The G Pro 2 is smooth to the touch. Only 8.3 mm thick, this sleek device rests comfortably in my palm. This white cover looks especially classy and complements the office wear. It sports an impressive 5.9” Full HD display.

Not only does the exterior attract me, the specs packs a punch. It is equipped with Qualcomm SnapDragon Quad-core processors and a 3 GB RAM. It works on the newest Android Operation System KitKat.
Not a stranger to the LG User interface, I enjoy the convenience of the Knock Code. Just 2 taps to the display activate the screen. This greatly reduces reliance on the Lock button and allow swift transition to useful apps like the camera.
If the screen of 5.9" is too large for you, simply slide the front touch buttons. The screen will be shrunk to a corner of the display, so reaching the other end of the screen will not be a problem. Close the Mini View to return to the full display. This provides the best of both worlds; users can decrease the screen size for their convenience while not diminishing the options of a HD display.
One of the most impressive innovations in G Pro 2 lies in the camera app. There are various amazing features to play with:
There are a few cool features to spice up your Instagram or Selfies. Here, we explore Magic Focus, Dynamic Tone and Dual Camera.

Here's something Xtra: HDR (Dynamic Tone).

The Magic Focus does the magic. By taking simultaneous shots of different focus, users can choose the desired photos after the shot. The above focused in the background...

And the third gives us the spotlight on the flowers in the foreground.
The Dual Camera allows users to take a photo of the scenery or concert or any photographs while keeping them in the photo.
The ultimate feature for multi-taskers. In the LG UI, users can view 2 different windows or apps in the same display. However, not all apps can be displayed in the Dual Browsers.
In the AnTuTu Benchmark test, the G Pro 2 scored a decent score. For users looking for a good gaming or multi-tasking experience, this smartphone will be great device.
