  • LG's leather G4 is the swiss army knife of smartphones with a killer camera

    The G4 is better everything. Better design, better cameras, better software, and a better display. It's not like last year's G3 wasn't great — it had the best smartphone display at the time — but LG's somehow improved it even more. The 5.5-inch QuadHD (2,560 x 1,440) IPS Quantum display has 20% better color reproduction and 50% greater contrast. It's also 25% brighter and 11% more power efficient.

  • LG G4: A new king of the Android world is crowned

    My first impressions article went live last week and now that I've spent more time with the new LG G4 it's time to provide my detailed experiences. As I mentioned last week, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is a fantastic Android smartphone for the most part, but the battery didn't satisfy my particular needs.

In my experiences, the display is much better even though the resolution is the same, the leather back option feels great and makes the LG G4 one of the most comfortable devices I have ever held, the camera may be the best on a current smartphone, and it's refreshing to see a manufacturer continue to provide expandable storage and a removable battery despite the trend away from these options.

The Galaxy S6 also uses an IR sensor to assist in correcting white balance, so it’ll take some formal testing to determine which phone actually performs better under varying light conditions. According to LG’s press release, the G4 is also able to vary the colour of the flash in response to data from the CSS, although details of how this is achieved have not been provided. What this should mean, is no more unwanted yellow or blue colour casts in your pictures.
