If you're obsessed with taking high-quality pictures on your phone, the G Pro's camera might be a deal breaker. It certainly doesn't hold up to the S4, and its options are quite limited. On the other hand, if you treat the camera as supplemental to the other features, or as a nonissue, it should work fine for most of your needs.
LG's Optimus G Pro is king of the small--but growing--phone/tablet hybrid market (I refuse to use the term "phablet"). It's a performance powerhouse that, despite its large size, is relatively comfortable to use even with average-size hands. The G Pro loses a few points for its limited multitasking features, but if you're looking to buy a large Android phone and aren't dismayed by the underperforming camera, then the G Pro is definitely worth considering.
