LG G4 Camera Samples

While we work on getting complete comparisons up between the LG G4 and the other flagship devices, as well as the full review, we figured we should get up a few camera shots for all of you, just so you can see what to expect from the LG G4. To recap the specs, the G4 features a 16MP rear-facing camera, complete with optical image stabilization (OIS) and laser auto focus.  (more…)

Question of the Day: Why Aren’t You Buying the LG G4? Why are You?

Like with any flagship, I get the feeling that the DL community is torn on the LG G4. Some love it, others don’t. Some are buying it the minute it becomes available (27% of you), and others will keep their current phone or wait for something in the future that is more appealing to them. And you know what? That’s the way it should be. Not every phone is built for everyone, well except the iPhone. (Hah!) In all seriousness, choices are what makes Android so great. The LG G4 is another of those choices.  (more…)

Here are the First 4 LG G4 TV Commercials

With the phone official, LG is getting ready to ramp up promotional tactics for its newly unveiled flagship, G4. To kick off the campaign, they went ahead and released the first four TV commercials that you will likely see in the US and other places around the globe. Each focuses on what LG has deemed are the phones major selling points:  the 16MP f/1.8 camera, Quantum IPS display, and leather backing.

The commercials come in both 15-second and 30-second spots, but to give you the best presentation, we embedded all of the 30-second spots below.

Tell us what you think – are these the types of ads that are going to help the G4 cut into Samsung so-far-so-good Galaxy S6 numbers?  (more…)

FYI: LG G4 Doesn’t Support Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0

“G4 has Quick Charge 1.8 Amp capabilities along with wireless charging.” That’s the official word on the LG G4’s lack of Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 charging capabilities.

We asked LG specifically yesterday, because there had been some confusion on the subject. After all, this phone runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, so it wouldn’t be crazy to just assume that the phone also was equipped with Qualcomm’s quick charging technology. Again, it doesn’t have it.  (more…)

Here is the LG G4 Official Product Video

Feeling a little hungover after yesterday’s LG G4 festivities? We are too. But what better way to cure a hangover than another beer G4 video?

This morning, LG posted the “official” product video for their new flagship smartphone, one that is ripe with drone footage taken on the phone, overviews of its camera, shots of leather being cut and shaped before being applied, butt seam rubbing, and tours of Sydney, Australia.

Even if you need a break from the G4 for a minute, the views of Sydney are at least worth a look. Trust me.  (more…)

Tuesday Poll: Is the LG G4 Your Next Phone?

Have you seen enough of the LG G4 after today’s festivities to know whether or not you are going to buy one? I would imagine that many of you have, thanks to this full list of specs, a comparison to the Galaxy S6 and One M9, our hands-on gallery, and Tim’s first impressions. We’ve tried to give you everything we can, outside of price, because LG and its carrier partners have yet to reveal that important bit of information. Still, we know it will probably drop in at $199 on contract and anywhere from $600 to $700 without one. There are few secrets left.

Tell us, did LG impress you with all of its Quantum IPS display and f/1.8 camera talk? Did they convince you that you need a leather back and removable battery? Or are you disappointed that the phone looks a lot like the G3, is using a Snapdragon 808, doesn’t have the premium materials of the Galaxy S6 or One M9, and skipped on the fingerprint sensor?

Let us know!

LG G4: Hands-on Video and Impressions

Before I got my hands on the G4 from LG, I did not know quite what to expect. Sure, any company can tease that they have made a great successor to last year’s flagship, but with LG diving headfirst into leather backsides, while also upgrading their display and camera technology, I slightly assumed they could easily miss a few points of interest for users, such as in-hand feel and battery life.

After the device was unveiled in its entirety, all of the media in the venue filed over to the demo area. I finally got my hands on with the G4, and right when I picked it up I said, “Oh, this feels nice.”  (more…)

LG G4: Hands-on Photo Gallery

Here is a hands-on photo gallery for the LG G4 to keep you busy, while we patiently wait for our hands-on video to upload and go live on YouTube.

From the time I have spent with the device, I am pretty darned impressed with the 5.5″ QHD display, 16MP rear-facing camera with OIS and Laser Auto Focus, as well as the snappiness overall in the device from the Snapdragon 808 processor and 3GB of RAM.  (more…)
