So, you are thinking about buying an LG G4? Maybe not sure what’s cool and what’s not cool about the LG G4?
In this review, I will be going over the LG G4, what it is and why you should get it.
The LG G4 sports a 5.5-inch 1440P screen with 538ppi, that’s 538 pixels per inch! The display has gotten slightly brighter from last year’s LG G3 along with the upgraded display.
The 1440P screen is excellent and has great viewing angles, everything looks crisp and in detail. G4 is nowhere bright as a Galaxy S6 but unless you are using your phone under the sun all day long, this probably isn’t going to matter much.
The display is actually slightly curved this year, this should help in slightly better viewing angles with more protection when you drop your phone as there’s a slight gap in the middle.
As for size, the G4 is slightly taller and wider than last year but overall design has remained mostly the same except different back covers in pattern back and real leather. I have yet to try the leather back but definitely looks like the way to go if you use your phone naked.
For performance, LG has opted to go with Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, a 6 core processor with 1.82Ghz dual-core and 1.44Ghz quad-core. The benchmarks numbers aren’t as high as Galaxy S6 but in real world usage, I found it ran most apps just as fast as Galaxy S6. Only graphic-intensive games were a bit behind but you will not have a problem if upgrading from any smartphone from 1-2 years ago.
The LG G4 has upped their excellent laser-focus camera from last year’s LG G3, upgrading to F1.8 lens from F2.4 and adding full manual mode with shutter speed control. And yes, this is one of the two best Android smartphones out this year that supports 4K with OIS(optical image stabilization).
