Ahead of the Mobile World Congress happening in Barcelona at the end of this month, LG has taken the covers off the Optimus G Pro featuring a 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) curved glass display that pushes a pixel density of over 400ppi. LG says the curved glass creates a “2.5D” effect as well — whatever that means. The G Pro also packs an unspecified quad-core processor (which is pretty standard for most top-end devices nowadays).
Not much else has been revealed so you can expect full details at MWC. You can also expect the device to be available in Malaysia sometime before May, hopefully.
Is it just us or does the Optimus G Pro looks too much like a Galaxy Note II?
UPDATE: Check out our Sony Xperia Z vs HTC Butterfly shoot out as well.
Despite being called smartphones, a good camera is always one of the main things customers look for when choosing a new device, and it is precisely because of that we compare the 13MP camera of one of the latest Android smartphones to hit Malaysia — the Sony Xperia Z — with one of the best cameras on a smartphone currently available in the market — the 8MP shooter in the Galaxy Note II.
There’s only one picture from each device for comparison in this post but we will add more as we go along. In the meantime, we want to hear from you. Which one do you think is the better camera? The Xperia Z or the Note II? We’re inclined to say that the Galaxy Note II performs better in this shot but what do you think?
Full resolution image available for your scrutiny and analysis after the jump.
UPDATE: Updated on Xperia Z burst mode speed options and photo resolution.
We saw a video on YouTube showing the Xperia Z shooting well over 1,000 shots in burst mode. Taking inspiration from that video, we put our own review Xperia Z to the test and the video you see here is the result.
Just like the video we saw, our Xperia Z just kept on going even after the burst mode counter stopped at “999+” the device was still shooting away with the camera shutter button held for two minutes. But while the Xperia Z has a 13MP camera, the device can only do burst mode at a maximum resolution of 1280×720 (which is just under 1MP) for “High” speed. There are lower speed options of “Middle” (3920×2204- about 9MP) and “Low” (1920×1080 – 2MP) as well. Surprisingly Middle has the highest resolution of all.
Having pointed that out, over 1,000 shots is still an amazing feat for a smartphone any which way you look at it.
