Few surprises, or rather, nothing that is not already knew or sensed in the newly introduced LG G4, though no launch the Korean firm has been without expectations and above all, good vibrations.
After confirming all the leaks was the important part, the one on one, the time when impressions become realities and this aspect, the LG G4 have to say that does not disappoint.
Unlike Samsung decided to “clean slate” with the design of its new Galaxy, with their pros and cons, as we could see a few days ago in the analysis of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge-, LG is more reserved and choose to keep the key points of design that also worked in the LG G3.
- Android 5.0 operating system Lollipop
- Display: 5.5-inch Quad HD
- Resolution: 2560×1440 megapixel cameras 16/8 3000 mAh
- Internal Memory Capacity: 16GB, 32GB
- Battery: 3000mAh capacity
- Processor: Hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor
Unibody aspect, but without being, the new LG G4 shows a solid polycarbonate body with removable rear cover allows access to the Nano SIM slots, the microSD card (up to 128 GB) and 3000 mAh battery. Come on, a mobile of lifelong adding as a slight curvature of only 3 mm of the screen, according to officials of LG reduced by 20% the chances of breaking in a frontal impact, and facilitate grip, something that can corroborate this first contact LG G4.
LG still carried away by the current of noble materials and “inviolable” bodies, proving that plastic can also be “premium”.
Being able to remove the back cover G4 LG, the Korean brand extends the range of customization options thanks to an assortment of tapas nourished with colorful also opens the door to unusual materials like leather and ceramics.
The back cover is available in leather 6 colors (Black / Brown / Red / Blue Sky / Beige / Yellow), ceramic white with 3D design, which will not come to Spain-, gold and metal.
The feeling on the hand are fantastic: very solid, comfortable to handle even with one hand, elegant and with a very nice touch especially in leather with cover versions that add an interesting differentiator plus you, that if it can not be the tastes of everyone, and we still generates slight doubts about its resistance to everyday use.
Although we can not be led to misunderstanding, there is a palpable quality jump between the proposed LG and other flagship with unibody aluminum body, although the LG G4 is so well settled that the differences are less obvious.
Manufacturers, when launching new flagship market, intended to surprise on the appearance of the camera. Every time the cameras of smartphones we carry in our pocket are closer to the quality offered by the DSLR market. They have already replaced almost entirely to digital cameras and it is not surprising to see people immortalizing memories of a trip with your smartphone. In addition, the convenience of being able to share it immediately by social networks is also a plus, right?

The LG G4 keeps emblematic and control buttons in the back, I personally am not in favor of them, although I admit it’s a matter of getting used to. As the camera remain hidden and not protrude from the ground terminal. Of course, you keep in mind that the lid is slightly curved which causes a rolling quite annoying when we interact with the G4 on a flat surface.
This is a tricky time for the review to talk about the device battery. Here they are of little use numbers as poor management of energy consumption or the little optimization software can convert high-current battery in a heap.
LG G4 was tested over a week and have been able to calculate the energy consumption of this device. On paper we have a equipped with a 3000 mAh battery that promises to make us get through the day without breaking a sweat terminal. When I saw these specifications I expected 5-6 hours of screen. Considering other terminals in the market. But my surprise was when at the end of the day, with 13% battery, at about twelve o’clock after unplug morning showed four hours of screen. Squeezed a little more battery bringing it to 3% and GSMonitor marked me 4 hours and 30 minutes of screen.
The front is almost completely monopolized the screen, with very small bevels on the margins and space just as much at the bottom and top. In this aspect the G4 LG optimizes the space very well, and despite its generous screen is not perceived bulky or heavy -only 155 grams-.
