LG mentions the iPhone 6 Plus on its website to show its lower screen resolution compared to the G4

Usually, when a smartphone manufacturer's website mentions a competing handset, it's just for the sake of comparison, and to ultimately suggest that said handset isn't on par with the respective manufacturer's products. Well, this is exactly what LG is doing now on the official product page of its brand new G4.

As you can see above (or at the source link below), LG says that, "pixel for pixel, the display on the new G4 has a higher resolution than the iPhone 6 Plus. With more than 3.5 million pixels at your disposal, you can see everything in amazing detail."

Of course, the quality of a display is far from being exclusively related to its pixel resolution. But LG is right: the 5.5-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560) screen of the G4 is sharper than the 5.5-inch 1080p (1080 x 1920) display of the iPhone 6 Plus. Obviously, it's also sharper than the 4.7-inch, 750 x 1334 pixels screen of the regular iPhone 6 model. This being said, we're looking forward to thoroughly testing the screen of the G4, which, until now, looks quite impressive.

In the meantime, you can check out this G4 vs. iPhone 6 quick comparison, or you could see how the G4 fares, size-wise, against the iPhone 6 Plus and other flagships.

I don't think LG has room to talk with how dim their G3 display was despite being QHD. Being said the 6 and 6 Plus are several months old. I wonder will LG be talking when the 6S is out.

This is the g4, quantum display looks like it is promosing. Of course it will be better than the g3 which is a no brainer, a company can only learn from their mistakes. We will see if apple finally decide to push qhd screens but the 6 plus is the first 1080p so i don't really see them shying away from that anytime soon.

yeah it's what lg is calling their new display because of their new backlight tech it's supposedly brighter, more energy efficient, and it im proves color accuracy. don't quote me on this tho, just go read pa's articles about the g4.

The chance is slim that they would go QHD. I mean the iPhone 6 is a absolute joke at 750p. And their iPad's are not even QHD. They would use the iPad resolution on their phones only when the battery tech can match the iPads fat batteries. Otherwise, no chance.

Quantum display is marketing speak. Nothing more. Don't buy into the hype. The G4 is rubbish.

To say a device is rubbish without telling the world the details of why you actually think its rubbish, just means your comments are rubbish. BTW LG makes Apples displays for their iPhone and their Apple watches, so I guess you think Apple is rubbish as well.

According to GSMARENA, this tech is already used by Sony in its Xperia devices & some Triluminous tv's and the world knows its a flop for Sony so get over it.


Posts: 436; Member since: Jun 27, 2013

it's a flop just because the phone division of Sony isn't doing well? just cause Sony mobile isn't doing well doesn't mean the tech is a flop. the screens of the Xperia series after the Z1 have been great, in factcomparable to the competition. what are you smoking?

Where did you hear LG made Apple's screens I heard Samsung did.

Samsung makes apple A9 chip not the screen bruh.

the 6s will hardly be better than the normal 6. so yeah they could definitely keep talking when it comes out.

It's not hard to piece it together. Only itards would consider that mind reading. It's common sense and an absolute safe bet that the 6s screen will be the same resolution and quality. Almost every product they made the screen was rehashed multiple times.

so true

i cant tell the future but i can do my best to predict it based on the past. and the past tells me that the iphone 6s will only be a slight upgrade from the iphone 6. and that apple only cares if the ppi of there phones are 326 the iphone 4,4s,5,5s,and 6 all have different resolution but there ppi is the same the 6plus only differs because its screen is 5.5, when September comes I'm 99.99% I'll be right about this. I see you buying a new iphone in your future lol.

Tell me angel, should i buy G4 or wait for Note 5 or 6s Plus?

samsung makes the best phablets so the note 5 for sure.

Actually thinking logically, there is no way you can deny the statement that iP6S is going to sport a similar screen that of the 6. The 5S, 4S and the 3GS were similar to the 5, the 4 and the 3G respectively.

The only thing we could predict is internals. Let's see what Apple can offer this time

You can easily predict Apples greed. iPad 2 screen is same as iPad 1 iPad 4 screen is same as iPad 3. iPad Air 2 screen is only slightly different than the Air just so it can be thinner, otherwise it would be the same. iPad Air screen is better brightness wise too. iPhone 3, 3G, and 3GS screen all the same. iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s screen the same. iPhone 5 and 5s screen the same. The 6s will be the same, 99.9999999999999 percent sure of it. This isn't rocket science.

You are probably true but just to know, there is no iphone 3.

Considering that unless smartphone makers release their products in the same month there will always be a gap between them... Does it really matter that one product is a few months newer than another one if they're being sold side by side as current generation products? That aside, considering it's hilariously unlikely that Apple will go QHD, LG will still be able to say than they have a more densely packed display than the iPhone 6s. Not saying it'll have a better panel, but the claim will still be true.

Um the LG G4 display will crush the iPhone 6s panel for sure. Any imaginary advantage you might give the 6s panel would be due to biased reviewers and the icons on IOS. Run IOS on any Android screen in the past 2 or 3 years and it would kill any iPhone screen.

The G3 was several months old when the iPhone 6 released so the same comparison argument can be made.

Mxyzptlk... 6 and 6 plus are several months old but their hardware is several years old. In terms of technology "Ancient", from smart phone juressic era

76. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Benchmarks says otherwise. Next pointless Apple comment.

No, benchmarks actually agree. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are about as strong as 2-year-old Android devices. Apple lowered the resolution to 750p to keep up with the latest Android phones.
