4:26 /

It's light. It's thin. The LG Optimus Pro is a beauty to unbox with a sharp and crisp display.

-So, last week, we had the HTC One. It was awesome, so cool. -You wanted a bigger phone. -I wanted a bigger phone and-- -Guess what? -LG has delivered-- -We got a big phone. -Looks like a-- -Okay, feels [unk]. It's okay. -Yeah, now, this is serious business. -Looks like a PC box. -Yeah. -The LG Optimus G Pro is inside here. That's a fancy box. -Yes. -Let's do it. -Let's unbox this fancy box. -I know. Do we need a knife or can we peel? -I need a knife. -I think so. -Can we do it? Yes, we did. -It's like a jewelry. -Oh, yeah. Now, that is a bigger phone. It's awesome. -Wow! That's enormous. -That's pretty big actually. -Look at this guy. -That's pretty large. Pretty large-- -Oh, my goodness. -pretty large phone. -Well, clearly the better, isn't it? 'Cause it weighs nothing. -Oh, wow. The bat-- Well, the battery is huge, which we'll tell you about in a minute. -Huh. -Oh, look, we have our cute like-- -It's like a tile backsplash. -We have our cute Korean manual. Oh, it has cartoons. -You did not. -I did. -You did. Oh, oh, my gosh. Is that-- -Oh, my God, that's rad! -Yeah, like ask and you shall receive. There is in fact, a little Gangnam-style picture in the-- -Do you see the cool like tile backsplash? -Huh! Ooh. -Or backings? -It's like the Matrix, but in snowy white. -We got 500-- -Oh, that's pretty. -points of something. -Five hundred points of something in Korean. -QuadBeat earphones. -Awesome. -Because dual beat is just too-- too few. -If we were doing a show right now, I totally have [unk]. All right, we got our mini-USB cable. -Here's the battery. -The battery is-- Oh, it comes with two. -Those batteries-- -That's a nice touch. -That's a nice touch. -All right, let's throw all those batteries in here. Switch this thing on. -This is-- Oh, can you-- can you charge the battery by itself? -Wooh. That used to be like a $50 accessory for various phones. -That's very cool. Huh. -Nice. -Just stick it right in. -And you always have a spare, ready to go. I love that. -Amazing. -Let's turn it on. -It's ginormous! -It's not that big. -It is. It's ginormous. It's officially ginormous. -It's not that big. It's no big deal. Come on! Oh, oh, there we go. -There you go. -The bottom button flashes two different colors. Look. -Oh. -It's flashing [unk]. Now, you know. -Ready to go to the raves. -SK Telecom full HD technology. That's a little raver. -This is-- -Soon to be-- -very Korean phone. -Well, yeah. -I mean it's-- That's [unk]. -Buddy intervention. All right, we're going to attempt to go through a Korean language setup which should be fun for everybody, but you, meanwhile, will get the specs. The LG Optimus G Pro has a 5.5-inch full HD IPS screen. That screen has a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution at 400 pixels per inch. It is, in some, a very nice screen. -It has a Snapdragon 1.7 gigahertz quad-core processor and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It's a big phone, 5.87 inches tall and 3 inches wide. -It has micro-USB, micro-SIM, and microSD card slots and 2 gigs of RAM to power the processor. -The front-facing camera is 2 megapixels and the rear-facing camera is an impressive 13 megapixels with flash. -The Optimus G Pro supports NFC and it's also capable of wireless charging. -The battery in this phone is large too, 3140 milliamps per hour. -LG says the handset will last seven hours with video playback and that you'll get 22 hours of talk-time. We'll obviously test that, but those are pretty impressive claims. It's also, as if you needed more, 4G LTE capable. You can't-- He can't stop looking on it. -Do you-- Is it just in my head that Dreamweaver is playing? 'Cause I'm falling for the phone. -Because it's the perfect phone. I have the Note II here to compare. -Is the brightness down on that phone 'cause this seems brighter in-- -Because the screen on there is just-- -It's gorgeous. -amazing. And you can tell because of the size of the screen. I'm telling you. I am starting to think of this is the perfect phone. Samsung may announce the Note III shortly after, and then, we'll see, but this phone is rocking my world. I don't-- -It's-- It's [unk]. It is. -I know. We have a phablet convert on our hands. -I want it.
