I bought this phone and the HTC One M9. I compared the LG G4 with the Blackberry Z3o, Classic, HTC One M9, and iPhone 5S. Gotta say the Camera rocks! Pictures are so crisp and video is excellent! just like the HTC. The music player quality sounds superb, specially the customer and surround sound options on the EQ. Personally find the music quality better than the iPhone and Blackberry music player, and the HTC did not have a music equalizer. Only thing I did not like at first was the volume and lock keys on the back but quickly got used to them. The display is brilliant like the iPhone's display and better than the Blackberry's or the HTC. The G4 got really hot just like the HTC, mind you these phones are only a few hours old.. but to be honest the heat didnt bother me. Typing on this phone is really easy. Keyboard feels decent. I find the keyboard on the Blackberry Z30 (and Z10) just way smoother, and second would be the iPhone. The processor is very smooth on the G4 just like the HTC but Youtube tends to lag a bit nothing bad at all just a few like lags... The Blackberry browser is the best, second I would say Safari, followed by Chrome. The HTC seemed to be the more dominant processor much smoother. Despite the HTC and G4 being droids, they both have a completely different feel from one another. You can't go wrong with either. I quickly fell in love with the G4!! This phone rocks!!
I buy this phone and I'm loving the camera i dont need to buy SLR and GoPro Anymore ! But the battery still sucks.! But this is a Good Phone!!
Does anyone know will LG allow 60FPS Full HD recording in any of the future updates or that wont be the case ?
I can't imagine a flagship device competing with Samsungs without this option, it's ridiculous!

Leather do not get toohot/cold, it is the best material to use on phones back, on vehicle seats. LG just like BB has done a great job, I'ill be getting one myself.

So many great options all very complete from Android iOS Blackberry and Windows! And thanks bud I am going to buy the G4 and add it under my belt. Looks like a great phone and I feel very confident about it!! My iPhone and Blackberry will have a new bud in their team!!
Romano, 23 Jul 2015OMG I want to buy this phone.. Hate the back button but love the software features! Specially ... moreHonestly the G4 is fantastic. I thought it would be too big at first and had my concerns about performance but not any more. The size and shape is spot on. It might not win most benchmarks but you wouldn't see any difference in performance compared to its main competitors. I can't find fault with this device except I wish it came with better accessories in the box like a fast charger but they are cheap enough to buy. check out flossy Carters review on YouTube. http://youtu.be/bTYyxbBMUzY this guy gives real opinions and reviews on phones and accessories.
OMG I want to buy this phone.. Hate the back button but love the software features! Specially music player and camera! I currently use iPhone 5S and Blackberry Classic and love both! Would love to add a good droid to my arsenal, and i think LG G4 is the best way to go.. what you guys think? Would you recommend Samsung, HTC, iPhone 6 or Blackberry Leap instead of the G4?
MaTambayTa, 22 Jul 2015Is LG G4 cheap in price. Can someone please tell me how t much is this phone and please tell m... moreI think it's ranging from 25,000php to 35,000php. It's already available in the Phillipines.
You can buy it from Amazon for $199.99 with contract or $649.99 new without contract. That is probably NZ dollars though. Looks like an amazing phone especially compared with my Samsung Ace 3
Is LG G4 cheap in price. Can someone please tell me how t much is this phone and please tell me if there is someone from the Philippines who can help me? I guess I will have a choice to purchase this kind of phone.
Andis86, 22 Jul 2015They use pork skin. This skin is strong enough, one of the strongestPork skin. Very interesting. No wonder they never mentioned it. LG are selling swine leather back panel to us people. Noted. Btw, why use leather? Doesn't it retained more heat. That will increase overheating problem. What's next? Fur back cover? That would sound very fashionable and impractical but people will still buy it. A friend of mine glued fur fabric on a casing she bought. It look really nice to hold and make a nice pillow in office.
S . SUDHAKAR, 17 Jul 2015True. Worst battery backup and G4 has no option to set the resolution of pictures and videos l... moreif that camera has set for the best...why should u change the resolution...That camera is build for editing in computer...just like RAW image...so, why u need to change the resolution?...because saving a memory? G4 has removable memory card slot...no need to scared....really talk nonsense...
LG G4 done good job to keep expandable memory. Its because 5 minute of recording 4k video use 1 gb, pictures in daylight 10-12 mb. Built in memory with 32 gb is too less if you want keep all pictures and videos on same device. So for the price lg g4 is better than s6. I woudnt buy s6 32gb and 64 gb versions as it would be problem with space in hard drive later and 128 gb version is too expencive. Some people will say, cmon use clouds, but it will spend my phone contract data and drain battery. Also LG is winner by camera, on non moving object g4 is same as s6, than object is moving g4 is complete winner. Only what is not good enough is audio recording, also i dont enjoy music so much as on samsung or on iphone. G4 screen is oversaturated but brighter and better to see in sunlight. Battery works better than on s6.
