It's a battle between two large smartphones!  Available exclusively at AT&T, the LG Optimus G Pro features a 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 CPU, 5.5-inch 1080p IPS HD display, 2 GB of RAM, 13-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 3,140 mAh battery, and 4G LTE connectivity on AT&T (though the international version, used in this video, does not feature LTE in the US).  The US variant is available exclusively at AT&T.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II features a 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos processor, 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 3,100 mAh battery, and Android 4.1 with TouchWiz.  It's available at AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular.

The LG Optimus G Pro has better hardware features, but the Note II's software goodies and S Pen, along with availability on more carriers, make it very attractive.  Which one is the must-have tabletphone?  Part 1 of 2.
