In order for G4 to succeed, they must announce it asap and feature a micro-sd card (while educating people that the S6 doesn't have one). This is the only way for them to really sell more phones this year.
I hope it has a removable battery. Android phones have a tendency to switch off at times then you can't switch it back on, although this is very rare. I've heard it happened to HTC m8's, and you have to send the phone off for it to be fixed. It happened with my galaxy s4 and lg g3, both of which I was able to take the battery out and place it back in and the phone worked from there. A basic fix with a removable battery.
I m very happy it's a 5.6" screen,not the early mentioned 5.3",better still i hope it's a 3K resolution,certainty i will be more delighted too.
I love you LG.
John G., 16 Mar 2015I agree. The market is flooded with 5,5+ inch phones. Bring back the 5,0-5,2 inch phones!This.
comparing a PC to a phone is a silly notion. If all you do is email and watch videos then i can see this. However try editing a video for broadcast TV, correcting a photo in Photoshop, running Reasons to make music or even coding a web application, and you will quickly be awaken as to how the PC is going to have to live on for the next 10-20 years.
My Mac is 3.36ghz 6 core with 32gigs of ram and editing 4k is still a bit slow. And No 2.2 snapdragon is not the same as 2.2 intel.
LG are legends in making television display that's why they applied that one to the phones their producing as well
John G., 16 Mar 2015I agree. The market is flooded with 5,5+ inch phones. Bring back the 5,0-5,2 inch phones!The G4 will be no bigger than those 5.1" and 5.2" phones you're talking about because of their high screen-to-body ratio. Unless you would prefer an even smaller phone? You can get an iPhone 5, they still sell them.
Alien, 16 Mar 2015Things a phone in 2015 should have to be HIGH END: - SD Card (you brake ur phone, say good ... morePC are not yesterday thing lol. And your little smartphone never going to replace Pc. Live on your own made dream Haha.
5.6 screen will be awesome, anything below 5.5 is too small on a mobile computing device like this. There are plenty of small screen phones out there.
Patikas14, 16 Mar 2015No, no, nooooooo! Why? Where is the 5,3" that you said!?!I agree. The market is flooded with 5,5+ inch phones. Bring back the 5,0-5,2 inch phones!
are you kidding me 5.6 inch,and the note version what would have 7 inch?
Will the LG G4 come with dual SIM (like the D856 & D858 DUAL LTE)and if so how soon after the release of the G4?
MHanz, 16 Mar 2015Oh and before I forget let me dismiss your story on why people don't want thick phones, that's... morePrecisely
The harsh reality of all this is on the horizon. Time will tell.
Just hope LG & co have the foresight to see this and take the opportunity to act on it. Sam sung have done the 'leg work' but dropped the ball with the S6. LG should take the ball & run with it. If they don't - they'll still have the advantage of a larger screen in a smaller profile (less bezels) - I hope!
Things a phone in 2015 should have to be HIGH END:
- SD Card (you brake ur phone, say good bye to ur data)
- Waterproof (do i need to explain?!)
- FHD or QHD display
- NO MORE THAN 5.0 INCHES (Get a note or a phablet if you want more!)
- 4GB RAM
- a good camera that has:
- the NEGATIVE effect - i'm a photographer
- touch to focus (no auto bs)
- I don't care about the front one, i'm not an obsessed chick about selfies & Facebook - i covered mine with black tape :D)
- 3000+ mAh battery (doesn't matter if it comes out or not)
There's a lot more, but I think these are the main ingredients from MY point of view.. Salt&Pepper as u wish :)
P.S. For those who have the idiot ideea 2-3GB of RAM is enough: Since I've bought my smartphone, I haven't touched my PC. PC's are so yesterday's thing! Adapt or die.. in a dusty shelf.. EVOLVE!
