LG G4 - Beyond Brilliance

LG G4 - Beyond Brilliance
When LG launched G2 couple of years back, it put the company on everyone’s flagship radar and it has remained there ever since. G2 was a spectacular device, capturing our hearts and souls the minute we laid our hands on it. It set a new direction for LG, paving the path to success and giving us a smartphone we’ve been yearning for. Building on the knowledge and experience of previous flagships, LG recently showcased their latest model, the G4. Keep on reading to find out whether it was worth the wait!

LG G4

Many of our readers will know that last year’s LG G3 was a spectacularly designed device. As such, there wasn’t really a need to go in a different direction for this year’s flagship. LG did make some changes, albeit subtle ones. The biggest change is the leather back cover. Using leather represents a simple yet effective way of injecting a dose of exclusivity into something as mundanely shaped as a smartphone. Thankfully G4’s back cover can be popped of easily giving you access to microSD slot and a battery. Plus if you start hating the leather at any point, just swap it out for a polycarbonate back cover.

Screens have always been a strong side of LG and this year is no exception. G4 has a similar screen to last year’s flagship, but comes with a few more tweaks, making it look even more spectacular. Dimensions haven’t changed from 5.5-inches as is the case with resolution which is at 1440 x 2560 pixels. Do the math and the result is a mindboggling 538ppi density. That’s enough pixels to confuse even an electron microscope. With all the second generation QHD improvements, this makes it one of the best displays on the market right now. Words fail to describe it, so make sure to get up close even if you aren’t shopping for a new phone.

Under the hood, LG decided to do something unorthodox. Instead of rolling with the latest CPU from Qualcomm, engineers opted for Snapdragon 808 coupled to Adreno 418 GPU and 3GB of RAM. Not that it makes any difference since this an insanely powerful 64-bit chipset. If you’ve used an Android anywhere close to these specs, you’ll know that this is pure overkill. There is simply nothing out there to challenge this configuration. Good thing is that having these specs means you are future-proof for a few years down the line.

Incredibleness doesn’t stop with specs on the G4! Oh no, the best part of it is definitely the unbelievable camera. A 16-megapixel sensor on the back combined with laser focus shoots the most stunning images you’ve ever seen. Images are incredibly detailed, full of light and beautifully balanced. Dig through the menus to find a ton of options you can tinker with. Selfie fans will be glad to know that G4 comes with an 8-megapixel front camera.
 
LG has once again created a masterpiece. Everything has been consistently improved from previous generation, sacrificing absolutely nothing on the way. We’ve seen companies ditch good features in favour of something experimental, but not LG. LG stayed true to its fans, creating something exceptional. If you want an absolutely sensational Android experience, then look no further!
