You can find a mini-changelog below, but similar to the G Flex and G2 updates, the G Pro will see a restyled status bar for Kit Kat, stronger security, Immersive Mode, improved battery performance, cloud print settings, and even better processing speed. The update should also include NFC Tap&Pay for mobile payments, lock screen media art, Emoji, and more. (more…)

In the mood for a smartphone deal? AT&T is currently hosting a “special” offer on LG’s popular Optimus G line of smartphones. The Optimus G Pro is available now (on 2-year contract) for $99, while the Optimus G can be had for $49. We’re told that the sale is limited, running from today through July 25.
The Optimus G Pro, as you know, is LG’s Galaxy Note 2 competitor, yet boasts better specs like a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 13MP camera, and quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor. The Optimus G on the other hand is last year’s flagship from LG that turned out to be the template for Google’s Nexus 4. Each phone is great in its own way, but more importantly shows that LG should be taken seriously in the smartphone game going forward.

As a follow-up to our Mother’s Day contest, we have partnered once again with AT&T for another giveaway, only this time we’re rewarding the fathers in the building. With Father’s Day approaching this weekend, we wanted to once again hand an LG Optimus G Pro to lucky DL reader.
The Optimus G Pro is LG’s newest flagship, and is in the oversized phone business of competing with Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2. It runs a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, has a 5.5″ FHD (1080p, 400ppi) display, and an “advanced” 13MP camera on the backside. It also runs Android 4.1, can last all day on its 3140mAh battery, contains 32GB of internal storage (plus a microSD slot for expansion), and connects to AT&T’s extra speedy LTE network. It may not have an S Pen, but it has an advanced set of software features built specifically with a big screen in mind.
You can buy the LG Optimus G pro from AT&T today for $199 on new contract.

It’s almost Mother’s Day! This means it’s that time of year to thank mom for her hard work in managing the everyday life of a family with a bigger and clearer connection to everything important to her. See where we are going here? If she had a phone like the LG Optimus G Pro with its 5.5″ 1080p display, quad-core processor, multi-tasking capabilities, and brilliant 13MP camera, she could maintain her amazing motherly self in a much more efficient manner. Or she could simply rock out with a sweet new smartphone that’s probably better than yours. (more…)
LG is still hosting an event this evening in NYC to reveal their plans for the Optimus G Pro, but AT&T has gone ahead this morning and ruined some of the surprise. The device is coming to AT&T as an exclusive (yes, another one) on May 10 for $199 on new 2-year contract. You can pre-order the device from May 3 if you’d like. Should you choose to pre-order, you’ll receive a free Quick Cover black folio case.
For those not familiar, the Optimus G Pro is a lot like the Galaxy Note 2 in terms of size, but 1-ups Samsung’s big boy by using a 5.5″ full HD IPS display (1920×1080, 400ppi), 13MP rear camera, Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, and 3140mAh battery. It also has 2.1MP front camera, runs Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean), and features a suite of LG-inspired multi-tasking software. There is no S Pen, though.
If you were interested in this device, how are you feeling about this being an AT&T exclusive? (more…)

We are putting our bets on the device’s specs to not change too much from the Korean version, which is one beast of a device. (more…)
