Default Is it worth upgrading from i9500 to LG Optimus G Pro E985?

Hi,

I know screen sizes are different. But if you intentionally keep that factor aside, do you think its worth upgrade? I am comfortable with both screen sizes. What draws me towards lg g pro is its snapdragon 600 processor as compared to exynos on s4 i9500. Any suggestions are welcome and thanks in advance.

..coming from an lg optimus g,i wouldn't call the g pro a downgrade. G pro feels like a premium device,with a stock software miles ahead of tw. Unfortunatelly,if you are a flashcoholic or you like latest os,forget about it. Lg sucks at updates. Personally,i wouldn't change the s4 for g pro. Don't forget the g pro was ment to be a note 2 alternative. What i would get with my eyes closed is the g2. Bigger screen,bigfer battery,nice fluid and optimized os.

If u r looking for something between note 2 and note 3 then i would definitely recommend you the optimus g pro. Trust me its the most under rated phone.
It has got a gorgeous display, large removable battery, external storage, a zippy processor and more than enough RAM. The lg stock rooted rom i use is amazingly stable and i dont really feel like m missing something.
You will miss the vast developer support of the s4, but its not a big deal if u r not a flash junkie. There r quite a few stable roms for it if u wanna try.

Go for it :thumbup:
