The camera was horrible in my opinion. The shutter speed was slow and often the pictures I took were out of focus.
Now the S4 I actually loved and didn't think I would ever trade it for anything but maybe the S5 when it came out. It had an above average camera and the screen was nice and bright and crisp. The transition from screen to screen wasn't as smooth as I would have liked it to be but it was better then the Note 2. So now pros and cons
I'm only comparing the S4 and the Optimus G pro since I had the S4 for a longer period of time.

Pros
Better screen ( I find it a lot more vibrant then the S4)
Sound , it's so much louder... I'm not missing any phone calls or messages.
Better UI, even though I love Samsung I hate Touch wiz.
Camera is amazing, fast shutter speed and haven't experienced any fuzzy pictures.
I love the shortcut button on the side.
I also get better reception.
The LED around the home button is a nice addition

Cons
Size , wish it was 5 inches
The capacitive buttons are backwards lol

Conclusion
I'm glad I switched, this phone has definitely been under rated.
