Introduction


LG's newest flagship, the LG G4, is no longer a subject of rumors and hearsay – it's already official and poised to hit the market later this month, relieving the LG G3 from its flagship duties. The phone will certainly play a pretty important role in LG's portfolio, because it needs to further solidify the already-established market positions of the second-largest South-Korean manufacturer. In order to do so, the new 5.5” Android gladiator will have to clash with another pretty successful device that races in the same display-size lane – the Apple iPhone 6 Plus.

Design


In terms of exterior, the two devices differ from one another in many key areas. The LG G4 comes in two different versions, one with a regular plastic back that employs a 3D diamond-shaped pattern and another one with a genuine leather back, which comes with a signature stitching through the middle of the back. The iPhone 6 Plus, on the other hand, comes with an aluminum unibody with a smooth finish and rounded edges.

Size-wise, the G4 and the Apple phablet are also rather different, albeit they have displays with similar sizes. Despite being way thicker than the iPhone 6 Plus, the LG flagship is both shorter and narrower, all the while tipping the scales significantly less than the Apple phablet; it's better screen-to-body size ratio makes it the more compact device.

The rear cover, as well as the battery of the LG G4, are both removable, giving access to the SIM card and microSD card slots of the flagship. The iPhone, as you might expect, does not come with such features – the only thing you can take in and out of the phone is the tray out of the nano SIM slot.

It's worth mentioning that the LG G4 aims to provide a new level of ergonomics and is slightly curved to the front (similarly to the G Flex/G Flex 2), while the iPhone 6 Plus is a completely flat phone (save for the protruding iSight camera). The positioning of the hardware buttons is also different – similar to the G3, the G4 has a set of rear-positioned keys (power button & volume rocker); meanwhile, the iPhone has a classic setup – hardware home button with an embedded fingerprint scanner, power button on the right side, and a volume rocker, as well as a hardware mute switch on the left one.

The loudspeaker of the G4 can be found at the lower-left quadrant of the phone's rear, which means that you could potentially muffle it with your palm from time to time. There are no such concerns with the iPhone 6 Plus – it's loudspeaker is positioned on the very bottom of the phone.

Display


As we mentioned before, both smartphones have 5.5-inch displays... and this is where the majority of similarities ends. The G4 comes with a Quad HD IPS 'Quantum Display' that boasts a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. This commands a pixel density of 538ppi, paving the way for a detailed and sharp display. Meanwhile, the iPhone 6 Plus comes with the sharpest display Apple has ever put in a smartphone – the 1080p IPS LCD one on the phone flaunts a pixel density of 401ppi. While this is noticeably lower than the G4's one, the difference shouldn't be a grave issue for most consumers.

When it comes to realistic color reproduction, the iPhone 6 Plus performs better than the LG G4 – it is more accurate and natural; the different color nuances and shades of iPhone 6 Plus' display also match up with most of the color targets on the sRGB color chart. In the meantime, the LG G4 comes with a much more saturated display that offers more vibrant and “eye-catching” colors, undoubtedly an intentional move by LG.

The iPhone 6 Plus also has a superior white-point temperature – at 7318K, it's much closer to the ideal reference point of 6500K. The display of LG's new pride and glory clocked in at 8031K, which means that it gives white colors a noticeable blueish tint.

In terms of gamma, both displays perform in a similar manner. At low brightness levels, both reproduce the various gray shades slightly darker than intended. Yet, at higher brightness levels, the iPhone 6 Plus has the upper hand in terms of overall accuracy, as its readings are closer to the curve that represents the ideal gamma measurement.

Speaking of brightness, we should also mention that the LG G4 achieves lower maximum one than its iOS rival – 454 nits for the G4 at best versus 574 nits for the iPhone 6 Plus. But how low can they go? In terms of minimum brightness, the G4 has the upper hand: 2 nits for the G4 vs 4 nits for the iPhone 6 Plus.

Agreed. For some reason this article did not mention many things the make the G4 shine (compared to the iPhone). Battery charging time & life & swappability, charging standardization (micro USB), ability to use a standard Qi charger, camera, SD slot, NFC, etc.

"You can even beat older model!!"

That's the whole point of this article, LG beating a phone with 2012 spec. Even the $300 Huawei's G7 can match iPhone 6+. At least we can commend LG for trying to be different with their G4.

Go to youtube and search test and comparison on speed between devices you will be surprised to see the iphone 6 and 6+ are pretty slow for everything in fact.

But the animation make you feel like its not slow.

Anyway..

My biggest complaint about the G4 is the cold screen. Terrible for night time reading LOL. And I'm surprised by the amount of power coming out of the audio jack. LG knocked a lot of the tiny details out of the park here! Can't go wrong with either phone, just wish the G4's screen was warmer...

Only thing it has the upper hand on with smartphones in 2015 is the camera. It trails behind everything else in almost all other areas, especially on battery life.

I really don't care considering most people just nitpick over benchmarks, and other petty details that I find rather insignificant.

For me... Call Quality, Audio quality, and Screen quality are the most important things and as far as I care, the G4 is really, really good. Camera, battery life, build quality... Those are quite important too but not too much. I just don't like viewing it like its a competition. Lol, it kinda is one but I'm just a fan of all OEMs....

There's yet to be a perfect phone with no sacrifices IMHO. The Meizu MX4 pro comes closest. Lawd of that and the M9 had a baby...

As for battery life itself, the G4 could be a good choice for buyers disappointed by usage times of the Galaxy S6. I've been getting around 16 hours per day with mixed usage consisting of web browsing, messaging, music streaming and photography using the rear camera. Phil has seen about the same. With more intensive usage patterns on LTE, with heavier camera use, this figure dropped to around 14 hours. To put that in terms of screen-on time, I've been getting around 4 hours with mixed indoor and outdoor use on Wifi and LTE.

You'll get a full day comfortably, but little more.
For most of us, that's not sufficient to comfortably squeeze a second day's use out of a single charge. But it is enough that I'm not worrying about the G4 needing a mid-day top-up, as many GS6 owners including our own editors have found.

No. You are wrong, at cold temperature. Do hands-on with LG G4, set the brightness at auto or manual regular daily use (around 200nits). In fact, it's really super balanced. When you go at max (manually), it'll produce bluish color, which is naturally look brighter, more battery friendly since it uses blue led, and the color is the opposite of super bright shining light (yellowish, that's why your car light looked that way). When you set it at auto, it can shine above 570nits. And when you lower it at 0% (2nits), it produces warm temperature.
While amoled, they are great at 100%, looked pinkish purpleish at maximal auto setting, and look fade pale dull at low bar (since the colored led lost it's power).

There is never a clear winner when it's iPhone VS Everything else in the world...Citing it's preference or some crap. iPhone is forever having premium feel,better battery and intuitive interface. Seriously it's like reading the same review over and over.

X Phone has X amount of things that are way better than the iPhone, but iPhone somehow has premium feel,better battery and intuitive interface, so we can't pick a winner.

while i6+ batter just last 6% longer, and need 35% longer time to charge..
premium feel? thats totally subjective, i'm really bored to see i6+ model, too much people have iPhone, LG G4 model is more premium IMO..
intuitive interface? its another subjective point, its became intuitive because u use iOS for long time, for new user? both is same..

Premium feel - there will always be other phones with premium feel
Better battery - really?
Intuitive interface - always lagging with 4 to 5 apps opened

To hardcore fanboys nothing will beat iPhone. If all people think the way you do, there will be no innovation and improvements with technology. And I can tell you from first hand experience that Huawei's G7 can beat your iPhone 6+.

You have a phone running 1.8GHz Snapdragon 808 chipset, comprising two Cortex-A57 and four Cortex-A53 cores, 3GB of RAM etc up against a dual-core A8 chipset that runs at 1.4GHz, and 1GB of RAM and yet still this 1GB phone can outperform the LG….Apple doesn’t need to bump up the specs if 3 year old specs are providing more than enough power for Apple to compete other top brand phones..

Last thing we need is an iPhone Running a Qud core 4 GB of ram, that thing would be unstoppable.

Let me correct you here. I own an iPhone 6 plus and I don't give a damn about any android phone right now except the s6 edge. Apple may deliver old specs to achieve similar performance to the top notch hardware android offers. The problem is this, Apple is charging a much higher price for that low hardware and that's what people in the android camp are complaint about. It's not about performance. All phones have gotten to a point where they perform equally. Are you saying you're satisfied with your 6 plus camera compared to the competition or the battery life it offers? Mine lags because of low ram and the 1080p screen. Don't know about your unit but if Apple could have given us anything close to the android hardware I don't think with their optimized OS we would be thinking of upgrading. So to some extent Apple is indeed ripping us off.

My iPhone 6 Plus doesn’t lag, in fact i can’t remember the last time i had an app crash on me, and that alone is a interesting point, i've seen comments here at PA of people saying they were returning their S6 edge becuase it was laggy,

I had a Note 4, so did my father..and his ran very smooth, i however never had such a laggy phone in my life, it was horrible got a few replacements but they weren’t any better..

I think sadly a good portion of ALL iPhones and Galaxy phones that are made are at some level faulty, why? due to the huge numbers they are producing, quality control in impossible at these levels.

Now am i happy with the Camera?, yes, the issue isn’t the Camera, its the Screen, Apple is still using LCD which is nothing compared to Amoled, now two reason why Apple never used Amoled, 1) at the time of amoled adoption Apple was falling out with Samsung the number 1 producer of amoled screens, 2) No one was able to produce enough amoled screens for Apple, even Samsung struggles to meet its own demands let alone others.

Also my battery last 2 days, a full 24 hours easy with heavy use (Gaming, youtube, Facebook etc all day).

finally, wise user... Same here, i own older iPad 4 and what i need is their optimized os and apps for tablet. If spending the same amount of money for any iProduct would give you pretty much same specs with top notch android device, i would think to upgrade my device anytime soon. (just like my old iPad 4)

Why people is easy to please when it come to apple and complain how lag touchwiz is even when samsung try to cut some unused feature.

A single Cyclone CPU in iPhone is bigger and consume more power than a single Cortex A57. Do you really think Apple can put Quad-core 1.4GHz Cyclone CPU into your iPhone with their current technology?? Lol .. that Quad-core Cyclone CPU would heat up like **** and burn your hands. Not to mention you have to say goodbye to your battery life since it would consume much more power than Dual-core. iPhones are known for not having good battery life even though they have much lower resolution screen and Dual-core processor. Just imagine if they use Quad-core CPU. -_-

21. miket1737 (Posts: 2350; Member since: 17 Mar 2013)


Where are your sources for this? Cyclone dual core in the 6 Plus and 6 use just as much energy as a quad core processor roughly (s805/s801) vice versa. Also Apple goes for low clocked cores for better sustained performance by going wide with their cores (very strong single core performance)

A quad core enhanced cyclone (Apple A9 might use a brand new architecture) on 14nm node will absolutely be very powerful and also very power efficient. Also the 6 Plus lasts just as long as the best performing Android phablets in battery life (note 4/oneplus one on screen time)

Considering that the A8X is a 3 core beast (super wide cores) with a 8 core GPU (over 200 ALU'S in clusters) and sips power very efficiently on a 20nm node. Its safe to say that Apples next gen SoC (A9) is going to both be extremely powerful and very power efficient with fantastic sustained performance, it will completly oblierate current S810 implementations in performance (non Xiaomi note pro)

yeah, just go check arstechnica, extremetech, ananadtech and other websites reviews and mentions of battery life of 6 plus vs the note 4 and others. also marques brownlee says they both have extremely similiar battery lifes so yeah...

and dont think you can read to well as that isnt even what i said, i said that the 2 cores overall in the A8 consume just as much power as the quad cores in the Snapdragon 800/801/805. that the overall A8 SoC package with 2 cores consumes just as much power as the quad core s801/805 and infact might actually use slightly less power since being on a 20nm node, it most certainly has longer sustained performance and can run sustained performance longer then the 800/801/805 can so yeah...

you only read and think what you want to see as a fanboy and thus you have interpreted incorrectly and read wrongly..i suggest you try again at this

cyclone is just bad architecture, is waste of space and battery life.. (cant blame them, they only design one processor every year, and their experience is still low.. unlike mediatek, exynos, intel, and qualcomm who design lots of model every year..)
the only good thing is apple CPU's is their GPU (Imagination's PowerVR) since apple didnt design that part :P

44. miket1737 (Posts: 2350; Member since: 17 Mar 2013)


you cant say cyclone is a bad architecture if it offers superb real world performance, that is like saying Intels processors suck because they always have focused on single core performance and IPC and architecture design, in which is most important for real world performance, thats the path apple is going with their CPU designs as they know single core performance and IPC is more important then having more weaker cores that the software cant utilize all of them.

which is why a intel quad core clocked slower then a AMD octo core processor clocked higher gets spanked by the intel quad core with lower clock speed in performance, intel is focusing on single core performance/IPC, so is Apple with their cyclone architecture. this is obvious. you have absolutely no idea or clue as to what you are talking about on this topic so id suggest that you further save your self from embarrasing yourself

Just look at the pictures and you will see the size of the 6plus is a choke compared to the G4 at the same size.

So the Apple PR team neutralizes it if one of their cult members didn't already. In this case John V saved the day by saying the G4 is WWWWWAAAAAYYYYYY thicker than the 6 plus. And then goes on to say the G4 is taller and narrower with no such emphasis as the thickness. Despite the iphone 6 plus being a good 10mm taller. Somehow the 2mm thickness difference becomes WWAAAAAYYYYYY and 10mm taller is only shorter. Bravo icult. Bravo.

Hello, let me introduce myself, I'm a hardware guru, and spend most of my days researching and testing computers.
Now let's start... The G4 has a 1440p 'Quantum' Display, and is an up a panel. The iPhone 6+ contains a 1080p AmoLED display. A lower resolution display requires less battery and performance from the CPU.
next, the 6+ uses a dual core CPU based of ARM v7. It is based of the cyclone architecture and has a 20nm node, clocked down to 1.4ghz, it's some what easy to heat up. The g4 uses a snapdragon 808 chip, which is comprised of 2 a57 cores and 4 a53 ones, the mean coock speed is 1.6ghz. The cyclone cores require more power than the a57 and a53 ones.
the 6+ has 1GB of lpddr3 ram, and the g4 Has 3gb of lddr4 ram.
The interested graphics chip is about 1 third the performance of any adreno 400 series chip.
overall power consumption is around the same, but the g4 wins in life.

I actually think this review was bias as some of their scores on the displays are off considerably: the g4 is about 5% brighter, it has a blueish tint, but 6+ has... well to be honest it's worse

I'm a fan of LG, but g4 has ddr3 ram. At least it has 1.6gb free ram. While s6 only has 500mb. :D

In terms of using, they are both great for me. In terms of exterior appearance, I'd choose iPhone.
