Camera and Battery
Both the Samsung Note 3 and the LG G Pro 2 are powered by the same 3200 mAh, a Li-Ion battery.

The LG G Pro 2 has not yet hit the stores and it still remains unveiled, so it is not possible to make accurate comparisons for camera quality as well as battery life. Both the phablets are similar in their hardware specs, but the LG G Pro 2 has a better camera with optimal image stabilization features and also comes with a slightly bigger screen, though the S Pen in Samsung’s Note 3 brings in greater functionality. In addition, the screen of the Note 3 can also be handled with gloves on, due to the high sensitivity mode and is very useful in cold climates. Multitasking is possible in both the devices, with the Note 3 offering a multi window mode, splitting the display into two parts and showing both the apps at once, whereas the LG G Pro 2 has a dual window mode, with the apps to be chosen appearing across the device display and not in the form of a sidebar.
