LG used the G4 to set world record for the highest "number of selfies taken in one place"

LG used the G4 to set world record for the highest
LG today announced that the G4 - its current flagship smartphone - was used to set a Guinness World Record for the “longest selfie relay chain”, or the highest number of selfies taken in one place (with the same phone).

The record was set earlier this month in Mexico City, where, in two hours, 746 selfies were taken (either by individuals, or groups) by over 2,500 participants. LG says that the previous such record (531 consecutive selfies) was set in the US.

The G4 that was used to set this new record took a selfie each 10 seconds during the two hours. According to LG, the smartphone "still had plenty of juice left" when the 746th selfie was taken, but they "ran out of people.”

It's no wonder that LG relied on the G4 to set this record. The handset has an 8 MP front-facing camera with wide angle lens and f/2.0 aperture - arguably one of the best front-facing cameras seen on a smartphone.

Earlier this year, Samsung also set a selfie-related record. Helped by its Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3, Samsung managed to convince 12,803 people to take a selfie each in 24 hours.

Afterward, everyone was kidnapped and the G4's were sold off. (Mexico City used to be the kidnapping capital of the world.)

I hope you're not that stupid and have some common sense. No one tells you to wander around alone at night in the city or wear bunch of shiny jewelry and luxury watch in the city.

Lol clearly you've never visited Chicago. No matter where you go anymore, you're not safe. And yes, that applies to those who don't have shiny jewelry or a luxury watch.

It was a joke, admittedly in poor taste. Mexico City has gotten much better in the last decade (or other cities have just gotten much worse).

I wonder how the front facing 8mpx f2.0 G4 would go up against the rear facing 8mpx f2.2 of the iPhone 6. Jokes, im trolling, of course the G4 would win :p
