Deal: £405 LG Optimus G Pro E988 Smartphone

If you want to stand out of the crowd when choosing your smartphone and think that neither the Galaxy S4, nor the Sony Xperia Z or the HTC One are good enough for you, then do consider the LG Optimus G Pro E988, a model that was announced earlier this year. It is currently on sale on eBay via e_cell for £405, a price that comes with 405 Nectar points.

It is bigger than all its competitors thanks to a 5.5in display that has a full HD resolution. Like the HTC One and the Galaxy S4, it utilizes a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 SoC, one clocked at 1.7GHz. Other features include 2GB of RAM, 4G/LTE capabilities, a 13-megapixel camera, a 2.1-megapixel front-facing one, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot and a massive 3,140mAh battery, one of the biggest we've seen on any smartphone.

It runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and LG has included a few goodies like Smart Video (similar to Samsung's eye tracking technology), a universal remote control feature and VR Panorama amongst other things. Let's hope that its follow-up, the Optimus G2 will fare better. For more check out Sony Xperia Z, LG Optimus G Pro, HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4 : A preview.
