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.
