LG G4 Review – A game-changer for LG

If you are looking to buy a new phone then LG may not be the first brand that springs to mind however you may change your opinion after reading our LG G4 review as we reveal a pretty special phone.

 

LG G4 Design and Build

The first thing that strikes you about the LG G4 is the stunningly good looks of this smartphone and it comes in a couple of configurations to suit your personal taste. The high quality metal body option has a case on the back with a hammered pattern and is available in grey, gold or white. The leather options has a back cover made of high-grade genuine leather with a stitched seam down the middle.

The curved body of the phone fits naturally in the hand and the 5.5-inch IPS display is impressive on many levels. The screen has 50% more contract, 56% improved colour accuracy and is 25% brighter than the screen used on the G3. The resolution of 2560 x 1440 delivers impressive quality to videos and photos and the screen even works well in sunlight.

 

LG G4 Features

 

The LG G4 is packing high-end features all the way with a 64-bit hexacore processor, 3GB RAM and 32GB of on board memory that can be boosted with a microSD card of up to 2TB – that’s some serious space!

X10 LTE 4G connectivity is on board and there is a HDMI Slimport for taking your content onto the big screen of a 4k television.

 

Android 5.1 is on board giving you a great user experience and access to Google Play for the latest apps to download. LG has added some of their own features on board to complement the OS including LG Health and Air Drive for wirelessly sharing files with your PC. Event Pocket lets you keep your events in an organised space and it even suggests venues and things to do near the event.

The phone has a removable 3,000mAh battery which will please those who have not been impressed by the recent trend of non-removable batteries packed into the latest smartphones.

 

LG G4 Camera

 

The LG G4 is packing a 16-megapixel camera on the back, and while that isn’t as high a resolution as some other flagships models the G4 makes up for the shortfall with a f1.8 aperture for capturing more light. There is an infrared sensitive sensor that measures the visible light to ensure you get the perfect picture and the Manual mode allows you to adjust various settings like a pro.

Light Trail Effect allows you to paint with light onto images and the laser detection used for auto-focus is super-quick so you don’t miss the perfect shot.

The front camera is also pretty impressive with a resolution of 8-megapixels and a nifty Gesture Shot feature that allows you to snap a selfie by clenching your fist and a double fist clench will make the camera take 4 quick succession shots so you can choose the best one.

 

VERDICT

 

The LG G4 has really impressed me during my time getting to grips with it and while I have never really considered an LG for my own use this one is a game-changer. Mobile users who opt for an LG G4 instead of the usual Samsung Galaxy flagship or iPhone are bound to be converted too.
