ryga, 12 Apr 2015If this device has hexacore (7cores) I don't think it can beat s6, now LG has plastic back and... morebvecause lg knows how to make a plastic beautiful phone.
g4 does really look classic and elegant phone
Why is it taller than G3 despite the fact that both have 5.5 inches screens and same 3000 MAh batter ( a bigger battery may have increased the thickness, not length anyway)??
149.1 mm G4 compared to 146.3 mm height of G3. Anybody??

Has S5 before but the experience was awful. I had to turn it off the very first day. Entering passwords feel soo outdated & lame once you are spoilt by the fingerprint sensor. So yes it's important but quality matter too.
Even I wasn't convinced by G3's reviews but when I got a chance to use it for a couple of days, I was surprised to see how fantastic & underrated the device is. Guess same goes for G4, SD810 issues & all such things are just overhyped. Most users don't feel any issues in real life performance of these flagship phones.
AnonD-244086, 12 Apr 2015For its thickness cold be bigger battery insideThicker but used it for camera !
I'm thinking of getting an s6 64gb. I might be swayed to g4 if camera is a as good or better and the battery is better. Assuming it's not laggy and going to burn my hand
Anonymous, 12 Apr 2015Actually.. it is Samsung who is truly downgrading this year. No removable back and micro SD ca... moreExcept. You purposefully focused on the couple things that downgraded, while making up/exaggerating some.
While leaving out everything else.
Everything else is a upgrade. Many of new and home brewed tech. And the glass back has been proven to be on of the strongest surviving in drop tests.
Whatever you replied to was probably trolling too... But yours is no less as well.
Why is a fingerprint scanner a must have feature on a phone? To date I have not used a phone with this feature and honestly I feel my phone is just as secure (I have the Find My iPhone feature activated on my iPad and I have Cerberus on my S3 for added security though I have not yet gotten around to activating the BB protect on my Z3 Jakarta) if the need for it is security based. If it's so I can take my pulse, I don't need that either. I know Apple has just released a "Health Kit Suite" which I think is the best approach to this "self diagnosis" craze as it has more logical and tangible real world applications.
If this device has hexacore (7cores) I don't think it can beat s6, now LG has plastic back and nobody complained, give that to samsung and see bashing, if the display of this fone is anything close to what dey wrote here, then I'll say "thumbs up and nice job LG" at one time I considered getting an LG fone, but samsung has a way of making the type of phone I want. So in the absence of samsung, LG is ma next phone.
AnonD-244086, 12 Apr 2015For its thickness cold be bigger battery insideExactly.
Taller and wider and for the third year on a row same thickness and sane size battery. When last year the combination was faulty.
LG needs to market Quantum Dot heavily. Assuming it actually makes a great display.
beauty of the G3 was the size how can the G4 be wider and taller ?and thicker bezels they have gone backwards.very upset!
Very sexy design and ergonomic.One thing which is disappointing is the larger footprints than its predecessor.
Anonymous, 12 Apr 2015What it does beat it in is being much less susceptible to screen burn-in, which my S5 exhibits.AMOLED as used in Galaxy Note 4 and S6,have been objectively certified to be the best Screen on any Smartphone,as testified by DisplayMate and other reputable sites including Gsmarena,you don't have to like Sammy,but as they say,the numbers don't lie..
It would be really cool if they launch similar leather back covers for G3 as well. It would be like a refresh to the users who do not choose to upgrade.
The only thing I'm disappointed in is that mono rear speaker. The G3's one was actually really bad in sound quality and position, this one looks the same. Otherwise I like the design a lot.
is there a dual sim international version and does it have a finger print sensor.really it needs an on screen fingerprint sensor. and the bezels dont seem thin! it is also taller then than the G3 and the same width and still the same thickness when everyone is going thinner thats a deal breaker.i was looking forward to this but its broken my heart looks like S6 here i come.
