6 things that could have made the LG G4 better


Well, the LG G4 is finally here with its classy looks, arched body, and upgraded display and camera. The new flagship definitely sports a few unique features up its sleeve and is even the first to rock a brand new SoC from Qualcomm – the Snapdragon 808.

The LG G4 features a 5.5" screen with a QHD (1440 x 2560) resolution. It is powered by a 64-bit hexacore Snapdragon 808, 3 GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and has 32 GB of internal (expandable) storage. It sports an upgraded 16 MP camera on its back with a wide F1.8 aperture and assisted by a superior OIS 2, which balances the sensor across the x, y, and z planes. The juicebox that keeps the lights on has a 3,000 mAh capacity, and Android 5.1 (skinned with LG's UX 4) is what drives the whole package.

The G4 will be available in two different styles – the ceramic-finished plastic model will cost somewhere around $680, while the leather-clad edition will cost around $50 more (on-contract prices are going to be more in the ballpark of $200 for the ceramic and $300 for the leather edition). It will come in a few different colors – Metallic Gray and Ceramic White for the plastic model and Black and Brown for the leather-covered one. Official pictures show some other colors, though, these will either become available later, or will be sold in limited numbers.

So, the G4 looks like a solid smartphone all around, but is there anything that could've made it better? Let's see if we can nitpick some issues!
