LG officially intros the G4 Stylus and G4c (a mini G4)
LG today unveiled two new G4 smartphones, the G4 Stylus and G4c, both of which are cheaper ("exceptionally priced", according to LG) and less advanced than the original G4 flagship.

The LG G4c seems to be that G4 Mini that we told you about not long ago. The handset sports a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, runs Android Lollipop, and is powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor (possibly a Snapdragon, though LG isn't mentioning this). Other features include LTE connectivity, a 5 MP front-facing camera, an 8 MP rear camera, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2540 mAh battery. The G4c will be available around the world starting later this month, in three color versions: Metallic Gray, Ceramic White, and Shiny Gold.

As for the G4 Stylus, this is nothing more than a rebranded LG G Stylo (which is already available in South Korea, and will soon be launched in the US via T-Mobile). Thus, the handset's got a 5.7-inch 720p display, a Rubberdium Stylus pen, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 3000 mAh battery. The LTE variant of the G4 Stylus is powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor, while the 3G variant uses an octa-core 1.4 GHz processor (probably made by MediaTek). The G4 Stylus has two color versions (Metallic Silver and Floral White), and will be released at about the same time with the G4c. Any takers?

What's more, I bet the "1.2 GHz quad core processor" will be a humble snapdragon 410. And I bet that it will be launched at the same price of a z3 compact.

Thanks.... but NO THANKS LG.

We all know how Horribly under-powered a 1GB RAM is for an Android phone these days.

You ain't no Apple here. Shame on you LG. LOL.

Total joker specs compared to the OnePlus One, probably still a higher price tag...spells a Low Grade ripoff. Let's hear that price LG.

I'm going on record now.
The G3 was the peak for LG, and they've begun their downward spiral.
It's a shame, because the smartphone market needs a strong and competitive #3 to keep #2 and #1 from becoming the fat, lazy pigs that they are.
The only smart thing LG has done this year is retain the removable battery and SD, and those features will be the only reason they sell any phones.

I hate their mid to low range phone. And I'm a fan of LG since 2006.
But, On my country, Indonesia, it costs $654, it's 3000mAh version, with dual sim lte (which usually costs $15 more), with free 64gb class10 premium microSD (worth $40), leather plastic case (cost $38 and $15 each), vr plasticboard (worth $20, available later), quadbeat 3 headphone (worth $15), additional 2900mAh battery external charger (worth $35, can charge 100% in an hour), free 2years google drive 100gb, usb OTG cable (worth $3), line (chat app) doll (they sell phone with free really big doll, worth $5), new curved gorilla glass 4 (yeah, not 3, available later) replacement for a year including user damage, and $153 cashback for those who preorder this month. Don't forget calibrated screen profile of DCI standard, which is worth more than $6000
While galaxy s6 costs more than $770, single sim, no headset, no case, no free glass replacement, no microsoft cloud memory, no VR, no online service (music, book, movie).
Is it fair to compare them side by side? :D it's cheaper than note4 in fact

If you ask me, G2 was LG's peak so far. G3 didn't live up to the hype.

Yeah, I'm really disappointed they didn't come with a 5" or 5.2" g4.

The above one is better than nothing, but a full featured one with excellent camera, mic, speakers, screen, etc.

So the "c" means cost-cutting, not compact after all. LG's mini series are still living in the 8gb rom world.

LG disappoints me yet again! No flagship in a small version handset, like SONY! Think I'll return to Sony... Who the f#*k wants a 8 mp rear camera?

5 inch? Those specs? Oh! I got it! By calling it "Mini" they are referring to overall performance and not size!! Ok, now I understand.

LG produced enough midranges I thought, LG Magna, Spirit, Stylo and so on...
In addition they's made these. I think they didn't have to do it. But it's their stuff.

G2 Mini, G3s, Spirit, Magna. Basically the same specs for much lower price. Why would someone buy the G4c? For the same money M4 Aqua trumps G4c in basically every way. Nice shoot in the foot LG. With a shotgun.

Better buy a G2. Probs the same price point as that atrocity.

Maybe these will sell well in international markets, but from a U.S. perspective, LG lost a golden opportunity to challenge the Note series and the Z3 compact devotees with these two models, if they had released them with higher end specs.

-LG Can you make phone's Mini version like sony, They made Z3 compact like Z3 just little smaller.

LG G4 S SAME phone as G3 S....

I'm disappointed to see them not come out with a "real" g2 replacement, but happy to see them at least come out with something. Cross my fingers that TMobile will carry it...

So many whiners in this thread!! The G4 clearly has a camera that is much better than most cell phones out there. That is worth the price right there. Also, it is rumored that LG will formally come out with a phablet. If they did that and it had the new camera, just those two things would make it a giant killer. LG may just be getting started! BTW I love the G3!

May as well wait for the Asus ZenFone 2 or the Lenovo K80. The ZF2 and K80 are budget phones with 64 bit CPUs, 4GB of RAM, and Full HD screens! It's a no brainer.
