LG shows off more of G4's new user interface (UX 4.0)
LG already announced UX 4.0, its brand new user interface that will be pre-loaded on the G4, but that doesn't mean we know everything about it. Fortunately, today LG released a fresh video that lets us take a closer look at some of the new features included in UX 4.0.

Besides reconfirming that UX 4.0 will debut on the G4, the video presents QuickShot (which enables you take photos by double tapping on the rear key of the LG G4, even when the handset is locked), Gesture Interval Shot (a feature that lets you take four different selfies in a row with one gesture), QuickMemo+, and Ringtone ID. The last feature, Ringtone ID, will automatically compose unique ringtones for each of your favorite contacts - this way, you'll know who's calling without looking at the phone.

As mentioned many times before, LG will officially unveil the G4 on April 28 (that's next week). The new flagship smartphone will offer a 5.5-inch, slightly curved display with 1440 x 2560 pixels, a 16 MP rear camera with f/1.8 aperture, and an 8 MP front-facing camera. Other features might include a Snapdragon 808 (or 810) processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a 3000 mAh battery. Some LG G4 models will have real leather on the rear cover, while others will have plastic backs.

Not bad, G3 UX3 was a bit on blend side excepted for the knock code. Competition helps bringing "new features", Quick Shot has been around on Huawei's phones. Gesture interval and autocomposer of ringtones are good enhancements. I see also that we can slide to take calls like on Galaxys. Quickmemo+ could serve as a good webfilter if it really works that good :)

Agreed it did look quite bland especially that damn teal color everywhere. This one looks much more colorful and will compliment the qhd screen much more.

The last thing I want is a private corporation to have my finger prints.

LOL! @ the part about checking calls during a work out. If you are able to stop and take a call during a workout you are not really working out or are serious about your workout. Same goes to people who go for a "run" but are able to stop and take a photo of that "hill" the apparently "ran" up and post on Instagram. And people wonder why they aren't loosing weight or reaching their fitness goals. If they actually "worked out" instead of spending time on their phones or worry about their compression gear or bringing their glucose lollies or their camel backs they would actual get to the results they want. Fitness is a simple and straight forward process but people make it complicated than it really is.

Leave all your crap at home/car get out and start! All you need some comfortable clothes, shoes and a bottle of water. (Music optional) I need my energy bars BLAHBLAHBLAH. What about my recovery BLAHBLAHBLAH. I need to track my activity BLAHBLAHBLAH. If your struggling for energy it's because you are unfit and need to get fitter. If you are struggling to recover after each session it's because you are unfit and need to get fitter. If you feel the need to track/share your activity you are doing this for the wrong reasons. You are unfit and aren't moving around much anyway so you have nothing to track/share. Plus the whole the word "Workout" is for the lazy and unfit. When you "Workout" you are doing it out of convenience when you "Train" you are doing it with a purpose in mind.

You obviously don't have children or run a business. I would definately interupt a workout if there was a problem at home or at work.

Well oyu actually burn more fat while resting/low-tempo than actually doing the hard portion of the workout, so stopping to take a picture of that hill could actually be beneficial.

I think that's a real gimmick but has real application in the espionage sector.

I'm pretty excited to see the final G4. But I don't get their call id feature. This functionality was always possible on most other phones so why to make it sound like an innovative new feature? It's not. It's just a feature which most of the phone can do, so nothing worth to talk about. The quickshot thing sounds pretty good, especially if you have kids. My daughter never holds still if she notice that i try to take a picture. So this could definatly help to make some fast snaps. We'll see next week. Hope the G4 will hit the store almost right after the launch event. Don't want to wait another 1 or 2 months (or even longer as it's the case for the g flex2)

Looks very nice, the icons and widgets look clean and unobtrusive.
