Anonymous, 01 Dec 2015Which is better, this or p8 lite????If you privilege a sharp screen and an out standing camera your bet should be the lg, if you you'll e an intensive user, running a lot of apps and need a lot of storage maybe the p8 lite is a better choice, although you can add an sd card to both phones. As I know p8 lite has a dual sim option in case you don't use any sd card, that's something you have to take into account
I have this phone for two weeks now and beginning from bad things, the worse is that the battery is total disaster. For sure the developers didn't test it wih mobile data and gps on! I noticed that some pepole dislike the monocolor led light, but i would rather set up a light sensor, so I would not constantly changing the screen brightness to save battery. I did not notice a great difference between this processor and the snapdragon 410 I had previously, although this not a problem at all, I just expected super fast game loading times. 2 GB of ram would be flawless :). The last bad thing I noticed was using the gps, after that my performance app popped saying that the phone temperature was above normal. But I had the same trouble with other phones, but this time I could raise the brightness to 100%, as the firmware also popped up saying that phone was heating too much. A strange thing that happens to me is that when I walking in sunny days, i cannot switch the phone to landscape mode, as the screen brightness diminishes until stay completely black!! Does anynone have experienced this?
The good things is that the screen is...LG, I mean that never disapoints and for sure is one of the best screens of mid range phones. The camera mode is absolutely amazing, and for the ones who are in a dream trip and want to capture special moments, this phone is the right one! One special note for rooted phones fans: this phone is rootable with a little beat freaked out method, but effective, as I did it, and works perfectly! The removable battery, for a phone that has a total fail battery is an extra value! At least the android 5.1 swims as fish in the sea in this phone, with rapid and smooth transitions, and believe that is not by firmware that battery life sucks, as I unninstalled all junk apps, (only possbile with root permision), and the battery life remained terrible.
All the other functions, as phone calls, web surfing, gps work fine.
Remarks: if you are a user that is not more than 3 hours playing games, or 3 hours surfing on the net and does not use the gps in a daily basis, I should buy it, because the main functions work fine and you still can have the phone with battery at the end of the day with 1h playing, mobile internet on all day and a few hours of use in a day. If you are thinking to use this phone somewhat near a tablet, to internet surfing and playing, forget it!
Dont by this phone!?Battery is very bad,only 3 hours in use and you also need 3 hours to charge.
Kruno, 26 Nov 2015It only has red notification light :-( What? Just red LED notification light? I'm fine with that. That's definitely better than having to LED notification light at all like Samsung's A and J series.

I want to buy LG G4 Beat Christmas. Good phone? ? kamerája13mp , 8mp camera or camcorder can be expanded with Micro SD storage space ? thank you very much in advance
I hope this one receives Marshmallow update later on, just like the G3 Beat received a Lollipop update after being released with KitKat.
Here in the Philippines, this phone is sold as G4 Beat. 8MP camera with Manual mode similar to the flagship G4. Priced the same as Sony Xperia M4 Aqua at PhP 12,990 ( about USD 276, inclusive of tax), with some retailers offering Bluetooth headset.
the phone has been released long ago, please update the info (i.e. battery endurancy, screen protection, ...etc.)
