Which leather version of the LG G4 would you get?

The rear back cover of the LG G4 has seen a substantial makeover, as LG exchanged the smooth matte plastic of its predecessor for either a diamond-shaped plastic pattern with optional ceramic finish, or a novel genuine leather, complete with the actual stitching. 

LG opposed the modern smartphone glass & metal design by opting for an "analogue feel", which gives the smartphone a deliberate retro-chic character - genuine leather and all. LG's design decisions certainly won't fit every taste, and the LG G4 is the only spring 2015 flagship phone whose exterior is mostly made of plastic, yet the result is still aesthetically pleasing, especially in the leather-clad version. 

Unfortunately, not all color options will be available on all carriers and in all regions at once, with the black, brown and red seemingly taking precedence, that is why we wanted to ask you which of the innovative leather options you like the most, and which one would you get if you had the chance. Take your pick in the poll below.

Which leather version of the LG G4 would you get?

I'd go for the plastic rear cover

Textbook definition of a troll. If you're not interested, go comment in an article about a device you are interested in. Oh, yeah. Samsung fan here, by the way.

That BROWN should read ORANGE. I'd take the orange leather for something different. But, the lack of a fingerprint scanner has me waiting for a removable battery version of the S6.

Just wondering, is the white model actually ceramic? I doubt it is since ceramics shatter very easily But some reviewers said the white model felt noticeable heavier

According to various handson, it's plastic with ceramic like look/paint.

Oh that's probably true Like how the gray has a metal like look/paint I've been busy with projects and tests, haven't seen many hands on videos yet

Yeah, it's just plastic with unique finishes like its predecessor. I have been a LG fan but not too sure for 2015. They're focusing/saving their resources for the upcoming G Note to intentionally one up the G4, basically how Sammy does it. G phone, G pad, G Note. I like LG allot, but they really need to keep branching off like previously.

I think most of the G4 improvements are cosmetic, like the leather back. I think the G3's screen was good enough and I'm not into photography. I love the G3 but I would have wanted a much bigger battery to get me excited about the G4.

I don't get why you would settle for good enough and not want more.

The option "none of the above" is missing.

Liked the brown one. But I am amongst those guys who prefer small sized phone. Common LG, bring out the "compact" versions. More people will come n embrace you :)

Picked plastic only because I like white the most still.

picked plastic because not a fan of the leather look... although maybe in person i'd like it... if all they offered was leather, i'd have to choose the beige i think

But if you live in a tropical or hot country and your hand's always sweaty? Won't your leather phone become stinky?

The leather looks like ass, complete with part down the middle.
