LG is in an attempt to provide users with a smartphone that offers literally everything you may want. The company's current flagship smartphone LG G4, comes with an unique and attractive design, great performance, and a fantastic camera.
The LG G4 is all about design, display and camera. In terms of design, the LG G4 comes with a curved back with variety of cover options including leather back. The presence of 5.5 inch display dictates the overall size of the G4 and slim bezels on the sides of the display makes it a pretty narrow device.
The new IPS Quantum display technology on the G4 improves the colour accuracy. While the camera comes with new lens with improved optical images stabilization and new colour spectrum sensor that provides a more accurate white balance.
While spending some time with the LG G4 I found it to be well balanced in terms of weight, manageable in one hand and indeed it looks premium too. The curved back of the handset provides a little extra grip in the palm. Read on to know more about the LG G4...
The LG G4 is available in two options: first as premium model featuring a leather back and another with polycarbonate back with a diamond effect. The new LG G4 is closely related to the LG G Flex2 design language featuring a similar curved back.
The smartphone has an attractive design and comes with the same brushed metal effect as the last years flagship. But, the so-called premium model with leather back is quite disappointing, as it comes with too thinly stretched leather over the back of the smartphone. Leather could have been a great deal for the LG, if it had some leather feel at the back of the phone.
The thin leather material used in the phone, almost feels plastic. However, the smartphone is lightweight measuring just 155 grams, measures 148.9mm and curved back feels steady in the palm. It device flaunts LG's favourite design tweaks with a rear buttons with pleasant ridged effect, making the slim bezel around the phone.
The LG G4 display is simply mind-blowing with a 5.5 inch Quad HD IPS Quantum screen housing a resolution of 1440x2560 with 538 PPI and a contrast ratio of 1500:1. The new IPS Quantum display technology on the G4 improves the colour accuracy.
The G4 phone features Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor SoC with a 1.8GHz 64-bit hexa-core CPU and 3GB LPDDR3 RAM. It run on the latest Android Operating System, Android 5.1 Lollipop.
The smartphone comes with a great camera and LG has added huge amount of control to the camera, allowing users to get the setting for better clicks. It comes a 16 megapixel primary camera featuring a new optical image stabilization, improved lens and a wider aperture. The selfie camera got bigger with 8 megapixel sensor. The camera comes with new interface and tons of options including a manual controls and a RAW mode. While, the wider aperture at f1.8 is designed to deliver amazing low-light image quality.
In a time when most of the high-end smartphones comes with built-in batteries, the LG G4 is one of the few flagship smartphones that comes supports microSD card and removable battery. The 3000mAh battery inside performs well enough. The larger high-resolution QHD display could drain the battery soon, but LG promises that the hexa-core processor should use the less battery and the GPU under the hood is smart enough to manage the display.
