LG G4: all the new features


Some may argue that the LG G4 is not such a big departure from the LG G3, but they will certainly be wrong, as LG's new flagship has a host of new features that make it way more compelling than its predecessor. 

For the uninitiated eye, both devices are pretty similar to one another; for tech heads, however, the new South Korean warrior is a much more appealing handset that bears improvements in a host of key areas, making it a worthy successor to the G3.

During the announcement of the flagship, LG naturally made sure to stress upon the new features of the device. If you have missed the event but you're interested in what are the main selling points of the LG G4, fret not - we have summarized all the new features for you.

Take a look at the gallery right below and make sure to drop a comment about the handset right beneath it.

Yup, but I don't get why ppl compare it to the S6. I have a G3 and my wife a Note 4. We were shopping for phablets, and the screen on the S5 was noticably smaller. S6 still is. and to me the Note 4 is too big! And I still think 5.5 inches with tiny bezels is perfect, even with a marginally less robust spec sheet.

Because the S series and the G series are current flagship "smartphone-sized" lines. The Note series is rivaled by the Flex/Pro series, which are the companies' respective phablet lines.

And still almost the same launch price as G3? Now that is improvement. Before ppl complain about this being s6 price: larger screen, (specwise) better camera, dual flash, sd card, removable back which means u can have more than 1 color. If only it was the g2 size:(

Better camera?? Dude, when did you find the camera better. wait for the reviews. As for other things, processing power matters a lot. 808 is old chip. IMO the 805 in the note 4 is better than this, hell even the Note 4 sports adreno 420 gpu whereas 808 is with 418. SD slot is a plus point, but the removable back?? I don't think that counts as a features. I would personally carry a powerbank if i need to rather than carrying separate batteries.

LG's OFFICIAL SITE DOESN'T HAVE THE DIMENSIONS. WHERE ARE YOU GETTING THESE MEASUREMENTS ???? The G4 is too big. Anything larger than the Samsung S6 is too much. NO FINGERPRINT SCANNER = FAIL But, kudos for retaining the removable battery and SD. Only a idiot buys a phone without them.

As usual, LG released a press release with all the official specs and features of the phone, so...

QWERTYslider you keep going on about the no fingerprint scanner = fail. You are so wrong. There are many ways to get into the phone without using a finger print scanner. The way I get on to my phone nowadays is to use my smart watch. Since its paired to my phone. But if you don't like that method you can use your face (especially since they used an 8mp front facing camera on the G4). There is lots of options other then a finger print scanner.

Yeah, we fixed that. It's coming with 5.1 out of the box, so...

Can you please shut up about the fingerprint sensor?

Not everyone interested in a free fingerprint giveaway. You can't change your fingerprints, once they have been stolen. Just think a about the possibilities of misuse. Apple, Google etc, they all will tell you, how safe everything is and that they have no access to your stuff, but thats what they said before the illegal gps tracking (2010?), carrierIQ (2011) and backdoors for government agencies have been revealed.

Some things are lacking, but it's still a great upgrade over the G3.

Not really. Note 4's GPU is theoretically better than G4's (420 vs 418).
