7 Killer Reasons Why LG G4 is Better Smartphone than the Samsung Galaxy S6

    LG on Tuesday unravelled the Galaxy S6 Killer - the G4. The G4 is a high-end flagship smartphone with a removable back and a microSD card slot - both features missing in the Galaxy S6.

    Last year, LG had a G3 premium smartphone with a high-resolution 5.5-inch QHD screen and a plastic back. Now the company is pinning its hopes on the G4 - a premium handset that's going to challenge the Galaxy S6 and the iPhone 6 in the high-end segment.

    7 Killer Reasons Why LG G4 is Better Smartphone than the Galaxy S6

    Sharpest Display Yet

    The LG G4 comes with a 5.5-inch Quantum IPS LCD QHD (2560×1440, 538ppi) sharpest display quality yet. LG like to calls it a "Quantum display." LG claims that the display panel is 25% brighter and 20% wider colour-range than conventional QHD screens seen in the recently launched flagship devices.

    Upping the Stakes on the Camera

    The G4 features a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with an f/1.8 aperture, alongside an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter, which is perfect for selfies. This all promises better photos and the company says that the back camera can rival DSLR photos.

    A microSD card slot on board

    The new LG G4 needed to stand out from the pack. The G4, unlike the Galaxy S6, offers a microSD card slot for storage expansion, which is its biggest strength.

    Bigger battery

    Given the Samsung Galaxy S6 only has a 2600mAh battery compared to the 3,000mAh option (removable) on the LG G4, but that little bit extra is worth it.

    Slight Curved Screen

    The slight curve to the screen is meant to enhance the smartphone's durability and help it survive drops to the floor without shattering the screen, according to LG.

    Removable Back Cover

    The G4 is superior compared to LG's South Korean rival Samsung, which ditched a removable cover with its new flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S6. The G4 has a removable cover, which comes in wide variety of materials.

    8MP Front Facing Camera

    The front of the handset has an 8-megapixel selfie-camera, while Samsung's offerings (Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge) come with a 5MP selfie shooter. We've put the G4 to the test, though.
