The incredible smartphone
Display and Configuration
The LG G4 shows off a 5.5-inch Quantum Quad HD multi-touch display, which delivers 20 percent wider colour reproduction, 25 percent higher brightness, and 50 percent higher contrast than the LG G3. It sports a slim-arc design, with a 3,000mm radius, which offers 20 percent increase in rigidity when compared to its predecessor.
Inside, the smartphone carries 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 SoC, which has a 1.8GHz dual-core Cortex-A57 cluster and a 1.44GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 processor. It is aided by 3GB RAM and Adreno 418 GPU. It runs on the latest Android Lollipop OS, further enhanced by LG’s latest UX 4.0.
Camera and Storage
The LG G4 flaunts a 16MP rear camera with f/1.8 lens, optical image stabilisation 2.0, a dual-LED flash, colour-spectrum sensor, and laser autofocus. It also packs an impressive 8MP front snapper that is capable of recording 2,160p videos. The camera application offers quite a handful of software tweaks like recording RAW images, manual shutter speed, ISO settings, and capturing panoramas up to 104MP. It has 32GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 2TB.
Battery and Connectivity
The LG G4 is fuelled by a 3,000mAh Li-ion battery and can be connected via 4G LTE networks, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi (including latest ac standard), NFC, A-GPS, DLNA, USB 2.0, and video out via Slimport for up to 4K resolution.
The LG G4 is a premium phablet with outstanding features including beastly configuration, mind-boggling display, high quality cameras and latest Android Lollipop OS. However, since it’s a flagship offering, the phone’s price falls on the premium side.
