Don't know if I've just been unlucky or what. I loved the phone but it started missing calls..People were calling and getting straight though to voicemail with no sign of a missed call on the phone. The unit was replaced by Vodacom but the replacement did exactly the same thing. I am now waiting for the 3rd phone to try again otherwise I will have to look at something else, regrettably.

M9 has everything else, but I would only exclude the front speakers. Other than that both phones are super fluid and all. It depends on what you want from the phone. Do you listen/watch more media on the phone without the headphones or you like taking great shots and making videos on a regular basis. Go over to YouTube and checkout some of the comparisons.

Have been playing with both phones. I love it however, the G4 seems smoother and lot more fun to play with. The Camera and Music Player are way superior over the HTC M9. The LG interface is easier to navigate for some reason to me. HTC and LG despite both being droids, they feel VERY different from one another. Personally I would recommend the G4 over the M9 after having played with them. Also the G4 has a lower price and doesnt seem to be as fragile looking like the HTC or the Samsung Galaxy

I have been saving money for a new phone. However, after a few weeks of reading reviews, opinions, video watching, etc. I'm currently lost. The phones that I had an eye on were Samsung Galaxy S6, Sony Xperia Z3 Plus, HTC One M9 and LG G4.
I have manged to shorten the list to HTC One M9 and the LG G4. Reason is, for me the Galaxy S6 lacks a SD card and the 64/ 128 GB versions are way expensive. I have tested a Sony Xperia Z3 and the battery life is amazing. However, according to reviews, the Sony Xperia 3 Plus has overheating issues. I currently own a HTC One M8 on contract bases, sometimes it lags when scrolling through Facebook but other than that its a great phone. I have e little doubt about the HTC One M9 though, since it has the same processor (Snapdragon 810) as the Xperia Z3+ which seems to be causing the overheating issue. What are you guys thoughts?
big question guy, 27 Jul 2015Does anyone know will LG allow 60FPS Full HD recording in any of the future updates or that wo... moreI have the G2 and it has 1080p@60Fps so I'm sure they kept that ability, and from reading the specs I believe the g4 can render 4K videos since its max camera capture passes 4000 pixels.
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!

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!!

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?
