LG G4 to come with a dual-mode user interface that can be scaled down to basics
LG recently sent out invitations for what can only be presumed to be the upcoming G4 flagship, which will supposedly be unveiled on April 28/29 in New York, Seoul, London, Paris, Singapore, and Istanbul. With a tagline that reads “See the Great, Feel the Great,” we are expecting nothing short of a well-rounded specs-buster with some intriguing design trickery, as can be attested by the stitched leather background, which implies the possibility that natural leather is used for the flagship handset. those specs are said to include a Quad HD panel, Snapdragon 808 or 810 chipset, and a 16 MP camera with OIS on the back.

Moving on from the hardware and design novelties, the software experience is expected to be revamped, claims Korean media today. Allegedly, the LG G4 will be arriving on its specs high horse with what gets called "a dual-mode user experience." The flagship will apparently offer you two interface modes - a more general and basic one, which will be easier to use, and an expert mode, which will clutter your visuals with a complete set of LG UI features. In the expert mode, for example, you will have more camera functions to choose from, but it looks like that "expertness" won't be applied only to the camera app, but throughout the interface, too.

If they have both Stock and the LG UI that would be amazing. Too bad this doesn't sound like the case here. Similar but not quite.

Samsung has been offering Easy mode for more than 2 years now.

Good thing this article isn't about Samsung. Maybe someone who wants easy mode, but also wants a removable battery and SD slot is interested.

Hm, if it's got an sd card reader it will lag big time after 2 or 3 months of use as the hd fills up as the bandwidth of the phone is damaged big time by the sd card reader slowing down the r and w speeds when it new and this is without even using an sd card in the phone It's like adding an sd card to the same cable that goes from your pc ssd hd Please note the pc deals with sd card reader like usb, unlike your phone

If the G4 is anything like the G3 then I'm not getting it. I have a G3 and battery life is pretty horrible. Not to mention the screen gets drowned out in mild sunlight. The phone gets pretty hot also and with the troubles the 810 processor is having I don't see the heat problem going away. Ui is not bad, and yes it has nice small bezels, camera is ok. There are more negatives then positives going for the G3 in my opinion, and if all of these problems are not addressed then the S6 is going to be the next phone for me.

g4 will have a bigger and long lasting battery g4 has better camera and an 8mp selfie cam too im sure lg g4 will have a better screen than g3. 808 is a good choice since it is more optimized than 810

Battery is decent. Screen quality is gorgeous, just a bit dim. It's not that hot, stop lying.

Grandma Mode? Seriously I've never seen anyone using the easy modes on smartphones before. Who is this "feature" for?

Basic mode not easy mode...g2 and g3 had easy mode. but this time is basic mode will be more close to stock android which lack lots of features which LG Ux has.

“Easy Mode is a feature for 1st time smartphone users. It is used to make fonts bigger and streamline smartphone in such a way that help users who like to keep things simple”! Easy Mode generally adds most often used apps, calendar, widget, and other shortcuts to your home-screen to make things simpler for you. LG added an “Easy Mode Launcher” in G4 that turns the smartphone into regular phone which is ready-to-use for starters. There are the instructions to use easy mode on your LG G4 at dexteroid.com kindly visit it
