Under G4 Pros, I'd suggest including the IR blaster. I know most don't use it, but those of us that do use it quite often.

Did they ever post results for the recent Galaxy S6 vs LG G4 camera comparison? Or did it get lost in all the Galaxy S7 news, I don't remember seeing it.

The G4 is the only phone I was ever happy to get rid of (in favor of am S7) the ergonomics were horrible, the battery life was significantly worse than the S7, and it just felt cheap. S7 is a massive upgrade. BUT for the price you can snag a G4 for nowadays, it's worth that. and very good for $300ish

Why compare the S7 to the G4 and not hte G5? Seems like a much better comparison.

The G2 was the last truly great LG phone imo. I thought it killed the Galaxy S4 In their time. That G5 is a new type of ugly.

Indeed, when oh when will they release an updated G2? Surely LG realise there are millions of people waiting for that phone?

Looks downhill now with the G5. Hope they would bring it but failed. See how the V10 successor goes.

In photos 1 and 2 it looks pretty clear that the G4 has better resolution. In the background is a street sign directly behind a lamp. Only with the G4 can you tell the street name begins with the letter D. This is the third source that tells me the Samsung takes better panoramas.
