As smartphones have evolved, it has become increasingly difficult for companies to sufficiently differentiate their products from the competition.

  • Seen the Great, Felt the Great!!
    Chitrak Panja (Jun 26, 2019) on Flipkart
    Got this mobile from a retail store about 10 days back and boy what a mobile this is!!! I'll give you an overview of what i am experiencing with this mobile. DISPLAY :- It is one of the best. Its hard to take ur eyes off the screen. Colours are optimally saturated to make things vibrant (not too vibrant as in samsung). At max setting the display is bright and outdoor visibility wont be a problem. Add to this the slight curve and the compact 5.5inch form factor and u have got an awesome display in ur hands. PERFORMANCE :- The Snapdragon 808 as LG claims, seems to be nicely optimised for this mobile. There have been no hiccups so far. The graphics processor could have been a bit powerful though. Nevertheless, it will very much suffice ur daily usage and the occasional gaming sessions. UI :- This is one area where LG has evolved a lot. The UI is a lot smoother and it runs without any lags. LG hasnt compromised on the customisability. Bloatware is minimal and there are a few nice touches that will make using this mobile a lot easier (eg- smart cleaning, double tap to wake, dual window etc etc). CAMERA :- This is perhaps the best smartphone camera available now. Needs no introduction. Its AWESOME. The camera UI is minimal without any unnecessary filters. Most of the times u will find that the Auto mode will suffice, but if u have a bit of photography knowledge, Manual mode is what u would love the most. Ability to adjust the White Balance (in Kelvin values), Shutter speed (from as low as 1/6000 to as high as 30secs), Iso (50-2700), Exposure and Focus is a boon for those who want the best shot possible. Add to this the the ability to save the image in RAW format and u perhaps cant go wrong with this camera. Most of the times people compare this camera to that of S6, but believe me this one is the clear winner. The S6 produces great shots no doubt, but in low light this is the camera u wud want. Daylight pictures are more or less same for both except the fact that S6 produces images that are a lot saturated and may apparently look better to the eye. Same goes for the front camera as well. At 8mp, this is one of the best selfie camera. A few cons regarding the camera :- 1. Video recording and audio capture is not the best. The aggressive OIS makes videos wobbly and audio capture is not that good. There is no 60fps 1080p mode which is a bummer. 2. The camera tends to over expose and sometimes u will find the background light to be blown out. 3. Post processing is quite aggressive and occassionally u may note some artefacts(while u have zoomed in to the image). BATTERY :- Despite the fact that this is a 2k display, i have so far always got a Screen on time of 4-4.5hrs, which is quite good. Moreover, the back is removable and u can easily swap the battery. LG is providing an extra battery and battery cradle charger for those who pre-order/buy the mobile before 15th june. The mobile supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0, but quick charger doesnt come out of the box. The provided charger (of 1.8Amps) charges a bit slow and it will take around 120-130mins for a full charge from 0% (provided u dont use the mobile during charging orelse charging rate will slow down even more). PRICING :- 49990 has now become a standard price tag for flagships and this phone is no exception. But since S6 and i6 are now available for a much lower price, its going to be hard for LG to attract customers (although G4 variant launched in India is dual sim and LG is providing free 3 months screen replacement alongwith 1leather + 1plastic back cover). However, having used this mobile for quite some time now, i must say this smartphone is totally worth the price. All in all this a great phone and certainly one that i will suggest to people in hunt for a flagship. The cons are not deal-breakers and im sure u wont even think about those after a few days.

  • LG is back with bang
    Sunn (Jun 26, 2019) on Flipkart
    LG G4 : It has everything , spec bump screen quality bump battery back up and optimisation (so called optimisation its a marketing term, android is still lacking at optimisation and ironing OS). If you want future proof device LG G4 is your choice. I know everybody thinking about finger print scanner , but its completely useful with Android M OS by that time Android M available to all the devices 2015 devices will be outdated (Trust me android devices will be outdated easily and quickly). Always check only purchased reviews (I have purchased from LG dealer). Find best deal and get this beast.

  • Not a Pearl but better then Diamond.I know chances for improvement are always there but right now its best out there
    Prk Pathak (Jun 26, 2019) on Flipkart
    Pros:- 1. There is not any phone in the market who doesnt heat but now one is there who is flagship having worlds one of best processor fast enough for everything.Does not heat a bit. Completely cool always even on charging. 2.Camera One of best camera i have ever seen on any phone.Back camera is same not much better than S6 but front has many thing better than S6. Camera is great thing in that phone if you wanna buy a phone with beast camera go for it. 3.Display 538 ppi better than any phone quantum display.Not over saturated like S6. 4.UI is best than any phone 5.Processor is best.3gb Ram Beast 6. Android community is not able to develop any game who hangs on that phone i tried chaos rings,brother in arms,Nova,NFS,Asphalt,God of war,FIFA,NBK. Cons:- 1. Battery is not satisfying. You try all effort and you will get max 15 hours.Normal is 9 hours with 3G,Wifi,Display on all 9 hours. 2. Signaling is quite a bit hactic in that phone you usually loose connectivity in FM,Bluetooth,Wireless signal,Phone Signal. 3. After filling it with apps it hangs a little while switching over apps.
