its simple..if you compared G4 with S6/edge..than in my opinion G4 is the better choice although i,m using S4 right now.bigger and removable battery plus sd card with 2TB capacity..unique design .. only cons in my opinion is there software..which need improvement. otherwise its good option at least u don't have to charge your battery less than 24 hours.like S6 every 10-12 hours u need charger...

Why don't YOU design a phone and let us be the judge.. hows that? Come up with a design and post it here for all of us to see so we can your version of what a phone should be..
Anonymous, 24 May 2015Obviously it's because it's a flagship with last gens GPU and less CPU cores than the rest.
T... moreok, but it is LG's flagship. LG does not have better then that.
yes Sammy have fagship with better spec, but Apple does not,as many others.
so you can't say SD808 is bad choise...it's better then last years SD801.
and if you really want to say that all phones without top of the range SoC have that as "disadvantage", well then you can say that to all phones exept S6. and that brings us to idea....they are doing that intentionally.
why cant we rade same "disadvantage" when reading about Sammy A7?
no, only LG have "disadvantage" with less powerfool SoC, even if it is working good.
as i wrote before, i don't have any interest in this phone...it's to big for me, have bad battery, and to expensive (i woud rather buy some Meeizu,Xiaomi flagship for 1/2 price and go out to drink and enjoy for rest of that money), but it's funny to se how Samsungs marketing is working by BS copetitors
[deleted post]To some extent, the opposite is true: they expect too little. They want a shiny toy and don't care about the details.
Improved cameras and screen, better processor than G3, improved looks
Awful battery, bigger, thicker than G3, bigger bezels compared to G2.
For me G2 is the sweet spot. In normal terms just as fast as G4, good camera and much better battery life. Also it is pocket friendly, because G3 and G4 are much bigger and offer only 0,3 inch more screen
Plus Snapdragon 800 and 2 GB RAM can handle 1080p screen as good as Snapdragon 808 does with QHD
[deleted post]Expecting a better battery, brighter display, same size if diaplay size hasn't changed and either not making it thicker or make it thick with a bigger battery than its predecessor,.... all these are too much according to you? Really?
Anonymous, 24 May 2015Try using your brain. That's throughout a day. Nobody is getting 18-24 hours on screen on time... moreMore likely 5h max, some flag phones almost double that...
And considering the build and mediocre SoC for 2015...
Just Not worth the pricetag in my book...

Anonymous, 24 May 2015Well you said it. 5-6 OST. This is not a day, is it?Try using your brain. That's throughout a day. Nobody is getting 18-24 hours on screen on time and hardcore use.... Duh?
Saurav Ghosh, 24 May 2015And let me tell you another thing. That display is better too, than G4. G4 has awful over-satu... moreI just found out from using aG Flex 2 that they have come saturation profiles in the settings.
Three of them. Natural, saturated, and vivid. Something like that.
So I'm guessing the G4 should have that too.
But nobody has mentioned it so I had been saying otherwise until I recently discovered this
raky.b, 23 May 2015 why is this disadvantage :"Chipset isn't top of the range"!?
what, all phones must... moreObviously it's because it's a flagship with last gens GPU and less CPU cores than the rest.
Though in the CPU department it works out because it throttles less. But still for a flagship the SoC is not the top of the line at all this time around
EthanX, 23 May 2015After reading the HTC M9 review and this one, I really can't understand why for HTC the critic... moreCause while HTC improved the cameras they messed up. And went way backwards in battery life with a bigger battery.
And even went backwards on the display.
The G4 improved the display and camera a lot.
mas39, 23 May 2015I really find it strange that people need a removeable battery, in the 15 years that i've been... moreJust because you don't find it useful personally doesn't mean it's not useful to many. Or that they are doing something wrong to appreciate something that useful. That's ridiculous. And it's something that should just be a user right. It's more practical for the people that do care.
Friendlycare, 23 May 2015So what's wrong with my opinion? I'm just telling my experience based on my testing g4 unit .... moreAnd you are still just rambling about how superior it is as if you are replying just to hear yourself gloat rather than make direct replies
This 2015 flagship is way behind it's midrange sibling LG AKA in terms of battery life. AKA talktime web browsing video playback and endurance 73h 23:20h 10:38h 11:45h, G4 16:40h 7:54h 7:23h and endurance 54h. What happened LG? An extra free battery is not the solution.
LG why u do dis... I love G2 because of the battery, compactness and smoothness...it maybe unpopular opinion but I really love LG keyboard and UI in G2...
I really looking forward to G4 but yeah,I'm skipping flagship this year and stick with my G2 for a while and waiting for G5 then...
