LG, in its new flagship G4, has tried to provide users a phone that is literally everything to everybody. On the other hand, when the phones are slimming down, LG G4 thickens up due to its features and form factor.
The 5.5 inch Quantum display, giving the phone a pixel density of approximately 538ppi with 1440x2560 resolution. LG has reduced the bezel around the screen to narrowest possible. The screen has been tried to be made with DCI standard which is mostly reserved for TV and cinema. The colour are really vibrant and browsing, videos as well as gaming experience look great on it and do not strain the eyes in long hours. The display is thus, as expected from a flagship phone.
Using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor coupled with 6 cores alongwith Adreno 418 and a RAM of 3GB may look like it has taken a step backwards but using the phone once will make one realize how the specs do not always matter. The phone works very smoothly throughout, even after being exposed to heavy multi-tasking including the using of dual window option for two different videos does not bring a stutters. Heavy games also run smooth. with built-in memory of 32GB. It has a slot for expandable memory upto 256GB, throwing the flagships which don’t have one, out of the competition.
The phone has a curved design similar to its predecessor G Flex 2, which helps it gives it the label of best phablet in handling and in the pocket. Also, the small curvature provides greater durability to the phone. The buttons are on the back instead of the sides, just below the index finger, which helps handling very much, considering the sides would be difficult to reach on the bigger phone. All this gives the phablet a dedicated one handed usage experience. In the looks department, LG has a lot in store for users as it comes in leather backings as well as of grid pattern plastic backs, thus holding to the grip.
The back as well as battery is removable and replaceable, giving the user ultimate flexibility. This has also helped LG to add a expandable storage slot, which many flagships lose due to their slimmer form factor. The speaker is loud and clear, but being on the back of the phone is a little of a hindrance. The battery is 3000mAh and is reliable for regular users of 3G networks as well as gamers. The replaceable battery feature is going to come in handy, as the G4 lacks quickcharge ability.
The phone has a secondary camera of 8.0 MP and a wide aperture providing features like group selfies or selfies with the background covered. It’s better than most android flagships due to its integration of interface. Main camera is 16.0 MP featuring a laser autofocus, providing ultimate quality, shortening the gap between phone camera and DSC. RAW format images can be taken, which gives the user the liberty to tweak every setting possible to get that perfect picture. The bigger size of these pictures gives a lot more sense to addition of expandable memory. Graining is smoothed out even in highest of digital zoom.
The operating system is Android 6.0 Marshmallow with an LG skin, and thus lacks a App Drawer in default. The camera software has DSLR like control with Kelvin gamete and histogram included, and features many gestures for front camera which makes it a great experience to use. Calendar app takes up any captured area to remind of past dates. The Dual window options are really useful and smooth. The screen saves on battery by avoiding sharpening of areas where it is not really required. Pattern tapping lock has been reintroduced. Google Drive is found to be completely integrated with 100GB free subscription for two years. Qslide apps are also included.
The phone has a simplistic design, great optimization with CPU and GPU, highest quality camera and software. LG UX has included best of the league in its flagship, and design and workaround optimizations make it a must buy for people who want a bang for their buck. The phone finds a tough competition in Samsung Galaxy S7 and Nexus 6P.
