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...

I can use my Note 3 for one day quite easily, always connected to either WiFi or 3G. I get 5-6 hours SOT without even tweaking a single thing.

G4 has awful over-saturated display, G3's display is pretty average but at least the colour temp is far more decent.
for me, it have some other disadvantages, not a SoC.
1- too big
2- weak battery
yes, it's good, nice, flagship....but, why it costs so much more then G2!?
why is this disadvantage :"Chipset isn't top of the range"!?
what, all phones must have only best performance SoC?
what to say then to all mid and low -edge phones, do you need to write same as their disadvantage!?
ok, i understand flagship must be best, but, does LG have something better?
i did not see it....so his is their best, true flagship.
so, somebody else have better spec, but...you can choose.
HTC have stornger SoC, Sammy too....but Apple doesn't, as many others.
so, i don think SD808 can be disadvantage, it update, and big one to SD 801.
Starting from G2 and then G3...used multiple handsets of the above models...the mail camera glass self developing scratches. ...GPS antenna issue...continues...the most pathetic is LG service. ..just hopeless.
S6 is better than G4 for me, G4 is too heavy,big less battery capacity, This phone will cost LG financially
Wow.. Didn't expect the battery life to be much worse than the G3 (54H vs 63H). Well.. at least it's removable. Too bad LG didn't include the charger to fast-charge it.
I think it's a decent phone. If I was in the market for a flagship I would definitely consider it. The fact it has a Snapdragon 808 wouldnt make a difference to everyday performance and wouldn't affect my decision.
#TRYLGG4 this phone is awesome. Best phone at the moment each other phone i tried had flawed tech or slow software and the crashing issue if overloading the phone doing multiple things at once the G4 never crashed and if it does you can just remove the battery and start again. The S6 and iPhone 6 or 6 plus would crash and freeze on white screen had to go to shops to get them reset
For me g4 is a great phone
Better than g3
It is very safe to say better in overall performance than g3.
AnonD-391800, 23 May 2015It takes exactly 1.5-2 h to fully charge z2 from 1% to 100%. Either you do not own one, or hav... more sometime 100% is not accurate you still need to wait for about 10-20 minutes more before you unplug the charger.
My Z3 takes more or less 3 hours to get full 100%
AnonD-213493, 23 May 2015Hhaha really? z4 will be having same battery life as g4? Next joke pleaseThat could be possible
The Z4 has smaller battery 2900mAh and the Snapdragon 810 is a big problem too

G4 is not the Final Beast phone by LG!
