The Galaxy Note 3 has been the undisputed leader in the phablet arena. For users who are looking for a little more variety in the phablet marketplace, there is good news in the form of LG’s recent launch, the feature-rich G Pro 2. In this article we take a quick look at the comparative features or tech specs of the two devices.
LG G Pro 2 versus Galaxy Note 3
The LG G Pro 2 comes with the latest Android OS (Kitkat) and is powered by Qualcomm quad-core processor. It has a 5.9 inch full HD display with 1920×1080 resolution. Its highlights are the video and camera features such as the 4K ultra HD video capture, 20-photo burst mode, an 86000+ code combination capability for its Knock On screen unlocking feature, as well as others that include a dual browser, mini view, and content locking. The biggest drawback to the LG G Pro 2 is the lack of a stylus, which would have made navigating the big broad screen a lot easier.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on the other hand comes with Android Jelly Bean and is powered by Exynos 5420 Octa-core chipset (3G variant). It has a 5.7-inch full HD screen with 1920×1080 resolution. Unlike the G Pro 2, the Note 3 comes with a stylus and its prominent let down is probably the rather unclassy-looking look.
