It looks like it will have a removable battery like the G3 (look at the bottom right side of the phone).
Anonymous, 11 Mar 2015Still no real metal bezel / body. LG's late to the party.I hope they never join that party. Metal frame sure. Metal back, hell no.
For me, having a g2 has been a terrible experience. Bad UI, awful keyboard, stupid and lazy camera and no resistance to drops at all so, the chances of me buying a g4 are zero.
U guys no nothing about how consumer products work right? Always arguing bout how Samsung copied Apple, Apple copied, Apple stole, LG an underdog.. Doesn't matter to them, and they don't give a damn what u think.. if they can take that crazy design and make it better then they will, simply cause they can... And whats all the fuss about taking sides on manufactures n being a fanboy, u realise Samsung, LG, Apple, Nokia CEO's at the end of the day drink coffee together and laugh at your low and undeveloped mentality..its completely different game when the cameras go off..those are CONSUMER products lasting barely 2 years just to get the money out of your pocket nothing else.. can somebody say planed obsolescence? I might be crazy but thing shifting so fast u can't track them any more with no obvious progress, i mean u paying $600 for the new phone thats just a hair better than the last years one and all that marketing is making u think u can't live without those "new" features
Wake up people dammit
for much better everyone waited new LG G4 to coming with 3K screen!!!
so far.. looks good. Now have that SD-slot and exchangeable battery...
Anonymous, 11 Mar 2015this design is what Samsung abandoned while they've really shouldn't...I think it is gorgeous ... morewait... are u saying lg dont copy nobody.... cause i saw multi window in my friends lg g3... wonder who they get that from and is it apart of this new identity u talk about?
Anonymous, 11 Mar 2015one thing i love most in lg mobile is that they are making history first curved flagship phone... moregalaxy nexus was curve and it was a flagship and galaxy round is curve too but if ur argument is that its the first "flagship" phone to have curve then its ntn to jump about is mid range phone had it first.....
Impact, 11 Mar 2015I'm with you the S6 looks more premium but LG is the only company which is able to provide a 5... moreI have both G3 and S5, G3 has the few more mm on all sides which makes it not comfortable for one hand usage (i use S5 with one hand most of the time, but not G3).
But for a phablet person, i agree, the ratio screen/device's size is quite interesting.
But thickness is too much, even for G3.
Kettzy, 11 Mar 2015Those who think this looks better than S6 have serious vision problem or they are plain Samsun... moreI'm with you the S6 looks more premium but LG is the only company which is able to provide a 5,5 inch display in a samsung's 5,1 frame. If you don't know what I'm talking about compare dimensions of the S5 to the LG G3. I as one prefer minimal bezel designs thus I opted for an LG G3 an now a Note Edge.
Don't like the curve back, looks ugly and awkward. Flat back will look more clean and cool especially when you put a case on it. Also with curve back it will be swinging like banana when you put that phone on the table, meh. Not to mention the heating issue on snapdragon 810, a big no no
Those who think this looks better than S6 have serious vision problem or they are plain Samsung haters who just look for a reason to criticize Samsung, even where it is not involved.
There's absolutely nothing new in this phone. It is fat and will look very odd in jeans pockets. Also, the screen size is way too big on this phone, its bad. For screen size, one would consider Note 3/4 over this, any given day.
I'm routing for LG to maintain their successful design language and features from the G2 and G3, while mainly improving a few hardware aspects, their UI experience and optimize the overall software delivery. :) I also agree that the G4 can experiment with making a 5"-5.2" compact model that would maintain all the specs of the main flagship while only reducing the display to FHD. Waterproofing would be a major plus as well!
Them doing so would definitely more than secure their place as one of the top 3 selling brands of this year, as well as getting more persons interested in their name! I would also prefer they stick with (less slippery) plastic as well since at the end of the day, this lust for "premium" build material only further hinders overall satisfaction, as is the case with what happened to the Galaxy S6. A balance can be struck of course (Sony's Xperia Z line),but some persons like me value more freedom and control over our device's hardware especially the ones who aren't planning to buy the G4 on contract and internationally.
Asus and LG can definitely take 2015 by storm, and all they really need is proper execution and sound delivery of their flagships. Let's go! :D
