If you've got a hankering for a beefy smartphone rocking a new Snapdragon 600, consider the AT&T Optimus G Pro. Ah, but the contract, you say. Well, AT&T has just dropped the off-contract price to $439.99. It used to be $549.99. All the contract deals have remained the same, but eBay doesn't even sell the G Pro as cheaply as AT&T does now.

This is the AT&T-branded Optimus, remember. That means some AT&T junk on the device. On the upside, you get 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 ARM chip, a 5.5-inch 1080p LCD, and LTE support.

Picking up this device from AT&T is a great way to get a fast LTE phone without signing a contract or spending a ton of cash. If you go into the store to buy a phone at full price, be prepared to explain the situation to the reps several times. They don't get many people like you.

    Wow that's actually worth considering to get.

    I hope AT&T continues to lower the off-contract prices of all their phones!

    My wife and I just switched to AT&T and this is the phone she chose. It is indeed a very nice phone. I would put it toe to toe with the Note 2.

    Very true, the rep was highly confused when I told her I wanted to buy it. She kept telling me I wasn't eligible. Took like 20 minutes to get her to understand.

    On a side note, I just live-chatted with AT&T and while the rep told me they don't "price match", she gave me a $110 credit on my account. ;)

    I'd buy this in a heartbeat if this worked (on all bands) for T-Mobile.

    A really nice phone I played around a few hour with at an ATT store, the only thing holding me back from buying are the Galaxy Note 3 and maybe HTC One Max are coming this fall with a 6" display.

    I hope this phone sells well, it's like a Galaxy Note 2.5 with the old (better) samsung looks

    You can't actually buy this phone for $439 I tried...
