LG G4 Review – Here’s What We Think

LG G4 Review

You may remember when the LG G3 smartphone received a lot of praise. Now, we get to do the same thing with LG’s newest smartphone model, the LG G4.

DESIGN/STYLE

The LG G4 is virtually similar in almost every way to the original G3 model. The physical buttons are located on the back of the device, while a screen covers almost the entire front side. Both of these specifications help keep the device looking thin. While the LG G4 is not as slim as other various smartphone models, it is also not as heavy or think thanks to the device’s tapered edges. The screen size of five and a half inches is the same as the LG G3.

Unlike previous models, and certainly unlike other smartphone models, the LG G4 possesses a back made entirely out of leather. Real leather is used rather than cheap imitation material and is available in three separate finishes: red, brown, and black. This is a specification that certainly gives the LG G4 smartphone an edge over most other smartphones on the market. For those who may not want a leather backing, the device is available in the following finishes:

*Metallic Gray

*Ceramic White

*Gold

The screen on the front of the LG G4 contains an astonishing 2560×1440 resolution and is nearly as big as the screen contained on the Samsung Galaxy Note device. The screen resolution gives the LG G4 an overall pixel density of 538 ppi.

PROCESSOR

The LG G4 contains a Snapdragon 808 processor instead of a Snapdragon 810 processor. This runs at a speed of 1.8GHz, which is a slower speed than the original G3 model. The processor contains approximately 3GB of RAM as well as an Adreno 418 GPU. Overall memory space is around 32GB and the LG G4 also contains a Micro SD slot to allow for additional space.

The LG G4 is also outfitted with Android Lollipop 5.1 software, which also contains additional features from LG.

CAMERA

The LG G4 contains a 16-megapixel camera, which is a significant upgrade from the 13-megapixel camera that came with the original G3 model. It allows for precise focusing even in the lowest amounts of light. In addition, the camera is also able to record video in 4K Ultra HD resolution. For those who enjoy selfies and video chatting, the front camera has also been upgraded to 8-megapixels.

CONNECTIVITY

The LG G4 contains 4G connectivity capabilities, along with 3G HSPA and GSM as well. Other options in terms of connectivity include the following:

*Bluetooth 4.0

*WiFi

*3.5mm headphone jack

*USB 2.0

*NFC

*HDMI SlimPort

BATTERY LIFE

The LG G4 contains a removable 3,000mAh battery, which is the same kind of battery the original G3 model contained. The battery is heavy-duty and is also rather quick to charge up, even when the device has been used rather heavily.

CONCLUSION

The LG G4 has always been considered to be a different kind of smartphone, thanks mostly in part to the optional leather backing that can be installed onto it. The overall design is stunning and the screen resolution is absolutely incredible. All of these features makes the LG G4 one great phone to consider investing in.
