LG straps the G4 to a drone. The result? A stunning video promo

The G4, LG's flagship smartphone for 2015, is already on the shelves and already proved that it's among the very best Android smartphones you can get right now. Being a flagship on such a competitive market means that the manufacturer has to come up with a number of innovative ways to promote and showcase the strengths of its product.

As a result of this, the newest promo video that LG just released aims to give us a better understanding of the G4's video-recording capabilities. Thus, a G4 unit got attached under a drone, which warranted for some pretty nifty footage that was used in the latest rather dramatic promo. Landscape shots and panoramic clips aplenty can be observed in the video right below.

Apart from the video-recording capabilities of the 16MP, 1/2.6" camera sensor in terms of quality, we also get to see what LG's improved OIS 2 technology is capable... and incapable of.

See, attaching a high-end smartphone to a drone is one way to draw attention to your product, but it could be a double-edged sword - in certain scenes, one can observe some slight, yet noticeable shaking (visible around the 1:00-minute mark). We wouldn't blame this on the G4's camera OIS, since the phone is not only attached to a stabilizing gimbal, but is also attached to a low-flying drone.
