Smart phones are becoming more and more powerful with each new release.  But power is not enough, a new smart phone has to have something special going for it.  Something to really pull you in and say ‘wow’.  Today we are looking at a new smart phone that does just that, the LG G4.  The G4 is the newest in a long line of killer LG phones.

This phone at its core is a speed demon. Some of its specs are below:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 1.8GHz processor
  • Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system
  • 4G speed
  • Wi-Fi
  • 5.5″ FHD IPS Touch Screen

There are a few stand outs with this phone.  The first is the design, you get a very minimalistic face to the phone because of its back button.  There is a button on the back of the phone near where the camera lens, that is how you turn the phone on and off.  Took me a second.  The phone itself sports leather, metallic, and ceramic back covers to give the phone a more refined finished look.  It also features a curved ergonomic design to fit the palm of your hand perfectly.  Also a big deal is it has upgradable memory up to 2TB with a microSD card and also a replaceable 3,000 mAh battery.

Secondly the display is an impressive Quad HD resolution with 538 PPI.  The display itself is a 5.5inch IPS Quantum Display which sports a 25% brighter display so the screen can be seen in various lighting conditions and well as a 50% improvement in contrast.

Last but not least is the camera. The camera saves images as RAW for the highest quality image.  The camera itself features a  f/1.8 aperture for low light situations.  A manual mode lets photo enthusiasts of any level have a high level of control over their photos.  There are 15 settings with over 135 options to tinker with.  The 16 MP rear facing camera and 8MP front facing camera take wonderful quality pictures.  The Laser Auto Focus and Optical Image Stabilization are both improved and make for easy picture taking and sharp focused images.

The LG G4 is available for pre-order now, and if you act quickly there is a guaranteed $100 Best Buy® Gift Card when you purchase the LG G4.  Offer valid LG G4 Release Date-6/13/15


  1. those are amazing feature that is a good phone

  2. Great review, I’m in the market for a phone with a better camera. My son’s phone is an older model of a different brand and I’m so envious of his photos. This looks like a great phone.

    This phone sounds like it has some nice features. We had an LG phone a few years ago and the display was really clear.

  4. sounds like a good phone

  5. I’ve been hearing a lot about this phone and will definitely be checking it out when it hits the shelves. Hopefully the battery life is as good as they say!

  6. I love that it shoots in RAW, since I take RAW with my large camera. I find I pick phones based on what kind of pictures they take so this is great!
