LG G4 vs LG G3 vs Apple iPhone 6: specs comparison


The newest LG flagship, the G4, will play a pretty important role in LG's portfolio, as it will be the company's answer to the best that Samsung, Apple, and their ilk will unleash on the market. 

As such, the Android gladiator will most probably have a pretty hard time on the arena, as some may argue that it's not boasting many new features and specs improvements in comparison with the LG G3.

And what's a better way to compare several devices than check out their neatly-organized specs sheets? That's what we are going to do right now, we're about to put the LG G4's specs sheet next to the one of the G3 in order to nit and pick at all of the specs of the two handsets. We've also thrown in an iPhone 6 for a good measure.

The LG G4 has really great specs. Including the 2 cameras with the front one now offering 8mp, which should be good enough to scan your eye for login. BTW why would the iPhone 6 use 1600 MHz ram in the first place if the CPU is only clocked at 1.4 GHz. So you got that wrong PA.

The G4 is 64 bit, and is running the latest 64 Android lollipop. The G3 is only a 32 bit CPU and can never run the 64 bit version of Android. Besides all 6 cores for the 808 CPU can run simultaneously.
