Yes, G4 is a good phone but like I said, others still prefer a smaller size with the same internal specs, what LG is doing is slightly reducing the size and downgraded the internal specs. Apple's 6 and 6+, Samsung Note 4 and S6 and Sony Z3, Z3C are perfect combos giving consumers an option. LG G4 is alone and not all people like to stretch their thumb to reach the upper icons.
I had this phone since Monday. got it from a telco in our place. all i can say is this...the phone is superb. for those who are having concerns about battery life, here are some tips i got from the internet to maximize it:
1. Lower down the brightness level of the phone. I set it 35-50% only coz the display is so bright at 100% that you wont need set it at that point.
2. GPS - instead of setting it at "HIGH ACCURACY", I set it at "Battery Saving" so i caan use the battery life on some other apps that I use more often.
3. I also removed "Auto Sync" for all the emails and other accounts that I have connected to my phone. Though for some, it will be more important that they get the emails immediately.
Here are some things I can say about this:
- very good screen resolution
- i ahve also experienced heating, especially when i first had it and setting up everything i need in the phone. i downloaded apps simultaneously, maybe that explains the heating. Anyway, I experienced that same with my Iphone 5. Worst, i experience the heating in my Iphone 5 during calls.
- No lags...as in..i forgot i opened a couple of apps. and they are all working in the background. and yet i have not seen it lag.
- its nice to hold. its not heavy. fits just right in the hand. I had huawei g610 before. dont get me wrong that phone too is superb when it comes to performance, but its too heavy for me. i usually experience tiredness of the hand when i am using it. But this LG G4, gosh i have it in my hand most of the time and no feeling of "ngawit"
- call sounds are good.
- fast browsing capabilities. i dont know how lg does this but i had 2 phone simultaneously browse a certain site, LG G4 opened the site faster.
I am kind of satisfied with this phone. I am not sure about some who had bad experiences with the phone.
Please tell me if anyone knows i bought this phone lg g4 before one week but suddenly i found a green minor dot on lcd screen what to do how it can go i reset my phone but it is still there is lcd break or any setting issue...
junb2015, 06 Aug 2015What made me stay away from LG G4 is that it's huge size, Apple has IPhone 6 4.7" Galaxy... moreWell said couldn't agree more. I have an sg4 which I feel is just right. When it's time to up-grade I will probably go for an sg6 but that's as big as I want to go.

It is great smartphone, I am very satisfied.
Any one facing lag in the multitasking when removing recent apps one by one?
junb2015, 06 Aug 2015LG abandoned the compact design of G2 and just keep on increasing the screen size. Hi junb2015 that is correct but actually the screenaize of the g3 and g4 isbthe same bit the size of the phoen is little biggee. A few weeks ago ilI saw that Lg was planning to have a G5 a bit more compact than the g4 and the g3

What's worse is that LG release a slightly smaller version such G4 Beat at 5" but hardware are downgraded. 5". LG needs ti rethink their strategy
I just got my LG G4 and i have to say its amazing compared to my old LG G3. The battery life is way better I also had the opportunity to feel the Galaxy s6 but actually the LG G4 makes me feel a lot more amazed with that leather back. Everywhere I go people say wow is that the LG G4? And thats because ita different. I really believe that this phone is one of a kind
In india its a dual sim mod3l and i wanna know whether it is a 4g and 3g or 4g and 4g connection. Also i saw in some blogs stating its battery is draining and taking longer time to charge. Any comments on this? And hiw about otg support? Pls reply friends...

InsanitySage, 29 Jul 2015It does record in 60fps 1080p. Check the specs again and the options on your phone big guyI am sorry bro but try playing the video you recorded in 1080p with GOM Player and press Right Click on the video - Playing FIle Info (Third from the bottom). It says under the Frame rate 30 frames/sec. The GSMArena info is wrong unfortunately.
I am wating for an update since the next Moto X has the same CPU and GPU and it does support 60FPS in recording in 1080p, so they should just update the camera software it's not a hardware thing...
Well with decent use i got 24 hr of use with 24% remaining and with heavy use i get 14 to 16 hrs....better than my note 4 dual sim....i just love lg g4 ...the best of android world...then i love htc phones....samsung are too laggy....
