IT has a SONY sensor!!!!
BTW this sensor is very unique as it has never been used on any other smartphone
its Sony IMX234 sensor 1.12µm pixels, 1/2.6" CMOS size combo with OIS 2.0 with toshiba 8 mp front
and dear friends this is the phone i like to fuck to!!!!
Anonymous, 10 Apr 2015i would agree g3 is a great phone and g4 is better no doubt for that
Jollem, 09 Apr 2015Maybe I've to agree with s5 being good... Still Sony is superior to Sammy in sensor tech and a... moreNote4 can beat any other Sony smartphone when it comes to camera apart from the fact it uses Sony's sensor.
But same time my Lumia 1020 wins in almost every situation over my note4.
Josan1986, 10 Apr 2015ok got your point. But other than real life situation will it be evident in benchmarks ? In synthetic benchmarks, anything can be shown. From cherry-picking the benchmarks that suite your product well to full-out cheating them by overclocking the parts tested when running that benchmark.
That said, current used DDR4 in the phones I saw thus far, has a higher clock speed that most commonly used DDR3, at the same width memory controller. It will give a bigger memory bandwidth, but the only apps that technically could use that would be apps heavy on the GPU. The GPU's in all these new SoCs still are not really strong enough to really need all the extra bandwidth. So, except for maybe having a few benchmarks that show bigger bandwidth, there's no real use.
As said, the main benefit would be the energy efficiency of the new DDR4, but as you don't get the choice in which memory your phone of preference is going to be equiped with anyways, the point is a bit moot. iI will remain no more than a tiny metric in the overal efficiency the phone has.

Generally, DDR4 is just a spec, which tells on what voltage it runs and at which speed range. The speed of the DDR4 in these new phones technically could be lower than the speed of the DDR3 in the most recent phones. Then there is the memory-bus, which for one part is a specific width, which is important for overal performance, but next to that, it's efficiency of the bus that matters. With new DDR standards you need to use a new memory-interface, which can be less efficient than the interface of the older DDR standard (due to years of optimizing), even if the width is the same. This would cause that faster speed new spec DDR memory still does not outperform the old spec DDR, or at least not by much.
Now, technically DDR4 is more energy efficient, when compared to DDR3, which gives phone-builders some extra space to work with, but in the end even that is a moot point, as you buy a package with a smartphone, which has specific performance metrics. One with DDR3 might end up being a more compelling choice than one with DDR4 inside, for many different reasons.
In short, just because the spec sheet says DDR4, it does not mean the phone will be better due to it. It likely has a bit better memory-performance, but average Joe likely won't ever notice it in real life situations.
LG usually launches the product ahead of the industrial. I want to buy G4 and I like G2 very much too as it is my current phone.

However as I assemble my own comp so I do know a bit about pc components. My last rig assembled in 2012 had the following config : i7 2600k @ 4.5 ghz(OC)/ ASUS P8Z68 V-pro gen3 / HD 7970 x2 / 16 GB corsair vengeance / Corsair H100 / Corsair AX 1200 / Corsair FORCE 3 GT 128 GB ssd / WD Caviar green 2TB / Thermaltake level 10 gt case/
The way I reason is for example if my motherboard supports the next gen of ram I would definitely go for it even if it is backwards compatible, no point in starting with a to be outdated component.
Every component has a certain period after which it starts becoming incompatible with other components or redundant on account of arrival of next gen architecture.

i'm planning to sell my g3 because i want to upgrade to lg g4 soon...
iv got a lg g3 n wow its an amazing phne.... n wat i like is tht 95% of the front of the phne is shiny making it luk very smart wen the screen is turned off n polished. the g4 will owtsmart all smartphnes lyk thy dd wit the g3.

i will buy this phone.

That one number is meaningless. You'd think that 4 must be better than 3, but it's everything behind that piece of memory that makes or breaks it's actual performance. A phone with DDR3 can outperform a phone with DDR4 without breaking a sweat, if the rest of the parameters is in favor of the DDR3 carrying device.
Generally, it's a lot of fan-based talk being outed, nothing else.
