Now this strategy does two things, firstly it lets the customer to get used to the bigger size and new interface, and secondly it allows them to develop a fondness towards the phone which naturally leads the customers to actually buying the phone at the end of the trial.
The New LG Optimus G Pro is not yet available worldwide, but LG promises that they will soon have enough units to meet the global demand.
