One of the most impressive smartphone releases that ride amongst this year’s flagships is the LG G4, the successor of the LG G3, which was one of the best and most popular smartphones launched in 2014. The LG G4 continues the tradition and comes with some awesome features on board its compact and stylish body, such as a better camera, an enhanced hardware package, a stellar display and much more. If you’re a power user and want to know more about a powerful flagship that will probably put to shame some of its competitors, keep reading and find out more about the spectacular LG G4.

The handset is lonely inside its retail package, as it comes accompanied only by its charger and a microUSB cable used for data transfers and re-charging the phone. Unfortunately, no headphones.

Although they look very similar, the LG G4 has surpassed its predecessor regarding its size and measures 148.9 x 76.1 x 9.8 mm, tipping the scale at 155 grams. The flagship features a different appearance through its subtle inward curvature and resembles a bit with its LG G Flex2 sibling. Its design is nothing you haven’t seen before, but you’ll know that you’re dealing with a flagship when handling it due to the excellent build quality; the G4 feels sturdy and is very well put together. Its rear side features a smooth plastic finish which offers a good hand grip and keeps away fingerprints. If you want something different, there are some really fine back covers from which you can choose and customize your handset.

The LG G4 owns what the company calls a Quantum Display, which delivers more accurate colors and better contrast and brightness. The display is a 5.5 inches Q-HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen which offers a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, has a pixel density of 538 ppi and is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3. As you probably expect, the display is excellent. It offers vibrant and accurate colors (as promised), great contrast and amazing viewing angles. Looking at it is an absolute pleasure and you’ll see what I’m blabbering about when checking it out live. The sunlight legibility is also great.

In terms of software, the LG G4 comes packed with Android 5.1 Lollipop, which has been customized here and there by LG through their proprietary Optimus UX 4.0. Swiping the screen will display the Glance screen, which offers information about the time, weather and your notifications. The lockscreen also displays your notifications and can support up to five shortcuts. Beyond it comes the homescreen, which now enables you to add more on screen buttons (for Dual window, QMemo, QSlide and the notification area). The last homescreen pane is Smart Bulletin, which displays relevant information about your handset.
The notification area holds a row of quick toggles, sliders for the volume and brightness and, of course, your notifications.
Your applications are gathered inside the App drawer. The Dual-window feature enhances multitasking by enabling you to use supported applications side by side. The QSlide functionality has the same purpose and consists in floating apps.
A very useful feature is the single-handed mode, which enables you to move the dialer, navigation bar and the keyboard to the sides of the phone, thus having a more convenient access to them.

At the hardware department, the LG G4 comes loaded with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset, having a dual-core 1.82 GHz Cortex-A57 CPU and a quad-core 1.44 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Adreno 418 GPU, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage which can be expanded with a microSD card of up to 128 GB. The LG G4 will deliver a stellar performance, thus providing you with an excellent user experience. Everything runs buttery smooth, just as it should on a top-notch device like this champ over here.

The LG G4 is well packed in terms of connectivity, boosting support for quad-band GSM, GPRS, EDGE, 3G, LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac with Wi-Fi Direct, Hotspot and DLNA, Bluetooth 4.1 with LE, A2DP and apt-X, microUSB 2.0 with a SlimPort 4K, NFC and there’s also an infra-red port for enabling you to use the phone as a remote.

As I was saying at the beginning, the LG G4 also features an improved 16 MP camera with laser autofocus which takes stills with a maximum resolution of 5312 x 2988 pixels, has a 1/2.6” sensor, a wide f/1.8 lens, optical image stabilization and much more. The camera application offers a plethora of features and settings for adjusting the image quality, such as ISO, shutter speed, exposure and more. In terms of image quality, the handset delivers some stellar results and holds one of the best cameras on the market. The pictures produced offer superb colors, excellent contrast and an impressive amount of resolved detail.
The video camera is also an exceptional performer and will enchant your eyes with some gorgeous 2160p videos @ 30 fps.
A front-facing 8 MP camera also joins the party for making video calls or taking the best selfies.

Some other handy apps and features that come on board the LG G4 are Google Chrome, for ensuring a great browsing experience, Google Drive, which handles your document files, QRemote for allowing you to control your home appliances with your handset, a GPS receiver with GLONASS and A-GPS support, Google Maps for navigation, Google Now, as a personal assistant, LG Health for fitness tracking, two great media players for audio and video playback and much more.

The LG G4 holds inside a 3,000 mAh user replaceable battery and will endure around two days under a moderate usage.
