    Our friends over at Phandroid shared a video of their hands-on time with the LG Optimus G Pro at MWC. They were very impressed with the device and had nothing negative really to say about it. They especially enjoyed its "buttery smooth" performance thanks to the Snapdragon 600 chipset in the device. They also commented on the UI side of things, and came to the conclusion that if you aren't going with vanilla then the Optimus G Pro is as close to perfect as you can get. Here's a quote followed by a recap of specs:

    It's nice to see that the manufacturers can actually figure out to simply add subtle changes to the UI rather than completely redo stock Android. Here are those specs:
    • 5.5-inch 1080p HD display
    • 2GB of RAM
    • 32GB internal storage
    • 13MP shooter
    • 3,140mAh battery (removable and wireless charging compatibile)
    • Qualcomm’s newer quad-core Snapdragon S4 600 processors clocked at 1.7GHz
    • Android Jelly Bean

    Wonder if it's gonna be on Vzw? Just picked up the Note II, but I'd be willing to trade up to the 1080p screen AND the IR blaster. So cool!
