Have always loved my Xperia cellphones and have had many of the available models, however I decided that as of late Sony seems to only upgrade the internals of their flagship phones with majority of their current models all looking the same. And so comes the LG G4, I did alot of research on this device and my choices were this time ultimately between the LG G4 and the Samsung S6 Curve and unfortunately for my needs the G4 excelled for my needs. If a phone is going to be sealed with a non-removable battery then it needs to be waterproof but since neither the Samsung nor the LG is waterproof this was a deciding factor. That coupled to the fact that Samsung featured non expandable storage made the LG G4 a clear winner in my books. That coupled with the fact that the G4 is a overall bigger phone (easier for my big hands) and having a removable/replaceable battery just strengthens my decision.
Ultimately I chose the G4 and couldnt be happier with my choice. The phone with its premium leather back feels of such high quality, some will say "but the S6 comes with a glass back" but I have experienced this with my various Xperia models and with the amount of fingerprints that feature on the rear of the phone coupled with all the scratches that the glass receives from placing it on various surfaces to me its of no use whatsoever, and the G4 I can chop and change my back covers to suite my style and mood without problem.
Would I recommend the G4 absolutely, "but the Samsung S6 has wireless charging", with a $7 pad I bought off ebay so now does my G4, a minor in comparison to the overall price difference between the G4 and S6.
Thank you LG for doing it right.
nani, 02 Aug 2015LG G4 is d best in market now. M using LG G3 Gold as well. Both r awesome phones. Android is a... moredo you compare daekness reborn game on iphone 5s or ipad mini retina vs high end android devices? 😂😂😂😂
Absolutely love the camera on this phone, it's better than our SLR. Can finally start taking night time shots of lightning with the manual shutter setting. It's lots of fun to just experiment with. As a phone, well all I needed was something to talk and text with, I couldn't care less about apps. Internet browsing is awesome too, it takes into account my fat fingers and helps me choose when I accidentally select more than one small button on the screen by magnifying the area I pressed. Definitely the best phone I have ever had. Only drawback is the cover because you can't stick it onto the in car "stick on" phone holder, but my old phone always fell off anyway. 10 out of 10 !!!

LG G4 is to big. LG G2 dimensions are just perfect. That's why iPhone 6 outsells iPhone 6 Plus seven times over (see: http://www.3g.co.uk/PR/July2015/iphone-6-more-popular-than-6-plus.html). LG should take a lesson from Iphone 6 sales. The size matters. LG G2 size remains perfect. Please LG make G4s or LG G5 with the sa dimensions as G2. You would outsell all other android phones i believe.
Got this beast yesterday and during initial testing, Mobile got heated during Softwares Updates from Play Store and also inside room Camera is producing noise.
Will submit detailed review later.
what bout battery guys ???
why only 3000mah for such a mammoth ??
check out OnePlus2 mobile at half the price it gives almost similar features - 4GB RAM too, only fallback is the bloody SD 810 chipset that is always in summer season
I got this phone, 2 weeks ago.
Also, i had 1 more phone, galaxy 6.
amazing camera & screen! best phone for me. More than galaxy 6.
and easy to left handed.
Amazing phone with bundle of features. Am very happy and worth the money

But I went with the G4 and my friend has the M9. Definitely go for the G4 coz of its stellar camera smooth performance excellent connectivity superb display and good battery life.
i've had this phone for about 2 weeks now. Most amazing smartphone i've handled. 0 lagg, everything you want you got it... just an amazing phone with amazing looks and build quality.
I'm bought a g4 a month ago...wonderful...tho while it was using it it just went off and refused to turn back on..idea rebooted it too but still nothing. Don't know what is should do
big question guy, 27 Jul 2015Does anyone know will LG allow 60FPS Full HD recording in any of the future updates or that wo... moreIt does record in 60fps 1080p. Check the specs again and the options on your phone big guy
I love this phone. Does everything I want it to do. Loving that camera pro mode and that sweet selfie camera makes snap chatting a lot better in low light. Plus, not a lot of bloatware. Gotta love that.
Kushal, 29 Jul 2015Just take my word... its a pathetic device and I tried to reach all customer care guys of LG, ... moreYou sure it's not just you dude? I've been with LG for a while now and never had issue with their customer service. Don't blame a company just because you got unlucky and got the rep having a bad day.
dude, 29 Jul 2015Had the same problem, but I went with G4. Why ? Simple answer: Camera. It just rocks! M9 has ... moreI will try to use the HTC M9 and the LG G4 on a more, "professional" use to see how they square off against one another and against the iPhone 5S and against the Blackberry 10. Other than the excellent Camera and awesome Music Player, I will see how good the productivity can be on the HTC and the G4. I will keep you guys posted. Once more, the HTC camera rocks its just that the G4 Camera is WAY superior, the htc music player feels basic.. but it is NOT bad at all.
