Description

The LG G4 certainly isn't the "radically different" smartphone LG executives promised, but it isn't last year's phone either. The new kid in town features significant hardware improvements in the form of a IPS Quantum display, a 64-bit hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, a 16MP rear camera full of innovative technology (three-axis OIS, Color Spectrum Sensor), better battery life, and much more! The smartphone is available in Metallic Gray, Ceramic White, and Genuine Leather finishes.
