LG G4 Review – Practical device with originality as option




LG G4 is a phone that is particularly striking because of the optional leather back. We immediately find the prettiest version, because the standard does what and cheap plastic on. The 5.5 “display of the G4 is very sharp and looks impressive, but the color reproduction is poor. In everyday use, the G4 is a quick telephone and especially the picture quality and extensive options of the camera traps in a positive way, just as the ability to exchange the battery and memory card. The battery is again less impressed, because intensive use which goes pretty quickly.

It’s as if manufacturers are in consultation with each other every year over the next generation of smart phones, in a secret meeting, which discusses the points on which that year the emphasis. Often we see a new generation of phones namely stressed the same issues. So this year.

It started a few months ago with the introduction of HTC’s One M9, with emphasis on the materials used and improved camera. Then followed Samsung Galaxy S6, again with much emphasis on the materials used and the camera. This month, to be released LG G4, the latest high-end smartphone from this Korean manufacturer, paying close attention to – you guessed it – the material used and the camera.

In the case of the G4 is specifically concerned with the rear side, of which LG has two variants. In the normal model of G4, which goes over the counter for 649 euros, you get a back of shiny plastic, like the G3. But would you 50 euros more, you can get the more luxurious model, which is equipped with a rear leather, genuine leather, not plastic imitation leather that we know from the Samsung phones some time ago.

On camera plane is LG went all out to satisfy even the biggest photography fans. For example, the sensor is increased and the increased resolution, there is a special color sensor is present for a better white balance, and is the camera-app expanded. Which now has a very comprehensive manual mode, where it is possible to save pictures in both jpeg and raw, so users can more intensively after finishing.

Along with familiar features like laser autofocus, a removable battery and the ability to expand the storage memory, makes the G4 paper on a smartphone that meets almost all needs Android users can think of. Or that in practice is really as you read this review.
