It's so strange. In every forum, people claim that battery life is one of the most important features of a phone. I just find that recent phones perform exactly in the opposite way. I understand that reducing the thickness of a phone is a problem if you want to implement large batteries. But even this is not valid for the G4. So... It has a nice camera. Screen resolution is overkill. GPU is undersized for the screen. Well... I don't see any feature in this phone which would make me want to buy it.
The battery in this phone is pretty good believe me better than most flagship right now. Just buy it and try for yourself you will see.

AnonD-392541, 23 May 2015What's the battery life for your test unit on average use? Also I took some photos and record 10 minutes videos
AnonD-392541, 23 May 2015What's the battery life for your test unit on average use? First of all the camera is the best in my experienced screen is really good vivid bright and does have a good viewing angles direct to sun light at noon time is still very visible.
Speaker is really loud and good sound clear and deep.
The phone size is fit to me easy to grip and the leather back feels great
The battery as based on my daily tasks which are about internet browsing for more than hour , sending about 30 SMS , watched YouTube videos for an hour and playing games COC and temple ran 2 for an hour I got still 40% of my battery and after I woke up its downed to 29% so all in all I easily managed more than a day.
It good battery.
Just got my LG G4 from LG Trial Program. Have to say the best overall phone I have ever used to take pictures and run benchmark test on. If you are looking for top 3 phone for 2015. This has to one of you consider in 2015.
Anonymous, 22 May 2015It's a downgrade for people who value battery life.Exactly. And screen brightness, and screen to body ratio....
AnonD-398429, 22 May 2015If you read and understand this full review you wouldn't say this phone is downgrade. I'm j... moreYes mate. I did read the full review. And yes, for me, IT IS A DOWNGRADE how much and how easily LG could have done a better phone
Anonymous, 23 May 2015but you cannot beat anyphone with removable battery and extra battery kit... poor you... lolThat's reason why Im getting g4 because of the swappable battery.
For me my testing g4 unit is doing fine in my three days of observation
I'm lucky selected to test g4 for two weeks
Anonymous, 23 May 2015but you cannot beat anyphone with removable battery and extra battery kit... poor you... lolas an xperia z2 user here i found that Sony xperia phones have the longest time to take you to wait before the battery got fully charged I usually waiting for 3hrs and more
DON, 22 May 2015what a poor battery life . only 8hours of Web browsing???? haha even my Sony Xperia T3 las... morebut you cannot beat anyphone with removable battery and extra battery kit... poor you... lol
wow... thats terrible battery life for a flagship
sure, battery kit will help, but i ll pass this one, my note3 even much better than this, dont even mentioned my lovely note4.... lol
This is the third generation in a row that LG fails as much. Worse ergonomics than last generation (thicker bezels), worse battery and when compared to LG G2 (the best in the series) worse gaming performance and barely better general performance (due to the higher needs produced by the higher resolution).
So to sum up: LG G2 (a phone two generations behind this) has better battery, better gaming performance, equivalent general performance, smaller bezels, better ergonomics and there's one thing -just one- that loses handily:worse camera.
So if you'd love yourself a great camera buy this phone, if you care less about cameras and more about the rest buy LG G2, like 1/3rd of the prize and better in most things.
Seriously companies should increase their upgrade cycle to 2 years. That way we'd get better software for longer and on the hardware side we'd actually get imprpvements. This phone is a disgrace and a money-grab...
Hmm, not very happy about the battery life. I guess the quantum display takes a big toll on the less than capable snapdragon 808. I don't care about removable batteries or microSD cards if I can't even reach a day on a single charge with my average use. Shame, really.
AnonD-312696, 23 May 2015I'm very disappointed. Not the g3 I've been waiting for. 2014 processor&gpu, larger and t... moreHopes will be pretty high for the next note flagship by samsung. I wish they won't remove the sd slot. That would be shooting their own foot.
AnonD-89109, 22 May 2015Someone is definitely trying too hard to impress others about this phone. But the problem i... moreYep. He is trying way too hard. As if he is on LG's payroll. Just let people decide for themselves if this phone is worth the hype.
I'm very disappointed. Not the g3 I've been waiting for.
2014 processor&gpu, larger and thicker than g3,worse battery life(which was horrible in g3,to begin with),debatable improvements on screen quality,camera doesn't bring improvements in every are (bitrate is subpar),inadequately positioned loudspeaker,still childish UI,worse audio quality,no FM radio... Even with all these niggles,it isn't the worst 2015 flagship (m9 proudly holds the throne). I hate this year!!
I really wanted to get this one but it has super poor battery it seems...worse than the M9 or even the Zenfone 2 and also the screen has poor outside legibility just like the other 2 mentioned. It's tricky for me as I don't want to go S6 (also I don't like Apple). Any advices which to get from those three:
P.S. I need a good sreen and good battery life. I don't play 3d games on it. Hearthstone will be the most complex game I will play.
