By comparing the specs in the table, Galaxy Note 3 with 5.7-inch display in 151.2 mm x 79.2 mm x 8.3 mm dimension is slightly bigger than the LG G Pro 2 by 0.2-inch. LG claimed G Pro 2 offers an industry-leading screen-to-frame ratio of 77.2 percent. In the past, LG has brought some beautifully small bezels like LG G2, which allows big displays on smartphones that fit comfortably in the hand.

LG G2's KnockON feature is taken a notch higher with LG G Pro 2's Knock Code that allows additional security feature. Basically, users need to knock on the phone with various patterns, which is actually faster than waking up the device and entering a password.

Thus far, the "availability of G Pro 2 in markets outside of Korea has not yet been determined but attendees to the 2014 Mobile World Congress can experience G Pro 2 and its features first-hand."
