With the ever increasing competition in the smartphone market, it's difficult for the smartphone makers to come up with newer flagship phones with great specs to stay in the race. LG has certainly tried it's best to come up with a good android phone with a nice screen and a good design.
Though, there are a few cons in the device but it's still a brilliant phone to have.

The Legacy LG G3 v LG G4:

 

LG has finally come out with a successor to it’s very popular device LG G3. There has been alot of talk about this new phone before it’s release and alot of leak videos and predictions were making rounds on the internet, and now, LG has finally announced the G4, it looks like most of the predictions and the leaks were bang on.

The G3 had proven to be a great Android device since it’s release and was one of the most popular devices in 2014. The G3 set up new standards for LG and it was necessary for LG to come up with there next flagship phone which would surpass these standards. We can say that LG has been successful in doing so with the G4.

When it comes to flagship phones, having great specs is a must and the G4 does not disappoint you. The LG G4 comes with some strong specs, boasting a 5.5-inch quad-HD (“quantum”) screen, a 16-megapixel rear camera, 32GB of internal storage and a battery with 3000mAh capacity.

The phone runs on the latest Google’s Android OS 5.1 out of the box.

 

Comparison /w Specs:

When we compare the G4 with the recently released Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, G4 has a slight upper hand on both these devices. The reason, LG G4 comes with a removable battery and a MicroSD card slot that supports up to a whopping 2TB of memory.

To bring you buttery smooth performance, the G4 runs a 64-bit hexa- core Snapdragon 808 CPU clocked at 1.8 GHz along with 3 GB of RAM. The Adreno 418 plays almost any high-end graphics, games which also makes it a gaming powerhouse.

Talking about the other technical features of the phone, the G4 comes with LTE, 4G, dual band WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.1 BLE, GPS, and NFC.

LG has done alot of work with the camera of G4 introducing some new technologies on the phone to help you capture epic images. The camera on the G4 is a 16 MP rear which takes some impressive shots in both good and low light scenarios, cheers to the new f/1.8 lens which brings in more light to the pictures. The new optical image stabilizer to a great extent gets of the blurriness in the picture.

 

 Design and Built:

Enough with the technicalities of the phone, Now let’s see how the G4 looks and feels like. These days only great specs won’t bring buyers to a smartphone, people want to flaunt there phones and use it as a style statement, right? LG has done just the right thing with the G4 following the footsteps of Samsung. Samsung with it’s Galaxy S6 went with the matte aluminum alloy frame and Gorilla Glass 4 on the front and back while on the other hand LG with it’s G4 has gone with carbon fiber and real leather.The leather back looks stunning and is available in four color options.

 

Final Thoughts:

LG has done an extremely good job with the G4 by adding some innovative specs to the device. We can say that the G4 is certainly a good looking Android device currently in the market and with the new leather back it does look a premium device.

The pricing of the phone are not yet available. We will update you when it’s made available.
